Clockwork Planet (クロックワーク・プラネット, Kurokkuwāku Puranetto) abbreviated as CloPla (クロプラ, KuroPura) is a Japanese light novel series by a collaboration of Yuu Kamiya and Tsubaki Himana with Shino in charge of the illustrations. It's published under Kodansha's Ranobe imprint.
According to the two authors, it's explained that the collaboration was born because the story can't be differentiated anymore, whether it's Yuu Kamiya's work, or Tsubaki Himana's. When Kamiya Yuu had received a cancer treatment aboard, he is interested in a brochure about clockwork in a shop, this is the base of the plot, but Kamiya's style of writing isn't fit enough, so he approached Himana Tsubaki for a collaboration. Originally, Kamiya Yuu is the one in charge of the illustrations, but he refused and brought Shino to make the illustrations. This is the first debut of Himana Tsubaki.
