CLAMP PREMIUM COLLECTION: Tokyo Babylon #3 & #4 covers

The covers of Tokyo Babylon #3 and #4 for the CLAMP PREMIUM COLLECTION edition have been announced!

As promised, we have finally Seishirou debuting CPC on the cover of volume 3, along with Subaru, looking like gangsters. Hokuto is back on the cover of volume 4 with Mokona fulfilling her promise that she would draw Subaru in clothes that could be worn by all genders.

As for the hot topic of Seishirou’s shoulders length, you can’t really tell how wide they look due to the furry accessory he’s wearing over them, but Seishirou looks cool af and that’s all that matters.

The cover colors keep following the same pattern as the classic edition.

Volume 7 will probably feature Subaru alone, so is it going to be for volumes 5 and 6? Again Seishirou and Hokuto, respectively? Or are we getting one (or two) cover with the trio?

I loved them!

The third and fourth volumes will be released on July 4, with two volumes coming out every month.

Here’s the upcoming release schedule for Tokyo Babylon in CLAMP PREMIUM COLLECTION:

July 4th, 2022: volumes 3 & 4
August 4th, 2022: volumes 5 & 6
September 2nd: volume 7

In addition, Character PVs for Subaru, Hokuto and Seishirou have been added to Kadokawa‘s Anime Channel on YouTube as “Shorts:

As it was previously shared by CLAMP in one of their twitter spaces, we have Hokuto and Subaru on the cover and the color this time is yellow, just like the classic series. We can also see some of the more contemporary, hip-hop fashion elements on this cover that Mokona-sensei said that she wanted to include.

It looks super great!

The first and second volumes will be released on June 3, with two volumes coming out every month.

Here’s the full release schedule for Tokyo Babylon in CLAMP PREMIUM COLLECTION:

June 3rd, 2022: volumes 1 & 2

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, just like they did for volume 1:

It will be released on May 6 and it’s the final XXXHOLiC volume for CLAMP PREMIUM COLLECTION. It can be ordered via Amazon Japan.

So indeed we had Watanuki all by himself and what’s more, doing the exact same pose as Yuuko in volume 1 cover, except it’s mirrored:

It’s been a fun ride waiting for these new covers every month! Now it’s Tokyo Babylon‘s time!

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! ♡

CLAMP PREMIUM COLLECTION: XXXHOLiC #17 & #18 covers

The covers of XXXHOLiC #17 and #18 for the CLAMP PREMIUM COLLECTION edition have been announced!

They will be released on April 6. They can be ordered via Amazon Japan (volume 17, volume 18).

My guesses were half-right! We have older Doumeki on the cover of 17 but we don’t have an older Kohane on the cover of volume 18. Instead, we have Yaobikuni, becoming one of the few selected yokai to make it to the covers.

My bet for volume 19 now is Watanuki all by himself, or maybe with older Kohane? xD

Only one volume left for XXXHOLiC now. Volume 19 will come out on May 6th.

XXXHOLiC Rei will not be released immediately after. Instead, the next CLAMP PREMIUM COLLECTION series will be Tokyo Babylon, to be released by Kadokawa.

CLAMP PREMIUM COLLECTION: XXXHOLiC #15 & #16 covers

The covers of XXXHOLiC #15 and #16 for the CLAMP PREMIUM COLLECTION edition have been announced!

They will be released on March 4. They can be ordered via Amazon Japan (volume 15, volume 16).

I’m so glad the Oden Fox got its cover! It makes perfect sense!

And as expected, Watanuki on the cover of volume 16, given that this is the volume where “Rou” begins.

Really interesting how they have kept it 100% XXXHOLiC, not using the Tsubasa characters.

What’s next for volumes 17-19? Possibly older Doumeki and older Kohane? We never saw older Himawari so I don’t think she is an option. Is Watanuki getting the 19th cover alone?

These covers are so gorgeous!

Here’s the upcoming release schedule for XXXHOLiC:

April 6th 2022: volumes 17 & 18
May 2022: volume 19 & ?

CLAMP PREMIUM COLLECTION: XXXHOLiC #13 & #14 covers

The covers of XXXHOLiC #13 and #14 for the CLAMP PREMIUM COLLECTION edition have been announced!

They will be released on February 4. They can be ordered via Amazon Japan (volume 13, volume 14).

Maru and Moro? At this point? xD I feel like CLAMP are cheating, haha!

Funny how Yuuko is sitting in both of them so as she’s on he same height as them =)

Here’s the upcoming release schedule for XXXHOLiC:

March 4th 2022: volumes 15 & 16
April 2022: volumes 17 & 18
May 2022: volume 19 & ?

CLAMP PREMIUM COLLECTION: XXXHOLiC #11 & #12 covers

The covers of XXXHOLiC #11 and #12 for the CLAMP PREMIUM COLLECTION edition have been announced!

They will be released on January 6. They can be ordered via Amazon Japan (volume 11, volume 12).

I was right about Kohane (finally!), and so happy to see Neko Musume! I thought her timing was over but yay! I do think this is the first time we see Neko Musume colored by CLAMP.

Really nice covers, both of them.

It’s getting harder and harder to predict the next covers, but I’m gonna go with TRC!Sakura and… TRC!Syaoran? Or Clow…?

Here’s the upcoming release schedule for XXXHOLiC:

February 2022: volumes 13 & 14
March 2022: volumes 15 & 16
April 2022: volumes 17 & 18
May 2022: volume 19 & ?

CLAMP PREMIUM COLLECTION: XXXHOLiC #9 & #10 covers

The covers of XXXHOLiC #9 and #10 for the CLAMP PREMIUM COLLECTION edition have been announced!

They will be released on December 6. They can be ordered via Amazon Japan (volume 9, volume 10).

At least one of my predictions were right (Haruka)! Seeing Kuda Kitsune in its real form was a surprise, but I should have seen it coming.

I keep thinking Yuuko is looking more like her classic self, which is great.

My predictions for volumes 11 and 12 are Kohane and…. TRC!Sakura? I wonder if we will be seeing some of the Tsubasa cast on the covers at all. But Kohane should definitely be in one of them.

Here’s the upcoming release schedule for XXXHOLiC:

January 2022: volumes 11 & 12
February 2022: volumes 13 & 14
March 2022: volumes 15 & 16
April 2022: volumes 17 & 18
May 2022: volume 19 & ?

CLAMP PREMIUM COLLECTION: XXXHOLiC #7 & #8 covers

The covers of XXXHOLiC #7 and #8 for the CLAMP PREMIUM COLLECTION edition have been announced!

They will be released on November 5. They can be ordered via Amazon Japan (volume 7, volume 8).

This time we got pretty vibrant colors as backgrounds.

My predictions were right! But then again, it wasn’t hard to guess at all…

I think Yuuko is looking more like her classic self on the cover of volume 7. On the cover of volume 8, she is looking a bit younger again ^^” Also, isn’t it the first time we see the Spider Lady colored by CLAMP?

My predictions for volumes 9 and 10 are Haruka and Kohane, although I would love to see Neko Musume in color for the first time (but I don’t know if she is popular/important enough for that).

Here’s the upcoming release schedule for XXXHOLiC:

December 2021: volumes 9 & 10
January 2022: volumes 11 & 12
February 2022: volumes 13 & 14
March 2022: volumes 15 & 16
April 2022: volumes 17 & 18
May 2022: volume 19 & ?
