GA-REI-ZERO | 12 EPISODES
Initial reaction: it’s a slow start, but don’t sleep on it.
The first episode seems like, in a different anime, it would have been the last or next to last episode. You jump right into action, the characters already have great synchronicity with each other, their awesomeness (you assume) has been established and we know that they’re about to get the job done. The highlight of this episode comes during the last 10 minutes when things get EXTREMELY unexpected. You go from not really caring about this show or these characters you know nothing about, to being on the edge of your seat, eyes wide and profanity pulling it’s way out your mouth. If the second episode starts the way the first ended, we’re in for something good.
There was no intro on the first episode, so that’s always a positive sign of good, quality anime.
There was definitely some gore involved and its rated mature, so not recommended for anyone under the age of 15, in my opinion. I’m not actually sure what the characters names are, what the story line is or what’s going on. But based on the last 10 minutes, I’m okay with that.
