Ga Rei Zero has ended, so here’s a random ramble to rant off the last of it.
Somehow, I’m still refusing to believe that episode 1 was a pointless anticlimax. Seeing as how the death stone thingy has got that typical uber regeneration stuff, reviving that Mei girl and all, I’d say it’s not unlikely that that crew gets similar treatment — maybe they’ll get screened in the manga later? Who knows, it’s still on-going after all. Yeah, it could well just be an empty hope on my part and I’m still harping on it, but it would really have been a major waste otherwise, particularly with the ending being one of the biggest lolwtf anti-climax. Face it, many were intrigued by the shocking ending but were promptly disappointed (and probably lost) with episode2.
That Kudakitsune guy’s character seemed way different in Zero, compared to the manga. He’s more reserved, less of a joker in Zero.
Personality of Kagura is also different. Now that we’ve seen Zero, we can really see how she had changed and become more mature in the manga. This change in personality is much more believable, as opposed to the Kitsune dude (yeah, I keep forgetting his name)– for one thing, that guy seems to be more ecchi in the manga (lol).
Ga Rei Zero is a pretty enjoyable ride. Worth the watch, but don’t expect anything too much out of it. For those who have read the manga before watching Zero however, I’ll have to say that they will definitely have a lot to look forward to. Because, admittedly, Ga Rei the manga is just a rather typical Shounen action stuff, very unlike Ga Rei: Zero, which actually has a rather in-depth storyline. True, the storyline isn’t anything particularly unique or outstanding, but pretty good nonetheless. Still, I must emphasis that one must not expect too much out of it.
