Claymore! Anyone like it?





fantastic
Ya! Have anyone watch this series? It has anime and manga.
I watched anime first and then the manga. It's still airing so I'm waiting every week.

Some info about this series:



The setting of Claymore's story is a fictional world with medieval technology. Politically, it appears to consist of a large number of scattered, apparently independent, towns. In this world, humans coexist with creatures called Yoma (妖魔, Yoma?) sentient monsters that feed on human innards. The Yoma, being shapeshifters, are capable of taking on human form and living in disguise amongst humans. By consuming a human's brain, Yoma can also absorb their memories, allowing them to disguise themselves as specific people without alerting any of their close friends or family.

A nameless and highly secretive organization has created an order of superhuman warriors to protect humans from the Yoma. These warriors have come to be popularly known as Claymores, after the immense claymores they wield. Villages being attacked by Yoma hire Claymores to kill the Yoma for a large fee.

This organization creates the Claymores by implanting Yoma flesh and blood into humans, thus creating hybrids that are more powerful than the original Yoma, in addition to their weapons training and often greater intelligence. These hybrids use large claymore swords that normal humans lack the strength to wield and are characterized by their silver eyes and hair. A Claymore's standard abilities include overall enhanced physical prowess (most noticeably, strength), faster healing, limited shape modification and the ability to detect Yoma by sensing their Yoki (妖気, Yoki?). However, the Yoma powers of each Claymore will increase over time, until the Claymore loses all humanity and becomes a powerful, highly intelligent, and incredibly bloodthirsty Yoma called an Awakened Being. They also constantly run the risk of speeding up their transformations into Awakened if they overuse their powers. A good Claymore will ask a friend (usually a fellow Claymore) to kill them if they sense they are "Awakening", ensuring that they do not turn into the very monsters they hunt.

The secret organization is usually contacted by towns or villages afflicted by Yoma, and goes on to dispatch an appropriate number of Claymores to eliminate the target(s). Upon a successful kill, it then sends an agent to collect a large fee for its services. A town that fails to pay will never receive any further assistance, and will be left at the mercy of the Yoma. It has been insinuated that the organization itself sends Yoma to the towns that fail to pay, or at least inform the Yoma that said towns are no longer under Claymore protection. The organization is often strict and harsh; hybrids who break the rules (for example, by killing a human, even accidentally or to protect others) will be hunted down by their fellow hybrids. Claymores who cause trouble or Claymores suspected to be on the verge of Awakening will be sent on suicide missions without their knowledge. Various characters throughout the series suspect the organization of being much more sinister than it appears, though most are either unwilling or unable to act on the matter as it would mean conflict with other Claymores.

Despite saving humans on a regular basis, Claymores are often alienated from and feared by humans due to their incredible powers, their relation to Yomas, and generally aloof attitudes. Humans will often call them "silver-eyed witches/slayers" or "monsters". Family members of individuals impersonated by Yoma tend to be banished from villages for fear that they might be Yoma too. Claymores are often girls who suffered this fate or survivors of villages wiped out by Yoma. Presumably from one or more of their background, Yoma blood, their training, and their harsh lives, many Claymores are generally serious and at least outwardly cold. Claymores often live unhappy, lonely lives due to their solitary lifestyle and the knowledge that they will eventually die or become monsters. Some become hot-tempered and easily angered, while some other Claymores develop an incredible thirst for blood and become bloodthirsty killers who enjoy taking life, more savage than the Yoma they hunt. Almost all of them avoid any sort of companionship with humans.

The story of Claymore follows the adventures of the Claymore warrior Clare. The plot follows her as she fights Yoma and struggles to hold on to her humanity. Starting in the 3rd volume, there is a flashback to her childhood on how she was 'adopted' by the Claymore Teresa. After Teresa rebels against the organization and is subsequently killed, Clare volunteers to become a Claymore using Teresa's flesh in order to take revenge on the Awakened who killed her. With determination and her human friend Raki by her side, Clare overcomes her low demonic power by honing the skills she inherited from Teresa. As the series progresses, she becomes a stronger and better fighter, gradually earning the respect of strong allies and coming in conflict with the shadowy organization, the top Claymores who support them, and many powerful Awakened.[/img]

Hi there,

First of all, yes, I also think that Claymore is a great serie, and in my opinion one of the best so far this year. Of course there are also some not so good things...

Now, the majority of your post is a huge rip off from other site as we can see here:

http://forum.fdzone.org/archiver/?tid-1934924.html

I didn't see any reference to it (because to the date there isn't any) to the site above, specially to the user that posted that same information.

Secondly, by the number of your post, I can only imagine that your are trying to get a Frihost account activated. Well, be aware that this is not what this forum is for, if u want to quote something use the quote function.

Finally, there's already a thread about Claymore in this forum. I think there's no need to create a new one when many things have already been discussed here:

Btw, I'm the author of the post. See how i had the worry of not ripping off stuff but instead directing people to the source? IMO, that's the way it should be...

Stay Cool.

Claymore seems to be interesting series. Indeed, the orignal storyline mixed with extra-gore scenes seems to be interesting. I haven't watched many of it yet, but it starts to be pretty interesting. I like the art and drawings, and also music. But it's not perfect you know... only good. Like every anime that came lately...

Claymore is an awesome anime, the story follows closely to the manga until episode 20, where it start to branch off the real story and creating the alternate ending for the TV series...
Why don't they make a 2nd season instead of creating such horrible ending Sad [/b]
