Notable draws for the series include its WorldOfActionGirls, drawn-out and gory fight sequences featuring some [[OneWingedAngel really hideous demons]], and its exploration of what makes someone a human or a monster. Stylistically it takes inspiration from the generation of action manga that Yagi read as a youth including ''FistOfTheNorthStar'' and ''Manga/SpaceAdventureCobra''. Readers who enjoy Claymore and don't mind dipping into seinen might like ''Manga/{{Berserk}}'', a DarkFantasy with gory medieval combat that also focuses on loss, corruption, and revenge, or ''Manga/{{Zetman}}'', which puts all of the mutation and demons into a [[SlidingScaleOfIdealismVersusCynicism cynical]] take on the {{superhero}} genre.

''Claymore'' is a DarkFantasy manga by Norihiro Yagi, who wanted to try drawing a more serious story after finishing his debut manga, the high school delinquent parody ''Manga/AngelDensetsu''. He planned the plot loosely so that he could let it develop naturally and the tale grew with the telling, beginning publication in May 2001 and finishing in October 2014 at 155 chapters. The manga has been adapted into a 26-episodes anime that was aired in Japan from 3 April 2007 to 25 September 2007, covering volumes 1 to half of 11 (up to chapter 59) and staying relatively faithful to the source material except for its [[GeckoEnding departure from the manga in its last episodes]], done in order to give the series a conclusion the manga didn't have at the time.

The series is notable for its WorldOfActionGirls, drawn-out and gory fights with extremely detailed and hideous demons, and its exploration of what makes someone a human or a monster. Yagi drew inspiration from manga of his youth such as ''FistOfTheNorthStar'' and ''Manga/SpaceAdventureCobra'', while ''Claymore'' itself has drawn comparisons with Kentaro Miura's dark epic fantasy ''Manga/{{Berserk}}''.

%% * MyKungFuIsStrongerThanYoursMyKungFuIsStrongerThanYours: This ''is'' an action Shonen after all. For much of the story the main character Clare is learning from Claymores stronger than her and trains herself to be able to face Priscilla one day. However this trope is also downplayed, as many battles in ''Claymore'' aren't won by the stronger side but rather the one with the better teamwork, the ability to land a special attack at the right time or the smartest strategy, as Miria's battle against Hysteria, [[spoiler:both awakened and not]], shows.

*SuperPoweredMooks: The [[MouthStitchedShut Abyssal Eaters]] are a new threat to both Claymores and Awakened beings introduced in the second half of the manga. They are created with the same procedures Claymores are created, but rather than using Yoma flesh and blood instead the Abyssal Eaters have the flesh and blood of Awakened beings within them, this make them vicious beasts that are human in shape only and posses such a powerful HealingFactor that [[DecapitationRequired only through decapitation it is possible to kill them]].
