If you're looking for anime similar to Claymore, you might like these titles.
Born beneath the gallows tree from which his dead mother hung, Guts has always existed on the boundary between life and death. After enduring a terrible childhood, he spends his adulthood in brutal combat, pitting his strength against others in order to build his own. Life is simple enough for Guts until he meets Griffith, the inspirational, ambitious, and beautiful leader of the mercenaries, the Band of the Hawks. When Guts loses to Griffith in a duel, he is forced to join the group, and, despite himself, finds a sense of camaraderie and belonging amongst them. However, as Griffith leads his soldiers from victory to victory, the bloody wars and underhanded politics reveal a side to him that nobody quite expected. Can Guts, a simple warrior, defend those who have come to mean the most to him, all the while struggling not to lose to the darkness he has carried with him his entire life?
Both Claymore and Berserk are set in the same time period, both have huge amounts of large bloody sword fights, and both share the same genre of anime - Horror/Action. These anime may have a different plot, but they share similar aspects and present the story in a very similar way. To put it simply, if you like Claymore for its blood and random violence you will possibly like Berserk.
Finally there is an anime that manages to capture a great deal of the aura of Berserk. Watching Berserk always involved conflicting emotions. It was bloody grim atmosphere crossed with a bizarre sense of hope. Claymore has much of that same gore plus glimmer with the added benefit of being produced with modern animation techniques. Claymore places that same detailed darkness in cleaner more developed arena.
If you liked Claymore I think you would like Berserk because it's also about warriors who fight with medieval weapons. Also, if you liked to follow the development and progress of Clare's fighting skill, and like half-human and half-demon strength you really would like to follow Gatts in his quest.
Claymore is something like the feminine version of Berserk. In some parts they are really similar, as Clare from Claymore is like Guts in Berserk; both become outcasts and struggle for survival against many foes and demons. As hopeless as their situation is, they never give up hope and somehow they get out alive.
So if you like one of them, you will surely like the other, too.
Both Claymore and Berserk take place in a similar world. Clare and Guts are both on a journey to become stronger. They are both great and fast-paced action series that I think anyone could enjoy.
Both animes have a medieval setting which gives them a similar feeling. Also, in both anime, you get lots of action. However, this doesn't mean that the storylines are bad; both storylines are really good and are very interesting. If you liked one, I think you'll like the other.
I checked out Claymore due to seeing how often it was recommended for Berserk, and now I can see what people are talking about.
Berserk is remarkably similar to Claymore, but not necessarily related to plot. Sure, both have a protagonist with a big sword and there's plenty of body parts and blood, but that would be a shallow recommendation. Beyond these similarities, both just feel the same, from the style to the pacing to the flat-out coolness. I am absolutely positive if you liked one, you'd like the other.
Claymore is a very dark anime and so is Berserk. Both anime focus very much on the story and action, with a lot of twists and unexpected events.
Both Berserk and Claymore are about violent fights in a medieval era. Heroes wield huge swords, and the story-telling is done in a dark and sensitive fashion, focusing more on character development than pure gore.
Fight with yourself. Fight to protect the one who you love. Fight for revenge. Fight to remain the human amongst the beasts. Fight until the end.
Both Claymore and Berserk are about the same...
Not for the faint-hearted, both Berserk and Claymore provide a cocktail of violence, gore, swordplay, phenomenal personal attributes, beautifully choreographed action sequences, the supernatural and man's inner demons.
Do you like long fights, where you can feel the adrenaline rush to your head? Then go head on with big swords in Berserk and Claymore.
Claymore is newer, has better graphics, hotter and meaner babes, more "blood scenes" and (according to me) a better story; but Berserk is just as bloody, raw, and has scenes that make you want to cry. I can't imagine any better recommendation if you like that kind of style in anime; both Claymore and Berserk are my favorite anime in the fantasy genre.
So what more is there to say? Both are bloody, fantasy-based, medieval, have big swords, and awesome animation! If you liked one you'd absolutely like the other!
Swords, blood, and action are the three best words to describe Berserk and Claymore. Both shows are about the quest for vengeance - Guts for his ruined life and Clare for the death of her mentor. I am sure if you liked one you will like the other.
Berserk and Claymore are obvious recommendations for each other. Both have a protagonist who swings a huge sword, while heading into truly fearsome threats.
Blood-filled fights, special character-developing flashbacks, and a great story are just some of the things that are reminiscent in both. Though I'd say the manga of Berserk is a much much better recommendation for Claymore, Berserk's anime is by far sufficient for this recommendation.
Both Claymore and Berserk take place in medieval times and have oodles of gore and carnage. Demons are present in each and if you like action and heroic characters, watch the two of 'em!
Claymore and Berserk are very similar. Both protagonists are extremely powerful, the characters are similar (Clare in Claymore is pretty much Guts from Berserk, but with demon powers), and both anime are very bloody.
Both series are placed in fantasy world with demons, magic and sword. Both series are telling story of a single warrior. If you liked Claymore anime, and you're angry because it's too short, you should watch Berserk.
On the surface, both series seem very similar. They are both filled with lots of bloody violence (involving huge swords, no less) and they have a sort-of medival feel to them and both have very important flashback arcs (although Berserk is mostly a very long flashback in and of itself). That's were the similarities end, but if you liked one, you'll definitely like the other.
Both these animes seem to have very similiar worlds, in both the human civilization is not doing so well and there is lots of unrest. The main characters do not share much in common, except their icy personalities, but their job does, which is absolutely anhilate their advesary. Its been a long time since I saw berserk but after watching Claymore it was the first anime in my mind again. Both animes have gruesome worlds which is packed with violence, so if you like Claymore you should definetly check out Berserk too, they are very similiar animes in my mind.
Well, in my opinion Claymore is a remake of Berserk to some extent. It has a lot of things that were in Berserk and similarity is visable throughout the whole show. Well you will surely love Berserker after watching Claymore but I'm not sure if you would like Claymore after watching Berserker. Hmm thats questionable, nevertheless both series are really good and worth watching.
Swords, demons, and superb characterisation: if you liked those elements in one, then you will find them done just as well in the other. They both have that medieval setting going for them and a gory style to action but don't lose sight of the individuals involved. Definitely try one if you liked the other.
Although Claymore and Berserk focus on slightly different character development, there is a very similar feel to the changes within the main subjects; namely Clare in Claymore and Guts in Berserk.
Assuming the violence, gore and overall action is an attractive bonus, Berserk serves up the same dish.
Swords, fights, lots of blood, limbs and a somewhat intriguing story line as far as character development is concerned would be the main similarities.
I'm quite sure you'll like one if you like the other.
Dark medieval fantasy, fast paced combat, ridiculously large swords, and main characters that could take out entire armies by themselves. Throw in some demons and a vengeance complex for good measure, If that is what you are looking for then Berserk and Claymore will both fit the bill.
If you didn't get enough of the dark setting of Claymore and want to set on another journey to a world of violence, swordsmen and rage, Berserk is the obvious choise for you! While there are certainly significant differences in the series, making it possible that you'll much prefer one over the other, the feeling of the two are definitely similar, and hence giving Berserk a shot is more than worthwhile.
Its taken a few years, but it seems that the anime world has finally produced a successor for the violent action series Berserk. Claymore is as thrilling, gore filled and an emotional rollercoaster as Berserk.
Set in similar time periods, the sword fighting is more or less non stop with each show, only pausing to catch its breath whilst developing the characters into some of the richest I have seen in an animation. You both empathise and despise Claire and Gutts, seeing them struggle through life and making decisions that may not always be right.
I know that if you love one, you will certainly enjoy the other.
Claymore and Berserk are both brutal Series about fighting with Swords. If you liked one of them you should also watch the other because both are entertaining in a similarly way. :)
Berserk & Claymore's story might not have a lot in common but that doesn't really matter. Both anime has deep character development nicely put into a rough and unforgiven world. Both anime could be placed in the action/horror genre so if you liked one of them, there's a good chance that you'd like the other one as well.
Gore, Demons, Swords these three words instantly bring about the two names Berserk and Claymore, they're very similar in thier ways of bloodshed and overcoming such, even though Gutts is more of a overpowered maniac then Clare this doesnt stop Clare holding a close matched sword.
