Pictures from Kiyokazu Fujimoto’s lecture

hiro_bnk has let me know that the Desucon website has put up a picture gallery including 12 pictures from Kiyokazu Fujimoto’s lecture from June 6.

You can check the pictures here. Make sure to click on the pictures to see them in high resolution.

I spotted one tiny mistake in Fujimoto’s slideshow, CLAMP attended Anime Expo in 2006, not 2007 xD

Really interesting! I loved his slideshow, it looks so neat!


Report from Kiyokazu Fujimoto’s lecture at Desucon 2009 (Updated)

Last month I mentioned that Kiyokazu Fujimoto from CLAMP’s management company Pyrotechnist would give a lecture at the Finnish anime convention Desucon.

The event took place in the last weekend, hiro_bnk-san went to his lecture and has kindly wrote a report about it, which can be found here.

Kiyokazu Fujimoto is the third from the left. On his right is seiyuu Tooru Furuya, who also attended the event.

A few more pictures can be found in the event’s blog.

Here’s some of the highlights of his lecture according to the report:

– CLAMP works whenever they feel like it. They have even drawn on an airplane giving originals back and forth over the benches.
– CLAMP has meetings with a Pyrotechnist member once a week. The contents of the meetings are merchandising and advertisement, never about the content of CLAMP’s works.
– Nanase Ohkawa doesn’t like traveling abroad.
– Tsubasa and XXXHOLiC will end before the end of the year.

I was surprised with Ohkawa not liking travels, LOL at CLAMP working even on the airplane (can’t blame them, 12 hours or more of travel) and the part with “before the end of the year” is too vague if you ask me xD

Update: I was told by hiro_bnk that the Desucon staff recorded the lecture but unfortunately Fujimoto did not want the video put online.

Kiyokazu Fujimoto (Pyrotechnist) to attend Desucon

This is for the people who live in Finland, or near it =)

CLAMP’s executive producer, Kiyokazu Fujimoto, will be giving a lecture at the Finnish anime convention Desucon, to take place on the 6th and 7th of June.

Kiyokazu Fujimoto is the Chief of the project department of Pyrotechnist, the company that works as CLAMP’s managing agent. He has been involved in the production of several CLAMP animes, including XXXHOLiC and CLAMP IN WONDERLAND 2.

According to the website, in his lecture, Fujimoto will cover topics such as working with CLAMP and their publishers, what is Pyrotechnist and what they do, the process of making CLAMP mangas into animes and CLAMP’s future projects. The lecture will given in japanese but translated to english finnish.

In case you’re wondering, yes, the name of Fujimoto’s character of Kobato. was given after him.

Does anyone reading this live in Finland? Or near it? Or knows someone who can go? Sounds like a great lecture that might provide us some inside information about CLAMP and what they might be up to.

I definitely wouldn’t miss it if I lived any nearer the region =)

Also, this is the first time that I heard of someone from Pyrotechnist giving lectures about CLAMP.
