Neither good, nor bad
The end of Claymore? I don't believe. I loved the machinery part though and I liked the appearance of dragon-kin. For me, to end Claymore this way... I don't believe... This kind of ending is kinda similar to ending of 'Veritas' manga. Where I was expecting an epic battle (there were antagonists in that series, like in Claymore where we have Clare & Pris, an I had expected that Gangryong will be fighting with Vera, like here I had expected Pris vs Clare). Both of endings seems kind of rushed and uncompleted. Still, I liked that bitter, uncompleted ending in 'Veritas', while I can't accept that kind of ending in Claymore.
PS: Vera is like Teresa +badass lvl 10 Or maybe Vera is similar to Pris rather than similar to Theresa? I don't know.
Genei, Claymore is not over...
Whether or Claymore will be re-named, is speculated at this point, but rest assured, that the story is not ending.
You could argue that their is no proof otherwise, but new info is popping up with time, and more and more, all the worst-case scenarios are looking more and more false.
What I'm hoping for is that the story will continue, and will not be renamed...why then the chapter didn't say anything about Next month, was because maybe somebody forgot that part XD
Negative Syndicate, I think we can agree now that it was fake
I didn't honestly catch it too, until you said it - then again, I'm oblivious to that sort of stuff

I really hope you're right though I still have doubts because there were no confirmationQuote:

If Claymore title does change, I don't think it will be anything drastic.
It will probably be like:
Claymore The Hundreds Years War
Rubel have always planned to have the organization destroyed itself. Now that organization is done for, I think the existence of Claymore is still consider a threat for the Dragon kin and their partners. An invasion from the main land into the island is highly possible to eliminate any future threats that the Claymore pose and to posssible gain information and war potentials that would benefit them in the war. Dae is a mad scientist who live for his experiments. If Rubel kidnap the "Blob" with Clare and Priscilla in it to the main land, then Dae will gladly continue his experiment, it doesn't matter to him which side he is working for. If Clare in the "Blob" is kidnapped, the ghosts will surely go to the main land to rescue her. There is a reason why Yagi sensei have that many warriors alive along with all the trainees. Of course if the dragon kin does invade there will be many Claymore casualty and some will likely be kidnap for study and experiment. The remaining Claymore force will seek to rescue their friends and revenge for their fallen friends.
One more interesting thing.
Consider how almost all Claymore (damn you Clarice ;P) have blonde hair and silver eyes despite what originally color they had.
The Dragon Kin before they "awaken" most likely have the appearance of human with blond hair and silver eyes too since they are more or less ancestor of Claymore.

Claire and the Priscilla blob being captured is definitely the best pretext I've ever heard for anybody needing to go over there
that sounds good .. was going to ask how but that may be Cassandras next use
Well, just because the blob is captured, it doesn't mean we won't necessarily see Claire and Priscilla...we can still delve inside the blob and have all sorts of mental battles, revelations and what not....heck, along the way, maybe they escape the blob together and go off doing things on their own and, the Ghosts don't know that while chasing after the blob and getting mixed in their own battles.
The obvious issue I have with all this is...what about Cassandra? What about the Island? Or everything?
It's just too too much...really, despite all my speculating, I'm still holding out that all of this won't even come true....that we won't go to the continent, no dragons, no new title, no new nothing.
1. Raphaella "you made a huge mistake" + DODs cannot revert -> the whole morality angle about staying human would shift. The ghosts would have to redefine the way they conceptualize their identities. They might not venture to the mainland to join either side, but rather to find out about their ancestors/forefathers/ or wahtever you wanna call it. They would have to find their place in this world as "monsters" ... or lern to see things differently.
2. A new arc at this point would leave it to the ghosts to "finish" the island revolution's aftermath. Surely stray Yoma and ABs still roam and need to be delt with. Ties with Rabona could be deepened, the power vacuum left by the org has to be handled somehow etc pp
3. Dae didn't get it. Fear not, Dr.Frankenstein is still at large to breed more monstrosities
4. The whole Clare/Prissy blob thing could get a whole new dynamic with this background
Well, that's just some points,sure we'll find more of interest over the month.
As for title, I find benelori's "chicks with swords" quite charming
though "awakening" has a nice ominious ring too :

On another matter, I overread that post suggesting the blob might get stolen, presumably by Dae or such. that's a nice idea, I like
If this is truly the end, then I'm quite disappointed. Like many of you, I'm sad to see the Manga end but I'm even more critical of the manner by which it ended. The Organization has capitulated and there remains but to kill any yomas or AB left on the continent. In addition, we're left with Clare and Priscilla at each other's throat, locked for eternity within the prison of that cocoon. Anyone remember Lazarus from Star Trek TOS? Seems like an identical ending. Perhaps Yagi is a bigger Trekkie than I am.
Hoping God Eye Galatea is right and the last phrase implies the end of the organization making Claymores. Also, the end of the Organization is Miria's story!!! Clare never cared about the Orgnization. She cared only to avenge Teresa. Like Clare's obsession with killing Priscilla this is Miria's ultimate goal that drives her actions. She didn't do it to avenge Hilda. She did it to save her fellow warriors as she realized that each of them was doomed to die, either at the hand of a warrior as a result of a black card event or as the pray of a hunt for a newly emerged Awakened Being.
I'm ridiculously angry at the prospect of this wonderful story ending in such a miserable manner. However, I do appreciate Miria's sense of irony. She afforded Rimulto a Claymore's death. She should have taken out her black card, thrown it at his feet and then cut his head off. Yu Aida had better not do this to the only other Manga that I follow and it's near its end as well.
