I know there's scanlation groups doing this, and I'm very well aware that this is royally late, but I'm doing this because a) I promised to and b) I hereby announce claymore to be a personal project of mine. I'll be doing every chapter that comes out from here on, including the regular series that hits shounen square next month.

Claymore - the story up until now
Many thanks for the strong support! Here are the newest details on the dramatic story up until now!
I) The world is full of man-eating youma. In order to fight back, humans placed youma flesh and blood into women, creating half-man half-youma soldiers. Because of their silver eyes which can identify youma, and the huge broadswords they wield, these women are called Claymores.
II) A long time ago, a young orphan girl named Claire met the strongest warrior, "Teresa of the Faint Smile". However, in order to save Claire's life, Teresa betrayed the organization and was hunted down. She was killed by Priscilla. In order to take her revenge, Clair become a claymore.

III) To stop Easley (one of the three strongest Awakened) from heading south, Claire and her fellow warriors head to the northern lands and are annihilated. However, her and a few were able to survive by hiding their Youki. In order to avenge Teresa, as well as her fallen comrades' deaths, Claire pushes forward...
-Following you because I want to
white: This time's 2nd side-story follows "Miria the Mirage"!!
below: The truth behind an event in vol 6, Scene 30 - "Those who tear to pieces - VI" will now become clear in this never-before-published scene!
-You're "Miria the Mirage", said to move faster than number one herself! (t/n - i can't really read the kanji in there so this is my best guess)
-I would love to fight your awakened form!
bottom right: CLAIRE
Possessing Teresa's flesh and blood, as well as Irene's right arm, she is the former number 47. Escaping the chaos of the north, she travels south with eight of her companions.
(the rest of the stuff is just info on the anime and the author's other work, Angel Legend)

-Check it out!
-Someone's sword has been dropped here
-Who's is it?
-It's not an insignia I know
-Give it to me, Helen
-You know it, Miria (sis)?
-could this be...
-This your first hunt?
-Pretty good for number 17,
-I can't let a single digit number 6 like you hog all the credit,
-Well when it comes to potential, you win
-You just haven't realized your abilities
-It was just for a few seconds, but there were times when your movements were even faster than mine
-If you could just learn to use it freely, you'll become extremely powerful
(she actually says 化ける - disguise/take form of/hide. I trans'd it that way because it is difficult to find a fit)
-That'd be nice if I could...
-Ah, but when you become a single digit,
-Because only one is dispatched per hunt, we probably won't be able to fight together again
-It's kinda sad, isn't it?
-Since hunting Awakeneds is left up to numbers 9 and above,
-That basically means they shouldn't mind how many single digits tag along
(t/n - edit: should be correct now.)
-Next time, let's make a team--with both of us as single digits warriors
-It's a deal

-By releasing her Youki for a split second, she gains a momentary burst of speed
-It looks as if her body is there, but it's not
-No wonder she's called "Miria the mirage"
-In fact, out of all the soldiers, at this point she can likely even exceed the speed of number one herself
-After this mission is over, she'll be a single digit just like you
-She's really good
-By the way, why aren't you fighting?
-Aren't you part of the team?
-If it's just a bunch of youma then it's fine just to leave it to them
-I'm not interested in anything but Awakeneds
-You never change
-Where are you headed, Ophelia?
-I gotta pee
-You shouldn't question a lady about these things
-This time you'll be slaying an Awakened
-It's somewhere around these mountains
-This is the same...
-The same place I fought with Hilda back then
-There'll be four of you
-Because there's two single digits this time,
-The higher rank of the two will be the captain
-I'm fourth-ranking member, Ophelia
-Nice to meet you number eight...Miria
-All right, let's go
-The day will be over soon...
-I can feel a tremendous Youki
-Can I ask you a question?
-You looked kinda disappointed when I introduced myself
-Are you nervous because of my rank?
-Ah, no, not at all
-I once fought around here with another high ranking member, and we promised to fight together again. I was somehow expecting her, that's all
-If I hurt your feelings
-No, that's all right
-Looks like I was just being overly sensitive
-Was that person your friend?
-Yeah, we had a lot in common
-Her situation was very similar to mine for entering the organization
-We were able to talk about a lot of things
-It was her advice that made me stronger
-In fact, I can say she's the reason for my rank now
-What a wonderful friend
-I guess I'll share with you something interesting...
-what is it?
-This is actually not the first time I've been paired up with you
-I think it was about a month ago
-It was a mission to hunt an Awakened but turned out to be nothing but Youma...I was actually part of that team
-I thought something was strange since there was no high ranking member around
-Since it was nothing but Youma, I was certain my help wasn't needed
-I watched you all from someplace close by
-It was then
-That I realized another soldier was coming near
-Her breath was weak
-She was reaching her limit
-Basically ready to awaken any time
-She was carrying a black letter
-and asked me to give it to one of the organization's informants
-She was so silly (滑稽)
-The person she really wanted to give it to was right nearby
-She probably couldn't sense her youki anymore!
-It was so funny I couldn't control myself
-I tore that letter up and threw it away right there!
-What are you talking about?!

-So this is Ophelia, the number four...
-It's our turn to cover Ophelia!
-This is all you got?!
-At this rate, Ophelia is going to finish this by herself!
-But...what is it...
-It's almost like that thing is...
-It's right in front of you!
-Get the head!
-Is it holding back its massive Youki?
-Next time, let's make a team--with both of us as single digits warriors
-Why didn't you call my name?!
-Why didn't you...tell me!?
-That thing lost its human mind a long time ago
-There's nothing to analyze here
-After all, it was just
-Her Youki is going out of control!!
-"Miria the mirage", said to surpass the speed of even number one herself...
-I'd love to fight your Awakened form!!
-I finally found your sword
-By the time you reached these mountains, you weren't able to carry a sword anymore...
-This place hasn't changed
-Everything's the same as it was back then
-Hey, Miria (sis)
-C'mon, hurry up--or you'll be left behind
-Are you watching, Hilda?
-These are all of my friends
Along with the many warriors who died in the North,
Let's go, Hilda!
(t/n - that's the order it appears)
