Check it! CLAMP in Wonderland

29 05 2009

JG CLAMPIt would be difficult to be a fan of anime and/or manga without, at some point in your otaku career, coming across the name CLAMP. A group of four women mangaka, CLAMP has produced such works as Magic Knight Rayearth, Card-Captor Sakura, XXXHolic and contributed character designs for many other works, such as the recent Code Geass.

In something of a celebratory fashion, CLAMP put together a series of short films containing many characters from the CLAMP canon, mixed with anime-theme-esque music. In essence, they created their own AMV — though unlike the otaku created works, CLAMP was able to provide its own footage.

The results are CLAMP in Wonderland 1 and 2. The first covers many of their characters from 1987 to 1994 with the second containing over 100 of their characters. 

The results are fun, if not a little pointless. Those schooled in the CLAMP universe will know what to expect here, and probably enjoy seeing their beloved characters together in one animation. For anime fans in general, the videos give a general impression of CLAMP’s overall style and talent. Either way, they’re worth checking out (though perhaps not worth shelling out the dough for the DVDs, except for the most rapid fans).
