Funi Comes Through With Ga-Rei Zero!

I haven't been this excited about a licensing announcement since Nozomi announced it was going to be releasing the ARIA franchise!  Ladies and Gentlemen, in early 2011 Funimation will be releasing Ga-Rei Zero!

Yomi & Kagura seem less than thrilled.
Of course, I'm thrilled, no matter what the Monochrome Schoolgirls think.  I'd like to think that my episodic writeup of the show helped Funi make up their mind in some tiny way... I doubt it, but I'd like to think so. 

I'm honestly surprised it took this long for a company to get the rights to the show; it seems tailor-made for the American market.  Cute girls, swordplay, supernatural beasties, good story and artwork, cute girls, Pocky... really, what more could you ask for?  And when it goes over-the-top, it really goes over-the-top... it's great!

Okay, it isn't the greatest anime ever, but it IS good, and it IS fun, and it WAS well worth the time I spent on the writeups.  I'll be getting it as soon as it's available, for sure.

And if you'd like, here's the links for the episodic writeups, by entry:
ep01 ep02 ep03 ep04 ep05 ep06 ep07 ep08 ep09 ep10 ep11 ep12
I've been meaning to do that for a while now...

A tip o' the chapeau to commenter Siergen for the pointer!

1 They're just disappointed that they have a full box of Pocky sticks.  It's much more interesting when they only have one left...
