Looks like it's time to refresh the following announcement for any benighted souls still amongst us:
CLAMP did not start out as a doujinshi circle called "Amarythia"!!!!
Amarythia is a name of my own invention, circa 1999. I have no and pretend no affiliation with CLAMP. The error arises from a citation in an academic paper about CLAMP's doujinshi that refers back to me, the original source of information, and was codified on Wikipedia for several years (until my edit finally took!) by some anonymous idiot who misunderstood the citation. The above claim conflating CLAMP and "Amarythia," not to mention even more erroneous and personally offensive variations, has since been regurgitated elsewhere online as recently as mid-2007. This needs to stop, people. Now.
Feel free to cut-and-paste or link to this entry if you wish to correct any misapprehensions regarding this issue that you see, now or in the future.EDIT: I'm currently being informed that this error has been showing up in cons and was even printed in an Anime Expo program booklet!!! I didn't know that. So pleasepleasePLEASE, manga/anime fans out there who give a damn about getting the facts straight, help me get the truth out! T_T
