    Default Claymore Discussion.

    Does anybody read this Manga? It is by the same artist as Angel Densetsu.

    Heres the Viz summery posted from Manga updates:

    "In a world where monsters called Yoma prey on humans and live among them in disguise, humanity's only hope is a new breed of warrior known as Claymores. Half human, half monster, these silver-eyed slayers possess supernatural strength, but are condemned to fight their savage impulses or lose their humanity completely."

    So, is there any other fans of this series out there? I suggest reading this if you are a fan of Berserk, Hellsing, and Devilman, its like the female counterpart of these three.

    The art is good from the beginning, but only gets better in the later volumes. Only problem is that it can be hard to distinguish faces, as they all look alike. If it were not for hair styles and scars, telling one Claymore from another would be down right impossible, but don't let this deter you. The story is good at the beginning but when a certain volume hits [keeping spoilers to a minimum] the shit hits the fan and the pacing only leaves you wanting more.

    Manga Traders and Manga Sketchbook both have this Manga ready for download, but like me you should buy it. I think it is worthy of at least that. Volume 6 was just released the other day.

    Check it out, and if you already have done so let me know what you think.

    another way to tell them apart is the armour they wear, each claymore has a different armour style, it isn't apparent at first but you'll see some really interesting ones later on. I don't think the faces are that hard to tell apart, although I do see your point, the hair is a main factor to distinguish most people really.

    in any case, this is one of the best manga's I've read, going so far as to look at the raws which I never do...

    I love this manga... I didn't expect to when I first read it, but it's a great series - interesting idea, with good characters and a clear plot. The flashback for a few volumes was a little confusing but after reading it, I found that it really worked.

    ...You know, when I first started to read Berserk, I thought it reminded me of Claymore. ^^;; Hopefully Claymore will keep the same kind of mood throughout - it has soooo much potential.

    And now that I'm reminded - off to read volume 6!

    i read up to chapter 68 and it's damn good. i started reading last week and it's good. The story is unique. The fact that the claymores look the same could be intentional... i really like the fact that the manga isn't afraid to kill off anyone, exception of 2 or 3 characters.

    the anime hasn't started yet, but i hope it's nearly like the manga.

    also, what's the newest chapter, is it 68?
    "I am free of all prejudices. I hate everyone equally."
    "When did I realize I was God? Well, I was praying and I suddenly realized I was talking to myself."
    "There are no stupid questions, just stupid people."
    "It takes 46 muscles to frown but only 4 to flip 'em the bird."

    Some screens for the upcoming Anime.

    Good to see some fans out there. 68 is the latest chapter.

    Yea, I thought it was happening simultaneously with Claires story. Should have seen the shock on my face when the conclusion came around. Its what really made the Manga worthwhile. Since then I have been checking the RAW's, and my God! It only gets better.

    Obviously its getting good ratings, hence the Anime counterpart. Really looking forward to it, and I rarely look forward to any Anime that isn't a feature length.

    Trust us, this manga will BLOW your mind in a few volumes. Volume 11 is the most amazing volume I've seen so far, apart from Vol 4 and 5, those were awesome.

    Only reason I'm looking forward to the anime is for TRANSLATION! Someone needs to scanslate this manga... Fuck Bleach and Naruto, more Claymore!

    Claymore is easily one of the best three manga series out there (Gintama and Majin Tantei being the other two), and Vol. 5 is possibly the most worthy read of all time.

    I've yet to read vol. 6, although hopefully itll arrive soon and ill have a review up on my live action anime column soon.

    the animes looking good, although nothing can achieve Yagi's style in motion.
