This felt like it could have been a regular episode on Makai no Hana. I liked it, even if the threat was literally a disembodied voice offscreen.

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.

The locations they were at are beautiful. That's such a lovely river that they visit. And since this director isn't shitty jackass, things looked well shot (directed by Oohashi Akira. Oh yeah, since the director of this episode is usually the action director in the other episodes, Koshige Namihei stepped in as the action director for this one.

My only complaint about the episode is that you can see this chain link fence with barb wire in the background of one of the "wilderness" shots.

I did enjoy this one, had a nice flow and nice action. I did wonder why we were getting a Bikuu story given her movie comes on next month. But it was a nicely done story, wasn't anything overtly complex, didnt really need to be.

Garo really does locations well. Always seems to capture the mood nicely. Also makes you want to head to Japan to visit these locations for yourself.

I agree it did seem like something lifted from Makai no Hana. But with the nature of this season, it didnt really matter. Although 6 in, I am beginning to wonder if its just individ stories or if there is a recurring item that links them all together, aside from Gonza

I think they're just individual stories. Also, it's not too surprising that they did Bikuu, with the cm for the Bikuu movie blu-ray coming out. It's just standard promotion and advertising through tie-ins.

Man, Momose Misaki is cute. Looks like she was a main character in Dogoon V and in other toku stuff.

I was a bit bummed when Erika turned out to be an assassin, because reluctant mentor Bikuu was fun to watch. At least things turned around by the end of the episode.

A disembodied voice that probably trained at least 18 assassins in Makai techniques, and sent at least one after Bikuu...I wouldn't be surprised if that plays a role in the plot of her movie.

I couldn't remember - was Bikuu's mirror supposed to show threats? That felt like it was meant to be a clue as to Erika's intentions, not just that she was nearby.

I'm annoyed when assassins go "YAAAARRRRHHHH" when trying to deal the blow.

Good episode! Erika was a good character and hopefully we will see her in a future. Garo Universe just keep getting better with the years.

Has anybody seen Bikuu's movie? The fact that they are sending makai priests to kill her (and she even says that they are after her at first) is something new and I don't know if it comes from the movie, there's a new organization made of makai priests and something else or it is the makai order who are trying to kill Bikuu.

Well the Bikuu movie is coming to Blu-Ray next month. Also there's always been Makai Priests and Knights that haven't been good. I imagine Erika was taken as a kid and trained to be a Makai Priest assassin.

This was a slow but wonderful episode. Oddly despite Bikuu being her emotionless self, I like her in here more than in Makai no Hana. Maybe because she has an entire episode to herself, and the tone was made to fit her. Either way, she's just cool. With the theme of loneliness, Bikuu goes so well with that.

As for our new comer, Erika adds some intrigue here. She's cute and I love her costume. There's just so many awesome characters in Garo-verse, it would be nice to see them all on screen together fighting a big bad enemy. For now, these standalone are fine.

5 for another great episode.

Oh yeah, I didn't realize that Momose Misaki played Lemnear in the Kyouryuuger with the lovely Tsukui Minami as Earthy.

I thought the chain-link fence actually was kind of a nice touch in that one scene. It just gave me the feeling that they were in an area that had been allowed to decay and go wild, instead of wandering around in some magical forest.
