posted on by Kim Morrissy
The hashtag #あなたのCLAMPはどこから ("Which CLAMP series did you start with") has been trending on Twitter since its creation on Thursday. It has even come to the attention of various voice actors who have worked on CLAMP anime adaptations, who have been reflecting on their early memories.
Voice actress Megumi Ogata, who was herself cast in multiple CLAMP anime adaptations, tweeted: "Magic Knight Rayearth was the first CLAMP anime I voiced for, and since then I've gotten so much out of Cardcaptor Sakura, X, and various other things. Of course, that was in the 90s, but even today, I have acting opportunities in anime and games. I'm grateful all over again. Thank you, CLAMP and all the fans of their work...!"
Ogata voiced Princess Emeraude in Magic Knight Rayearth, Yukito Tsukishiro in Cardcaptor Sakura, Hikaru Kisaragi in CLAMP School Detectives, and To Li in Miyuki-chan in Wonderland.
Makoto Kumai tweeted: "Li Syaoran from Cardcaptor Sakura and Sumomo from Chobits are adorable. At the time, I got many letters asking, 'Is that really you?' (I like morning exercises.) I also voiced Nataku in X... all of these encounters are treasures to me."
Daisuke Namikawa, who voiced Fai in Tsubasa: RESERVoir CHRoNiCLE, tweeted: "Fai D. Flowright is a beloved character to me. I have nothing but gratitude in my heart for CLAMP. Thank you so much."
Sayaka Ohara tweeted: "Voicing Yūko from xxxHOLiC was the pride of my life."
Mika Kikuchi, who voiced Mokona from Tsubasa: RESERVoir CHRoNiCLE and xxxHOLiC, tweeted: "It started with Mokona. If I didn't meet Mokona, I wouldn't be here. But, still, it wasn't coincidence, it was hitsuzen (inevitability). I love [Mokona]. Thank you so much." (In xxxHOLIC and Tsubasa: RESERVoir CHRoNiCLE, one of Yūko's catchphrases is "There is not such thing as coincidence in this world. The only thing is hitsuzen.")
