I've felt for a long time that most shounen fighting shows are based on wuxia templates. As an extension of that, pretty much any show with some sort of spiritual energy is similar to the mythical depictions of chi.


Off-topic:

That's a great read. I'd like to point out that many anime also remove the parents (predominantly the mother) so that the responsibility has to be bourne by the protagonists.

Teresa was the 77th class. That makes 76 generations full of 0-digit that could possibly became awakened beings (and some of them male AB). And after Teresa may also be some new ones from the top five. But it's still hard to think in anything more powerfull. :P
If i'm not mistake, that M.I.B. back in episode 05 said Teresa was the 178th warrior created by the Organization. If they really created 47 warriors in every class, Teresa would have a number a lot bigger.

Most likely, they create a new class of a few Claymores from times to times, as substitutes of warriors already dead or Awaked. That means in a group of 47 Claymores, we can see warriors from different classes - newcomers and veterans - working together.

I would say that every class has it A+ students, B students, C students and it D- student. The one that are A student generally land the top 10 rank of Claymore. Some one like Clare who is consider a D student land in the bottom. They only replace rank if any die during a fight with AB or Yoma. I think most send their Black Letter before they turn to AB. Only a few who lose them self in battle are the one who turn AB which I would guess is rare but not uncommon situation for it to happen. Even Teresa class would have it share of C and D student so not all are crazy powerful.

I disagree with you all.

Actually, since there are nine single digit, even if each one only kills one Awakened Being a year, that still leaves nine Claymores awakening every year just to keep the numbers stable.

When one looks at the numbers that way it seems that the Organization is much more troublesome than the youma that they fight.

It somehow reminds me of antivirus software. I suppose the organization should be something more than just a tool to make money, it must go anywhere.

But look at the number of Yoma there are! Just Claire has killed more than 20 since the start of the series in one of 47 regions. Plus Claire being the weakest of Claymore, her region could be the least infected.

So a few dozen AB around in exchange for thousand of Yoma killed isn't such a bad tradeoff
