It still seems far-fetched that Clare doesn't mind confirming Flora's suspicions yet won't tell Miria at all, especially when they decided to cut the bonding moments between Clare and Flora.

I still don't believe that Miria, with all her research, wouldn't have a clue about past Claymores while Flora does and guesses correctly.

Maybe Clare thought that since Flora already knew so much that it was useless to denied it. And it's possible that Miria knew but since Clare didn't want to say it that Miria decided not to pry. Or.....PLOT HOLE!!!!!!!

That's why I don't like alter plot, there're gonna be bugs everywhere.

Is just me or Raki is becoming more and more a multi-class character?

So far, he is a Cooker, a Youma-bait, a living Garbage-can, a Claymore-boytoy, a Swordman-in-training, and now an Awaked-One-Pet!

What he will become next? Any ideas?

I'm thinking the anime starts to deviate a lot from manga, is Madhouse planning a second season with story independent from manga, smell fishy

It's going to be a pain to wait for next week's episode. I'm sure Flora and Clare will battle together for a bit longer. I don't know why Isely is teaching Raki. I'm guessing he can see the potential he would make as a Claymore. Still baffled...

it could be that while Miria has breadth of knowledge about claymores and the organization, Flora has very specific historical knowledge about Irena while she developed her own special Windcutter attack. "who else had a fast attack sword and is my technique faster than theirs?" seems like a natural question to ask.

sadly not deviating so much as restructuring. i'm thinking Madhouse is planning a single season with a satisfying conclusion, yet open to a second season... in 3 or 4 more years once the mangaka finishes writing it

i gave this episode an 8 for restructuring (i liked what they did) but lack of battles makes me sad.

It not so much the style quick sword or flash sword than that fact Flora knew Clare had Irena arm. Having never met Clare before to know that it was not Clare arm is a bit fishy. Miria would tell there was difference since she knew Clare before Clare got the upgrade. Miria would be able tell there was difference easy but for Flora who only know Clare for few hours and able to figure out that arms is not hers and able to conclude that is Irena is very fishy.

Oh well, as I said before, Madhouse will end the anime with anime unique arc as they did with Gunslinger Girl back in 2003. And they can do it well with Gunslinger Girl anime hence I am not so perturbed with Claymore possibility of different story ending. Not surprisingly my view is not popular with fans here.

Look, if the anime is not satisfying, there is always manga to continue the desired arc. I am sure Madhouse production team has their reasoning to do what they do. They seen Berserk and they concluded it is not the way to end an anime, or horror once known as Kare Kano . I would prefer there is an ending unlike Kare Kano which like completely stopped halfway.

Personally, unless they get shitloads of money like Ghost in the Shell Stand Alone Complex, there will be no Season 2 in near future.

I still read the manga or I will still do a marathon on anime one fine day. It did not matter to me if the anime deviates from manga or not. The anime so far is good and the manga is also excellent.

Entertainment is entertainment, so is anime once known as Claymore.

Isley said himself... Priscilla needs a friend.

Probably he want to keep Raki close because of Priscilla. For some reason she likes him ( not as favorite dish, mind you ), so it's a way to keep her happy.

But now comes the question: Why Isley want to keep Priscilla happy? Is Isley really worried about Priscilla's happiness or he is using Raki as a way to keep her under control?

We already know from the Teresa's arc (Sob... sob... Teresaaaa... ) Priscilla is not the most brilliant person in the world. Even as an A.O., she could be used as a tool for someone smarter than her. What if Isley is using her power to gain control over the world?

And no, i didn't read the manga. Just my speculations.

Really? I didn't hear any mention of the AO of the South having a husband/wife. The only concrete lovers relationship we have so far is Riful and Dauf.

Good is your mention about Gunslinger Girl, I remember to cry in that end, but I dont know if it is different from mangá. Thank you.

I hope of a great end or a second and independent season make me happy.
