Anyways we've already gotten hints that it is upcoming since only a few chapters ago Clare started using Raphaela's fighting style... so my guess is more combat and something personal (Raki) will trigger the revelation.
Seperate note rated Ch 5 out of 10 not since it was bad vs recent chapters but since it was imho below average vs earlier in the series. Compared to recent chapters it was at least average however I refuse to rate chapters based on the last few chapters. Instead I will always rate them based compared to all the chapters... so don't think I'm hating, more like I've been disillusioned by recent chapters but getting my fanhood slowly back

well, compared to the early chapters, these last few are total crap. No nuance, no hidden message (no we all get it, the no-name AB told Raki that he might be "strongest sword" due to the fact of him/Priscilla and that's why Priscilla unleashed attacks at the ABs very far away... yes WE ALL GET THAT NOW, EVERYONE GETS THAT!!1) The claymores suck arse right now. They have nothing interesting to say- and that is on the heels of their ridiculous victory at Org HQ.
Right now the manga is basically ridiculous. Yagi better show some game face to at least try to get us back in it.

either he slashes some claymores soon, or we're basically looking at Hello Kitty. He's already damaged this plot with Miria still around.
Seriouly at this rate I'd have even prefered Miria to have died and Tabitha to take her place, just so we could have some good characterization going on. Though I would have greatly prefered Tabitha dying saving Miria, from Hysteria by sacrificing herself to prevent Hysteria killing Miria thus giving Miria the chance to kill Hysteria. Then have Miria look up and see most of the warriors dead and have Miria freak out that she failed again but on a scale even worse than at Pieta. That was what I was thinking Yagi was going for, and have Miria awaken her body but not her mind in the resulting choas, like Clare did but more complete, thus saving the day. I was also thinking Roxanne would beat Cassandra and inflitrate the ghosts to study them to learn whom to bubby up to but betray them later in some epic moment... but nope we just got da powerz of sistahood awesum ness wins day via plot shield bs.
Anyways at least this chapter had some ambaguity to it with the just what will happen to Raki plot angle... but Miria spoke too much and Clare was out of character not ready to explode in anger and kill the ABs for even getting close to Raki. I mean really... that is just so out of character its not even funny, since when did Clare listen or follow anyone when Raki was involved? Sigh... below average is where I sit here with this chapter since it had some foreshadowing of something ambigious but every why the ghosts acted seemed forgein to them to the point I got really annoyed. I mean really Clate is back but Miria is still the main character.
Wow....so much Miria hate....
Your points stand guys, maybe it would have been better if Miria died at Organization HQ while killing Hysteria. But maybe Yagi has some other plans in future for all Ghosts.
And besides, if not like that all of them will survive the final battle. I wouldn't be surprised if only Clare and Raki survive in the end all everybody else die at the hands of Priscilla.
It's true that the fact there wasn't a single casualty among the warriors (even the lesser ones made it!) during the rebellion did hurt the credibility of the whole thing. Compared with the slaughter of Pieta, not a single victim, even as collateral damage, with 3 Abyssal-level AOs was pushing it.
November 28th ... Wonder when the first (likely fake) spoilers will start to arrive...
We will have some spoilers in day or two at least.
Only two more days to go im looking forward to the colour page !
It was actually released on 30'th of October.;
Oh Gosh, I hope this thing of the strongest sword will be something not so important at the end, because the way that Yagi portrayed Clare in this chapter is like she was just a character to justify that Miria and the other are more relevant in the story. IMO at this point of the story, the incredible story that begun about Teresa and Clare is far away, well I feel that something is missing.
