The Seven Ghosts


Background Information

Claymore is a manga and anime series by Norihiro Yagi. It is about female warriors called Claymores (named after the swords they wield) who are tasked to fight monsters known as Youma.

The plot is considered by many to be superior to the plots of much other contemporary manga (maybe in the past), including the Holy Shonen Trinity (not that hard to beat anyway). The first half of the manga is quite good, but it, unfortunately, becomes a bit of a clusterfuck in the second half, towards the end. The anime, on the other hand, in this author's opinion, had some of the best fights seen in animation since Dragon Ball. It also ended more or less at the point before the manga on which it was based started to become a clusterfuck.


Standing in the Battledome

Speed is emphasized in Claymore, and often scenes are drawn as to suggest extreme speed. As a series, its top tiers are in the massively hypersonic to sub-relativistic+, and the high tiers and top tiers can range from small town level to town level+ in terms of destructive capacity. Overall, the series is on the upper end of things in terms of speed but ultimately suffer due to mediocre DC and hax abilities.

The stronger Claymore characters can at least fight high tiers from Hunter x Hunter and mid tiers from One Piece.
