Here is your roundup of links for Day 2 of the CLAMP Manga Moveable Feast!
From your host: I take some time to explain Why you should read Cardcaptor Sakura, including lots of pretty images and general sighing.
At The Manga Critic, Kate favors us with her 5 Favorite CLAMP Manga, including titles like X, Clover, and Shirahime-Syo: Snow Goddess Tales.
“Shirahime-Syo: Snow Goddess Tales is testament to CLAMP’s Borg-like ability assimilate any genre or artistic style and make it into their own. The three stories that comprise this slim volume are folkloric in tone and subject-matter, but expressed in a visual language that’s a beautiful synthesis of shojo manga and ukiyo print-making; the characters — with their pointy chins and artfully tousled hair — inhabit stark landscapes reminiscent of the Kishi and Shijo schools.”
Over at Heart of Manga, Laura reminisces about the first CLAMP manga she ever read, in Memorable Manga Moment: Chobits vol. 1.
Yesterday in reviews, Lori Henderson gives the first volume of Gate 7 a try at Manga Xanadu, Ayame spends some time with Tokyo Babylon at The Beautiful World, and Lexie (a girl after my own heart) takes a look at Cardcaptor Sakura at Poisoned Rationality.
That’s all the links for Tuesday! Stay tuned as the Feast continues!

Hey Melinda, I sent you an email a few days ago with links to a bunch of my CLAMP reviews, but they haven’t been added to the archive yet. I’m wondering if maybe it got marked as spam? I remember the same thing happened when I sent Sean an email for his Sailor Moon feast, although I have no idea why.

Oh dear! Zoe, could you forward me that e-mail again, and maybe send it to my gmail address: firstname.lastname@example.org. Let’s give this another try!
