Chobits, by Clamp

Clamp is an all-female manga team, whose shoujo works have often been made into anime. The group started out as a twelve-piece, but now consists of four members: Ageha Ohkawa (b. 2/5/1967, the main scriptwriter), Mokona Apapa (b. 16/6/1968, the main artist and character designer), Tsubaki Nekoi (b. 21/1/1969, art assistant) and Satsuki Igarashi (b. 8/2/1969, art assistant). The original team also contained Tamayo Akiyama, Leeza Sei, Sei Nanao, Soshi Hishiki, Kazue Nakamori, Shinya Ohmi, O-Kyon and occasional guests. The serials from the early period include 'Derayd' and 'Cluster'.

Of the current team, Mokona is the main artist, and her style is the trademark of the studios. However, serials like 'Watashi no Suki na Hito', 'Wish', 'Suki', and 'Dakara Suki' were drawn by Tsubaki Nekoi. Among the group's serials are 'Clover' (in Amie magazin), 'Kobato' (in Monthly Sunday Gene-X and Newtype, 'Tsubasa - Reservoir Chronicle' (in Weekly Shonen Magazine) and 'xxxHOLIC' (in Young Magazine). Completed works include 'Angelic Layer', 'Chobits', 'Clamp School Detectives', 'The Legend of Chun Hyang', 'Magic Knight Rayearth' and 'Miyuki-chan in Wonderland'.
