I feel priss is not acknowledging clares real potential. She claimed that she was on par with the other one. I feel she was talking about irene. However, what she does not know is clares holding back. But, more over I feel fear is not whats holding clare back. I think its more of whats inside of her holding her back. Shes needing that final push to make it over the top.
I lol-ed so hard on the last page - 'what will become of Priscilla?'
She is going to survive all of their attacks and kill them slowly one by one, because she is a troll like that.
And I agree with kaidedshard - I am expecting Clare saving the day in the end by doing some OTT move.
Now, if Yagi until the end of this battle introduce Mainland in some way, he will surely finish Claymore with ths - as Goral said. But I don't like that, it would be like cheap end.
I didn't mind the action in this chapter at all and thought it was appropriate for what Yagi wanted to convey. Sure it's not what we saw in Pieta or when Priscilla fought the Blacks. However, the battle served as the vehicle to provide insight into Clare's growth and evolution, not as a warrior but as a human being. Clare died emotionally when the Yoma killed her farmily. She died again when Priscilla killed Teresa. Don't get me wrong, the life she would have lived with Teresa would have been difficult, but it's one that she would have shared with someone she loved and with someone who loved her beyond all measure of life.
As Deneve pointed out (goodness, she is the wisdom of the group), Clare's restraint is born from a desire to live. She wants to enjoy her life with her long time companions and, of course, Raki. Friendship, family, a lover, those are things that separate regular humans from Claymore warriors. There's a bit of irony in this. In becoming a warrior and seeking revenge, which Teresa would not have wanted, she found the most important things in life that Teresa had always hoped for Clare.
So cool......can't wait to see what Claire will do, 'cause i dont belive even for a second that that fight will go on without something big happening to Claire and going full power, but probably triggered only after some tragic scene (yup, someone will die for sure, i just hope it wont be Raki).
Also even if the ghosts havent seen the QS for a long time, they still have fought with Claire using the WC so they OBVIOUSLY know more or less the timing that Claire uses that kind of move.........not to mention that probably they have also group attack patterns developed in the years.
I felt very sad reading this chapter, though it was good anyway... its sad because its signaling an end to the main plot

At least Priscilla give it spanking to everyone, the enjoyable part to me.
Miria declaration of victory at the end suck.
I think I see now why the Org expected Priscilla to surpass Teresa; she was freaking strong even as a warrior. Probably stronger than Hysteria, who was already stronger than a normal No. 1.
I thought that Clare and Miria would have grown to the point that they could at least challenge a No. 2 Priscilla, but not even close. Which nicely illustrates the fact that Clare still has a looong way to go before reaching Teresa.
If Claymore Priscilla could stop and avoid the Quick Sword without even trying, Teresa could do much more, and this proves she actually never needed her PYS to deal with it. In the end, despite its sheer speed and strength, the QS is limited by it's user.
it's like a total 180...clarice<miata =teresa>clare....strength roles switch
clarice's sacrifice to bring miata back is becoming significant...because teresa is probably restraining clare from awakening fully...just my guess.but,since clarice died a weakling and never showed anything else(warrior wise)...why else was the use for her in the manga?
we all know that clare is special...like wickedsmile said,it's quite ironic....
she has access to the power/skill/technique of teresa...but teresa is also holding her back(having taking her into her body instead of a youma)

Anyway i have some doubt that Prissy is REALLY fighting as she was as n.2.........actually it's clearly BS imo since Prissy was strong as n.2 but not THAT strong.
Imo Prissy is simply limiting some aspects of her power, not everything. For example, being able to follow QS and stop it like it was nothing, sure as hell is not something that old Prissy could pull off, at least not that easily.........and that makes sense, infact even if she said that she limited her power, do you really think that she would pretend to not be able to follow an attack that now she can follow naturally?
Nha, i dont buy it, Prissy in the old arc was strong, but no way in hell she was this strong, even going back to look at the past chapters (even if i perfectly know the panels already,lol).
There's no reason for Priscilla to lie. During her earlier duel Clare confirmed she was moving at human speed, the drop in speed was so dramatic that for a second Clare thought she wasn't moving at all. Yes, claymore Priscilla is just that overpowered. I'm not going to bash QS, a technique that would fit well for a #1, but people were overhyping it way too much (to the point where it sounded like Teresa and Priscilla should've been demoted) and now we know it's still not quite at Ileana's level, whom claymore Priscilla should have no problem defeating.

Hey, she could be sticking to her word. Fighting as she was when she was No.2, with 100% youki release.
Anyway, was an all right chapter. Looks like Clare is going to have to overcome yet another mental block for this fight. I don't know what's going to happen, since Pricilla seems pretty unstoppable right now. I hope she doesn't trash Cassandra in one chapter because that would be totally anti climatic as there have been several chapter dedicated to getting this one plan to work. I guess she'll hold Pricilla off for a minute while Clare taps into that Teresa flesh.
I'll make you one that can't be denied in any way:
Prissy in the past had some problem following some of Teresa's movements and it's 100% sure that even if Teresa moved fast in that fight she couldn't move too fast cause she has zero attrite problems........but present Priscilla can deal with QS attack and at the same time Miria's top phantom, and she even noticed the phantom when Miria was already moving and we know that at that point even Histy 'speed is not enought to evade. As strong as she was as n.2, yeah right.....
0% opinion, 100% fact, this is impossible to deny.
So no, there is not even a little bit of doubt that the Priscilla that is fighting now is way stronger than her old self.........well,technically iirc she also said that she would have increased the power little by little during the fight, so it's possible that she simply increased her power to a level that would allow her to enjoy to the fullest her fight against Miria and Claire.

Afterall, like Leroid already pointed out, even when she said that she was fighting with human strenght, well.........LMAO.
