I have not the foggiest idea.
That's just what Wikipedia said.
My best guess would be that the wardrobes in xxxHolic are just so ridiculously ornate that they had to split the work.

I would love to find a true fanmade site that really focuses on the art in each manga, providing solid information on which of the CLAMP women focused on what and details such as that. X/1999 is so elaborate in the backgrounds and all the movements in the fights, in addition to the detailed complexities of the characters' physical appearances. I find that to be so interesting in knowing who dealt with what.

I think that it might actually be at the beginning of each volume.
I don't have my manga with me (I lent some to a friend who has yet to return it, and the rest is in my dad's garage) but I'm pretty sure that they credit the individual members of CLAMP for their specific contributions to the project.

Ah, I will certainly check it out! I found my copies of vol 1 & 3 of Wish, so hopefully those volumes will have what you mentioned. Smile

ooooo! That is such a good buy!! XD But MUST RESIST! (Animazement is only around the corner)

Anyways, I was in Barnes and Noble's picking up vol. 4 of Sailor Moon when I came across this:



I have never seen nor heard for this new manga by CLAMP so I picked up a volume to take a look inside and I litterally saw mixtures between CLAMP's very detail style and simplistic as well. I was really amazed and intrigued. So I researched this manga when I got home to only find out that this manga was just released originally as a one shot in December of 2010 and was serialized in March 2011. According to CLAMP Wiki, this is their newest series!

So I plan to buy the first volume and read it to see if it meets my tastes - lol Anyone else intrigued?

This is the overview from Barnes and Nobles:

"Chikahito Takamoto has always read about the beauty and mystique of Japan's ancient capital city, Kyoto. Now, two years into high school, he's finally visiting there for real. But wandering the grounds of Kyoto's legendary Shinto shrine of Kita no Tenmangu, he chances upon a mystery that his guidebooks didn't prepare him for - two handsome men and an attractive woman, all strangely-garbed, wielding powers...and fighting monsters!

The two men treat poor Chikahito with suspicion - but the girl seems to like him. They aren't worried about what Chikahito's just seen, because they have the power to erase his memory...except for some reason, that power doesn't work! And why does the girl kiss him before sending him away? One thing's for sure: Chikahito is going to be seeing a lot more of these three strangers..."

Gate 7 is pretty good!

But you have to have some background in Japanese history to completely understand the interactions between some of the characters (something I didn't have when I started it).

ahhh clamp
first of let me start by saying CCS is probably one of my most favorite anime of all time, without CCS, I dont know If I would have ever been fully immersed into the anime world, or at least, not at such a young age

ive read a good chunk of their work and to be honest ive got to say that their endings are not their strong point

Tusbasa in its entirety was really bad in my opinion (no offense to TRC fans) and xxxHolic, although its a favorite of mine, has the worst ending of anything ive ever read, ever. 

I love clamp for its potential but I find most of the time they leave me disapointed

did anyone saw Blood-C? one of the worst anime ever. just monsters killing people in the most brutal way possible. and on top of that no storyline. just splatter. very gory.
just look at the video "The Gory Parts of Blood-C" on youtube and you know what i'm talking about.

at least the movie seems to be decent. didnt saw the whole movie it just a 8 minutes teaser and an amv.

I have more than a bit of CLAMP obsession. I have all of their artbooks, on my computer, I have all of Card Captor Sakura in manga and anime, I have Clover in manga, I have Magic Knight Rayearth in manga, the first book of Gate 7, the first book of Kobato, All of Tsubasa Chronicles in manga and Anime. I also have the OVAs of all of CLAMP's manga, the CLAMP in wonderland music videos, almost all of the manga and anime that I can't afford to buy yet on my computer and the OSTs of CLAMP anime on my computer. I also just got all of the books and chess pieces for CLAMP no Kiseki for my birthday. All I need to complete that set is the chess board and magazine holder. Ooh I also made the dress from Card Captor Sakura's second movie when Sakura's in the play. I plan to cosplay with it sometime soon. And I have a mokona and a kero. Smile 

I think my favorite series is Tsubasa Chronicles. I just love seeing Sakura and Syaoran older and it's so cool to see all of the crossovers of the characters.

Oooh my god Selene I need to see your cosplay of that dress! When I first saw it, i really wanted to cosplay that dress. Its so cute. I never did finish Tsubasa. I had watched the first season of the anime and was keeping up with the manga for a time, then i forgot.

The manga is so long, but it's so worth it. Smile And When I actually wear the dress with the wig and everything I'll post a picture. I still have to dye my ballet shoes.

My first CLAMP series I read was Magic Knight Rayearth...I liked it when I was younger but it's not really my favorite. I do love Cardcaptor Sakura, Chobits, and Suki. When you compare Angelic Layer to the anime version though, the anime was actually better. The manga seemed rather vague and rushed...

In regards to their endings I was a little disappointed in CCS's ending too... the sudden fast forwarding made me feel a little sad. It made me wonder, where is Kero? Does he still live with Sakura? etc etc And just seeing Sakura suddenly older looking was a little saddening too. 

I really liked Wish and I had no idea the angels were all originally male! I guess that explains why they don't really have eyelashes...

As far as the whole "old style, new style" I figured it depended on which member illustrated it, afterall Kobato is a recent series but still has the softer look some of their older works had.

Then again some artists' style can change throughout the years. Even Naoko Takeuchi's Sailormoon drawings now look different during the manga run. Another fine example is Kosuke Fujishima's Ah! My Goddess series. His style certainly changed during the years!

Yeah, I feel like the CCS ending should have been stronger, closure wise
but I think it is safe to assume that Sakura goes on to become the most powerful magician in the world and the master of the Sakura cards and of Yue and Kero

in Tsubasa the CCS Sakura is actually in a couple of pages,  she gives up her star staff so that another Sakura in a diffrent demention can use it to trade with the Time-Space witch, She says that she knows the cards will listen to her without her wand, so she does not need it anymore
that was pretty cool to see

Wow, I'm actually surprised no one mentioned CLAMP Campus Detectives. But then again, considering just how old it is...

I've known CLAMP through Card Captor Sakura like majority, I assume. Back then, it was easily one of my top anime but now, not anymore. Although I still find it entertaining, my tastes have changed. 

My favorite work of CLAMP is simple Tsubasa Reservoir Chronicle. I just loved the mindfuck later in the series. 

I have watch/read other CLAMP series as well, including:


Card Captor Sakura - I watched only the anime & it did not even need 70 episodes but other than that, likeable characters, good humor. 

 X - I can tell it's easily one of their best works & it would have been one of my favorites if it had an ending. What a shame, really.

Magic Knight Rayearth - I found the TV series rather dull, the story could be told easily with less episodes. The manga was better, shorter. But I found the OVA the best part due to the resemblance to X.

xxxHolic - Not my cup of tea, I found it very boring. If someone is unfamiliar with Japanese supernatural is surely lost. I only watch/read it just to connection to TRC. 

Kobato - I disliked that they made Kobato's appearance similar to Sakura's. It was just a 'cute/drama' anime to me, nothing more.

Clover - It would have been interesting if there was more but looks like it is also incomplete.

Blood-C - What a parody.

Gate 7 - Read a few chapters, couldn't take it anymore. Trying to recycle xxxHolic with Japanese history, again if you are unfamiliar you are lost. Even the characters are recycled, it's not even funny. 


Overall, many people complain about CLAMP's style nowadays since it has changed a lot. I have not read/watch everything by them but those are enough to develop a judgment.
