Claymore is an anime adaptation of a popular manga based on a fictional world with medieval technology. In this world, humans coexist with creatures called Yoma. The Yoma are sentient, shape-changing monsters that disguise themselves as and then feed on humans. By consuming a human brain, the Yoma can absorb the victim's memories, allowing them to infiltrate human circles without arousing the suspicions of their victim's close friends or family. In order to protect humans from the Yoma, a secret organization has created an order of superhuman warriors known as Claymores. Thusly named for the immense claymores they wield. Villages being attacked by Yoma hire Claymores to kill the Yoma for a large fee.

  • First title I've ever watched that inspired me to buy the manga

    I know I'm very late to the party, but I felt driven to post. Claymore is, to put it simply, AMAZING. If you are debating whether to invest your time and energy into either the anime or manga version of Claymore, PLEASE DO SO. One of my most memorable anime experiences and one that left me wanting more. Great world, characters, art, and story. I also love that Claymore offers adult themes and isn't afraid to paint the whole picture, however brutal it may be. I am so glad I found this hidden gem!moreless
  • i dont know how to feel about this....

    The action is superb, the art and animation and violence are satisfying. Needless, to say i did enjoy it, i spent an entire day, and cancelld all my plans to finish, and i was entertained. but i did find a few flaws...

    I had great expectations for this series, however, was disappointed...

    Although action, graphics, and violence are good. The story, characters, and music are horrible.

    The music wasnt amazing, the cue for the music was always in bad places...

    The characters were expendable, always dying. I got attached to characters but then the next episode they died, very frustrating.

    The story was good up to half way. After that point i just wasnt interested anymore. The writers kept bringing more to the table, but didnt deliver anything...

    Claire didnt kill Percilla, they talked and feared this "Ice King" but didnt do anything to stop him. They were 27 fully awakened Yumas but they only killed 3...

    And my biggest complaint is Rocky, i mean he cried more than the girls!!! Thats a problem.

    My favorite without a doubt is Therssa, just beautiful and badass character.

    Im being honest, if they possibly continue the series to finish the story, then i'll be happy but but i doubt it...

    Sorry to everyone who liked it, but i dont think it is worthy of an 8 or 9 rating.moreless
  • Excellent series !!! must watch.

    I myself am a big fan of Claymore and a dedicated anime watcher, The Manga was excellent and i personally think they outdid themselves with the anime. The Anime was different from the manga but was not deviated too far from the plot of the series. Claymore is also one of the few series that I have enjoyed that has absolutely no humor to it, This does not imply that it is always boring and serious but it is more of a more mature and intellectual experience as apposed to slapstick humor. The Anime is categorized under fantasy and does not carry the weight of expectation for such a series, but i believe the simplicity of the world that Claymore is assigned to makes it that much better. There is such a thing as Outlandish and Claymore does not stimulate that aspect. P.S I believe reviewers shouldn't post negative opinion about series as it is only there opinion, by insulting the series in a public manner they can influence a persons choice in being able to watch it and form their own opinion. THANX :)moreless
  • Never Watched it? Don't.

    If you've never watched it, don't. Every scene in this show's English rendition is absolutely terrible. Plot is over-explained, setting is unremarkable, and the voice acting and script make me imagine crushing my hand in a vice is not so bad when compared with Claymore. Everything I love about anime is reduced and removed in this frankly boring and overworked piece. Though it has an average rating of 8.8 out of 334 votes, most of those votes must have been from either juveniles, uninspired Michael's , or otaku zombies.moreless
  • best serie/anime/manga

    claymore is one of my best series i've seen in my life. This is a fucking great work, anime was good but manga is the best way to understand everything about claymore. Robust and complex history, all amazing . 100% recommended.
