    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 ...

    Claymore Review (Highly recommend)
    Really enjoyed this anime, it has been a fair few years since I last saw it but it has left a lasting impression.

    Dark + gory (ish)
    Good action, decent story BAD ASS females too.

    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 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 manga-enthusiast.

    Don't get ...

    Clare + Claymore = Classic
    Probably one of the best semi-old animes out with a good original-like story. Claymore also is probably one of the first "you have to read the manga" animes out that truly didn't get the ending it deserved. Even with the manga being completed (and it's left in a way that the story could continue) this would be a great story to have fully remade (I'd ideally love the studio that did Blood-C to do ...

    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!

    This is a classic everyone most watch!
    loved it! watched this a few years back and enjoyed rewatching it again! ^^
    I enjoyed watching a Medieval setting to this anime, very shounen, and the animation is very unique, in a good way.
    if only they'd make a sequel to it, left me wanting more :/

    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!

    200's classic anime shirt series
    one of best early 2000 anime that ever came during that time that had a open ended ending not to say that bad but the manga does not really finish the series. what i do like is the fact that the music is really good. the story centers around claire and while she may on paper seem like the weakest claymore but through all determination she becomes one of strongest. her strength takes her on a ...

    So glad they added this
    This anime is really good and recommend it to anyone who likes violent fights and good character development. Also what is enjoyable about this show is you really see how the character improves and grows throughout the show. Seriously who doesn't wanna see a bunch of awesome girls slice monsters with huge swords.

    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 ...
