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.
>>human beings eat people and are evil and shit.
See wut I did thar?
Fuck you and I haven't even started reading the manga yet.
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.
You can still keep you're humanity and be an awakened one.
>>"the rules are ironclad"
Except ophelia was being really really open about the "Not killing human rule" Which is the same rule they used to kill teresa with.
Was this really needed?
This thread needs more Riful.
To be fair, Ophelia was batshit insane. Otherwise I think I got the point across.
No you can't.
>abysmal one of the east
no such being. Did you mean west?
eh, the most prominent awakened beings act more human than host of the claymores.
Riful is hot and you know it /a/
More Riful you say?
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.
Yeah my mistake.
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.
>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.
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.
It's dangerous to go alone, take this.
>they've been modified so they don't feel warmth or cold
Actually they do, but they are able to regulate their body temp to compansate for this with the exception of our fav Clarice
Most Claymores have a "built-in" hatred of Yoma, since many of them lost their families to Yoma.
hmm that seems plausible.
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.
Clarice is our favorite because she's a lovable fuck up.
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.
Our favorite Clarice? She's been, what 4 chapters?
Don't you mean Clair?
You better mean Clair...
>they're being treated like utter shit, why not say fuck it and awaken
Well they are women after all. Male claymores naturaly didn't take the shit and awakened.
>In b4 philosophical discussion about what constituents a monster.
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.
COWS PROBABLY SEE US AS EVIL FOR EATING HAMBURGERS BUT YOU DO NOT SEE THEM MAKING HALF COW HALF HUMAN HYBRIDS TO OVERTHROW US.
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...
They'd do it if they were smart enough.
Are you kidding me?
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.
So lets assume you get lucky and get a claymore into bed, the moment she reaches a squirting orgasm means you're fucked right?
loli, tentacles or both?
So long as you don't mind the "wtf?" factor? Yea, sure.
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
Jeez, read the fucking manga.
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
I don't think so, Tim.
Damn, Ophelia would fuck you up...
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.
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.
And I'd love every single second of it
Ophelia in bed; I imagine that would go something like Lucy Liu's character in Payback.
Hmm, I dunno. Infinitely flexible Helen sounds pretty good too.
