Description
In a world where monsters called Yoma prey on humans and live among them in disguise, humanity's only hope is a new breed of warrior known as Claymores. Half human, half monster, these silver-eyed slayers possess supernatural strength, but are condemned to fight their savage impulses or lose their humanity completely.

Best Shonen Manga

Finally, a shonen fighting manga where all the characters have well-developed backstories and the main character is actually SMART! If you're sick of lunkheads like One Piece's Luffy and the childish moralizing of Naruto, than here's a dark fantasy fighting series you could take seriously.

When I read the first two volumes I thought it was a bit repetitive, and the story didn't seem to be going anywhere. However, I kept reading and now I can honestly say, "Damn it!" Because now, I wait eagerly every month like an opium addict for the next chapter. Spectacular action, suspense, twists, ciffhanger. It's all included.
As a guy, I'm happy to see that female characters are not presented in a biased and sexist manner that is found in many other mangas (oh let's say 90% of them).
Not everyone would enjoy Claymore that's for sure. But what's more certain is that over 90% will. Chances are, you're going to LUV this!

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 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!!!!

one of my favorite mangas out there. Great plot, great character development, great art. Just one thought (always had this one), why is this a shounen? i would categorize it as seinen but hey. kick ass manga

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 !!!!
