CLAMP drew an illustration to promote the release of PW-momoko ae ＜CLAMP＞:
On other news, there is a rather strange announcement that appeared on CLAMP-NET.COM today.
The announcement informs that the services for CLAMP@MOBiLE and CLAMP-NET.COM will be terminated on December 31, 2012. It appears that both sites/services will be shut down on this date.
They don’t give any further explanation for the reason behind this, but I would guess (and hope) that they are planning to release a brand new CLAMP website, with a new URL, starting on January 1st, 2013.
I simply cannot see CLAMP without an official website, so let’s wait for more information about this as the date draws closer.
If anyone with japanese knowledge would be willing to provide any further information, that would be much appreciated.
It has no sense they shut down the website for good, so let’s hope you’re right!
Even if they were to no longer draw anything (by no means I am implying that such thing is happening), they would still have a website up to promote their works.
I’m not 100% sure, but they said that only the ‘service’ part is being terminated. I think it’s only the paid/members area that is being shut down. o.O
I was confused by that word “service” too. However, I’ve been looking at the comments from japanese fans on Twitter and on 2ch and they all seem confused as well and some of them are asking the same question that we are asking ourselfs: is this the end of CLAMP-NET.COM?
Well, they did say that the ‘free contents will be continued’.
You could be right, and I hope you are!
But their text is not so clear… lots of japanese fans are confused as well.
There’s more to that sentence.
Some free contents will also end after this year.
Though, I’m not sure exactly what will happen from that official announcement, I hope that there will be new site replacing it, too.

Why CLAMP-NET.COM? ;_______; *cries* I really love the webpage, so many years, so many memories u__________u
I know .______________.
Why kill this site in order to make a new one? Just redesign this one instead…
Sometimes people have the weirdest ideas. I hope a new site comes up, I can’t imagine not having a site to be informed of all about clamp D=
Well, this is definitely most surprising @_@ Especially since the actual website is actually pretty new itself, they redesigned not that long ago, and it’s already good bye? D:
As for the website being terminated forever, impossible.
As you said in a previous post, even in the situation they were to end their career all together at some point, they would have no reason to not leave a good database and History of their works along the years for all their fans. And we are in no such situation: right now they have 2 series going on, a festival happening soon with all the goodies and events that goes with it + their work on Code Geass; in spite of the deafening silence lately, they are actually quite busy ^^;
I already pre ordered the Clamp Pia and the Clamp Fes disc, I will be sharing those new illustrations and such on mid november (I’m getting them then, they come together with 2013 calendars with later release dates…) but I suspect the fans online would already have posted those everywhere long before I got my hands on them aha~
