The Ga-Rei Zero Rewatch Episode Twelve: Yearning Prayer

When we began this journey, the show asked one, single, simple, yet terrible question. Could you kill someone you loved, out of love? That question has been the driving force behind everything that has happened to this point. With Nori, we learned that no, he could not. This is not a bad thing, in many … More The Ga-Rei Zero Rewatch Episode Twelve: Yearning Prayer

The Ga-Rei Zero Rewatch Episode Ten: The Other Side Of The Tragedy

We now come full circle, arriving back where we began in the first two episodes. Things are different now, however. We know these people. We now who Yomi is, and we know why she has turned against the SDCD, her friends, and her own beloved sister, Kagura. We know why she is a monster. As … More The Ga-Rei Zero Rewatch Episode Ten: The Other Side Of The Tragedy

The Ga-Rei Zero Rewatch Episode Eight: Whereabouts of Revenge

Ideology isn’t something that changes overnight. While this might seem obvious, in reality, due to the nature of the world we have come to live in, many seem to have forgotten it. The instant gratification mindset that has become prevalent in many countries, the U.S. included, bleeds over into other areas as well, including the … More The Ga-Rei Zero Rewatch Episode Eight: Whereabouts of Revenge

The Ga-Rei Zero Rewatch Episode Seven: Chains of Blame

Welcome back to the Ga-Rei Zero rewatch. This week, we’re going to dwell a bit on Yomi and Nori’s relationship. Lemme tell ya, there’s a lot to dwell on, too. Just as a reminder, these two aren’t getting married because they want to, but rather, because it was arranged between their families. While they certainly … More The Ga-Rei Zero Rewatch Episode Five: Obstinate Feelings

The Ga-Rei Zero Rewatch Episode Four: The Cause Of The Duty

As we enter the fourth episode, I want to take a moment to reflect on the two extremely different Yomi Isayama’s we’ve seen so far. In the first two episodes, a savage killer with no remorse, taking down her former allies with a mad smile of glee. Then, in last week’s episode, a nurturing and … More The Ga-Rei Zero Rewatch Episode Four: The Cause Of The Duty

The Ga-Rei Zero Rewatch Episode Three: The Time Of The Chance Encounter

Welcome back to the Ga-Rei Zero rewatch! This week, as we dive into episode 3, we actually start getting some background on the characters. Which is kind of the magical thing about Ga-Rei Zero, really, that they tell the story the way they do. Allow me to take a moment to explain. The first two … More The Ga-Rei Zero Rewatch Episode Three: The Time Of The Chance Encounter