The Animation is profoundly different, in the aspects of dates, Berserk is still a very satisfying choice of imagery as its purports the medievil image view, thus makes the viewer easily adapted to the viewing. While Claymore had the more modern tinge, though somewhat the same.
Both excellent stories and can take the viewer into a 26 episode sitting spree :).
Both series are dark tales woven with threads of blood and violence. If you enjoyed either midieval gore-fest it's probable you'll enjoy the other.
Berserk and Claymore both follow a development of an extremly powerful main protagonist, who has its share of bloody battles. Even though their story differs, Gatsu and Claire have something in common. You gradually become attached to them as they strugle through hardship and deceit.
If you like one, don't miss the other.
Similar mood, setting and story with the exception that the protagonists are women in Claymore
Both anime are set in medieval times and all the characters kick so much ass it's insane! Wondering around fighting for what they believe is right and finding lots of opponents on their way. Both will leave you wanting more and more at the end. If you liked one check out the other.
Both anime's have a lot in common... first of all, the demonic aspect occurs in both, they are both set in an feudal type environment... and best of all, the protagonist in both series, carries around a Huge Friggin Sword. Lots of battles, and overall great progression of story in both. If you enjoyed either Claymore or Berserk... than watching the other is a MUST!!!
Claymore and Berserk share common ground in that they are both medieval fantasy settings featuring demons and lots of sword-fighting. The main characters of both are mercenaries (Berserk in a more traditional sense than Claymore).
The stories, characters and worlds are very, very different, but the action and much of the setting concept are similar. If you liked one, there's a good chance the other would interest you as well.
If you did like Claymore, you will also love to watch this one. A twisted story of a man who feels alive only on battlefield. His name is Guts.
With tragic past he moves from battlefield to battlefield to do only thing he knows. Swing his big sword against any opponent. One day he comes to across with Band of the Hawks, who try rob him. He lost this fight but the group leader of Hawks was impressed by his talents and decided to save his life and make him to join the band of the hawks.
Now can Guts find a new meaning for his life inside the band or is he just a tool for somebody to use?
When you watched Berserk you'll like to watch Claymore and that goes simply bothways. Both anime series are in a gloomy, grey world, medival period. You can watch many very bloody scenes and there very violence worlds there the strong will only survive.
The main characters Guts and Clare are fighters with a desire to revenge. They fight with huge swords and are throught the story, devoloping more skills with it. The characters are strong but they are simply working for someone; Guts is in the Band of the Hawk and Clare is in a "No name" organization that is organizing the Claymore's.
You can find very many action but not only in the both series, everyone will enjoy watching both.
Violence, demons, a medieval fantasy setting, great character development - Berserk and Claymore are as close as two series can get. They're also equally good.
Both have excellent characters, plot, and development... both shows make you attached to ALL the characters because they are truly tangible, the main characters are not perfect, in fact, they have HUGE flaws... and both shows are down right addicting... with characters that you have grown to love being able to be discarded at any moment.
and the ending of both... will leave you... really wanting to read the manga!
Plenty of bloodshed and fighting scenes. Though both shows go in depth with plot and backstory, there a vast amounts of action with contemporary dialog. A must for any anime fans' must see list.
An epic adventure where the struggles of a solemn and powerful warrior is the number one narrational priority; this is the main aspect that make Claymore and Berserk go hand in hand. They also give off a feministic touch with plenty of kick-ass women establishing themselves in a world packed with men who patronize them. But the similarities do not stop here; while both shows are very good they also feature awful endings. Despite their numerous virtues they come off as commercials for the Manga, and in that sense their similarities may not be as positive. Yet, if you liked either, I find it likely that you'll like the other as well.
These series each focus around epic battles with a large amount of gore and an overarching plot that takes a long time to reveal. If you like battles and gore, these series are a great match.
Both have a good dramatic story, serious attitude (instead of all the cute funny stuff most anime has these days) and a connection of loss/tragedy. I wish there was more out there like Berserk and claymore but I have yet to find any. There are some good but to a lesser extent. Berserk is by far the best thing I have seen, and claymore is up there (not as good as Berserk, but still real good).
These are both medieval/horror hybrids with decent animation. Both are unfinished from their manga counterparts and end with a big climax.
If you loved Claymore then you will also love Berserk (and the other way around). Both series have a badass main character with a big sword,and are set in a medival age.The main difference is that Claymore has more fantasy and magic elements then Berserk.Both series are masterpieces in my opinion,and one of my all time favourite anime.
Both are set in a fantasy medieval era and deal with the main character fighting, a lot. Both deal with monsters and demons but Berserk has more politics and intrigue while Claymore is more intense action. If you like a lot of blood and guts (hehe, Guts) with your killing alongside a great cast of characters you will like both Berserk and Claymore.
Both series have main characters whose lives are forever joined to the sword--that is, their main purpose in life, or what they have set out to make it as, involves dueling others with swords. Guts is a mercenary who fights when he has to and is recruited by the Band of Hawk to join them in their conquests across Midland. Clare is a half-demon, half-human specifically created to carry out extermination missions of yoma, demon beasts that hide among the unsuspecting public and feast on humans. Both Guts and Clare are solitary by nature, but their good deeds--usually out of nothing but pure "business"--attracts curious others to them, and unlikely companionships and camaraderie begins to bear fruit. If one like sword-wielding protagonists, duels, blood, violence, and demons all set in a medieval environment, then one may surely like either or.
Both shows take place in a fantasy world where its dangerous for everyone. Demons (or Yoma) in Claymore and Apostles in Berserk pose a significant threat. The main characters have had a tragic past that sticks with them as they try to cope with new relationships. Eventually the stories of both series focus on the main character's desire for revenge.
Berserk and Claymore. An obvious recommendation, right? Action. Fights. Big swords, brutal violence, and blood. Lots of blood.
But delving deeper, the recommendation still makes sense. Both series share a sense of darkness and despair, and a theme of exploring personal morality. Both wielders of giant swords, Claire and Guts, explore who they are and who they really want to be.
If you enjoyed either Claymore or Berserk, do yourself a favor and try the other. You won't be disappointed.
A) A fantasy/Medieval setting
B) Humanistic art. Wonderfully drawn.
C) A lot of blood and gore.
D) Amazing storylines and character development.
E) A brooding/powerful main character.
Two hardcore and slash shows. While Berserk is most likely more on the "darker" side of the two, both are still definitely a guy's "beat the crap out of them" type of show. Brutal, but each has a touch of emotion here and there.
If you like Claymore for its bloody fights, you should like Berserk as well. Berserk's storyline is more cohesive and fights are tactically more clever. Although, there's not as much horror in Berserk (until the end).
I agree. I agree. I agree. I agree. I agree. I agree. I agree. I agree. I agree. I agree. I agree. I agree.
It really gives the same vibe. It isn't completely black and white and they both have a dark side to them. Berserk being much darker of course.
Both are darker themed Sword animes that have excellent manga counterparts with a deep stories.
Both Claymore and Berserk share a similar art style, themes and both end without much explanation but are still satisfying to watch.
Berserk is getting a reboot thanks to Dark Souls the video game! Hopefully in the future, Claymore will also have a reboot as well. It deserves one. If you want to watch Berserk, please watch the Original Episodes. They for some reason made a badly drawn 3 piece movie that compresses all the episodes into 3 parts. They leave out a lot of the story. I however recommend watching the last part of the 3rd movie of Berserk though. Its pretty good and adds more to the ending. Not as much of a cliff hanger. The cliff hanger in the original series is bad. It kind of made me mad a little bit. But thats okay because its getting a reboot. Hopefully they dont go with the same crappy anime design they used in the movies.. It's awful and annoying. It's overly HD, bright and clunky motions. Doesn't fit the image of Berserk at all. Claymore has some great boss battles. The last one especially is epic. If you haven't gotten that far i recommend you do. Berserk so far is my favorite anime next to Hellsing and Claymore. If you like the old style original horror animes like I do. Then you'll enjoy Berserk. Great story! and it influenced one of the best games of all time, Dark Souls and Demon Souls!
Berserk is an excellent dark-fantasy anime. Claymore wishes it was Berserk but falls short. If you watched Claymore, Watch Berserk. It is way better.
