CLAMP PREMIUM COLLECTION: XXXHOLiC #1 & #2 covers

The covers of XXXHOLiC #1 and #2 for the CLAMP PREMIUM COLLECTION edition have been announced!

They will be released on August 5. They can be ordered via Amazon Japan (volume 1, volume 2).

This CLAMP tweet informs that volumes 3 and 4 will be released on September 6. So for now I guess it is safe to assume that these will be released at a 2-volumes pace every month.

You can see the obi strip in Amazon Japan’s pictures and it mentions something about a XXXHOLiC postcard binder for those who purchase all volumes. The deadline is June 30 2022, therefore I assume by then the XXXHOLiC re-releases will be over. It makes sense if you consider 19 volumes for XXXHOLiC and 4 volumes for XXXHOLiC Rei (23 volumes total, 11.5 months to release them all). I need more information about that postcard binder, though. Does this mean each volume contains a postcard?

Now, about the art, I thought it would be something like that. They had to be generic enough in order to give them all a sense of similarity between them. The digital coloring is also something that makes sense, considering the amount of work but it also contributes to that sense of similarity between all covers. Think about CLAMP No Kiseki and how all covers convey the same atmosphere. It’s the same here.

The style is definitely CLAMP’s current style, as seen mostly by Yuuko. But if this is going to run for the next few years (it all indicates to that), we are gonna watch CLAMP’s style changing through these covers. It’ll be interesting.

I like them, they look minimalist. I am curious to see how their other works will translate into this aesthetic.

Card Captor Sakura Clear Card arc #11 cover and release information

Card Captor Sakura Clear Card arc volume 11 will be released on October 13, 2021. This time, the special edition will come with a costume torso jewelry stand and a miniature picture frame, both based on the cover illustration. The jewelry stand is about 12cm of height and the picture frame is about 5cm.

The extras will come in a special package used to store them.

Here are pictures of the volume cover and the special edition extras:

The price for the special edition is 2,970 yens and it is available for pre-order at Amazon Japan with worldwide shipping.

CLAMP PREMIUM COLLECTION: new versions of CLAMP works with new cover art

CLAMP works published by Kodansha and Kadokawa will get new versions and released under a series entitled CLAMP PREMIUM COLLECTION. All books will feature a new cover illustration by CLAMP.

The first work to be re-released in this new series is XXXHOLiC, in August.

Kodansha‘s website already has details for XXXHOLiC #1 and #2. They will both come out on August 5.

The details for XXXHOLiC #1 and #2 indicate that the books will have B6 format (same as the regular XXXHOLiC volumes) for the price of 880 yens each. The website indicates that these will be monthly releases. Perhaps we can expect at least two new volumes every month.

As for number of pages, the original XXXHOLiC volumes 1 and 2 have 182 pages each, while their CLAMP PREMIUM COLLECTION editions are listed as having 184 and 192 pages, respectively. The additional 2 pages for volume 1 could be for advertisements, but the 10 additional pages for volume 2 is a little strange.

The listings say that the books will have the same design and binding, only the cover art will be different with a new illustration drawn by CLAMP. This is so that the collection will look good on a bookshelf.

Source: CLAMP-NET.COM, Kodansha.

Beginning with XXXHOLiC is most likely a strategy in order to tie in with the musical stage play, which will be opening in September.

With that logic, I would say that the Tokyo Babylon version will most likely come out at the same time as the new TV Anime is airing. Speaking of Tokyo Babylon, I would say that the new versions that have been previously announced by Kadokawa are the CLAMP PREMIUM COLLECTION ones. In other words, I don’t think we will have two new versions for Tokyo Babylon.

Bear in mind that Kadokawa has the rights to RG Veda as well. The only works that have never been republished by a different publisher are Shin Shunkaden (Hakusensha) and GATE 7 (Shueisha). Unless Kadokawa or Kodansha acquired the rights to those two and we don’t know yet, these might be the only two works left out of this collection. All the other works are either originally or acquired by Kodansha or Kadokawa.

This is really great news because not only it means we will have a new illustration for every cover, but also a chance to give a bigger format (B6) for works which were originally published in a smaller format (X, for example).

In terms of release schedule, roughly speaking there are about 162 volumes for all CLAMP works published by Kadokawa and Kodansha. If we are looking at a 2-volumes per month pacing, this could take around 80 months to get them all released (approximately 7 years).

I can’t help but think how they will deal with the works that remain incomplete. I guess they can always go back years from now and release the remaining volumes that will eventually be published in order to complete the collection.

Either way, this is super exciting!

