  • Made me read the manga
    Kept my interest the entire way through and actually touches on plot points that make you want to read the manga. The whole 'dissenting from the organization' trope kind of got repetitive but it was a good way to bring humanity to the characters. The unpredictable deaths are refreshing and keep you in the mindset of the Claymores.

  • not bad but not great
    strong female characters. So-so character development. Interesting enough to watch, not interesting enough to be really good. Lots of disposable character introductions. The story line felt hollow. It was cool to see so many female characters though.

    Just read the manga you degenerates
    If you don't wanna lose brain cells, just read the manga. Skipped every scene in the manga that built up character. The ending just gave me a migraine. PLS READ THE MANGA I SWEAR TO GOD YOU WILL GET THE ACTUAL STORY

    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. ...

  • Defintely watch this, then read the manga.
    It's hard to review this without making allusions to Berserk. I think the biggest difference is that while Berserk is more or less a slow buildup, Claymore moves a pretty fast pace with action and lore consistent throughout. I've seen some people say the ending is lackluster but I honestly disagree. While the ending does curtail some major plot points from the manga, it is still serviceable and ...

  • I liked it. Most of it.
    This is a super good action anime full of awesome fights.

    The good points:
    -There are so many awesome characters.
    -There are so many awesome villains that I love to hate.

    The not-so-good points:
    -The boy, Raki, is absolutely helpless and stupid.
    -There isn't going to be a season 2!!!!! (nooooooooo)

  • My "Deserted Island" Anime
    I don't have much to add to the numerous glowing reviews that have already been given by other people. Only that I'm really happy that Crunchyroll has the series now and I'm hopeful even more people will get the chance to experience this amazing anime series.

  • An utterly awesome anime
    Every show has it's downfalls. But Claymore has few and scattered between a story of epic proportions. The main nitpick of Claymore, is that there is not enough of it. Characters are flushed out with full backstories, the action is a joy to watch, and the evil is external and internal throughout the story.
    Recommended to watch. Especially if you enjoy stories of something akin to a vampire slayer.

  • THE BEEEEEST! WATCH IT
    One of my all-time favorite and still is! The depth of the story is great and interesting. The characters great! I really enjoyed the character buildup and art. Everything and I mean everything is great about it! I 100% recommend! Not to mention this is an all strong female group!

    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
