HI! Are you just as big of a fan as I am?? I bet you aren't!! Muwhahahah!

By the way, you can make any topics you want. This group is just starting, so I'm gonna need some help.

Kimberly (loopbug) | 4 comments Yup. Clamp is a group of I think 5 women. :3
Their books are AMAZING though. :3
Like Tsubasa. :D


message 3: by Cali (new)

Cali (calimoritz) Yep, they are usually really sad though. but they're worth it!


message 4: by Cali (new)

Cali (calimoritz) Seriously??? Is that the basis of all of the stories??? That sucks, bot if you think about it it's kinda true.

hello all! i saw the group when i was rating magic knight rayearth 2, and decided i had to join! lol.

Starbubbles | 649 comments Mod
anyway, sorry for getting off topic. my collection of manga seems to be pretty shotgun worthy when it comes to authors. but somehow clamp keeps coming up when i'm picking out a series. so, that was pretty much why i decided to join. i'm a bigger clamp fan than i give myself credit for! haha! but, i'm probably nowhere near as big of a fan as out fearless leader. :)

haha! I love Clamp! I read their manga more than anyone else's. (I still like the others, just not quiet as much in most cases)

Grantaire (americajapan) | 10 comments CLAMP = Awesome!


message 10: by Cali (new)

Cali (calimoritz) I read all kinds of manga, I don't really look for a specific kind, just what I like. But all Clamp titles that I've read have been great!

I used to only read Clamp. I'm branching out though! Be proud of me!


message 12: by Hylian Princess , Hylian-Chan (new)

Hylian Princess  (hylianprincess) | 400 comments Mod
We can branch out together!! *runs to library*

Starbubbles | 649 comments Mod
but shojo encompasses so much! i think they're being ridiculous! lol


message 14: by Starbubbles, event coordinator type person (new)

Starbubbles | 649 comments Mod
of course it does! besides creepy manga is just creepy.


message 15: by Starbubbles, event coordinator type person (new)

Starbubbles | 649 comments Mod
i think the creepiest manga i have is mermaid saga. it's pretty good though. i don't know, it's no walking dead. my boyfriend loves that graphic novel. oh, but zombies are so creepy!
i see afterschool nightmare from time to time at the bookstore. is it something worth looking into?

what's it about

that is different. is it well written? a story like that can flop easily if it's poorly written.


message 18: by Starbubbles, event coordinator type person (new)

Starbubbles | 649 comments Mod
they always seem to be.


message 19: by Hylian Princess , Hylian-Chan (new)

Hylian Princess  (hylianprincess) | 400 comments Mod
well, that is weird....


message 20: by Hylian Princess , Hylian-Chan (new)

Hylian Princess  (hylianprincess) | 400 comments Mod
you're right haha


message 21: by Starbubbles, event coordinator type person (new)

Starbubbles | 649 comments Mod
i always thought it was because one couldn't tell a story but knew how to draw, and the other could tell a story but couldn't draw to save their life. well, it might not have been too bad. sometimes it's better to have two heads instead of one.


message 22: by Starbubbles, event coordinator type person (new)

Starbubbles | 649 comments Mod
true. but then i always wonder about creative differences. what if it doesn't go as one of the pair envisions? do they break up the team? i guess it's not like i'm going to ever find out about it, i mean i only read published works.


message 23: by Hylian Princess , Hylian-Chan (new)

Hylian Princess  (hylianprincess) | 400 comments Mod
I wouldn't want to break into a team because what if I wanted to draw things differently than they were written or if what I wrote was not being drawn they way I liked. You know what I mean?


message 24: by Starbubbles, event coordinator type person (new)

Starbubbles | 649 comments Mod
exactly! you have to be such a creative person to pull off having a good series, and i know that being in a team can be quite beneficial and produce lots of good works. but, if it was your baby and you thought that the team was killing it by going in a different direction... i don't think that i could handle it if it were me.


message 25: by Hylian Princess , Hylian-Chan (new)

Hylian Princess  (hylianprincess) | 400 comments Mod
Well, anything you create seems like "your baby." ha! That reminds me of the time when I wouldn't let my art teacher even touch one of the pictures I had painted. hahah


message 26: by Starbubbles, event coordinator type person (new)

Starbubbles | 649 comments Mod
that totally happens to me when i cook for my family. my mom just pushes me over and starts adding things and changes the complete direction of the meal. so frustrating!


message 27: by Starbubbles, event coordinator type person (new)

