Ga-Rei -Zero-[sadhl=2138]ga-rei-zero[/sadhl][sadhdc][/sadhdc] Hmm, no thread yet? Well, I finally got time to catch up. I'm liking it a lot more than I would have thought. Looks like this series is going to do what kure-nai did, start off with a prequel to the "current" timeline in the manga. To be honest I never found Yomi all that compelling (Shizuru was more interesting to me). And I was really looking forward to Kensuke and Kagura and not Yomi's story. Now I'm getting more and more drawn into Yomi's past; I'm more drawn to this than Tytania or the other ones I was high up on. My only worry is that I feel like Yomi's past will carry this show to its end, much like kure-nai. As much as I'm enjoying Yomi right now, I still want to see the Yomi or Shizuru arc, not just the pre-story. Actually this feels a lot like my feelings when kure-nai came out. Both were initially very high on my radar and then dropped a lot when I realized they were prequels. Then they began to pull me back in. At least this time around I don't know the ending to the story, so I can thoroughly enjoy this as a semi-n00b. It does have one of the better first episodes that I can recall sans bike-fighting. Well, that was actually quite good too, in a different way . . . And of note, I'm glad to see Yomi use the iron. It's great to see that weapon come back. Almost as good as Ken-chan's "beast."
