More lists with this book...
Well I did love Galatea as a nun that was too precious! You go sister! < - - as it were…
And I will give that Miata might be a bit wackadoodle about the head region but she is strong for all that.
Still I found the battle with the big bad to not be as awe inspiring as some.
The first one that felt a tad bit drawn out...
(Literally drawn I suppose, since it's a manga... :P)
Just not enough OH WOW! or KAPOW AND HOW!!
But I see they're setting it up for the gho ...more
World: The art is great as usual with Agatha looking amazing. The world building here is solid. We spend time with the colored hair claymore (I forgot her name) and Miata and also some old people and places. Solid.
Story: I forgot to mention it in my last review but these extra scenes are exactly what this book needs. There are references to events that happen off page and some of it is essential and we get to see them here. Pretty great! The focus of this book shifts ...more
The last two bonus chapters were cool too. More insight into Claymore training and Clare. More Priscilla and Isley backstory.
Overall, just another fun volume.
I love that we get to see some pivotal characters’ past lives! Very intense volume! Ghosts do slay!
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 ...more

In this installment Miata and Clarice get orders to go to the holy city of Rabona to take out the rogue Claymore Galatea. When they arrive they find that a fierce awakened named Bloody Agatha (a fo ...more
"Yes, isn't it? To be honest, I think so too."
Volume 14 directly continues an arc just begun in volume 13, as well as heavily building off of developments throughout the series. This is not the place to start reading.
A Child Weapon (part 2-5) follows Clarice and Miata's hunt for the deserter Galatea to a familiar place: the Holy City of Rabona from volume 2. It's an interesting place for Galatea to hide and provides a nice backd ...more
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 ...more
Well this volume was AMAZING as good as volume 11, it's good to see the series back on track after volume 12 and 13 (13 was full of BLAH BLAH).
In this volume Clarice and her child friend Miata goes to kill a former number 2 but they find an awakened there. The whole volume was about fighting the nude awakened LOL but I really loved it and the extra 2 chapters were really amazing loved the Priscalla chapter the art was really outstanding and also Clare after Teresa's dea ...more
