In times of olde, humans live in constant fear of demons known as yoma. These vicious creatures can takethe appearance and memories of humans they have devoured, thus blending into society as they freely feast on human flesh
The key to stopping the yoma lies with the tolerated yet feared Claymores -- women who are half-demon, half-human, and fully fated to become the demons that they hunt. Meanwhile, in a village, the young Raki has been banished; his only crime was losing his family to the yoma. Raki is drawn to a Claymore named Clare, and together their journey begins. While Clare fights the yoma plaguing the land, can Raki help her in her struggle to retain her humanity?
