Have to admit while not reading the manga I had a different imagination of Flora when I first saw her. You see this character and when they start speaking all I can think is "what the heck?". Probably something I'll get used to but at that moment it seemed weird.

Nice to see the others back again after Clare's little adventure. Next episode should be great now that things are going. Poor Jean though she keeps getting into these crappy groups that get annihilated in a few moments. At least she's finally got some pretty good allies with Clare and the rest that should hold up. Seems she's got another opponent that's perfect for her ability.

As always nice with Eclipse getting the episode subbed so quickly.

I would really want to see Clare helping out with Flora as her Teammate. Flora will soon notice that she's powerful regardless for being the last rank number and the arm which belongs to Irene, but Clare will not tell her who belongs to, because if I remembered correctly, the part where Miria asked a question to Clare that her arm is different and who belongs was ... she did not want to mention the person's name, so it remains unknown to Miria and the rest of the army of Claymore.

Yeah, she does not want to be with the organization anymore, but she was yet forced to go to the war by this guy (I don't remember his name :/).

I am so excited for the next few weeks. I mean really excited.

I agree that Flora's voice wasn't what I expected. Although I really liked the AB's voices. The first one to transform was ok, but the other two were way more awesome sounding than I had imagined. Claymore is awesome.

lol at those who think Flora's voice is too loli -- having a high-pitched voice, whether loud or quiet, is not loli. for reference, Riful has a loli voice because she is loli. methinks some people need to meet more women in IRL. if anything, Flora's voice made me think of Mike Tyson: unexpectedly light comical voice from someone who has fearsome fighting skills.

i haven't seen the subs yet but i too was hoping for more wisecracking and funny expressions from Helen, at the sorting and in the cave. ah well. for being Part I for the next story arc, i thought the pacing was pretty good.

Well, I agree with what's already been said:
- Flora's voice is way too loli.
- We were totally shortchanged in the Helen antics department. No "There's always someone who has to act retarded" or "Ophelia? An Abyssal One? How did you survive?".
- Flora's intervention was ill timed, compared to the manga. Since only Deneve and Undine were acting up, there was no call for her to threaten everyone. They should have let the situation degenerate into classroom din. They even took away the part where Jean was about to comment on something (probably along the lines of "your Flashsword is actually faster"), gets called out, and apologizes. I know I'm nitpicking, but I was looking forward to that scene.


I also didn't like the fact they gave no reason for Raki going North like that. Did he mean to search the world from the top down or something?
Spoiler for In the manga,:


All in all, of all the scenes I was looking forward to, they did only two: the meeting between Clare, Jean, Helen and Deneve, and the Avengers Assem... Er, Miria calling her teams to face the three Awakened Beings. And I found the latter kinda lacking. Maybe a better music would have made it as impressive as it should have been?

Also, it kinda bugs me... The Claymores came from 20+ distant territories. How come they all arrived at roughly the same time?

TBH I'm it gets rather annoying people comparing the anime to the manga, be content -.-' it even got made into an animation. If you can do better, you try animating, adding sound sfx and that.
First this post now, is for all, not for the person i am quoting...

Okay, call me now an Old Gezzer, but...

We don't know. if the Scenes that was in the Manga and left out in the Anime, they could use this in a Flashback scene, in a future episode. What was often done in other Series...

We don't have the warranty that this will happen...
Spoiler for To be on the saver side...:


So please, stop writing "in the Manga there was that and there, in the Anime they left if out" and so on...

There is the Magic/Mahou of Flashbacks, always in Animes...for to fresh up the Viewers Minds.... How they call this technic "recaps episode?"


With no mean, to it....

what's wrong with comparing the original work to the anime? It's normal and will always happen if some book or comic gets turned into a movie etc.
People who loved the manga of course will be disappointed if the anime doesn't live up to their expectations and you can't simply be happy with what you get

If you like the anime as it is, that's great for you and I'm even envious. I would have loved to like it more.

Seska: I don't think anybody "spoiled" something from the manga that was left out in the anime which could possible be added in some flashback - or at least with spoiler tags, which should be fine.
And honestly, what has been left out this time will for sure not be added in a flashback, doesn't work

Nico: like Seska said, you will just have to read the manga. Anyway this is something you have to "see" and can't be explained ^^

Okay, sometimes i went overboard. But there is really no mean to it... I just don't want the Anime only viewer get their curiosity crushed. Thats all...

and again. there is really no mean to it..

In german (My Brain rejects to translate it):

[german]
Mit den Fetzen Manga wissen, was die anderen so einstreuen. "Aber im Manga war diese Szene total anders, usw"
Verführen wir ja grad die leute, die nur den Anime sehen wollen und Spoilers umgehen, dazu Spoilers zu lesen damit
sie rausfinden was derjenige meint...

Sowas wie Zuckerbrot und Peitsche...

Wissen ist macht, nicht wissen ist glücklicher...
[/german]

I don't mind comparing to manga and anime from Claymore as long as it covers almost everything.

I don't know if it's appropiate to post this for those who read the manga related to the first sentence, but

Didn't really like Flora's voice, sounded too young. Undine's voice seemed fine to me. Shame they left out bits of the conversation and especially Helen's reactions. Pace was ok, and I liked this episode overall. Plenty more action to come next week, although I have a feeling they'll stretch it out a bit.
