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.
Thus begins the twisting tale of Clare, one such sister of the sword driven by pain in both victory and defeat. A child silent and suffering hidden in her past, Clare’s march toward vengeance unfolds along a path marked by violence, solitude and scorn. In a land where even the predator is prey, the haunted hearts of hunter and hunted alike wear the scars of the age.

The show is really great, dark storyline with good mysterious characters. It is criticized by many due to it's deviation from the manga, which is fine in my opinion as I don't want a movie or tv series to be an exact copy of a book. I decided to mainly rate this on the quality of the blu ray instead of focusing on the storyline, manga differences etc.
What I've heard so many times is how Funimation does dvd upscaling. Sadly, I found this is true with this one. I put my dvds up against this and (sorry no pics) it really isn't different, to say that I am disappointed is an understatement. It really looks almost identical, hazy, slightly blurry, bit washed out picture in the same spots. In the end, SHAME ON YOU Funimation!
Hopefully this will help someone else who is on the fence whether to upgrade or just keep the dvd set.
- Comments: This anime is reasonably violent. However, if you are a viewer who doesn't like seeing excessive blood or violence in general, it might be wise to avoid this. Fan-service is almost nonexistent in this anime. The story and plot is much too serious for fun and games, it would seem. There is plenty of fight scenes, suspense, and the strong desire to maintain one's humanity in this anime. A trait that is overlooked by the "normal" people; who see no differences between these warriors and monsters.
- Analysis: The female warriors typically generate plenty of sympathy from the viewer, since they put their lives on the line for the very people that considers them monsters. I imagine even female characters typically take offense to being compared to the very demonic and monstrous creatures that they hunt. It does address an interesting concern as to whether or not these warriors would be considered humans. At least depending on one's perspective.
It's respectable and admiral of the warrior's resolve to maintain their humanity. Similar to certain animes such as H.O.T.D., many characters choose to die in their human form, rather than to be slain when their humanity is taken over by their Yoma side. This also emphasizes how much these characters consider themselves as humans. Though they typically don't talk much, perhaps they just want to be accepted by humans.
- Features: English and Japanese audio, as well as English subtitles. It's about 10 hours long and includes 26 episodes on 3 Blu-ray discs. Rated TV-MA for blood and gore, as well as some fan-service.
- Conclusion: This is a violent but interesting anime regarding female warriors that use sheer will-power to hold the monster blood inside them to fight against the very monsters they might one day become. All at the orders of a mysterious organization that collects the rewards from the warriors' efforts. These warriors are constantly accompanied by allies, foes, and death.
- Recommendations: Akame ga Kill!, Freezing, Tokyo Ghoul, Code:Breaker, K, Tokyo ESP, Deadman Wonderland, Ajin, Re:Zero, High School of the Dead, Akuma no Riddle, Owari no Seraph, Cross Ange, and Parasyte -the maxim-.
