When a shapeshifting demon with a thirst for human flesh, known as "youma," arrives in Raki's village, a lone woman with silver eyes walks into town with only a sword upon her back. She is a "Claymore," a being manufactured as half-human and half-youma, for the express purpose of exterminating these monsters. After Raki's family is killed, the Claymore saves his life, but he is subsequently banished from his home. With nowhere else to go, Raki finds the Claymore, known as Clare, and decides to follow her on her journeys. As the pair travel from town to town, defeating youma along the way, more about Clare's organization and her fellow warriors comes to light. With every town cleansed and every demon destroyed, they come closer to the youma on which Clare has sought vengeance ever since she chose to become a Claymore.

Enjoyable, but just a cock tease for the manga. Read that instead. Shit ending.


Underrated anime, it’s a great story with great characters and it needs more attention.


i want a season 2!


Underrated, pretty damn good


Expecting Claymore to have any plot development whatsoever was a mistake. Basically just an endless training arc, that doesn’t give progress


Really cool premise and characters that look a bit samey (can get them confused for each other). Good action but filler is not great.

Eh, I found it an uninspiring excuse for violence. It was too slow and unengaging for me. I may come back to it someday but I doubt it.



    I make bad encodes and whine about subs and if I'm feeling particularly memey, I make bad subs too!
