oh!!! so you've read soryuden and lawful drug!! how are they??

i've always thought that the four brothers in soryuden look really cute but how's the story?

and lawful drug is shonen ai maybe??

07-04-2003, 09:57 PM
Well, bordering on shonen ai is more like it..

Soryuden is REALLY beautiful
The characters are beautiful,the story is beautiful..the whole concept is just .. beautiful xD

Mix a few hot guys,give em entangled destinies,some sugar n spice and pretty armor BOOM! Soryuden xD

Lawful drug is a really nice Manga,really modern for CLAMP ^^

07-04-2003, 10:31 PM
awesome thanks for the info!!

i remember looking at some art from Soryuden and i was just like @_@ wow... *wipes drool from mouth*

and lawful drug caught my eye with the interesting character designs.

i hope that someday someone licences them. maybe Tokyopop since they have all of Clamp's other works for the most part. but i would like to see someone like Dark Horse take a Clamp work since they do such a quality job in publishing

07-04-2003, 11:06 PM
love - X, Angelic Layer, Tokyo Babylon

Love = Chobits, X
Like = Angelic Layer,Clover

07-06-2003, 11:46 AM
obsession= clover

07-06-2003, 12:54 PM
Love (in order)

Card Captor Sakura
Angelic Layer

Didn't care for:

Need to see subbed (I didn't like the dub)

07-06-2003, 09:41 PM
love clover
really like chobits, tho I've only seen the anime form...
As for other titles, the only other CLAMP title I have devoted any other time/money to is X...so far I've purchased 3 X DVDs and ...ergh, well...I nearly fall alseep every time I try to watch it. The same things are repeated over and over again and there's only 3 episodes to a disc (I try to not buy bootlegs, mind you). I have little interest in continuing to collect the series, but like...I've already got 3 volumes! I figure I should just sell my DVDs and buy the manga or something. :/ Maybe it's more interesting there...

Oh, and I forget which website I got this from, but I guess there was a Clover animated short before some movie in Japan (like Matrix trailer before Dreamcatcher) and this midi I have is supposed to be the first song Oruha is singing in it. Or actually I could be totally wrong - either way, the midi is supposed to be Oruha's song and I'll gladly send it to anyone who wants it. ^_^

07-06-2003, 09:55 PM
Love- X/1999

Like- Card Capture Sakura, Chobits

Don't like- Clover, it was ok but I don't really care for it, I just couldn't get into the manga it was boring.

07-09-2003, 02:22 PM
Favorite: Tokyo Babylon (*o*)

Love: Card Captor Sakura, X

Like: Gohou Drug, Suki. Dakara Suki, Wish, Clover

Tolerate: Chobits, Magic Knight Rayearth

Haven't read: Everything else (Well, I saw a little of the CLAMP campus anime, and I liked it ^_^)

I looooooooved Tokyo Babylon so much.. XD Before reading it I didn't even like X too much (since it starts out pretty slow ^_^)

But yeah, CLAMP rocks my socks XD

07-10-2003, 09:59 PM
Wow, I'm surprised not very many people liked Wish. Hm...

Like: Wish, X

Ok/Tolerant: Chobits, Magic Knight RayEarth

Haven't read too many of CLAMPS work, they just came out with a new one called Shin Shunkaden, which there's only one volume out and it's really hard to get a hold of! But it looks good.

07-11-2003, 09:49 AM
Oooo, CLAMP. Let's see...

I love Chobits and X! (I just had to cosplay as Chii~!)
I liked Magic Knight Rayearth, and even enough to buy the anime (I HATE Eagle's Japanese VA, it does not suit him at all!!!! And Asuka's voice was very annoying.)
Miyuki-chan was interesting, but the storyline was like "Eehh...okay." Love the artwork, though.
I still don't get (understand) Gohou Drug and wonder what's wrong with the main chara. *Laughs*
I have yet to read Wish, Clover, and C.C. Sakura. (The art alone is enough to make me buy the tanboukan...whenever I have the money.)

