CLAMP produced a new Gate 7 illustration for one of four posters included in the first issue of JUMP SQ. LaB, a collection of one-shots by various artists. (CLAMP themselves didn't contribute anything else, but don't be surprised if we see something Gate 7 related in the distant future.) You can see it here at [livejournal.com profile] chibiyuuto's journal!

The "Member" section of CLAMP's website has been gradually updated with Hana and Chikahito avatars, with Hana getting two wardrobe sets and Chikahito getting his outfit and guidebook from the first chapter. (Yes, you can dress them up as different CLAMP characters.) Unfortunately, the actual Character page for Gate 7 has never been updated since it was opened, and I myself have no reasonable explanation for that (beyond negligence).

There are no words left.

On the topic of negligence, I need to apologize for being absent from this community and from LiveJournal in general for so long. I'm currently in an intensive language-study program in Russia, and have not only had little time to go online, but also little time to even keep up on news about the series. Considering that Gate 7 is a monthly series, and that I only have one more month to go over here, this situation shouldn't continue for much longer; however, should it turn out that I can't manage the updates, Character page, and upcoming Synopsis, History, and Folklore sections come September, then I'll get together with [livejournal.com profile] jlarinda and [livejournal.com profile] samekh and discuss the possibility of vetting a new moderator. Hopefully it won't come to that, though!

With all that said, we're now six five chapters into the series! How have you enjoyed it so far? Do you like the current historically-based themes of the story, or would you have preferred the original dream-based plot described back in 2008? What battle-scarred, middle-aged warlord is going to get a makeover next? Share your thoughts!

No problem dear, you are doing what you can.

To be honest, I was expecting the original dream-based plot. For me, it's very hard to understand the story with all that Historical information going on.
I like it when it's something like Rurouni Kenshi, but Gate7 is just throwing a lot of information and I can't keep up with it.
But regarding the battles I'm loving it. :D

Hey, don't beat yourself up over it. To be fair, CLAMP fandom in general has been very quiet... so don't worry about being away from the computer so often. I had a friend who studied abroad in Russia, and she had a similar issue with internet. I hope you're having a fun time, in any case!

Also if the need for another moderator ever arises, I offer my services? I've co-modded a few comms before, some CLAMP, so I have experience in that respect.

As for how I like the series so far... I'm enjoying it if only because the art is pretty. Once I sit down and try to sift through all the historical content (and kinda sorta get it), I really enjoy it. I really hope we... figure out what the plot is, soon, though. lol. I guess it's the weight of a month to month basis, and especially the break taken after the earthquake and tsunami, but it seems that lots and lots of characters are being thrown at us but I'm not entirely sure what all the purposes and plots and relationships are supposed to be. Hopefully they'll be revealed in time!

Hey hey ~

Just wanted to let you know that [livejournal.com profile] irenegerke and myself have started assembling both character bios and bios of the people they are based on. We've also started toying with mapping out their relationships visually to make things a little easier (we've noticed that a lot of people on forums are having a hard time keeping up with all the great many ties between people). We're not done yet by any means, but should have some stuff ready to go in the next couple of weeks. I know you've got the character page up and going already (and I really like the format of it) - should I pm you with new things we come up with, or make a post in the group and let you move it? Whichever is easiest for you is fine for us!
