Surprise, surprise… MTV has gone from music television to reality television and now is going to try and capture ‘geeks’ with their new MTV Geek subsite. To be honest, I did read some stuff about your world and about this television and they didn’t make it worthy of my attention by now. What made me click a link to its website was the news that CLAMP’s Gate 7 English version of Chapter 1 has been published on this very same web page.
Here is the description given by the release:
“An innocent sightseeing trip to Kyoto opens up a magical realm to shy high schooler Chikahito Takamoto! Visiting a legendary shrine, Chikahito finds himself in the mystical world of Hana and her comrades–and his immunity to their powers leads them to believe that he’s no ordinary, awkward teenager! Protecting our world from violent elemental beasts, Hana and her team welcomes the confused Chikahito–who isn’t quite sure that he wants to be caught in the middle of their war! One’s thing’s certain, though, since he’s smitten with aloof, childlike warrior Hana, he’s along for the ride, for better or worse!”
The graphics: Really great.
The translation: Native and well-fonted
The fact that it’s CLAMP and Free: Priceless.
