Here is your roundup of links for Day 4 of the CLAMP Manga Moveable Feast!
From your host: In an MMF edition of 3 Things Thursday, I talk about my 3 Favorite CLAMP Women. Who are your favorites? Come share with us in comments!
In her latest edition of The Best Manga You’re Not Reading, Kate Dacey sings the praises of Suki, CLAMP’s three-volume manga about a childlike teenager’s complicated lessons in love at The Manga Critic.
“The brilliant sociopath, the hooker with the heart of gold, and the naïf are my three least favorite character types, the first two for their tiresome ubiquity in popular culture, and the third for being tiresome: when was the last time you read a story about a sweet, innocent person that didn’t make you feel horribly manipulated or horribly jaded? Imagine my surprise, then, at discovering CLAMP’s delightfully odd series Suki: A Like Story, which revolves around a brilliant but impossibly naive teenager who trusts everyone, reads picture books, and talks to teddy bears. I thought I’d be tearing my breast in agony by the end of the first chapter; instead, I quickly succumbed to Suki‘s charms and even suppressed a sniffle or two in the final pages.”
At Poisoned Rationality, Lexie shares her personal history with CLAMP in CLAMP and me.
Two participants took the opportunity to discuss CLAMP’s X yesterday—Ayame at The Beautiful World and Phillip Anthony here at Manga Bookshelf.
At The Manga Report, Anna shares her review of Legal Drug, and at Heart of Manga, Laura looks at Kobato.
That’s all the links for Thursday! Stay tuned as the Feast continues!
