It’s been announced that this week’s issue of Young Magazine will have a special chapter of XXXHOLiC in collaboration with Suga Shikao’s new song Anata hitori dake shiawase ni naru koto wa yurusa renai no yo (あなたひとりだけ 幸せになることは 許されないのよ).

The song is part of Suga Shikao’s new album, THE LAST, which will be released on January 20, 2016.

Entitled “‘XXXHOLiC’ Special Edition inspired by Suga Shikao’s ‘Anata hitori dake shiawase ni naru koto wa yurusa renai no yo'”, the special short comic is Suga Shikao’s desire to represent the song in an illustrated format and the invitation to CLAMP came from Suga Shikao himself, and he describes it as a “dream collaboration”.

Check out the CM for this collaboration below:

This week’s issue of Young Magazine is also supposed to carry a new XXXHOLiC Rei chapter, it is unclear whether the chapter is still scheduled (as according to CLAMP-NET.COM) or not.

CLAMP x Washizu raws, CLAMP in CARDLAND news

Remember the CLAMP x Washizu oneshot published earlier this month in Kindai Mahjong Original? Raws are now available in this gallery.

Credits go to , who scanned it (thanks for letting me know about it!) and , who sent the pages to .

Translations can be found here, also thanks to ^__^

And yet we have some more CLAMP in CARDLAND news, the official website has been updated again with previews of this Series’ special cards:

On the top left, Girls’ Sea.
On the top right, Boys’ Sea.

I liked that the two of them together form a full illustration, but I expected way more from Boys’ Sea, the composition looks poor.

Chii is gorgeous, Hikaru is so small! And Rayearth is in the background too!

Special thanks to Abyl for letting me know about it ^_~

EDIT: Bigger version of Girls’ Sea:

CLAMP x Washizu first pictures

Here’s a few shots from the one-shot that CLAMP drew for the September issue of Kindai Mahjong Original (on sale), taken from Muhyojo and this blog.

The one-shot was 4-pages long with no color pages.

The art looks so different from their usual style, I would say Nekoi drew most (if not all) of it.

If anyone scans the whole thing I’ll post it here.

CLAMP x Washizu collaboration

This latest issue of Kindai Mahjong Original has an announcement stating that CLAMP will draw a short comic based on the manga Washizu ~Enma no Touhai~ (ワシズ―閻魔の闘牌―) in its September issue.

The announcement says that this is a “dream collaboration“, marking CLAMP’s first contribution to Kindai Mahjong Original magazine.

Kindai Mahjong Original is a magazine derived from Kindai Mahjong, which CLAMP also drew a short comic for in December of 2006.

Washizu is a spin-off manga of Akagi, it is drawn by Keichiirou Hara in collaboration with Akagi creator, Nobuyuki Fukumoto. Washizu is currently on its second chapter.

The September issue of Kindai Mahjong Original, with CLAMP’s short comic, will be released on August 8.

I’m curious about this, of course, but I think it’ll be hard to find any scans of this. Kindai Mahjong is not a very known magazine, its spin-off magazine must be even less known. Let’s hope for the best, though! ^__^
