While many of us will probably scream at even the thought of a ghost being near us, freshman Nimura Kensuke just thinks of it as a common everyday thing, seeing as how he has the uncanny ability to see so many of them on a daily basis. Things soon heat up for him when he meets a girl who changes his life from then on. Her name is Kagura, and she has the power to summon a mighty "spirit devourer"—otherwise known as a "Ga-Rei"—called Byakuei. So, what's Nimura to do? Chase down the evil spirits and and have Kagura summon the Ga-Rei to devour them, of course! Now, come feast on their adventures like some ravenous Ga-Rei!

I came across Ga-Rei wanting to know how the manga panned out after events to the anime adaptation Ga-Rei Zero(prequel to this manga which aired in 2008).

Unfortunately, like an over-hyped Hollywood blockbuster, Ga-Rei had potential to go places in regards to being a manga-worthy favorite, but did not live up to its anime counterpart due to what I thought was a 'rushed' ending.

For those who have not seen the anime, although not a necessary watch as the manga does cover background to some of the characters, I do recommend viewing anyways if you would like to get the emotional feelings that is lacking in the read more

Even though the introduction makes the impression that this manga is an episodic-styled, comedic, and typical ghost-exterminating story, it is really not. Ga-rei really is a plot-intensive (heavily involved in a lot of mysteries of the past), action-packed, and intense light-romance manga.

In fact, I call the broad category of manga that possess the level of intensity in works such as Ga-rei: epicness! Seriously. Just when the protagonist fell into an absolutely despairing situation, Kensuke always does something epic that saves the day. Anyways, that feeling just can’t be put into words…

Another one of the biggest strengths that Ga-rei has is the way it narrates the read more

I've read all the chapters of the manga and it was wonderful except the ending.... The author should have probably ended it at the first arc...

Story 8/10
Kensuke, the main protagonist of the show has been seeing ghosts for his entire life. Because of this, he's a loser and can't get a girlfriend. These people taught he's a wierdo. One day, Kensuke met Kagura by accidentally kissing each other. Later, Kagura transferred school and she insists that they become friends. Kagura finds out that he can also see ghosts and she recruits him to work for the SDCD (Supernatural Disaster Countermeasures Division). This is where they read more

A boy being one of very few who can see spirits and demons isn't an uncommon storyline, but what makes Ga-Rei stand out is its emphasis on the girl that he meets. She has extraordinary power that even she is unaware of, and she takes the stage. Though he is undoubtedly strong, she has a strength that rivals that of the gods. Her destiny has been decided.

I wasn't expecting much from a plot like this, seeing that the ghost, spirits, and demons thing has been around for a while, but the 52 chapters did lead me to think that Ga-Rei had something to offer. And read more
