Claymore 133

Clare and friends try to stop Cassandra's progress, while a new power appears on the battlefield.

Return of the Quick Sword!

Summary:
Clare, Miria and company sense the new powerful presence nearby, but the group continue toward their intended target Cassandra. Cassandra engages the group with her tentacle heads. Clare gets surrounded by the tentacle heads, but she cuts her way out with new and improved Quick Sword. Clare charges Cassandra and manages to take off the left arm of the real body. That plan for the group is to engage Cassandra and then have Yuma, Cynthia and Tabitha use their yoki-sync to slow Cassandra down and bring out her real personality so she's no longer on a beeline to merge with Priscilla. Unfortunately, Cassandra quickly regenerates from the damage and continues to move forward.

Meanwhile, a new powerful Awakened Being (whom I will call Riful 2 from now on) in the form of a young naked girl with long hair appears in front of Priscilla-Destroyer. Priscilla-Destroyer pets Riful 2 and tries to absorb her, but Riful 2 declares she hates Priscilla and sends Priscilla flying with a big punch. Riful 2 then fires rods out of her mouth at Priscilla. Priscilla takes to the sky and returns fire with her own spikes, but Riful 2 swats the spikes with her hair and then fires back with rods which start doing damage to Priscilla-Destroyer.

Lars and Chronos are watching from distance and can't believe the fight has turned out like this. The two then see that the other awakened beings watching the fight had left but Chronos knows where they are going. The awakened beings arrive near Cassandra and they plan to help Clare and company stop Cassandra.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

The battle finally begins, and things are getting more complicated by the chapter. Cassandra, being a no. 1 herself and one of Dae's products, is tough to stop as expected. Clare managed to land a hit but it'll take more than that to stop Cassandra. It'll be interesting to see what sort of help the other awakened beings will provide. They are no friends of Clare and company, but they are probably not in hurry to get kill or absorbed by Priscilla either.

Meanwhile, Riful, or the successor or Riful makes quite the entrance, giving Priscilla a mega-punch and some rods. The rods are Dauf's power, so it looks like Riful 2 has a combination of powers from both old Riful and Dauf. Maybe she's Dauf and Riful's child? The blank, cracked mask face is pretty appropriate for someone who is seeking payback. The new Riful is dealing damage to Priscilla, but we all know Priscilla's regeneration ability is unequaled. It's good that things are picking up again in this series.

  1. The thing I wonder is could Claire have killed Cassandra. With her being so accurate she should have been able to remove her head. Yet she only gotthe arm. Was it that Cassandra dodged the attack or was it on purpose that Claire only got the arm. Seeing as I believe the plan was not to kill Cassandra but to awaken her mind out of the trance she is in. Did Claire miss on purposem . and how strong is clair now.she must at the very least be a number 2 power. Wonder if she got a power up. Grrr. So many questions.

  3. I think Clare has become the strongest one out of the seven now.. Although miria and the others have become more powerful as well had more experiences in live combats,, but it took 9 of them (Miria, Helen, Deneve, Cynthia, Tabitha, Yuma, Anastasia, Dietrich and Nike) and two abyssal ones (Cassandra and Roxane) to damage and kill Hysteria. While Clare could take on and deal more damage to an abyssal on her own. Even Roxane was not able to take on Cassandra both in her claymore and awakened form. So I think that Clare has the power of a Number one, and maybe she should awaken and be a new abyssal one to defeat Cassandra, Priscilla and Riful 2. Hehehehe.

    1. Clare is the main character, and thus she should be the strongest.

    2. It has nice journey for us to see Clare slowly become this powerful. The days of her people making fun of her low rank and power are gone!

  4. Finally Clare manages to equal Irene's skill level. Though considering that Irene was still outclassed by Teresa and Priscilla...Clare still has a ways to go.

    Good job by Riful 2.0. It certainly could be her child considering the fact that it was pretty...simplistic in its wording. If there's anything that Riful was it was fairly eloquent. Hopefully her child gets to survive for a while though in this series she probably doesn't have much hope.

    So how fast do the male awakened get beaten in the next chapter?

    1. Clare is a lot stronger, but I don't think she's as strong as Teresa, or the current Priscilla. If Clare reaches Teresa's level of strength then the manga might be close to over.

      Chronos and Lars... probably not gonna survive long if they are really going to fight, but Chronos is the scheming type which will help their survival.

  5. Clare was most impressive this chapter as she slowly learn what this new body of hers can do. One thing we have yet to see is Clare use her original skill that she develop when she was still under power.

    The appearance of Riful 2.0 was frigging awesome! The combine power of Riful and Dauf was awesome to see all use by Riful 2.0! The question is will the next chapter explain how Riful 2.0 came to hate Priscilla and is she the child or some kind weird combination between Riful and Dauf.

    1. I loved Riful 2's mega punch on Priscilla. "I hate you" and then KaPOW!!! I hope she has Riful's personality though, since the personality was what made Riful interesting.
