Showcasing more first impressions of anime series (without having watched all the way through…)
Clare is a Claymore, half yoma, half beautiful woman, bred and trained by a shadowy organization to hunt down and destroy innard-devouring yoma (monsters) that ravage the medieval landscape. Together with Raki, a young boy whose life she saved after his family were slaughtered by yoma, she travels from mission to mission, overcoming not just monsters, but the hostility of the mistrusting villagers whose lives she protects, and the yoma nature inside her own body, always struggling to take control. Claymore isn’t the prettiest-looking anime around, but with a dark gothic feel and plenty of gore, this would be good fare for fans of the horror genre. See the full preview here.
