My favorite part was Raki facing off against Ophelia so he could protect Clare. He sure got guts doing something like that, against a psyco claymore no less. Raki deserves a metal of courage for what he did.

Yeah, that was courageous of him but keep in mind he didn't really know she was a complete psycho. The adolescent kid had a crush on Clare and wouldn't accept someone putting her hands under her T-shirt

I think he may have been banking on the Claymores don't kill humans. Still showed some guts since there's nothing that says Claymores can't punch humans. I think my favorite scene would be when Helen first meets Jeane. That or any scene where Helen has an apple.

Lol! There was one part which the director of the anime included that wasn't in the manga. In all of Raki's curiousity of Clare's whereabouts during the campfire scene and his eventual supposition the she went to drop some cargo, commenting on the size.... of the cargo.

I have three favorite scenes I can think of, two of which are sort of "combined" into a feeling for me:

1.) The first was near the end of episode 6 where Teresa had just left Clare at the village where she (Clare) was about to live, and the bandits attacked, then Teresa returned, and she broke the rules of the Organization by killing humans which include the leader of the bandits and the one who was about to abuse/rape Clare. The scene after that where Teresa was supposed to be executed, however, yet again, she defies the Organization, probably because she had started to develop feelings for Clare, and then when a member of the Organization said, "You'll regret this, Teresa", she responds with "I won't. There's no way I will."

To me, this was very touching, how a Claymore such as Teresa -- a Claymore who was the best of her generation, and with being the best, usually comes some dedication, had managed to "soften up", and start to care for and become attached to Clare.

At the part where the bandit is dragging Clare away in the village and wickedly says "Yo. It's you. You forgot something here? I'll take care of this girl, don't fret. I'll make sure to give her lots of love, so don't worry. She's so cute when she screams and cries, calling, 'Teresa... Teresa...' and such", and then when Teresa widens her eyes open in shock, most viewers can tell that she is, in actuality, shocked, and then when she proceeds to instantly kill him, one can tell that she really does love Clare.

Then the scene right after, where Teresa and Clare are at the execution site, with Clare crying and Teresa about to be killed, instead of letting them execute her, she makes the decision (at the last moment?) to live on for Clare. To me, this absolutely confirmed Teresa's devotion and love for Clare, especially how she walks away with a defiant air.

Both of these parts made me cry. Sooo touching, IMO.


2.) + 3.) At the end of episode 8, where Priscilla had just partially awakened and killed Teresa, Clare is simply helpless against Priscilla, so helpless that Priscilla ignores her (I think?). Later, in episodes 25 and 26, where Clare partially awakens, I thought: "Wow, Clare had grown so much; she had grown from being a little, human girl whom Priscilla hadn't even bothered to attack/kill, to a semi-awakened being who was able to fight near on par to Priscilla fully awakened." What makes it even better, IMO, is because it was all for revenge for Teresa, and becoming a monster to fight a monster due to her love for Teresa ^^ and hate for Priscilla. I dunno, the anime makes it seem like she's doing it more out of hate for Priscilla, but that stems out of her love for Teresa... So maybe it's more for her love for Teresa? *shrugs*

When you take in the whole picture behind Clare becoming a Claymore, I think it makes a great, emotional story.

Quite a bit of growth, IMO.

Sorry for the long post. I just <3 Claymore.

1. "She taught me that tears can flow, even from Silver eyes"
2. Clare's youki reading against the first AB.
3. Irene's return.
4. Jean's restoration and the final fight against Dauf.
5. Raki not flinching when Isley swings his sword at him and Isley saying that apparently the kid isn't completely worthless :P [manga] (not really one of my favorites but whatever)
6. The awakening against Rigardo

One scene that really captivated me was when Raki and Clare split up during the time Ophelia was killing that one awakened. Clare and Raki kissing was so emotional, I felt the love and care they had for each other. They treasured their relationship and promised each other they would stay alive. Wow... that moment was really special.

... if I were to look at that scene... a master kissing her dog is closer to what I would imagine :P
Raki seems to kinda worship her, and Clare... not sure what she thinks of him, but how close can you be to someone basically inferior and 99% useless to you, except as a form of pity.

I'm not understanding you Zsych...

If there was no raki, we wouldn't see a soft side, a love side, to Clare. She would just be another woman under the organization killing off one youma after the other. Clare's life would be boring and with no meaning. Raki is able to bring out the another side of clare, the one that probably everyone likes (similar to Theresa caring for clare), and enriches clare's life in a way.

This is not one of the threads where it is acceptable to discuss Raki's place in the story vs just hating him. Please lets not drag this into a long off-topic fugue.

Teresa doesn't seem to have gotten a powerup from the dream itself though. Not that I wouldn't have appreciated Clare finding an inner link with Teresa somehow.

@Cipher: Keeping it short... don't think Raki made the difference to her that she did to Teresa. I agree though that without him or someone else to interact with, there are sides of her personality that we wouldn't have seen.

There's another scene that's worth about a million bucks.. I think ppl will agree with me on that one.
The official Miria introduction as "Phantom Miria" in the slashers, when the male AB commented on her speed; In the Anime it was just a glorious scene, no more no less. With that creepy, electronic "tee dam tee dam" sound and the close up on Miria's face. Awesome...! (drools on that moment)
