An awakened hunt that takes place in the Paburo Mountains. Referred to by Miria as a 異常貪欲者狩り[2] Ijō don'yoku-sha kari (Voracious Eater hunt). VIZ Media uses "hunting party."[3]


Awakened hunt led by Miria. Other hunt members are Deneve, Helen and Clare.


Before the huntEdit

Miria's bad impression of Clare continues from their encounter in Toriro. In an unnamed city near the Paburo Mountains, Clare arrives a week late with Raki. When Helen starts insinuating about Clare's relation to Raki, a melee begins. Miria breaks it up. But during the introductions, Raki learns that Clare is the lowest ranking warrior.

After leaving Raki at the inn, Clare leaves with hunt for Paburo Mountains.[4]

That night, Miria tests Clare with sparring match. Clare loses sword and faints. As she lies in rain, she dreams of Teresa.[5]

Engaging targetEdit

Next morning, hunt continues into mountains.

Man from "Lido"Edit

The hunt is met by man who claims to be from town of "Lido." And that he made original request to Organization. But Miria attacks.[6]

He dodges blade and awakens.[7]

Round IEdit

Regenerating armsEdit

Paburo severs Deneve's arm. Helen attacks. But no matter how many legs she cuts off, he keeps regenerating.[8]

But Deneve returns to fight, her arm also regenerating.[9]

Male ClaymoresEdit

Helen is surprised that Paburo is male. She expected a former female warrior.

When Helen asks why, Miria reveals that the first Claymores warriors were male, but that the Organization stopped making them, as they awoke too quickly.[10]

Round IIEdit

During the next attack, Deneve, Helen and Clare go down, Miria the last one standing.[11]

Round IIIEdit

With the others badly injured, Miria alone faces Paburo.[12]


Miria recovers her wounded companions. Paburo cannot score a hit. She stops and goes so fast, he only strikes mirages. He realizes that she must be "Phantom" Miria.[13]

But he suspects that her technique has its limits. After 30 times, Miria's Yoma Energy fatigues. He catches her.[14]

"True despair"Edit

But despite Paburo's promise of "true despair," Clare gets up to rescue Miria. Clare alludes, unknown to others, to her experience with Priscilla.[15]

Paburo strikes with extensible claws. But claws repeatedly miss as Clare approaches.[16]


As with her predecessor Teresa, Clare uses Preemptive Sensing to read Yoma power flow of opponents, anticipating moves before they happen. She avoids Paburo's attacks.[17]

As Miria watches Clare, she wonders if Clare developed her technique solely to fight Awakened Beings.[18]

Clare cuts off five of Paburo's six arms. But during the attack, she fails to switch back to her Yoma energy reading mode.

Paburo counter-attacks, hurling her back.[19]

Round IVEdit

Miria and Clare are both injured, but Paburo is nearly helpless, left with only his legs. They finish him off.[20]


On initial, overwhelming attack by Paburo awakened (former male Claymore), Miria suspects Organization of sending hunt into deathtrap.[21]

After Paburo is killed, warriors compare notes and discover everyone is half-awakened, plus viewed as a troublemaker by the Organization. Miria advises everyone to feign ignorance about being sent into a deathtrap. She further warns about warriors No. 1 through 5.[22]

The four friends touch swords and vow to survive.[23]
