HASH(0xa1efc738) out of 5 stars Very engaging Origin tale. Nov. 5 2007
By Robert J. Cook - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Claymore is my first real dig into the Manga genre, but don't be mistaken, I have more than a few Anime and more movies than I can count under my belt, so just hear me out. To start, Claymore really should be read from volume 1 forward, as Norihiro Yagi(the writer)has a tendency to pull Alias/24-esque cliffhangers to conclude the volumes. Having said that, Volume 4 continues were volume 3 left off, following Teresa and a very young Claire in their journey through the towns, Teresa trying to find Claire a good town to stay as she continues as a Claymore. Their travels take them to a town surrounded by mountains, were Teresa disposes of the Yoma in the town quite easily, her "Skill" as a Claymore is to destroy without really needing her Yoma Power; Just anticipating movements and reacting to them. Teresa decides that the town is peaceful and Claire would be safe to stay there as she goes on with her life and after an emotional Claire begs her to let her come with her, Teresa insists it is better there and leaves her there. When she reaches the outskirts of town, Teresa senses trouble, and then knows there is, as the bandits that challenged her in Volume 3 trot past her, rushing headlong into the now threat-free town. It is then that Teresa must decide her save Clare and break the only rule that matters to a "Claymore": Never kill a human, or allow the only person that has ever understood her die. The results are quite impressive, and the aftermath is just as intreging. I really love this series as a whole, and when I first read this volume(and volume 3)I wasn't sure where they were taking me, but seeing the full picture, it makes perfect sense and really shows the motivation for Clare and her real purpose as a Claymore. Teresa is also a wonderful character arch, from heartless killer into the grace that she ends as, it truly draws you in and keeps you engaged. The end of the volume doesn't leave you really fiending the next volume, but the next volume IS a real head turner and brings everything full circle and to the present. As a first time Manga reader, I can say without a doubt I picked the right series to start on, it's engaging with good story and characters you care about, AND the action is both twisted and vicious and epic in proportion. If you're a seasoned vet, you already love it, if you're fresh like me, it's the perfect start. Buy volume 1 and get to reading!!!!

HASH(0xa1594b7c) out of 5 stars Continuation of the Teresa Arc Nov. 20 2011

Format: Paperback
Claymore, Vol. 4 / 9781421506210

I've actually watched the complete Claymore anime first before getting into the manga; I'm really liking the manga source material, as it rather closely follows the anime but has a few extra details and world-building information along the way. I definitely love the clean, crisp black-and-white artwork, though I do still have to remember the right-to-left / back-to-front reading.

Volume 4 provides the following scenes:

Scene 16: Teresa of the Faint Smile, Part 5
Scene 17: Teresa of the Faint Smile, Part 6
Scene 18: Marked for Death, Part 1
Scene 19: Marked for Death, Part 2
Scene 20: Marked for Death, Part 3
Scene 21: Marked for Death, Part 4

For those following along with the anime series, this volume corresponds to:

Episode 6: Teresa and Clare (An adaptation of Scene 16 and Scene 17 and carried over from Volume 3.)
Episode 7: Marked for Death (An adaptation of Scene 18, Scene 19, Scene 20, and Scene 21.)

This volume covers the Teresa arc as she leaves the Organization in order to live a life protecting Clare, and introduces Priscilla as the hunt for Teresa begins.

The only thing I don't like about this volume is that I preferred the more angular facial artwork for Teresa that was on display in the anime. If you liked the anime series, though, I am certain you'll like this manga volume; I recommend it for extra detailing and world building.

HASH(0xa209d720) out of 5 stars I loved it Dec 21 2015

Format: Kindle Edition
Claymore is a manga about Yoma who pretend to be human in order to kill and eat the humans. The Claymore are the hybrid of the two stronger faster but still human with the ability to slay the Yoma which they do for a price. They travel from village to village slaying Yoma with nothing but the sword on their back using the Yoma abilities but slowly turning into a monster that they hunt. When the time comes a Claymore will send a black card to another claymore to be slain before the Yoma takes over and so they die as a human.

