According to Manga News, the September issue of Kadokawa Shoten's Monthly Newtype magazine is announcing next Wednesday that CLAMP will resume its manga series Gohou Drug in the December issue of Kadokawa's Young Ace magazine on November 4. CLAMP put the manga on hiatus in Japan in 2005 after publishing three volumes from 2001 to 2003 which Tokyopop later released in the US.

You know, I'd seen this in a bookstore and wondered what it was. Now I may look into it...

...but I have around nine other CLAMP works to read first.

Oh, I never saw that coming. I don't know what to say.
I've been waiting so many years for them to finish SOMETHING and they only gave me more manga with crappy endings. This is unexpected. I hope this turns out well and not like Tsubasa, Kobato and xxxHolic..
I don't know why people keep waiting for X. I gave up a long time ago, they don't know how to end the story. Stupid Clamp.

Clamp's known to put some shounen ai and shoujo ai in the mix.

FINALLY. ♥
This is unexpectedly good! Even though they had announced that they'd resume Gohou Drug, once xxxHOLIC and TRC were over, I still hadn't placed my hopes on them to do as they had said whatsover! This is indeed, an amazing surprise!

Still, I just hope Gohou Drug keeps up with its usual epicness and doesn't turn out to have chapters focused on food, and solely food, as opposed to other series of theirs such as Blood-C, xxxHOLIC and Gate 7. Other than that, I have high expectations from this ♥♥.

Just because you don't like them does not mean they are terrible.

Sure, some of their works are quite questionable but they are far from being terrible.
bla bla bla
The endless debate between fans and haters. At one point, after spending a lot of time on MAL, you just realize it's totally pointless.

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

I'm sorry, CLAMP is a total joke now; they used to have a whimsical sense of childishness and charming cheesiness to their works, but now they're just complete jokes, I can't take anything they do seriously.

It's just so surprising that CLAMP even revived one of their hiatus series! I'm assuming DMP will relicense the series if it gets more volumes. But yeah, it's a good thing that they didn't throw away an idea. *now awaiting X to be revived as well, but it's most likely after Gohou Drug.

Indeed, since that was the only respectable thing about Code Geass lol and no, this manga is not yaoi.

After five million years they finally decide to do something about it.

Hope this means they will one day aim to finish X.

Guys, it's not yaoi or shounen ai, it's BL. Shounen-ai is an outdated term that now refers to pedophelia as shounen means young boy.

And even then, what people are missing is that it's being transferred into a seinen magazine. No raging BL in Young Ace.

Fix'd

Anyways, yeah they have good artists but apperantly none of them can do a proper story structure that includes an ending....

I have yet to read a Clamp manga that has had a REAL conclusive ending, everything is so open and can be interpreted a million ways.

Don't get me wrong I LOVED TRC, but the "ending" is......annoying.

LOLWUT???

It's two guys who are GAY for each other.....

I don't care if there are sex scenes or not, that's Yaoi in my book, and it annoys me that clamp is focusing on this shit instead of a serious manga or the REAL conclusion to some of their more important titles.

Terms do not mean what You want them to mean. They mean what people consensually make them mean. Guess what? Most people here in this topic seem to have the same definition. Yaoi = shounen-ai = BL = gay. I'm not saying this in a pejorative way mkay? It's just objectively gay, I don't like it, but some people do, so well, good for them.

Anyway, even without messing with what's the definition of the word, words express meaning, if you can get the meaning, it doesn't matter if the word is slightly incorrect. That's why people say "This anime is shit!" while in reality the anime is not really excrement.

It looks...kind of interesting. Since the only thing from clamp I actually like (really like) is Chobits, I'm thinking I should branch out more with their titles. Though if it's Shounen-Ai I'm not quite sure about reading it (not a big Yaoi fan).

Some people come off as so close-minded instead of supportive. If you don't have anything decent to say, don't say hateful things.

I'm happy for the excited or curious people that get more of something they like, and I don't have to like BL to feel that way.

Sure, no more raging BL, but there still could be more. Even then, what about the first 3 volumes? Eitherway, I don't see how this can appeal to me or any other guy, unless they just want to read every single damn CLAMP manga. Unless this ends shortly, ehhh. Of course it can do well if every damn fujoshi switches to Young ACE and it does well, I don't know then.

Well apparently you need to take over Young Ace and tell them how to do things then. Gohou Drug was never really part of CLAMP's circle jerk, but you'd have to inform yourself to realize this and go against the general flow of the rest who dismiss Gohou Drug in the thread. Japanese seinen magazines can be tolerant of even outwardly gay characters, such as the popular Kinou Nani Tabeta? that runs in Morning KC. Young Ace even had Mirai Nikki Paradox, which starred Akise. Despite (or because of?) his fixation on Yukiteru, he was still a popular character. Yes, even amongst "other guys." I think it will be okay, even if there is "more." It will likely not be raging level, something we can all be thankful for. Subtle is good.

Well perhaps you should take a gander at this, http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=shounen%20ai. It's not just on Urban Dictionary, it's everywhere. I didn't just make this up just to piss people off. There's nothing wrong with correcting somebody at all. You can either take in the new information or leave it mkay?

Are they going to resume it or restart the series with the same caracters? I thought that since the members of CLAMP had changed over the years, the older works were protected by copyright laws and stuff and that's why they couldn't finish it? I didn't read this anywhere, thought, I just assumed that was the reason. I checked this same news in ANN and even though it has the same source, they state it's a remake or something, ummm.

I'll probably check it out anyway. I've been wanting to read it for a long time, but I was forever bitter about starting it and not being able to finish it EVER.
