Garo Yami wo Terasu Mono 15 released

Wiki: http://wiki.tvnihon.com/wiki/Garo_Yami_15

Watched this one in bed. Learned a bit about Ryuuga's background. I liked the overarching premise of Ryuuga setting up a grave in each town he visits, but I didn't like the beginning where it looked like they were walking through a green screen forest.

So that's why Ryuuga is mad at Burai in episode one. He made Ryuuga put down his robot dog when he became Garo.

Kinda boring episode. The backstory bit was good but the first half was basically just a clip show and I hate clip shows.

Agreed... Sorta a filler episode to recap on things and to inform you on the differences of the Horrors. And that CG Forest was... a bit too much at times.

Though there is that touching scene with Ryuuga / Doggy.

Interesting way to deliver a clip show at least. It was funny because the minute he started piling rocks I figured he was making a grave, but not for his Mom... I thought it was for Lago. I also really liked what Rian did with the flowers.

I like the episode for the most part. It's the best way to get some exposition and world building into a show. I enjoyed some of the facts and acknowledgments given in the episode.

I personally hate recap episodes, and thus had there not been plot development with them explaining how Ryuuga got his hands on the garo armor, I'd regret watching this episode.

Yeah that green screen forest wasn't done all that well, I also agree that it was kind of a filler episode. But doesn't really explain why the Garo armor is black, I wish they say more.

Lago and Ryuga was a touching scene. So from what Rian said, Garo's armor might be created from Madou Horrors? That might explain why it shines when the gold waves hit it.

I hate recap episodes but this one was well done and was at least enjoyable to watch

At the part where they talked about Sonshi lifting the Makai Ken like it was nothing I noticed before but they never really addressed it until now

The back story of Ryuga was kinda rushed in some sense since we saw like a minute of him being a child, and then straight out cut into him being older.
I think that if we really want to know about the back story, then Burai will have to say it, since he knew where the Garo armor was, and was the one who told Ryuga to go to Volcity in the first place.

Later in the episode, the one thing I keep thinking about is how this would of been the worse date ever at first XD
Since Ryuga made Rian pick up rocks
Then again Ryuga never told Rian to follow him in the first place

I also dislike clip shows but I think it's good they kept the clips to half the episode and gave us something we wanted in the other half.

Priest Burai is now even more suspicious than before. So he had the already-dimmed Garo armor and went out and found some kid to try to get it? He looked shocked when Ryuga actually pulled the blade from the rock. Was Ryuga not the first candidate?

It makes sense that armor and swords might be made in part from horror essence. I always figured "soul metal" meant "forged out of horror souls and hungry to eat more of them." It seems like a huge amount of the magic in this show is actually stolen from horrors and then purified enough to be workable. Considering Kiba in the original series, well, I didn't think this was a surprise at all. If the Garo armor happens to come from a higher tier type of horror that's not even that big of a shock, but it does explain why it might be interacting with it.

Rian and Ryuga are continuing to get along well. I like them. They're not the same kind of romance that Kaouru and Koga had but both Rian Ryuga have very different issues and personalities. I like Ryuga's personality has, well, manifested. And, he as a character is now asking the questions we are. I think it's always bad for a show when the audience knows a lot more than the main character; it makes it feel like the main character is lagging behind. That was the biggest problem with the original theatrical release of Dark City. They told the audience in a voiceover EVERYTHING the main character worked the whole movie to find out. (The director's cut is like 8x better than the theatrical version with that removed, by the way.)

Also! The movie promo was SO DAMN CUTE. Now I want Zero-Kun to get a spinoff too.

I liked this ep. Ryuga is starting to sound really serious about horror hunting now. Seeing as the madou horror mystery is somehow related to garo armor I'm really pumped about how its all going to turn out.

Oh dear, a recap episode, not something I had expected -- from last week's preview I thought we might see a childhood episode. Still, some interesting tidbits of backstory and plot get sprinkled along.

Everyone seems to be thinking Garo's armor was made from madou horrors but what if the opposite were true. Zedom somehow managed to defeat the original Garo (or at least steal the armor), use it to make his seeds, which is why the armor is now black.

I would've prefered a whole episode telling the backstory of Ryuuga, Burai and the armor. I couldn't feel the sorrow for killing Lago because we didn't see his relationship with Ryuuga.

It's a pity that they wasted like this a story with a lot of potential.

Kouga is not even in YwTM so why would they bother with a backstory of him? We all knew from ep 14 that the Garo armor had been without a wearer for a long time. What's important now is to learn about how Ryuga got his hands on the armor and thankfully for ep 15, we've got the answer to that question now.

Considering ep 15 was a clip show, it was executed quite well, I think many of us can agree that what really saved this episode from being a total waste was they finally revealed some background about Ryuga, how he obtained the Garo armor, and we also learned more about his connection with Burai and why Ryuga was so hostile towards him in the beginning of the series. The memories Ryuga has of his mother was also explained.

So even as a clip show, ep 15 has actually explained & answered alot of questions, and is a significant development.
Normally I hate clip shows/recaps because many of the ones I've watched were just totally pointless and didn't explain anything other than what has already happened. But I really like ep 15, because unlike most other clip shows/recaps, this ep actually revealed a lot of answers to many questions, which makes this ep very relevant as far as the development in the story goes.

My bad, I meant Ryuuga XD.

I'm going to edit my post.
