Series Length:1 Season, 26 Episodes

Claymore is a dark fantasy anime television series that tells the story of a young lady with a silver eye known as Clare and her encounters and experiences with some scary and deadly creatures known as youma.

Humans in this imaginary island where Clare lived were always harassed by these monsters which fed on human bodies.

As a result of this, a group was formed and named The Organization. This group developed female human-yoma hybrids that were trained to be fierce fighters and used them to destroy the actual yoma creatures. These females were part human and part yoma, they were characterised by having silver eyes reasons and they were called Claymores, a term which was used to associate them to their claymore swords which they used as weapons to fight against the monsters.

The Organization was at the service of any town or city that was invaded by the yomas. The cities simply called the attention of the organization and paid a certain amount of money for them to send Claymores to fight for them.

Clare was so determined to take part in destroying these monsters so much so that she joined the organization and started working with them. She willingly became a Claymore to avenge the death of her friend Teresa, who was killed by one of the yoma creatures. She was considered to be the weakest Claymore among all the others. Despite her weakness, she was always sent to very challenging battles.

Clare was not the only one that wanted to avenge the yomas. Raki, was a young boy whose parents and only brother were killed by these monsters and had always been looking for a way to take revenge till he met Clare. Raki started living with Clare and the two formed a rare pair, a Claymore and human living together.

Claymore was written by Nohihiro Yagi who also did the illustrations. It was directed by Hiroyuki Tanaka.

The series is available in several well known magazines and also on CDs and DVD. It is broadcast on NTV.

  • Clare completes her awakening but Priscilla still dominates the fight with apparent ease, until Clare, spurred by flashbacks of Teresa, finally lands multiple hits on her, cutting off her wings. Priscilla reverts to her human form and is about to be beheaded when Raki intervenes but Clare, unable to control herself, attacks him as well. Jean takes the blow instead and, although fatally wounded, convinces her to revert to human before completely awakening. After "synchronizing their Yoki" and thus, bringing Clare back, Jean dies, leaving Clare devastated with grief. Easley appears and takes Priscilla away. In the last scenes, Miria, Helen, Deneve, and Clare announce their wish to leave the Claymore organization and depart on separate journeys (Helen goes with Deneve, Raki follows Clare).

  • The fight between Clare and Priscilla rages on inside of a volcano while Easley watches from the top. Clare seems almost powerless in front of Priscilla who doesn't realize she is actually an awakened being as her memories seem to be frozen to the time when she was a Claymore. She also continues to think that Clare is Teresa. Raki and Jean try to catch with Clare and follow the directions left by Miria and the others. Miria, Helen and Deneve arrive just in time before Clare gets killed by Priscilla. They seem to have the better hand on Priscilla but suddenly Priscilla releases all her yoma power and it is revealed that she was not yet fully awakened. When her transformation is complete, she easily defeats Miria and the others. Clare is still recovering her injuries but can't stand to watch her friends get killed and, in order to have her revenge for Teresa's death, she awakens all four of her limbs just as Jean and Raki arrive at the volcano.

  • Clare released her Yoma powers in her battle with Rigardo too much and is unable to return to normal. So she asks Helen to decapitate her whilst she still has the consciousness of a Human. Raki is frightened by what he has seen and feels helpless. Jean is determined to save Clare, even after the fatal injuries given by Rigardo. Raki gathers his courage and joins her. Priscilla recognises Teresa's Yoki within Clare which consequently results in her memories returning. She blames Teresa for her awakening and misconceives Clare to be Teresa, so she transforms into her awakened state. Clare recognises her and fully releases her powers, despite being on the brink of awakening and gives chase to Priscilla. Easley is intrigued by the defeat of Rigardo so he watches on from the sidelines with his army. Meanwhile the survivors take care of the injured Claymores. Number 3 Galatea is sent on a reconnaissance mission to the North with orders to not get involved, however she informs Miria's group about the location of Priscilla and Clare.

  • While Raki is travelling with Easley to Pieta, Clare continues her fight with Rigardo. After several bouts Rigardo comes to the conclusion that he hasn't had a fight like this since he fought with Easley. Raki departs from Priscilla and Easley after hearing that a lot of Claymores, starting from the lowest ranked ones have been sent to Pieta to fight Awakened beings. Clare in her determination to defeat Rigardo manages to partially awaken. The scene switches to Raki as he makes his way into the now abandoned town and finds the partially awakened Clare fighting against Rigardo. Clare releases her Yoma powers to dangerous levels and eventually slashes Rigardo to pieces. Meanwhile, Jean regains consciousness.
