* SpearCounterpart: Clare is considered by many to be the DistaffCounterpart of Guts, the main protagonist of the {{seinen}} ''{{Manga/Berserk}}'', where ''Claymore'' is pretty much [[JustForFun/XMeetsY a more shonen version of the former]]. Not only are their [[DarkAndTroubledPast backstories]], [[{{BFS}} arsenal]], [[{{Revenge}} goals]], and [[AntiHero personalities]] alike (hey! They're even [[BadassTransplant using an arm that isn't theirs!]]), just look at how similar their arch nemeses are! Anyone care for a [[NighInvulnerability nigh invulnerable]], [[WingedHumanoid winged]] (or [[CapeWings wing-caped]]), HumanoidAbomination who made an [[FallenHero epic fall from grace]] as their BigBad?

'''''Claymore'' (クレイモア ''Kureimoa'')''' is a DarkFantasy [[ShonenDemographic shonen]] 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.

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 ''Manga/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}}'', a [[SlidingScaleOfIdealismVersusCynicism cynical]] take on the {{superhero}} genre about an orphan with mutant powers.

[[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 called ''Yoma'' 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]], which will send one of its silver-eyed female warriors to root out the threat.

Nicknamed "Claymores" by the common people after the great swords they wield, these warriors are half-human, half-demon hybrids possessing superhuman strength, speed, and regeneration, as well as senses that can detect demons and demonic energy. They are all adopted as orphans by the Organization and trained after undergoing the painful surgery to implant demon flesh in their bodies, learning to use their demon half to bring out their most impressive abilities when fighting ''Yoma''. However, a Claymore who releases too much of her demon power at once runs the risk of losing control and turning into something truly monstrous. Human society [[AllOfTheOtherReindeer rejects them]], 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.

Our main character is Clare, the [[TheStoic stoic]] and self-sacrificing warrior with the number 47. She is the weakest Claymore of her generation because she took on the flesh of a fellow warrior instead of a demon, and is therefore only one-quarter demon. In her travels, she adopts a teenage boy named [[HeartwarmingOrphan Raki]] who was cast out by his village after she killed the demon that ate his family. Raki [[MoralityPet tags along]] with her as her cook as she goes from village to village plunging into one desperate fight after another, and manages to get past her emotional defenses to the point where they care deeply about each other. However, Clare is caught up in her own quest to get {{Revenge}} on the monster that killed her mother-figure. On top of that, she is soon sucked into a vast conflict between the Organization in the East and the supreme demons called Abyssal Ones that rule the North, South, and West, as well as a rebellion by a group of Claymores who want to expose the Organization's dark secrets. What ensues is a story of sacrifice, survival, TrueCompanions, and finding something WorthLivingFor.
