Kadokawa Shoten will re-release some of CLAMP’s earliest works starting in December 2011 with a new release every month during one year.
The books will be published with soft cover and size A5 (14,8 x 21 cm). The information came with a flyer that came with the 6th Kobato. volume (thank you ozaka_tomoe for letting me know about this!).

It seems Kadokawa acquired Shinshokan’s series and will republish them, along with their own early CLAMP works.
I think these new releases will not follow the original page count (they will probably have more pages), that would explain why there is only one release for 20 Mensho ni Onegai!! and Gakuen Tokkei Duklyon, and also why Tokyo BABYLON will have 3 books and RG Veda, 5.
With this, Kadokawa owns the rights of 14 out of 22 CLAMP titles (Kodansha has 6, Shueisha has 1 and Hakusensha has 1).
Ah~ They republish it! Natsukashii na~ Especially RG Veda and 20 Mensho ni Onegai! XDDD
Now somebody just needs to release them in English, although from what I can remember Tokyo BABYLON is going to be released in Omnibus form by DarkHorse at some point in the future…
I did a mistake in my retyping, the ad said we will get the tankoubon on the 4th of every month, sorry for the mistake. ^^;
And I’ll ask my brother to scan the ad for you, my own scanner is dead since I changed my PC’s OS. ^^;
The last Clamp Gakuen Tanteidan will be a bit slim, unless they add some other stuff. Maybe some Rg Veda short stories, Hidari Te or Miyuki-chan.
Now if only someone could re-publish old CLAMP titles in English
On a side note though it seems like VIZ might be re-releasing X in 3-in-1 volumes in November. Was checking for upcoming GN and comic-trades on amazon and found this.
Re: OT: XXXHolic continues???
Yeah, I saw that too. XXXHOLiC is still incomplete, and CLAMP will resume it in the future for sure =)
