If you are into the InuYasha, Bleach and Naruto Series...you are about to experience an Aneme about some of the most dangerous women in this series.
I bought this item on chance. I read some about it and I received it earlier than expected. I was really surprised after I started watching this entire 1st book, then I watched it again and again, and now on the 7th time watching this series. I am a Bleach, Naruto and InuYasha fan, but I have to say this would compete those. The only thing I can say against it is, there is a couple of words of profanity, and little brief (monster) nudity. I own all of the Naruto, Bleach and InuYasha including all the movies, but Claymore is just so awesome, I couldn't stop watching until it was completely over, which was an all-nighter! This is the only item I own in my vast library of series and movies that I can watch from start to finish over and over without getting enough, or getting tired of it. Those that was in charge of the making of this series has really done a great job of producing this series of Claymore, and I am looking forward to the next series in Claymore, because this series is evidently NOT over.
I do, (as most#, anticipate the next entire series of Claymore that should include "The Awakening of the Abyss", and due to the difference in Clare that is not present in the other Claymore's is:
1.)The "Teresa of the Faint Smile" bloodline, which allows her to fully awaken in power, and be brought back under control without becoming an "Awakened Being".
2.# Her ability to absorb different body parts of other Claymore's, #or other beings#, and incorporate their abilities such as former #2 "Quick Sword Ilena's" right arm, #after Ophelia #4 cut hers off and destroyed it.#
3.# Her ability to sense another from a great distance off, such as Galatea ##3 at that time# after that first battle, #and Galatea could sense Clare's ability to sense her from that distance.#
After Clare killed Rigaldo, The Silver-Eyed Lion, and her defeat of the Awakened Being Priscilla, #to the point where Priscilla had to revert back to her human form#, she didn't kill Priscilla, which allowed Silver King Isley to grab her and get away from the battle. Although Clare had the full intention to kill Priscilla, Raki, #the crying boy who cries all the way through the series#, got in her way because of his affection for Priscilla. Jean, #9, gave her life force to Clare to bring her back to the form of Claymore, because Clare saved her life from Riful.
There is going to be a big scale battle between the last 2 remaining Creatures of the Abyss, The Silver King Isley of the North, with Priscilla, and Riful of the West, with Dauf, and according to Riful of the West, the only way the Claymores will win against Isley is to join with her in the big battle to come. There were originally three #1 Awakened Beings. 2 males, and one female #who was the youngest to have ever mastered her power and awaken#. Isley and Rigaldo were the 2 males, #which Clare defeated Rigaldo# and the first female Riful, #who looks like a child#. Clare made friends with 3 others in the first group of Claymores that she fought beside against her first "Awakened Being" fight: Miria #6 called "The Phantom", Helen #22 and Deneve #15, and they will remain friends, #sisters-in-arms# all the way through, and some of the Claymores are trying to gather evidence against the "Organization" that they work for in order to bring it down.
This Claymore series is fantastic, and a "must see" for those who like this type of anime, and other than the brief anime #monster# nudity, and a couple of words of profanity, it ranks 10, but since there are only 5 stars, I would have to rate it 5 stars, and I'm still watching it over and over. DO NOT MISS BUYING THIS BOX SET!!! You will be sorry if you don't!
