As we all know, april 1st is an important date for Clamp, since this is the birthday of many of their most beloved and popular characters, and it's also Clamp's Anniversary.Last year
, they mimicked the behavior of a company website named Shigatsu Tsuitachi CO.,LTD
, with CLAMP's characters as employees of that "company". This year, there wasn't not much from their side, as of now at least (the day hasn't ended yet): they wrote a short message on their blog
, they simply say that rather than an event or a lie, they'd rather simply celebrate with everyone...which is why I suppose they have been posting many fans artworks on their twitter
The only thing in their twitter which attracted my attention is about a...'lottery'? (一番くじ | 一番くじ カードキャプターさくら ～クロウカード編～ さんから 今日の良き日に、こちらも発表になりました。) following the link you end up in a page about popular characters goods, and they are advertising for something CCS related (again, that lottery thing) that should be released by the end of June 2014, cost 600jpy.
That's all nice and good till this point until you see that the company releasing it is called...Shigatsu Tsuitachi mmmhhh....but still, I saw the news of this june lottery posted in others japanese websites, and it seems like this info has been going around for the past 2 weeks, so I believe it shouldn't be an april joke. The name Shigatsu Tsuitachi has been appearing here and there on Clamp's goodies since last year.
There is also a listing of the prizes of the lottery: a new (apparently?) CCS figure, a Kero plush toy, nail art seat, towel, stationary set, a Clow card style greeting card etc...