CLAMPSpace – June 15, 2021

DISCLAIMER: This CLAMP Space session happened live on their official Twitter account and recordings were not made available anywhere after the transmission was over. The information available here was gathered in a collaborative effort from multiple reports and impressions from fans from all over the world who took notes as the session was happening live. Please be aware that this report may contain inaccuracies and is subject to corrections.

Netflix’s Grimm project

Only Ohkawa-sensei attended the press conference back in February 2020.

Mokona-sensei mentioned that Michiko Yokote will be writing the scripts for it.

The three characters we see in the teaser are the main characters, but each episode will be different and introduce different characters.

The coloring for the teaser was done by Nekoi-sensei. They did a total of three illustrations but this was the one ended up being chosen by Netflix.

At first, Nekoi-sensei proposed a teaser where the characters were in the woods. They went to the Kyoto botanical garden to collect materials, but it ended up not being chosen.

The title “Grimm” is a tentative one.

The one thing that was decided from the beginning was to have a character with red hair and green eyes.

They have already read all the scripts and they are not really the same as the Grimm Brothers tales.

Talk with Miki Iida (BL Novelist)

The way novels become popular have changed. From weekly magazines to monthly magazines and spread out apart from that as well.
Ohkawa-sensei: “There is this one called “Ou-sama( King’s) ranking” that was on “witto” (*Wit”?) and it grew from there.”
-Mic off-

Talk with Tetsu Inada (Kurogane/Ioryogi voice actor)

He was playing Monster Hunter when CLAMP called him to join them. He began playing Nintendo Switch because Mika Kikuchi invited him. But he says is not good at it.
I got help from my friends so Y have some stock
He plays Super Robot Wars as well. Mostly the ones that you don’t play in real time.
He’s dubbing a game that is about collecting ships (war ships, historic navy).

When looking for Kurogane’s voice actor, there weren’t so much voice with low voices.
Tetsu Inada: “There were a lot of my senpai in there.”

Ohkawa-sensei: “My idea of Kurogane was that he would have a really low voice. I didn’t thought that Fye would have such a high voice though (laughs). But for Kurogane, it was clear for me.”
CLAMP: “Does Inada-san remember the first lines?”
Tetsu Inada: “There were some lines where Kurogane is behaving, but after that it becomes rough.”
CLAMP: “Weren’t you surprised to be called to dub a such a thin character? It may be weird that a thin character has such a low voice. For us Kurogane is such a ‘flat’ character. He doesn’t doubt/hesitate when he is surprised or shocked. Kurogane is steady even though the other characters would be shocked.”
Tetsu Inada: “We saw that in Tokyo Revelations.”
Ohkawa-sensei: “That’s what I thought Inada-san was the perfect match. I thought this person wouldn’t be shocked that easily. As it was said, in Tokyo Revelations, a lot of things happen but even then Kurogane stays calm.”
Mokona-sensei: “Well by that time he had also grown up.”
Ohkawa-sensei: “So the reason we picked Inada-san is because his way of talking was the calmest. And of course the voice itself was good. As for the voice alone, there were other people with suitable voices.”
Tetsu Inada: “You had the image of the One Piece character, right?”
Ohkawa-sensei: Ÿes, ‘Burohi’ (not sure about the name) from One Piece.”
Tetsu Inada: “Although it’s pretty different.”

Ohkawa-sensei: “There’s a lot of people that are aiming to become dubbing actors but I don’t think that is only about having a good voice. Your voice has to be easy to differentiate. Of course you can be differentiated because of your acting as well (laughs).”
Tetsu Inada: “At auditions, I don’t only think about the lines that are given at that instance. I try to show the possibilities of expressing other feeling.”
Ohkawa-sensei: “Yeah, but as the part who chooses, we need to have something that differentiates the voice from others.”
Mokona-sensei: “The one who decides is the director anyways.”
Ohkawa-sensei: “So for you it’s something that you decide each time you go to an audition.”
(…)
“For us we are choosing for a little project so it may be different. I think there’s a small chance (to work together?) in the future but we don’t really know.”

Ohkawa-sensei: “What are you guys talking about?”
Tetsu Inada: “About general stuff, the works we are dubbing, we also get love-consults.”
Ohkawa-sensei: “What’s Inada-san’s tokui?”
Tetsu Inada: “Suta-don (Sutamina Don)”
Ohkawa-sensei: “What’s on it?”
Tetsu Inada: “The main thing is pork, then there’s tama negi, and there’s soup.”
Ohkawa-sensei: “Lately we can’t go to Tokyo, neither you can come to Kyoto. But I think it will be alright next year so we would like you to come to make Suta-don for us.”

