Clover Omnibus - CLAMP

The structure of this series:


Clover 1 - Confusing action that doesn't feel like action because of how CLAMP drew it all. This thing is style over clarity, but it's so pretty I can almost forgive it.


Clover 2 - Finally, a few explanations. And tragedy.


Clover 3 - A giant flashback.


Clover 4 - I only just started this, but it looks like it's an even deeper flashback, to the time before Clover 3's flashback.


Throughout everything: song lyrics in a fancy font that's a bit too hard for me to read. So I've stopped trying.


I've heard that this series was supposed to be a couple volumes longer but was ended prematurely, so I'm bracing myself for a frustrating ending.