Starbubbles | 649 comments Mod
yeah, i guess on both ends that's true.


message 28: by *Sklip* (new)

*Sklip*  (stalkerninja) | 113 comments hi! im new

anyways, i read the first book of tsubasa and i dont think it was taht great

it was kinda boring
i liked all twelve sakura books though! Toya is freakin hot and cute, syaoran is second lol


message 29: by Starbubbles, event coordinator type person (new)

Starbubbles | 649 comments Mod
it is a good series, i totally agree. i only read volume 2 though. you don't see cardcaptor sakura too much anymore. i can see if you were looking at tsubasa to be a continuation of sakura to be disappointing. when tsubasa came out, i really wanted to read it, but a friend said that i should read sakura first since it appears to be cont. from it. it really wasn't the case at all. clamp just reused faces and names, but not much of anything else in the series.


message 30: by *Sklip* (new)

*Sklip*  (stalkerninja) | 113 comments yep, i read the first tsubasa and i kinda skimmed through it

yeah, i was thrilled and excited to see how they did by smooshing all of their characters from their mangas into one, but it was pretty disappointing...

i like sakura's feathers though and the little bunny creature...i think it was called mokona or something...


message 31: by Starbubbles, event coordinator type person (new)

Starbubbles | 649 comments Mod
yeah, mokona orginates from magic knight rayearth. which is also a good series. clamp reuses all of their characters in a good chunk of their series. so it's fun to keep seeing what they reuse and change.

i would suggest xxxholic. i personally like that one better than tsubasa. plus, even though they tie over, you don't need to read tsubasa at all to understand the story.


message 32: by *Sklip* (new)

*Sklip*  (stalkerninja) | 113 comments yah, i wanted to read xxxholic but i HIGHLY doubt any of the libraries nearby have it

waahhh

i wish i could buy whatever books i wanted

i LOVE going to Barnes and nobles

but my mom doesnt like buying books for me, because she doesnt like me to read so much


message 33: by Starbubbles, event coordinator type person (new)

Starbubbles | 649 comments Mod
it might be in the "young adult" section. but i doubt it too. newer series are a little slower getting to libraries since they typically don't have big budgets, and people probably don't donate them as often. you can always check out hastings or half price books. those are awesome deals! your mom might be concernded that mangas are expensive and they are after all comics.


message 34: by *Sklip* (new)

*Sklip*  (stalkerninja) | 113 comments well, on ebay, they sold the second set of sakura the cardcaptor for under twelve dollars

yep six sakura books under twelve dollars

i wanted to get it, but my mom doesnt like me reading manga

yeah, she would rather have me clean the house lol


message 35: by Starbubbles, event coordinator type person (new)

Starbubbles | 649 comments Mod
i must totally try to figure out that ebay deal! lol! i'm just not that trusting. i think i'm going to get ripped off or something when i order online. atleast when i'm in a store, i can feel and know what it is i'm buying.


message 36: by *Sklip* (new)

*Sklip*  (stalkerninja) | 113 comments yeah, thats why you should sign up for paypal too

its this thing where you can pay with your credit card or bank account without the other person seeing your info


message 37: by Starbubbles, event coordinator type person (new)

Starbubbles | 649 comments Mod
true. but paypal can't always protect you against fraud. i'm just not that trusting i guess.


message 38: by *Sklip* (new)

*Sklip*  (stalkerninja) | 113 comments lol, its good to be cautious

i dont like buying stuff off the internet either unless its something like walmart.com or barnes and nobles

but yeah, i feel scared to click Buy Now buttons on the internet


message 39: by Starbubbles, event coordinator type person (new)

Starbubbles | 649 comments Mod
yeah, i guess it's just that uncertain feeling that you can't escape from


message 40: by *Sklip* (new)

*Sklip*  (stalkerninja) | 113 comments ..............lol


message 41: by *Sklip* (new)

*Sklip*  (stalkerninja) | 113 comments yah

Hylian Princess  (hylianprincess) | 400 comments Mod
is there any way to add group quotes?


message 43: by *Sklip* (new)

*Sklip*  (stalkerninja) | 113 comments say what?


message 44: by Starbubbles, event coordinator type person (new)

Starbubbles | 649 comments Mod
like neat quotes from people and add it to the group? i think you can, but i wouldn't know how to pull it off.


message 45: by Hylian Princess , Hylian-Chan (new)

Hylian Princess  (hylianprincess) | 400 comments Mod
hhmmm. I'll try to figure it out. I want some Clamp quotes here.