While the shows are very different in terms of plot and characters; they do contain many similarities in terms of setting. Examples include their own take on the middle ages mixed with elements of tragedy and ever evolving characters, and of course over-sized swords.
Over a century ago, mankind was devoured by giant beings of unknown intelligence and origin known as Titans – creatures that eat humans alive indiscriminately and for no apparent reason. The remaining population has managed to survive the last hundred years only by building a multi-walled city capable of keeping the Titans at bay, training military recruits to patrol the perimeter and gather intelligence about their mysterious foe. Eren and Mikasa have lived a relatively peaceful life behind the city's walls, but when a massive Titan appears, smashing the outer barrier and unleashing a wave of terror, their lives are brutally changed forever...
Both anime share a general feeling of unease and hopelessness. If you enjoyed "Claymore" for the violence there is (will be) plenty of that to be found in "Attack on Titan". In both anime there are monsters that are trying to destroy mankind and in both anime there is a group of "soldiers" who fight them.
Both shows also share a similar color palette and animation style.
If you liked one you should like the other.
Very similar mood, monsters/titans invading human territory and feeding on them. Very in your face brutality with lots of fighting and deaths. If you like serious animes with no mercy, then this is for you.
If you liked Claymore you might like Attack on Titan. Both anime are in fantasy settings featuring swords and monsters, both seem to highlight neigh impossible to win wars, with humans cowering in fear from some sort of monster which feeds on them, and include a focus of the story on characters who's job it is to battle those monsters to protect humanity. There are other similarities but those would be spoilers.
Set in worlds where humans live in a constant state of fear, both Shingeki no Kyoujin and Claymore feature highly specialized warriors battling monsters for the sake of humanity. Both share a cold, cruel world outlook, and an atmosphere of futility and violence. I think fans of either show would enjoy the other.
Both have a very dark atmosphere. I also find the art to be similar in some ways. Plenty of blood and gore to go around. I just started Attack on Titan but I can already tell I'll like it as much as Claymore.
If you liked Claymore (raki excluded), then you'd probably enjoy Attack on Titan. Both are very violent, dark, action based animes. While I was watching Attack on Titan, Claymore was the first anime that came to mind. Give it a chance and perhpas you'll see why.
Both series are set in grim, medieval time where humanity struggles against its man-eating nemesis. The main focus of both shows would be on humanity’s defenders (both are some sort of military) and their struggle to survive against all odds. There’s blood, there’s violence and there’s revenge, so if you’re a fan of one it wouldn’t hurt to check out the other one.
Both these series have similar settings and the same bleak tone created by the need to fight a powerful enemy against all the odds. A sense of futility is conveyed in both, with revenge and violence being strong themes throughout. Strong female characters are also prominent in both series. Any more details would e spoilers, but i think it's a safe bet that if you enjoyed one, you will enjoy the other.
Both anime showcase unknown creatures inhabitating the world. With people willing to fight with said creatures and are some how related.
I have watched all of Claymore and I'm currently in the middle of watching Attack on Titan. I would have to say the two series compliment each other nicely. They both have similar color tones and fantastic battles. In both, you find that your main protagonists endure transformations into unhuman forms while struggling to harness/control their powers.
Both Attack on Titan and Claymore are about monsters eating people and someone who is trying to stop them .Both shows are really creepy and in the both shows the buildings look old.In the both shows someone very important to the main character dies and he/she becomes a warrior to avenge her.
Both share the same feeling of hopelessness and absolute despair. I would say that shingeki no kyojin (attack on titan) is more violent, and a bit less childish at the begining (no babysitting). Both are scary violent and pwetty good.
Just like totally - atmosphere is the same, setting, degree of darkness, amount of blood... only the claymore women with big swords are replaced by soldiers with normal swords who can swing around like crazy.
I don't think I've ever seen two series so similar to each other. If you like one you will most likely also like the other.
Both anime's are great and quite voilent, so be prepared! Somtimes they are bloody as wel, with thor off limps and such. Evenso, I reccoment both!
Both of them are dark fantasy with a decent story and intriguing characters. Both of them take themselves rather seriously, so no over the top silliness that doesn't fit, and no senseless fan service (that I know of.) The action is stellar, the music is good, and overall, these are very well put together animes.
Both of these series delve into many dark themes, which is not so much due to the 'showing' as the 'telling'. Both also take place in a medieval European setting with swordsmanship and similar weaponry and depict conflict for what it is - full of bloodand gore with little remorse for the fallen.
If you liked one, the other should be something to look into!
Both anime show a very similar theme of "humanity being plauged by physically stronger beings." Both anime show a like soldier-class person who can slay these monsters. Claymore may be older but it's a very good anime and has strong, intense emotion and battles, the same is to be said of Attack on Titan. Both are amazing and I would highly recommend either one.
If you enjoyed either Claymore or Attack on Titan, give the other one a look. Both anime feature worlds where humanity is facing a much more powerful enemy that has the capacity to destroy the entire human race. Both anime are dark themed and serious, as well as brutal and violent. But the spark of hope of victory against tremendous odds is never quite extinguished.
Both shows highlight a solution that could compromise the integrity and even the very humanity of the fighters and heroes of mankind.
Both shows delve into the morality of killing, and ponder questions of right and wrong, the nature of good and evil. Just how far is one person allowed to go? How far is too far? How much is too much and what is the value of sacrifice?
Intriguing and thought-provoking, fans of either show would do well to check out the other. I'm sure the new show would also be as well appreciated!
Both heavy on combat and action. Both raw and brutal as well. Adults only. Kids stick to Naruto for now.
Both anime have people fighting against monsters using swords, while the human race fears them. Also the general mood is very similar.
Both are dark action series where the main characters face off against monsters.
In both shows there is a sense of futility about the situation, coming from both the difference in power between the protagonists and the monsters, as well as the nagging fears that humans may be the true monsters after all.
The series have similar settings, with similar levels of technology found in the worlds.
If you like one you should try out the other.
Both Claymore and AOT take place in mideval worlds populated by monsters who eat humans. They also follow a protagonist with the power to stop these monsters, but their powers are feared by normal society. Both series are very grim, and what little glimmers of hope the characters are allowed to bask in are cut short quickly.
Many common themes and similarities in visual style (albeit Claymore is a bit older). If you love one, then chances are the other will also do it for you.
Both Claymore and AOT are very similar for one both are set in the medieval times, where humans are fighting against man eating monsters. Both animes have alot of fun kickass action scenes and both also have really badass female characters.
I agree. I agree. I agree. I agree. I agree. I agree. I agree. I agree. I agree. I agree. I agree. I agree. Probably for the same reasons as everybody else.
I see a similar vibe going on between Attack on Titan
Claymore has their Yomas, while Attack on Titan have their Titans.
Their are a specailized group of people who take down these human-eating monsters.
Both main characters have had their families torn apart(literally) by these creatures
The female leads both swear to protect the male leads.
I prefer Attack on Titan over Claymore, only because of the anime design, but thats just me. I deff recommend Claymore
The action and story in both are twisted in a cant stop watching kinda way.I watch Claymore twice and it was great both times. Attack on Titan ended with a bad taste in my mouth, but waiting for more.
Well, Attack on Titan is in the line of gore animes with brutal scenes. If you want a similar anime, I would prefer Claymore. Although Claymore is also sword fighting and such, it is not mythical like Attack on Titan having titans in their era. But if you're really in to gore animes, these animes are perfect to satisfy your crave for brutal and sadistic scenes. :> I hope you'll have fun watching and reading.
Both anime presents high amount of drama and gore/bloody/epic fights.I would say Attack on titan is definetly slower in the term of Action.
both will make you stare souless at your screen trying to process wtf just happend. Both series are fucking epic!
The thing that I enjoyed about both Attack on Titan and Claymore was the actual suspense that comes in each battle when anyone can die. No one is safe, therefore there is actual tension in fights.
Also human eating monsters, but I'm fairly certaint that people don't have interests that specific.
in both anime you won't who is going to die nextlets not forget those scary monsters(titans) in attack on titan and awakened beings in claymore...both of them are capable of giving gooesbumps
Both action packed, involves the slaying of human-like creatures and beautifully animated
if you like a dark, mature anime where people kill monsters with swords watch attack on titan. It is far more mature, fleshed out, and visually appealing than Claymore
Both anime have action, violence and revenge don't know if claymore can be categorised in military as well but its close enough. Attack on titan's animation can not be compared to claymore neither there are as many characters in claymore but the plot is similar as the main character loses someone who was precious to them to some creature so he/she seeking revenge gets stronger and is aided by companions to acheive their goal.
