Just started claymores and one question I have, they're being treated like utter shit, why not say fuck it and awaken go join the abysmal one of the east and have a better chance of surviving?

Do they enjoy being treated like expendable trash and fighting a shit load of monstrosities?
>>
They've got a plan, don't worry.
>>
Short answer, yes.

Long answer, yes they do enjoy being treated like expandable trash and fighting a shitload of monstrosities.

I think it has something to do with being able to keep their humanity, more than Awakening and getting revenge.

Seeing as how most of the Claymores who left the organization are currently among the most powerful, I doubt any of them need to awaken.
>>
Awakened beings eat people and are evil and shit.
>>
They're going to fake being dead.

There, fuck you. You were begging for spoilers.
Don't ask about the plot of a shounen manga because everything eventually gets resolved and explained anyway.

Most, if not all of them are recruited as orphans at a very young age. It wouldn't be odd to assume that they aren't brainwashed to a certain extent.

They have said over the course of the series things like "the rules are ironclad", "it's my job", or "it's what we were made for"

Of course, they eventually become more aware. The higher ups at the organization, when discussing Galatea, say that they become more troublesome when they get older, and that the ideal Claymore doesn't live for very long.
>>
>>10048241
You can still keep you're humanity and be an awakened one.

Except ophelia was being really really open about the "Not killing human rule" Which is the same rule they used to kill teresa with.

Humans don't walk into town and say "Gee, I think I'll kill off every living thing in this village" just for fun, then eat their guts.

Well, most humans wouldn't.

>>10048433
Yeah my mistake.

>>10048425
The abysmal of the east looks pretty human, even the "Superb" Guy who I've yet to see transform looks human, they only eat humans and shit but oherwise they're pretty human.

The child soldier concept more or less fits. It's the only thing they've ever known, they've been modified so they don't feel warmth or cold, don't enjoy food (except for helen), and can't even enjoy sleeping in a bed. They've been trained to be expendable killbots, the idea of "retire and live the easy life" isn't something they know. Heck, I wonder if they can even read.

The only difference to some of the humans we've seen in claymore is the gut eating.
>>
I think it's the fact they want to fight Yoma beings because of their past histories, and by awakening they fail completely in that respect.

Actually they do, but they are able to regulate their body temp to compansate for this with the exception of our fav Clarice
>>
>>10048535

Most Claymores have a "built-in" hatred of Yoma, since many of them lost their families to Yoma.
>>
>>10048535
hmm that seems plausible.
>>
>>10048505
Yeah most humans go "I'll just kill the entire village" just like the bandits that teresa killed where going to do.

In b4 philosophical discussion about what constituents a monster.
>>
>>10048492 they only eat humans and shit
WELL GEE, THAT'S NOT A BIG DEAL AT ALL.
>>
>>10048589
Clarice is our favorite because she's a lovable fuck up.
>>
>>10048547
That's their choice. Awakened beings can't choose not to eat people's guts. At least we haven't seen one that can. Even if they were "good" Claymores before, the personality seems to change without exception.
>>
>>10048545

Our favorite Clarice? She's been, what 4 chapters?

Don't you mean Clair?

You better mean Clair...

Well they are women after all. Male claymores naturaly didn't take the shit and awakened.

This very statement is one of the underlying tones of the story. In fact it's one of Yagi's favorites. Going back to Angel Densetsu's main character.

Nope, Clair's my favorite cuz she was the "underdog" everyone thought would get killed.

Now she's turning out to be a total badass among Claymores...

You gotta remember that most of them (Clare, Ophelia, Helen) were victims of some loved one being killed by a Yoma. Its safe to say all of them are, therefore they've got motivation to kill Yoma right there and working for the organisation is in their best interests since they are the ones with the master plan.

Clarice needs some love

Actually, most males awakened due to the process being similar to orgasm.

And we all know what guys can be like...
>>
>>10048629
They'd do it if they were smart enough.
>>
>>10048636

Are you kidding me?
>>
>>10048636
I think this is the general consensus with the entire Claymore world.

Clare was the first and only person to join the organisation of her own free will.
>>
I'd awaken for Riful if you know what I mean.
>>
>>10048649
So lets assume you get lucky and get a claymore into bed, the moment she reaches a squirting orgasm means you're fucked right?

So long as you don't mind the "wtf?" factor? Yea, sure.
>>
>>10048729

No, it is a process "similar" in feeling to an orgasm.

Not that is "is" one.

And most men don't last very long, even as Claymores! ;p
>>
>>10048729

Jeez, read the fucking manga.
>>
>>10048729

no, orgasming doesn't auto-awaken you. Might not help though, since losing control of emotions seems to be bad.

It's that the releasing youki is like orgasming for dudes. So they'd "fap" until the awakened.

The feeling they got while awakening was similar to the feeling you get while orgasming.
So if you got lucky you wouldn't be in any trouble, except if it was with Ophelia (mai waifu) then you'd be fucked
>>
>>10048818
>>mai waifu
I don't think so, Tim.
>>
>>10048818

Damn, Ophelia would fuck you up...
>>
>>10048729
The sex itself would probably kill you anyway. Claymores must also have that problem of finding someone that can "accept them without breaking" that Riful complains about. Of course in Riful's case it's on a much bigger scale.
>>
>>10048720

I would think most of them would have signed up on their own free will for revenge against the Yoma. the only exceptions would probably be the #1 and #2 as well as Miata.
