------------
In a world rife with deadly creatures called "youma", a young silver eyed woman, Clare, works on behalf of an organisation that trains female youma halfbreeds into warriors with the ability to destroy these creatures. Considered a rogue for picking up a stray child & almost losing herself to her youma side by "Awakening", she is constantly assigned rather dangerous missions...

------------
This is your basic hack'n'slash anime. Or rather blood'n'guts.
You can also think Dragonballz with chicks and swords, er, claymores.

Has a cute chick in the lead that aquires an annoying wimp as a sidekick. Mostly they battle your monster of the week ('they' being Claire and other claymore chicks, not the useless wimp), but they pick up a storyline somewhere in the middle.

Not recommended for children due to violence, dismemberment and torture scenes (although US-residents should be fine).
There is no sex in there whatsoever by any sane standard (one monster has nipples, though) but we can always wait for the next hentai doujin, hur hur hur ...

I admit I enjoyed this anime despite everything. It doesn't have a story worth speaking of and barely any character development (apart from power-ups), but the action is nice even though they talk too much crap in the middle of the fights.
If you want intellectual stimulation then go away and watch Southpark or The Simpsons. This is anime. And I like it.

Enjoy!

Why was there no follow on bankruptcy then? The bailout of AIG FP went to (wow power leveling) hedge funds that bound credit swaps on Lehman failing or others betting on rating (wow power leveling) declines. AIG has drained over 100 billion from the government. Which had to go to (wow power leveling) those who bet on failures and downgrades. Many of whom (power leveling)were hedge funds. I-banks that had offsetting swaps needed the money from the AIG bailout or they would have been caught. Its an (wow powerleveling) insiders game and it takes just a little bit too much time for most people to think (wow gold) through where the AIG 100 billion bailout money went to, hedge funds and players, many of whom hire from the top ranks of DOJ, Fed, Treasury, CAOBO

It takes strength to be truthful when a lie would be more convenient D3 Gold, it takes strength to be polite to someone when that person has been rude to you Buy D3 Gold, it takes strength to persist in the face of obstacles, when it would be much easier to simply give up Cheap D3 Gold.
