Dec 5 2006 Claymore (Book 5)
Teresa, a powerful Claymore, saves a young girl from her bandit captors and leaves the child in the care of some villagers. But triumph quickly gives way to despair when the situation takes a tragic turn, and Teresa is forced to kill a human--an act that will condemn her to death at the hands of her own kind.

5.0 out of 5 stars Keeps Going Strong Nov. 25 2011
By Amazon Customer - Published on
Claymore, Vol. 5 / 9781421506227

I've actually watched the complete Claymore anime first before getting into the manga; I'm really liking the manga source material, as it rather closely follows the anime but has a few extra details and world-building information along the way. I definitely love the clean, crisp black-and-white artwork, though I do still have to remember the right-to-left / back-to-front reading.

Volume 5 provides the following scenes:

Scene 22: Marked for Death, Part 5
Scene 23: Marked for Death, Part 6
Scene 24: Marked for Death, Part 7
Scene 25: The Slashers, Part 1
Scene 26: The Slashers, Part 2
Scene 27: The Slashers, Part 3

For those following along with the anime series, this volume corresponds to:

Episode 8: Awakening (Scenes 22, 23, and 24, and carried over from Volume 4.)
Episode 9: Those Who Rend Asunder, Part 1 (Scenes 25 and 26.)
Episode 10: Those Who Rend Asunder, Part 2 (Scene 27, and carried over into Volume 6.)

This volume finishes the Teresa arc as she faces off against Priscilla, and segues into the Slashers arc with Clare fighting alongside Miria, Helen, and Deneve against the Awakened Being.

The only thing I don't like about this volume is that I preferred the more angular facial artwork for Teresa that was on display in the anime -- I still think the rounded face in the manga looks very child-like. If you liked the anime series, though, I am certain you'll like this manga volume; I recommend it for extra detailing and world building.

5.0 out of 5 stars Pure Awesomeness Jan. 19 2011
By Felicity - Published on
A while ago, my friend lent me the first six volumes of Claymore.

To be quite honest, I was put off by the first and second volumes.

I thought Claymore was extremely boring. It's just about a claymore named Clare killing monsters that pop up. Is there even any depth? So what?

Then came the third volume. HUH? So the story is now centered on a new character... wait is it going to keep jumping around to random Claymores? I don't really care for these claymores at this point, all they do is kill monsters... is there even going to be a deep storyline?

Being really bored, I wanted to stop reading Claymore at this point.

Then things kind of picked up in the fourth volume. My reactions changed from being bored to lukewarm.

and YES!! YES YES YES!! The fifth volume was what set everything into motion!! The deep storyline, the motivation, the characters - everything was being pieced together! It finally made sense! Freaking AMAZING!! It gave insight into Clare's character, and what happened in her past that made her become a claymore and Now I was hooked!!

Claymore is such an amazing manga!! The storyline is really quite freaking addicting and deep! Volume 5 really have hit a high point!

Now this is one of my most favorite manga ever! I am addicted!! However, I'm pretty sure if I only had the first and second volumes at hand without reaching to volume five, I would have dismissed this manga and never touched it again. And I would have regretted that!

The rest is history, as I sit here staring at my collection of 10+ volumes of Claymore manga.
4.0 out of 5 stars Another continuing adventure of the Claymore girls fighting the Yoma. Nov. 9 2013
By Joseph J. Truncale - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I began reading these Claymore stores by Norihero Yagi beginning with volume #1. This volume #5 Marked for death, Part 5, 6, 7 and The Slashers, Part 1,2,and 3 continues the story of how Teresa, who is the strongest of all the Claymores, has been marked for death by the powers in charge for helping the human child Clare. We also get to meet more of the Claymore girls in this series. They are Miria #6, Helen #22,Deneve #15 and of course Clare #47. We also find out that there are 47 regions and depending on your skill level and experience, you are assigned a certain number rating. The lower the number the most experienced and stronger you are supposed to be to fight the Yoma.

They are hired to kill an especially strong and vicious monster which is a male voracious eater. The rest of the story is about how they are battling this monster, which will be continued in Volume #6.

In conclusion, if you are a fan of the Claymore series you will enjoy reading this volume.

Rating: 4 Stars. Joseph J. Truncale (Author: The Samurai Soul: An old warrior's poetic tribute)
5.0 out of 5 stars Theresa... How I adore thee! Oct. 8 2013
By Geoffrey Pursel - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Finally beginning to detail the origins of Clare and the love of her life, Theresa, this is an unmissable volume. Learn the details of what drives Clare to continue to face down insurmountable odds, even though she has always been considered weak and pathetic. Learn of the most heroic of all Claymores, cut down far to soon, and for reasons that make you begin to doubt the benevolence of the Organization.
In other words, if you haven't already, order this volume, It will definitely lead you to purchase the next... and the next... Heck, why resist, just select all of them!
5.0 out of 5 stars "I'll have to strike you down for good." Aug. 25 2013
By para - Published on
Not only does volume 5 build off of the previous volumes, but it opens with the direct continuation of a story started in volume 4. This is not the place to start reading.

** This review contains no spoilers for volume 5, but will have spoilers for previous volumes. **

Volume 5 starts with Marked for Death parts 5-7. Teresa has bested the hunting party sent for her, including the young wildcard Priscilla. She now faces the choice of what to do with them, and how it will affect her new life with Clare. The entire Marked for Death story is unpredictable and incredibly told, with some amazing panels and spreads that give due gravity and consideration to hard hitting dramatic moments. There's a ton in this story that will be echoing through the rest of the series.

The Slashers (parts 1-3) returns us to the present, as Clare is given an opportunity to test her limits by being added to a hunting party to go after the deadliest kind of Yoma - a voracious eater. We have some really interesting new characters and plot reveals here as well as the standard high level of action.

Overall another great, compelling volume in one of my all time favorite manga series. Highly recommended.
