Garo Makai no Hana 08 released

An okay episode. These Horror centric episodes kind of hinge on how interesting the Horror's gimmick is. And while the gimmick itself wasn't that interesting, I think this is the first time we've seen a Horror made of multiple people, including children. Unless it's just the one fat guy and the rest of the people are fake? Didn't really feel like it gave any clear answers about that.

The family melting into each other was gross. A pretty good visual.

Not terrible, but not great like last week's episode either.

From a translator's perspective, the most interesting thing was trying to figure out a way to represent the family's accents.

Actually, on a meta level the actor trivia is pretty good. A lot of cast from Yami wo Terasu Mono and Gouraigan: http://wiki.tvnihon.com/wiki/Garo_Makai ... tor_Trivia

Pretty sure that's Kitagawa Keiko in those beer commercials.

That was a good boxing match between Raiga and Ichirou (the grandfather).

Horror Delitus reminds me of watching Monster House (2006)... but it looks different from the movie.

It's kind of interesting seeing the perspective some of these horrors take with the justification of eating people.

>> Unless it's just the one fat guy and the rest of the people are fake?
I thought the horror was the house itself, and *all* the people were fake?

Anyway something that I really don't get about this series. If Kouga is supposed to be Raiga's father, then that sets this taking place say 20 years after season 2/Makai Senki? If that's the case howcome Gonza hasn't aged one bit, he should be 80 and going around with a cane by now? :)

OH...Garo, yeah good episode. The house form of the horror being all practical suit and effects was good stuff!

I still don't get it. :?: :?: The Watchdog (or Zaruba) know the name and abilities of the horror of the week, but somehow they didn't know if it was one of the slab horrors or not without Mayuri. I thought the nine horrors were used to seal Eris... means that they should have known at least from its name. :(

Yes it was. She was in the previous week's commercials too and this week looks to be an alternate version.

Anyways, this episode was alright. I understood the premise of the Horror family. They prey on those who are lonely and need company. I get it although I wouldn't wander into a strange house like all the victims. Lol...The special effects of the boiling water or whatever it was actually looked cool and so was the effects of the family merging into one. This series is experimenting with different ideas and I have to give props for it.

I know Gonza just looks distinguished now but if you watch GAMERA 3: Revenge of Iris he's one of the main characters and wow, so that's what he looked like when he just cracked 40.

Anyway he's obviously an ageless Makai Butler. :p

Well, this horror kinds of reminds me of Pazuzu in season 1, but at the very least that guy healed you before he had you for dinner.

Why do most Garo scripts seem to be inspired from older season?

At first I thought they weren't going to show Raiga slaughter a bunch of kids, but they they did. Only in Japan...

A decent episode, but it felt a little light on plot. I think many recent episodes have been concentrating too much on the horrors and only giving a hint of development of the main cast. We still know next to nothing about Crow.

I actually enjoyed this episode. Giving the Horrors more substance than merely picking off humans for the sake of it makes the story more interesting.

Thanks for including Kitagawa Keiko in the beer commercial again.

But I'm still trying to figure out why Devilman needs UCC Full Throttle to power up.
