Now kinda off topic but the arm clare has now is that her own arm(has Irenes arm been destroyed ?)
Edit: and i take no offence to what you said, all i want is for u to justify why you have that opinion of the new awakened beings? why are they worse looking? defend what you say dont just say "they suck" or "they look bad" or "they are unoriginal" give me reasons :P
I don't see any way for her arm to not be Irene's still .... unless the Blob healed Clare's body entirely to include her right arm, which is a distinct possibility! I hadn't thought of that before but maybe you guys always just assumed that the Blob did regenerate/replace her arm. Otherwise it's still Irene's arm.
Btw, are we allowed to talk about this chapter? I just finished looking at the panes and wow ... I am digging these scenes.
What irks me is how only these four decided to take on an AO. Just the four of them. How insane is that? The balls on these gir--wait, never mind . They don't have balls. But I'm beginning to wonder whether they have a plan or are just winging it.
On another note, the possibility of Clare reaching Teresa's level (raw power-wise) somewhat distresses me. I wanted Teresa to remain the only goddess up there with no match (probably because I like her more), but alas, it seems it is not to be. Yes yes, the twin statue basically foreshadowed it, but I'll be in denial till the end.
What do you think about Riful-Dauf? Idk how it happened, probably a dumb story on that, but in this case I don't care lol, she looks cool as hell.
Oh yeah, I had forgotten they are meant to distract her. As for Chronos and Lars, I doubt they are stupid enough to try and sneak a hit into the Priscilla - Riful Doll contest. They are simply outmatched.
I could see them instead continuing to play observers. Especially if Team Ghosts & Awakened seem like they are enough to make Cassandra regain her senses. It seems like something they would do. Not to mention that it's probably not wise to challenge an Abyssal One; you might just piss her off enough to earn a spot on her menu.
But I'm hoping they will jump in, just to even their chances. Kinda odd how that number two (Octavia?) calls Cassandra a child. Age and everything, I guess, even though she could eat them for breakfast.
Now I'm wondering what Cassandra will actually do if she comes out of it. I hope she will not try to go after Priscilla for revenge or something. There's like three beings over there who surpass an AO (kinda funny how these are now mainstream), they will slaughter her.
That leaves her with the Ghosts. One would hope they will leave her alone, but again, AB, ergo, death so they may try to take her out. Or maybe the other ABs will gang on her to get rid of competition (small chances of success though).
Or Cassie will go: f**k this sh*t I'm outta here! And er, ride off into the sunset.
Tbh at this point i think the ghosts' best option would be to try to kill Cassy as fast as possible (unless they really manage to wake her up and ally with her) and waiting the end of the fight between Prissy and chibi-Riful hoping that the survivor (100% Prissy) would be very (but VERY!!!) damaged and try to kill her attacking all together, ABs included.
Unfortunately something tells me that Prissy won't be damaged at all and that the ghosts and ABs will find themselves in deep sh**,lol.
this theory of the child being dauph's and rifuls is a bit odd tbh. Why would it appear now? Why with only half its body running? Tbh i think dae collected what was left of riful and Duph and was ableto fuse them and maybe a part of Pryscilla's arms...
it is obvious that she was not just sitting in there, fully formed, especialyl since she lsot her legs. even priscilla had, in fact, been broken down and assimilated. that is why we saw her forming again from the mass instead of wrenching out.

riful doll does nto seem that shoddy if its back story is what we presume. considering half of riful was lying around in an area full of parastic bits and pieces. not to mention that remains of the infected twin was relatively close. in the end, the infected twin was a hellcat. besides, the destroyer itself defies most reason in the concept of claymore. it did not simply gain the combined power fo two abyssal, it far surpassed them, and yet it has no mind or will. also there is the hint of lingering thought within the energy of these beings. as revealed by priscilla's silhouette coming from hsyteria's remains.
however i doubt weakening priscilla destroyer would be that easy. we are talking about two entities that seem to generate a nearly incomprehensible amount of yoki. not to mention it devoured the life force of dozens of high level awakened too.
my theory of why the destroyer is in control is thus. the controller is not a mind. it instinct, like an animal. basically it is also incomprehensible to other, sapient awakened creatures. however, it does have the ability to be driven, by raw impulse, and that is its advantag.e it is able to focus on surpressing priscilla and the body, under its control, moves on reaction. priscilla, however, being a sapient thing, has the disadvantage of not being able to do this level of multitasking. not to mention priscilla is not exactly a bright cookie; her best plan to finding her memories was to starve herself nearly to death for seven years. she can only force her will against it.
and that is what cassandra is here to provide. it is not mere power, for if that was the case it would not aid priscilla, as the destroyer would jsut consume cassandra and cement its hold. cassandra is being drawn there now, and it is her own will melded with priscilla, though likely still from assmiliation, that will win the fight for priscilla.
not sure why people are kinda harshing on the riful doll though. so long as it has a plausible back story i have no problem. besides, if yagi really needed just a distraction, he could have simply had it that the awakened were able to survive just a bit longer, it would not be unlikely. this complicates the battle. cause riful doll likely tracked priscilla by her yoki and scent. and cassandra herself is emitting a small bit of priscilla here.

