Much better. Same staff too, so no idea why the quality was so low last week.

This week's episode is almost deceptively simple, but since it involves the three core characters and their dynamic, it comes out stronger for it.

Whereas OG Jinga was a bad dad for leaving his kid with obviously untrustworthy villagers, Neo Jinga gives in to his little brother's whining almost immediately and puts him in obvious peril, despite Alva and Fuusa being the voice of reason. Taiga would have just smacked that kid to shut him up, not drag him on a Horror hunt.

Also, I'm probably terrible, but how disappointing is it that kid Jinga survives all this? What's his name again?

Random thoughts:
-If it ain't Soul Metal, you're swinging jack shit, kid. Why are you here again?
-Fuusa's fear/doubt being Jinga-related kind of sucks. Develop her character more!
-Interestingly, Jinga's mirror doesn't accuse him of being a Horror. And Touma with his recovered memories doesn't seem to think so either. So why does he say that initially?
-What's Jinga talking about at the end? He doesn't ever cut anyone down with his left hand. In episode 0, he does the finishing blow with both hands.
-Nice use of a magatama to continue this series' themes of light and dark. After all, you've got to sneak that yin/yang symbol in there somewhere.
-I'm probably the only person who cares about this, but I notice Nishi Rintaro (Shadam from DaiRanger) is credited as the voice of a Horror in this episode, but I don't think a Horror speaks? Maybe they meant to credit him for the last episode?
-I didn't see a suit actor for the Horror, so I guess he was completely CGI

4/5 stars, let this be your bare minimum for an episode from here on out.

So I have a theory on what's going on, I'll put it in a spoiler in case anyone doesn't want the spectulation.
Spoiler
Messiah, or an agent of Messiah is the reason Jinga revived, and he's awoken a unique ability to absorb horrors into himself when cutting them down, the horror victim returning human might just be an unintended side effect.

Messiah needs a fallen knight who's absorbed x amount of horrors to escape the Makai, she's already been summoned as of the movie, so she might not need a thousand like with Kiba, but right now in the series this just makes sense to me, Jinga's an unsuspecting agent of Messiah's true return.
I'm really digging the soundtrack so far too, the opening theme is pretty catchy and there's been some wonderful piano pieces, looking forward to whenever the OST is available.

Good job for going there, Production.

Great episode.

Good episode. For a minute I thought they were going to touch on Jinga's past life as a Horror, but I guess they didn't go that route (just yet maybe). Is it weird that I find Jinga to be a more likable protagonist than Ryuga? I know its two different series, but I just like Jinga as a character more than Ryuga.

What do I have to do to convince people to watch Garo?
Usual GARO fanservice, where you at?!

I guess the same thing can be said about tokusatsu in general, haha. But it feels like not many people are watching Jinga this time.

Phew. Back to very good episode again. i'm relieved.
I didn't expect the "Little brother will remember everything at some point" to be dealt with so fast though. I expected him to be the main antangonist somehow. Not the mastermind behind the events obviously, but the one you have to fight in the end.

All the plotlines I thought were going to drag and be the main plot were dealt with already (except how the daddy became a horror) so I don't know where the show is going now. And that's a good thing. can't wait.

Time for some one offs until the writer feels like working on the main story again! Yay!

They say that is not a Makai sword, not that is not soul metal. I've always understood that they were two different things. For example, women can wield soul metal, but not Makai swords.

10 days have passed since the last episode. He probably killed horror in that spam and they were not revived.

The problem with Jingas new power is that it cheapens each episode. Being able to revive his brother is a cop out.

I do kind of agree with Jingas reasoning for bringing his brother along though. Scaring the shit out of him and showing him how powerless he was would have driven him to be stronger and more determined.

Except he literally died since he was a child brought into a life or death perilous situation. Good thing his brother is the one person in the world who can cure Horrorism.

Touma said that the mark on jinga's hand looks like wolf fangs(garo) . Given that in makai language Garo signifies 'hope', that fuusa is obsessed with pairing with the ultimate knight and that Jinga's impersontor is such a stylish badass i conclude that Jinga is the next Garo.

My 2 zenies

Please bear my bad english.

Ps :Happy birthday みんなさん。

Jinga becoming Garo at the end would be a trip.
