After finishing this great show (hopefully to continue) was anyone just blown away by the first episode when you thought (if you've never heard of Ga-Rei) that orange squad werer the main characters and that lead guy and girl there were like awesome parters and stuff then Yomi destroys them in 5 seconds and your like WTF just happened??? how is this gonna continue with the main characters dead??? They all look edpretty cool though, its too bad they got obliterated.


That's exactly what I had in mind when I finished the first ep. I figured we'd get some flashbacks about that orange squad and then work our way up to the climax point. But it seems I was off when it came to the characters.
too apparently :

Awesome ending. Must. Read. Manga. Now! (but i dont know if I'll like it without yomi.) Too shaken up to say anything more.

10/10 for the episode, 9/10 for the whole series. Now I have to re-rate my whole list...

Yomi ;__;.. best and most beautiful character in this show died just like that. I blame that bitch Mei and her father for everything.

Pretty meh series overall, 3/4 of it felt like a prequel to the prequel.

6/10, bumped up 4 points because of Yomi.

Anyhow, watching this series felt a lot like playing Crisis Core, you have that one character that you know will eventually go evil (AKA Yomi in Ga-Rei, and Sephiroth in CC), and you're waiting and expecting for that moment, while seeing how great they were before they went bad, rather queer feeling.

Blah. :|

Mediocre series for me. The first two episodes were shockers but after that, it turned into a schoolgirl-vs-schoolgirl (anyone else annoyed they never changed costumes??) w/ pet demons -type of series. Throw in some archetype Japanese old guys, a flowery umbrella swordswoman who hates that she doesn't get some ... sword, stereotypical pretty unmarried handicapped leaderwoman, and an unfortunate marriage arrangement for two +family issues, and that's the rest of it. It's tough out there for an exorcist.

I did enjoy Nabuu-tachi though. Great voice actor.

Quite a sad ending.... I liked Yomi a lot but Kagura isnt bad as well.

lol I wish there is season two. Damn good anime. I felt like crying at the end when Kagura killed Yomi. But I think it was a good but sad ending.

Originally an 8/10. Until this episode. 9/10. This series was FANTASTIC, everything built up for the ending! Absolutely flawless.

Eh, at 11 I was willing to give this a 10, but after ep 12 I downgraded my rating to 9. It appears we are in difference of opinion.

I HIGHLY doubt there will be a second season, but it'd be a sure watch on my list if there was. ^_^;

But oh wow, I cant believe Yomi is actually dead? Really, she doesnt deserve any of that...sigh I really pity her. I was really hoping that she didnt really die...but I guess they didnt want a normal "happy ending"...

On the bright side though, Kagura did the right thing in the end! And omg Kiri! She's like a little kid now...so cute! I wonder how she forgot her memory though...she only recieved a stab to the gut...does that somehow affect her brain? Lol. I hope she goes back to hear normal job though, because she was awesome. xD

I will give the manga a try, but I'm not quite motivated to know that Yomi wont really be in it? :S
Bleed for me.

She is in it.

Just a substantial bit less awesome than she is here.

Either way, it's bad for Yomi fans.

Isn't that always the case in half of the anime? They stay 90% with the same clothes throughout the whole anime; I recall seeing a wardrobe in anime that had about 10 of the same clothes hanging in it.

Looking forward to second season !

Just finished it. Pretty good series. 7/10. I will probably not read the manga, since Yomi was the only thing keeping this series from dropping to a 6.

I doubt it will be a second season, in any case I wouldn't want one without Yomi.
Damn, I knew she was gonna die, but was hoping that Kagura is gonna kill that white haired kid and somehow let Yomi survive.
The whole show was very good, but I gave it a 9 cause of the sad ending...

killing natsuki was too a serious a crime for me to ever accept yomi
but anyway, i also think it deserves a 9 ^_^

I cried. . .;-;
Everytime Yomi killed someone, I was like agh =.=
Sad how Yomi dies in the end even though it was predictable.
I wanted something like "she is broken from the stone and the 2 sisters make up and everyones happy) xD Not possible.

