they also finally explained that too...and showed it all. generally speaking, a claymore should be good enough to overcome those vulnerabilities. if you manage to actually hit a claymore there, they probably weren't good enough to begin with.

Clare was hit there several times (the worst of them was when Ophelia cut her across the chest) and still lives so it probably isn't fatal as long as something (clothes, ribs, pressed hand) holds the isides from going outside.


you're right... but claire was always the weakest among them though. even so, this chapter just made me feel all warm and fuzzy.

Me too :)
As for Clare if the (theoreticaly) weakest among them was able to survive that then others should be even less affected by it.

There will be blood XD Especially if she heard everything Raki said to Clare XD


i am not sure though, i never got the impression Priscilla was as close to him as Claire is....they were together for a long time but it felt more like a big brother taking care of a little sister. but maybe this might cause something.

Rather loli big sister taking care of her little brother if the encounter with Renee is anything to judge by :) Still, she was attached to him more than to anyone since... well since she was forced to kill her family I think (does she even remember that far back?).
Jokes about clingy jealous girls going on killing sprees aside, Clare may be more of a problem than Priscilla since while Pris doesn't have any grudge toward her and possibly can be reasoned with if Raki steps in Clare will probably go nuts again and is likely to go into her kamikaze mode...

kisami said:
even so, they don't have time rest. a big baddie on its way.

Thereticaly it should not matter since if Priscilla turns out to be hostile they are screwed anyway and if she doesn't then what can a mere Abyssal One do in her presence?
Of course it's not going to be that easy since genres "Action" and "Shounen" oblige author to put some action in so someone is going to start a fight for sure...

I'm guessing that Natsu and Gajeel will kick their asses again, no problem.

Sting and Rogue will get kicked out of Sabretooth and get accepted into the Dragonslayer-hogging guild which is Fairy Tail.

i was expecting their bodies to be more gruesome but well, we finally see it, i wanted to see it from the first scene it was told to be gruesome.

So Clare is out just like that, but i'm guessing she changed drastically, so we shall see... :D

Prissy awaken to be killed by Clare's hand already, i want blood for Tressa...
We read 129 ch.s but she is still my favorite Claymore although She only appeared like 5-6 (don't know) ch.s. i want her to be avanged...

What? Just stitches running down the torso? That's all it took to send those thieves away in revulsion? What pansies. I would still hit that.

Well from the looks of it, it goes aaaallll the way down. So there was this guro hentai manga I once read with that girl that was vertically cut in half and didn't notice and then did it with her guy and...okay enough of that. Let's just say it wasn't pretty ^^

(Too bad the name escapes me right now. It was probably a Kago Shintaro. Who else comes up with shit like that)

Go to Visual Novel Database and look at the screenshots of Dustmania Grotesque, there are a lot of people (too many if you ask me) who go for that kind of shit.
I hope that no one with such fetishes exist in Claymore world...

Ever since Teresa revealed where the yoma flesh was implanted in her body to drive off those thieves I expected that part to be more grotesque. Or perhaps it was and the editors/publishers wouldn't allow it.


I was expecting something more grotesque too, for example in Clares case i tought Teresas face/head gona stick out of her belly or something.


Same here. Kind of disappointing it's not as grotesque as the impressive they gave.
I'm expecting Teresa's face/head could be seen for Clare's case as well.

When i first saw her emerging from that thing there didn't seem to be anything on her body and i thought the author used the merging with that monster to give her a new body so she can sex Raki all she wants without feeling embarrassed but i guess i was wrong. Yagi isn't much a fan of pleasantries.

The whole non-healing scar though seems stupid. We have seen Claymores getting wounded over that scar many times. So if it's so deadly to them i can't imagine how they are still alive.
Also that scar was basically from the neck down to their freaking pussy. I think we saw the full neck or little under it of Claymores before and i don't remember any scar which makes me think that this wasn't what Yagi was initially planning or he got forgotten while drawing a few times.

I was thinking the same and I went looking for proof but I couldn't find one - both normal Claymore clothes and the outfits the Ghosts wore covered the necks, so did the disguises Clare was wearing in "Darkness in Paradise" and "The Witch's Maw". I did not made page-by-page check of the whole manga so maybe there is something to be found there but it seems to me that so far, no matter how skimpy their outfits were, warriors always had their necks covered up tightly.

Raki's meeting with Clare was rather... sudden. Anyway, the deal with the bodies wasn't that much of shocking.

Am I the only one who didn't particularly cared about the reunion? ._. I mean it's nice for them to be back together and romantic stuff and so forth, but I wasn't even near tears then Raki jumped at her.

Neat chapter IMO, I liked it that lots of stuff happened and that that chick from the beginning is back on the team. The scar on the whole body is not a bad, could have been something better, could have been something worse. Re-reading some chapters I think i saw naked Claymores in, i found this. Maybe the scar was planed from the start.


On the other hand, does this count as an counter-argument? This is an awakened after all.

No, it doesn't. Awakened beings in their human form have their old human hair color so it seems that they can assume the form they had before organization tampered with their bodies. Perhaps their shapeshifting abilities allow them to overcome the limitations put on regenerative abilities or something.
HandedSword said:

I'm reading both. Personally I like Claymore better but not by that much. Main problems with Berserk are it's ridiculously slow (and unpredictably irregular) publishing rate, it's tendency to go off-track with the story (but then again last arc of Claymore (the whole fight with ressurrected number ones) did not have much point to it either) and the fact that original seinen genre is lately shifting into shounen but the story still is good and the world setting is far more complex than the one we have now in Claymore (I hope it will change in the future though).

