This week’s issue of anan magazine (issue 2230) is announcing that CLAMP will be in charge of the illustrations for a new Haken Anime! spinoff novel series.

The spinoff is entitled Oto to Koe no Bouken (Adventure of Sound and Voice) and will begin serialization two weeks from now, on issue 2232 of anan. The series will be written by the same author as Haken Anime!, Mizuki Tsujimura.

The announcement came in this week’s issue of anan magazine, which also contains a 4-pages recap of CLAMP’s creative trajectory with highlights by Mizuki Tsujimura.

The original Haken Anime! novel was serialized in anan magazine from 2012 to 2014, each chapter featuring a colored illustration drawn by CLAMP. The chapters were compiled and released in book format in 2014. A paperback edition was later released in 2017. In 2019, it received a stage play adaptation.

This is great news! I love the fact that they seem to be getting more active in 2021 ^-^

  1. Thank you so much for the news!
    So they had something specific to announce in anan after all, I thought it might have just been about their 30th Anniversary and their trajectory as mangakas during these 3 decades (well, they did do that!)
    I never read these novels but I certainly remember them and the artworks too!
    New CLAMP illustrations are always welcome so I will be looking forward to seeing these in the future ^^


  2. Reblogged this on CuteSherry and commented:
    I was expecting that at all, I wasn’t thinking about Haken Anime right now to be totally honest, my mind has been full of the new Sakura nendoroid since it was so suddenly announced yesterday out of nowhere hahaha
    But I was expecting this issue of Anan since last wednesay, when they announced that CLAMP would have featured in an article in this issue, and I see that they had something specific to announce after all, and that it wasn’t just an article about their trajectory as mangakas these past 30 years.

    I’ve looked into it since last week on Amazon Japan but the magazine was never available for neither preorder before the release date, not direct order now that it’s officially out…
    I will still check it out the next few days, but I won’t be holding my breath either, these past 7-8 months have probably the most problematic since I started using Amazon Japan almost 15 years ago, due to more and more items not being shipping overseas, and I’m talking books and magazines here, meaning the kind of things with no restrictions and no reason whatsoever not to be shipped 😦
