In times of olde, humans live in constant fear of demons known as yoma. These vicious creatures can take the appearance and memories of humans they have devoured, thus blending into society as they freely feast on human flesh. The key to stopping the yoma lies with the tolerated yet feared Claymores - women who are half-demon, half-human, and fully fated to become the demons that they hunt. Meanwhile, in a village, the young Raki has been banished; his only crime was losing his family to the yoma. Raki is drawn to a Claymore named Clare, and together their journey begins. While Clare fights the yoma plaguing the land, can Raki help her in her struggle to retain her humanity?
if you liked the ass whooping style of gurren lagann you might also like claymore. if you're like me you will love both they are both very good anime and they have a main character who lost every family member they had early on in there life.
Area 11 is still under Britannian rule and the Elevens remain brutally oppressed; what’s more, their saviour, Zero, is nowhere to be found and all of Britannia believes the rebellion is finally over. Elsewhere, having lost the battle, Lelouch sets his sights upon winning the war – but the task is no easier since the Britannian forces have learned some valuable lessons all of their own. Not only have they discovered his identity and captured many of his Black Knights, but they now manipulate the memories of all of his friends. Worst of all, they have taken the most precious thing in his life – his dear sister, Nunnally. With his hatred for the Britannians stronger than ever before, Lelouch must now recuperate his forces and bring their rule of terror to an end.
The second part of Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann and the second season of Code Geass share the political instability that is usually seen in the aftermath of war and the creation of a new government. Rossiu's political trifles are comparable to Lelouch's hardships in maintaining the Empire of Brittania and that is where we can see the similarity in both titles. Other than politics, we also have a female supportive role that is strongly present in both titles in the form of Yoko Littner, Nia Teppelin, and Lelouch's ever faithful C.C.

Both animes contain the same type of heroes and villains. The villains believe that the world will be a better place if there are no humans; therefore they want to annihilate them. The heroes of both stories do not agree, they fight against the non-human villains. They fight, grow stronger, make new friends and comrades and lose them too. Both stories have a tragedy feel to them, but like always the good and not the evil wins in the end.

Both series have giant sword wielding mecha, but more than just that. Each has a magnificent story line, that will leave you wanting more each episode. Both tales are out of this world, (literally) with a hero that defies all odds. If you liked one, you would definitely enjoy the other.
