Claymore Chapter 87: Return of the Exterminators

Return of the Exterminators

I‘ve been waiting for this chapter since December of last year, and I’m quite surprised that there’s a new breed of characters that were introduced for the the very first time. Can’t wait to continue reading. I never thought there are other more powerful creatures other than the abyssal and the awakened ones. They are neither Yoma nor Awakened; they are the third type of grotesque beings…”DEMONS”…

Kaname Kuran

Kaname Kuran of Vampire Knight

He is the main character of Matsuri Hino’s Vampire Knight manga which has been serialized since January of 2005 in Lala Magazine in Japan, and then put into serialization in Shojo Beat magazine in North America by June of 2006. Kaname Kuran is a pure blood vampire who happens to be Yuki Cross’ elder brother, but is destined to love her romantically. Well, for those Zero-Yuki fans, this post will disappoint you because I’m for Yuki and Kaname’s love tandem.

Kaname and Yuki’s love may be a taboo for mortals, but it cannot be applied in the blood-sucker world. Kaname’s love for her sister cannot be reached beyond the depths of abysses in the monster world they live in. The brotherly love is only a faint reflection of the intensity of feelings and bliss everytime he is with her. The tragic disaster that happened to their parents ten years ago had marked him for the rest of his immortal life to love the only member of his family that was left.

Shinigami Lovers

The chain of Thanatos’ lover! It is an invisible chain used by a Shinigami the moment he takes the soul of a mortal who’s going to die.

Miku’s accidental death due to the system crash of the database of the Death World causes her to be literally tied up to Sei, a Shinigami, with a chain called the Thanato’s lover. She and Sei are bound to be tied up until she can fully live her entire life span. But what will happen if the two will fall in love to each other?

Well, this manga is another shoujo delight. It’s actually a quick read because it’s only composed of 12 chapters and a special story at the ending. If you’re used to seeing a very tall, gawky, and ugly Shinigami like those characters in Deathnote then you better think twice. Hehehe!

Love Monster

A very entertaining shoujo by mangaka Miyagi Riko. Hehehe! I just finished reading the whole series which is composed of 82 chapters. The monster world is indeed one of the most interesting and magnificent world the human mind had created.

Love Monster is definitely a one of a kind manga! It is very pleasurable to read and the main character is very funny. You can’t help but laugh your ass off as you’re flipping each page chapter by chapter. Miyagi Riko is a very playful writer. You’ll surely love Hiyo and Kurou, the most powerful love monsters in history!

My 1/3 Boyfriend

If you don't have the time to read a long shoujo series then you can probably read a one shot manga. My 1/3 Boyfriend is a quick read and it's definitely a delightful one especially for shoujo lovers out there.

It is quite popular in for it is ranked at number 27 among 600+ mangas in that site. Well, the male character is very appealing. You better check it out so that you'll know what I'm talking here. Ciao!

Vampire Knight

The best gothic romance manga ever! You can’t help yourself but fall in love with the nocturnal immortals who grace the pages in its every chapter. Vampire Knight is an ultimate page turner that will keep you at your feet as Yuuki’s hidden secret from the past is slowly revealed.

Kaname Kuran is the character I fell in love the most in this manga. Hahaha! He’s a pure blood vampire who saved Yuuki from a savaged blood-sucker during those cold snowy night ten years ago. I hope there will be new updates for this series. Can’t wait! Hehe!

Billion Girl

I’m quite disappointed that this manga doesn’t have any new updates. At first, I find its story very unrealistic, cliche, and too shallow. I didn’t even know why I continued reading it. But as the leading characters were slowly revealed, I quickly fell in love with them especially the long-haired guy Taiga. Hehehe! He’s actually a porn-novelist. There, I spilled it. Hahaha. The story is actually very interesting and a bit taboo. You should try to read it.


Whew! I’ve just finished reading 81 chapters of this manga. I started reading this one last week. But its story hasn’t ended yet. I’m still waiting for further updates on its website. If you’re into medieval and non-stop fighting stuff then this thing is for you. You’ll definitely love Raki and Clare, the main characters of the story.
