I'm reading the Claymore manga and I'm really liking it. What does /a/ think of the anime?
/a/'s official stance is it's good up until they deviate from the manga. Which is the last 6 eps or something.
Oh you mean the 20 episode anime? Yeah it's alright.
I like how raki cries like a little bitch in every episode he appears in.
The anime is alright, it's nothing special. The sudden non-cannon ending completely kills it.
Pretty much agree with the consensus here, but keep reading the manga. It's awesome.
I really don't see the need to blame the studio for doing what they did, are you suggesting they do the unresolved ending from the manga and then end the series with a message saying 'Hey viewers, if you want to see what happens next go read the mangoo since we don't have enough material for a second season lol' ? That would've been suicidal.
The animes okay, it was fun seeing everybody in animated form, but some of the action scenes were pretty static. Not to mention the whole DBZ 'I must power up to defeat my opponent' thing going on.

Why are you talking about Shigurui?
The ending sucked horribly...
The anime wasn't that bad but shi...
the ending killed it
a claymore is half human, half yoma.
THERE IS NO CLAYMORE ANIME.
Half-human, half-youma you say?
The first 2/3rds were ok.
The ending was terrible. Not worth watching at all.
Stick to the manga.
VA for Raki = oh god my ears i hope his char dies fast.
only episodes I liked were the ones he managed to not be in.
But he at least needs to watch through episode 8. Lots of great animation imo.
The anime was weird, it only aired for 21, maybe 22, episodes, as opposed to 26, like most two-season animes.
Besides that oddity, it was pretty good.
If the anime wanted to deviate, they could've done it better by at least having Priscilla get killed of for the sake of finality. And even better, have Raki bite the bullet for Jean.
Raki killed the anime. Never read the manga, so I don't know how he's like in the manga, but for anime version, Raki killed it. Everytime that bitch graced the screen in any form, the show went from awesome to shit in less than a second.
He's much less prominent in the manga. In fact, he's been missing (in real life, and in the storyline) for several years.
a claymore is half yoma. so the other half is human. half human, half yoma.
It's fine. see >>10050938
It's not too bad even with the shitty ending.
Does anyone know where i can find an english version of the anime?
lemonparty.org, lots of recent stuff dubbed.
My only gripe with the anime was that mai waifu didn't get enough screen time.
