The cover of Tokyo Babylon #1 for the CLAMP PREMIUM COLLECTION edition has been announced in a press release published today by Kadokawa!
The first and second volumes will be released on June 3, with two volumes coming out every month.
Those who purchase all 7 volumes can apply to receive an acrylic stand based on the cover illustration of the classic version of Tokyo Babylon volume 1 (published by Shinshokan in 1991).
Here’s the full release schedule for Tokyo Babylon in CLAMP PREMIUM COLLECTION:
June 3rd, 2022: volumes 1 & 2
July 4th, 2022: volumes 3 & 4
August 4th, 2022: volumes 5 & 6
September 2nd: volume 7
The official Twitter account of Young Ace magazine (Kadokawa’s current official magazine for all things CLAMP) has made a short promotional video about it:
Waaaaaahh so cool! *_* So the color does match the original version! Let’s hope it stays this way for the next volumes!
I love Subaru’s outfit! The style looks good too! Very contemporary but still true to Tokyo Babylon‘s spirit.
I love the fact that we already have the cover of volume 1 even before we got the cover of XXXHOLiC #19! Also, we have the full schedule already. Thank you Kadokawa for such efficiency!! Also, good to know it will keep being 2 volumes per month.
Now, the bonus is indeed different than XXXHOLiC, which has a postcard for each volume and a postcard binder for those who purchase all volumes and apply for it. But I thought each volume would come with an extra, but apparently it will be a bonus only if you buy all 7 (and if you live in Japan).
HAPPY CLAMP DAY, EVERYONE! ♡
