~Note~
- This will be my first anime review.
- Might contain spoilers.

Ga-Rei: Zero, is one of those anime that blew my expectations away; truly an anime I wished I discovered sooner. This anime is so underrated, I hope this review does some good.

"Will you kill someone you love, because of love?"

That quote was what got me interested, and I watched to find the answer.

-Story: Basically two girls, Yomi and Kagura, that has experienced deaths of loved ones by demons. They both belong to families that are destined to be exorcists. They do their best to live up to their family names. One day they read more

*Powerful opening episode plus a strong ending makes Ga-Rei Zero a definite must see for action fans.*

“Will you kill someone you love because of love?”

Those who have already seen Ga-Rei Zero (GRZ) are probably sick of reading the quote above, but it is nonetheless an effective quote to advertise for GRZ. I still remember what initially caught my interest in GRZ, it was the amazing trailer. Boy, how misleading it was …

Don’t get me wrong, Ga-Rei Zero is quite fabulous indeed. The synopsis may sound generic, but the technique used to present the story that will eventually lead into Ga-Rei (manga) is what makes read more

Recommendations

One girl snap at her best friend for absolutely no good reason. Then they fight. Relationship-wise, both can be implied as shoujo-ai.
I heard all the times that maiden heart work in mysterious ways. Positively looking this two shows just portray it to the extreme.

Ga-rei zero do include why the fight is unavoidable in an interesting non-chronological fashion. BRS however is written in the way that assume audience know everything, making the show sort of a fan fare.
Just by watching the very first episode of Elfen Lied and Ga - Rei - Zero you will see why I said these seem similar. The graphic violence, female leads, ecchi scenes, supernatural powers, and special force teams. They share the same feel and seem to have good twists. Elfen Lied was a masterpiece so I expect a lot from this one.

Opening Theme

"Paradise Lost" by Minori Chihara (eps 4-11)

#1: "Yume no Ashioto ga Kikoeru (夢の足音が聞こえる)" by Kaoru Mizuhara (eps 2, 4-11)
