Some Famitsu article reports that a translated version of the book is being considered for a future release, although it’s not mentioned which language.
The other information has already been shared elsewhere and you can check my previous post for them, but this key visual is brand new.
Yesterday, the GIFT performance was held at the Tokyo Dome and two other illustrations were published on the special newspaper that was being distributed at the venue:
The color palette in the key visual is different than the one from the newspaper, so I wonder if it’s related to the story or if the ones shared at the newspaper were only proof of concept ones.
I prefer the key visual one. It looks gorgeous and more polished.
CLAMP trended once again on twitter in Japan today after this news piece was published:
The GIFT picture book will be released on September 1st.
