What you said is true in more than 1 way. If they don't show a certain scene next episode before the intro I'll let you know. There's about 2 more pages of manga after Clare holds Teresa's head before the Slayers Arc starts which is next ep.

The slayers arc is favorite as of yet. It's where Clare becomes bad @ss.

Another good thing about the Slayers arc is that it

Spoiler:
Gets rid of Raki and brings Miria, Helen and Denevre in as the main side characters

I wouldn't say badass.... more like on the path to becomming one.

If they ever make a second series of Claymore it could be 5+ years off 1 chapter per month is only 2 volumes of manga per year. The first 8 eps alone are around 4.5 volumes worth of manga.

They nailed Helen and Deneve's voices imo, not sold on Miria yet but the next ep could do that. Definately prefer the opening scene to be right where it is instead of at the end of 8.

With the animation during the Miria/CLare practise fight hopefully they have plenty of budget left in the tank.

Its "loosely" reminds me of Berserk and The God hand plot. I want to download the MANGA, but its hard to find

Man, ya'll beating me to the punch!! Episode 9 was very interesting, although I didn't like how everyone was beating down on Clare. It's hard to imagine that she's the weakest Claymore out of the 47 in the organization. I mean, she does have Teresa's blood inside of her, so that should count for something. Also, I realize why Clare took in Raki...because he reminded her of her younger self when she was with Teresa. The similarities are pretty striking.

Another interesting thing is the talk about the Awakened Beings. Seems that Priscilla is the most powerful one at the moment. Can't wait till Clare takes her head!!! It will be awile since she's the "weakest" Claymore. What a load of crap. Well, it seems like the 4 Claymores got their hands full fighting a male Awakened Being. Can't wait to see the fight!!

The Clare we saw in the first four episodes really is weak, notice how often she had to use 10%, 30% and 50% of her power just to kill normal Yoma. Remember how easily the Teresa era top ranked Claymores slaughtered numerous Yoma, Priscila took out a shitload of Yoma and Noel didn't even notice even though she was close by. The manga page of Noel looking at the Yoma killed by Priscilla has significantly more Yoma in it.

Did you notice in episode 9 how easily Clare dispatched numerous Yoma? Never fear it's explained next episode though I'm sure you can guess what triggered her rise in power since you watched it already.

I actually don't mind the way they power up of characters in Claymore, compared to say Chad from Bleach in the latest manga arc which just makes me groan with how half assed it is.

Helen's hilarious btw, she's the only claymore with a personality!

I see....What irritated me a little though was how they were going on and on and on about how weak Clare was. I'm like, I get the point already! It was borderline annoying. They were talking big in the beginning, but now they're scared sh!tless of the Male Awakened Being. I'm definately looking forward to see how those two will do.

You have to think though. Clare is like a Gohan. Teresa was already cut 1/2, which makes her 1/4. So shes gonna be weak, but she probably has dragonball syndrome. Gohan was said to have the "potential" to be the strongest being in the universe, but we all know he was a fruit. Being Clare is the main character.... You see what I'm getting at, I feel like I'm rambling...

Yeah since she is only 1/4 Yoma, her Yoki reading is vastly lower to every other Claymore. She also had to use a lot of Yoki to kill normal Yoma in the first four episodes which nearly made her awaken.

So in other words she has to fight twice as hard to keep up with the other Claymores that are above her? Hmm....I see where this is going now. I'm just wondering though, just how strong she will become before she takes on Priscilla? Will she have to become an "Awakened Being" to do so? It seems that Priscilla is heavily feared, even among the Awakened Beings, so just how long will it take for Clare to power up to Priscilla's level?

Well from what I reead so far, (Spoiler, not a bad one though) she's an Elite, however still not Pricilla's level. Being Teresa was by all rights the strongest #1 of all time, I'm sure her power will surface at sometime. Not to mention that she has a "PROSTHETIC" limb.
