AboutEdit

The eighth anime episode of Claymore, adapted from the manga by Norihiro Yagi. The episode was first broadcast on May 22, 2007 and was directed by Hiroyuki Tanaka and produced by Madhouse Studios. It was dubbed by Funimation and released on DVD Volume 2 in 16 December 2008.

OverviewEdit

Teresa fights off the four Claymores easily, disabling Irene before defeating the other three. Irene grows frustrated, irrated that, while they had been using their Yoki, Teresa had not released any of hers. Teresa steps up behind Priscilla, raising her sword to behead her. Priscilla begins to cry and begs for someone to save her, but then Teresa sheathes her sword, saying that Clare had made her soft. Teresa takes Clare and the two leave the village, leaving Priscilla sobbing on the bridge. Irene goes to help Priscilla, but the latter releases all her Yoki and heads after Teresa in a rage. Irene panics and orders Sophia and Noel to follow her. When confronted, Teresa warns Priscilla to leave, but the enraged warrior ignores her and attacks. Priscilla is now powerful enough to cut Teresa, which is enough to force Teresa to release ten percent of her Yoki.

The other three Claymores arrive in time to see Priscilla being overwhelmed by Teresa. Irene then realizes that the extent of Teresa's power is much greater than anyone thought. Then, Priscilla realizes she has gone passed her limit and begs Teresa to help her return to being human. Teresa says the only thing she can do now is kill her, and Priscilla agrees to being killed. Teresa goes to behead Priscilla, but the younger warrior is able to cut off Teresa's hands before quickly decapitating her. Priscilla proceeds to fully Awaken and then kills Sophia and Noel after they try to stop her. She then chops Irene's arm off and delivers a deep wound to her chest before flying away. Crying, Clare walks forward and embraces Teresa's head.