lol, that would be funny for sure.
thoguh the original plan was for a weakened priscilla to fight two opponnents. fight the destroyer, and then fight cassandra. no one saw the destroyer invading priscilla's reforming body the moment clare was released. now that battle is only mental, and we have a ravenous and isntinctual creature at full power running about. priscilla, if she left, would have been weakened. the destroyer's invasion likely dragged all of its own yoki into her body and likely filled in the gaps of missing strength quite nicely. not like the destroyer was active and wasting energy, it was dormant and seemingly content with it.
all they can do is to set up a fight between these three. though i dbout an isntant kill would happen on cassandra. remember, whne priscilla killed riful, she was quite literally on her last legs. cassandra would at least hold out, so long as the riful doll does not take itnerest in her.

riful doll is on another level here. she is an actual match. and no, priscilla is not in a weakened state. unless the destroyer someohow left all of its own massive yoki behind in a bag or something after it moved into priscilla's body. whatever was weakened or worn has been more than compensated for.
besides, all the other ones that got a one up on priscilla were pretty much killed in the same chatper they did. not only that, yagi made it clear they stood no real chance to begin with. it was obvious in those fight, from priscilla easily countering doufs giant spike ro her moving in on the non infected twin so easily. here....... no, this is not a lucky hit in like douf got, nor toying around with the twins. this is entirely different.
go back and read those chapters. you saw it in the energy of the fight, they were on borrowed time. yagi made no illusion of victory. here, here priscilla's brute force, which ended the lives of so many before and humbled even the mighty king isley, failed. this is not a lucky hit or keepign her back, this is a creature that took the brunt of that raw, rending strength and not only came out largely unscathed, but fought back.
I think it's only a matter of time before Priscilla kills zombified Riful and turn toward AB's and Ghosts.

And what we all see here is just initial success, it will not be long before Prissy kills her in pieces because she will retrain control of her body at some point.
I don't know what to expect out of "Riful" though. I loved Riful as a character, but it looks like this isn't her making her return to the series. This is an interesting turn of developments though and I am happy that Riful still has her influence, even if it's through some creepy doll looking thing
Because it's absolutely evident for story-reasons that Prissy will end up kicking chibi-Riful's ass.Quote:
Just give it up, chibi-Riful has no chance at all to defeat Prissy, not even a little bit.
Also i already said 100 times, but Prissy-destroyer may have uber immense power, but sure as hell she can't use it efficiently, and this is due to the very nature of the destroyer.
Also, it's important to notice that Prissy usually gets serious only when her emotions are touched, and sure as hell chibi-Riful has not arrived at that point yet.
It doesn't take a genius to understand that Yagi HAS to prolong the fight with chibi-Riful for story reasons, if not the whole scenario that he planned would be destroyed in an instant, 'cause if Prissy wins too soon it would be incredibly moronic to let her wait without doing nothing while all the others fight against Cassy,lol.Quote:
Prissy won't get serious until Yagi is ready to change the scenario.
It's also possible that Yagi will let Prissy join the "Cassy scenario" before the ghosts manage to win, but SURE AS HELL he won't do it too soon since it would be a moronic waste to introduce all those characters without letting them shine at least for a few chapters.

By the way, is that Riful Doll's true form? She just looks like Riful before she used her true awakened form. It would be interesting if RD has another form, for she would then be a real threat to Priscilla, but I doubt Yagi will go that way.
A poster above touched on what might have happened to Clare in the Blob. Mainly the physical breaking down of her body that Yagi doesn't look like he's going to explain it anytime soon.
I would think that an AB's flesh is different from a Claymore's, given that they emit yokis of a different type, not to mention the fact that an Awakened Being's flesh seems to be highly malleable. But somehow Clare managed to come out very much the same she went in, and she still says she's only 1/3 yoma (or was it 1/4?).
If her body was deconstructed, she would have merged/fused/something like that with the Destroyer, while somehow retaining her identity. Then she would have used the Destroyer's flesh as raw material to rebuild herself, but this would essentially make her something...not quite what she was.
So I'm assuming the above didn't happen, what with them needing to re-stitch her wound and all. Bu that raises the question of how, if her body was in there entire and untouched (which shouldn't be so, the Destroyer absorbed her in parts), she survived for all that time. Claymores also need to breathe, eat and all that stuff. Also how she managed to take control of something that much stronger than her, that wild and chaotic, and yet all Priscilla can manage is a stalemate. Or are these perks that come with the main protagonist job description?
I can get over the fact that the Destroyer didn't
convenientlydrain her life force like it was doing to the surroundings and instead merely absorbed her. But I had been given to understand (from what Galatea said) that Clare was basically fused with the Destroyer. Separating herself from it shouldn't be as easy as just Raki calling her, and, voila.
Claire's mind was CLEARLY the strongest inside the blob, so i guess it's possible that she rebuilt her body EXACTLY the same as it was before,afterall if it's possible to reconstruct perfectly thoughts,memories and emotions i don't see why it's not also possible to perfectly reconstruct a body.
This point almost surely will always remain a mystery since i doubt that Yagi will start explaining this in detail.....and tbh it's not even necessary, the story itself will confirm if Claire has changed or not after the merging.
......we don't even know how yoki works,lol.......
Btw Dark Night, Claire is 1/4 yoma.
About chibi-Riful, i'm curios not only to see if she can transform even more, but i'm also very curious to see her human form ........if she'll survive long enough....
