Synopsis

In this world, humans coexist with demonic predators called Yoma. These demonic beasts feast on human innards and can blend into human society by taking on human appearance. As a counter force, a mysterious organization created half-human, half-Yoma warriors known as the "Silver Eyed Witches" or "Claymores," after the huge claymore swords they carry. They are detested by humanity however necessary.

The story begins with a young boy, Raki, who has lost everything in a Yoma attack, and the Claymore, Clare, who is generally detested by society. Throughout the series, Clare and Raki show their deeper qualities, powers and Clare's never ending devotion to the goal she swore to fulfill in her childhood.

The story basically follows Clare as she travels to slay these Yoma, which get increasingly difficult to defeat as the story goes on. As a character Clare is developed so well that your opinion of her will change constantly throughout the read more

Two hardcore hack and slash shows. While Berserk is most likely more on the "darker" side of the two, both are still definitely a guy's "beat the crap out of them" type of show. Brutal, but each has a touch of emotion here and there.

Pain and sorrow are felt in both series however they are not on the same caliber. Fighting for a better future, teamwork, sacrifice are all shallow similarities.'Claymore' has a wide range of characters with dark past which you will feel sorry for whether they are friend or foe, it shows you the hardship of characters who only fight for themselves but in time come to terms with close friendship thus fight for one and another.

'Shingeki no Kyojin' excels in its epic twists and turns where you cannot trust anyone even in your own team. You will constantly be wondering about the next death or who the real enemy is and that makes this series very amazing to watch.
