After a routine raid, the rookie sky pirate Coud finds a most unusual cargo in his mates' cargo hold: Ren, an "Edel Reid", a race prized by humans for granting special combat power to their partners through "Reacting". He quickly discovers, however, that Ren is even more prized than he expected. The pirate ship is visited by three members of the Edel Reid Complete Protection Agency "Arc Aire", who try to purchase her. When Coud refuses, the ship is suddenly attacked by a mysterious force, and Coud's captain charges him with Ren's protection.

I was surprised after watching this one as I expected it to be your average adventure anime with the same old story, characters that get forgotten and bad flow in story. I am glad I was wrong, this was a great viewing. The story is a rather simple one but flows very well throughout the anime having some interesting action and emotional moments. Fights aren’t too alike to each other and the emotional moments aren’t the same each time because they are sometimes sad, sometimes cute. The plot also has its interesting moments, with a few awkward ones too but theres nothing overall disappointing about read more

Elemental Gelade (also known as Erementar Gerad) is an anime about Coud Van Guiret and his journey from being a simple apprentice sky pirate one who is responsible for the outcome of the entire world. In this world, Edel Raids are special people that react to humans to give humans tremendous powers for fighting and other means. Of course, there are people who want to use these Edel Raids for an evil purpose, and then there are those who want to unlock the deeper, more mysterious power, of these Edel Raids.

Without going too much into the story, you can already imagine, or simply read more

Story-7/10-Well.. I guess.. the girl turning into a weapon.. is not the most original idea.. (Saikano) but atleast its the girl AND the guy fighting together.. Story is pretty good i guess.. in the end of most episodes.. you feel like they accomplished something.. while they are building up character most of the time.. But you really (its so obvious) see the relationship between Ren and Coud grow.. Coud stops being a jerk really quickly..and that was pretty cool.. unlike other series.. where it takes like 20 episodes.. The ending really sucked, if it was the first time you have watched read more

Elemental Gelade is an OK series to watch. At first it may look like a kiddie show [which I think it is], but it actually get's a little better and more entertaining so it might be something those of us over 13 might enjoy....just keep in mind it's really simple.

Very bright colors with simple lines and shading, typical of shounen series directed towards a younger audience. There are some pretty good landscape shots...and the floating rocks are nice. The “Reaction” scenes are reused and repeated....frequently.

Nothing especially thrilling about the OP or ED, I dislike techno very much—so read more

Anime: Soul Eater
Both of these animes are pretty similar, they have partners that change into weapons. Also it seems that the weapons and person controlling the weapon seems to develop a love interest with each other.

Anime: Eureka Seven
this show takes place in the sky and land, but Eureka Seven took place on land first then took it into the sky and Elemental Gelade is the other way around. They both have that romance between man and something/woman.

Anime: Guilty Crown
both of them are talking about the weapons that take form of the humans
