I love it. It's so mysterious and pretty to look at. But I should hesitate because CLAMP has placed Legal Drug on hold and there really are three volumes out only.

i've read all 3 volumes. i think it sucks that it was a discontinue story. i heard the problem was that the magazine in which it's released in doesn't want that manga anymore, so now Clamp is lookin fer another magazine to put it in.

Sad, really...

I had thought it was because the Mag. that it was published in went out of busyness and they were lookin' for a new mag to put it in. but that could be misinformation??

Meet Kazahaya and Rikuo. By day, they are two ordinary pharmacists at the Green Drug pharmacy; by night, their boss has them filling 'special prescriptions' for clients with ailments that can't be cured using ordinary elixirs.

With cameos from the cast of Suki, this CLAMP series is a perfect dose of mystery, psychic powers, and those ornately drawn characters for which the femme-four creators are so justly famous.

^^got it off of the tokyopop website

Hey... if you watch xxxholic they make an anime appearance at the beginning of episode 6. ^_^ My jaw dropped open and I got so excited cuz I thought I'd never hear about it again. ><;; So yeah.. I'm taking it that CLAMP are trying to get more publicity for the series (I'm rooting for them) and that... it's set in the same world. =D which makes sense! The theme's very similar to XXXholic.

I've got the first 3 volumes.... it's definitely got the CLAMP essence so if you're a fan of them you'll definitely like it. I even got a friend of mine who's not really into manga/anime to read it.

Out of all the CLAMPs I've read so far this one has more shonen ai teasing (but it isn't shonen ai... Kazahaya just gets teased a lot.) Heaps of the wall art I think is definitely targeted to shonen ai fans. So if you're a fan of SA you might dig this... and if you're not, then you have nothing to really worry about. ^^;;

Vol 3 finally came out in the states and according to wiki, CLAMP is planning on starting the series again once they are done with Tsubasa and Holic (I nearly jumped outta me chair when I read that) Im a huge Kazahaya fangirl \o/ I would just die if a series ever came of this, I was so happy to see them in Holic 6

Does this manga involve any gangs or yakuza? From the title it would seem like it but I just wanna make sure. It does sound interesting though. What kind of mystery are we talkin about? Murder? Medical?

Um no, think xxxHolic style but set in a drug store. The two main characters work at the store but also to other jobs for their boss. Has a sci-fi/mystery feel to it...course its only 3 vols at the moment...

Does somebody read Drug&Drop?
We're still having this slow pace but with the introduction of the crazy yandere sister and crossovers with xxx Holic and Wish it's getting quite interesting.
Not mentioning that prediction of a dark future for the characters.

Spoiler for drug&drop chapter 10:
