Ga-Rei Zero 12

Ga-Rei Zero


The sad thing about prequels is that we already know what’s going to happen and we can’t do shit about it. God I hate that bloody shota.

The end of the episode also jumps 2 years later, just to tease us, and we get to see Fujiko, the new supervisor as well as Ga-Rei’s hero, Kensuke Nimura finally. Recycled Kazuki’s seiyuu for him, hurr hurr. Also shat bricks to find out that Kiri and Jinguji didn’t die. Thought they were dead for sure. Kiri even has amnesia to accompany her survival!

Ga-Rei Zero

Wonder if this will lead to a Ga-Rei anime?

    I wonder, if they actually were to make an anime of Ga-Rei, if that would turn out as good as this one? I would be gladly watching a Ga-Rei anime in any case^^

    I liked Ga-Rei Zero very much, and I think I’d count it to one of the best animes from this season, together with ef and… Toradora, maybe?

    In this last ep, an insert song “Reincarnation -Last harmony-” sung by yozuca* was played in during Yomi’s and Kagura’s fight. And the Insert Song Collection Album will come out on December 25th. I am so looking forward to it (for the last two weeks already^^).

    YES. They did include Kensuke at the end! Never been so happy to read spoilers. Jinguuji and Kiri surviving is a nice bonus aswell.

    Can’t wait to watch this.

    There was a Kannazuki no Miko moment it that last ep. I simply luuurved it. :) Great show. Particular love how they crafted the plot and interwined it so tightly with the character development. I’ve seen such a coherent story for ages.

    I’m not so much looking forward to “Ga-Rei” though I doubt it can surpass its senpai.

    The kudakitsune dude semed more reserved in Zero, as compared to the manga, who’s more of a joker.

    Personally, I’d rather there not be a Ga Rei anime, coz I found that Ga Rei in itself is a rather typical action series. Zero, on the other hand, had more depth to it. But heck I think i’ll just watch it if the DO make a Ga Rei anime. XD

    So, this ep ends the prequel and now we´re treated to what Ga-Rei Zero is really about? Or does “Zero” end and Ga-Rei enters?

    While I´ve enjoyed the show so far I must say that I hate this kind of show where you start with one or two eps, then throw everything back to where it all began, run trough this whole flashback and then we´re back at where the show started? WTF man give me the usual order!!

    But oh well. I´ll wait for the subs on these two last eps.

    yeah, I feel your frustration. It was kinda disappointing for the bridge between ep 1 and ep2 to end up as pointless cliffhanger. Still, I’m harboring some (false) hope that the crew in ep1 are not totally dead… i don’t know maybe get revived by the stone in the later part of the manga or something. However, I do enjoy the flashback manner; it’s just the killing off of the apparent protagonists in ep1 that irks me.

    Mother died > Surrogate Sister > Yuri > Exorcist Training > Sesshouseki > Bad End

    WOW! I loved the series, storyline, animation, EVERYTHING! Even though it was confusing in the beginning, it was SO GOOD TO WATCH!!! After watching about Kagura and Yomi, I started reading the manga. I do HOPE they make a second season, but now about the storyline… It’d be SO SO SO cool… But yeah… LOVED THE ANIME… SO COOL!!!! ^_^

    and now when I´ve watched the whole thing I go WTF just happened?

    I hate this kind of ending, trust me on this I really do. If they don´t continue this then they just fail so hard it can´t be described in words. You don´t end a show like this, you just don´t.

    I don´t really care if there is a manga that follows up on things. I just don´t in this case.

    But oh well. All parts in animation, music, hot yuri sex and murder gets thumbs up for great quality. Way of showing and ending gets a big fat fail.

    After the confirmation of a Macross F movie, it seems quite likely to me that they’ll adapt the regular series into an anime. (We still have to off that asshole shota, and let Kagura avenge her sister, after all.) It may not be quite as interesting as Zero, but…given what we saw here, I have a feeling the writers could make a Ga-Rei anime even better than the manga. Overall, this show was an excellent surprise for me this season. I’d say it was one of the better series of 2008.

    PS and spoiler: Someone said this was Minoru Shiraishi’s first serious/dramatic role. I’d wager this is also the first time his character dies, then?
