Today's post is on Claymore volume 15: Genesis of War by Norihiro Yagi. It is the fifteenth the long running Claymore series, you need to have read the first fourteen volumes to understand the story. It is 197 pages long and is published by Shonen Jump Advanced. The cover has Clare standing in the center looking at the reader. The intended reader is someone who likes dark plots, high action, and strong female characters. There is mild foul language, no sexuality, and lots of violence in this book. The story is told from third person close of the main character. There Be Spoilers Ahead.
From the back of the book- Galatea's plans to eliminate the Awakened former number 2, 'Bloody' Agatha, have failed, but the arrival of Clare and her comrades turns the tide of battle. In the aftermath, Miria decides to finally share her shocking discoveries about the true nature of the Yoma, of the Organization, and of the Claymore themselves.
Review- Lots of plot happen in this volume with Miria explaining what she has been researching. Claymores are weapons not in a fight with Yoma but for some greater foes on another continent. But that does not really have much to do with the real story of our hero, Clare. She want to kill Priscilla who is still traveling with Raki. Raki knows what Priscilla is but sense she has not eaten anyone while traveling with him, he leaves her be. Raki is still looking for Clare and he is retracing their travels from seven years before. The volume ends with the man in black who was Clare's contact in the Organization seeing her. I like where the plot is going and I look forward to seeing Clare finally meet Priscilla again.
I give this volume a Five out of Five stars. I get nothing for my review and I bought this manga with my own money.
