GA-REI ZERO Packs A Jawbreaker Of A Surprise

At first, I though it'd be a more jacked-up GHOSTBUSTERS. But then...

Yu Yu Hakusho has a way better dub than the sub.

Gai-Rei Zero certainly does take some unexpected turns in the first episode, although I probably would see it more akin to having been fooled into a false sense of how it was going to run rather than trolling.

Gai-Rei Zero sure does start off interesting and it mostly keeps it that way. It does calm down a bit during the more warm-hearted moments of the show but it is setting up to what you saw in the first episode.

To let you know some shows still do surprises, mostly for me since I kinda stopped reading manga and only read summaries of shows.

Cool, thanks for answering my questions. I also enjoyed the surprise at the end of the first episode and it's what made me want to watch the rest of the show. I also believe that both subs and dubs can be enjoyed and almost always give dubs a shot before shooting them down. I hope you enjoy the rest of the show like I did.

well yes and no. Yusuke english VA is awesome but the rest kinda are weak. Hiei would be kind of the same but Kurama's too soft and Kuwabara sounds more like a parody of voice, little range. the rest are hit and miss for both. I loved Chu's australian accent but there are some that you can really hear that this was an early dub.

Also, Ga-Rei Zero = Awesome!

I went in pretty much the exact same way, I didn't know anything about the series other than its basic genre and was completely floored at the end of the first episode. It had its ups and downs but was overall a serviceable show.

After watching it I went and checked out the manga only to be disappointed. This is one of those rare cases where the adaptation is vastly superior to the source material.

I didn't really care for Ga-Rei Zero.

I watched this when it first came out. Haven't checked out the dub yet and don't know if I will. From what I remember, the show was interesting but I really hated the ending (not going to spoil anything). Not a bad show though and the animation is solid.

No opinion on Ga-Rei Zero, because I've never watched it.

I would agree that Evangelion had a really good dub. I prefer the Eva dubs over the subtitles. Though, I almost always prefer subtitles.

There are some shows I prefer the dub to the sub. Most are from my childhood like Dragonball (Z), Yu-Yu-Hakusho, Zoids, Digimon, and the like. Others make more sense to me to be dubbed. My example is Hellsing and Hellsing Ultimate. The characters are from Britain, Italy, and Germany, so I like them keeping their regional accents as opposed to them speaking Japanese. Now if only they could figure out the license holder fiasco and finish dubbing Ultimate, I would be very happy.
