Cold open[]

As Cynthia regenerates Phina, the Ghosts destroy the awakened beings.[6]

Awakened demise[]


Astonished, Anastasia and Nike watch Deneve, Helen and Tabitha destroy the awakened. Suddenly, Dietrich, using her Sky sword, lands, bisecting an awakened.[7]

Scene 112a.jpg
Ghosts at work

Dietrich admits to her comrades that the Ghosts are deserters from the Organization.[8]

Anastasia and Nike help the Ghosts. But one awakened escapes.[9]

On her own[]

Yuma detects the approach of the runaway awakened. Cynthia, busy with Phina, cannot leave to fight.[10]

Yuma must fight alone. She uses her thrown sword. The swords spins like a helicopter blade and hits the awakened's legs, cutting them in half. Then she decapitates him. But the flying head nearly hits the other warriors.[11]


New male awakened[]

Anastasia, Nike and the other Ghosts rejoin the others. Deneve orders Tabitha to search for weak Yoma auras.[12]

Tabitha senses what may be a Yoma-making facility.[13]

Puburo Hunt[]

Deneve remembers what the Paburo awakened once told Miria: "But you made one major mistake."[14] The mistake was Miria's old belief that the Organization stopped making male awakened beings after the failure of male Claymore warriors. Deneve speculates that the Organization has continued to make male awakened up to the present day.[15]

New allies[]

Anastasia guesses the purpose of the Ghosts—to destroy the Organization. Anastasia offers to join the rebels.[16]

Which path?[]

The question arises: does everyone go straight to Organization Headquarters to save Miria, or the Yoma-making facility? But Deneve, honoring Tabitha's commitment to Miria, allows her to decide which path to take.[17]

Additional details[]


  • After Deneve says that Miria's "big mistake" was that she assumed that the Organization stopped making male awakened beings, a major hole in the Claymore storyline is created when Helen states she never saw an awakened male warrior,[18] despite all the ones she encountered in the Battle of the North
  • In Scene 27, Miria's "big mistake" is originally thinking that the Organization retired all the male warriors. The Paburo awakened still works for the Organization as an executioner of unwanted Claymore warriors.[19]
