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.

Claymore and Witchblade are about women whose destiny to fight evil is chosen for them. Both heroines serve a purpose unbeknownst to them but inevitably viewers are taken on this long ride as the women discover their past, purpose and future. If you like strong women who transform into buxom beauties who can kick butt, then you will definitely like these.

Kuratsu Kuratsu says...

Like powerful (you can even say supernatural) main characters with sad pasts? Then you will love Claymore and Witchblade. The main character in each fights for a bright future and tries to remain free. They both lost something in the process of becoming what they are today: memories, family, freedom, etc. You will love the drama, suspense, graphics, and fight scenes.

Claymore and Witchblade deal with a women’s destiny to fight evil. The stories revolve around a supernatural setting involving horrifically sad pasts of the two main women as they fight for a better future. At some points in the series the two main women even look the same on a close up view.

Claymore and Witchblade are both series featuring heroines that are weilded only by women. Laden with monsters and blade-play, either series would probably be enjoyed by someone who liked either.

The main characters are employed by world organizations to keep evil at bay. Both are very strong and do things their own way even when the organization doesn't quite approve and consequences will be waiting. If you liked one check out the other.

Claymore and Witchblade have diffrent stories but the concept it pretty much the same. Strong female leads that have supernaturel powers.

Both animes contain alot of gore, violence and barely any nudity.

If you like one of the two, you will probebly like the other.

Galadriel Galadriel says...

Both shows are very dramatic and with a dark mood, both shows contain bloody, gory, violent, horrific scenes with a lot of intense fighting, action scenes.

Both Witchblade and AnC are about a woman/girl that is trying to fight her destiny for a better future. Both of them became "supernatural beings" at a point in their lives when they encountered the "thing" that changed their lives for the worse.

wolfangel87 wolfangel87 says...

Ayashi no Ceres and Witchblade, are both about a girl/woman fighting for her own destiny and the people she cares about. Both are supernatural beings and the transformation has a more mature attitude and seems to be more capable all around while untransformed there is an innocent girl in place that relies on others for help.

chii chii says...

Both main characters have two different personalities. One side is weaker and confused while the other side is strong and will do anything to accomplish the goal. Both personalities are fighting for a better future for themselves and the ones they care about. If you liked one check out the other.

Galadriel Galadriel says...

Ayashi no Ceres and Witchblade feature a main protagonist having 2 personalities, a strong and violent one and a weak and vulnerable one. In both shows the main protagonist is fighting for her destiny and for the people she cares. If you like one be sure to check the other as well.

If an odd tale is what you're after, these two shows have it in spades. Witchblade and Speed Grapher both combine elements of sci-fi and real-to-life drama that will get you hooked from the first episode.

TheMulchmeister TheMulchmeister says...

Both series have a serious plot centering around a parent/parental figure protecting their child. Both seem to have characters with supernatural abilities who engage in erotic battles

paganchick paganchick says...

Both animes contain plots in which a female heroine is faced with dealing with a multitude of supernatural/genetically altered beings in combat. If you like one, you will more than likely enjoy the other.

Both animes have protagonists who call forth special powers. As they are the good guys, they use their powers to fight evil, be it akumas or a big company with bad intentions. They fight not only to protect their worlds, but also to protect their friends and loved ones. They try hard, but not always succeed.

Alucard1 Alucard1 says...

Both D.Gray-man and Witchblade center around a main character with enormous power related to a claw-type weapon.  Witchblade is much shorter and has a sad feel, whereas D.Gray-man is funny, yet dark.  If you want Witchblade with a larger cast of fighters watch D.Gray-man! =]

Ms. Jun Fudo used to be nothing more than a successful model, until fate intervened and thrust her unwillingly into the role of the Devil Lady. Once transformed, Jun becomes a murderous beast who destroys anyone (or anything) that opposes her; a power that the mysterious Asuka Ran wants to harness and use for an unknown purpose. With similar beasts emerging across the city and the body count piling, can Jun survive long enough to discover the truth behind her kin, and keep her human soul in control?
