In the early 21st century, the emergence of an incurable condition known as B-cell growth led some of the affected to become "Sleepers" - people put under stasis until a cure could be found.

Now, all Yuji can do is escape from the city with the ones who saved him from his inevitable death, and make their way towards Second Earth: mankind's new home in space.
Both Blue Gender and Claymore are focused around a girl working for a large militant or soldire like organization leading a boy through a world he is unfamiliar with. In both cases the plots have satisfying and tragic developements and this doesnt even cover the fact that in both cases they are constantly slaying armies of progresivly fiercer monsters in a shower of blood.
I agree, both Blue Gender and Claymore feature very stoic main female leads and an amazing love story drenched in plenty of violence and all of the epic battles you want to see. If you like one I'm sure you'll love the other.

While there are a lot of differences between Claymore and Rurouni Kenshin: Tsuiokuhen, there are some similarities. In both there is a lot of bloodshed, both heroes are fighting constantly and with a sword against others.
In Kenshin there aren't demons like in Claymore, and it is more real than Claymore, but if you like one of them, you might like the other one, too.

Soon after, the Golden Tribe encountered a crashed ship in which only a baby human known as Age survived; they named the child's race the Iron Tribe and assigned one of the few living members of the Heroic Tribe to protect him and his race. Now, in a distant part of the galaxy, humanity is threatened with extinction at the hands of the other tribes. With only a prophecy to go on, they set out to the deepest depths of space to find their savior named Age -- humanity's last hope.
