And reportedly (according to Vic) they said 'no". *and this is only from watching the 9 minute rant*
I find this hard to believe on several levels.
CLAMP is very elusive.. they neither confirm nor deny things. It's how they operate and a good reason of why I love them. Anyone asks, I highly doubt that they would give a straight answer.. because they are LIKE that. As kaitou_marina stated, they know limited english and Vic knows limited Japanese. You can see where that would get very FUN to muddle through. Seriously though, I could say that they would say 'yes' but even I know that isn't the truth. This is CLAMP you are dealing with after all, they make money off of faceplanting millions of fangirls everywhere.
Try a little harder, Vic. Try to make your lies more convincing and then -maybe- people will believe them. (that is why I think that religion and ethics should stay the hell out of anime.. because Vic is turning his anime career into an anti-buttsecks pro-jesus-christ campaign and I have no problem with that.. but not a whole lot of people are going to be listening to him at anime-cons where the main point of them -are- fantasy worlds and unreality)
It is obviously a very clamp-ranty week.
