''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. Creator/{{Madhouse}} adapted the manga into a 26-episodes anime directed by Hiroyuki Tanaka and written by Yasuko Kobayashi, which aired in Japan from 3 April 2007 to 25 September 2007. It covered the story from volume 1 to the first half of volume 11 (up to chapter 59), staying relatively faithful to the source material until its [[GeckoEnding departure from the manga in its last episodes]], which it took 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.

Added DiffLines:

* InternalDeathSquad: The warriors run a constant risk of Awakening into giant rampaging monsters, so sending warrior teams to kill their Awakened comrades is a normal thing for the Organization. What most warriors don't know, however, is that the Organization also has Number 10 (nominally the 10th strongest warrior of each generation) [[spoiler:specifically trained to disable and to kill un-Awakened warriors, in case they turn on the Organization]].


* AlasPoorVillain: Pour some wine out for [[spoiler: Isley, Riful and Dauf]]. Pour it ''twice'' for [[spoiler:Dauf. Anyone who can lose whatever vestige of humanity he had left and ''still'' have a sense of purpose deserves that much.]]

Added DiffLines:

* HumanResources: The Organization has standard Asarakam and an awakened Asarakam chained in their dungeon. They then cut bits off of the Asarakam to make Youma and Awakened. The Organization has also taken the human flesh of those who have been infected by the Youma and implanted them into Warriors as an experiment.

Added DiffLines:

* TheReveal: Besides the revelation that "the world" is actually one continent isolated for a weapons program and the Organization being corrupt, Rubel reveals to Dae that Clare is not the only 1/4 Youma Warrior. There were others who had been unknowingly implanted with the flesh of loved ones who had been infected by Youma. The result is the ability to Half-Awaken (for these 1/4 breeds it takes far more effort to Awaken but it's better controlled). Other experiments were Miria, Deneve and Helen and maybe more.


* MasterSwordsMan: Every Warrior in the Organization is this, to the point that many of them are CombatAesthicist who disrespect fellow Warriors who have ugly fighting techniques. Raki himself is a master swordsman but he got caught in a MexicanStandOff against a pair of trainees who were holding back, showing that even the trainees are experts.

* OlderThanTheyLook: Because they stop aging in their teens or early 20s, Warriors all look to be similar in age. But even in the 7 Ghosts, individuals come from different generations with Miria being the eldest at Generation 127 and Clare the youngest at Generation 150. At one point, Helen and Deneve wonder why Clare can be so childish at times, then they remember she's the youngest out of all them and had a laugh at that.



* OneHandedZweihander: Every Claymore does this. Granted, their swords are only moderately large by anime standards, but no normal person could use them like they do. Lampshaded by Clare in the first chapter.
