Gouhou Drug gets new title “Drug & Drop” (Updated)

The new series of Gouhou Drug will be getting a new title and it’s called “Drug & Drop” (ドラッグ&ドロップ). The information comes from the next issue line up of Young Ace #11.

ドラッグ&ドロップ could also mean “drag and drop”, as used in computer language, but given the context, I am assuming it stands for “Drug & Drop”.

I’m not sure why the change in the title, will it be restarted from the beginning? Maybe the former title Legal Drug was too daring? I remember CLAMP said they had some troubles with the marijuana in the logo.

We’ll have to wait and see.

I like “Drug & Drop” as well, but “Gouhou Drug” ❤

The new series of Gouhou Drug, now called "Drug & Drop", begins on November 4!

Update: The title change is confirmed by website Comic Natalie.

According to the website, the first chapter will come with color page(s) and Drug & Drop will feature the magazine cover.

A textless version of the new promotional illustration can be also found in the article:

With this, CLAMP will be on the cover of two manga magazines on the same day! Young Ace #12 with Drug & Drop and Jump SQ #12 with GATE 7 =)



• Artbook:

Already posted this over at twitter but in case anyone doesn’t know yet, the Kobato. artbook release date has been postponed to October 19.

CLAMP-NET.COM also mentions a “comic cover replacement” (特別付録 コミックス替えカバー) in Jump SQ #12. Maybe an additional cover for volume 1? Not really sure of what that means…

• Comics:

GATE 7 #2 is coming out on November 4.


The BLOOD-C TV Anime ended its main broadcast on TBS channel with 12 episodes. The movie will be released on June 6, 2012 with the same staff and cast .

I really liked the final episode, in fact the final 2 episodes were good and a lot better than the rest. I wish that instead of dragging the plot for 10 whole episodes they could have worked better in building tension for the big revelations, in other words, I think the series’ composition was flawed (and CLAMP’s Ohkawa was in charge of that). The episodes were too repetitive, always following the same formula. I’m glad the mood changed in the final episode, I hope the movie will follow the same atmosphere. The animation was overall very poor, characters were too shallow and creatures too bizarre. I’ll give a 3/10 rate for this since I wasn’t hooked by most of it.
