Still awesome

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

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.

An origianl story that Doesn't Sell Out It's Heroines! ^_^ !

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 >.<

stunning and predictable

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

A terrific read from beginning to vol 19 and wanting more...

I admit the The beginning (first few volumes) were kind of dull, it didnt "hooked" me in as much as I would like. But as the story progressed I could not keep my excitement down at all. The story develops into this masterpiece that keeps you wanting more. Good character development and all. The art is good as well. Love how there is a 2 saga!!!

As I enjoyed the anime, the manga is so much better in comparison, especially when the anime had a rushed alternative ending that did not fill my satisfaction. I really would like to see a remake of claymore anime.

From the start...i really liked it and was looking forward to reading new chapter...but now... I just kinda lost it... I mean, this part is uninteresting for me. No Clare. No that-boy-following-her-around (over the time I even forgot his name...) and... talk talk talk fight talk about something.... Maybe if I read these last chapters once again and at once... but I don't really feel like it (Because of what I've read.)

Before, I'd have rated it 10... but now...

I don't think I much like the direction it's taking, but maybe I'm just worn out from reading it all day. In any case, it's very good and well worth reading.

There is nothing wrong with the start - I like how it builds from fairly humble beginnings to something much larger over time - although I'm a bit worried that it's getting large to the point that each battle has to take up a lot of chapters, and while that's fine reading it all at once I'm not sure I have the patience for that following it as it's released.

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.
