Title: Claymore
Kanji: クレイモア
Premier: 3 April 2007
Producer: Madhouse
Official Website: Claymore
Synopsis (AniDB):
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.

This series have a high chance, but the problem is that the anime in this spring is gonna be A LOT. From some source there are about 50 animes that will be released.

Actually, after seeing the picture I was not interested in this story at all. The girl is not cute and kinda warrior type. (strangely, I do like saber from FSN too lol). But after reading the synopsis, I might give this series a chance. It does looks interesting.

EDIT:
I forget to mention that this anime is adapted from manga with the same title. The manga itself is licensed by Viz Media. Claymore Manga Thread

Anyway, here is the screenshots from the anime. (should be from eps 1). I got it from GA japanese site.
I put all of them in spoiler tags, in case there is some people who does not wish to see it.



Ahh, that's not fair...all of you have read the manga...I don't know who to pick, since I didn't read it...

LOL you mean Saber #2

I'm definitely gonna be checking this one out. I started some of the manga and I really liked the story of what I read, but the drawing completely turned me off, especially people's faces. But looking at the pics jul10 posted they seem to be looking better. Can't wait for this to come out.

Yup this was the third and final thread that I was gonna make tomorrow (meant to be today).........ah well, good job Jul10 but I really wanted to do this one....I know a bit about it.

Claire the Claymore looks like a blonde Tokiko-san (from Busou Renkin).

All I will say this anime's manga is really really really cool.......lots of action, itsy bit of romance, revenge and some really sad stuff........especially when an awful lot of Claymores get killed and when they(don't read its kind of a spoiler as in what could happen to a Claymore but I've made it really vague though.....) get "Awoken" .

Most of the claymores are female in this story but there are some male claymores.

I claim Teresa-chan (Claymore#3....reminds me of Revy-chan) and Priscilla-chan (used to be Claymore#2) are mine forever..........no deal...they are mine forever........no sharing at all!!!!!!!!!

Major Spoiler: - Teresa-chan dies

MKK-sama's girl is Jean (and not Jane, MKK

damn....NOOOOO....I was hoping for a stronger voice because Houko-san's voice is pretty high and a bit older tone. Wait a sec... wouldn't you go for the VA who acted for Saber? And when Claires in her "yoma" berserk form, you'd pick any evil guy from mortal kombat? XD jk.

In the general anime discussion thread...i stated that I planned to do three more remaining new anime threads the day after (today) but the thing was that I said that jul10 and DSL might end up making the ones I had to. So to counterattack to all this.................I made even more new anime threads today.......about 9 new threads today..............I've still got 2 more but I'll do that another day. I've finished editing most of the new threads I made....only GR and Eco Eco left to do.

Counter attack?? Just to remind you, This is not a war!! From my POV you are really into this (which is good), but you made about 5 threads and said "Currently Edditing". At the end, you request to delete 3 of them. If you just do this to one or two threads that's fine, but to 5 threads...

ok, back to the topic.
Aside of the official website that I mentioned on the first post, there are also 3 other 'side' website about this anime.
NTV Claymore Website
Avexmovie Claymore website
Shueisha Claymore Website

All of them are in Japanese though, so don't bother if you cannot read japanese (like me)..

Well I don't need to look at the pics for this one. After reading the summary it has gotten me interested enough. I like the whole hybrid concept. Combining demon powers and humans makes for a delicious plot. And once again i am a sucker for the adventure type anime where swords and violence rule as the order of the day. I'm in a state of xD for this one.

The artwork in this one looks very good. And that girl looks tough as hell. This show has me pretty hopeful for when it comes out. I hope it's really good as I don't want too many disappointing anime's this spring. I read somewhere that around 40 or so animes are airing this spring. If that's true that's completely insane.

I actually have 62 different anime series on my "New Anime List 2007", 3 have already began airing: - Getsumen To Heiki Mina, Moonlight Mile and Rocket Girls, 3 OVAs which have been released: - Eko Eko Azarak, Amazing Nuts! and Tori no uta. So that leaves 56 different anime series/movies/OVAs to come in April. Only 54 of the 56 threads are present in this forum................I know the other 2 of only their title...........I can't make a thread out of the two........simply because there's no information about the two........its not at ANN
ohmy.gif
.............so maybe I'll make them when I have found enough information.

~Sorry, off-topic~

Yup, this anime better be good....or I'll go scream at the director when I go Japan..lol.

Anyone, got an idea of how episodes this is supposed to be ?

Personally I want it more than 26 episodes...........but it'll probably end up being 26 episodes....leaves the anime series in a cliffhanger and announce a second season, that will start in 2009, during the waiting time an OVA or a movie is produced to kinda reduce the waiting time................just making it up....hmmm. What do you guys think ?

ByeBye

What are the remaining two series? I don't feel like counting through all the threads right now. I might be able to salvage some information.

No amount of episodes has been currently announced, but Shinsen and Rubel have considered to sub this series when it begins airing on April 3, 2007.

From what I've read and the events took place, the manga have roughly 24-26 episodes unless they have the Teresa chapter like 6-8 episodes. But the manga is only up tp chapter.69 and that's I believe isn't even close to the ending, so I think the production will either stick with the manga and do an OVA or they will tell the story in a different format like Black Cat and add filler episodes which I hated. I think the latter choice will what's going to happen but considering the screenshots from JCDRANZER, it looks like they just might stick with the manga....

unless they're way behind in the manga and already got the story plot down, then they can do the anime before the manga is even finished! probability of that happening: 12-20%.

If there are fillers in this anime, first thing I'll have to kill is MKK.

I like how you say "first thing I'll have to kill is MKK".... thing right?

Good job MKK you've been demoted once again.

I think I read few chapters of manga but then the group translating the manga dropped it so I never bothered to look for another group... hmmm