Both are about battles with powerful, enigmatic monsters, with "our" side using simple weapons. There is a great sense of poignance in these stories. The warriors mostly assume they are going to die soon, but for a purpose that leaves no other option open to them. The artistic style is 100% serious, with none of the comedic bits that intrude on so much otherwise good anime.
They feel the same. Its humans vs monsters they don't understand and then they find out things are not exactly what they seem at first (lots of struggle and tragedy mixed in). Also great animation.
Attack on Titan and Claymore have many simularities, but the main theme of Human vs Monsters is the clear winner to tie these togther. Both have elements of violence as our characters fight for their lives and they both battle monsters of unknown origin that we learn about throughout the story. While Claymore only have Female fighters Attack on Titan have both Men and Woman fighting alongside eachother. Both are great Anime with twist and turns in their adventure.
If you like like 'em with fighting and an outside source monster... these fit.
Action with alarming depth and emotion in story, a likely match and two fabulous anime - like one, likely like the other.
In world where flesh-eating monsters roam the streets, only one organization has the means to save civilization from annihilation: Red Shield, a specially-organized unit designed to fight these monsters, and the only weapon that can destroy them: Saya. Awakened from a 30-year sleep, Saya is thrust into a modern world which she has no memories of, and is troubled by a past filled only with bloodshed and sadness. With the undying love and support of her family and friends, she struggles to gain the strength to move forward and regain the pieces of her shattered memories.
If you liked Claymore and are looking for a good old fashioned swordslashing blood-filled anime, Blood+ is for you. Blood+ has a better storyline than Claymore, which will appeal more to people wanting more substance with their violence.
Both Claymore and Blood+ have generally the same concept and the animation looks very similar. The main character in both anime is a girl who kills off monsters to save humans. Both are very emotionally-attaching series.
Both Claymore and Blood+ are full of demon-slaying action. Both series also have an in-depth story that keeps you wanting more. Both series have a female lead character that has a soft side but can be brutal at times.
Both Blood+ and Claymore have heroines with unique abilities, fighting and slashing demons. These girls have to fight monsters outside and inside alike, as part of them wants to join the monsters in their bloodshed. The only thing keeping them together are their friends.
Both Claymore and Blood+ are about fighting monsters that feed on human flesh, and can turn themselves into the human form. What is particularly similar in both stories is the that the leading characters are female warriors who happen to be (partly or completely) the very monsters they are fighting against.
Swords, monsters, and drama; those are the three best keywords that describe the similarity between Blood+ and Claymore. In both, the main female character wields a sword to slay monsters and protect humanity. Also, the character relationships are very alike.
Blood+ and Claymore can be looked at as basic hack-n-slash anime, in which a strong female protagonist fights fearsome demons (both inside and outside). It isn't uncommon for blood to be spilled during all of the sword fights either.
However, they can also be looked at from a storytelling point-of-view. Blood+ definitely has more of a story, but the characters have a similar dark and sad past, and have seemingly impossible goals. What separates them from each other is the story it takes to get to those goals.
If you like a strong female lead who deals out death with a sword, along with a healthy dose of demon-slaying, then Claymore and Blood+ are for you! Both series have these features in spades. The female leads both have aspects within them of the creatures they hunt, and the plots deal with how they cope in a world that doesn't fully trust them. Claymore and Blood+ both have very strong plots and instantly recognisable, visually-pleasing graphics. If you enjoy one you will surely enjoy the other.
Both Claymore and Blood+ have a dark, cold, and silent sword-wielding main female character that kills demons for revenge. Both anime have a very good plot and animation; you'll love them both!
Although set in different times, Blood+ and Claymore have a very dark and broody feel about them. The main characters in both (sword-wielding young ladies) are treated as the chosen one, but human emotion and the concept of family often gets in the way of the main character's quest. There is also the presence of governing organisations in both Claymore and Blood+ that at times appear to have their own agenda, and do not always follow the interests of the heroine.
Therefore, both heroines face a struggle between being able to remain human whilst embracing the demonic powers that will help them to be victorious . Add to this some excellent action scenes and a discovery of a hidden past and you have two excellent series that share many features but remain enjoyable in their own right.
Both have a character fighting against demons that are also part of themselves. A dark theme runs through both and the fighting involved is bloody in both. The main character of each have human companions who cannot fight as well as them or do the things they do but refuse to give up on them.
Claymore and Blood+ are very alike; both are dark and serious and have characters who fight demons. The only difference would be that in Blood+ only the main character fights demons, and in Claymore a whole organisation does. They also both use swords.
These two series revolve around female protagonists who inevitably must fight that which they are: demons. Both series do this in a way which captivates the viewer through an intriguing and unpredictable plot, stopping them from becoming your typical slash-fest. The character development also contributes to this based on the bonds & ties they unwittingly make with others and a sense of duty they must follow at risk to their own human sanity. If you found these aspects attractive in one, then undoubtedly you'll be drawn to the other like a moth to a flame. Although I will say that Clare (Claymore) is a lot more willing to fight than Saya (Blood+) which makes her story the more action based of the two.
In both of these series, the main protagonists are girls whose jobs are to slash up monsters. Both series have a similar look to it. Riku and Raki, supporting characters, even look similar. Blood+ is more emotional and has better character development and plot, but essentially they are very similar in nature.
These 2 animes are animes with loads of fancy swordplay that would be enough to keep you glued to your seat for hours! The plot is somewhat similiar where the main character fights for their survival againts monsters. Some sad sacrifices of friends here and there but overall an anime good enough for you =)
Both series deal with a single female protagonist of vaguely mysterious origins using her special powers to chop humanoid flesh-eating monster things into pieces with a sword. Both series feature shadowy figures leading from the back of the monster hoard. While Blood+ may have slightly less gore, it has more characters, slightly more character development and something resembling an actual conclusion. The story can, at times, be slightly more tedious and some episodes may even deserve the dubious title of "filler." Blood+ presents a grand, sweeping conspiracy to counter Claymore's protagonist centered plotline and backs it up with an excellent soundtrack. It also features a number of flawed, tragic, or just plain creepy romances that make a nice change from Claymore's "Raki-Clair is-this-even-a-romance romance.
In both Blood+ and Claymore the main character is female with a nasty sword. They also are partially what thay are fighting against, (demon). If you really liked the demon slaying in one of theese animes i think you would like the other.
If you liked the fighting scenes and characters of the anime you saw, I bet you fell in love with this series as well, after all, the character's personalities are similar and the fighting scenes are excellent!!
Bothseries are about girls with special powers that can kill demons. In both series the girls are also half demon, and it is their quest to destory all the evil demons in the world. Both had a sad past, and they both are trying to seek revenge. If you'd like the first serie, you'd like the other one as well because the story of both series is pretty simmelear
The series Blood + and Claymore involve strong female leads that are aloof and cold up front but display tender moments in them. Each takes part in slaying the demons of the world but also have to look within themselves to control their own demons. Both have a fantasy like quality to them with intense animation.
Both have strong female protagonist that are connected to the creatures they hunt and held together by it's friends that help them keep their humanity.
"OMGZ THEY ARE BOTH GIRLS WHO ARE NOT FULLY HUMAN AND BOTH HAVE SWORDS AND KICK THE SHIT OUT OF MONSTERS OMG RUN ON SENTENCES NO PUNCTUATION!"
- Almost every 16 year old with a keyboard in America.
However, there's some truth to the above statement but I'd like to get into Blood+. If you really liked Blood+ and thought the story was riveting, loved the gore and the fight scenes, and loved Saya as a bad ass monster killing female main character, then you'll absolutely LOVE Claymore. Now, what I said about Blood+ is giving it a little too much credit. Don't get me wrong, I liked the show, but I just felt that Saya didn't take charge enough for me(at least till the end) and I cringed at a lot of the dialog. There was also just way many too cliche moments and typical "feel good story" music during the first half of the series. It's at least underwhelming for an anime with an R rating.
