Garo -Gold Storm- Shou 02 released

Have to admit that I thought this week's episode was a bit on the boring side. Plus the Rian hostage situation was incredibly stupid.

So I see we're doing the lazy Wizard "the monster got away" thing. Note that Ryuuga was about to chase after the Horror when Rian actively stops him. The guy's probably not even out of line of sight yet at this point.

At least we get to see what Ryume's pad is all about. I like it, it reminds me of the child priestesses from the original Garo.

Got to love the butterflies with the skull faces. Actually, isn't that a Japanese myth thing? I remember the skull butterflies in Zelda too.

I guess every episode is connected now with the cliff hangers. Makes me wonder if they got inspired by how Kamen Rider Gaim handled their episodes. I can't complain for Garo I'm glad they're trying something new. For the CGI I think I'm used to it now due to Yami wo Terasu Mono.

Have to agree with the rian hostage thing. Firstly, she could have easily dodged/fought back with her skills. Secondly, which serious hostage taker would run away when the hostage takes out a weapon, instead of killing them?

I think part of way this episode dragged was because there were so many references to events that presumably take place in the movie, what with Ryume, D Ringo and Yukihime being “introduced” with the assumption that you already had an idea of who they were.

It didn’t help that I kept getting distracted by the background. During the entire scene in Ryume’s sanctuary, I kept wondering how she got up on her throne. Then, I spent most of the big fight looking at the background because it looked familiar. Turns out I stopped there when I went to Odaiba a few years back. Very cool to recognize the background from first-hand experience instead of from seeing it re-used year after year.

The writing was a little sloppy. I agree that might have been able to buy the “we can’t follow the Horror because we lost our ability to track it” if it wasn’t still within sight. I had less trouble with the “hostage” situation, because it seemed like Rian and Ryuuga were just as unable to take it seriously as the audience.

I’m hoping we see more of rooftop guy next episode. I think he’s supposed to be a Priest, so it’s interesting that he has a talking Madou Tool at all, let alone one so uniquely designed.

No next eps preview? That's weird. They probably forgot it since I can't find it on TV-Tokyo's website either.

The hostage situation seemed similar to Kyoryuger. I was expecting Ryuuga to say something like "Why did you take as hostage someone as strong as her?".

EDIT : Apparently, it's because there is no episode next week because one of the guest involved in a hit & run car accident, and they re-shoot some scenes at the last minute. Next week will be a special episode apparently. I've read it somewhere but not on the official website (I can't read Japanese) so I don't know if it's true.

I thought shows were taped before they're put on television and I saw that the show finished filming so that can't be the reason can it?

No, it's official. The guest star is the culprit, and production doesn't want him to be promoted in the show anymore.

I was thinking the other day and.. it's certainly possible. I mean, Toei's changed quite a few things after they filmed it. Decade had that done in spades, there was a Batman-esque map in Gaim that got changed on the dvds, etc.

Agree this episode was rather weak. Mainly the hang-out at D Ringo's. Follow by the non-life threatening hostage situation. Which adds nothing but silliness. Also Ryuuga getting his jacket tied over his head and henshin into a punching bag was silly too. And following the Wizard formula of letting monster go is never a good thing.

At least it has an interesting cliffhanger. Negative red energy going into Ryuuga? Maybe he'll turn evil. And Decade will turn good with the blue energy.

All in all, still a decent ep, hopefully next one will be better.

It's airing as usual this week, I think just like 10 minutes off its normal schedule.

What? Where in that article? It's just talking about guest stars and nothing gossipy at all.

That "Rian, help the people who obviously don't need to be told how to run so I can fight alone" thing is getting old very fast and we've just started.

None, though you do have a rather scantily clad female character strutting around in a bikini and barely-there shorts in one scene.
