Read full description of the books:
My first experiment with downloading manga to read on my computer/tablet. Technologically and aesthetically successful. I read all four volumes, completing the story arc.
Very pretty artwork, questionable theology. It seems to be a weird sort of amalgam of Western and Eastern notions of angels, served up in CLAMP's gonzo style. (Well, the notion of angels being born/hatched from eggs growing on the Tree of Life in Heaven was new to me altogether.) A young and somewhat airheaded angel comes to Earth and is rescued from danger by a human, with whom s/he falls in love; after that, things go stranger. A secondary supernatural couple is even more interesting, because not airheads. We do eventually get a happily-ever-after of sorts, courtesy of reincarnation and some other slight-of-hand, which I will not detail due to spoilers. I suppose one could dub it paranormal or fantasy romance, on the magical-girl side, but... different.
I was led back to this work from Legal Drug, which I am going to have to go back and look at again, because Wish really, really changes how I was led to frame the other story.
There's a coinage I devised -- "cognitive torsion" -- for the sensation of having one's narrative (or cultural) expectations, not to mention one's head, turned inside-out by the course of a tale or some other new piece of knowledge. Anime and manga frequently supply it, very much part of why I enjoy them.

CLAMP originally began in 1989 as a twelve-member dōjinshi circle, but by 1990, the circle had diminished from twelve to seven. Of the remaining seven, Tamayo Akiyama, Sei Nanao, and Leeza Sei left the group during the production of the RG Veda manga. Other former members of CLAMP also included Soushi Hishika, O-Kyon, Kazue Nakamori, Yuzuru Inoue and Shinya Ōmi. Currently, there are four members in the group.
In 2004, CLAMP's 15th anniversary as a mangaka group, the members changed their names from Nanase Ohkawa, Mokona Apapa, Mick Nekoi, and Satsuki Igarashi to Ageha Ohkawa, Mokona, Tsubaki Nekoi and Satsuki Igarashi (her name is pronounced the same, but written with different characters) respectively. The August 2004 issue of Newtype USA, a magazine specializing in events of the anime and manga subcultures, reported that the members of CLAMP simply wanted to try out new names. In a later interview with Ohkawa, it was revealed that initially Mokona wanted to drop her surname because it sounded too immature for her liking, while Nekoi disliked people commenting that her name was the same as Mick Jagger's. Ohkawa and Igarashi, wanting to go with the flow of Nekoi's and Mokona's name changes, changed their names as well.
In 2006, they made their first USA public debut at Anime Expo in Anaheim, California. They were well received at the convention, with 6,000 fans in attendance at their panel.
