A 9 rating from me. An excellent show, and definitely within my top three anime's of all time (perhaps even tied for number one overall).

Highlights:

Actually, there is another option I believe the author could possibly use for Raki. Since humans have no youki, it might be possible for them to affect it in some special way that Claymores cannot....

Whether Jeane was more "fully awakened" than Clare physically is difficult to judge. However, it is certain that Jeane's mind hadn't awakened (this was the whole point of her being able to ask Clare...

I am not assuming that at all, nor did I say anything about killing Priscilla triggering the awakening. Here is the story that we all just watched:

Simply put: I love this series. What an unexpected gem.

Some minor quibbles with this episode, but mostly a very good battle.

It's amazing when a buildup/setup episode is this good. There were at least six or seven distinct sub-stories that moved forward in this episode, and they all interested me greatly:

This episode was a pure adrenaline rush from start to end. Reminded me somewhat of the episode with Theresa's "battle royale" against Irene, Noel, Sophia, and Priscilla.

Anyway, this fight flowed...

Another great episode. The fight between Miria and Rigardo definitely lived up to its billing. I liked the way Deneve, Helen, and Clare fought to protect her. I had hoped we would learn more about...
