Product Description

The creative team behind the Full Metal Panic! trilogy is back with a nightmare-inducing series about teenage exorcists forced to draw swords against bloodthirsty creatures of unholy origins.

Kagura and Yomi may look like ordinary school girls as they walk the streets of Tokyo clad in short skirts and knee-high socks, but they’re the heroes you scream for when monsters creep out of the darkness. These sword-totting sisters are part of an elite counterattack unit that specializes in suppressing outbreaks of supernatural activity. They train together, live together, eat together, and spend their nights disemboweling demons with sacred blades. Tragedy strikes when Yomi is possessed by a dark spirit, and Kagura must choose between raising her weapon against the eerily familiar face of ultimate evil – or watching her flesh and blood slaughter innocent citizens. In a life or death battle that pits sister against sister, survival may be the greatest agony of all.

The Limited Edition comes in collectible packaging.

Ga Rei Zero (2008) is a dark, supernatural adventure, based on a manga by Hajime Segawa. Fate and heredity dictate that teenager Kagura Tsuchimiya must become a Vanquisher, a member of an elite core dedicated to fighting supernatural monsters that menace Tokyo. During their training, she and Yomi Isayama adopt each other as sisters, sharing secrets and Pocky Sticks. But Yomi is seduced by a mysterious boy who offers her a "Bane Stone," an enchanted gem that increases her powers but devours her soul. Inevitably, she and Kagura must meet in a duel only one can survive. Although the tone, theme, and characters in Ga Rei Zero recall numerous other anime series, the story is hopelessly muddled and badly told. It's difficult to keep track of the cast, as the filmmakers keep offing characters they've just introduced: Ga Rei Zero has a body count approaching Hellsing's. Kagura, who fusses and whines, even when her life is threatened, is hardly an endearing character, and Yomi looks and sounds like someone from Anime Central Casting. After 12 episodes, the audience has no idea who the evil boy with the Bane Stones is, why he's always surrounded by blue butterflies, or why he's out to cause so much trouble. With no sequel on the horizon, viewers may never find out. (Rated TV MA: graphic violence, violence against women, grotesque imagery, nudity, tobacco use) --Charles Solomon
