Originally a larger doujinshi circle in the 1980s, CLAMP now consists of 4 close-knit friends since 1993. These ladies have enchanted readers with whimsical lands, spellbinding art, and unforgettable characters for years. Starting with their action drama “RG Veda,” they’ve gone on to create many beloved series like “Cardcaptor Sakura,” and “X/1999”. The overlap and reuse of characters across several of their works sparked a loose “CLAMP universe,” and their stories are everything from lighthearted to bloody, sometimes within the same series. Unifying, enthralling, with ornate and magical art, CLAMP is unarguably a beloved name in manga.
