This chapter is not that interesting for me. It seems the monthly serialization is taking its toll on me. Oh well at least this chapter has a few good points
The few good parts:
Clarice can erase memories? (how can you do that?)
Galatea's speech about Clarice's sacrifice
Cassandra's prowess and a little bit of flashback(too bad its only a silhouette of Roxanne, I liked her too.)
The rest is not that interesting.
About Octavia, she really feels like one of the very very old generations, maybe she kinda acts like the unofficial 'leader' here, or maybe it's the way Miria is surprised by her, or maybe it's her awakened form looking soooo much like Isley's... Even her name sounds old lol, I mean, you can't imagine Clare's name as an old name right? :P
I love the name Octavia, and you're right imagine say if it was Clare instead of Octavia that lead the little army of Awakened. Miria: "Tch..Clare.." doesn't sound as intimidating haha
And because Yagi likes to play with the meanings of the names I think Octavia will be the next to die. We've had all of the female Awakened and Lars die, meaning that seven have croaked. So Octavia, her name meaning "the eight".. doesn't look well for her O.O And Chronos is the "god of time" so he'll probably outlive the rest of the Awakened. I don't want any of them to die though :'(
>Clarice can erase memories?
I'm starting to not look at it as being strictly erasing memories. But I find it hard to describe.
The wedges we have seen both occur after a yoki synch. What we know about the Claymores specifically created for this type of thing (soul link) is that one holds onto the humanity of the other in a way. I've come to believe that by reaching deep within someone, their "essence" or "beings" are almost merged for a time being. If this is true, then it would explain's Jean's will staying within Clare, and Clarice being able to remove her presence from Miata. So in Miata's case, it may not just be her memories, but a complete gap may be left in her "heart" where Clarice used to be.
There seem to be a growing number of Roxanne fans around here. Let's push for a prequel spin-off.
Maybe like say, someone today named Isis or something?

Haha, based Dae, he just doesn't care. Keep calm and exposit.
Isn't Raki's name a possible transliteration of lucky or something? Maybe Rubel running into him means he can finally turn his bad luck around.
Quite a few ironic bits including Octavia's line about escaping (as Rubel hinted at it feels like no matter where you run in this world you'll eventually run into the strongest awakened beings) and Priscilla being added to the long list of characters that had entrusted their will to Clare.
I'm not ready to give up on "iron man tomboy," one nickname I heard. I liked her. Shame about Lars, he was one of the finest scholars of our generation, but consider this: unless someone goes over their limit the claymores are running out of awakened beings to use as meatsheilds. Unfortunately, Cassandra is next in line but I just want to find out if she and Cynthia plot point is ever going to be a thing. Speaking of which, dear Cynthia hasn't had any screentime as of late. This needs to be fixed asap. Those 3 can't just sit around in that spot shooting the breeze all day! And it'd be a nice role for her to play.
i hope they have Cynthia appear on Cassandra right in front of her human part...and same something like "hello again my friend" and smile, cassy will remember her friend see the resemblance and stop fighting OR she could see Cynthia be reminded of her friend then remember how she died at the ploy of Roxanne then go berserk and kill Cynthia/use Dust eater and miria saves her
Alright I know everyone is happy to see clare appears /(but she only appears an two or three little frame an hall what she do as some cowardly taking) -how come everyone is too happy about the Mach up vs Priscilla, clare is being supported by awakened and warriors and still unable to beat casandra?! How can hope clare to put a decent fight against Priscilla? Wen she can do nothing about casandra?! At that level clare is now yagi should not even think about make her face Priscilla .
I have to agree with number12michael. I do hope Cynthia would play a major part regarding Cassandra. I like her character except for the suicidal part. If I remember correctly Cynthia is just a number away from Captain Veronica. She could be stronger than Deneve if Deneve is not HA.
but not all defensive are weaker than offensive ^__^" .... But for Cynthia's case she excels at regeneration <-- herself and others ..... so that makes her a pure support type claymore but , i think she can fight too but not as great as that of pure offensive type claymores ...... and As I remembered Cynthia i think is rank 14 or 15 while Deneve is 20+ ... XP ..... But Deneves extendoooo arm is pretty useful for an offensive claymore.
the significance and implication of names in the Claymore universe. Check it out and share your opinion. It would be interesting to learn more about it.
If name means something teresa and clare means powers levels like God's something apart from mere human's or mere warriors (a completed different dimensions.!)
Teresa and Clare are the name of two goddess in the manga.
