Great podcast

I love Clamp! After all, Cardcaptor Sakura, Magic Knight Rayearth, xxxHolic and Tsubasa: Reservoir Chronicle practically dominated my teenage years. Since discovering this podcast early last year, I’ve gotten into other series by Clamp that I didn’t get a chance to read or watch when I was a kid and it’s been fun! Thank you Lucy and Robin for being awesome guides through Clamp’s wonderland.

A must-listen for CLAMP fans

This show is the deep-dive literary analysis for CLAMP’s various series that I have always wanted.

I love how Robin and Lucy give each and every series a dedicated space in the limelight—going step-by-step through CLAMP’s ouvre, giving the background and cultural context for every series as it was released, looking at visual storytelling, analyzing themes and character development, discussing representation, and more.

I also love how they do their best to not “stargaze” too much (i.e. no spoilers for series they haven’t gotten to yet), yet they do look backwards to see how overarching themes, character archetypes, and art styles have developed and shifted over the course of CLAMP’s 30-year career.

14/10 would recommend for any CLAMP fan.

Wonderful and In-Depth

Lovely to hear such a strikingly intellectual deep dive into this body of work. The commentary is so rich and the analysis is absolutely fantastic. I was looking for an adult perspective on stories I loved as a teen and still see a lot of merit in as a grown-up. So glad I found this!
