CLAMPcast in Wonderland is a podcast where two pals (Lucy and Robin) journey through the works of manga superstar group CLAMP—the creators behind Card Captor Sakura, X, Tsubasa: Reservoir Chronicle, and so many, many more.
So here’s the plan: we’re going to read—and watch—everything CLAMP has published (that we can get our hands on), and report back to you all. There will be some critique, tons of research, piles of history, and a fair bit of reminiscing.
We’re going to try to tackle things chronologically—meaning we’re reading projects in the order they were released, so if you’ve never read these series, or have been wanting to revisit them, this is a great opportunity to do that!
If you are new to CLAMP, don’t worry! We’ll try not to talk about future projects in anything but vague terms (there will be penalties when we break this rule) and we’ll be careful to avoid spoilers for future projects.
There will be spoilers for that week’s project, though, so make sure you’ve read up before listening—or be prepared to be spoiled!
Come, and join us through CLAMP’s wonderland!
