On another note, how do you pronounce "Dauf" in English? I'm not a native speaker so I really have problems to imagine how it is supposed to sound

Well. there you have it then, if the source is reliable enough.

Yeah, i'd also inherently tend towards the "v", still it doesn't seem to hinder a few people to use it otherwise. No sweat, i'll just continue to read it ルヴル.

In Italian edition, it is spelled Luvr
probably his name is supposed to recall "Louvre" ?

That is really the most likely origin, the Katakana spellings are almost identical. "Luvr" looks like a good solution, not exactly the same spelling, but looks similar enough. But I suppose this reference is much easier to understand for a French or Italian translator ^^; Or of course, a Japanese one in this case (the translator of the Italian version is Rieko Fukuda, isn't she?)

Just like "Irene" whose name was changed to "Ilena", probably because the translator simply doesn't know the name "Irene"
The names in Claymore are really hard to "recognize", since they are taken from many different languages and countries. But at least, it doesn't seem that any of them are invented out of nowhere. So ... I still wonder what Riful is supposed to mean

Hehe, "a few people", you mean, almost everybody at least I really haven't seen anybody who spells his name with a "v", only Rubel, Rubul or even Ruburu. I would have tought, Anime Fans being the purists they are, would have realized this mistake really fast

Yes, you are right, she is Rieko Fukuda^^

Thanks for that information, so that would be one official source proving the similarity between these two words. Need to send an email to Viz's translator and tell him that he can't read Katakana

Sorry to go off-topic, but okay so Riful is going around awakening Claymores. Understandable. Also she's doing it via torture. Understandable too, given that no Claymore wants to awaken voluntarily.

My point is what incentive do you think Riful is going to offer the new Awaken, to make them wish to join her forces? Yeah she can threaten to kill them and between Dauf and her, that's not going to be a problem. But what's to keep an Awaken from going AWOL during a battle or even going to the other side. It's not like she could bribe them with money

Perhaps they will simply join her out of gratitude for helping them to Awaken.

Maybe she can convince them that if they run, she'll find them and kill them.

Picked up volume 9 of this today. Looks like we're building toward a climax.

It does rather look that way, but in an interview Yagi-sensei claimed that his story is going to run for 25 volumes.

I thought I would be disciplined enoguh to hold off reading the manga...but damn I went through volumes 10-12 in 2 hours last night and was late for work today.

One thng that also made me laugh was that I thought Riful was a chick...based on the drawing.

Really? I think the art of anime is way better than manga. In manga, they all look ugly. In anime, they are gorgeous.