The ending is like the cherry on top. :9

9/10

a really awesome anime. it had its great moments, a lot of emotions was building up. everything was fitting, how it began with those 2 confusing episodes, then telling thier happy days and finally the clash in the end. totally fall in love with this anime <3
and of course those awesome characters and the lovely op <3.
dont know if they would make a 2nd one but i would definetly watch it.

i really love yomi <3, she had a lot of problems and still showed her strong side but she was so broken when she lost everything. it was really touching and i was pitying her.
dont know if i should call this a good ending, but i prefered this one over a "we save yomi because of a miracle" ending. so after all it was a great anime, and i am glad i catch this up :3
10/10 for me

eidt: imba sword is imba xD, totally reminds me of the ones in nanoha.
edit 2: besides there are still some questions that should be answered, like some scenes in the first 1-2 episodes. there are some connections between tooru and yomi and i woudl to know in which way they are related><

:3 FUCKING MASTERPIECE!

Seriously though quite good! Though the manga seems so different in comparison. If they do a followup series I hope it draws more from 0 than the actual manga.

^ Agreed. Though I don't know how they can "draw more" from Zero, hence why I don't really want a second season.

Kensuke just doesn't do the series any justice. He's a completely worthless and typical shounen "hero" for me. I was so disappointed with the manga after crying buckets for the anime... One of Zero's biggest draws was the Yomi x Kagura relationship, and it's pretty... different in the manga. Shame, really. :\

Awesome series. I wonder about the first group that first appeared? How did Yomi know them?

As for the ending, it was good.

Seems like there will be more

It just bugged me at the epilogue where you see Kensuke and Kagura by the tower... this is like in the future so I just wished she looked like her manga counterpart. I am waiting for Ga Rei to continue in anime and hope that Kagura looks like how she looks in the manga so that I won't be confused -_-''

Or you know, maybe they will just do the adaptation in the same vein they began with zero. Big possibility, though that all depends on whether they WILL do the adaptation of the manga. I'm hoping they will but it's all a coin toss in the end.

Oh my the ending was so awaited but hey, it was amazing nonetheless!!! I Really didn't expect less from this amazing show... The execution was perfect and it really leaves you a feel of wanting more and immediately go read the manga in which this amazing prequel is based on... My gosh Kagura really had a hard time today... she had to "kill" her best friend... and she said she loved her... I guess that what comes when you deny the feeling of hatred and you suddenly turn it into love.. i feel that Yomi really taunted the poor Kagura and almost made her feel like she felt when she killed Mei....I dunno what ya think, I just hope Kagura really understands what her father meant when he said to her those words... I hope Iwazaha and the NAbbu bro 2 are wrong.... I hope she recovers her human heart someday....

Signs,
Green

Eh, the final episode wasn't bad, but I think it could have been much better. Mostly regarding the final fight and Yomi's death. Sudden branch off into the future is kind of out of nowhere, even if it is leading up to the manga series, it shouldn't use that as a bridge.

Anyway, glad I picked this up and finished it finally since everything after the Mei episodes and before the final episode was incredible.

Ga-Rei zero feels a lot more western when compared to the manga Ga-Rei.

in Ga-Rei manga, there's more traditional popular Japanese Monsters such as Kamaitachi, Tengu, Yuki-onna, Kyuubi and Ogre alike

^_^ And yeah, Kagura is cuter in a few years time, Kensuke is an interesting character too ^_^

Hopefully they'll make a second season.
As for this, 9/10, one of my favourite shows.

Great series, got me hooked from the start and all the way to the end. Will there be a 2nd season? I sure hope so.

The "chocolate chopsticks" are called Pocky and are pretty popular in Asia

Hm pretty good but nothing special. Ending was OK, Yomi had to die but for me the show kinda meandered along to the end. That left the end scences not having much impact on me. I don't plan on reading the manga, so hopefully AIC can make a sequel sometime soon as they have defintely set up the ending for one.

Overall pleased I watched this;

Well i think it's my bad for reading manga first but... why the hell was Yomi so weak? In manga it was said that she was far better than Kagura (i mean before Kagura grew up). And here Kagura is lot stronger... And another think - i reeeeaaaaalllllyyyyy hoped that grown-up Kagura gonna have kick-ass voice. And what the hell was that...?

Anyway it wasn't a masterpiece but it was good, almost like manga :) 9/10

umm...i'm assuming your first language isn't english so I'm guessing you want to know what those 'chocolate chopsticks' are called - they're called Pocky.

You can pretty much find them in any asian grocery store in the sweets section or whatnot.


remember, if the world didn't suck...we'd all fall off.
