Editorial Reviews

A brutal scourge stalks the land. Yoma, monsters driven by a hunger satisfied by only one quarry: Humanity. The dark breed knows but a singular foe: Claymore. Human-Yoma hybrids of extraordinary strength and cunning, the Claymores roam from skirmish to skirmish delivering salvation by the edge of a blade... for a fee. Thus continues the twisting tale of Clare, one such sister of the sword driven by pain in both victory and defeat. A disturbing glance into the past reveals the forces which molded an orphan into a warrior, where monsters come in all shapes and heroes sometimes hide their greatest glories. Lore tells of twin goddesses, worshipped for their boundless grace - two angels of light called Teresa and Clare. Contains episodes 6-10. DVD Features: Episode Commentary, Interview with Director Hiroyuki Tanaka, Textless Songs, Trailers. Spoken Languages: English, Japanese, English subtitles.

5 of 5 people found the following review helpful By Gene A. Robbins on January 24, 2009
I heard about the Claymore series in Otaku magazine. It was recommended for people who liked the anime Berserk (one of my favorites of all time, the re-mastered box set comes out in March :). The second volume tells the story of Theresa of the Faint Smile and how Claire met her. While the first volume of Claymore was action heavy, this volume, while still having incredible action sequences, really drew me into the story. Cannot wait until volume 3 hits stores in February.

From the first volume, "Claymore" hit the ground running with intense monster battles. Volume two heats up with flashy superhuman Dragonball Z-style sword battles.

Episode 6 opens with Claire actually speaking out her heart to Teresa, pleading to stay with her. There's even a scene where Claire strips off her clothes to show that Teresa means everything as her only mother. It's a saddening sight to watch Teresa leave Claire for her Claymore duties. However, when a band of thieves burns the town down, Teresa has no choice but to kill them.

A Claymore isn't allowed to kill humans, though. However, Teresa refuses to die this easily, slaying the Claymores who planned to execute her. But her Claymore buddies don't plan on letting her leave. The organization sends four of the top-ranked Claymores to fight her, leading to some ferocious, incredibly fast battles.

It's an understatement to say that "Claymore" is one of the craziest action anime series ever made. Each of the Claymores has a unique special power, and some of the Claymore powers are visual astounding. For example, Irene's quick sword technique cuts so quickly that no one can even see her arms. She can move her arms faster than the speed of light. This leads to an amazing sequence in which Teresa's arm is speedily blocking Irene's sword slashes at the speed of a Dragonball Z fight.

The fight turns to a fatal end in episode 8, with one of the Claymores, Priscilla, growing amazingly powerful as she slowly uses more and more of her Yoma powers. Many Claymores die in this volume, leaving the remaining survivor devastated. This tearjerking episode will tear viewers' hearts out with emotion.

Volume two sets the tone for Claymore as a godlike superhuman action anime.

The second DVD in the Claymore series. The first three episodes continue the Teresa and Clare flashback from the first DVD and give necessary background on the tragic history that bind the two together. These episodes are vital in understanding Clare's motivation in becoming a Claymore and her ultimate goal. The last two episodes are the 'Those Who Rend Asunder' episodes that conclude on DVD 3. These episodes introduce three Claymore who will appear again in later episodes and start to raise questions about the true nature of the Claymore 'organization'. The extras include an interview with the Japanese director and as with all the Claymore DVDs there is commentary by two of the voice actors/actresses. On DVD 2 the commentary is by the voice actresses that voice Priscilla and Ilena. The series itself is first rate with a very good story line and above average graphical look and the English voice cast does a superb job. Keep an ear peeled for Helen aka Jamie Marchi who is also the voice of Masane in the Witchblade series.
