Continue where Claymore anime stooped.
Do completely new Claymore OVA.
The idea came to me after seeing "Hellsing", it's a good example what might happen to Claymore when it comes to anime adaption.
First "Hellsing" anime was released when the manga was not yet finished ( like Claymore ) and while the "Claymore" anime followed manga "Hellsing" anime was very different from the manga by the time it was finished, overall more than half of episodes didn't match the story line of the manga. Than, years after manga was finally finished the project "Hellsing Ultimate OVA" was started, 10 episode OVA based on "Hellsing" witch follows the story to the core now that the main story is finished. And they did it pretty damn well.
So I was wondering, can same thing happened to Claymore after Yagi finally finished the story? To me it would be better to do the whole story from the beginning when the manga ends one day than to think some new excuse to continue where the episode 26 of the anime stooped.
So what are your opinions on this?
I think they should do a claymore OVA that follows the end of the Anime. But they could also redo it a make one that follows the manga. Like they did with Fullmetal Alchemist and Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood. One followed the manga and the other one was it's own story. The were both great stories but had many similarities and differences. So if they did both I think it would be great. They could even use some of the same voice actors ("some" as in different voice for Raki and make him not so whiny).

I wouldnt mind seeing OVA's of Claymore. It would be awesome. I think they should make them start from where the Anime drifted off. So that it would start where Rigaldo apeared and all of the Awakeed stayed instead of leaving. ^^
They already made a Claymore OVA, it's episodes 25 and 26
I would love to see an OVA, maybe as starting point for season 2...But it's probably not going to happen
an OVA or a second season for that matter is up to how popular and in demand it is in Japan...if they want it there it will happen....and when claymore is all done then i think they might do what FMA did and make a different series. or they can just start season 2 at Rigaldos attack and just fix the other mess ups with flashbacks
We can always kidnap an animation studio and force them to do it using the feather torture
What this manga needs is a new anime. I think it would be good for everyone and would revitalize this great title and possibly motivate Yagi to think a bit more about his creation. Because now it looks like he's bored with it himself. But either OVA's would be needed or a complete remake.
I'd like to see a CM anime relaunch, but despite the popularity of the manga and the anime being way decent till the botched end, I understand the first anime series didn't fare too well in Nihon.

Yagi is bringing the manga to its end as well, lets not be delusional lol.
I guess a successful and popular manga doesn't always translate into a successful and popular anime. Claymore has a large fanbase, and a bit of licensed merchandise including a DS game and an artbook, but people still didn't watch a faithful anime adaptation.
We need OVA done like Fate/Zero or Helsing Ultimate - lot and lot of good animation.
But I suppose that they are waiting for Manga to end before they start making one.
