Put things in spoiler tags so people won't see my comments before viewing it themselves.
Looks a bit photoshopped (the heads on the second picture are unnatural, their bodies aren't masculine enough IMO) but it's the real deal. It's called Bangaihen and it was in SQ.19.
I've just learned (using a dictionary) that "Bangaihen" is just an Extra scene, xD.

Anyway, it's awesome that we've got another dose of Claymore, even if it was only 8 pages. I might have been disappointed had I known it was in the works beforehand, but getting extra 8 pages when you expect nothing is something entirely different. I wonder though if it will be added into 22nd volume and if it will influence (shorten) the number of pages of normal chapters.
Oh, and thanks Ryus for the tip, after about the 10th of a month I'm not using Baidu or other sites to look for Claymore (only Gintama) so without you I would probably learn about it like 2 weeks from now. Much appreciated.
Dauf=Total Lolicon case and point.
I cant believe it!! Amazing my dream to know how Riful and Dauf have met just came true and not only that Riful was in Isley's generation!! I'm in shock!! And their symbols are unique to tell the truth specially Isley..

The idea that males awaken faster then females seems a bit more blurry now. I'm guessing the male generation must have lasted for a fairly long while.
Rigardo was the Irene of that time period...Ha!
Damn, it's good to see these guys again! And it's certainly a pleasant surprise when you don't expect anything. Riful looks so cute, so she was indeed still a kid when she became a Claymore. Wonder what her number is.
I thought it was that Riful was the first female number one, and not the first female Claymore? Though I'm not sure, I always thought that her generation came after Isleys, and now we find out that they were in the same generation.
It's possible that the MiB kept making male Claymores for a while, trying to understand and possibly fix whatever made them awaken faster.
I wonder if Riful was #4 then? I doubt she had a seperate #1 as a female warrior and #4 is mentioned by Isley on a 3rd page.
Possibly. IIRC, Rigaldo and Dauph are referred to as former no. 2 and 3 respectively. That'd suggest that they still held those positions when they awakened. The scene we'are looking at could be when the top 3 were close to awakening, and Riful was possibly a brand new warrior.
Otherwise it would mess up the timeline a bit. Riful is said to have reached the pinnacle of her power very fast, or something like that. I understood that to mean that she reached the no. 1 position rather quickly. Maybe starting in the single digits like Teresa and Priscilla? I don't know.
Either way, given her potential, I think she'd have overtaken Dauph and Rigaldo. But they are still referred to as former no.2 and 3, so I assume they were no longer there when she reached the top.
Dauf was actually shorter than I imagined him compared to Isley; skinnier too. But LOL at how tiny Riful was back then. Just look at her sword and how angled she must keep it to prevent it from dragging on the ground. Heck, she looks even smaller than the current trainees.
Keep in mind that last time, Yagi released a seies of short extra scenes before moving on with the plot. I just hope he's not doing it again - there are some things I'd like to know, like Galatea arriving in Rabona, or Raki discovering what Isley and Priscilla are, but at the same time, I'd like to see the real story advance a bit.

and what do u mean it would mess up what dauf said to the 12 AB to went west?
and this chapter has made me realize one thing as much as i like Roxanne, and even the other 2 ZAO, they just dont have the same feel as people like Riful, Isely, Rigaldo,Dauf.
