Website Twitter Instagram CLAMP is an allfemale Japanese manga artist group that formed in the mid1980s. It consists of leader Nanase Ohkawa and three artists who shift roles for each series: Mokona Tsubaki Nekoi and Satsuki Igarashi . Almost 100 million CLAMP tankbon copies have been sold worldwide as of October 2007. In general Ohkawa gets her inspiration for the group from everyday events such as dreams or the news. Unlike most manga artists who specialize in a single genre CLAMP has created a diverse body of work. CLAMPs genres vary widely from childish and comedic Cardcaptor Sakura Clamp School Detectives to more dramatic and teenrated xxxHolic X series. Furthermore drawing from the idea of Osamu Tezukas Star System as they did in Tsubasa: Reservoir Chronicle CLAMP often crossover characters from their own series into their other works which gives rise to a loosely defined Clamp Universe.