Tetsu Inada: “The last time that we met was during the Sengoku Basara‘s Takarazuka play, right?”
Ohkawa-sensei: “Oh yes, that was it. We’ll be inviting you to join us in future spaces as well.”

Ohkawa-sensei: “But anyways, about picking Inada-san for Kurogane, the main reason was that we thought Inada-san was the one that we thought that would be able to survive the hell that would be coming in the story. Thank you so much for participating today.”
Tetsu Inada: “I’ll go back to Monster Hunter.”

Mokona-sensei: “The impressive thing about Inada-san’s voice is that you can easily recognize it. Even if you listen on advertisements outside”.

Ohkawa-sensei: “Since we’re near the end, we’d like to call some listeners to join us. But please don’t say mean things. Somebody that talks about kind things. Maybe two of them. But please be nice. Don’t say something harsh please. We’ll pick Sakamata-san because with that whale icon he/she seems to be a kind person.”

Ohkawa-sensei: “If it’s ok, tell us which was the first CLAMP work you saw/read?”
Sakamata: “I watched Card Captor Sakura on NHK and after that friends at school introduced me to the Tsubasa and XXXHOLiC mangas.”

Ohkawa-sensei: “When reading Tsubasa, how old were you?”
Sakamata: “I was on the 3rd year of elementary school”.
Ohkawa-sensei: “So you may have watched the OAD Tokyo Revelations, right?”
Sakamata: “Yes.”
Ohkawa-sensei: “How cute! What would you say is your favourite CLAMP work?”
Sakamata: “I love RG Veda.”
Ohkawa-sensei: “But at that time you weren’t even born yet, right? What was your impression reading it?”
Sakamata: “When I read the first chapter I didn’t quite understand it.”
Ohkawa-sensei: “Mokona apologizes for it!”
Sakamata: “But after reading the first 10 chapters I got a better idea of it.”
Ohkawa-sensei: “Who is your favorite character?”
Sakamata: “Ashura.”
Ohkawa-sensei: “Child or adult?”
Sakamata: “Adult.”
Ohkawa-sensei: “So good that Mokona put her efforts to it! (laughs)”
Sakamata: “I like Taishakuten as well”
Ohkawa-sensei: “Is that so?”

Sakamata: “I wanted to go to the Japan Expo in 2009 but I had the entry exam for school at that time.”
Ohkawa-sensei: “That’s perfectly understandable.”
Sakamata: “I have the logo mark of that time as my cellphone screen.”
Ohkawa-sensei: “Thank you.”

Ohkawa-sensei: “Last question: Is it better if we let you know before doing the spaces? How much anticipation is good?”
Sakamata: “It’s definitely better if you let us know.”
Ohkawa-sensei: “One hour maybe? Or a day before?”
Sakamata: “That way I can make space on my night schedule and can write down the space report as well.”

Fan talk: Natsumi

Natsumi: “I’m so happy!”
Ohkawa-sensei: “We’re sorry we called you this late. Is there something you would like to ask to CLAMP?”
Natsumi: “I have so many favorites works but I was wondering what makes CLAMP-sensei happy, if there’s a way to show appreciation…?”
Ohkawa-sensei: “Oh don’t worry about that. If you’re happy, we are happy. Which was your first CLAMP work?”
Natsumi: “I watched the second session of the Card Captor Sakura anime. I didn’t have my dad and in Card Captor Sakura, Sakura has lost her mom so I felt very related to that.”
Ohkawa-sensei: “So your favorite one is Card Captor Sakura?”
Natsumi: “It’s Tsubasa. I like Syaoran and everyone as well but I like Subaru.”
Ohkawa-sensei: “So you like Subaru. But if you have to choose between the Subaru from Tokyo Babylon, X and Tsubasa, which one would you pick?”
Natsumi: “X‘s Subaru. I wonder about his happiness. How it is going to be developed.”
Igarashi-sensei: “If you like that much a character, you want them to live happily ever after, right!” (in a strong voice)
Nekoi-sensei: “I just want to see how the story develops.”
Ohkawa-sensei: “But if you say so, some characters won’t become happy. Nekoi is not the one who goes nice with villains, right? You are hard on Seishirou.”

