I got interested in a manga called Claymore through a friend. At that time he introduce me to the TV series. I liked the series so much that I decided to read the actual manga, I can actually say, this is one of, if not the best manga I have read EVER!
The basic synopsis of the Claymore is that they are female warriors (half monster and half human) created by an organization to battle with other monsters called, Yomas. They continuously battle and kill off these Yomas until eventually near the end of their life they would request a comrade to end their life or risk transforming into monsters themselves to be killed by other Claymore. Its a dark fantasy manga.
The storyline is riveting and intense and the drawings are beautiful. The story starts off a bit slow, but it takes you away soon and gets your addicted. Each chapter comes out each month. The manga begin in 2001 and still going strong. Currently, its in its 123 chapter.
