Pretty similar in genre and have a very similar target audience. Both shows share the theme of monster erradication, both have very violent main characters, and both are under the employment/control of a strange organization
Lots of bloodshed occurs in both Hellsing Ultimate and Claymore. Also, both are animes about a superhuman monster hunter. In addition, both protagonists are also viewed as monsters by the rest of society - despite being their only effective defense against those monsters.
Kiba is a wolf, one of the last of his kind, and his dream is to find Paradise in a world torn asunder by war. Cheza, the legendary Flower Girl, can lead him to Paradise, but there are others who desire her, and help from other wolves at his side may not be enough. Driven by his noble spirit, he will not forsake his quest.
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.
Kamui has returned to Tokyo with a traumatizing past, but he is not the only one. Many people are returning to Tokyo for the same reason: they play a part in the End of the World.

Himura Kenshin was a boy orphaned by the murder of his parents. Now he is the Hitokiri Battousai, the most feared and skilled killer in 19th century Japan. In the midst of a blood bath, he meets the love of his life, Tomoe. Will he continue to fight his enemies in a killing rage or will she sheath his bloodstained sword?
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.
