It could be. It depends on what an individual prioritises.

1. The Assault on Pieta - I really loved Clare's battle against Rigardo. She wanted him dead so much after killing her friends that she actually succeeded in killing him.
2. Teresa of the Faint Smile - I found Clare's time with Teresa to be very cute
3. Genesis of War - I like how the seven survivors teamed up and rescued Galatea and the town of Rabona

The scene that got me irrevocably hooked on Claymore

the moment when Teresa realizes that Clare's "need for attention" is actually concern and an attempt to offer comfort and compassion. Yagi's ability to so acutely portray and capture this key moment in such a captivating fashion still boggles me to this day. This is by no means the first or last such moment, but definitely the first to affect me enough to bring actual tears to my own eyes! It was incredible to be drawn in to the story to such a degree - to actually share the tears of the character. Words alone fail miserably at describing the overall sensation - so I apologize if this attempted explanation fails to express my awe for Yagi's talent.

1. The death of Elena, Clare's only friend during her early Claymore years.
2. The moment Clare spoke and Teresa finally understood Clare's motives.
3. Ilena/Irene's recount of "that" day and what Clare gave to Teresa.
4. The death of Ophelia. Like all Claymore, she's a tragic character.
5. Jean's death while saving Clare from awakening.

Claymore has a lot of action but at its core, the story tugs at your heart. Probably because most can relate in part or in whole to the events that Yagi portrays in this story. It's more cerebral than how it may outwardly first appear.

I think I've posted before I'm not so sure..I'm like Betty White when it comes down to these things except she doesn't forget half as much as I do.

There are numerous favorites but I recently watched the anime again for the hundred time (feels like it) and I was moved when Irene smiled when Clare attach Irene arm to her body. That women had never smiled in the anime until she saw Clare attach her arm.

The Clare/Teresa moment of course when she finally understood that Clare understood that her pain.

There so many from Jean to Alicia/Beth to Riful/Dauf and Miria and Galatea...so so many
I have to say I love all the mother figures in the anime(Teresa, Clare although she seemed like a big sister to Raki, Miria, Irene, and Galatea)...I have no one favorite.

The Org is definitely evil. A person can be heartless without neccesarily taking pleasure in it.

Anyway...

Spoiler for Japanese manga, some anyway:

love it when easley is being munched on by the so called "abyss hunters/eaters".. still cool and composed and surprisingly affectionate to his "adopted family" members.. more like a hen that has already guided her chicks to adulthood. resigned to the fact that he is doomed but there is this contentment with his family. well, one cannot deny that this developed relationship has weakened his power drastically since he has been eating guts at bare minimum and perhaps has grown a heart somewhere.
if i might add, the real shocker was when the "old" powerhouse north, west & south has been toppled as i've been expecting claire's team to be the cause, which was not!

My Favorite hands down was pricilla's awakening, after she kills teresa. It was almost heartbreaking that she pushed herself so hard and her human side left only enough memories about her life to torment her that she awakened.

Beautiful

I watched a few beginning episodes of Claymore. The episodes where the boy first got saved and then started traveling with her, but it's honestly a bit too gory for me. Unless it has a good story, if it has a good story to match the blood, then it would be pretty good. I hate anime's such as Devil May Cray cough cough, that have a bunch of blood and gore, but they don't really have a great story to match. I don't know, I just love animes with a lot of action, but great stories have to be there or it's not point.

I have to say one of my favorite scenes was this one.



Here is where Teresa slays the true villain of Claymore. He who set the forces in motion. One day he will return...okay probably not.

That is the MSY of the whole series right there. Most successful Yoma.

-He got killed by possibly the strongest Claymore ever.
-United Clare and Teresa.
-Awakened Priscilla.
-Saved the the Ghosts to be by having Clare partially awaken and kill Rigardo.
-Caused Isley to go South.
-Created the Destroyer.

And now look, he's causing an attack on the organization. lol

Although I think he's a scumbag for abusing Clare...which is why I like that scene of him getting chopped in half. I wouldn't be surprised if he came out in the last chapter as the final boss. Just look at that quote. "Eh?" He clearly was not impressed by Teresa and suppressed his yoki to levels she couldn't even sense. He's still out there I tell ya.