That sounds like a description for CLAMP in general. :p Well, not ALL their stuff, but..

As for me~ I haven't read/seen as much CLAMP stuff as most of you seem to have, but here goes.

Love: Magic Knight Rayearth
Really Like (almost love!): X (the manga and the movie.. haven't seen the TV series, heh), CLAMP Gakuen Tanteidan [Campus Detectives]
Like/Enjoyed: Cardcaptor Sakura, Chobits (maybe enough to be in "really like"), Miyuki-chan in Wonderland (absolutely adored the "Miyuki-chan in X" segment of the manga, though!)

I've also read/seen some of Angelic Layer and RG Veda, but not enough to really interest me... or to make a good opinion on either. I want to read Clover and Wish!

Mm, I should get back into all the CLAMP stuff I used to be into. I even wrote Gakuen Tanteidan fanfiction! Yay obscurity! XD

07-16-2003, 10:13 AM
Love - Magic Knight Rayearth, Cardcaptor Sakura, what I've seen of Clover
Like - X/1999 (sometimes it's a bit too angsty for my tastes), what I've seen of Angelic Layer is okay, same story with Wish
Dislike - Chobits

Although I really haven't read many titles. ^^;; *cough*

07-16-2003, 12:33 PM
LOVE= X, Clover, Tokyo Babylon
LIKE= Chobits, Rayearth, Campus Detectives, Cardcaptor Sakura
EHH= Wish (couldn't handle the art)

Anyone know where one could get a copy of Soryuden? Sounds quite lovely.

07-17-2003, 06:55 AM
Well, I've really liked Chobits...I've read Vol 1-6 so far and am gonna get 7 and 8 when they come out here. Don't have 1-6 anymore, since they were gifts to someone, but I might end up owning just 7 and 8. Dunno if I'll be giving them to the person now...I just have to see how it ends, though. :D

07-17-2003, 04:07 PM
I love all of what I've read so far. ^_^ Except X was gory >_x and Clover was confusing...

07-18-2003, 09:14 AM
love: CCS, RG Veda, X/1999, Tokyo Babylon
like: Angelic Layer
tolerate: MKR
Dislike: Chobits

Haven't read any others

07-19-2003, 04:24 PM
Love = Magic Knight Rayearth, Cardcaptor Sakura, Chobits, Angelic Layer, Wish

Like = Clover, CLAMP School Detectives

Haven't Read = RG Veda, Miyuki-chan in Wonderland, Shirahime Shou, Tokyo Babylon, X

I'm a very piccy reader but nonetheless a big fan of CLAMP, which I find oddly ironic. There's none of their works that I've read/watched and have disliked. Possibly with the exception of Clover or CLAMP School Detectives. I didn't not like Clover, I merely had a lot of trouble understanding it. Possibly it will get better because I only have the first manga. Though CLAMP School Detectives isn't bad, it's just not the kind of manga I find myself typically drawn to.

Sailor Naboo- Aw, the DVDs have both the Japanese and English versions on them. Though as far as dubs go, MKR is probably the best I've seen... though it starts to slack quite a bit when you get to the second season

08-08-2003, 11:03 PM

Love: X, Card Captor Sakura, Tokyo Babylon, Magic Knight Rayearth, Chobits, Miyuki-chan in Wonderland

Tolerate: Wish, Angelic Layer

Don't Really Care For: Campus Dectectives

I'm going to say, RG Veda is my all time fav... and that's all I have to say about that

08-12-2003, 04:51 PM
Felt like reading: X, Rayearth, Chobits, CCS, Tokyo Babylon.

Haven't felt like reading: All else

08-17-2003, 02:10 AM

08-19-2003, 11:37 PM
I like: Card Captor Sakura, Wish, Angelic Layer, X/1999, and Chobits

08-19-2003, 11:52 PM
LOVE: Tokyo Babylon
EH: Clover

Those are the only two I've finished... the other stuff I've read a bit here and there, not enough to really make a rating on :(

08-20-2003, 12:11 AM
X is the bestest ever! Then Tokyo Babylon. I think those two should go hand in hand. Tokyo Babylon would prob. be mi fave if it matched X in artwork. I don't dislike any CLAMP manga, the worst I get is merely like. And that would be Chobits, and Magic Knight Rayearth.

