Back when I was a teenager I started the CLAMP series Legal Drug. I read volumes 1 and 2…then never got around to reading volume 3. The series wasn’t officially finished. The magazine the manga was in closed, and it took years for it to get picked up by a different magazine. But I’ll get more into that later as it’s kind of interesting.
I recently saw the continuation of the series available in English. It’s called Drug and Drop, and I was so excited to get to it. With so many years of difference, I was curious to finish this first set off and move on. Unfortunately, I won’t be continuing on to it now as I DNFed volume 3.
It’s safe to say that I’m very disappointed.
Legal Drug follows two 17-year-old boys who work at the Green Pharmacy. They spend their days working as shop assistants, but every now and then, their boss, Kakei offers them a different job that only someone with psychic powers can complete. Kazahaya can touch things and see memories, and Rikuo can destroy things with a thought. You don’t really see much of Rikuo’s power, but it’s still there. Using these abilities, they’re trying to solve some mysteries connected to their own pasts whilst trying to earn extra money.Continue reading “Do I Still Like This Manga? Legal Drug 1-3 by CLAMP”
