CLAMP enters Amazon.co.jp “Hall of Fame”

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? =)

  1. That’s a pretty interesting news ^^
    I guess I somehow participated in it with all the Clamp related stuff I’ve bought from amazon.jp along the years XD
    How curious, I passed my order today, on their 10th anniversary, but didn’t notice anything at all, I guess it’s because I went directly to the items I was interested in and skipped the homepage ^^;

        My! You’ve got a lot to celebrate today, don’t you? 😀 It’s actually great you remember the date in which you discovered Clamp and became fan of their works, I sincerely don’t ;_; I can only tell I was very likely around 13 years old~

        And indeed, I noticed too that they were looking down aha~ I don’t think they like attention that much, we are talking about women who didn’t show their faces for many maaany years after all 😉

        • It was a big day for most Brazilian CLAMP fans, so I’m not alone, it’s easy to remember because of that (other people are celebrating today too xD). So even if I had forgotten, other people would remind me =)

  2. My trip down the CLAMP rabbithole isn;t as easy as yours. I was…6-ish when I watched CCS for the fist time and loved it so that was… 12 years ago. Of course, I didn’t really know about CLAMP or anime, I just loved the show. Then in 7th grade, I disocovered xxxHolic and it went downhhill from there! That was 7 years ago roughly.

    Ahh~ I remeber it like it was yesterday… I was in gym calss, bored as hell (I HATE gym) and on top of that it was free gym. I had left my book in my locker, so I way dying. Then, wehn I put my hand down to lean back, I touched the cover of a book. I looked and saw Holix, Volume 2. I grabbed the book and opened it to pages 16-17 and started reading it backwards! XD

    The guy who actually owned the book came over and showed me how to read it. Oh you have NO idea how much it changed my life to read about other diminsions… I beelive that’s also when I wanted to be like Yuko-sensei…