In the fourth installment Teresa has taken in Clare as her charge at least till she finds a safe new home for her. However when an incident with the bandits turns ugly it forces her to break the rules. Teresa slays a human forcing the hand of the claymores to come after her for breaking the rules. When the other claymores show up she has decided that she won’t be like them anymore, but that she wants to live for Clare. Forced to fight her peers Teresa isn’t just fighting for herself anymore but for Clare. Will she survive the attack.

I like Clare she’s a sword carrying slayer who isn’t afraid to die charging in risking her life. She may not survive every encounter but that doesn’t stop her from doing what has to be done protecting the humans. While most Claymore’s wouldn’t allow Raki to tag along she accepts him and maybe it’s partly because they are kindred but he needs her and she him to keep her humanity. I find Clare to be an intriguing character and can’t wait to see more about her back story as well as what’s going to happen next. We are given a little back story on Clare which introduces us to Teresa a Claymore whose life was changed by Clare.

I’ve seen all of the episodes on Netflix a few years ago actually binge watched them over a long weekend. I love the concept for the Claymore the hybrids created using parts from the monsters that they have been created to fight. While I am familiar with the story it’s interesting to see it play out as I read it. The art is great it gives me just enough to create the story in my head as I read each detailed page. This is only my 2nd manga so I don’t have a lot to go on but so far I’m super exited to read the series. Claymore is a fast paced loaded with action series that is captivating right from the start hard to put down till the last page. Can’t wait to start the next one in the series they just keep getting better. I feel like a voracious Reader because I can’t get enough.
HASH(0xa17ec978) out of 5 stars Well done continuation of this dark fantasy manga series April 27 2014
By Karissa Eckert - Published on
Format: Paperback
This is the 4th volume in the Claymore series and was another excellent installment in this series. This series continues to be a very well done dark fantasy series, full of excellent characters and stunning action scenes.

Teresa did the unthinkable in protecting Clare, she killed humans. Now Teresa has to deal with the aftermath of that. There is a bounty on her head and other Claymores are tasked with killing the rogue Teresa once and for all. Teresa continually tries to convince Clare to stay in towns along the way, but Clare insists on following Teresa.

Now we are following Clare’s story before she became a Claymore and it is fascinating to read about her background. We watch Clare and Teresa interact a lot. Both of them have changed some; Teresa is starting to feel human emotion and Clare is starting to have more of a sense of self worth.

We meet quite a few new Claymore as well and learn about how they are ranked by ability. There are some absolutely spectacular fight scenes between the Claymore too.

The whole series continues to be well drawn with excellent action scenes, wonderful characters, and a fascinating story.

Overall this was a wonderful continuation to this story. I am excited to see what happens next. I would definitely recommend this whole manga series to anyone who loves action-packed dark fantasy manga.
HASH(0xa186be4c) out of 5 stars The one absolute rule... Aug. 25 2013
By para - Published on
Format: Paperback
Not only does volume 4 build off of the previous volumes, but it opens with the direct continuation of a story started in volume 3. This is not the place to start reading.

We open with the end of the Teresa of the Faint Smile story, with Teresa dealing with the changes in herself her new traveling companion is causing. This tale ends strongly, and events hear will clearly have great effect and influence on things going forward.

The remainder of the volume contains the first four parts of the seven part Marked for Death story. Here we see both the consequences of a Claymore breaking the one absolute rule of their organization and the introduction of a young new recruit with staggering potential. The hunt for the renegade Claymore and ensuing battle are very well done and full of both action and compelling character moments.

The art continues to be a perfect compliment to the story (although very unique and non-standard in style) and is clear and easy to follow even when the action gets hectic. There are some incredible, dramatic double page spreads in this issue and the next. Yagi's visual pacing is great.

I love the focus on Teresa and the story threads that follow. Things are progressing well and Yagi's presenting his stories with carefully increasing levels of danger, intrigue and information. Highly recommended.
