Cybozu is a Tokyo-based software company that provides a web-based groupware known as Cybozu Office, popular in Japan (Wikipedia). Early in 2013, CLAMP tweeted their appreciation for Cybozu:

“We don’t use e-mail, we use ‘Cybozu Live’ to communicate with our editors and partners. It’s really useful. Thank you very much, Cybozu-san!”
Apart from the interview with CLAMP, there is also a talk with Nanase Ohkawa and a Cybozu staff member. To fit the company’s case study purposes, the interview with CLAMP is very Cybozu-centered and how the tool helps their daily routine. The talk with Nanase Ohkawa, on the other hand, touches various social aspects, including her view on minorities.
Although it isn’t very CLAMP-centered, this is the first CLAMP interview in years and we get to see a few pictures of their studio in Kyoto for the very first time.
I urge all the kind people who translate XXXHOLiC and Card Captor Sakura monthly to contribute with a translation to this interview. The CLAMP community would highly appreciate it.
