Here is your roundup of links for Day 5 of the CLAMP Manga Moveable Feast!
From your host: Yesterday, I used the CLAMP MMF as an excuse to revive one of my favorite older columns, Fanservice Friday, with Fanservice Friday: The Fujoshi Heart of CLAMP. ‘Shippers, come and talk to me!
Friday was sparse in comparison to the rest of the Feast so far, but we did have two bloggers who weighed in.
At Experiments in Manga, Ash Brown took a look at Clover.
“The most striking thing about Clover is its artwork. The style itself is similar to those used in other works by CLAMP, but what makes it stand out from other manga (and not just other CLAMP manga) is the group’s use of innovative and unusual panel layouts and page designs. The individual panels tend to focus closely in on a particular element; these fragments are then gathered together as a whole on the page in interesting and varied ways. CLAMP isn’t afraid of overlap or white space and relatively few panels are used on a page, giving the overall presentation of Clover a minimalist feel. CLAMP’s artwork revels in the small details, moments, and movements without becoming overly complicated.”
And at The Beautiful World, Ayame continues her CLAMP exploration this week with Retrospect on CLAMP: In good and bad times…
That’s all the links for Friday! Stay tuned as the Feast continues!
