The cover to the upcoming 80-page Mangettes: Gate 7 book release by the popular manga quartet CLAMP (Tsubasa, Chobits, X, Magic Knight Rayearth) has appeared in the listings of the Amazon Japan retail website. This book is listed as Dark Horse Comics' English version, which has a projected release date of August 15, 2010. This is the same release that was listed (without the cover image) in Amazon's Canadian site late last year, but was subsequently removed. That deleted Amazon Canada listing gave the following story description:
Between our conscious, waking world and the subconscious state of slumber, there is a thinly veiled plane of lucid dreaming. While the conscious state belongs to individuals, the hidden plane of dreams is one shared by all human minds, past, present, and future. Yet only a few have ever possessed the power to enter this secret realm at will - where a war is being waged to control the waking world. For our earthly wishes and desires are not our own, but under the manipulation of these unseen masters of dreams. The heroine of Gate 7 is Hana, a high-school girl hailing from Kyoto, the daughter of a temple caretaker. Her peaceful ways give her the self-control to act in the hidden realm. But Hana can only reach it through the strange beast that acts as her totem in the world of dreams - and her companion on a journey to confront the puppeteers of our reality!
Dark Horse is publishing monthly 80-page books, or "mangettes," of CLAMP's newest work this year. The project will be published nearly simultaneously in North America, South Korea, and Japan.
