The CLAMP edition of the Manga Moveable Feast is well on its way! I kicked things off yesterday morning with my Introduction & CLAMP Directory, including an overview of all CLAMP’s works published in English.
The blogosphere was a-buzz with CLAMP yesterday, and I’m quite pleased to note that many of the entries I received came from writers outside the usual crowd. Keep ’em coming, fandom!
Over at the Organization Anti-Social Geniuses, Justin was so eager to start, he began a day early, expressing his (so far) disappointment with CLAMP’s work and asking for suggestions in Sunday Spotlight: Where Should One Start With CLAMP?
Jade at Jade’s Escape laments the difficulty of finding CLAMP fans in Okinawa, in CLAMP: The Known-Unknown Manga-ka.
“You know, CLAMP,” I said excitedly before repeating the name with Japanese pronunciation: “Ku-la-n-pu”. My Japanese co-worker scrunched up his face in the same way my students looked at me whenever I spoke English.
At Experiments in Manga, Ash Brown offers up a CLAMP-focused My Week in Manga: July 16-July 22, 2012.
Aaron speaks his mind at Manga Energy, sharing his personal view on one of CLAMP’s recurring themes, in Love Is Not All You Need: A Refutation of Clamp’s underlying philosphy of “love”.
At The Manga Otaku, Tiffany mulls over a few thoughts on Chobits.
And back home at Manga Bookshelf, Michelle, Sean, and I make CLAMP the subject of our latest Pick of the Week.
That’s the roundup for Day 1! More to come! All entries are linked from the CLAMP MMF archive.
