Beating down and smashing every door in his sight, he hopes that if he believes strong enough, his gateway will open -- open to a place beyond his imagination, and where his life will have meaning. After finally being transported to another world full of nature and endless battles, Zed soon comes to realize that his life of purpose has just begun.
Both of those animes are actually quite different, at least about the drawing style. On the other hand the story and ending is quite similar. In both of those series people have a special power with what they fight and that power either swallows them or makes them stronger. The main characters in both of those stories have to go though a tough battle with this power in the end. Of course there is this never ending fight between good and evil. But who can tell anymore what is good and what is evil? People are constantly changing their sides. If watching those series it is going to be a tough decision for you to pick out the good and evil.
Both are amazing amazing series, i might be biast because claymore is one of my favorite series but both are full of action, great story line that keeps you involved. Generally good series

Each of these series are rather violent with deep plots, have many important supporting characters, and a very strongly motivated main character. Also, they are both rather melancholic and have a rather epic and long final story arc.
Both of these anime have a strong-willed lead character who isn't afraid to fight for what they want. The lead is also surrounded by colorful and powerful supporting characters, and a strong adversary. Both have a melancholic atmosphere and show what it is to be human, even if the main cast is far from human. With great action and a intricate storyline, these anime are definitely worth your time.
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. Yuji Kaido is one such Sleeper who awakens, several decades later, to a horrifying new reality. Giant bugs known as Blue have invaded the Earth, eating everything - and everyone - in sight. 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.
