Weary due to the complete mess of an ending TRC had (and still weary to finish up ×××HOLiC because of it), I finally got around to reading CLAMP’s latest series, Gate 7! I mean, Kobato was still very good, in my opinion, so I haven’t lost hope in CLAMP.
As always, CLAMP manages to intrigue me from the very first chapters. The artwork is very pretty and the personality quirks of the characters are highly amusing. Especially Hana’s love for noodles, rivaling Yuko’s penchant for alcohol and Kero-chan’s obsession with food in general. xD
Gate 7 seems to be the most Japanese-inspired out of all of CLAMP’s works. Enthusiasts of Japanese culture will relate to Chikahito’s fondness of Japanese relics and Kyoto. I guess if you’re not savvy with Japanese culture, you might be left a little confused with the constant Japan-oriented terms they use.
I’ll wait until I finish the first volume before I decide to buy a copy from Dark Horse (bless their awesome souls).
