Claymore Chapter 129 Discussion
Aug 4, 2012 11:50 PM
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...
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...

What? Just stitches running down the torso? That's all it took to send those thieves away in revulsion?
I too found that dubious, but maybe her stichews were a little loose and somethin was hanging out outside?
What pansies. I would still hit that.
One of them did decide on raping her anyway so...
(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...

Just me or was getting Clare out of that mass a little too easy?
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.

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.

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.
anyone read berserk? i found claymore to be way better and more developed than berserk >.> and yet claymore has lower score
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).

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 feel like I have a sick mind because of what I imagined the Claymores body to look like. I imagined something 10x's more grotesque than what was provided.

Maybe I'm crazy, but I was actually hoping that the author would never reveal how a Claymore's body actually looked like...
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.
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!

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.

Chapters 129 and 130 have been changed significantly by Yagi himself in the tankobon version. You can see details here:
