  1. Thanks for all the news! And glad seeing you posting something on your LJ account, I hope you won’t abandon it! >.<

    I was surprised to see volumes for both series, somehow, I had the feeling there weren't enough chapters for it.

    A new CCS illustration was revealed today, Halloween themed, it really looks great ^__^ I posted the pics on my LJ page, and you can also see them HERE
    Even while knowing it would all be coming to an end soon enough, I was still sad to hear about the end of the game 😦 These new artworks were the only thing always being released on time, unlike their other 3 on going series…I think Clamp should have done it one a time if the releases were going to be so messed up!


    • I don’t plan on dropping LJ anytime soon =) It’s just that lately there aren’t many news to begin with =(

      Thanks for the Halloween pic!

      I think it was your post I saw the other day wondering how long the contract would last and if it would be a 1-year contract — and it really was!

      It was fun while it lasted. It was nice to get the new pics, even if they are all cropped !
