Well being that this title is so short, there isn't really too much to touch up on.
Quite frankly this video is made for Clamp fans, the theme song that plays is titled "action!" It has quite a lovely beat to it, and you will find all of Clamp's recent work here done in sharp well animated scenes. Characters ranging from the more popular titles such as Cardcaptor Sakura, Angelic Layer and Rayearth. To the less well known such as Miyuki-chan in Wonderland, Legal Drug and even the manga only Kobato! Over all the video is fun and entertaining, though I did have one tiny complaint with it. They didn't have the Clamp worlds interact with one another like they did in the first video, instead all you see is the two Mokona's visiting them. Regardless though, if you are a Clamp fan you will love this music video, if your not......then this will probably make you more intersted about their work. So again to recap:
All the Clamp characters rolled into one video, nuff said! Catchy j-pop song. Beautiful artwork! If you loved the original, then you will love this one!
(Mokona's aside) The characters don't crossover into each others worlds like they did in the first. More popular characters get more air time then the less known. Not quite as well planned out compared the original Clamp in Wonderland.read more
Well as it was only 5 minutes long, I'll make this extremely short. It's simply a 5 minute preview of all the famous clamp characters between 1995 to 2006, set to a cheery song by Maaya Sakamoto. Just 5 minutes of happiness to see all your favourite clamp characters do their thing. ^^
in terms of presentation, CLAMP in wonder land 2 is a big improvement over the original. CLAMP in wonderland was a presentation of clamps works from the 1990's, while CLAMP in wonderland 2 is a presentation of their works from 2000 to 2006. so it's going to have a modern animation style instead of the 90's style from it's predecessor. i even kind of like the song a little more than it's prequel. however, it still suffers from the same problem as the first CLAMP in wonderland: it lacks substance. just like the original, it's more of a presentation than an actual story.
i actually like the idea of having multiple stories take place in the same universe. i also like the idea of the characters from these individual stories coming together to tell a story of a larger scope. i actually found an example of how this can be done right: there's an episode of digimon xros wars where the lead characters from each generation of digimon come together to fight a bigger opponent. and there's something really exciting about it. that's because the characters are actually interacting with each other. i'm sure you've asked yourself at least once, 'what would happen if character x met character y?' and that episode of digimon kind of answers that question. with clamp in wonderland 2 however, the characters don't really interact with each other. it's kind of like a fashion show to display all of the characters, there's very little substance to it.
again, if you're a fan of clamp, you'll like this.read more
Well, there are already two reviews that pretty much sum it up and if you've seen the first CLAMP in Wonderland, you know what to expect.
I love the Mokona's journey through all the CLAMP stories. It's funny, nostalgic and dreamy. I especially love the part where Mokona falls in the soup and Kamui pouts. The music is catchy and makes me happy. It all looks great and the ending with the Tsubasa burst is a perfect finish :D