Claymore's R rating on the other hand is well deserved. It is WAY more violent and bloody than Blood+ and the langue is a lot more coarse as well. Claire and Saya both come into their own a bit midway into the shows but Claire has a lot more depth to her in my opinon and is a lot more entertaining. Both girls are trying to rid the world of monsters, even though they are both types of monsters themselves.
All and all, If you liked Blood+ and don't mind a shorter series with more violence and swearing, then chances are you'll love Claymore. If you watched Claymore first and are expecting a lot from Blood+, chances are you'll be let down a bit, but will still enjoy the series.
Claymore and Blood+ have a similar concept, a female protagonist fighting with demons, vampires, monsters to protect humankind, this is their fate and it was forced upon them, they did not choose it. Both animes feature alot of bloody and violent scenes, alot of gore and horror scenes as well. If you like bloody violent animes then be sure to check out both Claymore and Blood+.
Determined female protagonists, human eating monsters, and lots of blood. The theme of protecting loved ones is present in both animes.
Both series are full of blood and female characters that are very skilled with sharp metal objects.
this anime is vary goob blood+ and claymore are about girls who must fight demons but there is also a a bigger thing they must fight with both have companys they " work for" but they just want to get out of it but for diff reasons there are many recomendindg the two so its a must see for both yaya
Both of these animes have sword-wielding female wariors and similar atmospheres of intensity. There's plenty of gore and violence. Claymore and Blood+ also happen to be two of the best animes I've seen. Saya and Claire both face extreemly powerful demon-like beasts. The two protagonists also draw their powers from a dark source.
Both Saya and Claire have to defeat their ultimate enemy. Also both anime have a great plot, female protagonist and plenty of gore.
BOTH OF THE ANIMES ARE DARK BUT REALLY GOOD. I HAVE GIVIN BOTH OF THEM 5 STARS BECAUSE THEY ARE MASTERPEICES. BUT THEY HAVE 2 DOWN SIDES, ONE IS THAT THEY HAVE TO END TO SOON AND TWO IS THAT THEY WILL RUIN ALOT OF OTHER ANIME SHOWS FOR YOU. ONCE YOU WATCH THEM THEY ARE SO GOOD THAT YOU WILL RAISE YOUR STANDARDS AND MUCH OF THE SHOWS THAT WILL HAVE ONCE CAUSED YOU JOY WILL NO LONGER. SO THE CHOICE IS UP TO YOU TO WATCH THE BEST SHOWS EVER, WHO KNOWS YOU MIGHT NOT EVEN LIKE THEM BUT MANY WILL.
Both are action/horror series featuring not-quite-human girls fighting monsters with swords.
There's so much in common with these series, in both the main character is a female sword fighter with unique abilities to destroy the monsters and she's not human at all, Both involve a journey to find peace both have a little romance too.
Both Claymore and Blood+ involves a lot of action dealing with the supernatural specifically demons. The main female protagonist in both series are literally weapons with extraordinary abilities. The only thing that keeps them from going insane are their companions. Additionally, both series' main female protagonist also has a dark past that is filled with tragedies and sorrow.
Blood+ is more dramatic and involves vampires, whereas Claymore is more of an action-adventure about mysterious demons called "yoma." The use of art in both is done spectacularly, and both contain unique, well thought-out plots—much different from the generic shows made nowadays.
If you are going from Blood+ to Claymore, a more aggressive and intense show awaits you, while the transition from Claymore to Blood+ can be a letdown only if you thrive on scenes filled with gore. The length of Blood+ is wonderful as Claymore is shorter. Either way, if you are a fan of one show, you will most likely be a fan of the other as the action in both are very entertaining.
For Kouta and Yuka, finding the bloody naked young girl on the beach would change their lives forever, for better or for worse. Unable to speak or function as a normal human being, she is named Nyu by the duo, and taken into their home in an effort to save her. But what neither teenager knows is that this innocent young girl is actually a killing machine -- an experiment gone terribly wrong -- and it is only a matter of time before the murderer in her awakens again...
Although both Elfen Lied and Claymore take place in very different settings I think if you like one, you might like the other as well. Both anime have a significant amount of gore (used in different ways however), but the central theme that I think might appeal to people is the strong central characters: both are strong, cold women who have suffered a lot, and wield a lot of power.
Both anime also have similar themes about righteousness, suffering, justice and injustice.
Both Claymore and Elfen Lied are bloody and mature, with highly emotional content based upon the pressures of growing up in a harsh environment, and the effect of that childhood upon the characters' minds. The heroines are complex characters, and the fights are violent but beautifully drawn.
Claymore can be considered a darker version of Elfen Lied; they don't share a lot of similarities, but they do have several of the same basic concepts. You nearly become the main character because of how well their feelings come across. There's also a lot of gore and violence in both.
Elfen Lied has quite a bit of fanservice, so watch it if you need something a bit more lighthearted. Claymore stays true to its dark and gloomy style, so watch it if you want to be kept on your toes with story that toys with your emotions.
Each main character in Elfen Lied and Claymore are the strong type female role, fighting to deal with the suffering and pain of their pasts which are very sordid. The effects of their childhood experiences create the story that is now being told and strives to explain why they take the actions they do. The character’s back story reveals a great deal about the character portrayed in the series.
If you liked the blood and gore of Claymore, then you'll love Elfen Lied. Both these animes have a mix of inhumanity, and organizations that are up to some bad business.
If you liked claymore, you should like Elfen Lied, they have these things in common (note that they have probably more but what i can think of in particular is this) They have a extreme amount of blood, they are for the most part about women that have superhuman powers (or so you could say) the main characters (considering Clare and Lucy/Nyuu) have both got an awful past, finally the story is great (in both claymore and elfen lied) i figure if you like either one of those you should like the other from what i saw in those 2 anime.
Both series has graphic violence, with girls killing, spraying blood and multiple deaths at scenes.
Both also has a fine romantic viewpoint.
These two anime are similar, because they both are about mutation of humans struggling to fit in. Both give you that sad twinge when you're watching it.
Killer girls created by corporations with horrible pasts that has made them into the killing machines they are today. Claymore's animation is more dark and sinister where Elfen Lied is more colourful yet still gives you that sinister feeling. If you liked one check out the other.
Both of those anime are strong on gore. Heck you can see cuted/ripped off limbs in almost every episode. So if you into gore, those two shows should satisfy you, but if your not into such stuff, stay away from them.
Both series have a very strong female with deadly powers as the lead role. However, Elfen Lied contains some humor while Claymore remains fairly serious. With the mix of gore and a compelling storyline, if you watch one of these anime, you must watch the other!
Both of these anime are extremely dark, contain a very large amount of violence/gore, are focused around a lot of "not-quite-human" beings, and have several extremely deranged characters.
both Claymore and Elfen Lied feature alot of bloody violent, gory scenes, both of them are heavy on emotional content and both animes feature main female protagonists possessing supernatural abilities and make use of them in different circumstances, also both animes feature main protagonists with a past covered in sorrow and painful memories. Though the action takes place in different settings in what i mentioned above this two are quite alike so if you like one of this shows be sure to check the other one as well.
These two anime take place in different settings with different atmospheres, but they have a dark tone to them. Violence and blood are rampant in both. They also focus on the pasts and powers of female characters that are struggling with who they are.
Both Elfen Lied and Claymore have some pretty powerful women who take orders from an organization and are given numbers instead of names for the most part. Both anime are very interesting tales of what it means to be human, and both involve a lot of blood and gore.
Elfen Lied and Claymore are both violent, dark stories where young women get amazing powers at a terrible cost. With strong female leads, weak male sidekicks, solid action, and a dash of gore, these really are a good match.
Both anime have a gruesome and sad story line, and neither lack in depth of characters or plot
I agree. Violence, gore, superpowered fights with a touch of purity, innocence, and justice. That's what you're going to get from these two amazing anime. If you liked one I'm sure you'll love the other.
recommending both of these, cause i really love them both
it is pretty different stories between them, but what makes them both fun is that there is a lot of action and blood, which im usually look after when im starting to watch a anime
The Holy Grail War is a battle between seven magicians who each summon a mythical hero to fight for their cause. Shirou, a twice orphaned high school boy, had so little magical talent that his foster father did not bother teaching him about the war and its meaning. Thanks to that lack of foresight, Shirou finds himself in a bit of a pinch when he accidentally summons a hero of the strongest class, and is sucked into the fray. The Grail grants the winner any wish they have. But driven by an unyielding sense of justice and self-sacrifice, for what will Shirou fight?