12-10-2003, 09:17 AM
Card captor sakura
angelic layer
magic knight raerth
man of many faces

Loved all!! mostly Chobits.

12-10-2003, 02:53 PM
I only used to love MKR and angelic layer, now they annoy me :/ CCS is the only CLAMP work I love still...so thats at the top (with Tsubasa RC) and Chobits at the bottom ..with man of many faces, that sucked.
I like what I've read of XXholid though...but I haven't read that much.

*isnt much of a CLAMP fan* >_>;

12-10-2003, 04:03 PM
I haven't read or seen that much CLAMP, but here goes:

Chobits manga (love the new style artwork)
Cardcaptor Sakura anime (so kawaii!!)

Chobits anime
Magic Knight Rayearth manga (didn't much like the ending of the first arc)

CCS manga (I like looking at the artbooks, but the manga never 'grabbed' me)
MKR anime (not to impressed with the first disc)

Miyuki-chan in Wonderland anime (gag gift from a friend last year, somewhat interesting, but mostly frightening...)

12-10-2003, 04:10 PM
My favorites are X/1999 and Chobits

I really like Tokyo Babylon too even though I have yet to read the manga, but I did enjoy the anime alot.
Chobits anime is alright I guess.
X is a really good anime, one of my favs.

I also like CCS in manga version, the anime is good as well.

I really want to read Rayearth and I read some of Miyuki-chan in Wonderland, it's alright Miyuki though is kind of annoying.

Darkside Blues
12-10-2003, 06:56 PM
Love: X

Like: Clamp School Detectives, Wish, Tokyo Babylon, Card Captor Sakura (prefer the anime, really)

Don't Like: Rayearth

All the other series I'm indifferent to. Nice artwork (especially in Clover) but that's about it. :-/

12-10-2003, 08:04 PM
Love: X (Manga and anime versions are gorgeous *.*)

Like: Wish, Magic Knight Rayearth (Mokona!!), Miyuki-chan was definitely interesting XD it was actually funny in some parts (I read the manga, and loved the reference to X).

Clover, I have yet to read, which my friend said she really liked.
Chobits was weird ^_^ I read one volume of it, if it were around I'd read it, but I wouldn't go looking for it.
Man of Many Faces: I read the first few pages of this; no more, thanks ^^;
I read and watched a little bit of CCS, and I don't care too much for it.

12-10-2003, 08:46 PM
Love: CCS, Chobits, Angelic Layer

12-24-2003, 08:25 PM
Enjoy: Card Captor Sakura (Anime)
Like: Magic Knight Rayearth

I haven't seen any other CLAMP works, so I cannot pass judgment on them.

oooh, you read xxxHolic? I've seen some of the art and I really want to have it too, but I haven't read anything of it yet. Is it good?

You won't have to wait too long...

It appears that Tokyopop no longer has an exclusive lock on CLAMP works. In fact, Tokypop and Viz will now face competition from the large publishing firm Random House.

Their subsidiary, Del Rey (Del Rey publishes quite a number of Sci-Fi and Fantasy novels), is planning on publishing 4 manga translations, TWO of which are CLAMP works. Manga #1 for both series are set for release in May 2004.

Tsubasa: Resorvoir Chronicles

The other two manga are Gundam Seed and Negima! Magister Negi Magi

It looks like many of your favorite manga and anime are getting published in the U.S. quite quickly.

12-25-2003, 05:46 AM
I never heard of Random House or Del Rey :s so I guess I'll just have to tell my retailer about it, so he can order away for me ^_^ (it's so good to come to that store so often, they even know my name and if I need anything they'll order without questioning :D)

Once the ISBN for those mangas become available, your local store should have no problem trying to order them. (ISBN uniquely identifies a book)