I totally concur, was hoping for something that would make me sick, but noooo, just a big surgery cut, wonder if they can have sex this way without splitting up.

I thought I'd offer these as example of how early on the scar was planned. These were taken from chapter 33, I think. I grabbed them a couple of days ago.

Maybe I'm crazy, but I was actually hoping that the author would never reveal how a Claymore's body actually looked like... It was just one of those big mysteries in the story that you always wondered about but it was left to the imagination. Also there was such a huge build up (those pack of thieves, grown up Raki crying from seeing it etc.) to it that it kind of disappointed me.

Still very nice chapter. As usual, waiting for next month's chapter will be really difficult..

No. you're not crazy. I was also hoping this and many other peoples as well. It's not a problem to leave some mysteries to reader imagination. especially this kind of mysteries where most of people thought it will be something grotesque. So there was bound to be disappointment for some. Though i'm glad it was not something like that.

The whole guro hype was kind of disappointing, should have left it up to imagination. Kind of explain why the thieves from way back didn't give a damn about getting with Teresa after she tried to scare them away.

Raki back together with Clare, finally and officially. Gonna miss the old fan-visual of Clare seeing Raki grown up self as Guts from Berserk (great pic).

Now potential for bloody triangle with RakixClarexPriscilla, oh goodie~~~

I cried. That was great. T_T

I expected the body to be much worse... Kinda like aftermath of severe burns-type scarring on their bodies or something, but just a big open wound doesn't seem as bad aesthetically. Certainly not quite as grotesque as it was hyped to be.

That would actually be amazing to see Teresa reappear in the Manga. Either through that, or maybe similarly to the way the three #1's were brought back. I'd love to see Teresa herself kill Priscilla.

She never cared about Raki. She only stayed with him because that scent she couldn't remember what it was about it that was so familiar -- it was Teresa, through Clare's scent on Raki.

grandy_UiD said:
On a side note: can someone remind me what happend to the Raphaela/Luciela-thingy? I think that was just left hanging or did I forget something?


Rafaela gave her life to Luciela the moment she died so that she could live on, which subsequently fused them together instead.

At which point, they tried to have Reneé awaken the being, but it ended up being Clare that inadvertently did it.

When Clare stumbled into their consciousness, she was challenged by Rafaela and was told she would be cut down if she couldn't defeat her. So, she had to finally release her yoki and use the quick sword she'd been hiding for 7 years and defeated Rafaela pretty easily.

At which point, all of Rafaela's memories, her essence, and pretty much everything that made her herself flooded into Clare, as Clare's gift for killing her. That was the deal, right? If she could kill her, Rafaela would tell her "what she needed to know" - though it was never clear what that "what" was exactly. I suspect we'll find out soon.

I think we may see that somewhere in new skills, or powers. I mean basically gaining everything from someone who was an equivilant to a #1 surely had some kind of an effect.

So while I'd like to see some kind of Teresa play in, somehow I expect it to be something to do with that.

Have to wonder if Raki is going to be as hated pretty soon when Clare and Priscilla start fighting as he was in the Anime, cause gawd I hated his guts there...

That's not possible. Claire was alive and merged with Awakened being while Teresa is dead. Priscilla bisected her head. Bringing back Teresa from a blob means every claymore can come back like that. Though she can be revived like other warriors from previous arc. Dae ran away, he might do something and put her against Priscilla. That could really help all other warriors in upcoming fight and Claire can have last reunion.

I think that they still kind of leave a bit to the imagination because in one panel, Yuma explained how Clare's intestines were almost spilling out, yet we do not get a visual of that, which means the readers must imagine what it would look like. Also it was stated that the Organization experimented with different methods of sealing the wound. This could indicate that earlier generations of Claymore had inferior bonds on that scar, or maybe they underwent surgery that left them in a more messed up state. Anyway, I believe that even with what they have shown, there is still room for reader's to have their own perceptions!

To me, the Claymore body mystery revelation thing is just fine. I was guessing something more grotesque too but that doesn't mean my satisfaction has to base on the grotesque level.

I think the concept of 'injury-before-transformation' would work here. Like, the massive frontal cut was done prior to receiving youma power and therefore would not heal (healing is kinda like returning the body to its initial state, and the initial state is their body with the scar.) However for fully-awakened beings, their bodies are further tweaked/transformed, and the so-called 'initial states' of their bodies no longer apply since they get a different form. That's why there ain't scars on the Abyssal ones.

In any case, loving the reunion, it's going a little slow but hey what the heck, I'm loving this series!

A single piece of Priscila in one of the revived #1's was enough to show a remnant of Priscila.

Well, if nothing else... I can dream. T_T

hm i found the mystery behind the bodies of the claymores interesting i always wondered what was so horrible about their bodies and now we know which makes a lot of sense when you think about it since they are like split open and inserted with youma flesh and blood in every part of their body so its like birth mark for claymores but the reunion between Raki and Clare was too nice.

How many chapters has it been before this moment? Too long!

Shame they cannot enjoy their encounter. Priscilla will wake up now.
