Isley easily gets a nomination in my book. The reason I'm not picking any of the normal Claymore is simply because they're limited to human form while allot of the females look very similar. Isley is a rare male fighter whose character design stands out from other males. You look at it & pretty much automatically know that this guy can kick ass. Also his transformation is rather elegant in comparison to allot of the grotesque monster transformations we've seen. A centaur like being that can transform his body parts into different weapons. What's not to love?
Meh, I'll have to go with Roxanne as even amongst the Claymores she looks really unique. I do agree with you on Isley, although there aren't many awesome males to compare him to.
I'm going with Isley. He simply has the best, and most unique, looking awakened form.
Seems a bit tough placing Abyssal and awakened ones along with Claymores for designed. Awakened ones have a whole other factor to consider that Claymore don't.
She has a simply elegant design that shows actual beauty as compared to Roxanne who while unique is all gussied up like strutting peacock, Roxy would have been insanely jealous. She had a calm demeanor and strong but subtle personality that was similar to Irene's but in a more passive and forgiving manner and lacking in that cool minded almost predatory analytical nature. If someone told me flora was Irene's younger sister I'd probably had believed it (and not just because of the techniques^^)
That and she's the kind of pretty that makes boy's blush. It's a shame the most attractive shot of her face we get is the same frame in which Rigardo sticks a claw through her skull second before rending her in two.
He looks creepy.
I'd have to say Isley. He easily has the most kick-ass design of any AB.
Isley's awakened form of course

I nominate Claire, the reason is simple: i TOTALLY LOVE everything about her
....especially her cold expressions.
...but even Galatea would have been a great nomination........i'm so unsure about this....
Clare is a good character design, but not original: Clare is in fact a powered-up second coming of Yagi1s best character design from his previous manga, Ikuno from Angel Densetsu. Isley vaguely reminds me of male leads in other mangas, too. Miria, however, is another matter: a rare female character who radiates authority, you can fully believe that others will entrust their lives with her, be it in the first awakened hunt or the War in the North or the final rebellion at the Organisation's HQ.
Roxanne really is one of a kind. Strikingly beautiful and deliciously evil, she's one of the most well-designed female characters I've ever seen in a manga, followed closely by Ophelia.
Character isn't just APPEARANCE it is also personality and this is what I'm going with. Riful has the best personality of any awakened being in my opinion so I will go with Riful.
Voted for Isley. I had high hopes for him in the second part of the manga, it's a shame that his character was wasted in one of the most poignant ways.
A hard one. I'll go with Riful. Roxanne somewhat reminds me of her but she's more lovable than her.
