I don't see how Riful-Duff could be a "Sword Art Online"Quote:
Anyway i want to add that even if Claire's QS is really only at Irene's QS level (tbh i still have some doubts), Claire has much more than just the QS so it's not right to say that Claire is just as strong as Irene.....
I agree Clare have one arsenal of techniques however the only strongest two would be youki reading and Quick sword the others are useless even before reaching the Irene level sword Quick sword always was the stronger technique she have, but now even it clare know the fighting style of rafhaela nothing implies that style it the best or stronger at least I don't think it stronger or better after all a claymore having a strong level of youki or strength does not mean her fighting style it stronger or best
True, but the key point is that Claire has potentially a yoki that is immensely greater than Irene, that's why it's possible for Claire to defeat Prissy while it's impossible for Irene.
Also don't understimate Raphaela's knowledge, her technique is basically the missing thing that Claire needed to create a perfect style, now QS+PSY+YF is no doubt the most crazy style that a warrior ever had, all that Claire needs now to face Prissy is "just" an immense yoki, but something tells me that that immense yoki is already inside her.
Anyway, Claire as yet to find out her "big mistake" that Raph was talking about, it seems to me that Yagi has yet to reveal a big "secret" about Claire, i wonder what it is....
I supposed that mistake rafaela was talking about it referred to taking revenge again Priscilla after all Priscilla was acting under the organization orders it clare really want revenge she would have done again the organization and about all that damn orsay or orzay because it someone got more reason it no miria because miria friend was one awakening while teresa was a claymore it their duty to exterminate mindless monster like the friend of miria and such
Why would number five known so much about lowest ranking warrior who got caught running free?
I think it's part of some Rubel master plan that involved years of making and various characters taking actions.
Ehm, Raphaela and Claire's minds and bodies were connected, it wouldn't be so strange for Raph to be able to "read" Claire (not to mention that Raph was also able to do soul link).
Also it's quite probable Raph knew Teresa, so it makes sense for her to know things about Claire.
What i want to know lol is how exactly did Raphaela draw Clare to her fused self before she Awakened ? Did she use a mild form of Yoki synch ? Or did she attempt a Soul Link with Clare? Because didnt Clare say her head hurt cant really remember
Personally i think Raph is referring to something completely different,we'll see.

Raphaela met Teresa in a chance encounter while Teresa was a child trainee. Raphaela was quite a bit older claymore than she (she already only had one eye when she ran into Teresa). On page 20, the manga time skips far into the future. Rubel walks into Raphaela's cave and says "Teresa is dead." Raphaela is like "!" Then Rubel tells her she's back into the organization at Number 5, if she'll go kill her sister.
So we know that Raphaela knew of Teresa and had a chance encounter w/her as a trainee, and, probably heard stories of the girl Teresa was dragging along in her last days. But it would seem that the two didn't really "know" each other. And it suggests that Raphaela was still exiled from the Org while Teresa was active.
Although this would sure be a juicy extra, if Raphaela and Teresa had further encounters.

She was quite surprised when Clare used that, if she was really able to read her mind she would have known that. I think there is more to that here than simple mind reading, everything is just too well placed together...
It's not true imo that it seems that the two really didn't know each other, for all we know it's 100% possible that the two had other encounters and that they knew each other very well.Quote:
From what Raph said, it seems that her conscoiusness wasn't rebuilt in a very stable manner, it's not strange that Raph didn't "read" every memory (it also makes sense that Raph couldn't do a perfect reading and focused only on the memories connected to Claire's strongest emotions)Quote:
In case you haven't noticed Raph also asked "witch one of you is Claire?" when in truth she obviously already know who was Claire.
Her "persona" wasn't completely and perfectly rebuilt, that's quite obvious imo.....and like Raph said herself, she was focusing only on what "Claire needs to know", and clearly the fact that Irene taught Claire the QS was not relevant to Raph's objective, simple as that.
Anyway, I hope Yagi will gives us something in the future chapters to finally show us what happened to Ilena.
I was so exited with rumors for the previous chapter, about the one armed long hair women appearing. I was so sad when it turned out to be zombie Riful
I really hope that she will appear before this battle is over, to help Clare and the others defeat Priscilla.
I also was very excited with the rumors about Irene......but i have to admit that i couldn't be disappointed when i saw chibi-Riful 'cause i totally loved Riful, so if she there is a little possibility to have back in the story a character somehow connected with her i can hope that not only her form but even her cunning attitude will be conserved (and that was the best part imo,lol)
Raphaela is turning out to be one of the most intriguing, mysterious, important and awesome claymores. Go Raph!
