Ga Rei should get more sales =(


I completely agree, Ga-Rei really needs a sequel for its anime adaption. Hopefully the current sales are good enough to green light it one day. :(

Ga Rei should get more sales =(

Regios is better than a lot of the stuff out there... although after reading about 40pages of the light novels, it seems the anime isn't that good.

Totally didn't see that coming. xD

@windy- Is Chrome Shelled Regios that bad?

Not Windy, but Chrome Shelled Regios is pretty damn bad. It's bad enough that I now watch it on fast-forward yet not bad enough that I can bring myself to drop it.

I can't believe Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann: Kirameki Yoko Box ~Pieces of Sweet Stars~ is so high up. It's probably the most pointless milking-the-franchise I've ever seen.
WHY, THEREFORE, DID I ENJOY IT?!
