Ga-Rei Zero

I watched the final episode of Ga-Rei Zero tonight. I did enjoy the series but at times it was a little depressing. The main characters, Kagura and Yomi, are so flawed that it could only end in tragedy. As the body count increases, you start to wonder if anyone is going to survive. A few do, including one of the main characters, but at a cost that is much more difficult to measure, especially for someone so young. I imagine that all soldiers must learn to harden themselves against the death and destruction around them in order to keep going, but doing so sacrifices a small part of their humanity.

Definitely an anime for a more mature audience.
