Episode 20 is up for download at CLAMP no Kyoto Agaru Sagaru‘s official website.

They started the show reading a message from a listener talking about the “Syaomatsu-san” drawing that they did for Episode #17.

Then, they celebrated Satsuki Igarashi’s birthday (Feb. 8). (That’s not very fair since they didn’t mention anything for Nekoi’s birthday in January =P)

Some more seiyuu talk… some more “Syaomatsu” talk…

Then, they moved the conversation to detective stories (they played the CLAMP Gakuen Tanteidan TV anime opening theme song, Peony Pink by ALI PROJECT, but that is not included in the podcast, as usual). Ohkawa is a big fan of detective stories as you may know, so she asks the others what and theirs. Mokona answers that she likes the “Mitarai” series, by Soji Shimada. I couldn’t understand the other members’ favorites because it’s all Japanese works.

They spent the rest of the episode talking about detective novels and their movie/drama adaptations.

Satsuki herself also tweeted, thanking everyone for the birthday wishes:

New CLAMP project ahead?

The past weeks have been rather quiet, haven’t they? Hope you’re all doing ok and still loving CLAMP =) Here’s some news to make you all excited then!

Today CLAMP member Satsuki Igarashi posted a message in CLAMP-NET.COM where she mentioned being on a business dinner about a new project!

よっぱーでーす(笑(。

新しい企画で顔合わせ&お食事会。お会いした方はとてもじめに色々と考えて下さっていました。発表はもう少し先になると思いますが、お楽しみに。

She didn’t give any further details about it but she said to be very excited and that an official announcement should be followed soon.

Quite foreshadowing, huh? Whatever it is, I’m already excited! Stay tuned everyone!

On another news, here is the cover for 20 Mensho ni Onegai!! for the CLAMP CLASSIC COLLECTION editions:

It will be released on March 03.

Kadokawa put up a hot site for the CLAMP CLASSIC COLLECTION editions, you can check the previous covers there.

CLAMP designs Yui Sakai’s helmet, more

Japanese short track athlete Yui Sakai has posted over at her official blog pictures of a helmet with stickers designed by CLAMP (Tsubaki Nekoi).

In her blog entry, Sakai says she’s a huge CLAMP fan.

CLAMP has previously expressed their support for Sakai in last year’s Winter Olympic games in which she as competing by making a drawing of her.

In her Private Board, CLAMP member Nanase Ohkawa wrote that she hopes the helmet will bring luck to Yui Sakai.

On a different note, slightly trivial, Satsuki Igarashi posted a picture in her Private Board of a t-shirt with a lotus flower designed by Mokona. Nanase Ohkawa asked if the t-shirt could be washed, for which Satsuki replied that yes, it can be washed because a special painting was used to draw it. Satsuki plans to wear the shirt during this winter. Here’s the picture of the t-shirt:

On yet a different note, the Tokyo Bridal Festa official website launched a special hot site to promote the wedding dress designed by CLAMP that will be shown at the two days’ event on the 23rd and 24th of December.

There are no pictures yet, the wedding dress will be official revealed only during the event.

Who else thinks they are making a big deal over this? Hopefully this is only the beginning of the CLAMP BRIDAL project?

What’s in CLAMP’s bags?

As some of you might know, March 3rd is celebrated the Girl’s Day in Japan. CLAMP member Nanase Ohkawa wrote a very curious describing what each CLAMP member carry inside their own bags. Some say that you can tell about a girl by knowing what’s inside her bag, right? So let’s find out!

I don’t know if some of you are interested in that sort of trivia info about our favorite mangaka group, but here it is:

Girl’s Day

Today is March 3, the Doll Festival.

Speaking of which, it’s said that if you look inside a girl’s bags, you’ll know how her room looks. From what’s inside the bag, you can know what things she has in her room.

I don’t know whether that’s quite true or not, at least for us.

Igarashi-san…inside her bag, which has a lot of patterns, there’s definitely a book and a box for “useful things.” It seems she always has them arranged, but though they’re necessary when they’re needed, it doesn’t seem like she brings them out that often.

Ohkawa-san…her bag is small. Fundamentally, there aren’t many things in it. But there are several books, and always her PC and such, so it’s not light.

Nekoi-san…it’s consistently arranged prettily, but the size of the bag changes from its original to bigger, depending on whether she has band-aids or medicine and such in it, and it’s pretty heavy.

Mokona-san…the bag itself is cute, but inside are various tools and devices, so it’s fundamentally chaotic. When she can’t bring out the things she needs, it’s because they’re missing in action inside it.

That’s it (laughs).

Translation heartily provided by starlady38 =)

It pretty much reflects each CLAMP member, I think. Satsuki, the group’s designer, has a bag full of patterns; Ohkawa, the writer, has a PC and books; Nekoi, the neat one (her booth is the most organized), has the most organized bag; Mokona, the cutest and messiest (her booth is the most cramped one xD), has the more chaotic one.

I found it pretty interesting 😄 Hope you liked it =)
