Review: Claymore


Plot Summary: In a world rife with deadly creatures called “youma”, a young silver eyed woman, Clare, works on behalf of an organisation that trains female youma halfbreeds into warriors with the ability to destroy these creatures. Considered a rogue for picking up a stray child & almost losing herself to her youma side by “Awakening”, she is constantly assigned rather dangerous missions


Claymore are a breed of warriors whose blood is mixed with yoma which are monsters to fight yomas, they are half human, and half yoma. There is an organization who sends out these Claymores to slay Yomas based on request, but there seems to be something brewing. Claire is a Claymore who seems to be the weakest of her kind, but there is something about her which is unknown. A person becomes a Claymore out of choice, and Claire chose to have the blood of another Claymore in her who protected her and accepted her as a child. Claire takes in Raki a human who lost his family to a Yoma, and she follows the organization up to a certain point since there were some problems and misinformation from them. Things pick up pace at a very fast rate, and the anime is extremely enjoyable. Towards the end of the anime you want to see more, but your very satisfied with the ending.
