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.

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.
we'll be waiting for your review, but no hurries! Your (many) reviews have been excellent and greatly appreciated and enjoyed I'm sure by all, hehe
(If you're interested, you might want to see the Claymore sticky anouncment thread about manga reviews, we're trying to revive interest in it, and have been changing some things/rules/requirements up too)

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.
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.
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' 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.
Lutecia. I can't even think of what abilities would afford her the nickname "The Universal". I have to see her fight lol.Quote:
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.

I saw Cassandra ears and I though in Ophelia´s ears
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?
