Haven't had enough Ga-Rei - Zero? This is the first character song collection from the series, featuring -- of course -- Yomi and Kagura. No. They don't sing solo. Both tracks are duets, a fact which surprised me because I half-expected that sentimental cool would be sung by Mizuhara Kaoru (Isayama Yomi) and the other one by Chihara Minori (Tsuchimiya Kagura). Oh. Well.

The songs themselves aren't fantastic. I mean, they're okay, I suppose, as anime songs, but there's nothing special about them. I do like sentimental cool as a title. It has a certain flair to it, but the song itself is...for lack of a better word, boring. Futari Shikai Nakatta actually sounds better and maintains some echoes of the series' OP theme.
