Claymore is based on the Manga novel by Norihiro Yahi which has been
turned into a TV series with volume one just being released in
Australia. The premise behind the series is a battle between the flesh
eating Yoma and the savours of humanity, the Claymores or the
silver-eyed witches who are hybrids of both species.
The main character
in Claymore is Clare who has a shrouded past of torture, misery and violence,
however when she rescues a boy named Raki, her life is then given
This DVD introduces the viewer to this dark and mystical universethat features an almost period set gothic action series as we
join Clare on her journey to destroy the Yoma.
The series starts with a
bang and thankfully it continues and when it ends, you'll e rushing out
to buy Claymore 02. With some brilliant characterisation from
both the Claymores, the humans and the nefarious Yoma, what makes this
series so engaging, apart from the seriously kick ass storyline is the
brilliant animation and equally impressive soundtrack that really sets
the mood of things to come.
Brilliant from start to finish!
