well it's a good manga no doubt. But I rate it 7. A little bit too pathetic, and although good i find the art somehow repetitive. I enjoyed it, but i would not go as far as to compare it to berserk. It doen't have its depth, its dialogues and the art in berserk is much better - of course in my opinion

i read up to volume 12 in a go, absolutely fantastic. i checked the series stats and decided to read this manga, i wasn't let down. this is among my 5-10 best manga. many people have compared it to berserk and say it's better, yea claymore is good but when it comes down to the basics, gore, action and plot, berserk rules.
nonetheless it's still a great manga and quite new, theres still more to be seen from this manga.

The story starts off to what would seem like a typical "hunter hunting demon" kind of manga, but a magnificent weaving of action and story help advance the plot quickly, as well as provide some awesome action scenes. The plot immediately begins a rising action, and rapidly rolls towards the climax.

It's a definite smash hit, and I foresee it to easily become on the the hugely successful titles to hit North America when people wake up to it.

i was surprise that the author of this made Angel Densetsu, just by the drawing i didnt recgonize it but then i compare them and you can see his improvements. story starts off real good. always some action never any boredom at all. you have to pay attention to know whats going on. if you skip a chapter you might as well go walk around in a dark tunnel because you'll be lost, thats how fast things happen. i have nothing bad to say about this manga at all. ITS THE TRUTHHHHHHH

I agree with most people here... This CLAYMORE is just one of the GREATEST manga i ever read. There are many characters and their history along with the story line itself. I first know of CLAYMORE was though the anime review on animenewsnetwork, and guess what i got hook right from the review. Then i went to look for already released episode, later on i caught up to the manga. I finished 13 volume in 1 night!!!! Completely hook and could not get my eyes off it. I am right now at the lastest chapter and can't wait for the next one come out which may take another month.

Any manga fan out there, trust me, CLAYMORE is a MUST READ and WATCH... you won't be disappointed or rather than that you may completed addict to it ;)

Finally, a Good Fantasy Manga

This and Berserk are probably the only good fantasy manga around right now. At first this might seem like Berserk with a girl that can transform into a monster, but further along you discover a lot about the past of the Claymores and are drawn into a great fantasy tale. My one complaint is that this is probably too dark to be in Shounen Jump but other than that this is a great series that I recommend to fans of the shounen genre

This is possibly the best shounen action manga I've read -- it borders on seinen because of the depth the series gains as it progresses. The characters are simply amazing. Each one of the Claymores is a unique warrior with a complex history. Part of the pleasure of reading this manga is discovering the stories behind the different Claymores. They aren't treated like women usually are by shounen and shoujo manga -- they're purer, in the sense that they're people, not mere gendered stereotypes. The women in this manga are real women -- well, except for the super powers, but you get what I'm saying. They are honestly and perfectly characterized, with neither their strength nor their vulnerability being exaggerated.

Not all of the Claymores are the noble warriors you may expect to meet after reading the first few chapters. Some of them are noble, sure, but some of them are indifferent, and others are malicious. Like any other group of human beings, they have flaws and the ability to overcome those flaws. What's rewarding is watching the flawed characters come to grips with their pasts and their mistakes, and try to improve themselves. It's a very universal and moving struggle. The Claymores' fight to retain their humanity isn't unlike the internal moral battles we non-manga people go through.

I totally agree with Laclongquan's review earlier. The manga's world opens up and grows more absorbing as you read it -- what seems at first to be a typical shounen plot gains incredible complexity without losing any of its coherency. Politics, power, ethics and of course personal angst are all brought to bear brilliantly. The mangaka has really done something amazing with what starts out as a simple monster-hunting concept.

My sincere thanks to the groups that are scanslating this manga for us. You guys rock.
