Started watching this recently, thy did nobody tell me it was good?
I'm at episode 7,
Theresa is going to die isn't she? She has to for the plot to make sense.
I'm not there yet but was the ending that bad?
Things are starting to get kinda weird with the 3 big boss awakened Claymore's waging wars and raising armies, deeper thought processes than "eat guts" were already apparent in normal awakened ones but I can see this going out of hand.
Emotional moments get repetitive fast, I mean.
There are only so many times you can kill likeable support characters and do the "I am losing control... wait no" before you stop caring.
Show ending has one of the blandest fights in the series, couple dwith a "hook up" open ending for later seasons that don't exist (that would have to divert further from the manga).
Manga ending is also open, and just so bland it is almost bizarre.
While that happens a lot, there is also a lot of cases where expectations are shattered, like all the times Clare gets fucked up bad just when you thought she'd win. She rarely wins purely on her own.
