Claymore Manga Review
Claymore is in fact so much like Berserk that you would be hard pressed not to just call Claire Guts. In actuality they are two different and epic books. Claymore has the violence and gore but also offers a good story that spans many years and generations of its story. So the story revolves around the number 47 warrior Claire. Who is number 47 because she is the weakest claymore (women who are genetically enhanced with creature parts) but it would seem she was the only warrior to want to become a claymore on here own merit. She was also the only warrior to have been implanted with the enhancements from the strongest claymore at the time Teresa. From there the story picks up as a sort of generic revenge tale but its actually quite engrossing as her story kind of resembles what Teresa did to help her. She meets other characters claymore's and monsters a like and through out her adventures finds out about her self and comes to term with her feelings and emotions as well as the boiling rage in her heart.
In conclusion, this series is a visual treat for anyone who is into this kind of stuff and while it does lack in some areas it makes up for those times with flawless art work and just all round badassery.
