The tenth chapter of Claymore by Norihiro Yagi, first published in the May 2001 issue of Shonen Jump.

Short SynopsisEdit

Having regained her claymore, Clare is able to fight more efficiently and takes off one of the Yoma's arms. It soon becomes clear that she is straining herself, however. Her wounds have reopened and she is nearing her physical limits. She is soon pierced again and the same fate meets Galk and Sid who try to help her. Using Galk as a springboard, she takes the Yoma's other arm and, with a bit of effort, eventually deals the killing blow.

Detailed SynopsisEdit

The True Monster HuntEdit

Facing the Yoma's charge with her sword, Clare dodges it with acrobatic maneuvers and removes its swordarm. Galk comments that this is the true power of a Claymore, but both Raki and the Yoma realize that Clare is pushing herself in order to end the fight quickly. She turns out to be too exhausted to prevent the Yoma from impaling both her arms and slamming her down on the floor from a height. Galk manages to free Clare, although he is stabbed in the arm, and tells her that she can use their lives in any way she wishes to defeat the Yoma.


Galk and Sid both attack, but are impaled in turn by the Yoma's claw. However, Clare leaps over Galk, as he holds the claws in his body, to remove the Yoma's remaining arm. Roaring, it throws itself onto Clare's sword, pushing her back, and preventing her striking its head. Drawing her Yoma power, Clare twists her sword round in the Yoma's body and slashes up to bisect its head.
