    • omg, I just noticed: breaks for both series 2 months in a row! D: I suppose they deserve a breather, we are too used to being spoiled by these workaholic women, others mangakas disappears for months/years….The thought of them ending their careers all together at some point in the future is pretty scary >.


  1. Double break for both series! I hope they take a good rest and then start in November with bigger chapters….
    With monthly issues and so few pages ( specially for Drug & Drop), it is a torture….
    However, the most important thing is that all the four mebers are well and healthy


  2. Probably repeating myself here, but any news as to when the manga will be released? Drug & Drop, I mean.

    Cause I saw on one site that it was going to be licensed. Don’t know if it’s true or not.


  3. Two months ? I was already thinking it was a slow year for Clamp… Well, they more than deserve some vacations anyway.
    But I guess the postponing of Gate 7 chapter 19 means the volume 4 I saw listed on a french website for October 2012 was, as I supposed, a wrong information.

    Well, enough of being sad. I will believe that they take two months to prepare for the return of X !!!!
