Ok, IMO, Flora's voice hasn't fitted well... like was said, it's just too young...
It never crossed my mind that Flora's voice would be close to that(totally on the contrary, I always had imagined a mature voice for Flora), and I think Flora's fans won't like very much either.

Also, the quality dropped a little again. I would love if all Claymore's episodes had a similar or better quality like on the episodes 13 and 14, but, unfortunately, for some reason (if the main animator is not in vacation, maybe they are saving the money for the grand finale) the quality has to drop down...

Spoiler for manga:

Nevertheless, it was a good episode, I give it an 8 after all.

the episode wasn't too bad ^^. i wish they gave Flora a more mature voice at least.. it's not as painful as some voice actings i've heard, but it could be better.

I'm also a little disappointed with the video quality in this episode and Flora's voice. I was picturing a clear, mature voice and got something else. Undine's voice was ok though. Those of you who are interested in Undine should watch the next episode.

Episode 19 will be good but I figure that ep 20 is the one I am waiting for though

I have a bad feeling about this.....all these claymores mean most likely a lot of them will die , I really don't see how a campaign against one of the three Prime Evil...I meant Abyssal one will have no casualty, lol.

Let's see how many of them will survive, I am betting the hero's group might just pull off with some major injuries. So I predict Clare, Helen, Deneve, Jean, and Miria live, and the rest will all die

Well if they do die, they go down fighting. Surely they prefer it that way.

I must say that I didn't expect Flora to sound almost like a loli. Felt like a miscast for me.

This episode will create ALOT of comparisons to the manga again, even though this is so unfair to the anime ^_^;

Minus: They've been removing the humorous parts (especially most of Helen's antics and her "funny faces")... I really regret this, though I guess I can understand that they didn't want to break the dark mood.

Plus: Again, lots of minor inconsistencies removed (e.g. Miria greeting the rest of the Fab Four while assuming command in front of your troops - you don't do that). The animation also helped deciphering some battle scenes which had unclear panels in the manga.

As usual, good setup episode. 8 from me.

Oh, and even though Flora's voice was a bit of a surprise, I got used to her quickly, and I don't consider it inappropriate at all. Rather interesting. The comparison to slurry-slowly-speaking Isumi from Hayate no Gotoku is a bit unfair. She's speaking concisely and quickly-aware here

But Flora is #8, second in command. I expect a stronger, more mature, leader type voice. Especially no other claymore has such a high pitch voice, when Flora opens her mouth.........sounds weird. Miss Second in Command

Flora sounds more like a computer or android voice to me.

Flora sounds fine to me, even the famous General Patton have a squeaky voice despite his blood curdling speeches.

So did not mean if you a killer or commander, you have to sound like one.

Well, I guess if you can think that way then it's ok to you even when Riful sounds like Rubel .

Yeah, it's regrettable that Helen's precious reactions were taken out. This goes against all moral standards I can come up with!

Flora's VA sounds like Miyuki Sawashiro. Did anybody catch the credits?

Hmm..must say a bit dissappointing. Helen's humor was definitely not shown half as well in the manga. The other major point they lost out i felt was the Windcutter move of Flora. Simply lacked the impact. The scene could have been better. Two things i was really lookin forward to, and two things that MADHOUSE dissappointed me on.

As for Flora's VA..i think i really like it..but she doesnt look as beautiful as in the manga. She still has the bit of a scary look whereas she looks like a real doll in the manga. The first 7 for this series from me mainly because of the above shortcomings

Well...unfortunately, many part of CLAYMORE is Korean subcontract work.... see end roll... I have no idea why they did the stupid decision like this... though I don't think they had budget problems.

Errr......subcontracting to Koreans or Chinese animators is measure of cost cutting and budget. It is not stupid decision since they in the business to make money. Having a Japanese animators did not guarantee better quality.

I've just watched the RAW ep.
had to say, Flora's voice was rather annoying/irritating..didnt suit how her character looked like, it was more like a 8 year olds voice.
As for Undine i thought it MAYBE would've been much better if they had a male VA to voice as a female character, only if the VA can do a female voice with a man tone.
I wont be rating this episode yet, since i didnt understand much from the RAW, I'll vote once i get the subbed version.

Well about Flora, I couldnīt stop laughing cause she reminded me about that Pirate from the Caribbean where he has another one to talk for him cause he has this little voice..

Although i cannot describe the sheer awesomeness of the fights in this episode. Fear Isley Army
