Current lullaby :: Reverse, Saiga Mitsuki

Pfiou, last weeks in prep school... and weather is totally unpredictable!

Okay, so as the internet site of Japan Expo doesn't seem to provide an English version of the organisation of signing cession, I htought I could always do a quick translation. If there are any mistakes, please feel free to point them out to me! Thanks!

Signing sessions system

Usually during Japan Expo festivals, two signing sessions systems are offered to the con-goers to allow everyone to have a chance to leave with the autograph of one of our guests!

First come, first served

Traditionally, every morning, the “first-come, first-served” signing sessions system is the simplest : the guest will be in a Salle de Dédicaces (Signing Room) and, at the opening of the convention, the visitors will come freely to meet them or have to go to the Point Info (Information Desk) to take an autograph ticket.

This system favors people coming early in the morning, to be sure to meet the guest: first to come are therefore first to be served!


Traditionally, every afternoon, the lottery system is open to all con-goers, and the participation is possible throughout the day.

· You go to the Point Info (Information Desk)

· You show your entrance ticket

· A mark corresponding to the signing cession is left on your ticket

· You are invited to put your hand in the box corresponding to the guest you want an autograph of, from which you draw a piece of paper

· In the box there are papers where are written “losers” or “winners”. You immediately know if you have won or lost.

· For each guest : one participation a day per person.

The original post is there. I hope it's now clearer for everybody!!


 To celebrate CLAMP's anniversary, several French publishers are doing new editions of some "classics", often in omnibus versions (two volumes in one).

So we now have Card Captor Sakura and Clover by Pika

but also X/99 by Tonkam,

who provided this flyer to provide further information on their next moves, that include a new edition of RG Veda.

There are also new editions of Tokyo Babylon and RG Veda OAVs.

Thank you so much for the translation. ^^ My French is all kinds of horrible, so that really helped me. <3

Hello, thank you so much for the information

I'm actually in France now. I've read the pages u scanned, and I would like to aks if you know how to buy the exclusive Clamp Agenda of 2009 ? I've asked some manga shops and they told me that the agenda would be released quite late.

Do you have more information about it ?

On Tonkam internet site, they say the agenda will be available the first week of June.
Hum, I'll try asking tomorrow to the owner of the manga shop I usually go to. ^^

Je t'en prie!

Le truc, c'est qu'ils n'ont pas encore annoncé les rééditions de Wish et LD... je crois qu'ils essayaient simplement de promouvoir l'ensemble de leurs séries (en contre-attaque à Pika).
Et pourtant, que ne donnerai-je pas pour pouvoir enfin compléter mes séries... Ce n'est qu'en écumant les rayons poussiéreux et les étagères de revente qu'on peut désormais mettre la main sur ce genre de volume... cela aurait été plus utile que de refaire X...
