Wow, good for them. Just in case the article ever does require registration, anyone wanna copy/paste what was in the article onto here?

I'm working on scanning the article right now. We get the Times for free in our dorms, so I have my own copy...it's a little too long for my scanner, so I'll resize it and then post the image.

It requires registration now, I just chose a link that will bypass the registration for most people.

Solomon made a minor (nitpick) mistake about Funimation (located in Fort Worth, not Houston).

I was actually amazed that the writer of the article knew there were 52-episodes for the anime Tsubasa.

Still, I'm glad to see CLAMP get a higher profile in such a large publication.

Charles has been writing on anime/manga for the LA Times for *years*, so I'm not surprised at all. I don't know if he's actually a fan himself, or simply maintains a professional interest, but really, it doesn't matter, either. But definitely good to see him in something as major as the NYT: the article may not be front-page, but still! And nothing like the *awesomeness* value of seeing that image on a Times page; I had to run out and buy a copy for myself and another for my girlfriend, who is even more of a CLAMP fan than I am ^^

He also does many of the series write-ups for Amazon, but frankly I find him to be overly critical most of the time. He comes across like he expects anime to be Citizen Kane and is shocked when it isn't.

52? I thought Tsubasa is planning for 78 episodes unless he's referring to the number that's already been done.

Interesting read. I've seen videos where they've shown how they work and stuff like that also. When something hits big though, it really puts you into an advantagious situation obviously.

CLAMP sounds a tad condescending to me. Especially after their primadonna crap they pulled at AX. Like Metallica, they seem to have forgotten their roots. Why should I like them again?

I don't know how many have been planned, but 52 have been released in Japan to date (that I'm aware of). BUT, if the series is popular, than a 3rd season wouldn't surprise me (but I had difficulty getting through the first season and haven't watched the 2nd).

I am pretty sure there is a third season planned in 2007 so he must mean the episodes so far.

I don't think they want fans to like them. Just like their work.

Nice timing, ANN! I'm going to use this in my paper on anime...w00t. Wink

It's a nice article though...CLAMP is and always will be rad.

It's good that CLAMP is getting publicity. They deserve all this publicity actually. Hopefully we'll see more articles featuring CLAMP. Thanks for sharing!
