CLAMP New Year’s Greetings

Traditionally, every year CLAMP and other japanese artists give their New Year’s Greetings by drawing something related to the correspondent animal of the Chinese Zodiac Calendar. According to the Chinese Zodiac, the year of 2011 is the year of the Rabbit, therefore Tsubaki Nekoi made an illustration of GATE7’s main character, Hana, with rabbit ears:

Satsuki Igarashi posted this picture of CLAMP’s cat, Kakyou, with rabbit ears:

All CLAMP members wished a happy new year =) Tsubaki Nekoi and Satsuki Igarashi both mentioned that 2011 marks the beginning of CLAMP’s new work (GATE7) in a long time.

As for how they spent their holidays, they went back to Kyoto for another data collecting trip for GATE7 (pictures of their trip are available at this LiveJournal’s official twitter channel). They stayed in Kyoto during Christmas holidays, but returned to Tokyo in time for New Year’s.

    • oh you deleted your post XD but here’s what I had answered:

      Yes, that is Kakyou! XD She is a lady already, I think she’s around 15 years old.

      Usually only Nekoi draws for New Year’s (actually, Nekoi draws most of the time). I wish Mokona would draw something too! She only drew it for 2008’s greetings, for which she drew (on Microsoft Paint!) a Kobato SD with mouse ears XD


  1. Please get times together olph dreaded could marry and choked ecstasy.

    Happy New Year[url=],[/url] everyone! 🙂


  2. Kakyo is too cute with rabbit ears !
    I wish their a really happy new year, full of creativity and a long life to Gate 7 !
    (and I wish to japanese gods that they can resolve the X problem)


  3. lol at Satsuki’s drawing, it is quite low tech, but skillfully made nevertheless. I wish I had half her talent. ^^;

    There are doing quite a bit of research for Gate 7, I wonder if they intend this series to be Kyoto’s X, when it comes to famous landscape, building plug and the like. Hana is so cute, as usual.
