Format: Paperback
Nineteenth volume in the Claymore series. A manga comics story about a land where people live in fear of powerful monsters, and the only ones who can battle them are Claymores. Women with big swords and special abilities.

This follows the usual manga comics format of being an A5 sized volume of black and white artwork. Which you read from right to left rather than the usual western method of left to right.

The volume is divided into six chapters and the whole thing runs for just under two hundred pages.

This is not a good jumping on point for new readers. Who should start with volume one. Those who have seen the anime version but not read the manga should start with volume eleven, which picks up where that one left off.

This volume picks up from where the last one left off, with Clare and friends caught up in a battle with two incredibly powerful foes. But a new ally has just come to their aid.

This plotline takes up the first four of the six chapters in this volume. It threatens at first to go the same way as the previous one in being nothing more than yet another big fight scene. But as these chapters progress it does manage to get the reader hooked on the fate of the characters. Thus it becomes decent character drama rather than an action led story. The fourth chapter ends on a surprising change for some of the characters involved. It means some things remain to be resolved, but it is an interesting development. Even though it does leave us still some way from a certain resolution, it does make you want to know what will happen next.

The final two chapters of the volume are stronger. As we come back to Miria and her quest to destroy the organisation. But she has a few surprises awaiting her. More fight scenes follow.

As Deneve, Helen and Clare attempt to escape from the rampaging Priscilla but they are delayed by the spawn of the Destroyer. With Priscilla attacking anything that gets in the way of her and Clare, she also turns on the Destroyer itself forcing it to reveal its true form. Meanwhile Miria decides that it is time to move against the Organisation itself but they are far from defenceless.

This is another very good volume of `Claymore' with some nice action and some very interesting cliff-hangers. The volume also ends with a quite emotional moment and leaves the story in an interesting position for the next volume. `Claymore' is a very nice series and this volume is no exception and is well worth a full five stars.

I have felt that the Claymore series may slowly be running out of steam in its content and unfortunately this chapter did nothing to dispel that. There is still room for that to change, but there will need to be a great deal of life and energy pumped back into the forthcoming chapters. I was excited to see the return of Priscilla in this chapter, but ultimately it ended up being a bit of a damp squib. There were some bright moments, but they were often countered by bland moments. I will continue to follow this story as I still firmly believe it has potential to come good once more. The development of Rubel's character, for example, is one that I shall be keeping a keen eye on. Overall this chapter did not really lift the story as much as it badly needed to be, but instead was more of a filler. However, with some imaginative tweaks and twists there is still room for more!

Wonderful Manga 2 Dec. 2012
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
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 ported to other online stores for sale.

Volume 19 provides the following scenes:

Scene 102: The Ashes of Lautrec, Part 7
Scene 103: The Ashes of Lautrec, Part 8
Scene 104: The Ashes of Lautrec, Part 9
Scene 105: The Ashes of Lautrec, Part 10
Scene 106: Phantoms in the Heart, Part 1
Scene 107: Phantoms in the Heart, Part 2

Spoilers ahead!

This volume opens with Dietrich saving Cynthia and Yuma by directing the Abyss Feeders to attack the parasitic yoma from The Destroyer. Meanwhile, Deneve and Helen flee Priscilla while carrying an unconscious Clare. Priscilla is hindered in her hunt by a parasite-controlled Dauf; Priscilla defeats Dauf and attacks The Destroyer for getting in her way. The "statue" portion of The Destroyer crumbles and appears defeated, but the form was merely holding in a massive black cloud of tortured bodies and emotional turmoil. Before Helen and Deneve can react, Clare is sucked into the black mass, along with Priscilla. Helen, Deneve, Yuma, Cynthia, and Dietrich are barely able to flee and head back to Rabona.

In Rabona, Miria draws her sword against Tabitha and leaves the city to take on the Organization alone. She intends to kill humans for the first time in her life: the humans running the Organization and ruining the lives of countless innocents in their lust for power and control. Miria strikes down every warrior called out to defend the headquarters, but she strikes without killing and only incapacitates the Claymores. Though this takes more effort on her part and is done at a greater risk, she is committed to protecting the innocent Claymore who have been lied to by the Organization.

Unfortunately, the Organization reveals a hidden trump card: the hidden Number 10 warrior, Rafutera, has been trained from childhood as an "anti-warrior warrior". She taps into the mental state of those who would attack the Organization and manages to cloud, confuse, and distract them. Miria becomes disoriented, and then dreams that she sees her deceased friend Hilda before her. While she smiles at her friend, Miria is cut down by the other Claymore.

"I wish everyone in my way... would disappear." 15 Nov. 2013
By para - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
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 anyone at all to survive. The all out action continues, more true natures are revealed this is a worthy end to this particular stage in the conflict and overarching story of the series.

The truly wonderful thing about Claymore is even with all the major developments, twists and closing threads in The Ashes of Lautrec and the preceding volumes it's still clear there is a TON left to the story and it's various mysteries and characters. Yagi wastes no time moving on to the next huge point of interest in Phantoms of the Heart (parts 1-2) by switching back to one of the few important established characters missing from the conflict in the West. Miria's assault on the Organization begins in a quickly escalating conflict that features some of the most heart wrenching moments in the series. I have no idea where it will go from here and I can't wait to find out.

A fantastic finish to the biggest story in the manga thus far and an equally strong start to our next tale.
Priscilla Awakens...again 7 Feb. 2015
By Karissa Eckert - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
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 as she travels east to take on the Organization. She meets the Twins and number 10, Rafutera...two secret weapons the Organization has kept hidden.

This was a decent book in this series. There continues to be a ton of action and the illustration was well done. I didn’t like this book quite as much as the last couple volumes in the series; it was a bit more scattered and not as much happened.

Overall a well done volume in this manga series. I continue to enjoy this series and would recommend it to those who like action-packed fantasy manga.
