Claymore: The Monster Of Memory

[Spoiler Alert]

I’ve noticed a running theme in a lot of anime. There’s always a distinctive focus on ones’ reasons for fighting. There’s always an episode or two in most action anime in which the characters look back and contemplate why they’re there and why they must fight, usually before a climactic battle or sometimes even in the middle of one. There’s usually very little variation in this formula, but having watched the anime Claymore recently, I was pleased to see that it really does do something different with it.
