The Doujinshis consist of:

A group produced Doujinshi of Captain Tsubasa(soccor manga based on a video game)
And a Yaoi Doujinshi of Saint Seiya.

I really like the stuff they did in the 90's, but I lost interest halfway through Chobits, the first volume of Tsubabsa wasn't that interesting and I haven't read Kobato..

I read the two volumes of Man of Many Faces last night and it was around volume two that I picked up on a reference to RG Veda...

i stoppedreading tsubasa after vol 28 or something, it got all confusing and messed up.

Yeah, I just couldn't into a manga that shows tons of other CLAMP characters that I'd rather read about. Sakura is one of my least favorite CLAMP characters, sadly enough.
In the English Dub of the anime they made a big mistake, there is a character from X/1999 who has no gender, so in the Sub that person is called '-sama' but in the Dub they call that person 'Lady'...

Andy | 100 comments Clamp, their art is gorgeous, i've tried to re-create it and just.. wow, so much detail. It's fantastic!

You should be a bit more specific, they have a few people doing art and when you look at the series they've done things tend to either look really Shoujo(Card Captor Sakura) or a more Josei side of Shoujo(X/1999).

Andy | 100 comments Ah, yes. I liked XXXHolic, Tsubasa, Card Captor Sakura and Angelic Layer. So the more shoujo side of their art.

Yeah, since all Clamp does is Shoujo but I like the style they use in XXXHolic, Legal Drug, and X/1999.


message 11: by Andy (new)

Andy | 100 comments Legal Drug looked really cool, I started to read it in a book store but I had to leave before I could finish it... Maybe I should try to buy it...

I read the first volume, I think it is a worthy buy...but if not for all the other stuff I have to buy I probably would get it.


message 13: by Andy (new)

Andy | 100 comments Okay, I shall definitely consider purchasing it then ^^
I have a lot I want to get as well...
