In this world, from ancient times, people were eaten by beings called "youma". For a long time, people lived without any means to counter them. However, a half-human, half-youma female warrior was born.... Female soldiers known as "Claymore" who, with silver eyes that can see through to the true form of "youma", and carry a large sword as a weapon, continue to battle those which people have named "youma". — ANN
Based on a shounen manga by Yagi Norihiro serialised in Monthly Shounen Jump.
The setting of the story is a fictional world of abundant towns where humans coexist with demons called Yoma. These monsters feed on humans as their main source of food, hiding themselves in human society until they strike.
A group of skilled warriors form a nameless organization to protect humans from these demons. These warriors are called Claymores, after their immense Claymore weapons. They willingly infuse themselves with demon flesh and blood to become powerful half-human hybrids. Villages in danger of attack hire warriors from the organisation for protection.
The story of Claymore follows the adventures of the beautiful Claymore warrior Claire, who fights demons and struggles to hold on to her humanity.
Long ago, the Yoma, the shape changing demons, took human form to live in disguise among human society. They feed on human innards, and take possession of memories from the brains of people they eat. These acquired memories help them better disguise themselves within human society.
In recent years, a secret society discovers a way of implanting demon bodies and body parts into humans, to create hybrids more powerful than the original demons. Hybrid`s standard abilities include faster healing, limited shape modification, the ability to detect other demons and hybrids, and overall enhanced physical prowess. Almost all hybrids are created against their will; they are typically survivors of families attacked by demons. The only exception is the lead character, who volunteered to become a hybrid to avenge her family. The society sends hybrids to towns that can afford their fares to kill demons, although not every hybrid does so willingly (this is implied in the manga.) The society is often strict and harsh; hybrids who break the rules risk being hunted down by their fellow hybrids. — AniDB
Йомы – это людоеды, зловещие монстры, способные принимать человеческий облик. Самые сильные и безудержно голодные Йомы открыто нападают на деревни, прочие проникают в людские общины тайком, под видом кого-либо из селян.
Клеймор – это наполовину Йомы, наполовину люди. У них светлые волосы и серебряные глаза. Клеймор способны распознавать и истреблять Йом. Все Клеймор – женского пола.
Люди – это просто люди. Они боятся Клейморов и боятся Йом. Но без первых им не совладать со вторыми. Эта история начинается со знакомства Клеймор по имени Клэр и человека по имени Раки... —
