Neither good, nor bad
I've written very long posts about why Claymore needs this for the past 2 years on AS but atm I only have a few moments of free time to finish this post. But a quick sumup, the best chapters of late have been the back stories of Cassandra and Roxanne, Mirias death and return, and anything with Rubel or Dae yet the most boring chapters have been the fights especially once they got going (minus Hysterias intro, which kicked ass... and the intro of Cassandra/Roxanne to a lesser degree but those where more back story anyways). Lets face it everyone knew whod survive ghost/warrior wise so there was no suspence and it took months to complete when we all but knew the outcome... however if Yagi could have done this arc in 6 months not 10 with more back story too boot the arc could have kicked ass. Claymore is really suffering from a limitation of being confined to 31 pages a month and if Yagi could get more pages a month like FMA did for the last half of the story it could go back to the way it was.... SUPERB.
Look at it another way, the last half of FMA would have sucked if dragged out for 3 times longer than it was (since the last few chapters where about 3 times longer than the first few). Some stories just need longer then the standard given episode/chapter size.

Strange; we may get the chapter before the spoilers are even out yet? That's happened before, but it's still very weird and feels out of place 0_o
Guess nobody can complain though...Hopefully the next chapter will be an all-talk chapter - a good break from all the action and a chance to tie of tons of loose ends hanging around, and their are plenty.
