I am very disappointed- I was waiting for this for the longest time, since I first received a pamphlet about it at New York Anime Festival 09.
I was going to be quick on the trigger with it, like with my full collection of Tokyopop's CLAMP no Kiseki books...

Maybe some day.

I almost had a heart attack. I thought this post was saying that Del Rey was canceling their CLAMP titles. I will cry if I don't get to complete my XXXHolic manga collection.

Wish we could get whatever data the author did collect. Not sure how legal that would be, but whatever...

Something tells me if they did cancel that would hurt them in the long run, rather than helping instead. But then again, Del Ray did cancel this book, so I guess anything is possible these days.

It's been years since I bought anything from Del Ray. Truthfully, Genshken was my favorite series they ever licensed, but that was several years ago.

By the way, wasn't Del Ray bought out by the US branch of Kodansha or something around those lines? I remember hearing about something like that last year.

considering XXXHolic is a Kodansha title and they now have a US branch there's probably no need to worry about XXXHolic getting a full US release.

If he can find it. I remember the Wiki-bureaucrats figured that "Clamp (artists)" was much more better than "CLAMP." God, what a cluster****.

Yeah, that was a shining example of what is wrong with Wikipedia.

It's been too long; time has already passed. Meanwhile, CLAMP mania is not as it used to be. And economy stinks. They missed their window of opportunity.

That's a shame. I was looking forward to reading this. Hopefully Kodansha or someone will resolicite it. There is always print on demand or self publishing too.
