More fighting, more abysmally strong creatures running about and destroying the world (will there be anything left at the end of the series, or just a bunch of people floating about in space, looking at the asteroids around them and thinking "Well, this could have gone better"?)

And in the midst of it all, a lone warrior runs off to fight against the organization which started it all. You can tell for sure that for her, this *could*, indeed, have gone better.

Claymore, Vol. 19 / 978-1421540788

I'm a very devoted fan of both the Claymore anime and the manga. I love the crisp black-and-white artwork, and while I realize it's not for everyone I personally think it's a perfect style for graphic novels. I find the action easy to follow, and the faces and body language to be surprisingly emotive. The story is complex and compelling, and I'm all in until the series finally finishes. I own this volume as a Nook Book e-book, and I assume it will shortly be por

"I wish everyone in my way... would disappear."

Not only does volume 19 directly continue a major arc started in volume 18 the series in general builds off all that has come before. This is not the place to start reading - go back to the beginning.

The end chapters of the massive The Ashes of Lautrec arc (parts 7-10) finish the Earth-shattering conflict between the greatest powers in the land. The ones left fighting are terrifying and near omnipotent, and a huge sacrifice will be required for anyo

Claymore is a manga about Yoma who pretend to be human in order to kill and eat the humans. The Claymore are the hybrid of the two stronger faster but still human with the ability to slay the Yoma which they do for a price. They travel from village to village slaying Yoma with nothing but the sword on their back using the Yoma abilities but slowly turning into a monster that they hunt. When the time comes a Claymore will send a black card to another claymore to be slain before the Yoma takes ove ...more

This is the 19th volume in the Claymore series. This series is rumored to be wrapping up later this year with volume 27. While the last two books in this series were amazing, I felt like this one lagged a little.

Helen, Deneve, and Clare continue to fight the Awakened Priscilla. Priscilla is pretty much going on a rampage in her effort to get to Clare. Their fight is further complicated when the joint Rafaela/Luciela evolves into something even more deadly.

After the above we fellow Phantom Miria

We begin with Chapter 102: The Akuma(devil) That Swooped Down.
The Abysmal Eaters have been set loose, and show their fearsome abilities. The drive to eat. Sending monsters after monsters. This just will not end well.
Meanwhile elsewhere Galetea reveals to Helene and Deneve Phantom Miria's plan to take down the organization. Then off into the action we shall go afterwards.
Good gods this has to be the crowning volume in this series because it has left me with my jaw on the floor, and my eyes wishi
Four to five stars for Claymore in general because ... SO MUCH! I guess individual volumes range from three to five, but at the moment I can't properly rate them individually because I ploughed through the manga re-reading a lot and just inhaling the newer volumes. I couldn't stop.
Super intriguing dystopia, mysteries over mysteries without getting less interesting, extremely creative body horror (ranging from beautifully other to horribly disgusting), carving your own path (sometimes, most often

Oh man that was an intense volume!
More action and reveals than I am used to, and damn did it make for a fun read!
What will the Ghosts of the North do with Clare inside a monster and Miria in trouble with the organization? And how will the organization respond to the threats going on in the west? Damn but I can't wait to find out!

Se le está yendo un poco de las manos la historia. Aún así, pese a tanta acción descontrolada, al final consigue anclar emocionalmente lo leído con un final realmente descorazonador. Espero que no sea cierto...

What a dramatic series! Claire is such a strong female character and I loved to see how much she grew throughout the series. Her story was so tragic and heartbreaking along with everyone else's.

Ah. My god. This series. It gets crazy.

I don't know why Miria chose to fight the organization alone, but alone she went. Perhaps one of the toughest episodes, that finishes with a "this cannot happen"
