I should clarify: "what's released in English" refers to the official release by Viz, not to English translations of what's only been officially released in Japanese. Please re-read the first post of the thread.

Yeah, Viz's CLAYMORE is only at vol 7. Right when she's still fighting Ophelia I belive. So nothing past that.

Hey, has anybody else realized that the claymores resemble Morning Musume to a certain extent? Insanely large all-girl group, frequent sub-group shuffling, very fast turnover rate with periodical graduations, different talents and personalities...

There's also the set of inflexible rules which seem to have no exceptions:
Teresa killed a few human bandits and she got fired.
Kago Ai was caught smoking and she got fired.


Just give 'em a few months, I'll expect a video of Hare Hare Yukai featuring Clare, Miria, Deneve, and Helen.

Jip, as far as i know (afaik) this threat here, is for the Official English Manga. Published by Viz's.

What you read after Vol 7 are "fan made" translations, and should not posted here in this thread...

That's exactly what I've been thinking for the last month or so. D:

I just picked up Vol. 8 of Viz's translation from Barnes and Noble yesterday. The official release date is June 5 though.

You are one lucky guy. I'd like to remind you that until June 5th you can't post a word about it in this thread.

I wasn't going to. I just was saying that some stores release them early and that you can keep your eyes open for it.

Hopefully my local Walden will have it on or by the release date. If not I can get it ordered from there, and have it in a week or less.

Got volume 8 in the mail today. Perfect timing!

Not much in the way of answers for my earlier speculation, but did bring up some other interesting tidbits.

Spoiler for Ophelia:


Spoiler for The Organization:


Spoiler for Riful & Friends:


Spoiler for Priscilla:

Where did you get THAT from? Riful said there was only one girl Prissyface didn't hurt.

BTW, love the "I'm really in the mood for Mexican" line. :P

It's rather sad how they all have horrible pasts though. I wonder what Helen, Deneve, Galatea and Miria's pasts are like.

Yeah, I'm especially dying to know what happened to Helen as a child to make her develop a personality like that. I think she's one of those "Really shitty stuff happened to me so I'm going to act happy and lively to make up for it!" people. She could easily fit in the cast of One Piece, really. :P

Um.. Ok, I'm going to have to go home and read it again, but I'm pretty certain that in the last handful of pages in the book Riful specifically stated that not a single young girl was hurt by Priscilla, while she killed everyone else in town, and that it was almost like she couldn't even see them.

Oh, and a bit that I forgot about earlier: When Ophelia dies and her hair comes loose, she looks remarkably like Teresa.


cors8: I agree that that's most likely. On the surface it certainly appears that way. Still, now that the author opened the possibility of limb transference, there's always going to be that little niggling doubt in the back of my head, since it just jumped from Ophelia dying to 3 months later in another town.

Well consider this. The arm Clare cuts off is Ophelia's right arm. Since Clare already has Ilena's right arm, then it's pointless to attach Ophelia's. Also, we haven't been shown any special ability of Ophelia's that would require Clare to take her arm, unlike with Ilena.

After all, as shown in the previous volumes, Quicksword is more powerful than any of Ophelia's abilities.

Ok, here it is. Page 187:

Quote:
They say that in the towns she attacked, she completely destroyed everything.

Yet she never laid a hand on the young girls.

She's a strange one. Even though she tears out the guts of everyone else in the village...

She doesn't make a single wound on the young girls.

It's almost like...

She doesn't even notice the young girls at all.

It is possible that Viz mistranlated some of those lines, but who knows maybe the scanlators who translated it before hand got it wrong. :P
