A brutal scourge stalks the land. Yoma, monsters driven by a hunger satisfied by only one quarry - Humanity. The dark breed knows but a singular foe: Claymore. Human-Yoma hybrids of extraordinary strength and cunning, the Claymores roam from skirmish to skirmish delivering salvation by the edge of a blade.Thus continues the twisting tale of Clare, one such sister of the sword driven by pain in both victory and defeat. Whispers of conspiracy fill the air, but the gravest peril is not hidden. Enter Ophelia, a Claymore of joyful cruelty with a zealot s devotion to the massacre of all who have Awakened. And Clare will suffer as her prey. Flesh will fall from bone, but there will be no rest until Teresa is avenged.

On the face of it, Claymore is simply another anime series about the hunting and slaying of nasty monsters. It is well directed with fast moving action, some excellent animation, a straightforward plot, good screenplay and some interesting characters - and on this level it succeeds quite well. However, look a little more carefully, and one finds that it also possesses some quite satisfying depths in certain areas.
The artwork is unusual and extremely effective, employing bold drawing of the characters, often contrasted with pale colours occasionally fading almost into black and white, and incorporating monochrome tints and pale washes. The colours are well chosen, however, and this approach makes it even more striking when vivid colours are suddenly introduced for certain scenes. The lighting is also notable, often dramatic and sometimes spectacular.
Superficially the plot premise is fundamentally simple and often violent, as vicious, evil monsters are slain by claymore wielding heroines, but the character development is quite strong - many of the main characters displaying unexpected complexity - and ethical issues, as is frequently the case with anime, are not far beneath the surface. In fact, much of the series' plot and to a certain extent the characterization, revolves around the concept that power wielded in the name of Good can be corrupted into Evil if it becomes too great. That the characters in the story are morally aware is demonstrated by remarks such as Jean's : "I have no intention of compromising my honour just to live a long life".
Qualities like these manage to lift this Anime above the average, and, in my opinion, will further enhance the reputation of those brilliant women at Clamp, and all those connected with turning the manga into anime.
My initial four stars becomes five because I like the artwork so much, but even if the art doesn't work so well for you this is still an above average series.

It's all killer and no filler in this dark-fantasy anime series, as episode after episode features bands of half-human/half-demon female warriors in a medieval setting hacking limbs and heads from purple-blooded creatures known as Yoma that terrorise small villages, eating the inhabitants.

There's more however than merely copious bloodletting in the storyline, the Claymore warriors acting under the command of a mysterious Organisation who seem to have a secret agenda of their own, sending selected warriors out to the wilderness to face even more deadly creatures out there. The amazonian Claymore warriors also have their own issues to deal with on account of in-fighting over rankings, and the always constant danger that over-extension of their powers will eventually transform them into Yoma themselves one day.

The pace never once lets up in the 26 episode series, the Madhouse production team constantly finding inventive ways to animate the story with meticulously designed and coloured settings, dynamic action sequences and an appropriate score that lifts it in all the right places.

Even within the limitations of a battle-heavy storyline, there is a lot more personality revealed in the individual backgrounds of Clare, Teresa of the Faint Smile, Raki and several of other warriors, all of whom have their own histories and personal traumas that bring them and the series to a powerful and touching conclusion.

Spread across 6 dual-layer discs, Manga's DVD collection gives the series an outstanding widescreen presentation, with the original Japanese language track in 2.0 and an acceptable English dub in a powerful 5.1 mix. Extras are not extensive, with repeated textless opening and closing sequences, but there are good informative interviews with the director and his production team, and galleries of the impressive design elements.

I checked this out as I like anything knights/ninjas/samurai based and thought the idea of female knights with special powers called claymores would be fun (I enjoyed Visionaries as a kid). The first couple of episodes were nicely animated but didn't really have me gripped as I thought the boy was a bit whiny and the concept of killing the same monsters every episode potentially dull. Then there's the second story-arc which follows another Claymore and has a neat twist at the end that got me very interested. The third arc goes back to the title-claymore and it becomes clear it's not going to be the same type of monster every week. It also becomes clear that the Claymore organisation is not as noble as it first appeared and from this point on the show goes from strength to strength with some excellent battles and character development. The show only drops off in quality towards the end where it becomes clear the writers rush in order to finish the show, whereas they would have been far better off leaving it unresolved in the hope of finishing it off with a seond season or OVA. Hopefully one day we'll get to see a reinterpreted ending in the stlye of Fullmetal alchemist: Brotherhood. Otherwise we'll have to settle with this great action series with a slightly different setting and approach to most of the shounen anime around.

Recommend it to anyone who likes anime really. The story is pretty solid, the characters are all very likeable (except for Rocky, hes likeable but he has moments where you want to leap into the tv and smack him in the face. I wont give anything away but he gets pretty annoying towards the end.)

I wont comment much on the plot ill just say its very good and has some nice twists, if i say more it will take away from the viewing experience. maybe its a personal prefrence thing but i liked watching it knowing absolutely nothing.

The action is very fast paced with a decent amount of gore, nothing that will make you cring and look away. There are a lot of nail biting edge of the seat moments, no character is guaranteed to make it out of a fight unharmed, you always get the sense that they could perrish at any moment which is very good, not something you see too often.
Someone stated in their review that the series lack character development which i think is 100% un-true, you learn enough about all the characters to care about their well being and mourn their loss.

The series would be perfect if it didnt leave you soo hungry for more, the story has a lot of room to continue. i hope they make more but knowing mad house who knows (still waiting for hellsing ultimate to be dubbed -.-)
