Neither good, nor bad
I'm not really sure what to say about that news, since i'm not really sure how any of that stuff works....how moving to a new magazine would affect how Yagi does his own story for instance, makes no sense to me. If that's the case, then I certainly hope that doesn't happen...that Yagi's sequel is different in anyway in presentation (more fanservice for instance >_>, though you were probably just joking Gooral ) because of the new magazine.
I mean really....I don't know much about the intimate details of Yagi himself, how he makes his story, what influences him and his work etc (and the less I know, the better I think...otherwise, my perception on all sorts of things may change if I see something I don't like)...
All I want, is as little change as possible - one chapter per month, no new title, no 'sequel', no ending, no nothing....I'm aware all my wants probably won't be satisfied, but I'm still hoping, since I don't think it's too much to ask....though I'm not in charge of anything.
The last thing I want, is for Claymore to be in a new magazine with a new title (and Chapter 1 again? oh god >_<) and suddenly the story is like reading a bad fanfiction....whatever happens in the future, I just want things to stay the same as much as possible.
Basically the only difference you could expect from a magazine change is Yagi having more freedom. That would explain the over saturation of shonen stereotypes last arc. Maybe Yagi was just getting it out of his system while he had the chance lol.
to be honest I would like for Claymore to be in a seinin mag. Yagi would be able to have more freedom with killing and "other" things that he could add to claymore.
I'm still unsure about the idea of the magazine being the source of Yagi's decisions as of late...I just find that unlikely - their is simple no hard evidence to suggest that.
It's all gonna come down to perception and preference...you could say that the stuff happening in the story is, if this is the right idea, because the magazine people have been pressuring Yagi...but their are people who go as far back as Isley's death to say that the story has had stuff they didn't like; so unless you are suggesting that their has been pressure since then...
And their are of course, people who, though I've never seen them before, actually prefer post-timeskip stuff to pre-timeskip stuff....or people who simply never seen the story be of a certain "type", whether as of late or ever, at all...
The point I'm trying to make is, I don't get why some people think, if Yagi is going to move to a new magazine, that that is somehow going to give him more 'freedom' or "make up" for stuff the stuff that's happened recently that may or may not have been influenced by editors or whoever....that's entirely perceptive; their is no solid proof whatsoever that Yagi has ever been influenced or forced to make any sorts of decisions with the story.
This is what I hate the most and since Yagi is a monthly mangaka it will simply ruin my life.. maybe when I become 25 I will resume Claymore..Quote:
I don't see how a change of title and a changed numeration could ruin anything. There would be practically no difference between Claymore chapter 140 and Claymore: The War chapter 14, assuming it would be a direct continuation of the Claymore story.
The only thing that matters imo is the story to be a direct continuation, with Claire again as the MC and focus of the narration (since for my taste the narration flowed A LOT better when the story was built around Claire.......and no,it's not just because Claire is my fav character).
Adding a subtitle or changing the chapter's numeration are aspects COMPLETELY irrelevant imo.
......let's just hope Claymore won't end here.......
IF there's a sequel, I wonder what it will be about...
They can hardly make a story with just the Clare vs Priscillia thing.
Even if there would be a lot of material there, especially with Raki's relationship with both of them...
That could add some drama, but still...
I think we will see more of those Asarakam.
The story might become about the Claymore fighting them.
And there's still a lot of things that were left feeling incomplete...
Like the whole Miata/Clarice thing...
It's just a feeling Gooral....I know it can be seen as pickiness, but I'm just like that.Quote:
It just feels wrong to me....I mean, like I said, some people could even review Claymore as-is since it's 'technically' over, even if it's not. Like you, I'm hoping the sequel is a direct sequel and not any ridiculous time-skips; one was enough - we still, to this day, don't know all the things that happened during the seven years - maybe enough to understand the big events, which is enough for Yagi since speculation and imagination would fill in the rest...but again, that often just feels like an excuse; imagination is fun and all many times, but I also, just as an example, want to actually see the 'family' of Isley/Raki/Priscilla and not just hear about it or imagine it.
Going back to the title and changes though, less is more for me; I know it may seem weird for some people, but I just don't like the idea of any big changes like this, though I know I'll probably end up wrong.
