Along the way they make many enemies and friends, and travel between the modern and feudal eras.

Both the villains in InuYasha and Claymore are demons and both of the main characters are half bloods that have to deal with the consequences and what that implies for everyone around them. They each have a special sword with which they use to kill the demons. Kagome keeps InuYasha in check not only for his personality but also for his full demon behavior whereas Claire is kept in check by Raki. They have to try and stay in control of their human selves.

 The characters Tokko and Claymore both take into account an awareness of the world around them and try to fit into it even though they have some special powers that do not always let them adapt.  There are tons of fights scenes in each with plenty of gore to keep readers entertained.

Claymore and Freezing are about chicks who in order to fight monsters, become half-monster themselves. While Freezing starts of bad, after a few chapters it becomes evident how similar it is to Claymore. Those ladies in Claymore spend more time fighting the monsters than themselves, on the other hand chicks in Freezing are more pron to beat the s*** out of each other than fighting monsters. Also Claymore is stronger on gore, while Freezing has some annoying ecchi (at times). If you found the fighting series style appealing in one of those two manga, than you might want to check the other one too,

P.S. Freezing isn't that great story wise, but it does improve slightly after the first 10 or so chapters.

I couldn't help but think of Claymore while reading Superior. Yeah it's pretty much gut feel. The only obvious similarity between them, is the fact that both of those are medieval fantasy manga (though I'm sure there are plenty not so obvious similarities). Nonetheless, if you liked one of those two manga then you should definitely give the other one a try.

Claymore and Blood the Last Vampire each revolve around demons.  The series are dark and twisted following the struggles of the main characters as they are exiled from the people around them.
