Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The debonair Akira Ijyuin reappears in this shoujo romantic comedy that follows the master thief and the girl who loves him from grade school into adulthood. The story begins with Akira as a CLAMP School third grader who lives with his two mothers and is ordered to steal bizarre items at their whim. When he's forced to hide from the police one night, he takes refuge in the room of a young girl, who falls in love with him in spite of their four-year age difference.

Synopsis:

Akira ljyuln lives a double life as a top student at Clamp School and as the infamous thief 20 Faces. He steals at the whim of his two crime lord mothers until his life is changed forever by a chance meeting with the lovely Utako. Featuring cameos by other Clamp School characters, Man of Many Faces is a romance that spans years, as childhood crush turns to true love. An absolute must that no Clamp fan can do without.

About the Author

What is CLAMP?

CLAMP is the four-woman manga studio that creates the world's most popular manga. For the past 15 years they have worked non-stop, creating everything from the adorable shojo (girls comic) hit Cardcaptor Sakura, to the dark and brooding Tokyo Babylon, to the sci-fi romantic comedy Chobits. Currently they are working on four series: Legal Drug, X, Tsubasa: Resevoir Chronicle and xxxHolic. The group also has a close relationship with anime studio Madhouse, which has adapted most of CLAMP's manga into equally successful anime.

2004 marks the team's 15th anniversary, and to celebrate they are working on a retrospective collection called CLAMP no Kiseki, available from TOKYOPOP in 2005.

Series Description

This very early CLAMP delight was originally serialized as 20 Mensou ni Onegai! in Newtype magazine in 1990; it was first published in tankoubon (graphic novel) form in June, 1990, by Kadokawa. It is one of 3 CLAMP Gakuen-related manga series recently acquired by TOKYOPOP®.

Akira - who later appears in the CLAMP School Detectives manga series - is a dapper, debonair young thief-for-hire who becomes the object of 5-year-old Utako's affections.

This title, along with Duklyon: CLAMP School Defenders and CLAMP School Detectives, takes place in the CLAMP School universe - some details about that world:

A self contained district within Tokyo. It is shaped like a pentagram with each of the five corners housing a different level of education from kindergarten through college. It was founded by the Imonoyama family, who people say have more money than the Japanese government. The school was built to provide the best education possible to people who are gifted in thier fields, regardless of their economic background. It has its own bank, hospital, and transportation system.
