Claymore Anime Ending, How would you have ended it?
We all had our share of bitching and squabbling over the ending. So let us join hands and discuss how each and everyone of us would have differed the ending had you been in possession of a highly influencial blackmail material you could have used in order to change the ending to the anime. Well either that or you can sync with the mind of others and ultimately possess the willpower of Claymore anime execs like Jean Grey from the X kids.
I for one wasn't happy with Priscilla getting away with her neck intact after Clare lived a life of a avenger to repay the debt Priscilla owe to her foster mother Teresa. If I was calling the shots I would have had Clare awaken into a abyssal one first off, then proceed with killing off both the wannabe hero boy Raki and his new found lover Priscilla. Oh but her rage won't end there. For setting up her friends on a kamikaze mission, I would have the new abyssal Clare pay a visit to the Organization and have her experiment with old black robed men by seeing what color blood they spill if Clare pokes them. She will force Rubel to find a cure for the hybrid children to turn back into humans, ultimately finding a cure to turn yoma back to human. Then let him join the ranks of the dead and distribute this miracle cure to every awakened beings she can find along with stray claymores she can find.
lol well the above is an example.
Now on a more serious note. Clare should have killed her prey when she had the chance. Raki shouldn't have interferred but instead watch the events flow as they're unfolded before his very eyes. Isley would have interrupted the fight by lending Priscilla a hand but Clare would then get unexpected helpers from the west, Riful and her pet dog Duph. While the abyssals battle against one another Clare would get another chance to kill her most hated yoma hybrid woman but loses her chance when Priscilla comes to her senses and transforms back into her abyssal form. Alicibeth attacks and fails miserably (Dies but not before showing a brief cut scene seperated throughout 5 pages showing the twin's tragic past) but the encounter leaves Prissal one in great pain and disadvantage, enough so that she must use her more human form to battle Clare like the time she got mopped around the floor with Teresa. After a long grueling battle, Clare is blinded and must use everything she learnt as a Claymore to survive against the odds. This means fusing the arm she borrowed from Ilena to use quicksword while maintaining a instataneous attack/observe mode as quickly or better than Teresa has. While she closed her eyes, she can see Teresa smiling at her from the other side of the grass telling her she can do it. Then she opens her eyes in a flash and deals the deathblow to the monster. Officially Clare becomes the number 1 Claymore and is then given a title Monstrous Clare or Invincible Clare or any of that equivalent. She finds Ilena and returns the arm. In it's place Galatea cuts off an arm and just grows another one, donating a Galatea's Left Arm to let Clare equip it instead of Ilena's arm. Galatea also tries to donate an arm but pass out due to too much use of her regenerative power so Deneve takes over and donates an arm then grows another one like a lizard. Blackout and then a cutscene appears somewhere distant from the heroes at the Organization's HQ. A lone claymore is seen thrusting her claymore into the black robes one by one as she hunts them, the upper torso is unseen until the last moment and Rubel smiles as he greets his death, while Raphaela just comments before his death. Korewa Tenchu da. One by one the stray yomas are eliminated through the efforts of the band of ex Claymores and with the absence of the Organization the yoma count doesn't seem to be going up but rather declining with open season hunting. They soon perish to leave a footnote in the continent's history. The surviving Claymores find a village somewhere rural and claims it their own paradise. They also go by another name which is altered between Valkyries or Amazons depending on how they like their new title.
Like the manga, with the 7 survivors saving Clarice and gang as an epilogue.
Lol you're not too creative. Gotta say something like... Clare goes super saiyan and destroys all the mega awakened beings that would have otherwise been fed to Riful and Alicia, then Easley shows up to take her on with Priscilla...
eventually leading into a bloodbath of Alicia, Beth, Galatea, Raphaela, Clare, Miria, Luciella, Priscilla, Riful, Dauf, and Miria (because it would turn out she got spared by Raphaela for having no arms anyway).
Oh and a giraffe would walk in and go nuclear to explode, killing Luciella.
<-- first post in a loooong time on ST... or anywhere for that matter.
I would've ended it with Priscilla, due to too much energy, implodes taking the whole northern region with her. Hence, no one survives the northern campaign.
With destruction of organization and claymore's living in cities as guardians, independent.
I would have ended it exactly like the manga: everyone's presence disappears, and THE END.
Of course, in time a second season could be made. And yes, I do feel a little sorry about those who haven't read the manga, but well, Berserk's anime's ending was even worse, they made me deal with it without access to the manga and I survived. So no worries.
I agree with Pina. I'd like to end it with some of the claymore-marked graves, and maybe a short shot of someone's cloak or some footsteps, nothing more. Not even the glimmer of a metal boot.

About the end, i would like much more if it didn´t portraided Isley as stornger than Priscila after it says soo much that Teresa was the strongest number one from history.Also i would pefer that all the forces(Riful, Luciela and the organization)also apeared.Last but not least,i wanted that they didn´t portrayed Raki that way.
