On November 1st, online store Amazon.co.jp celebrated its 10th Anniversary and the 4 members of CLAMP attended the party.
The event was held to announce Amazon.co.jp’s “Hall of Fame” and CLAMP was nominated in the comic artists category. The artists were chosen based on sales and customers’ reviews.
Here are some pictures from the event (click to enlarge them):

In a not-so-unrelated note, today marks 10 years since I became a CLAMP fan/follower. 10 years ago the 1st episode of the CCS anime premiered on Brazilian Cartoon Network and the journey began! CLAMP enters Amazon.co.jp Hall of Fame on the same day I celebrate 10 years of knowning them. Cool coincidence, huh? =)
