they changed their directory structure, I suppose. and that site isn't japanese, it's chinese "raws." which I suppose aren't raws, they're chinese translations.
anyhow, since I can read chinese.. I'm set till vol 9. was reading vol 7 at B&N just a few minutes ago. the site also doesn't seem to be friendly w/ firefox, so you'll have to use IE to view the pages.
the other link to the raws don't seem to be working, but there's plenty of raw groups so if you want claymore raws, it shouldn't be impossible to find.
either way, waiting for a language you can read sucks. but that's the nature of things.
I hope some group besides manga-sketchbook would pick this manga up coz i really got hooked on reading the manga (which i just finished only up to vol. 6) after i have finished watching episode one of the claymore tv.
Just finished reading Claymore Volume 7 at Barnes and Nobles and it was an entertaining volume, so if no one's gonna translate or scanlate it, i guess we could only rely on Viz work coz the next volume which is 8 is gonna be released in June.
I still don't believe this manga isn't being scanlated, comeone we have like 4 translator working on naruto/bleach/op FORGODSAKE InuYasha is still being scanlated...y wont anyone pick up this great manga is beyond me... I just hope with the anime being released the series will get more popular, and someone will pick it up. ARRGGGGG
The bad news is this manga is only released monthly in Japan, so i really really hope that with the anime and manga's popularity increasing, that the highers ups could change if from monthly to weekly .
it's quite an interesting story... kinda reminds me of persona3's art now & then
