This alternate world is plagued with ‘Yoma’, demonic predators that feed on humans. These beasts can blend into society by taking on a human appearance, and walk amongst people without them knowing. As a counter force, a mysterious organization arose, which created a blend of half human and Yoma warriors known as “Silver Eyed Witches” or “Claymores”, namely after the huge claymore type swords they carry. These protectors are often ostracized, hated or even ridiculed by humanity mainly because they fear them, the unknown.
Raki, a boy who has lost everything in a Yoma attack, befriends a Claymore, Clare. Throughout the series, the two show their deeper qualities, powers and Clare’s never ending devotion to the goal she swore as a child.
