Claymore – Chapter 92

Soul Seal

Soul Seal

Brief Summary

Clare finds herself reliving a memory. It was the first time she met Rafaela, right after saving Jean from Riful and almost defeating Dauf. This time, she fights the former #2 (and #5 in Clare’s time) Claymore.

Fight me

Forced to fight, Clare used Flora’s signature attack, Windcutter. However, the lightning-fast draw proved useless against the experienced Rafaela.

Wind Cutter Fail

For that mistake, Clare died.

Death

Fortunately, it was only in the mind. Imagined… if that makes it any easier to comprehend.

All in the Mind

Still alive but the danger of death still there, Clare and Rafaela prepared for round 2 of their fight. This time, Clare will use her final trump card, a technique that she hasn’t used for the past 7 years.

Power up

FINAL TECHNIQUE

Clare used the signature attack of another deceased Claymore. Quick Sword (also known as Swift Blade) from Irene.

END

Victorious, Rafaela entrusted her memories and feelings to Clare, the last thing she did before her body fully awakened.

Take Them

Everything

When Rafaela-Luciela woke from its hibernation, everyone noticed… from Riful to the Organization to the survivors of the Northern Campaign.

Even a certain civilian with a not-so-loli awakened Claymore did…

Impressions

Judging by how Priscilla had grown, I suppose Raki failed in his promise to keep her from eating humans. After all, he said he was willing to be consumed by her, knowing that he can’t prevent the inevitable. Oh well, he’s not a character I’m too fond of… but I am envious of his shiny armor.

So… about that Clare vs. Rafaela in dreamland… It seemed so out of place. But, for the sake of a future fight, I’m overlooking it. However, I can’t help but notice that Clare doesn’t have any signature attacks of her own unless you count her partially awakened form as one (youki reading isn’t an attack). So far, she stuck to Flora and Irene’s moves. I guess when we have that huge Riful/Dauf vs. Alicia/Beth vs. Abyss Eaters vs. Miria/company battle, Clare will do something unique… Still waiting for that…
