What if Osabu and TOEI got Miracle You(Card Captor Sakura) instead of Sailor V in 1991, CLAMP was actually starting to shed their former members at that time, the illustrator of Miracle You left CLAMP in 1992, I wonder if they picked Miracle You instead of making Naoko do or continue Sailor V would TOEI, Osabu, and CLAMP have a good partnership.

I think if they had taken Miracle You, it might have taken Yu-Gi-Oh!'s place in anime history if they went with cards...

That being a short, 27 episode adaptation by Toei (bad ratings that boosted during the second cour, but if you don't do well on your first one, you don't get a third), followed by a 2 year wait for NAS to animate it, but not adapting the early material, plus a lot of Virtual World arcs.
But, that's my silly thought on it.

Actually, Miracle You does not have clow cards yet, although I agree that it might get animated by somebody else since Miracle You has a fashion theme which Card Captor Sakura retained, Miracle You is like Ultra Maniac.

I fear that TOEI would repress CLAMP‘s creative freedom and individuality, so I think that all worked out for the best.

If you go to Nanase Ohkawa’s IMDB page, you will notice that she closely supervised the production of many CLAMP adaptations as a writer and co-writer. She made sure that each anime would reflect CLAMP’s vision.

When Ohkawa did not work directly with the studio (for example, Bee Train’s “Tsubasa Reservoir Chronicles”), the studio took liberties that made CLAMP and some of the manga fans very unhappy.

On top of a possible lousy adaptation, you might see legal issues down the line similar to Candy Candy because you don't see Leeza Sei, the former illustrator of Miracle You having a good relationship with CLAMP compared to Tamayo Akiyama who is still friends with Ohkawa, CLAMP let go of Combination which was illustrated by Leeza Sei and let her continue on her name and have her name only on the republications of the manga, I doubt CLAMP would let go of Miracle You if it had gotten at least an anime adaptation.

To be honest, I sadly have never heard of or read “Miracle you.” :orly:

The earliest CLAMP works I am acquainted with and/or have read are ”Tokyo Babylon,” “X/1999,” “Clamp School Detectives” and “Magic Knight Rayearth.”

The one that intrigues me the most is “X/1999” because the story never received a proper ending. According to what I have been told, the story was getting very violent and the editors of the magazine (Monthly Asuka) asked Nanase Ohkawa to tone down the violence; however, she chose to stop writing it. Of course, we got the anime and the film (I personally cannot see the film), but neither the anime or the film have the ending that Ohkawa had in mind.

In any event, I don’t think the world needs an apocalyptic story now. Give me “Cardcaptor Sakura” and “xxxHolic.”

Then we'd be having long-winded transformations based on each card...Basically it would be some variant of the Hell/Doom Tree Saga..lol
Miracle You is CCS that has no cards and Sakura is from another world and Syaoran is from Japan, which is more closer to Kobato.

A brave magical girl has been dropped into the human world to choose a "Husband" from among "Humans". The heroine, Yuu Asahina, who came to the human world encounters Shuusei Ohtsuki, "the neighbour".

Magic Knight Rayearth was toned down in its serialization and the manga of Clamp Campus Detectives was rushed, Bandai allowed them to make the anime version of these works done as they wished.

Did Nakayoshi ask CLAMP to tone down the violence in “Magic Knight Rayearth”?

I haven’t read the manga in ages, but from what I recall there were some depictions of blood when the girls fought.

I love MKR. Beautiful story.

No one said that CLAMP was asked to tone down MKR, but CLAMP decided to fit the manga to the readers of Nakayoshi, It is not blood that CLAMP toned down in MKR but the inappropriate relationships, CCS was published after SM finished so CCS benefited from the new policies of Nakayoshi in the later parts of Sailor Moon's serialization.
