Why you fixed it, I know the fighting is very important, but this "something else" I believe will blow everyone's minds off.

This was not a good manga-lover's episode.

Don't cross the Line

Some joking:

Undine is a Man, that is cross dressing like a Claymore?

Compare DEVIL MAY CRY with CLAYMORE. Both of them are MADHOUSE's work.

If you have an eyes, you might notice to plain difference of them, even if the screen of CLAYMORE is toooooooooo dark.

btw, i really love CLAYMORE. peace.

One thing which really pissed me was that it repeated the scene from the end of previous episode. I'm curious why the producer decided to drop "that" scene. Repeating and extending this same scene again was a bad decision. IMO. Because the tension was already lost to previous episode.

I agree that Flora's voice was too young. She should lengthen her vocal chords a little.

The only seiyuu which crosses my mind that would have made for a satisfying voice to Flora that would be Yoshiko Sakakibara (The voice of Sir Integra Wingates Hellsing from the Hellsing anime).

That's the only choice that appears in my mind, that I could ever thought of.

I notice certain individual keeps voting 1 or 2 out of 10. If he finds many episodes so bad, so painful, then why he keeps watching????

Although on some occasions the animation or VA is not top note, overall I(and many others) find the anime is very good quality and enjoyable. I suppose that's why Claymore is popular.

Perhaps, turn into a Claymore change the Body, and the voice pitch?

Yep. I totally agree. Claymore is popular because of its brilliant story and plot device. It's never fail to surprise me. And it also contains many cool and attractive character. The monster design is unique and beyond awesome too. It doesn't have filler and ridiculous fanservice. No silly power up and no need for heroic deed. Just live with sword and die with sword. Everything has a price to pay. It's reasonable in its own way. That's why I really love this series so much.

Just my honest opinion.

I liked this one, but they should of focused more on those silly Helen expressions she showed in the manga.

SOrry only 9/10 because of the voice of Flora.........

Just laughed, when i heard Flora. I mean wtf? It doesn't fit at all.

But overall a great epsiode again.

I love the pace of this anime.

But at this rate we will have only 23/24 episodes or we have a bad cliffhanger-ending.

Flora's voice will have many enemies I guess. It was really not what I expected, but I didn't think it was a complete miss-fit either ... simply really different from what I expected (was more like Mamiko Noto in my head).
Undine sounds good though

As always I prefer the manga over the anime, but that's just me. The anime really lacks impact, f.ex. Flora's windcutter scene ... she should have done it right away when Undine and the others where actually still talking instead of first showing Miria walking down the stairs. Kinda took away the "wow" effect of her attack. But well, that's my personal impression.

I also missed Helen's faces, it made her so much more likeable, but maybe didn't fit the dark mood.

I didn't expect this coming from Flora's voice. I mean, she looks confident and stronger, but come on, her voice is a bit too young for her.

At any rate, Udine is kinda... well I don't know...makes me remind Lloyd from Tales of Symphonia using two swords and the same personality. I find it funny for some reason.

Maybe you should concentrate less on stereotypes and more simply on the fact that a cheaper series looks cheaper.
You can be perfetly sure that spending the same money the episode cost in japan would have made a much worse impression (or people would outsource from there...)

Strawberry Panic, Black Lagoon, Chobits, DMC, Claymore are all created by Madhouse and they always do an excellent work when it comes to storylines and the animation similiar as those creators from manga.
