^Awww. ;P

Reading the spoilers it looks like Yagi is dragging the entire Raki spent the last seven years with Priscilla reveal.
I'm also wondering what's going to happen with Raki and Claire relationship. I'm guessing Raki has an unrealistically high expectations thanks to that kiss and seven years worth of fantasies while growing up While Claire admitted she only wants to meet Raki to see if he's safe (chapter 100, page 24). Raki will end up being disappointed still not all is lost he still has his loli harem and Deneve.

wondering why Clare's guts didn't gush out when she emerged from the destroyer. She dressed herself and picked up her sword at that time...

There is one line missing on p.9 so expect version 2 coming. There will probably be some other changes made later, just so you know.

Some things I've noticed after reading Gernot's translation (and re-reading the chapter):
  • I find it interesting that for some reason Clare was completely stunned once she got out of the blob and didn't exactly know what was going on. It means that either Clare has subconsciously felt him and decided to come out or that Priscilla let her out. If Clare would do this consciously she would know exactly what was going on and wouldn't be surprised to see Raki.
  • Ghosts are morons or deaf (at least Deneve and Helen). They knew that this mosquito's name is Priscilla since Clare told her name when they were standing next to her so Raki saying that name made it obvious that he knew her. For not realizing it they deserve a prize for retards (although I wouldn't be surprised if it would turn out that Dr. Deneve knew this but decided to stay quiet).
  • It's interesting that even defensive warriors can't regenerate that cut but can regenerate almost everything else.
  • As always Miria is super slow and Galatea had to take command (p. 14).
  • How did the blob miss all the vital spots? Does it have eyes or some other sensors? I think that's in the "Miria doing her phantom in the air" category. Unless Raki is not human and he instantly regenerated and said what he said to calm everyone down.
  • It's also interesting that Clare was exactly where he had his hands. The blob is huge so Raki was either super lucky or Clare has subconsciously moved towards him.
  • Before Galatea made her comment I immediately wondered how come Raki knew that Clare is in there?
  • Miria is not in the picture on the last page. Maybe Priscilla has killed her already :].
  • Clare has become sleeping beauty and Raki her prince *barf*
  • Since Priscilla left him he switched and went with plan B claiming that she has always been the only one .

I think Yagi justified all the grotesque references that had been made about the wound in the past. I, and possibly most readers, had thought it would be a scar or something like that, and couldn't imagine how a scar could be so revolting when the rest of the body is so perfect.

Really good chapter. Raki has become quite an impressive character. Most importantly, Clare is back! I was losing hope for this manga with her gone for so long.

Latest chapter finally showed us how scarring on bodies of claymores looks like and what do you know... it's really similar to how I figured it out years ago - http://walter-nest.deviantart.com/gallery/#/d2721in

I thought we saw some front shots of Claymores with armor damaged before. I don't recall having that wound visible, unless Yagi somehow just made sure all the damaged areas are not along the vertical line.

Anyways, I can see how that wound would make sleeping with a Claymore kind of difficult, considering it reaches ALL the way down. Unless you have that kind of fetish of course

The last time Raki and Claire saw each other was in chapter 34 that's nearly 100 chapters ago.

Bakaupdates lists that release in 2007.


Having that cut from the neck down and it can't be healed, is pretty grotesque. I mean just look at RL pictures of fresh stitched up wounds! ... i get woozy

I actually started reading this manga in 2007. Five years of following this on a monthly basis.

The wound in real life, would make anyone sick, but in this manga, Clare and the other girls looks great. I expect something else, maybe like a tiny face on the stomach (can't recall the movie).

Yea, sorry, that reveal of what a Claymore's front looks like was a big let down.

Right. I think Ryus needs to post the several hundred images from previous chapters which clearly did not show any stitches or gashes as Claymores had their clothes and armor ripped apart in battle.

Anyways, looks like there'll be another emotional outburst from Raki once he realizes that it really is Priscilla.

Lastly, it's good to see you back Claire. It's only been how many RL years?

I realize, after all the years we've been reading this manga, that memory can get fuzzy, but I could have sworn there have been strong insinuations that Claymores can, and do, have sex with humans. Fetish jokes aside, it seems some retcon is in order.

I don't know how others look at it, but is Raki going to try and get between Clare and Priscilla and get them to be friends....

An exaggeration, but like how most other stories play out for the drama in similar situations.

While I've always thought the ending of the anime was an abomination (I mentally cringe at how many times Claire said "Rawr, I'm going to kill you!" in the "original" ending), I've also always thought the spirit they were trying to convey with Raki/Prisc/Claire/Revenge/Redemption was very likely going to show up in the manga. That said, there is a sizable contingent of regulars from the old Claymore threads that seem convinced beyond doubt that the story of Claymore has nothing to do with that, as it wouldn't be grim/dark enough, and the discussions over whether we actually get the story or not that's being attempted to be told here has been...discussed to death I think.

I guess we're getting close to finding out, one way or another.
