''Gate 7'' is the newest manga by the popular all-female manga-ka circle known as Creator/{{CLAMP}}.

When Chikahito Takamoto decides to finally take a trip to Kyoto he stumbles across three strangers. When he realizes things aren't quite what they seem, he is attacked by a faceless creature that is quickly slain by Hana. Chikahito wakes up in an apartment and is greeted and offered udon by Hana, Tachibana, and Sakura who have gone through his things, thinking him an assassin. For some reason, Chikahito is unaffected when Tachibana tries to remove his memory. Flashforward three months later and Chikahito has tranferred schools to Kyoto and is now involved with the trio. One thing is known: this wasn't the Kyoto he wanted to experience.

!! This manga provides examples of:

* ActionGirl: While Mikoto's specialty is divination, she can also use her [[WordsCanBreakMyBones kotodama]] for offense.
* AfterActionPatchup: Masamune get a cut on his nose; though he was expecting a SmoochOfVictory, a lick of Hana on his wound is good enough to him to proclaim that day as special for all eternity.
* AwesomeArt: Though CLAMP is famous for their CostumePorn and SceneryPorn, ''Gate 7'' takes the cake. They haven't done something as beautiful since ''Manga/RGVeda''.
* AntiMagic: Probably Chikahito, given that Mikoto's description of him is "everything is cleared out" and Tachibana's memory removal does not work on him.
** But wait, if he's an AntiMagic, [[FridgeLogic how could Hana put the Modoridori on him?]]
* TheBeautifulElite
* BeautyEqualsGoodness: Subverted, since Iemitsu is an EvenTheGuysWantHim {{Bishounen}} and he's a villain.
* BeethovenWasAnAlienSpy: [[spoiler: UsefulNotes/OdaNobunaga, UsefulNotes/ToyotomiHideyoshi and UsefulNotes/AkechiMitsuhide were all contractors of Oni. Oda Nobunaga and Akechi Mitsuhide also seem to be not quite dead]].
* BigDamnHeroes: [[spoiler:Masamune in chapter four.]]
* BigEater: Hana, especially where [[TrademarkFavoriteFood noodles]] are concerned.
* BloodOath: The blood contract with the Oni.
* BondCreatures: The Oni.
* BreatherEpisode: Chapter 18. No big fights, no enemies introduced, just a normal morning for Chikahito and company.
* CastFullOfPrettyBoys: It's Creator/{{CLAMP}}, what you did expect?
* Creator/{{CLAMP}}: Their newest series.
* DamselInDistress: [[spoiler: Sugihime]].
* DeathGlare: Akechi attempts one in order to intimidate Hana; Hana gives one in return, creeping Akechi out.
* DeliciousDistraction: Hana can't go on errands on her own because the mere smell of [[TrademarkFavoriteFood noodles]] takes her out of the way.
* DopeSlap: Kojyuuroh's main method to keep Masamune in check.
* EyepatchOfPower: Masamune. He is the [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Date_Masamune one-eyed dragon]] after all.
* EvenTheGuysWantHim: Iemitsu. The Ten Braves seem to like Yukimura ''a lot'' too.
* FaceFramedInShadow/ InTheHood: [[spoiler: Sugihime's introduction]].
* {{Fainting}}: Chikahito somehow manages to faint twice in the first chapter.
* FinishingEachOthersSentences: Part of the ShipTease between Tachibana and Sakura.
* FloralThemeNaming: The three members of the Urashichiken. See MeaningfulName below.
* TheFourGods: On the covers of the compiled volumes.
* GenderBlenderName: The biggest guy is named Sakura...
* GISSyndrome: Many backgrounds are pictures of Kyoto locations.
* [[spoiler: GoThroughMe: Chikahito puts himself between Masamune and Gracia to prevent the former from killing the latter.]] This counts as a CrowningMomentOfAwesome for [[OrdinaryHighSchoolStudent Chikahito]], who has been rather [[NonActionGuy non-aggressive]] prior to this.
* GottaCatchThemAll: To obtain the Dairokuten Maou, one must subdue the greatest amount of Oni as possible in the world. [[spoiler: This can be accomplished by either making the Oni's owner a subordinate or killing the owner and stealing the Oni]].
* HandsomeLech: Sakura is hinted to be this.
* HoldingHands: Hana and Chikahito
* [[{{Omochikaeri}} I'm Taking It Home With Me]]: Inverted, the RidiculouslyCuteCritter wants to go home with the protagonists.

* LampshadedTrope: [[http://www.mangareader.net/gate-7/1/12 "Wait, isn't this like]] [[http://mangafox.me/manga/gate_7/c000/28.html last time's development!?"]]
* LoveFlowers: These occur frequently, particularly whenever [[ShipTease Chikahito stares at Hana]].
* MeaningfulName: Mikoto's name is composed of the kanji for "god" and "word", which hints that she can use [[WordsCanBreakMyBones kotodama]]. Tachibana ("wild orange") and Sakura ("cherry tree") are named after the orange and cherry trees in front of the throne hall of Heian Palace.
* NoBiologicalSex: Hana, maybe.
* NoodlePeople
* OneHeadTaller: So far, Hana is dwarfed by all of the male characters.

* PandaingToTheAudience: [[http://www.mangareader.net/gate-7/18/14 Hana's panda costume]].
* LockedOutOfTheLoop: Explanations are slow coming from the Urashichiken residents, leaving Chikahito (and the audience) in the dark about what is really going on with the oni and their masters.
* PowerCopying: [[spoiler: Hana's ability.]]
* ThePowerOfLove: [[CrazyJealousGuy Masamune]] claims to Gracia that if her Oni's abillity is to control men's hearts, it wouldn't work on him because his heart is Hana's already. [[HilarityEnsues Cue]] ImagineSpot.
* RidiculouslyCuteCritter / CuteKitten: Just look at this little boy, [[http://www.mangahere.com/manga/gate_7/c015/21.html It's fricking adorable!]]
** TeamPet: Since Hana adopted it.
* RunningGag: Chikahito screaming and Tachibana saying him he's too loud. DopeSlap optional.
* SacredFirstKiss: It's implied that Chikahito's first kiss is taken by Hana [[spoiler: when the latter performs a charm on him to make him return to Kyoto]]
* SchoolUniformsAreTheNewBlack: Now that the school year began, we can expect a lot of chapters with Chikahito in his uniform.
* {{Seers}}: Mikoto's forte. [[spoiler: Also, Sugihime's power.]]
* ShownTheirWork: In real life, Date Masamune is probably bi. In show he's obsessed with the one agendered character.
* StrangeMindsThinkAlike: Well, when it's about "Hana being cute", Chikahito ''and Tachibana'' of course [[http://www.mangareader.net/gate-7/19/5 think alike.]]
* SupremeChef: Chkahito.
* TrademarkFavoriteFood: Hana ''loves'' noodles.
