Kind of another disappointing episode from Shioda. With Jinga and co taking a back seat once more, the focus of the episode is on the Horror's backstory. While the concepts are good, the actual story was a bit boring and drawn out and we don't get much of a payoff for the murder of his family.

I think the episode asks some good questions, but fails to come up with interesting answers for those questions. It's like the writer thought "What if the Horror is like Batman except he only kills bad people." And the answer we get is "maybe it's good if some bad people die, before they kill your family" or "it's okay if someone hits you with a car and beats you with a metal rod and burns the memento of your son, since you're a Horror you can take those hits. In fact, maybe take that stray in as your new son so you can show him right from wrong since people can change."

In the end, you just get "maybe life is complicated and there's shades of grey to most things." It's true to life, but maybe it's not as compelling a statement as something definitive and full of conviction. At least the next episode looks like it'll focus on the knights again.

I like how complacent Jinga seems to be getting with his newly discovered power, can't wait for him to find out what he's doing is really really bad for some reason.

You can feel like lack of budget this episode. The armour kill was off screen and the horror was just the actor with fangs.

Nice humanisation of the horror of the week, but the problem is we don't really spend much time with heroes. It was okay for the school episode because we have that revelation at the end, but this episode comes across as a big nothing burger.

hope this flip flopping in focus between the main cast and the horrors of the week doesn't become a recurring thing with this series

Actually, Garo series tend to focus on the Horror of the week, except this time, it's not just Horror killing people, but it also give a backstory for the people who became Horrors. The main problem I have with focusing too much on the Monster of the Week is that it usually prevent from developing the story and the characters, even if that focus allow to show the threat they pose.

Only in some instances does most of the episode focus on the Horror though. Makai Senki for the first half was pretty bad with this. The other seasons have a good balance between actual character progression and the Horror of the week.

while I understand your feelings, I didn't find the episode as boring as the school one.
Maybe because it was a guy kicking bad guys asses with bones breaking sounds and all instead of 20min akward feeling giving school bullying.
But the fact the plot isn't taking off yet is annoying yes.

lol at the moment Touma is like "so the guy became an horror after his family was executed ?"
=> yeah that's totally not what you did last week dude

This is a 4 because it was a low budget episode as another member said however the ending was cool with the addition of a new priestess and we have a new makai knight who is a lancer user. Very cool indeed! :D

I really liked this episode. I'm not so bothered by the lack of suit and horror. It's not like we haven't seen it before. Although I would have liked to have seen what the horror looked like.

Have there been any press releases outside of the show or anything stating when this is supposed to take place? Episode 0 said "after being defeated by the messiah his soul floated for a long time without aim in the darkness". Is this supposed to be a long time after Ryuuga? There's been no tech leap in the world, or does time work differently in horror world? I'd also like to know how he was reborn. Many questions. Hopefully they answer them.

They probably are leaving it mysterious because it'll be a plot point later.

At mark 9:33, is the subs really supposed to be "paper" instead of "papa"?

Humanizing horrors?, sounds way too good to be true in a Garo series, it seems to me like Jinga's bite by Kadeena gave his right arm the power to seal the horrors into himself without him knowing it, just like Mayuri in "Makai no Hana" who seals the 9 horrors into her preventing the resurrection of Messiah, coincidentally is also tied to the fallen Makai Knight Jinga who was killed by Messiah.

btw, pardon my ignorance, i have not read the other threads yet, this is still in the Ryuga-verse right, yet if this Jinga is now reborn years after his death by Messiah, is it safe to assume Ryuga is now dead from old age and there's a new Makai Knight wielding Garo.

EDIT: just saw it, Shepard already posted the timeline bit lol!, totally missed it :P
