What exactly is retsuden? I've seen it for Ultraman and now Garo and I am not sure if it something that is worth looking into. With Ultraman is seemed like it was just recaps and a bunch of explanations of things and nothing really new to add to the story. Is it the same with Garo? But in general what is it?

It's just Japanese for "series".

列伝 【れつでん】 (n) series of biographies

Just a way to tell a series of stories that may or may not be connected to each other.
