Ga-Rei Zero 04 – So, Michael Weapons and down episode.

Wow we finally got a OP song! By Minorin! It felt like they didn’t have time to record a song and had to present it on episode 4!

The first 3 episode went by like a dream. More like an OVA to be exact. The animation was clearly more detailed and there was more tension. Of course, nobody remember the guys from episode one, right?

It’s like the author simply decided that all these people in episode 1 were too boring and decided to change main characters. I mean, what the hell? I honestly thought something interesting was coming back for these guys in episode one, but they were main characters that became cannon fodders, Pedestrian Shin’s, side characters, and all that.

Unorthodox but disjointing. Almost like a waste of time.

So, eps 2 and 3 talked about the past of the two, but that wasn’t finished, so onto episode 4.

You know, I honestly feel that they could’ve juxtaposed the stories between the two in episodes 1 to 3 ala Lola Rennt sequences, and get on with the real narrative in episode 4. But instead, we’re backtracking even further.

It’s like the manga artist did a short volume consisted of 3 chapters, and his editor told him to expand it.

So he had to make up/dig out back stories, thus, we finally have a main character! Hooray!

OK, now I understand. This show is about the conflicts, binds and feelings between Kagura and Yomi, right?

That wasn’t so hard, was it?

Who were those guys in episode 1 again?

Look, I may be unfair and picky, but really, it has been a little bit disorienting, but being an anime veteran, I’m less confused. Now all we left to see is how Yomi becomes evil, and the struggles between her and Kagura…

Oh, the Michael weapons, right sorry…

First, Michael Douglas Iron (um…)

Next, Michael Pare Chain saw (you’d have to be quite old to know that one. Thanks WIKI!)

Then Michael Jackson Drill (don’t you go there…)

Finally, Michael J. Fox Boiler (more like a time machine? Jeez)

WHAT THE FUCK IS THE RELEVANCE??? Just because the master in this show is a naked dude with an afro named Michael?

So, let’s have Michael Stipe Sausage maker Anti-Evil Spirit Weapon!

And then Michael Keaton Anti-demon pole!

And our very own, Michael H. Shojo manga book case!!!

Uh…in any event, looking forward to the ties that bind these girls but the show has fallen somewhat.

(Telling a girl that an iron anti-akuma weapon should suit her, jeez, such chauvinistic comment…I love it!)

At least we know now what a Ga-Rei is – a spirit that eats spirits. Resident Evil, look out! Zombies beware!
