In a land overrun by yoma - monsters that feed upon human innards and take on the appearance and memories of their victims - humans are little more than cattle awaiting slaughter. The only opposition to the yoma is The Organization, a group led by a council of mysterious men who send out their all-female warriors (known as claymores) to do their bidding. However, The Organization is not charitable; a town must pay an exorbitant fee for their services. Likewise, many of the claymores care little for those who they protect. Clare, the lowest ranked claymore, lives only so that she may one day avenge her mentor.
As odd as it may sound the Sura creatures from Kubera reminded me of the awakened beings from Claymore. Both are monsters that can take human from, but also have a form that doesn't look human at all. They appear intelligent, but can revert to acting based on emotions, instincts and desires way too easily. Both show little respect towards human life and even their own kin (though there are exceptions in Kubera). If you found those creatures interesting in one series, you might want to give the other one a try.
Note: Claymore features gore, but Kubera does not.
Both of these stories are set in amazing fantasy worlds that are magical and yet operate according to their own sets of rules. The main characters are both somewhat naive/idealistic but have a very established goal (Baam's goal is to find Rachel, Kubera's goal is, well, revenge) and are unusually gifted. Also, both main characters have an ally of sorts who is more calculating than they are, Koon for Baam and Asha for Kubera.
Additionally, even though they are entertaining and make you laugh at times, they both have a deeper side to them that is slightly dark, and you find yourself sympathizing with the 'enemy', or not being sure who the enemy is at all.
Anyway. Both of these stories were fantastic, and if you liked one, you should at least try the other.