FSN and Claymore are rather different in storyline, settings, and characterization, but they both have some great action with women with big swords. Beyond that I'd just have to say this is the way I feel: if you liked one, you'd like the other.
Both FSN and Claymore have a male and female duo as the main characters. Shirou and Raki have the same backbones - they want to help their women out in fights, even if they are weaker than them. If you liked Fate/stay night, you'd also like Claymore (or vice versa).
In those anime, main characters are women warrior. It's not all, in both anime is magic, sword and other fantasy things. The only one defect is this, that FSN is not settled in fantasy world known from books and games.
Clamore and Fate/stay both have the lead characters setup as a strong girl with a massive sword and a weak guy which wants to become stronger to protect her.claymore i would say is more gritty with more gore and a higher kill count, and fate/stay has a beautiful newer animation style.Although quite different in plot if you loved one you i think will love the other.
Claymore and Fight Stay Night both involve a great deal of action and magnificent fighting scenes. The female characters, Saber in Fate Stay Night and Claire in Claymore have similar personalities in their actions towards fighting. They also express the same thoughts concerning their male companions.
Both series are based heavily on amazing action scenes with a deep story behind them. Over the course of each series the characters are made to question their reasons for fighting and forced to find a new direction in life.
these animes are very simular in the fact that they all have a normal human boy being engaged unexspectantly with anouther world. They all have action, and some romance. The main charicter(guy is always week but strong willed and wants to help, and protect the girl that is actualy protecting him. In all of these animes the girl thinks nothing of the boy but slowly finds them selfes wanting to protect the ordanary boy, and faling emotionaly atached to them. if you liked one of these animes you should like the others
Both of these series follow female warriors and their male companions. They both have this extremely bad-ass feel while showing that they both have a sensitive side. These two anime are very similar in this aspect, but totally different in every other. Give them both a try.
Both FSN and Claymore are dark fantasy dealing with unknown powers and potentially deadly adversaries. The bonds between the main characters are unusual in that while the men of these stories are not visibly strong their character more than makes up for any apparent shortcomings. In both cases there is a purity of intent in even the most basic of human desires. I felt that both of these stories belong in my collection
So we have similar main character duo in both Claymore and Fate/Stay Night, the weak guy and strong girl. Then we have their slowly developing relationship. Did I mention that both shows have plenty of action, fights and gore. If you sum that up, you get two similar shows and there is a big chance that you will like one if you enjoyed the other.
Both are fantasy, and both are about fighting pretty women :> If you liked this anime, u just have to see the other one as well :)
Both these anime are interesting in the fact that the lead female kicks so much ass and has a cold heart to almost everything except the main male eventually. But the main male will drive you nuts and you WILL want to murder him. Super similar characters with totally different plots. If you liked one check out the other.
Both animes have similar character development and have a girl with a sword (that also looks similar).(personally i prefer claymore out of these animes)although fate stay night was too enjoyable.another similarity is that both animes have a dark atmosphere, this is only at some points with fate/stay, but claymore the darkness is throughout all the anime.
The three things that draw these series together are their characters (and their development), the action, and the mysterious organization pulling strings. Both of these series revolve around a strong female lead that fights with everything she has, even to the point of it killing (or transforming) her. Also, the females follow a similar development, having no show of emotions to start, but slowly given them. Also, the male leads have have a similar mentality of "I fight to protects other, but I don't like violence in general." Also, each of these stories revolve around a lot of violence. Finally, there is a large, mysterious organization pulling strings behind each of the stories.
Both have female warriors as main characters, but Claymore's setting is much more dark and...lethal.
Likewise, both male lead's are driven by "I must protect you! (even though you're a trained killing machine, armored and armed to the teeth)" mindset, which can provide some character development.
If you enjoyed one, you will surely enjoy the other.
Both Fate/Stay Night and Claymore's main characters are a woman who fights with a big sword and a weak guy who tries to be strong in order to protect the woman.The bot guys' parents are dead and the both women have saved the guy's life.They both have some really good action scenes and a little of romance.
But, Claymore is a bit creepier than Fate/Stay Night.
Both are dark action shows with a character dynamic of sword-wielding female lead protecting a mostly useless male lead, who helps her out on more of an emotional level.
In present day England, a war is being fought. The average citizen does not notice, but vampires are running rampant among the populace, and it's up to the Hellsing organization to contain the bloodsucker threat, using even their own weapons against them. Alucard, a vampire himself, is the best agent the organization has to offer, answering only to Integra Hellsing herself. No one knows much about this mysterious figure fighting against the occult, but things starts to change after he “recruits” a new agent to the establishment...
Both have a great plot and style; I see a lot of things in Claymore that made Hellsing so great.
The main character is being followed by a human personality that believes in him/her. They both deal with a struggle between good and evil, and of course, deaths on the good side.
While Hellsing and Claymore are different as far as plot, both have a certain coolness and style to them that can't be beat. Hellsing is a lot more crude animation-wise, but still, it and Claymore have an undoubtedly awesome style. If you liked one, try out the other.
Both Claymore and Hellsing have unnatural beings which power up the story line, and each anime keeps you surprised each time you learn something new. Each deals with the fight between light and dark, with both main characters using the other side's "method" to defeat them.
Claymore and Hellsing present a unique view on monsters. For example, vampires and monsters are often shown as being uber-powerful creatures, but Hellsing and Claymore take them to the next level; they've never been this awesome and powerful! Claymore has an original explanation of how the monsters came to exist, as well. In general, the feelings of darkness and fear you'll get are alike in both anime.
Seras Victoria (Hellsing) and Raki (Claymore) have both seen much bloodshed already in their young lives, and have both been victims of its awful consequences, events which are shown at the very beginning of both series. As a result of this, Raki decides to follow the demon-slayer Clare, and Seras Victoria begins to see Alucard as her natural master, presenting us with the beginnings of a potentially strong-bonded ‘Master and Underling' relationship. In this relationship we often see an uncharacteristic level of care for the underling by the master, implying that both Clare and Alucard are not as inhuman as they would have everyone believe, yet their quite frankly demonic powers would make one question the level of humanity residing within each character. Raki and Seras Victoria must also endure the pain of seeing their masters commit themselves fully in each battle, putting their very lives on the line each time, whilst still thirsting demonically for even more bloodshed.
There is also the influence of an organization in guiding our main characters on their adventures, but we will often be forced to question if the organization is merely using our protagonists and do they actually have no deeper care for them beyond requirements of battle? Both plots are twisted frequently, and friends may appear to be enemies and vice versa before the end of the journey is reached. The sounds and visuals we are presented with are used cleverly and appropriately to build a sinister and foreboding environment for the story to be played out within. Expect plenty of bloodshed and limb hacking in both Anime, with some special techniques thrown in that help to keep each battle interesting and different from the one before.
Claymore and Hellsing are very similair in many ways. Nonstop action, an intricate plotline, and an outstanding government group dedicated to destroying Demons and Ghouls to protect the innocent. Violence and humor are both present in small doses in each Anime and characterization is top notch. All in all, if you enjoyed Hellsing, you would do well to watch Claymore, and if you enjoyed Claymore, you would do well to watch Hellsing.
Both animes series are all about killing monsters in claymore they are yoma and in hellsing the just are vampires but both have good story lines...overall they both kick ass
Both are very violent and both are very well written. Rather than a solid reason, it's really just a hunch that you will like them both. I enjoyed both very much.
Again we have a secret, nameless society who have found an edge on the enemy. Hellsing uses Vampires to kill Vampires and Claymore uses half demon hybrids to kill demons.
Intrigued by things that go bump in the night, and you don't live in a black and white world? Sometimes blood-thirsty monsters make the best heroes. Both of these series are set in innovative worlds where you get to cheer for your hero to prove that s/he is the strongest inhuman killer.
Both have gore scenes grat action ,great fighting scenes ... And very interesting storyline ... In both anime main characters are very interesting with own way of thinking ... GReaT ANIME FOR DEMONS SLASHING FANS :)Anime for people who like blood , flying bodies and superpowers ... For people who like very good characters with interesting history ... For anime fans with strong nerves ...
