It was a good episode, but probably the weakest "big battle on the first half" episode of the whole franchise. If we compare this with Kouga vs Rei, Kouga vs Sigma, Ryuga Takeru and Aguri vs Sonshi and Raiga vs Zaji, it definitely loses.

All of them better than this one. It's also a shame that, having both suits, they did the battle mostly CGI. It also happened with the battles aforementioned, but they normally showed us physical suits (except for Ywtm, of course) so I feel it was a lost opportunity.

O.o huh... so...

I'm not 100% sure on this but isn't there only one Knight where the wearers all have the -ga end to their name?
Calling it now, Saejima Jinga.

So, this show is my first experience with Garo after like a decade (lol no pun intended) of sticking to Kamen Rider. I must say, I'm loving this more than I'd thought. I like how it focuses a lot on out-of-suit action and it's quite reminiscent of the action shows of my youth (I kinda miss those).

One of the things that REALLY roped me in was Masahiro Inoue's performance though. You can tell he's having fun with it too.

As a first timer to the franchise, the first episode did a REALLY good job of getting me up to speed on what's up with the world of Garo without feeling like I'm being force-fed a lot of exposition all at once. Any concepts not explained in the first episode also seem to be pretty well explained when they become relevant (such as how a human becomes a horror). Also pretty important to note is that they've tried, whenever possible at least, to avoid whole "as you know" speeches where people explain stuff they already know to eachother. Most of the time the explanations felt pretty natural.

I really hope the sword versions of the daggers will make another appearance in the future. They looked very cool but didn't get enough screen time.

I like this version of a Horror/Armour crossover. When it was shown last episode I even thought that the Horror looked very knight like.
