    Re: Claymore 115 Disc/116 Pred Thread

    I thought the manga said they DO have their old (and "difficult"/dangerous) personalities/behaviors, they are NOT Revived/Re-Animated as "mindless dolls" but their full selves...

    Also, one member (i think on another site though maybe it's this one, can't remember, lol) mentioned Dae saying he could give them whatever personality he wanted (such as making them more docile/controlable/obedient), though I don't remember this, but I'm too lazy to go back and look, lol.

    Re: Claymore 115 Disc/116 Pred Thread

    While it would be hilarious if the Three joined the rebellion, I doubt we'll see that happen. I wonder if Dae ever had any means of keeping them under control in mind? Either Rimuto has an escape route for himself, or he's taken a bunch of valium to still be so calm. And it seems like Raki might be picking up a fangirl club. Is it just me or does the one trainee look a bit like a younger Cynthia? Also did Raki seem to be enjoying hurting the MIB's, just a little bit? Well now I've got to wait for the next chapter. I'll try to get my chapter review with my full thoughts up sometime this weekend, but I'll need to get some sleep first.

    What does it mean? It means your about to get your butt kicked!

    I must say that the chapter excluding Raki scenes, is pretty good. I am annoyed about all the suddenly strength of Raki, because it fits perfectly with shounen stereotypes, even his phrases are quite plain, and the fact that I consider he has not been providing an interesting part of the story from my point of view.

    About Dae, it is interesting how he makes what he wants just for research and development, and in some way put his priorities over the organizations. The worst for the Org. is that they are depending a lot from him, he is the base of the Org.
    I am dying of curiosity to see the faces of the ex number ones.

    So does that mean that they have their memories since those personalities are connected to experiences. So I guess we can assume that even if they were dead for such a long time, with their half-yoma body, they still retain their human mind....

    Re: Claymore 115 Disc/116 Pred Thread

    Wow I am Raki fan so this was an awesome chapter for me. I mean he was exuding coolness without even trying and I am happy how strong he has gotten. Plus Isley has trained him well and when it was introduced that Isley was giving him "tips" it had an undertone that he would make Raki into as strong as any human can be without Yomi.
    I think that upcoming Raki will get more panel time but I think that after Claire and him got separated I think he got enough panel time because he was with Priscilla as well and the mangaka was keeping her a "mystery" and there was no need to extensively show Isley training him.

    Can't wait to see the three former number 1's...... a whole month away.... smh

    well, Raki HAS BEEN TRAINED BY ISLEY FOR 6 YEARS (and growing physically too, getting "refined" too by the training, as he grows), and that's a LONG TIME, so it's not unreasonable for him having near perfect swordsmanship and combat tactics, as Isley was quite the sempei/mentor, being legendary in swordsmanship skills and a combat tactics genius. Raki had a good teacher/mentor/sempei, hehe

    Well Cassandra and Roxanne were givens but I must say I was hoping for Sistina the Universal instead of Hysteria. It's nice to see Raki owning some people and I'm surprised at just how powerful the Twins are. Another thing I noticed, all the warriors are exhausted except for Miria and Audrey. She must have more power than any of use have ever thought.

    slight correction:

    Sistina the Divine Oracle

    Lutecia the Universal

    which was the one you were hoping for?

    -----------

    and excellent observations about the TATs (Trainee Awakening Twins or your "twins", lol) and Audrey's being powerful and performing well. Miria goes without saying hehe. We knew the TATs were powerful as seen against Miria, but now we're seeing them even more, taking out the AFs with ease, whereas Miria and Audrey couldn't, as the TATs came to their rescue, hehe.

    I never recognized/noticed this observation of yours, so thanks for it!

    I'd be LMAO if that happened. I mean I would seriously like to see Rubel's face after that one. Rimuto would still be cool about the whole affair though. I like your sig by the way. Can't get enough of Boa Hancock.

    Lol, who knows? Somehow I think he did because he thinks of everything. However I think he intentionally "forgot" to incorporate that control mechanism because he wanted to see just how much of "themselves" the number ones were able to retain even after being resurrected from the dead.

    Rimuto is cool because he always has a back-up plan. When you're THAT DAMN BADASS you don't need drugs. He's a smooth criminal for sure.

    That's funny, messed up, and badass all at the same-time. Dae pulled an Orochimaru on the MIB's Akatsuki.

    It's possible but unnecessary. Let's think about it. Isley has been dead for quite sometime now, both based on our perception of time and the events in the manga. As of now Priscilla is irrelevant. The story has shifted perspectives. I'm not saying anything bad about the characters, simply because there is a different focus now we need not give them any substantial air-time.

    I' think now, that Raki is not a Human. Projectile and priscilla's arm have infected his blood. Have you seen his arm before the jump during the battle?? ALso in the movement.....he seems a male claymore.

    My guess is that he has gained some sort of natural power from being exposed to Isley and Priscilla for so long. You can say he soaked up their youki and gained a natural resistance. I think there is something special about him but he won't be anything like a claymore, but more than anything he will probably be stronger.

    That sounds like radiation or something like that, but I definitely for the moment do not think that raki is now a male claymore, because what we know until now, Dae is the only person who knows how to create claymores. It is obvious that Norihiro needs to show how claymores are created, and this will be important to guess who knows to make claymores.

    Re: Claymore 115 Disc/116 Pred Thread

    Yagi is up to his old trick again with this chapter. He's left us salivating for the next chapter. While the battle outside the Organization's walls progress, Raki escapes and we now get a sense that he has become a very special male Claymore. He doesn't awaken when he uses his Yoma powers. Perhaps this is a result of the contamination by the Destroyer's rod and Priscilla's flesh (the latter is a stretch at best).

    I rather enjoyed how Yagi drew Raki in this chapter. He's no longer the feeble minded boy whose insecurities dictated his actions. From the depiction, he fought with greater ferocity against the twins than when Miria fought against her fellow warriors. He even has that angry frown that Miria has when she fights.

    In Chapter 81, Lune/Renee asked Raki what he would do if Priscilla awakened? Raki stated that he would fight Priscilla and attempt to stop her. As a male Claymore, perhaps he now has an miniscule chance to accomplish this. Having lived with Isley for so long, I'm certain that Raki shared Isley's last sentiments. He's come to think of Priscilla as part of his family. Could he actually do this if required? What emotional toll would that bring to him?
