Probably some 30 to 20 ranked girls. Teresa was just suppose to let herself get stabbed by them according to what's-his-face's reaction. Phhft, yeah right.

It's too bad that no mere mortal man can ever be enough for a Claymore girl. XD Teresa...mmm

what's weird though is that there were several of them there to kill her. If her superiors were so sure she'd allow herself to be executed surely one Claymore should have been enough.

Also, from the way Clare acted in ep 4, a simple decapitation would have been far more efficient. Probably goes more along with how Clare killed Elena in ep 2, with the clean strike as they pass each other. Possibly some sort of formalized ritual that in some sense indicates the soon-to-be-dead still has a measure of respect from her peers, and should still be treated honorably, as a 'human'.

Plus, yeah, if a Claymore has gone far enough over the edge to have broken one of the primary tenets they're indoctrinated with, you probably want to have a little bit of backup, just in case they decide to go completely spuffy (and Teresa is the most powerful of the Claymores). While Teresa's reasons for killing are more about vengeful justice, if some other Claymore had decided to go serial-killer, they probably wouldn't have been as polite at the execution.

Don't compare this two things. The Black Card is another thing then somebody breaks the Iron Rules. With the Black Card the rules are not broken...

maybe it was a "just to be safe" kinda thing...yea as if any average claymore could take down teresa XD usually numbers works pretty well with single targets but that depends on the pray...boy i cant wait to see a royal rumble next ep @_@

Well, i have my suggestion about, why there are 4 Claymores.

You know the old Western Army executions?
execution with eye bandage and a wall with 5 Rifleman? 4 have so "piff paff" ammo and only 1 has a real ammo. Perhaps it's this kind of thing....


other explanation are not spoiler proved...

yeah, that was what I was trying to say with my previous post:
if they were not sure she would willingly submit then calling in claymores that were no match to Teresa was as good as commiting suicide.

Normally, to avoid being hunted by their kind claymores would opt not to kill humans, but when you are ordered to willingly accept death then running away and being hunted seem to be a better choice. Teresa just made the logical choice which surprisingly caught her handlers off guard. I can't help but think that not only are claymores considered tools by their masters/employers but also as mindless automatons who are incapable of individual thought or decisions.

Er no, it's the other way round

4 have real ammo, 1 has blanks.

I guess the "overwhelming odds to smother any resistance" is the best explanation

Hmm.. This has got me wondering about some stuff now, but to fully explore it I'm going to need to draw a bit from the manga. I'll try to work some of the thoughts out in the English manga thread.

superb episode, it was so heartwarming when Clare finally spoke and let Teresa know why she had followed her the whole time. They were basically 2 sides of the same coin. Clare saw her self in Teresa all the pain, sadness and loneliness, she had experienced so had Teresa It seems to me that Teresa was empty all this time she didnt really have a reason to live besides killing Yoma. Now she has someone who she wants to protect another human life. In a way protecting Clare gives Teresa back a part of her humanity. She was always saying go Clare live as a human.

To break Iron clad rules such as to never kill a human the emotions must be strong and emotion was the key to trigging her action. I think now Teresa is more dangerous than was before. I mean look at what she did to the bandits who hurt Clare anyone who tries to hurt Clare is in for a nasty end not to mention a bloody one.

Teresa being the top dog among Claremore's of course it would not be easy to defeat her. I was not surprised when she took out her execution squad, in the most beautiful of ways may i add. Inflicting enough damage to put them down but to kill them. That faint smile hides some deadly skills but with Clare the smile will no longer be front its real she has someone to smile to and about.

How things from now on is going to be hard to say. Claymore's 2 through 5 have been called and i assume thats in order of there skill. Teresa is good but how long can she hold of 4 of the most power Claymore's? Even if all of them are weaker than her sheer number alone put them in the same league as her. Cant wait for the next one let the hunt begin.

side note it seems to me that a close human to a Claymore makes that Claymore slows the process of becoming a Yoma. Also, gives them back a piece of their humanity they become more human and show emotions more almost like they are human again.


