Hey all, it’s Story time with Star!
I was about 10 years too late on this anime but back in 2011, I watched my first horror anime. I was an avid watcher comedy/ecchi/adventure anime as a preteen-teenager after having a childhood filled with Sailor Moon, Dragon ball and Pokémon so this was the first time I stepped out of my routine and faced my fear.
I was honestly worried for no reason.
Because Claymore wasn’t scary, it was invigorating. The concept of elite women wielding claymores immediately grabbed me.
- The women weren’t thin, they were Amazonian. It made sense for strong women to wield strong weapons.
- Each Claymore had a sense of honor and loyalty like a knight but with the freewheeling sensibility of a samurai.
- Art wise, it was traditionally horror. Gritty, dark, bloody. With bold lines and sharp edges. some shiny metal
Just watch it guys and see what I’m talking about.
