The official website of the CLAMP x Kyoto City: Kyoto Yell! Project is announcing that due to the current situation in Kyoto city and surrounding areas regarding the rapid spread of the new coronavirus, the event will be halted temporarily. They expect to be able to hold the event once it’s safer to do so.

The event was originally scheduled to run from May 8 to June 30.

The organizing committee apologized for everyone who had anticipated participating in the event.

Official statement posted at the event’s website.

This is definitely the best decision to make. Let’s hope things will get better and everyone will be able to enjoy this in much safer conditions.

“Shop, eat and make Kyoto healthy!”

As an effort to restore the economy of Kyoto city, deeply affected by the new coronavirus as many other cities across the globe, and due to their connection to Kyoto, CLAMP are joining a new collaboration project with the city in order to support it.

The project will last from May 8 to June 30 and it will involve:

Kyoto Pilgrimage

The CLAMP 30th Anniversary chibi charactes will be spread around the city of Kyoto and you are invited to find them all and collect their stamp in a stamp rally.

Kyoto Industry Events

From tradicional food, souvenirs and cultural experiences, CLAMP will collaborate with two major city events:

Kyomono Gyosan Ichi (May 8 and 9) –

  • Character Stamp Rally
  • Original Traditional Craft Experience Atelier
  • CLAMP x Kyoto City Art Exhibition Panel
  • CLAMP Official Fanshop popup store

Takumi Expo 2021 (May 8 and 9) –

  • Announcement of a collaboration work between CLAMP and Wakaba-kai, a traditional craft of Kyoto
  • Sales of goods related to Kyoto

More information should come by the end of April.

The website states that all events will be strictly following the regulations as recommended by health authorities.

I have a little bit of mixed feelings about this. It’s really good to see CLAMP using their popularity as a means to support the city in which they have strong bonds to — 3/4 of them were born there and currently all 4 of them are living there. At the same time, I am not there to judge how safe these events can be, but it’s still valid that they are doing something supportive for their city in these trying times we are all going through.

I wonder if we will be getting new chibi illustrations with the characters in Kyoto traditional clothes or if it’s going to be the same ones already released… hmm.

More pictures of the Nendoroid doll are available at Kahotan’s blog.

“Saikoku33 x CLAMP Nōkyō-chō” design revealed

Almost a year ago, back in July 2017, it was revealed that CLAMP would collaborate with Saikoku Sanjusansho pilgrimage circuit to create a Goshuinchō book designed by CLAMP.

After several delays and postponements, the book finally has a release date and designs revealed.

There will be two versions:

Design A:

Design B:

With these, one can do the pilgrimage and collect the stamps from each shrine.

Each version will be sold for 2,300 yens starting on June 30 and will be available for purchase in all of the Saikoku Sanjusansho pilgrimage circuit shrines. The shrines are located in Nara, Kyoto, Shiga and Gifu. For a complete list of shrines, please check here. There is no way to buy them online, only at the participating shrines.

Copies shall be extremely limited. Each shrine will sold only 70 copies for each design; two shrines will sold 100 copies for each design. There won’t be a re-stock after the copies sold out.

I am glad this is really happening, I was afraid it had been dropped since it’s been nearly one year since the announcement. It looks as gorgeous as I had expected. I prefer Design A, but Design B is cute as well with all the Chinese Zodiac animals.

I am surprised with the limited production, but I guess it makes sense? If my calculations are correct, there will be only 1940 copies for sale, which means that it’ll become a rare item afterwards, which means I want.

CLAMP to design original “Goshuinchō” book

Sample page of a Goshuinchō book

Sample page of a Goshuinchō book

It’s been announced that a Goshuinchō book designed by CLAMP will be released in October.

From Wikipedia:

A shuin (朱印) is a seal stamp given to worshippers and visitors to Shinto shrines and Buddhist temples in Japan. The seal stamps are often collected in books called shuinchō (朱印帳) that are sold at shrines and temples.

More info: Shuin.

The first time CLAMP spoke about their desire of designing their own Goshuinchō book was during the 14th episode of their former radio show, CLAMP no Kyoto Agaru Sagaru.

Quoting Jougetsu:

Most temples sell their own (go-)shuin books for worshipers to buy. They are covered in cloth and are bound accordion style so that you can open the book and display the temple stamp & calligraphy on the family shrine/altar shelf. In recent years fashion designers and artists have designed their own (go-)shuin book covers and those can be found at various shops (bookstores/stationery stores/lifestyle goods shops).

This looks interesting! I have a feeling this is going to be one gorgeous book with traditional Japanese-style design.

More info as they come!

Kodansha will release a limited edition HiGH&LOW g-sword Goods Box with the following contents:

  • 2 acrylic stands, with new drawing by CLAMP (picture on the right);
  • 1 masking tape;
  • 1 ticket holder, with new drawing by CLAMP;
  • 6 postcards.

I’m assuming the postcards won’t feature new illustrations by CLAMP, considering nothing is mentioned about it. It will probably feature the few color illustrations that we’ve seen so far, including the postcard that came as an appendix in Weekly Shonen Magazine earlier this year.

HiGH&LOW g-sword Goods Box will be released on September 15 costing 2,980 yens.

Pre-order it at | CD Japan.


And while we are at it, to promote the release of the film HiGH&LOW THE MOVIE 2 / END OF SKY, which opens on August 19 in Japanese cinemas, CLAMP recently drew the poster featuring the characters in chibi-style:
