I haven't read any of this author's work, but after reading his upbringing, his work must be interesting! Being a jerk as a child, I guess he did eventually become a productive member of society when he became a child counselor and then with his teen fiction novels. It's nice how honest the author is about his upbringing. I nice read.
I saw the first 5 episodes of the anime before checking out this manga. The anime is gorgeous, so I was a little surprised by how awkward the art in the manga is by comparison. I'm used to the dynamic fight scenes of Naruto and Bleach, where the art is such that you can see explosive movement in all the stills. Even though Claymore has tons of fighting, there's something about the way the stances are drawn that doesn't really convey power. Still, this is one of the few mangas I've seen where the central warrior is a female. It was really refreshing. Claire is serious and complex--no annoying fanservice even though she's gorgeous. And even though the youma-hunting theme isn't all that original, it does develop into some good stuff in a few volumes. It's an unremarkable beginning, but overall this is a really good manga.
