Excellent series, though degrading lately

How have I not commented or even rated this before!?
I'm kinda sleep-deprived so this will be short. Either that, or I'll keep typing and forget to stop.
First, allow me to raeg at the anime adaptation. They went with a crappy (I mean REALLY crappy) original ending even though there was a PERFECT spot in the manga for the anime to end.

This series starts quite cliche (I mean, how annoying is Raki/Lucky amirite?) but as soon as the first awakened being mission is given, it goes awesome-tier. Later in the series, Clare is much less of a lead character, her friends playing as large or larger roles in the story. But they're such awesome characters I really don't mind this.

I am amazed that the mangaka of Angel Densetsu made another awesome series that is in a completely different genre.
Of course, angel densestsu is better as that's just god-tier comedy but this is still awesome.

What really sets this series apart is the time skip (which is how the anime should've ended). It was executed PERFECTLY. I've never seen a timeskip done this well, that I can remember. Everyone's just so badass. Even
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
though that character is still not that important.

The series has been kinda less awesome lately, possibly due to having too many ridiculously powerful adversaries. Also, I didn't like how
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
story ended up. She seemed really interesting and I get the feeling her story had more potential in length and depth. Same thing with
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
too. Who seemed like a great character to explore more of. I guess that's an appeal of the series, though. The chaos. Complete and utter chaos (not at first, but later beginning with the arc before the time-skip. And I guess there's a hint of this in Teresa's story's resolution).
Also, I'm divided over the twist and big reveal of what the larger picture is. Divided because ont he one hand it does seem kinda cool and original, on the other it seems like exactly soemthing I would come up with, which always annoys me :/
Oh! And a reveal in ch137-ish about the
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
, that they were all
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
implanted with someone close to them
Not only doesn't really make sense (if the experiment was discontinued how can the other three [four if you include the character from before the time-skip] have it?), it also very much reduces the awesomeness of those Claymores' accomplishment in achieving the state. And seems like a major coincidence that Clare just so happened to run into another one for the process to work.

Would have formerly rated this a 10 or 9.5, but 9 is the highest I'll go now.

Claymore is the best manga I've ever read. There has been no other manga that has captivated my heart and attention quite like this one. This story follows a young girl who be becomes a warrior out of her guardian's flesh in order to take vengeance upon the monster that had slain her. On her personal mission for revenge, she comes across many interesting and badass people on the way as she continues to become stronger in order to defeat her target. Claymore is a dark fantasy that will be enjoyed over and over. While the story progresses, feelings of boredom and repetitiveness may arise and it may feel like the author is just pulling things out of his butt, but Norihiro Yagi always manages to cleverly connect events in the story together. I love Claymore and I don't think I could ever stop loving it (unless he kills off a favorite character). This manga just keeps continuing to be more badass and exciting. Claymore is what defines a shounen manga. Highly recommended for anyone who loves beautiful and badass babes carrying and slaying more than they can handle. Readers will fall in love with the story and characters when they read this delight.

The beginning was pretty slow, I couldn't tell characters apart unless they had different hairstyles, the main character is so one-dimensional its sad, only one male character I can relate to who only appears intermittently later on and my favorite characters are dying left and right. But these can't stop me from saying that this is an amazing manga.

The art in later chapters gets amazing and if you can hang on until the revelation of what really is going on in the world of Claymore the story is phenomenal. Now I'm addicted and there's no turning back.

The only bad point this manga has is that there aren't more chapters yet.

I love how Clare develops. She goes from a regular badass warrior chick to a superbadass warrior chick.

Together with skip beat it's my 1# ranking Manga!!! Even if it's the Manga with the most cutted body's ever, it doesn't mather the plot is too good and you get used to it if you usually don't like that don't worry. (my lidle sister who is usually atractet to nightmares could still sleep calmlyafter reading Claymore.) And a freind of mine even read it at new years eve with the light of his i pod because the firework didn't spend enoth light. ; ] smirk i swear thats true!!!!

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

The plot is relatively linear but thats no flaw here. The action is great and this is one of the shounens where I absloutely love the teamwork and felt the all actions were complimentary. A tragedy in a fantastical setting, what more can I ask? Proud strong female characters, nice action and an original concept. all mixed in one package.

Go read it, you wont regret it !!!!

Although some people say that the after the begining the series got really boring. I on the other hand thought it was a really addicting series. I just couldn't stop reading it. I don't think this is a type of manga that appeals to everybody. But if you like the fantasy and fighting scene stuff this is definetly for you.
