CLAMP Responds to Fan Appreciation Book

Nearly a year ago today, I posted about an online CLAMP fan-community’s project in celebration of CLAMP’s 20th year anniversary. The project was titled the CLAMP Appreciation Fanbook and over the past twelves months fans from around the world offered their art, stories, time and donations to create the 348 page hardcover-bound book.

Yesterday, the clamp_now community shared a response from CLAMP that one of the team’s four members, Tsubaki Nekoi, posted on the manga-team’s community boards over at their website, CLAMP-Net:

Best of all is the large number of countries that participated! We really are happy to hear that our works are read, and furthermore liked, in so many different places.

I don’t know whether words of thanks will reach you, everyone, but thank you very much indeed. I think new works will be born after this as well. We’ll do our best so that you read them too!

You can read CLAMP’s full translated response on the clamp_now posting. As for the book itself, print-on-demand copies can now be purchased from A short preview of the book can be seen there as well and images of the completed product have also been posted on the clamp_now community.

A congratulations to everyone involved in this project. The final product looks gorgeous! It’s great to know that CLAMP now holds the product of your hard work in their hands and it’s a wonderful gift.
