This summer, the manga that put CLAMP on the map will be released by Dark Horse. The entire RG Veda story will be collected in three different omnibus volumes. The first, with over 600 pages will feature full color pages, high-quality paper, and a large print format.
RG Veda (pronounced “Rig Veda”) is based on a classic Indian Saga. It follows Yasha, a former warrior king, who is now the lord over a slaughtered people that he was unable to save. He travels across the lush land as the protector of the genderless Ashura, whose fate is tied to the doom for many. They are two of the “Six Stars” and journey to find the remaining four members to fulfill the prophecy and defeat the evil usurper of heaven’s throne, Taishakuten. However, prophecies are open to interpretation.
