The most annoying thing is they introduced a plothole because they remove the manga reason why Raki was there .. the obvious one was the claymore graveyard... Lets dont cheat ourself and give random bullshit that Organisation buries them/ or the AB themself have time burrying those claymore.

And here come Raki, walking/travelling all the way to the deepest cold to find his love .. meet with 2 strangers .. and easily accepted their offer to go back south again? Bull!

About how did Raki go north...

I feel annoy too but not because it makes more sense. But because it can effect the "major" plot in later story.

Spoiler for manga:

Who did bury the corpse? I thought Priss. Reason? Please wait to see more Priss's current state.

Jeebus! Get a clue man.
Lol, wow people in this forum want raki to die more than his brother did
If all these negative opinons actually affected the story raki would have died horribly ages ago

Seeing the changes that have been made with this episode, I'm starting to believe the anime will actually have an ending.

~edit~ and oh yes Raki should die.

Im not a Raki hater. Im just annoyed he didnt pick up on the "smells good" clue considering what happened last time someone said that. He doesnt know about Awakened Beings, but he should think their Yoma at least. I mean she transformed into a monster right in front of him.

Then again... Priscilla didnt try to eat him right after saying that so.... Unless he suspects, but doesnt plays dumb cus he knows that hes a dead man if they know he knows...

Spoiler for reply to part of spoiler:


Gave the episode an 8, reading the comment on how it was animated as if most of the claymores were doing flashswords really did effort the enjoyment value out of the battle scene.

The trouble with Raki is that it's actually kinda hard to hate him, but you still want to hate his "stupidity" nonetheless. I put stupidity in quotes, because he's actually not stupid for his age. He's a kid - he thinks like a kid, and acts like a kid. He's innocent and naive and emotional, all traits that are good for school drama, but bad on the battlefield. There is absolutely no place for him in a war zone, and indeed he constantly gets in the way.

That said, I understand his important role in the series. He is Clare's anchor to humanity. He provides Clare with another goal besides killing Priscilla. A light, so to speak, to save her from her dark self-destructive revenge. I've seen and read many stories that have as a theme "if your only goal in life is revenge, what will you do after it is fulfilled?", so I'm not surprised Claymore would include this theme as well.

I just wish he were less annoying. And personally, I find his voice extremely annoying when he gets all whiny.

Agreed. You're JEALOUS :P.

Raki isn't as stupid as he looks :).
1. He went after a chick - Clare.
2. He's perceptive, he saw that Clare is seriously injured, even Galk didn't notice it.
3. He wasn't deceived by a youma claiming to be claymore, when he heard that she was calling herself a "claymore".
4. He never gave up, but even at worst situations he fought.
5. He protected Clare from Sid (molesting :) ) and Ophelia.

Well, a cute girl said that, not to mention she fall into his arms, so he didn't think with his brain ;). Why should he think that people who let him go with them could be AB ? If they wanted to eat/hurt him they would do so.
Did I mention that You're jelous ? :P

It was quite irony the way they repeat the animations.

I say this episode is ... "Not quite"

It's probably all been mentioned before (haven't read the entire thread) but there were several things I didn't like in this episode. Most of it stems from what I've read in the manga I'm afraid, but some of the changes cause inconsistencies imo. For one thing, every claymore and their grandma can apparently use moves that look like the flash sword. Maybe not as powerful, but it's not like you can really see the difference. Then there's the fight with the turtle AO, iirc there was a lot of hacking at his head but they never managed to really hurt him - until his head was by itself in the air. Strange. I already figured they wanted to extend the fight to fill up the episode but this wasn't the perfect way to do it. Another thing with the turtle AO, in the manga he just caused their yoki level to go over the limit. In the anime this wasn't the case, and some bits of the fight didn't make as much sense to me because of that. They did put a nice take on it, but it just seemed a bit off to me. I'll have to rewatch to make sure though. And then there was Raki checking out the claymore swords, which kinda startled me (for a reason I can't divulge due to it being a manga spoiler). The fight with the spider AO was done nicely, although they did spoil Jean's surprise with the damn count.

6. He's got the most power house of a bitch taking a liking to him. Which if I hazard a guess, you try and come within 20 feet of him. You'll have your head rolling around in the dirt

9 - He inadvertantly has some of the hawtest 'oneesans' thanks to the Fab 4 group Clare's in.

Should gather together all the 'Raki-isims'.

And I suppose that the many who say that Raki was 'stupid' for not picking up the 'he smells good' comment and immediately proclaiming to the heaves that she was a AB. Would you REALLY say anything if an AB was holding you with both hands and staring 'lovingly' into your eyes? You'd just better hope that she's well-fed enough not to notice ya for a while until you can get away...... somehow.

That and he just landed one heck of a cute girl who (most importantly in his mind) doesn't mind that he had latched his hand onto her chest. So she's a little loopy in the head and can't keep an eye on her surroundings. She's still...pretty darn cute.

Yeah i agree, i am jeaolous of this small good-for-nothing kid Raki........

Also i hate his name and its meaning!

Why didn't his Yoma-brother killed him earlier?!

He always gets the lucky end for him.

Hope in the future he will become stronger, cause now he is absolutely annoying me.