Another dark style sort of anime. Both are quite violent. I felt towards the end of claymore it starts to fall behind compared with hellsing. Nevertheless, if u liked hellsing, i think u are likely to enjoy claymore or vice versa.
Hellsing and Claymore share many things in common, both of them have similar plot elements, both of them are intense horror, bloody, violent shows featuring superhuman beings (like vampires in Hellsing and demons in Claymore). In both animes we see main protagonists possessing supernatural powers, making use of them to protect man-kind and kill their own kind. Both animes deal with a struggle between good and evil. If you liked one of this shows then be sure to check the other one as well.
While the two may differ in terms of plot both give off an amazing atmosphere that just draws the viewer in that makes it hard to stop watching at any point. With both stories taking place in supernatural worlds and following people who's job it is to elimanate the threats that threaten the humans that live in that world.
Both Claymore and Hellsing involve an organization that hunts and destroys a demonic-like force. And the hunters of these organizations have the blood of the creature they hunt. Both anime are dark and gritty with a twisted sense of humor.
Dark twist and amazing story line, these two are similar, mature and actiony. Lots of justice, gore, learning, and epicness.
Hellsing, just like Claymore, has a inhuman main chacter who has a poor reception form their peers becuase of a certain attriubute. Both have a 'innocent' character follows our portagnist and learns the truth of the world they live in along the journey coming to their own conclusions about life.
The anime both have similar styles in both writing and animation. They both deal heavilty in the realms of the supernatural and tend toward the darker side of storytelling. Both are animated in a similar, Gothic, style.
Fifteen-year-old Ichigo Kurosaki is a typical teen with fighting skills, two caring sisters and a special trait: he can see ghosts. However, when Ichigo and his family find themselves under attack by a huge beast, Ichigo discovers that there’s more to the supernatural world than the everyday specter. Vengeful spirits known as Hollows roam the world in search of devouring souls, and Shinigami – soul reapers – work tirelessly to defeat them and guide normal ghosts into a place called Soul Society. Ichigo valiantly fights the Hollow that threatens his sisters, but on the verge of defeat a Shinigami named Rukia gives him her powers, turning him into a Shinigami himself. Ichigo must now adjust to his new life of both vanquishing and saving souls for the sake of Soul Society.
If you liked Bleach then I think you'd also like Claymore. In both series the main characters are striving to become more powerful and have enemies that they must defeat (Bleach: Arrancar/Hollows, Claymore: Youma). Now you must be thinking that's true for all action anime, and it probably is, but what makes these anime ideal recommendations for each other is the similarities in the character development in both series. Both Ichigo and Clare have a motive to become stronger: Ichigo to protect his loved ones, and Clare to avenge her deceased surrogate mother. Both are great series and if you're looking for anime with both supernatural and action tones than I'd advise you to look no farther.
Both series have a similar climate. They each have unnatural main characters with the same desire: to become stronger. In both Claymore and Bleach there are evil monsters to fight and sword fighting, and also such values as love, sacrifice and the desire to protect one's friends or avenge loved ones. I think watching Claymore after Bleach is a very good choice, and vice versa.
Both are high-octane supernatural action anime with fantasy and horror elements (Bleach also has a comedic dimension that Claymore does not). They both have heroes with big swords that struggle, very literally, with personal demons as they fight to save the world.
Bleach and Claymore have many similarities. They both have a great amount of blood and gore (which is always good in an action series), sword fights against demonic creatures, and similar characters. The characters follow a code that they must stand by, and fight for what they believe in (unlike the rest of their squad or organization). Bleach is another long series and therefore if you do not wish to start a long series, I would not recommend it. However, once started, it is very entrancing and you might actually finish it.
In both Claymore and Bleach, the main characters have lost a close friend or family member to a monster-like creature, use a sword, and need to kill these monsters.
Claymore and Bleach aren't very alike; Bleach is filled with action and comedy and is more of a 'light' anime, while Claymore is very dark and serious. However, both anime have main characters who fight some sort of demons and they both use swords. Though in Bleach the characters use special powers and in Claymore they just fight with swords. I think you'll like one if you liked the other.
Bleach and Claymore have a similar sense of action. Both have exciting fight scenes and dramatic plotlines, with a focus on main characters that become more powerful as the series progresses.
Claymore and Bleach have very similar plots, but they take place in a diferent ambiance. Both feature a main character that, in order to be able to fight and defend earth from monsters, takes the risk to turn into a monster too, in case he/she looses control of her power and lets it take over their body. In both caes also, the characters will meet companions that will help them bear the influence of the monster in them better and overcome the hardest aspects of their fights.Bleach is much longer and detailed then Claymore though, seeming more complete where claymore may have gaps in the plot that are not cleared up at the end.
Claymore and Bleach share many things in common, both of them feature bloody, violent scenes with intense and captivating fighting scenes, sword fights more exactly, both animes have a dark side, mood, atmosphere which is pretty predominant especialy in Claymore which is quite serious while Bleach also features comedy elements. The main protagonists of this shows possesses superpowers that they did not receive from their own will. Both of them are quite dramatic so if you liked one of this shows then be sure to check the other one as well.
Hope you like your fights, as both are chock full of them. They can give the action junky their fix with either stoic professionalism or style and flourish with magical powers to spice it up (Claymore and Bleach respectively). While Claymore substitutes abilities instead of powers, it still gives it enough to prevent it from being simply swords against monsters. Bleach is far from: if the character has a name and can fight, chances are they have some fancy powers to spice up the fight. And the blood; plenty in each then serious fights are going down.
And when they aren't fighting? It gets a whole lot slower but where Bleach has a good amout of comedy, Claymore is anything but. The latter is heavy on drama and action while the former, although has it's own share of drama, dabbles more in the funny.
Otherwise, plot-wise, there are organizations in both that cater to destroy monsters and where the mosters in turn feast on humans who are defenseless against them. The organizations fight to protect them and in Claymore's case, at a cost.
If you're looking for some good fights with style and good vs evil that has shades of grey, both will satisfy that hunger. Bleach will tickle your funny bone at times while Claymore will slake your thirst for something more serious. Either way, you can't go wrong with either one if you're in the mood for some action.
Bleach and Claymore are both very good anime, and they both involve getting stronger and defeating more powerful enemies. While claymore is more gruesome in its fighting style, bleach can still get pretty bloody. all in all, if you liked one you would probably like the other
Once upon a time, two brothers passed the happy days of their childhood by studying alchemy, which is governed by the equal transfer principle: an eye for an eye -- you can't get more than you give. But these brothers tried to defy that law, and a horrific accident resulted. Now, the older brother, Edward, is called the Full Metal Alchemist because of his metal limbs, and the younger, Alphonse, is a soul without a body, trapped within the confines of an automaton. Together they search for the power to restore themselves, to find the lives they lost so long ago...
Claymore and FMA both take place in a fantasy world (Claymore's world is medieval while FMA takes place in a steampunk setting).They also are both traveling/adventuring anime. Both have a fair amount of action and violence, too. Furthermore, both in Claymore and FMA the heroes are members of a group of a select individuals who have powers beyond those of an average ordinary human. But the main reason for this recommendation is the fact that for me, these anime are highly addictive... so I think if you like Claymore you will like FMA and vice versa .
I think you'll enjoy Claymore if you enjoyed Fullmetal Alchemist (and vice versa) because they both have enticing action backed up by intricate storylines. The settings and atmospheres are about the same as well. Also, there's blood, horror, adventure, and much depth in the characters. You'll definitely like one anime if you enjoyed the other; Fullmetal Alchemist has excellent opening and ending songs, Claymore has beautiful art and animation.
Claymore and FMA are both dark and serious and are about characters who fight demons. In Fullmetal Alchemist they use alchemy (some kind of magic) and in Claymore they fight with claymores (huge swords).
Both animes have strong main characters and excellent plot, when you see one episode you need see more and more. Both have a lot of action, in Full Metal there are Magical skills and Claymore has sword skills and demoniac power. But all characters fight for the same reason, people that they lost in the past and revenge.
