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

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

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.

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 !!!!
