They actually look more realistic than as claymores than Yagi's claymores. Consider that Undine was considered a muscle "freak" when she had guns like those, and yet muscles like that, not like Miria's or claire's, would be necessary to swing claymores.

Of course, this being fantasy, a certain amount of realism naturally gets ditched. The bottom girl should probably have been Yagi's model for all claymore girls. Attractive and muscular, and with appropriately short hair.

well, if you ask me, the jury is still out on "attractive"

she's got a nice face, but it's exactely those "steroid-repositories" that rather disqualify her imho

You don't find her attractive?

She definitely has a charm to her. Revan is right; in a more realistic setting, Claymores would probably all look something like that, like Army girls; muscular and beautiful.

of course revan is right ! ( never question the board's resident sith lords authority )

but I just stated my subjective, personal preferences, and while I don't mind muscles, or "army girls" I do mind "excessive muscles"
I like well trained women if they still look natural. and that one, maaan what she did (imho) is the carnal sin she has such a beautiful, I mean reeeaaaallly beautiful, natural face, and than desecrating it with that freak of a body ...
(I know there's much worse when it comes to body builders, ... but still) to me it looks to artificial

The only thing I fault her on is the veins popping out as much as they do. If her veins weren't like that, I bet you'd find her much more attractive. Veins by the way haegar (und immer-and always) vary by the girl/guy. My veins don't stick out much...my brother's do.

This particular lady just suffers from having the wrong kind of veins to truly pull off this look 100%. I'd rather date a girl that was in shape and motivated to work out than one who sat on her butt all day and hoped her larger sugar melons made up for her thicker build.

Yes, they do. I'm pretty skinny all things considered, but my veins are quite noticeable. They tend to stick out on hot days especially

Now you're being mean towards Undine? Honestly haeger!

We already have an Undine. It's somewhere, but Dweller posted the picture of her and she fits perfectly

haegar, I do believe the proper German expression is, "Verdammt ist es heiss hier!" ("Damn is it hot here!").

She actually would be a better Undine than Undine. If she lost the veins (Quick haegar, Shiek, somebody photoshop her veins off!), we'd have a new top candidate to "sex up" the role of a live-action Undine. Just lengthen the hair via hair extensions and bleach it and bam!

As German guys liked to say after looking over the nudie magazines, "Geil" ("Hot"). Of course, after I'd figured out how to look German (tighter jeans, European style shoes plus black socks) they started making all these comments to me. Thankfully I knew enough German and common sense to keep out of those conversations without a problem. After all, there was usually some 40-year something mom across the checkout counter at "Rewe Supermarkt" whenever these situations happened.

P.S.-spelling tip: beaUtiful

I know, I know... just imagine you're writing in French. We have a joke for "English" words like this in the states, "There's no "French" word for entrepreneur". Think about it!

@ Shiek- better post it again or tell me what page to find it on then...

Found it again, not sure why it was so hard to find again



Think it was because she's a big woman that made me think of Undine, she's got
a sense of masculinity off of her.

I think it's because of her jaw. It is rather square for a girl, which gives her a tough look. Of course, they'd have to digitally edit her photos in order to pull off a "slim" Undine image you know.

So you like her then? Right now, I think she's the best Undine there is

She certainly does look the part. Now the challenging part comes in...finding a European girl whose hair can be braided as well as Renee's! I mean, to poke some fun at Yagi, it just seems amazing that Renee's hair remains so perfect, despite everything she's been through.

I had no idea becoming part yoma did wonders for your hair!

European? Aww, come on, why can't she be an African-American? or at least someone who's not caucasian?

Yes, it will look weird seeing her with blonde hair, but call it stereotypical, but I do think he at least had someone non-caucasian in mind when making Renee, if the name and hairdo is supposed to mean anything.

When I look at Renee, I see a girl from New Orleans.

Hmmm.....Never thought of that, but I think you're right. We know their hair bleaches into a white-blonde sort of color and their eyes are silver, but their skin color I always assumed was the same.

But your right, Claymores probably have a fairer(paler) skin color, which also reverts back to normal when they awaken.

At my school, there's a white hippie girl with braided hairdo sort of looks like Renee hairdo working at the bike station. Whenever I see her, she reminds me of Renee :P

Uh, Shiek, there's a very conventional answer to this. It's because African-Americans, let alone any American, does not exist in the Yagi universe of Claymore. Plus we've only seen people of caucasian skin color in the manga so far and few people associate Africans with medieval life.
