Long ago, Yoma, shape changing demons, took human form to live in disguise in human towns, feeding on them in secret.
A secret, nameless society has discovered a way of implanting Yoma flesh into humans to create hybrids powerful enough to defeat the Yoma. A hybrid's standard abilities include faster healing, limited shape modification, the ability to detect Yoma and other hybrids, and overall enhanced physical prowess allowing them to wield massive claymores, for which they are named: Claymores. For reasons not divulged, only women are selected to be Claymores. They are often chosen for implantation after being the sole survivors of a family attacked by a Yoma; this ensures their loyalty and willingness to endure the painful hybridization process.
The society sends Claymores to towns that can afford their fees to kill Yoma. The society is often strict and harsh; Claymores who break the rules risk being hunted down by their fellow warriors.
The story of Claymore follows the adventures of the beautiful warrior Claire, who fights demons while struggling to hold on to her own humanity.
A good story, but can get a bit confusing, since they present the reason of which Clare became a Claymore after a while and unexpected-like. But a good theme, original .
The characters are just amazing. Every single one of them is unique and very well "constructed". The fact that they all have different powers makes them all so different. Even tho they all have blond hair, the grade of it differs and tho they have some same characteristics,they are still so different.
Totally a MADHOUSE type of animation. A very specific one. Has nice graphics,effects and the details are pretty good. A lot of action,blood,slaughter.
Some soundtracks were kinda cheesy, but the ep and en songs were awesome. As for the sounds themselves,they were good and good quality.
One of my favorite anime, the only one i finished in 3 days and kept watching so much and kept wanting to watch. Anime shows don't really have that effect upon me so much, rarely find one that does. It really keeps you going.
