Alt title: Today's moral: Don't be in a shitty situation or you'll turn into a monster

Last episode rating: 4.3 out of 5 stars (10 votes)

The experience was probably marred for me by troubles we had with our video source, but I didn't particularly like this episode. I probably bring this up way too often, but this is sort of why I don't like Ryuugaverse Horrors. In the original series, it seemed pretty clear you became a Horror because you were a shitty person or did shitty things as a human.

Ryuugaverse Horrors just seem like you can feel bad and then you became a Horror. I think it's pretty obvious at this point that Jinga is being done by the Garo B team with little to no input from Amemiya, and they're not quite deft enough to write stories that traverse the grey area of morals while telling an interesting story. Like, we're not even getting cool Horror designs.

I'll just say it, I think having someone become a Horror because she was nearly raped is pretty awful and problematic.

That said, having Fuusa go undercover was pretty interesting as a premise, but I don't think they push it far enough. It would have been nice to see Fuusa stand on her own and be a cool lady, but she doesn't quite have the spunk of Rian or Jabi. Heck, even Rekka was pretty charming in her own stilted way. Sorry Fuusa, hope you get more stuff to do next time! You did look nice though, all dressed up.

Looks like Jinga legitimately isn't aware of his evil side. I don't know how I feel about that.

3/5 stars. This flip flop between plot episode and filler episode about a Horror is starting to get grating. It kills the pacing when you start getting excited about stuff happening to the main characters, only to go through a week of Horror-focused stuff.

I feel bad for Fuusa's actress since her character was a bit spunky in the first episode, but she really isn't given that much to do.

Edit: Also, the ending's rushed and a fucking bummer.

I think we need to start a "Jinga leans into a person and says something ominous" counter. God I love this guy when he overacts.

Bringing back that Cold Open, eh? There better be some big whams coming in the next few episodes.

Oh dear, Fuusa-chan. Better get out of that partnership while you can.

I've detected a NSFW gravure model among the girls in the bar because I've typed in that woman's name on google and the hamster has two videos.

OK episode, but those times Jinga got too close to Fuusa are warnings that things are gonna hit the fan.

I mean, Garo as a series has been hiring porn stars since day one. Like one of the first women you see in Garo is a porn star.

I do like it that the show gets JAV actresses in bit roles. I'm currently following one of them (she's retired now) on Twitter.

Also, loved their GAROween stream days ago!

Actually, I remember Makai No Hana and there was the same things, especially with the homeless woman from episode 2. Beside, it's not the shitty situation that transform into Horrors, it's one's reaction that create Inga, you know, revenge, wanting to kill someone on the heat of the action because of what they did to you, etc. The episode just explain how they got those feeling that opened the gate for the Horrors. It doesn't matter if it's always opened or opened for a minute, what's important is that it got opened with an Inga Object close.

This is the first instance in all of this series that I can recall a scene being so rapey. Like they've implied it before but I don't remember seeing anything like this.

Silly Jinga. You ate the whole horror this time.

This is the extremely low quality episode that we always get at the middle of a Garo series. The horror looked really bad and low budget . We didn't get an action scene or armor this time.

Too bad because Fuusa looks so beautiful in this episode. She is really a beautiful girl and clearly have feelings for Jinga. The poor girl is going to end up friend zoned and dead for sure :(...

Jinga is acting like his old evil one and even ate the horror this time. Looks like its just like the intro says that he is half evil and half good?... I'm not sure what is happening...

4/5 I just love Fussa! <3

Will Fuusa find out Jinga's dual nature and say "Okay, I get the gist of it."?

That is not true. There are several instances of people who did nothing particularly shitty and became horror. People who lost someone beloved, people who were suffering, homeless, that Zero samurai...

And that's is the point of this season, to challenge those preconceptions and go even deeper in the gray area.

Someone becoming an horror because she was nearly raped is not awful and problematic, it is an interesting issue that goes beyond "you bad me good".

I just think it's dumb to present becoming a Horror in this way. If I punched you in the face, and then you got mad at me for punching you, does that make you a good candidate for turning into a Horror?

I think they've gotten a touch lazy with it.

Makai Senki was good because they showed that the transformations were caused by items that had accumulated a shit tonne of Inga, like the lighter from the first episode.

Here, it just kind of happens. Shit, they even show the gate in the school episode.

Wasn't the Gate here the dad's watch? Does that even make sense? I guess it's supposed to be a memento of the dad, but maybe it's full of evil shit because he's not there? It kind of seems like the storytelling is so poor that it just comes out of the watch because it happened to be there. Which isn't how it works!

yes yes Fuusa is gorgeous!
She has the girl-next-door look and Rian just oozes the appeal of a grown woman.
These two are my favourite Makai Priestess.
