I recently bought (and immediately read and finished) Clover as a collected full edition, which is by the manga artists group CLAMP. I do not want to give any more spoilers than the back cover, so here’s the synopsis from the back cover itself:
“Kazuhiko is a young, but already deeply wounded, black-ops agent of a baroque, retro-tech world-pulled out of retirement to escort Sue, a mysterious waif, to a destination she alone knows. Sue and Kazuhiko have never met… yet she knows him, having grown up since the age of four with her only human contact being two distant voices: that of her elderly “grandma” – Kazuhiko’s commander, general Ko; and that of Kazuhiko’s dead girlfriend, the beautiful singer Ora.
And Sue has been kept in that cage all these years because of what she is, and what the Clover Leaf Project found her to be: a military top secret…and the most dangerous person in the world.”
I think the artwork is amazing, well of course coming from CLAMP, that was expected already :) The ISBN of the book I bought is 978-1-59582-196-6
Here are some pieces of art from the manga:
Here is the music video made for Clover, don’t watch it if you don’t want any spoilers, although it doesn’t give much away it can make the reader unpleasant to know about one or two details..
