I really love this manga! The monsters are cool and the transformation to an awakened being is just awsome! I love the shounen characters (the cute ones)!
Right now I'm still courious what happened to Raki, Claire awakened form, and tons of questions in my mind... every chapter in this manga is just wonderfull... I think everybody who love fantasy art would consider this manga is to die for! O YEAH!

I've heard of this manga long before i started reading it. When i looked it up here in MU, it was the highest rated manga and so I was a bit unsure whether to read it or not since people tend to rate it either a 10 or a 7 depending if they liked it. When i started reading it, I just couldn't stop! excellent character development, storyline, and art. Better than Berserk in my opinion!

This manga is excellent. It starts off slow and then gets increasingly faster paced with an expanding of the world from the 4th volume with the intro of Teresa.
One must rejoice at the quality of the story telling and the drawing, compared to the author's previous work. Although it has flaws in terms of unapproached angles we must agree that it's a powerful work by a mangaka with relatively little experience.
I advise anyone and everyone to read it

alright, I take the blame. got sucked in good. art is on par with the story and fighting. it is just the right mix. further more, I found the mix of unnatural just the right amount. visual kind I mean. characters are well developed. had me confused for a while as they got lead in the story, but got under my skin soon. you get to feel for them. that is also the case with some of the villains actually. main characters arent almighty. you feel they are on a thin thread as the story progresses. sometimes the thread breaks.
what I am trying to say is that I dont really find anything wrong with Claymore. except an awesome storyline from now on. depending on what happens and how twisted it becomes, I will gladly give it a 10. for now, 9 it is.

This is a great manga. An Epic, like berserk. But faster pace and less offensive.

Claymore is goodness personified (or objectified? manganized?). At first glance it's not much: straight forward monster hunting, not so complex storyline, and a bit too few main characters (Clare and Raki).

But the longer you read, the more interested you became. The world start opening up, with more characters, more intrigues. The story starts having more layers of meaning. In the same time, our hero and heroines became more colourful and real.

The mangaka is also quite decisive too. YAGI Norihiro is one of the few storyteller who has the guts to kill characters when the story need. he remind me of George RR Martin , author of A Song of Ice and Fire series. I mean, he introduce a heroine, give her a life and past, then killed her in the next volume, just to make his point. He's good!

Before you dismiss this manga as a Shounen stuff, I recommend you try reading it until volume 6. You Will Get Hooked!

The only complaint I got against this series is the Shounen stuff. What it mean is that: the manga touch lightly upon sex stuffs and politics stuff. Come on! A fighting order composed of female only, that's the source of yuri right there. And romance between normal guys and Claymores are difinitely tragic tales. Politics? not enough details, both about the lands and the organization.

EDIT No1:
Spoiler (highlight to view)
13 vols come and go, and my complaints are still the same. The additional details are not being supplied enough. In fact, we know quite a bit more about inhuman enemies than the situation of human countries.

Raki has matured quite a bit. He's got to be quite a ladies' man. Alas, the way this manga were being crafted, I doubt he will get all the girls though. It's so not harem-manga.

One of the better manga. It's always interesting and very addicting. You always want to know what happens next. Definitely one of the must reads out there. Art is amazing and so is the story. You'll never get bored of it. I just wish there was more already
