Episode 24 is up for download at CLAMP no Kyoto Agaru Sagaru‘s official website.
They opened the show talking about their mascots since that was the subject of a message from a listener that Nekoi read.
They talked some interesting trivia like the size of their mascots: Mokona is the size of a hand palm (around 20cm), Kero is the size of a 3-months old cat (around 24-25 cm).
Next, they read a message from a listener about their characters wearing kimonos in their works, Mokona talked mostly here. I think she talked about the things she consider when drawing a kimono for certain characters (wrinkles, belt width, character’s body type etc).
After that, they moved the topic to a more nostalgic one and discussed about their early events such as CLAMP IN WONDERLAND 1 and 2 (not the video, there was a CLAMP IN WONDERLAND 2 event in the 90s). They went very nostalgic here talking about details around these events, like the doujinshi they did featuring characters from JoJo Bizarre’s Adventure, Sonic and their own characters.
They also talked about more recent events, such as the CLAMP FESTIVAL and their attendance in the Nagoya edition in 2012.
I think Ohkawa asks each of them their favorite thing about events. I think Nekoi replied for her it’s all the interesting food and Mokona said she likes the Art Exhibitions.
Although it’s not really an event, they talked about the Animate x Card Captor Sakura cafe that is going to be held throughout 2016.
Lastly, they talked about a “mystery tour” that they would like to do? I’m not sure what this is but I think it’s a Japanese term. Is it like a clue game? Ohkawa then mentions something about wanting to do something in the summer? More events? Or is it this mystery tour thing? I couldn’t understand this part and it’d be great if anyone could confirm this to us.
Next week will have Mika Kikuchi (Mokona’s seiyuu) as guest.
A “mystery tour” is a popular type of tour in Japan especially among middle aged women(so basically CLAMP & contemporaries) and seniors. Advertised in newspapers or signs on trains/buses, a mystery tour is usually a day trip to an undisclosed location with a group. Although it’s a ‘mystery’ as you’re getting closer to the site you can guess where you’re going (typically a famous hot spring and/or castle). In general many Japanese folk enjoy pre-planned tours because they don’t want the stress of creating their own itinerary for their days off. The tour price includes transportation to the site, site admission, and lunch (most popular is a traditional Japanese meal that includes a local specialty).
(As an aside the cafe is being considered an “event” by Animate so that’s probably why CLAMP mentioned it with the other events).
Thank you SO much for clearing this up!