Both series are about protagonists who lost something dear to them in their past, and as a result, sacrificed their body to somehow regain them. However, doing so causes them to question if they are truly human anymore, and if so, can they hope to hold onto it or will they lose it forever?
Both have characters that kick ass and have great stories to go along with them. Full of action and adventure at every corner both of these shows do not dissapoint. Even though both take place in very different worlds they feel the same because the animation is very similar and beautiful. If you liked one check out the other.
Each series have a lot of fighting and some gore while maintaining a strong story. Beyond that, the main characters in each have something done to their bodies, making it possible to question their humanity, which often gets them segregated. Finally, each series has the main characters fighting against a strong organization for what they think is right, all the while piecing together an even larger mystery that is happening.
In Claymore and Fullmetal Alchemist, you can't become the most powerful warrior without paying a serious price. At first glance, both alchemists and claymores look like normal people with the strength to help others, but beneath the surface lie the difficult choices that will determine how strong you'll become... and how human you'll remain.
Both of these anime involve a protagonist that defies even their own anime's logic laws. The supernatural, intriguing plot devices, and some powerful individuals await the protagonist in each story. Plus, both protagonists belong to an organization meant to keep the peace, but which holds some interesting secrets. If intrigue, drama, and plenty of action are your thing, check these two out.
In the distant future, the world lies in ruin and vampires rule the land. Mercenary vampire hunters fight the terrible forces of darkness - for a price; the most notorious of them all being the half-vampire named D. However, despite his actions that help humanity, he finds himself shunned by those he would save. When a girl named Charlotte is kidnapped by the vampire Lord Meier, her father hires D to bring her back - dead or alive. Competing with the vampire hunting Marcus Brothers for the prize, D encounters Meier first; but in the middle of their confrontation, Charlotte calls out Meier's name in worry and Meier reveals that she is accompanying him of her own free will...
In a world where herooes are half good and half bad, it is hard for people to trust them with their lives and not run away in terror. If you liked the blood, gore and guts of Claymore and you want to see more of the emotional side in people trusting a hybrid hero, then Vampire Hunter D: Bloodlust would be the vampire kiss for you.
The protagonists in both these anime are half vampire-half human and spend their days hunting demons for a living. Both anime successfully turn the simple concept of demon-slaying into an intriguing plot and couple that with stylish animation. The pace in these anime also feels similar, with both having gorgeous fighting sequences. Claymore is gorier than VHD and Clare is treated with more depth as a character than D (but she's got an entire series to be developed whilst D only has a movie), but the enjoyment levels are still the same.
If you liked the inner conflict between the yoma and human self of the claymores, you may also like Vampire Hunter D: Bloodlust. D, the main hero, is half-human/half-vampire and struggles against his kind (vampires) to save humans and retain his humanity; this is just like Clare (the main character of Claymore) who exterminates yoma and tries to remain her own humanity. Apart from that both D and Clare are feared by the people they help due to their ''evil'' half but are helped by a human who understands their hidden kindness and their fight to control their demon sides.
Both Claymore and VHD:B follow a sole protagonist who is a part of what they hunt - a demon. Therefore their personal journeys also those of self-discovery and relationships are scarce yet essential to character development. Both are investigative, action-packed, bloody, well-choreographed during action sequences and manage to maintain that original manga feel from which they were both created. These are must sees for fans of the supernatural and gapingly-stunning action sequences.
Vampire Hunter D: Bloodlust and Claymore both have main characters that are half vampire half human which spend their days hunting demons for a living. Both series have comparable fighting scenes and emotional values of the main characters. There is a struggle for the main characters to control their emotions and keep them in check, which in turns makes them feared by the people around them.
Both protagonists are partly humans, partly the things they are fighting with. Despite being partly vampire/yoma, they often show much mercy than ordinary human beings, but are ignored by most humans and are mistrusted. It is not easy for them to fight with their monster side, but eventually they meet people who help them to deal with sufferings and pain that other people's cruel eyes can't see.If you are interested in some partly supernatural characters which are cool in their own way and are to some extent better than humans, you will enjoy both of the animes. Also, there are scenes with violence, blood and so on in both of them.
Both anime feature a hybrid hero who hunts monsters of their own kind in a dark fantasy setting. Both series' heroes may seem distant and cold, but both have a human side that the people of their world don't bother to understand. If you enjoy watching a hero struggle to maintain their humanity in the midst of blood-splattering action, try both anime!
In both, Vampire Hunter D: Bloodlust and Claymore the main characters are half breeds: D and Clare. D being half vampire half human, and Clare being half yoma and half human. Both these main characters are out too rid the world of their evil half. Both are in some sort of occupation to kill these evil halved creatures. A secret, nameless society has made these claymores and together work to take down the yoma. Well in Vampire Hunter D: Bloodlust there is a group of mercenary vampire hunters that also work together to take down the vampires. The main characters are also followed by a character in the story, in Vampire Hunter D: Bloodlust the character is Leila and Claymore it is Raki. These characters both seem to get in the way and risk the lives of the main characters, but they also help the main characters regain their humanity.
Although both shows are very similar, Claymore too me was a lot better and deserves a better rating than Vampire Hunter D: Bloodlust. That being said I also believe that Claymore was a lot more risky then Vampire Hunter D: Bloodlust due to it being a lot more unrealistic, but this unrealism worked out in the end. I am not saying that Vampire Hunter D: Bloodlust is realistic though I am simply comparing the two shows and thinking that Claymore has got a more of a unique story while Vampire Hunter D: Bloodlust was just a little too basic. But I would assume that Claymore was inspired by Vampire Hunter D. However, if you enjoyed one of these shows I believe that you will like the other because they are very similar.
A giant wall looms over Tokyo, shielding the city from a dangerous otherworld called the 'Hell's Gate'. Within the city, things are no less terrifying because Contractors, psychopathic killers with phenomenal powers, have started to appear. These killers are compelled to pay a price every time they use their powers, often in the form of a meaningless or painful task. As their deadly habits rack up a gruesome death toll, Kirihara Misaki and her team from the Foreign Affairs Public Security struggle to solve the cases and bring the Contractors under control. Their task is further confounded by the interference of a masked individual they title Messier Code BK201, a man with abilities that allow him to fight and defeat the Contractors. Who is this BK201? How can the Contractors be stopped permanently? And what does the appearance of the Hell's Gate mean for the people of Tokyo?
At a quick glance, Claymore and Darker than Black do not look similar. The plots differ intensely, but they both share that common theme of underground organizations controlling stronger beings who are meant to simply do what they are told, with no questions asked.
These anime both have serious storylines with a fight to the end feeling to them. There are themes of alienation from society for being "different" in both, but acceptance within ones own groups and those who love them. Boht have great action with interesting fight scenes as well.
Both shows take place in worlds that seem to be completely and utterly doomed. Both main characters lost part of their humanity to gain their powers, and spend most of the series trying to get that back. Both also have rather exellent action sequences. If you enjoyed one I can\'t imagine you not enjoying the other.
Both are different, Claymore is much bloodier, female cast, and is in a medieval kind of setting
Darker than Black is neo-noir sci-fi kind of action anime with little gore.
Yet somehow they are both have a similar kind of feeling. Both leads are working behind an omnious organisation (working under a handler) and striving to seek things that relates to their past. Both leads have something unique about them and appear/act more 'human' than humans despite them not being strictly human
Both Darker Than Black and Claymore are about fighters who are being outcasted from normal humans, fighting at the command of an organization. Both shows have great action, and the leading characters in both shows dislike the organization they work for, but keep working for them in order to keep their trust.
Both of these series are centered around groups of people being told what to do, no questions asked, by a large and mysterious organization. The people being told what to do, for the most part, are people with super-human powers, that were thought to have give up humanity, by the larger public, and are feared. Finally, as the series each progress, it is shown that the super-humans (Contractors in Darker Than Black, and Claymore) are closer to human than originally seen. Finally, both of the series are extremely action heavy.
Both anime feature rather blank-faced protagonists that work for large organizations with unclear motives. Both protagonists are set apart from society, and in some respects, from their own kind because their skills are so different. Both anime also feature some drama involving the darker secrets of the protagonist's kind, world-destruction level evil, and what it is to be human.
Both animes have main characters who are mysterious, non-emotional and must follow orders from a secret organization
