Hijack: "AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH WATCH THIS NOW NOW NOW NOW NOW NOWWWWWWWWWW!!!" ~illmannered Faeleia)

I just finished watching episode 26 of Claymore, it was pretty good! I think that's the end of the first season...

Watch it here: http://www.crunchyroll.com/showseries?id=2773

For those not familiar with this show, here's a rough synopsis:
Claymore is set in a world of Yoma, Claymores, and humans. Yoma are monsters that are kinda like zombies because they spread by eating humans. Claymores are half Yoma, half human mercenaries who kill Yoma in order to protect humans. The main character is Clare, who's a Claymore. She goes around and starts killing stuff. There's a ton of fighting in every single episode.


That's Clare, a Claymore (and featured on the September CR Badge!)
WARNING: POSSIBLE SPOILERS AHEAD



...

When I first saw a few episodes, it felt like another one of those "heroes who go from town to town saving the people" type of show, like Trigun or something, which it is. It was a bit cliched, but I endured and watched a bit more. I figure, it's not really the story setting that makes a show good. It's the subtle things, like animation, artwork, character development, music, etc that really makes a show good in my eyes. While Claymore doesn't have all these aspects, it's an action-filled show full of great fight scenes while bringing a softer edge in the bonds that Clare forms with Raki. I mainly watch it for the cool limit-breaking fights, but it's nice to see that they don't skimp on character background. They are all three-dimensional, complex beings that are driven by many different forces and emotions, and that yearning is what creates the conflict that moves the storyline forward. Each episode is surprising and keeps the audience on the edge of their seats. Anything goes in Claymore - major characters you don't expect to die, will die (kinda like in Fox's 24).

So watch the show if you like action and fantasy ;P

Claymore is one of the better Mangas and Animes about this year.
I was highly impressed with it, the art was great, the characters were in-depth and it just blew me away.
Can't wait for more.
