Volume 9 Chapter 50 (page 127) - Volume 10 Chapter 52

This chapter and EP 18 end at the same point.

how could you forget Lafeil and Jinto from Crest/Banner of the Stars. Thats my favorite couple

Agreed!

What Teresa lost after the organization turned her into a Claymore were her tears, but Clare gave them back to Teresa.

What Clare lost after Priscilla killed Teresa was her innocent smile, so maybe when the long trek and the full story concludes then Raki will bring to Clare her smile back.

As much as I love and adore Ophelia, I think Clare would have been less bloodthirsty even if she hadn't come across Raki. She would perhaps have been as vengeful as Ophelia, but I don't believe she would have let that hatred turn her into a creature longing for battle, thoroughly enjoying inflicting pain upon others. Clare wants vengeance, above all things, but she doesn't seem to revel in random violence like Ophelia does. I do think Raki brought out much good in her, but I think we're giving Clare too little credit by saying she'd be a monster otherwise.

Heheh... sorry! Actually, i also forgot Kenta and Karin from KARIN-BLOOD GIVING VAMPIRE and Shiki and Arcueid from TSUKIHIME, too.

Like i said, there's many strange couples out there. So i don't know what's so wrong with Clare and Raki become a couple someday.

Maybe, but if that happens - that is, no Raki in the story - then Clare would never find someone out of the organization or the other hybrids to trust. Hardly she would find other humans to treat her with respect and friendship, instead fear. And probably she would never find other thing in her life besides the revenge.

I think the poor girl already had pain, sadness and loneliness enough. Give her at least a little friend!

Clare was compassionate before she ever met Raki. As Raki would be the first to point out.

Maybe, but she would have no way to show it to the audience. Raki is her Morality Pet.

Well, she'd have saved those soldiers in Rabona even without Raki. (Of course, without him, she might not have been given the mission.)

Not only that. It was Raki who kept saying to those guards how much gentle and pure hearted she was. That helped to trust her a little... that and the punch he gave in the face of that stupid Galk's partner too. (i know i loved that!)

And without him to defend her when they went to their bedroom in episode 3, she would be arrested.

Don't forget when Clare was about to leave with the Miria team to hunt for the Awakened in the Slashers arc, that Raki was too concerned for her safety, and she teasingly punched him gently on the forehead to make him not to worry that much.

When she gives Raki her "Money", and he picks only some of them out....

Looks like. That's an error, though.

Maybe we should have a thread where errors of symbols can be listed.
