The covers of volumes 2 and 3 of X for the CLAMP PREMIUM COLLECTION edition have been announced!
Wow, so unexpected! We already have Kotori and Fuuma? No Hinoto and no Kanoe, but I think they might still be using elements from the tarot cards, except they are not following the original order. For instance, Kotori is holding a flower and the composition (Kamui behind her on his back) is very similar to the tarot card. The color pink is also the same. On the other hand, we don’t know Fuuma because he hasn’t appeared in a tarot card yet. Could this cover be a little foreshadowing of the tarot card he would feature? If that’s the case, does this mean he will be The Sun? (there is a sun at the back) Does this mean the color of volume 19 will be this shade of blue?
Kotori looks great! This style suits her very well.
I guess we can expect Kamui to be the common character of all covers (and his ragged red cloth)? I actually love this idea, I don’t mind seeing 19 new Kamuis at all.
The symbol in the back also changes for each cover. It shall be fun to look at all the 19 different symbols and patterns that they will come up for every cover!
The colors are so unexpected as well, We have pink and blue instead of purple and green (like the classic edition).
Between the two covers, volume 2 is my favorite! Kamui and Kotori look great and I love the wings in the back.
