This sixth installment of Claymore has Clare facing many Awakened Beings, both alone and with other Claymores and we begin to ascertain her strengths and weakenesses as well as more insight into her motivations.

She also meets up with the evil Claymore Ophelia, who has a nasty habit of chopping off Clare's limbs. Now, how is Clare going to deal with this???

This is the sixth volume in the Claymore series. This volume had some wonderful plot development along with some truly awesome fighting scenes. It was really excellent. Prior to this I have watched all of the anime series, the two are still matching up fairly well at this point.

This volume finishes up the story arc started in volume 5 where Clare (along with Miria, Helen, and Deneve) take on an Awakened Being. We finally get some hint into what the Claymore organization is all about. Miria, seems to have some sort of insight into the Organization that has made them determined to take her out. This is followed by Clare being asked to track down another Awakened Being. When she arrives she meets Ophelia (one of the cruelest and most disturbing) Claymore yet.

This was a really well done installment in the Claymore series. We finally learn a big secret about Clare. We also get to see some very awesome battles with Awakened Beings and meet some more single digit Claymores.

This is the first volume where we get some hints that all is not well between certain Claymore and the Organization they work with. There is a lot more going on than just Claymore fighting Yoma and I am eager to see how this unfolds in future volumes.

I continue to really enjoy the illustration. The fight scenes are easy to follow and I never get confused about who is who. The Awakened Beings are amazingly illustrated (and also incredible disturbing).

There is a ton of action in here. This was the first installment where some of the action scenes got so disturbing that they made me go ewwww a couple times. This is by far the most violent book in the series yet. Its also the best book in the series so far. This is the book where things really start to unfold.

Overall I loved this installment in the Claymore series. The story is really starting to broaden and we are learning both Clares secrets and the secrets behind the Claymore organization. The illustration is wonderful and easy to follow. If you are fan of action packed dark fantasy manga I definitely recommend checking this series out.
