After a routine raid, the rookie sky pirate Cou finds a most unusual cargo in his mates' cargo hold: Ren, an "Edel Reid", a race prized by humans for granting special combat power to their partners through "Reacting". He quickly discovers, however, that Ren is even more prized than he expected. The pirate ship is visited by three members of the Edel Reid Complete Protection Agency "Arc Aire", who try to purchase her. When Cou refuses, the ship is suddenly attacked by a mysterious force, and Cou's captain charges him with Ren's protection. In this series, there are three human "species", humans, Edil Raid/Eden Reid and Sitting Raid. The Raids have magical power and can "react" with human beings. If they do so they become living weapons with several great abilities. Sitting Raid are artificially created Edil Raid. The sky pirate Could, the extremely strong and legendary, but newly awaken Edil Raid girl Ren and three members of Arc Aile, an Edil Raid protection organization, are on a ...

How is this anime series only rated 6.6/10? This series is Extremely underrated and I am unable to understand how it is not rated amongst the top 50 anime of this decade. It's currently my favorite series, and I know that's because I just saw it. But I know this series will remain in my top 5 for a long time, maybe even for life. I feel they combined it all perfectly, I found myself getting jealous when characters should have felt jealous. I got pulled in by the story, airships and sky pirates, it was a treat for the eye during moments. Battle scenes all though not intense were satisfying enough, they didn't really progress in fighting skill very much. I would have liked to have seen more development over time in reference to gaining skill (say over 50-100 episodes instead of 26) I'm still just amazed it only got a six point six out of 10. It should be 10! Anyone rating it lover than an 8 obviously didn't pay much attention or was expecting too much for it. I am currently praying for a sequel series with the same characters, idc what happens, I just want another elemental gelade adventure with the same lovable characters :] Recommend it to any anime fan that isn't a rating-happy moron ^~^
