The first two presentations of MOON SAGA kicked off yesterday in Tokyo and the first reports are starting to appear on the web.
I was hoping there would be some announcement for related side-projects that would involve CLAMP, but apparently there were none. I was also hoping CLAMP would draw more promotional illustrations and goods, but there were also none of that.
From the reports I’ve read, it looks like CLAMP provided some illustrations that appear in the screen during the play. It looks like most of the animation shown on screen were CG.
CLAMP sent flowers to GACKT, as well as PYROTECHNIST, the company which manages CLAMP’s business affairs and is involved in the making of MOON SAGA.
I must confess I’m very disappointed with this project. I’m sure the play experience must be great, but as a CLAMP fan, I was hoping for more involvement on their part (and I don’t know who is to be blamed on this, in fact I don’t even know if someone is to be blamed at all). Maybe I put too much expectation into it…
UPDATE: Here’s another detailed report in english (includes the plot). The end of the play displayed a “To Be Continued” message. There will be probably sequels, which would explain the title “MOON SAGA”.