Ohkawa-sensei: “Regarding Subaru, he changes between Tokyo Babylon and X. And in Tsubasa, he becomes like an one-san. (as in being like a “protective” sister) For me Subaru and Kamui In Tsubasa‘s world end up being happy.”
Mokona-sensei: “They are escaping now, so it must be troublesome but…”
Ohkawa-sensei: “There’s also Yuuko, maybe they can ask Watanuki for help. As for the happiness of characters….”
Mokona-sensei: “But it is impossible as it was left…. Even X, if there’s a continuation we have to do somehing about that.”
Ohkawa-sensei: “I want to make it clear that the relationship between Kamui and Fuuma is different from the Subaru and Seishiro one, so you bear that in mind.”
Natsumi: “Is there any new information on the vampire twins?”
Ohkawa-sensei: “Vampire Kamui hates Seishiro a lot. That’s clear. Altought Subaru doesn’t hate Fuuma. Everyone must be thinking that Fuuma won’t achieve his goal. More new information? Wait 3 seconds (laughs).”
Mokona-sensei: “So for Tsubasa, you want Subaru to be happy.”
Nekoi-sensei: “But the Subaru from X, that is connected to Tokyo Babylon, is not for sure he will end up happy.”
Natsumi: “I’d like to think that if everything ends well. Then it will be alright.”
Ohkawa-sensei: “By ending you mean when they die?”

(…)
Ohkawa-sensei: “If Subaru can become happy, it must be some form of happiness that it doesn’t include Seishirou. I don’t think people should put their happiness on other people.”

Mokona-sensei: “If you only think about Seishirou, you may think that wasn’t happiness. But those eyeglasses were cool and he was witty.”
Ohkawa-sensei: “You come up with that?! Oh well the fans will always want characters to end in a happy way. But as for Tokyo Babylon…. I think is hard that it could end on a happy ending.”

“How would it be possible for Tsubasa‘s Seishirou and Subaru to become happy?”
Mokona-sensei: “To not get together. Not saying goodbye either.”
Ohkawa-sensei: “Is that so….”

Fan talk: Misa

Ohkawa-sensei: “You have such a cute Twitter icon.”
Misa: “A friend drew that.”
Ohkawa-sensei: “Do you have a question for us?”
Misa: “Will Sakura become happy?”
Ohkawa-sensei: “She is giving her best now. Sakura will end up happy because of her own efforts.”
Misa: “Now I rest assured.”
Ohkawa-sensei: “But if you say that, we may be making her unhappy (joking). Nah, she will become happy whatever happens.”
(…)
Misa: “I am remembering of the Card Captor Sakura anime episode in which sakura says “zettai daijobu dayo” (everything will be alright), the one with the cards The Light and The Dark, that episode helped me through stuff while going to school.”

Ohkawa-sensei: “Which is your favorite battle costume from the Clow Card arc?”
Misa: “The 1st one is the Platina one. The 2nd one is the one from the second opening.”
Mokona-sensei: “There were some figures of that as well.”

Fan talk: Mitsubachi Ageha

Ohkawa-sensei: “As we said earlier if you have a question do it now since we’re gonna to ask you after that.”
Mitsubachi Ageha: “In the past, when Ohkawa-sensei was using twitter, you mentioned Fye and Kurogane’s birthdays but we never got to know those…” (speaking rather shyly).
Ohkawa-sensei: “You really wanna know? Say it on a loud voice!”.
Mitsubachi Ageha: “Please share with us the birthdays of Fye and Kurogane on twitter later!”
Ohkawa-sensei: “Ok we’ll publish it on twitter. Altough Fye’s one it was decided by Ashura-ou so it may not be the definitive one… Ok, we’ll publish it on twitter in nowadays calendar.”
Mitsubachi Ageha: “It wasn’t on the guidebooks either.”
(…)
Ohkawa-sensei: “What’s your favourite character outside CLAMP works?”
Mitsubachi Ageha: “I only read CLAMP’s work, so…”
Ohkawa-sensei: “So who you like the most?”
Mitsubachi Ageha: “I like them all, but if I have to mention I would say Fye.”
Ohkawa-sensei: “The Fye you met in the manga, right? At that time there was no anime yet.”
Mitsubachi Ageha: “I also could mention Primera. But from Fye I like that he’s kind of a cool guy.”
Ohkawa-sensei: “Aren’t you fond of cool guys (in a bad way)? (laughs)”
(…)
Ohkawa-sensei: “I didn’t know that people would give that much importance to the birthdays. Of course we decide all that data in all works, but for Tsubasa, specially about Kurogane and Fye, we didn’t go that far. Also if we make it public, people would know them better. But since Ageha (the listener) is asking for it we will announce it on Twitter later.”

Final talk

Ohkawa-sensei: “We talked 3 hours today. Next time we’ll inlcude the Netflix producer. There’s the Grimm’s project as well so we will be publishing futher information about it as well. We also had Inada-san with us today, we’d like it to have him again. We also talked to 4 fans, they were really cute! And as we promised earlier, we will announce the birthday of ‘those two’ on twitter later.”

CLAMP x Netflix: “Grimm” anime series project announced

Almost a year and a half after the CLAMP x Netflix collaboration announcement, we finally have more information about it!

CLAMP and Netflix have teamed up to launch the anime series “Grimm” project. CLAMP will be handling the character design, WIT STUDIO will be producing the animation, and Michiko Yokote will be writing the script.

A teaser art has been revealed:

Teaser art for the anime series “Grimm” project.

The project was announced at the Netflix Animation Studio Focus Panel, an online event during the Annecy International Animated Film Festival 2021 in France. The “Grimm” project is based on the fairy tales of the Brothers Grimm, with a story that boldly mixes elements of horror and suspense.

The title of the anime is yet to be decided.

Staff

Character design: CLAMP
Script: Michiko Yokote
Animation studio: WIT STUDIO

Michiko Yokote is a long time CLAMP collaborator. She has worked with CLAMP on the TV Anime of XXXHOLiC, Kobato. and BLOOD-C. WIT STUDIO is a PRODUCTION I.G subsidiary. They are known for animating Shingeki no Kyojin (Attack on Titan).

More info as they come!

Source: CLAMP-NET.COM, Comic Natalie.

This is looking really promising! We waited so long for this but it paid off. The Grimm brothers look really cool. I am looking forward to see all other classic fairy tail characters by the hands of CLAMP! It’ll be interesting to see CLAMP designs in a suspense/horror story. That doesn’t happen very often!

I think this has a bigger international appeal than if this was a completely original anime. After all, the Grimm brothers stories are known internationally.

I love the fact that they used CLAMP’s art for the teaser. They are the big star of this project, after all!

I wonder if WIT will do justice with CLAMP’s style.

The information available here was gathered in a collaborative effort from multiple reports and impressions from fans from all over the world who took notes as the session was happening live. Please be aware that this report may contain inaccuracies and is subject to corrections.

  • Ohkawa-sensei said that they deeply love even the worst villain character of their stories. So even if they may say things about Seishirou, for example, is just blabbering while drinking and should not be taken that seriously. Because if it’s gonna be taken that seriously, they won’t be able to continue with the spaces. It’s true they may have addressed Seishirou’s topic a little too much on the spaces though. But they don’t intend to talk bad things about him.
  • They asked fans for their favourites movies. The first one mentioned was Dune. And Mokona-sensei said she watched the movie first and then read the book
  • They also talked about an anime movie made in China, in which Tsubasa‘s Kamui’s voice actor worked (in the japanese dubbed version).
  • They said they’re going to address this kind of topics in the future (asking for favorites movies and recommendations)
  • Ohkawa-sensei said she likes John Wick and the latest movie rocks (literally said “yabai”)
  • Ohkawa-sensei added: Even if the author talks like this, we want to be judged about our works. Characters are born for those stories and when doing the spaces is just “CLAMP saying weird stuff” (implying to fans to please don’t matter that much about what they say at spaces since they’re just fooling).

Please be aware that this report may contain inaccuracies and is subject to corrections.

  • They had a textile designer joining them, Riku Hozumi (Twitter/Instagram).
  • CLAMP asked about where her “CLAMP experience” started. She answered watching the Magic Knight Rayearth anime and then reading the manga and watching the anime of Card Captor Sakura. She said she likes the many sides (lit. many colours) it can be seen on CLAMP works. The many sides of people.
  • Ohkawa-sensei asked her favourite CLAMP work laughing that it must a question hard to answer when talking directly with the creators. Her favourite CLAMP work is XXXHOLiC. Because she thinks is a story filled with a lot of knowledge.
  • They asked the designer about her work, how she became a designer (whats advices would she give to people starting out), she even got to say/promote her designs online store.
  • Ohkawa-sensei: “When we were drawig HiGH & LOW, Exile Hiro [the producer] was supervising every piece of it so it was really hard. (…) In order to keep the world image of the series they were really exigent.”
  • Mokona-sensei: “Because we usually draw cats and cute little stuff.”
  • Ohkawa-sensei: “But they were asking why we draw this or that. We didn’t understand why some stuff were okay and other weren’t.”
  • Talk about Gouhou Drug/Drug & Drop and its many jewelry and accessories.
  • Ohkawa-sensei: “We like jewelry and such, so it is not an influence of HiGH & LOW that we included in Drug & Drop“.
