Watch Claymore

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.

Claymore Full Episode Guide

  • 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).

  • 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.
