4.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic as usual, but seven years...?, 5 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Claymore 13: Volume 13 (Paperback)
As much as the art was as stunning as ever and the plot quite strong, I still find it difficult to accept that seven years have passed since the battle of Pieta. I understand that perhaps Claymores do not age, but the problem is, it doesn't feel like seven years.
This made me wonder, why did it have to be seven? Couldn't have even 3? Sure, the Claymore claim they have hoend their skills in that time, but when you think about it, what can you do for that amount of time? Clare wasn't worried about Raki at all in those seven years? Whether he was alive or dead?
Also, hoiw would they have suppressed their yoma energy during the first few years?

These are questions I kept thinking about as I read. Aside from these issues, the story is taking a pretty interesting turn. We're introduced to various new Claymores, which have yet to shine. I know already that Claymore focuses on many plots at once, but I'm hoping that these develop properly and are not just included to fill space.

Apologies for the barrage of questions, but if you read this volume you'll see what I mean. I can seee Norihiro Yagi really trying to create a sense that time has passed but it's just difficult to believe because of how unchanged everything is.

This review is from: Claymore 13: Volume 13 (Paperback)
This thirteenth volume of the `Claymore' manga sees the continuation of the battle against Riful of the West. As the Organizations warriors find themselves outmatched they are rescued by the ghosts of the past while Clare discovers some more information about Priscilla. Elsewhere Clarice and Miata get a mission and Clarice learns just how powerful the strange and unhinged Claymore actually is. This volume also sees a couple of flashbacks to the pasts of Teresa of the Faint Smile and Phantom Miria.

This is a very good volume of `Claymore' with some good battles and some advancement of the plot. The volume also includes some more information about what happened when Isley fought Luciela seven years ago. The two extra chapters revealing more of Miria and Teresa's pasts were a bit random but they were entertaining and it is still nice to see the likes of Teresa and Ophelia in action again. The Clarice and Miata storyline is looking very good as well and it should be interesting to see how this develops.

Overall this was a very good volume of `Claymore' and I am very much looking forward to the next few volumes.

4.0 out of 5 stars While you were away, 13 May 2012

This review is from: Claymore 13: Volume 13 (Paperback)
Thirteenth volume in the manga series Claymore. This is not a good jumping on point. Those who haven't read it or seen the anime should start with volume one. And those who've only seen the anime should start with volume eleven.

It follows the usual format for the series, being an A5 sized book of black and white art that you read from right to left rather than left to right, and which runs for one hundred and eighty nine pages.

And it's divided into six chapters.

The first four of these pick up the story from the end of volume twelve, as the returning ladies can't help but get involved in the fight they chanced upon. This leads to them learning some interesting and important information.

Meantime Clarice, introduced in volume twelve, has her hands full looking after the powerful but unstable Miata.

Both these storylines move along nicely enough. The former setting up interesting things. And the latter adding depth to both characters.

There would be more plot advancement if all six chapters focused on these two storylines, but the last two are actually flashbacks. The first features Teresa. And the second is a tale of Miria's past. Both of these show the characters learning important life lessons. And both are very emotional. The second does have quite an impact in this respect.

Another excellent volume in an entertaining series.
