Shirahimeshou is CLAMP's tribute to traditional Japanese form and storytelling. Featuring luscious watercolors and gentle brushstrokes, it is a beautiful departure from CLAMP's usual fare. Discover for yourself the mystery behind the snow...

Shirahime, the goddess of snow, which is said to be her tears. Shirahime-Syo is a collection of short stories, connected by a motive of snow - tears of the goddess.

Story - 7. Every chapter contains another story, and each of them gives another feeling, so it's a bit hard to rate, but every story is very special. You can also see the inspirations from Japanese legends.

Art - 10. In fact, Shirahime-Syo is for me more of an artbook than actual manga. The art is stunning. All characters are beautifully, studiously drawn, backgrounds as well. There are even few coloured pages, which are also amazing.
