For Whose Sake (誰が為に, Ta ga tame ni) is the 25th episode of the Claymore anime series. It first aired on September 18, 2007.


The twenty-fifth anime episode of Claymore, adapted from the manga by Norihiro Yagi. The episode was first broadcast on September 18, 2007 and was directed by Hiroyuki Tanaka and produced by Madhouse Studios. It was dubbed by Funimation and released on DVD Volume 6 in June 25, 2009.


The fight between Clare and Priscilla venues within a volcano while Isley observes the battle. Priscilla, who does not realize that she is an Awakened Being, easily repels Clare, who she believes to be Teresa. Meanwhile, Jean and Raki travel towards the battleground. As Clare is about to get killed by Priscilla, Miria, Helen, and Deneve save her. They manage to reach a "catbird-seat", but Priscilla fully releases her power, as she had not fully awakened at that point. She effortlessly defeats the three Claymores. Determined to avenge Teresa, Clare fully releases her energy in an effort to defeat her.

Anime and Manga differences[]

This is already deep into the point in which the Anime deviates from the Manga. In the Manga, Clare fully awakens only to defeat Rigardo for how taxing and formidable he really was. Priscilla indeed does appear in the north along with Isley and they do find Raki. He accompanies them (especially her) for the subsequent 7 years. Clare and Priscilla battle each other at the end of the manga which was near Rabona.
