Background Information Edit

Claymore is a manga and anime series by Norihiro Yagi. It is about female warriors called Claymores (named after the swords they wield) who are tasked to fight monsters known as Youma.


The plot is considered by many to be superior to the plots of many other contemporary manga (maybe in the past), including the Holy Shonen Trinity (not that hard to beat anyway). The first half of the manga is quite good, but it unfortunately becomes a bit of a clusterfuck in the second half, towards the end. The anime, on the other hand, in this author's opinion, had some of the best fights seen in animation since Dragon Ball. It also ended more or less at the point before the manga on which it was based started to become a clusterfuck.

Standing in the Battledome Edit

Speed is emphasized in Claymore, and often scenes are drawn as to suggest extreme speed. As a series, its top tiers are in the massively hypersonic to relativistic range of speed, and the upper tiers are town busters in terms of destructive capacity. Overall, the series is on the upper-end of things in terms of speed, but the lack of DC and hax hamstrings it in some ways. They're at least comparable to the likes of Hunter x Hunter and D.Gray-Man.
