''Gate 7'' is the newest manga by the popular all-female manga-ka circle known as Creator/{{CLAMP}}. It was first published in 2011 in ''Jump SQ'' and went into a hiatus in 2014.

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.
* TheBeautifulElite: Chikahito even lampshades how beautiful people seems to be gathering at Kyoto.
* BeautyEqualsGoodness: Subverted, since Iemitsu is an EvenTheGuysWantHim {{Bishounen}} and he's a villain.
* BeethovenWasAnAlienSpy: [[spoiler: Every big character from the Sengoku era was a Oni contractor, which allowed them the power to fight]].
* BigDamnHeroes: Masamune in chapter four.
* BigEater: Hana, especially where [[TrademarkFavoriteFood noodles]] are concerned.
* BloodOath: The blood contract with the Oni.
* BondCreatures: The Oni. They're bond to those that have the thicker bloodties with their original contractors.

* CastFullOfPrettyBoys: It's Creator/{{CLAMP}}, what you did expect?
* Creator/{{CLAMP}}
* ColorCodedCharacter: Tachibana belongs to the Yang kind but he dresses mostly in black, while Sakura is from the Yin kind but he dresses in white and light colors.
* 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.
* DelayedReaction: In his first mornin in the Urashichiken, Sakura informs to Chikahito that he tends to sleep light for certain reasons. Chikahito needs some time to put Sakura's "Can't sleep without human warmth" and "Companion" words in a way that makes sense. Cue LuminescentBlush.
* DopeSlap: Kojyuuroh's main method to keep Masamune in check.
* ElementalRockPaperScissors: Hana's Myouhou manifests in elemental attacks and uses them accordly to exploit the elemental weakness of her opponents. In a similar vein, enemies of the Yin genus can only be defeated with a Yang weapon and viseversa.
* 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.

* 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.

* 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.
