Since its debut manga RG Veda, CLAMP has steadily asserted itself as one of the most widely renowned teams of manga artists, leaving a durable imprint in every established genre while also devising some novel formulas along the way. Endowed not only with stylistic distinctiveness but also the caliber of a comprehensive cultural structure, CLAMP's output is distinguished by unique worldbuilding flair and visual vitality. Exploring a selection of CLAMP manga as well as anime it inspired, this volume examines CLAMP's broader philosophical underpinnings, its dedication to the invention of elaborate narrative constructs, its legendary passion for multilayered universes, and its symbolic interpretation of human identity as an unstable outcome of the intersection of science, fantasy and politics. Throughout, this work highlights the team's incremental creation of a graphic constellation of unparalleled appeal.
