Honestly, there's no reason in even debating what plans are stupid because all the plans they could come up with have slim chances of success. I'm not even gonna delve into why or why not because it would require me to put too much time and effort into something that i'm already pushing the envelope for concerning time and effort. Not only this but my sadness about Riful trumps all other matters.
Goral, do you actually see any way for Claire to beat Priscilla without awakening and becoming a super-AO, so basically without becoming "a being who exceeds the abyssal ones?"
I really cannot see any way for it to happen without Claire no longer being Claire.
Miria thread for details, otherwise I don't see a point of your post (unless you find saying something without reading any arguments or presenting any yourself sensible).
I believe she can defeat Priscilla without awakening because of what Deneve said (i.e. that "Claymore's youki is increasing almost to the limit even at normal times" and according to other translator to "maximum limit"). If what Deneve said is true (and there's no reason to not believe her) then it should be possible for Clare to access the power she would have as an AB without actually awakening.

On a different manner, can someone explain to me why is it OK to show a completely naked little girl and Priscilla's boobs but not Octavia's? Yagi purposefully hid them behind Octavia's hair and whips, WTF?

Also, Miria again acts like a retard when she shouts to everyone to get away. They know that already, especially Helen who already felt it. Plus they all have eyes (not to mention that Miria is not too good at sensing youki,no better than H&D).
It's true that i generally stay on the last-chapter thread since it's more probable fo find something new, but it's not that i have any problem responding to you on the other thread,lol.
The funny thing is that i responded here since, you know, the topic came back here.
Also, i already had this discussion about Miria's plan about how to oppose Prissy, it's not that i haven't already expressed my opinion on the matter (it's the same for you).
Also, before speaking about other people habits, why don't you try instead to correct your own habit to escape the discussion everytime you say something very "discutible"?
You complained so much about Isley proposing such "great plans" but i'm still waiting how you justify your marvellows ideas "let's tell Riful" and "let's follow the AEs and do a direct attack to the org", 'cause after all the complain that you did, to me those plans seem 100 times more idiotic than what Isley actually did.
It's easy to complain, come up with absurd "great plans" and pretending like it's nothing hoping that no one notices, right?
Oh, and let's not forget that a few posts before you even insulted me as a person (not what i was saying, but ME) but you pretended AGAIN like it was nothing, right?
1) How do you know whether or not i've read the arguments unless you assume yourself to be me...
2) As i've said before, ALL of the possibilities have a minute chance. I've thought about this and I really don't want to waste time on what I already consider an inconsequential topic.
3) Most people arguing about the stupidity of Miria's plan are letting their emotions do the talking, seen when you bash Miria for shouting at everyone to get out of the way when it is simply just a natural response out of care for one's comrades.
We can never be 100% sure priscilla is alive or dead but from the looks of it, it doesn't even seem to be priscilla anymore. It seems, rather, that priscilla is a shadow of herself, no doubt consumed by some sort of force. Same goes for Riful who seems to have fused with Dauf(don't care to remember the spelling).
I think the more pressing issue is that of the nature of the awakeneds. Is it that the more powerful they were, the more control they had over the hunger? I feel so and am I the only one that feels that this quasi-alliance will have a shaky continuation plot-wise. By that I mean:
- if the alliance is indeed honest-to-goodness, then it leaves readers a bit dyspeptic since the nature of most awakeneds versus humans/claymore have been quite hostile.
- if the alliance is one of betrayal, then some sort of unbelievable miracle must happen in order to either make the alliance solid or put the awakends in their place.
- if the alliance is temporary, one wonders what happens to these awakened. After all, they simply came out of the woodwork just observe these anomalies. The reader is then left wondering what role could they possibly have in the future, if any at all.
There's a lot more important things to thing of rather than if Miria acted like a fool or not. I don't feel I need to mention them as I am hoping this changes the direction of people's thought trains....
I've never seen so many awakened beings in one place. O_O
Anyway I quite liked the chapter and that is way there has been a lot of action.
About the new awakened being (and I'm sorry to make this question a bit late. XD), is she Riful or something that took her form?
1) Read about logical disjunction and go back once you do.
2) Then why are you even posting here about it? Most importantly why are you replying to something you consider as pointless anyway even though allegedly you don't have time/will for that. "I know I'm right so there's no point to write anything more. Nuff said.", lol.
3) Doesn't change the fact it's redundant (read: retarded).

