''Claymore'' is a DarkFantasy manga written by Norihiro Yagi, who debuted with the more comedic manga AngelDensetsu. He plotted the story out loosely and the tale grew with the telling, beginning publication in May 2001 and finishing in October 2014 at 155 chapters. The series is notable for its WorldOfActionGirls, drawn-out and gory fights with extremely detailed and hideous demons, and its exploration of the continuum between human and 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}}''.

[[InAWorld On a continent cut off from the outside world]], where people live in scattered cities and villages at a vaguely MedievalEuropeanFantasy level of development, demons hide among the humans and prey on them for food. These demons are capable of tearing through armored soldiers, have an insatiable appetite for human entrails, and can disguise themselves perfectly as humans. For these terrorized communities, there is only one source of salvation: pay an exorbitant sum of money to a mysterious group called [[TheOmniscientCouncilOfVagueness The Organization]], who will send a silver-eyed, half-demon female warrior to root out the threat. Nicknamed "Claymores" by people outside the organization after the great swords they wield, these warriors possess superhuman strength, speed, and regeneration, as well as senses that can detect demons and demonic energy. These abilities come from having had the flesh of a demon surgically implanted in their bodies when they were only girls, and a Claymore who releases too much of her power runs the risk of not being able to turn back. [[AllOfTheOtherReindeer Society rejects them]] for their monstrous traits, and their own organization treats them as [[WeHaveReserves expendable pawns]] by sending them on one dangerous assignment after another until their luck runs out. Desertion from the organization is punished by death, as is breaking the iron-clad rule not to kill a human under any circumstances.