Favorite Quote from this episode.
Teresa: Tears can flow, from silver eyes as well

i just absolutely loved this episode and i cant get over how amazing this episode is. A perfect 10. does anyone know whether Teresa is main in claymore? I mean i definitely know Clare and Raki are supposedly main, any ideas where Teresa stands?

I too wouldn't mind if it were " The adventures of Clare and Teresa" lol

9/10 from me. Because I highly suspect that the best is yet to come.

Claymore is fast becoming the one anime I must watch this season. Shame I didn't pick up the manga when I first noticed it on the shelves ages ago, even though it did stir my interest at the time.

There are so many things to like about the general direction this series is going. I now understand better what NoSanninWa meant when he mentioned how this series has a very "human" dimension to it.

To me, a Claymore is a personification of a human who has fully released the monster within ("if you stare long into the abyss, the abyss stares back at you"), and allowed the darkest aspects of human nature to bubble to the surface, literally turning the individual into something inhuman in the process.

Teresa comes across as an individual who had nothing else to lose, and therefore did not mind becoming a monster to perhaps avenge some wrong committed to her, back when she was still fully human (I am now very curious to know what motivated humans like Clare and Teresa to become Claymores). In the process she becomes less than human, and ironically, it becomes her duty to protect the very humanity that she has lost (and evidently cares little for).

At yet, at the same time, it is clear that there is a fair amount of self-loathing. Teresa claimed that she didn't have any reason to live, other than to kill Yomas, but the way she said it, it seems to me that she didn't quite like the fact she didn't have a better reason to live.

That's......so very human. How strange for a half-human to feel the way a human would.

So yes, Clare is the humanising influence that proves to be Teresa's salvation (and probably her doom), in the same way that Raki probably would end up "saving" Clare as well.

Claymore underscores the main reason why I like Japanese stories so much more than Hollywood stories -- it never lets up on a fundamental understanding that killing is something monstrous, but at the same time, it challenges the viewer to think of how difficult it is to apply that fundamental rule in an imperfect world, where some humans are more despicable than demons.

Teresa is a imported person for Clare, thats for sure. Just keep watching, and you will regret that there is no a Godlike 11 in this poll here. I promise you that, trust me.

Scene 06 - Teresa and Clare

This was an absolutely beautiful and intense episode.

This is about bonding, and how the depth of an ingrained bond can overcome the prohibitions imposed by rules.

Spoiler:


This was bloody fun, and Teresa herself owns!!

The Tenets of Good Storytelling, by Madhouse Studios.

Not much to say about this ep that hasn't already been said, except: this is how you tell a story. The script itself was quite good, but the technical execution, from pacing to excellent directing, really allowed the story to shine. Obviously it's still too early to say for certain, but it looks like Madhouse have done it again. Shame on me for every doubting them.

Awesome episode! Oh man, Clare is too cute. Her voice is so adorable.

This episode contains so many touching scenes. Especially a scene when Clare tried to talk and exposed her feeling to Teresa. And a moment when Teresa furiously said to kill all of those bandits was priceless.

Even though, I have already read manga. I still felt very excite when MIB said that "Gather number two through number five. Have them go after Teresa's head." Can't wait for next episode. The fighting between the most strongest Claymore.

And for the execution scene, I just remember about an old era. The execution for the rebel leader was to be dismembered by 5 horses. Their body was tied with each horses. 1 head 2 arms and 2 legs. Try to imagine what happened when each horses ran at the same time in separate direction... And corpse was impaled on later.

In this case, Teresa broke the ironclad rule of the organization. No doubt that she was judged to be executed. May be the organization just wanted to prevent Claymore breaking this rule so they decided to use the brutal way of punishment. 5 Claymore, aimed at head, arms and legs. But Teresa was too good to be cut.

I agree, I had the same idea.
After all, that was supposed to be a full-fledged execution
