For $1 Name a Woman - or Four Female Mangaka

We discuss the formation and history of the all female manga group, Clamp. This group of four women broke many records in Japan by printing and selling millions of their original manga, all while keeping their identities a secret. They've created many household names in manga and anime, such as Cardcaptor Sakura, and they've worked on anime too (Code Geass). In addition to discussing the music that's appeared in their anime, we talk about different women in manga, and specific manga created by women (e.g. Full Metal Alchemist, Ranma 1/2, and Inuyasha).
