Between our conscious, waking world and the subconscious state of slumber, there is a thinly veiled plane of lucid dreaming. While the conscious state belongs to individuals, the hidden plane of dreams is one shared by all human minds, past, present, and future. Yet only a few have ever possessed the power to enter this secret realm at will—where a war is being waged to control the waking world. For our earthly wishes and desires are not our own, but under the manipulation of these unseen masters of dreams. The heroine of Gate 7 is Hana, a high-school girl hailing from Kyoto, the daughter of a temple caretaker. Her peaceful ways give her the self-control to act in the hidden realm. But Hana can only reach it through the strange beast that acts as her totem in the world of dreams—and her companion on a journey to confront the puppeteers of our reality!

Alright. I'm sick of the hate this is getting from ex-Clamp fans. If you view my profile, you'll see I've already added it to my favourites after reading just 13 chapters. That's how much I love it.

Art (10)
The first thing that grabbed my attention about this is the incredible artwork. Clamp has truly outdone themselves. It's consistent, beautiful and I have no more to say on this matter, as it is undeniably perfect.

Story (8)
Now, I know the story is a little confusing. But that isn't because of bad writing. It's because of the many references to historical figures in Japan that Westerners are not familiar read more

(having read the first two volumes)

Takamoto Chikahito is probably one of the most relatable protagonists I've seen in the manga/anime world for one reason--when you're confused, so is he. I remember reading chapter one when Sakura, Tachibana and Hana appear and random stuff just starts exploding and thinking to myself "What's going on?!" and turning the page and to find Chikahito saying "What's going on?!" Glad to know we're on the same page....

That said this manga has a habit of throwing a lot of info at you and then going back and explaining itself. However, a lot of that is due to my (and I'd read more

The beauty about Gate 7 is that it came be summarized in just one lovely sentence. It is all art, no plot. Or rather, it is all art, and a plot that makes no sense unless you are a brilliant Japanese history major. With a Masters, Doctorate or PhD in that subject. (I think I'll go for the latter-most).

Oh Clamp, why do you do this to us?

Gate 7 is Clamp's newest and ongoing series in their 20 years of producing manga. It follows Kyoto-enthusiast and high-school goer, Chikahito Takamoto who, on a trip to Kyoto, meets the mysterious and beautiful Hana, and then several read more

The art is gorgeous, almost jaw-dropping as CLAMP once again, flaunts off their skills as a 20-year veteran of manga. Which is where I'm confused. If I'm a historian or fanatic of history class, certainly I could enjoy this. This manga however, as engaging as it promises to be in the beginning first pages, completely speeds away from its friendly welcome, and leaves you in the dust reading paragraph-long dialogue bubbles,struggling to keep your attention, as the fast-paced story forwards months later where the story connects with chapter 1. The characters don't help to pull you in either. Hana is adorable, main character guy is read more

Manga: xxxHOLiC
Same author, supernatural and the main characters of both (Watanuki and Chikahito) are very similar. The comedy is also good.
