Don't see why they would leave a perfectly good body to just rot. Doesn't seem very Dae. Assuming he is into keeping passed claymore bodys in good condition. Soo they used the whole of her head to make Clare a claymore? Could defence claymores regrow their heads? As so far we only seen regrow/attachment of limbs.

For a monthly, Claymore sure doesn't have a lot of pages...

Jump Square has reduced the page count of most of their manga, I believe

Anyway, as interesting as the battle is, we all know the conclusion... they introduced Raciella and Riful II just to be fodder for Priscilla is pretty pointless.

Usually, when a Jump manga reaches the climax towards its last chapter the last chapter serializations get lots of pages than for average chapters.

Raws out. Just when you thought things couldn't get worse, they do. Like, really bad.

They really going out of their way now to make Prisicilla invincible... this doesn't even make sense. Just get this shit over with, I have seen enough of Priscilla's ugly smug.

They really don't have to go out of their way, it was established a while back that Priscilla is effectively invincible due to her limit-less Yoki.

Yeah it was well known she's the last villain, but to make her 'infect' Cassandra from a distance and take over the body, that's kind of effed up.

To be fair, blame Dae for this mess. He knew exactly what was happening with that arm. This begs the question though, Raki had that arm in him too, for quite a while....why wasn't he affected? Perhaps this is what was meant by "he could be an ever greater blade against her?"

I can't see these fights lasting much longer. Priscilla is just too ridiculous at this point. Either everyone dies, or one or all of our heroes gets a huge power boost, pronto.

I think it is time for Clare to shine. Otherwise, people might forget that she is the protagonist.

I still think he meant her... feelings toward him

She has feelings? Except for her period of mental regression, she's pretty much been a bitch the entire story. It's to the point where I actually want Teresa to appear out of nowhere, kill her, and get the damn story over with.

Seriously, we've known since the flashback that this was the wall, the big obstacle in the story for Clare, the tragic heroine. We've gotten special chapters, flashbacks, side stories, and lots of talk about how amazingly powerful Priscilla is. It's like the author keeps dumping power ups at her, as if simply being the most powerful thing in the story wasn't enough. Oh she has super regeneration. Now she's got amazing tactical skills. Now she can one shot Awakened beings, and even literally chew them up and spit them out! Oh, and she can also take over other beings and make clones of herself! Plus she can tap dance!

I really wonder what exactly the point is in all of this. Dae talks her up like she's the ultimate creature, and I, an audience member, is going "duh, we knew this shit years ago, tell us something we don't know." No one in the story can touch her. No one. Not the Ghosts, not Clare, not any of these Awakened, and Riful Jr. is going to get smoked too. So what, does she just kill everyone and the credits roll? Does Raki give some amazingly touching speech and she decides not to kill anymore because fuck, it's just so easy and boring?

And what about Clare? Must be brutal to spend your entire life training, fighting for your life, literally losing limbs and powering up only to realize that your object of revenge will never die at your weak hands. Even if Clare awakened fully she'd just be fodder. The best she could do even when merged with the Destroyer was to contain them all in a blob!

When the combined might of every other powerful character in the story cannot defeat the "big bad" no matter what, one has to wonder what the purpose is in powering this big bad up even further. It feels pointless and frustrating that all of these months go by and the plot progression feels so minor, and honestly it's just starting to drag on way too much.

So all this bitching just for me to say get to the damn point, Yagi.

Pretty much, the story hasn't really progressed much in the past year, which is just sad.

That "period" of mental progression was well over 7 years in length, and it was long enough that Priscilla would go out of her way to save Raki's life despite acting aloof about it.

Not to mention we still don't have her motivation for never killing little girls.


-----

Not progressing much in the past year?

We have had the Organization destroyed, Clare and Priscilla revived, Raki and Clare reunited, and what is quite likely the final battle of this manga well underway.
For 12 chapters of a monthly manga, that is fairly significant.

Compare that:
Berserk, who hasn't even gotten off that damn boat in 2 years
Rosario Vampire; who having been fighting through that fortress for almost 2 years now.

I agree with you. A lot of things have been happening lately. However that might not be a good thing. Claymore have been jumping from one battle to another and the characters weren't given enough room to breathe.

Maybe with the talk that the ultimate power in the warriors come from them hating the yoma flesh within them, that it might eventually lead the key for victory for Claire. We all know by now that Claire hates no one more than she hates Priscilla. What if she is able to take in Priscilla's flesh? Her hatred might overcome Priscilla's take over, and in turn, Claire gets a huge power-up. Besides, I think the Teresa in Claire wil also help prevent a Priscilla take over.
