Funimation Adds Ga-Rei Zero TV Anime (Updated)

posted on by Heather Skinner
2008 series about government special forces that deal with the supernatural

The North American anime distributor Funimation began streaming the first two English-subtitled episodes of the 2008 Ga-Rei: Zero supernatural television anime series on its YouTube channel on Thursday. Funimation has yet to officially announce its license for this anime.

Ga-Rei: Zero adapts Hajime Segawa's The Enchained Spiritual Beast Ga-Rei manga series about the Japanese Ministry of Defense's anti-paranormal special forces group called the Paranormal Disaster Countermeasure Headquarters (PDCH). This organization is responsible for protecting the country and its civilians from supernatural and paranormal events. A girl named Kagura works in PDCH in her hunt for supernatural creatures.
