    Classic Action/Gore Anime, Must Watch for all fans of the genre
    I remember Claymore being extremely popular when it was released in 2007. Every convention, forum, and club were talking about it. But the die-hard fans of the series started to drift away from the series when it ended inconclusively 26 episodes later. An ending that strayed from the manga, yet still did not close any loose ends in the plot can leave a bad-taste in the mouth of a ...

    One of my favs and highly underrated in my opinion
    The animation style is different and fits the setting of the anime. Overall there isn't anything to really complain about. It's a gory action anime that explores a really dark themed story line about what these girls or claymores have to go through. I loved the anime so much and it's sad it only has one season. If you end up enjoying it you don't have to start from the beginning of the manga ...

    It has a bit of the Berserk feel to it I felt.
    I really enjoyed this anime a lot and really wish it had continued. One of my favorite ever. Gives off an old Berserk vibe a little bit. If you like swords and battles and crazy stuff going on then you'll probably enjoy this one. They need to make more!

    Important work of action horror and moving representation of female heroes
    Claymore is a highly-regarded classic that follows the journey of four Claymores. The beginning of the story centers on Clare, the lowest ranked of her kind, and through her story we meet many of her comrades. The most important of these is Phantom Miria, who in many ways is the actual heroine of the series, and one of the most compelling female heroes in all of manga and anime.

    The art and ...

    A half-demon, half-human "Berserker"
    She's got silver eyes that turn gold when she kills. Her profession is named after the sword that she carries. She bad-ass and she appears invulnerable. She gets a tag-along kid like the Berserker, although he's not as handy with a knife. The animation is 2D and well done, the voice acting is convincing, and the artwork is so-so. If you don't mind violence and gore, it should be fun!

    My all time favorite
    There's so much that I want to say about this series but I'll keep it a little short.

    The plot is rather simple. Girl kills yoma. Girl picks up orphan. Girl kills yoma. Girl protects orphan. You get the gist right? It's easy to follow and beautiful in it's own way. As the story progresses it stays simple and linear but you begin to feel fully immersed in the adventure, the violence, the ...

    We Could Use a Remake
    Claymore is one of my all-time favorite manga series, and it's easily my favorite action-adventure manga. For the most part, the anime series is a loyal adaptation of the manga. And so, for the most part, it's an outstanding series to watch, and I definitely recommend it.

    Our heroine Clare has an extremely dangerous job, and she's committed herself to a seemingly hopeless goal that is almost ...

    Bad-ass female warriors who know how use a sword
    Claymore features a large cast of strong female characters, which is a rarity in Japanese anime. It features 2 main characters: Clare, one of the female warriors, and Raki, a young boy who becomes her travel companion. The story centers around Clare's fight for survival against all odds and her quest for vengeance against the injustices of a dark medieval world that is full of death and monsters. ...

    Good Show , worth watching . this is my kind of anime !
    Although the ending was horridly done . I think this anime is a must watch for anyone who like myself prefers the Darker , more mature anime stories and styles.
    I watched all 26 episodes straight through and absolutely love it.
    It would be great if someone picked this up and finished the story .
    5 stars
