Re: Zero -Dragon Blood- 13 released

I felt the last episode was a little anticlimactic. It seems the producers tried to be different for the sake of being different and their efforts didn't really have the desired impact. 1) The alice clone at the start of the episode. Her appearance at the end of the last episode had me excited, beca...

Re: Garo Makai Retsuden 12 released

Does anyone find it interesting that Raiga had to fight Zaji three times, while Kouga fought Zaji twice in this episode. Can anyone confirm if he fought Zaji only once on Makai Senki? If so, this is a very nice touch. Seems that Zaji must be killed an additional time each subsequent battle? Gotta su...

Re: Garo Makai Retsuden 12 released

I also don't think they make any references to the Senate. Instead in the future of the original continuity we get Bikuu and the dark slashers and the Senate is definitely running things and signing territories. If I'm not wrong there is a reference ot the Senate in the last episode of Yami, with A...

Re: Garo Makai Retsuden 12 released

There's still the issue of Kaoru's picture book appearing in one of the episodes of Yami no Terasu, which suggests that it is set some time in the future after the first Garo series in the very least. That said, Yami no Terasu was the series that got me hooked on the whole Garo franchise, so for me,...

Re: Garo Makai Retsuden 08 released

Well, I guess Crow has taken over Eiji's role as leader after the events of Makai no Hana. Nice little continuity there, though yeah, not sure I see the point of that episode. I still have no idea what his organisation does. That said, I find it interesting that this is probably Crow's best and lon...

How exactly does Makai society function?

I have been following all the episodes and movies of Garo and this just keeps bugging me. Granted, it's a TV show, and a lot of things seem to get hand waved offscreen, but the whole system of makai knights and priests seems quite decentralised. There doesn't seem to be a central organisation coordi...

Re: Garo Makai Retsuden 06 released

Momose Misaki is adorable as Erika. She's just so cute that she's believable as a clumsy would-be assassin trying to worm her way under Bikuu's defenses. I bet it's easy to play Bikuu. Don't talk much, act and look cool, and show no emotion. My impression is that Erika really was that inept an assa...

Re: Which returning character would you like to see most in the next episodes?

My wishlist. A Crow / Eiji teamup showcasing more of the shadow knight tribe. They seem to be trained as spies and infiltrators and an insight into their ways should be interesting. That was always one of the more underdeveloped parts of the Hana series. What happened to Kouga and Kaoru after they w...

Re: Garo Makai Retsuden 05 released

So if putting a male hand bone in is enough to hold a sword, what do you need to add on to summon the armor? Does the armor have a penis detector or something? I think about dual class characters as typically being the worse of all worlds. Like the red mage from final fantasy. He can use some crumm...

Re: Garo Makai Retsuden 05 released

I think the inclusion of Leo made sense, but I don't see Yuna's continued use of her Makai blade ending well. Leo's advice about heart mattering as much as skill makes sense when you recall his backstory, about how he was selected to wear the armour despite his brother being more skilled. But he neg...

Re: Garo Makai Retsuden 04 released

From what I gather, it's a recurring theme that Rian and Ryuga can't seem to admit their feelings for each other. They have grown so accustomed as comrades that it just seems awkward for them to take that relationship to the next stage. The main protagonist, for all his "loser-ishness", at least has...

Re: Garo Guren no Tsuki 06 spoiler thread

I found it touching that the mother resisted falling into darkness long enough to die a natural death and avoid turning into a horror. I think this has rarely ever been emphasised - people being on the brink of darkness, yet finding that moral courage to step back at the critical moment and redeem t...

Re: Garo Guren no Tsuki 01 spoiler thread

I am trying to figure out what the gimmick in this series is. So Raikou cannot summon the Garo armour on his own? He also seems winded after using the armour. Zaruba being encased in stone is interesting, hope they elaborate on that in the coming episodes.

Re: Garo -Gold Storm- Shou 23 released

I found it weird that Jinga was able to wield the Garoken. I thought the whole point was that only the one it recognises as Garo could wield it. Maybe it is a plot hole conveniently ignored in the interest of a cool dual-wielding moment? I felt that Jinga went down too quietly. I like my villains co...
