Garo -Gold Storm- Shou 08 released

That was a decent ep. Good character interactions. The hero versus hero fighting felt more believable in this episode for some reason. The dialogue also felt really well written. There were even some funny lines and attempt at jokes.

The actual hand to hand stuff between Rian and Gald had some weak moments, but totally acceptable. I didn't like the 2's versus 3's spell but that's okay.

We should have Prayers the music video done by the time this releases, so please enjoy that as well!

Oh man, that line about delivering the Horror to the Makai in 30 minutes or less made me literally facepalm.

Good episode, I guess. Gald (no one in-universe knows him name yet, do they?) keeps managing to straddle the line between irritating and interesting. At times I want to smack him like Rian did, but there’s still a lot about him - and now his mysterious village - that I want to know about.

And we’re back to our main villains lounging about in their apartment. I guess I prefer that over not seeing them at all or having them do stupid stuff, but it’s hard not to feel like a let-down after the fantastic action last episode.

Cool episode. I like this makai priest. As Phurricane says, he is irritating, but in a good way. But that battle of numbers was really silly.

BTW, what the heck is happening with the soundtrack of this season? Not only they keep repeating tracks from previous seasons and showing just a few new, the use of them is horrible.

When Ryuga recovered his gold bright in Ywtm, they put a really good track and they never used it again, it was something special. But in this season that tracks has been overused over and over and in the most innapropiate situations, like in this episode with that light. That scene wasn't epic or emotional at all, don't you have another music that suits it better?

EDIT: It is curious that, in a timeline where madou rings are a thing of the past, Gald, being a makai priest, has a device that is just like one of them.

This was a decent enough episode. The Horror was rather filler. But I think so far a lot of the Horror this season are not memorable. They lack a story of their own. But Gald adds some mystery to the series. Along with Akizuki. Looking forward to seeing more of their story as the series progress.

Rian taking Gald to school was interesting. D.Ringo and his lady is still weird to me.

Delivery in 30 minutes or less line is best line.

So glad that some random villager (was it Gald? I didn't really catch that) decided to sell this one random thing that can summon Gald that Rian just happened to know how to use.

It was most likely picked off the corpse of a villager and sold to D Ringo. Since the guy mostly deals in stolen goods (at least that's the implication for most his stuff)

After watching this, I can't help but think of GARO X Sesame Street after the number fight.

You might didn't notice. YWTM Amemiya wasn't directing. This season Amemiya Directing the whole episodes.. Fact he was creator for Garo. But YWTM wasn't his worked.

Just to clarify, Amemiya only directed episode one so far (and that was with someone else).

Yes I know about Amemiya's involvement, but... what does it have to do with anything I said in my message?

There's nothing to suggest that Ryuuga couldn't have dodge it without Gald's help. It was more like Gald decided to give Ryuuga an assist all on his own. Ryuuga was surprised by Gald's help when it happened since he didn't expect him to help at all.

It was a decent episode indeed and enjoyed watching it. Even though there is a little dull moment, the rest of the episode covers this week's story completely.

All music scores from YWTM didn't meet Amemiya taste.
So old BGM used from previous seasons to now
