Tokyo Babylon Re-Release Joins the CLAMP Premium Collection

CLAMP Premium Collection Tokyo Babylon

CLAMP will re-release a special publication of Tokyo Babylon as part of its ongoing CLAMP Premium Collection. As with the recently-announced xxxHOLIC tankobon, the upcoming publication will feature new fully illustrated covers. Kadokawa plans to release the tankobon in Summer 2022.

Recently, CLAMP announced that it would be working with Kodansha and Kadokawa to release a series of tankobon of its past titles, the first of which was a two-part publication of xxxHOLIC. The manga features new detailed covers illustrated by CLAMP, and each tankobon costs ¥880 (about $8).

While the next series of publications has not been announced, the company notes that the CLAMP Premium Collection will be a monthly publication. Furthermore, CLAMP notes that once it has gotten approval, it also plans to release a media mix of Tokyo Babylon in the future with the artist taking part in the production.

The Tokyo Babylon 2021 anime was recently canceled due to accusations of plagiarism. The anime adaptation was set to release in April 2021, before production studio GoHands was removed from the project. However, CLAMP is still continuing with plans to create the anime adaptation. It is currently looking for a replacement studio.

The CLAMP Premium Collection Tokyo Babylon publication will release sometime in Summer 2022.
