This anime really grew to me a few weeks after I finished it. Don't get me wrong, I loved it while watching this series, but this is one of those rare cases that got better over time.

It's best described as a Drama / Action / Supernatural anime. It starts with great action (the first episode was what I hoped Canaan would be, awesome fast-paced action) and works hard on the character-development once you're a few episodes in. But really, with an OP like this, I was already sold at the very beginning:

Check out the full version as well, I think it's even better.

This is the prologue to the Ga-Rei manga, and gave me all the motivation I could ask for to start reading it. Don't be expecting a masterpiece, Ga-Rei -Zero- isn't flawless, but fans of good character development, action and drama shouldn't miss out on this beauty.

I give Ga Rei Zero the same score as you do ^^ It really is a great anime, probably the best I've watched this summer, only second to NHK ni Youkoso!

There is a certain fight which had an AWESOME theme as background music. Since it's a spoiler I won't say which fight, but now I remembered it I'm going to look for the song right away =P

Pretty good review. As you pointed out, anyone that is mildly interested in watching that show should watch the OP first. It really is kind of like a condensed version of everything that goes on in this series.

The only thing I will add is that Ga-Rei Zero CAN be flawless to some people. ;)

Personally, was my favourite series of 2008.