Btw, i was thinking, Prissy won't be able to collect back all the energy of her arm since 1/3 has been surely lost (Histy's part).
So i was wondering,Cassy now has just her power or has added to her power even the power from Roxy?
If Roxy's power is lost Prissy would take back only 1/3 of her lost power, but if instead Cassy has even Roxy's power, than she could be even stronger than what we have seen in her previous fight, this could be a problem for the ghost+ABs alliance, but maybe a good thing if they are able to "awake" Cassy and bring her on their side...........but still, we are just talking about the power contained in one of Prissy's arm, tbh imo the only REAL hope to defeat Prissy is IF Claire really has an immense hidden power and would do some sort of "awakening".
My opinion on this doesn't matter doesn't change, in the end Prissy is simply too strong for everyone, if there exists a power that could surpass her is only Claire's hidden power (but we don't know exactly how strong that power is, at this point only speculations are possible).
Cassy, chibi-Riful, the ghosts and ABs' team will be able to MAYBE put up a desperate fight, but they have no real hope to defeat Prissy imo.....but this doesn't mean that they have to give up without at least trying to play their strongest hand.
Btw, i know that this eventuality is completely out of your imagination, but i already responded on the Miria's thread exactly like you wanted. Crazy,right?

Hmmm, no one know for certain what chibi-Riful is exactly since the manga has yet to reveal it, but one thing that it's obvious is that she is an AB that must be connected somehow with Riful and Dauf.
From this point on, all kind of crazy speculations are possible for now,lol.
Ok have an exam like in 2 days so wish me luck(I need it much).. And don't worry I'm taking a break.. But anyway something interesting Moie has mentioned which is the alliance and I more like go with number 3 but will discuss more about like in a couple of days.. anyway Malak, I think she has more than 2/3 o the arm because Cassandra did eat part of Hysteria, and indeed it's not only the hand that holds the power, it's the awakened as a whole so it's like a double round for Priscilla if she gets Cassandra.
*shrug....it's not like we haven't seen Riful naked a few times, including her front...perhaps the times that we saw her, it was "past the radar", and he didn't want to push his luck with his publisher (presumably) again with Octavia.Quote:
Priscilla, physically though, isn't much older (15-17 post-Awakening I'd say, though as a warrior, she looked 13-14 -- filling out the middle-school years alongside young Raki....how she always appeared in my head) at all, so really, I don't know....I'm not sure what the rules are with how much Yagi can show, but considering the knowledge of some chapters being censored without any real indication (Dauf's butt, the Rabona AB etc), I imagine it's something he's forced to do over what he would prefer.
In any rate, as for debating Miria's plans....it's silly to worry too much about whatever she plans on doing; why? Because Claire is there ....and if Claire is there, then we know Miria has her "get out of jail for free" card, and everything is going to be okay .
Although I ranked it 7 after rethinking I should've given it 8! Oh well.. Unless the mods can help me..
1) Logical disjunction literally has nothing to do with what you've done which was make an invalid assumption.
2) I'm posting because I want to steer it away from an argument about Miria. I didn't want to have to do this but every time you refer to the DIFFERENT thread, you're literally fusing them. If there's a thread that already discusses Miria's planning, then why do it here?
3) This point silly as NO ONE DIED when she said this.
I'd honestly rate this chapter a solid 8. I don't know if anyone remembers but there were times when it was extremely frustrating to read chapters every month just to be left on crazy cliffhangers with seemingly little substance in my opinion. The last... idk maybe 5-6 chapters have left me generally satisfied considering they've been pretty weighty.
As for the chapter, I've rated it 3, although 2 might have been a fairer rating. Totally pointless chapter.
Octavia, I'm disappoint
Barring haxx techniques, a no. 2 cannot defeat a no. 1, and the difference should even be more marked when they awaken. Somehow though, Octavia is confident they can bring down this "child".
She should be able to tell the difference in yoki size. Is her sensing...apparatus broken? Or is it just a case of stupidity or hubris? Just once I'd like a villain that is genre savvy.
But I love how in the end Cassandra is unimpressed. Like they are flies just buzzing around. Next chapter she will probably come out of her stupor, go to town on the ABs for a bit before realizing they all meant well, and they will hug and it will rain unicorns and rainbows.
Odd how she is still under by the way, despite Priscilla being beaten to such an extent. I'd have expected the link to have broken by now.
