Gate 7 (Chapters 0–1)

Myouhou modor­i­dori~! 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 […]

Despite my being gid­dy over the ani­me adap­ta­tion com­ing out when it was first revealed months ago, I nev­er actu­al­ly got around to watch­ing it because I for­got about it being made (T_T). I was­n’t pay­ing atten­tion to CLAMP in gen­er­al towards the end of 2009 and the begin­ning of 2010, […]
