Art is amazing, but i wished i read this when i was a little older, when i first started reading this manga i got scared (lol..). But anyways, this manga is a masterpiece and it creates a change of pace when there was a strong female protagonist. It surprises me at every turn and the plot is incredible. Just waiting for the ending with clare and Raki~ wooo

Started off strong, but....

Claymore began quite strong. Amazing and erie art, captivating enough plot and some of the characters were great. The underlining journey of everyone was interesting.


Unfortuntely, it starts to get a tad repetitive and stretched out. First they fight against badies. But then there is a new even worse baddie around the corner. Then those worse baddies dies. But then there is supposedly an even much worser baddies that are even stronger and bigger. Then those baddies dies. And now...there are even WORSE and even stronger baddies...and all in between some of the baddies are fighting each other too.

It builds you up on these antagonists, but then the antogonist quickly goes down, with a new one afterward. It makes things a bit anticlimatic, with interupted buildup.

The new character intros -particularly the 'bad' Claymores- are becoming common are getting a bit much, and might feel like too much like fillers. And, gets confusing on who is who sometimes.

Overall, it is a good series. I like how unconventional it is, and it's always nice to see primary dominant female warriors (That aren't constantly half naked sources of fanservice or anything either). I just wished I would have showed more variety, something that had promise doing. I read up to the recent chapters, but I am losing my interest and am not as interested continuing anymore. Hopefully it will change for the better at some point.

Mixed feelings

I fell that the first 90 or so chapters were AMAZING!!! 10/10

Then I feel that after about chapter 90 the author has lost his touch and started adding filler crap that IMO is just to make more chapters no real importance in any of the fight or plot really.

They keep killing off characters and bringing in new ones which pisses me off so much. Reading new chapters after months of waiting for release, I find that I can't remember who is who anymore and the series has too many characters and names to make me care about any of them except the main three characters.

This series is awesome. It just keeps getting better. The action is just spectacular. And for once in a shounen manga the main character doesn't have a super incredible power and rather relies on skill and tactic. All the fights have something special to offer. Awesome series and might very well be my favourite shounen series.

I think this is the best manga I've ever read. No manga out there made my heart palpitate as much as this one. I read the whole chapters in one go, and if you do that you'll understand what i'm saying.

Cool dark fantasy series   
Rating: 9.0 / 10.0

A great dark fantasy series, no not quite as dark as Berserk but still what do you call taking children and turning them into 1/2 monsters to battle other monsters. Then there is the destiny of a Claymore which is to die on the battlefield or eventually turn into a monster and be hunted in turn. That is some dark tragic stuff man.

The art is great and it gets better and more detailed as it goes along. Some of the Claymores in the beginning look a bit like one another, but they get a little bit more differentiated later on. My only complaint is that sometimes it turns a little bit into a battle manga, but nowhere near as bad as some other manga that has one battle going on for what feels like 100chapters. Like another reviewer said its one of the few manga that keeps me interested and coming back for more.

The anime is also pretty good.

I think what the mangaka, Yagi Norihiro accomplished in this story (where alot of MALE mangaka in the same genre fail) is establish clearly strong lead female characters. Take for example mangas in like Naruto, One Peace, Bleach, D.Grayman, and Kurohime. Time and again the female characters in that manga are always shown in a weak submissive stereotypical fashion to their male counter parts. Even in Kurohime where the main character is a woman, as the story progressed her character devolved from being a strong female heroine to a hapless lovestruck teenage girl.

In contrast, the female characters in Claymore indicate that the mangaka seems to have a far more down to earth and respectful view of women. Then other artist in his field.

edit: an exception would be with Full Metal Alchemist, although the mangaka there is a woman

one of those rare mangas that keeps me interested. man the latest chapter 113, seriously blew me away.
Spoiler (highlight to view)
Just when we all thought Miria was dead, it turns out she somehow changed the hearts of the other claymores and they all turned against the organization.
way whaaaaaaaat?
anywho, i feel like the story itself is coming to an end. maybe not anytime soon since only one chapter comes out per month >.<

the art is simply stunning, its really good the expresionless mask the claymore have is annoying since well its expressionless . . . but none the less the art is detailed.

the story on the other hand is your usual shounen cliché parade one after another, but its still not that bad so i recommend it anyway
