When a shapeshifting demon with a thirst for human flesh, known as “youma,” arrives in Raki’s village, a lone woman with silver eyes walks into town with only a sword upon her back. She is a “Claymore,” a being manufactured as half-human and half-youma, for the express purpose of exterminating these monsters. After Raki’s family is killed, Claymore saves his life, but he is subsequently banished from his home. With nowhere else to go, Raki finds the Claymore, known as Clare, and decides to follow her on her journey.
As the pair travel from town to town, defeating youma along the way, more about Clare’s organization and her fellow warriors comes to light. With every town cleansed and every demon destroyed, they come closer to the youma on which Clare has sought vengeance ever since she chose to become a Claymore.
In a world rife with deadly creatures called “youma”, a young silver-eyed woman, Clare, works on behalf of an organization that trains female youma halfbreeds into warriors with the ability to destroy these creatures. Considered a rogue for picking up a stray child and almost losing herself to her youma side by “Awakening”, she is constantly assigned rather dangerous missions.

I’ve watched this three times already. I love the characters, the action, the emotion, all of it! I’m reading the manga and it gives a complete story and it gets so much better. I really hope they do a reboot because there could be a whole second season from the manga. If you enjoyed the show, I highly recommend reading the manga!
