Garo Makai no Hana 12 released

The episode in which Raiga drugs some girl and they have a trip together.

Also Mickey Curtis shows up.

Edit: Okay, so what was the deal with the Sadako ghost girl? Couldn't they have showed Raiga and Crow slashing her instead of thin air?

Normally I like slow paced stories like this, but I have to admit I was only half paying attention to it. For some reason, I felt like this was better done in Makai Senki 10.

So the girl is alone in her house. But she looks like Mayuri... or looks very similar.

When I watch the previous Garo series all the time, it thrills me when Raiga saw the vision of himself with his father and mother.

If she's a human? That I don't know if they slash her.

This episode was a head-scratcher all the way around. It doesn’t appear to serve any purpose in progressing the plot along, and it wasn’t very interesting for a one-off either. It also looked abnormally low budget for a Garo episode, between the cotton ball on a string and the colored spotlights scattered in the background. The spirit walk in Makai Senki had some of the most beautiful imagery in all of the series episodes and movies, and to say that this felt like a cheap imitation is a gross understatement.

I’m also annoyed that we didn’t get any follow-up or explanation as to what was going on with Mayuri in the credits last episode.

The only thing I liked about this episode was Raiga seeing his parents which were perfect silouettes of Kaoru and Kouga. That definitely brought a smile to my face in a rather boring episode.

I'm assuming this episode was easier to translate since it's lighter in dialogue than usual?

And it's interesting to see a "Total Recall" novel in her collection.

I agree with zaruba on this one only the flashback scene was interesting in this episode, at the very least they could have shown us what the beast looked like but we didn't even get that.

An episode where the horror would be considered an after-thought. Its as if they though "Wait we forgot the horror, quick lets shoot a scene with a scary girl and stick it in". also, said scene feels out of place in this episode.

This episode was weird and boring. There was a "Grudge" type girl who appeared for a few seconds, and then rest of the episode seems to be in a trippy vision with hallucinations. Not to mention the supposed Dragon that Raiga and the girl see before this vision ends. We never saw a dragon but the far camera angle and dragon sounds is supposed to sell the illusion. I guess. A weak overall episode.

This kinda reminded me on Leo-Kaoru episodes. Boring as hell. Seeing Crow 2 minutes scene are never enough.

I think the next episode will start developing the main plot (and if we're lucky we'll get a new opening, or that's for the 14th episode?). As in the 1st Garo series, the first half of the series is about fillers and the rest starts developing the real plot. They have probably saved budget for the next episode, I just hope i'm not wrong.

LMAO. That's messed up. The actress might even be autistic for reals. :P

This was the worst episode by far. The entire production was just low budget as hell. Completely pointless to watch. The only thing that was sort of neat was Raiga seeing his fake parents. We didn't even get to see the legendary Pokémon. This reminded me of the Kaoru / Leo-bonding episode with the Spirit Beast but that was done a lot better, and with a real fight scene. I don't even understand what Raiga and Crow slashed outside the house. Did they break some sort of barrier apart or what?

Still, gotta love the random Crow appearances for no reason. As for the next episode, it looks like we'll finally be getting some story progression and possibly more Makai Knights making a debut. I hope.

Well, damn!
I thought she was cute but really awkward. Like immensely awkward.

Guys those comments are hugely offensive to me who has autism and saw no signs of autism in the character (being cheery doesnt make someone have learning difficulties)
