As much as this is the CW teen drama episode of Garo, I actually really liked it. Haruna's really not a bad character, since she's got more going on for her than just "I'm a stoic knight" or "I'm a one-dimensional Makai Priest". I thought the pretty boy's acting was kind of wooden, but that's fine. As long as he looks good.

Haruna must have zero spatial awareness to run into that telescope guy. Did she move into his way on purpose, because how does someone do that?

And then Akizuki came in, and the episode became glorious. I love that stupid guy, I think it's the funniest thing. I was thinking "Man, that costume must stick out in this modern context" and then he tries to enter the school in his usual garb. So good.

The actual battle stuff was fine. The Horror design was good. I'm a bit confused as to why they had a female version of the Horror to begin with. It seems like the story would have been fine if told with just the janitor and the jerk kid. Having the woman to begin with is sort of a tipoff that the Horror is a shapeshifter. Maybe that was the intention. I bet the janitor is a stunt actor.

Haruna picking up the charm and then turning it over was an amazing dramatic turn. Poor Haruna, looks like pretty boy's not your boyfriend after all. All in all, a fun episode that breaks the usual Garo formula, while still integrating it in a pleasing manner. 5/5.

Needed more Daigo to be more entertaining. Heck a story dedicated to him would be good

That was a very sweet episode. I’m not fond of Daigo, actually, but I like the way they fleshed out Haruna’s character.

The combination of the high school astronomy club and Miki being dedicated to studying the constellations because she wanted to be an astronomer really gave me a Fourze vibe.

When Daigo says that "a pen is a student's life etc etc" I actually did laugh. He gives the same lecture to everyone does he. And I like his berserker fighting style. No need to dodge, just go straight at it.

I couldn't remember who Haruna was, until she changed back to the Makai Priest garb. She's the one that talks through the dolls in Gold Storm Shou.

I'm surprised they didn't wipe that boy's memory though.

The episode was meh for me, but the pen/sword line was very funny, one of the funniest Garo lines for me.

The horror design was cool too. If I am correct, this is the first physical suit they use in Retsuden for a new horror (not the standar ones).

Next episode seems to be a two parter again.

give 4/5 for this one.
good dramatic story i guess. the moment haruna flip the charm is kinda sad. but anyway, she managed it quite well.

it's good that retsuden can develop her chara in a good way. she's not that interesting in GS-Shou for me. but in here, the theme of choice,youth, dreams suits well.

i do agree with PHurricane . this episodes really reminds me of FOURZE!!

@yaiba = i guess since haruna is no longer/ not a strong makai priest, she can't/dunno the technique of erasing people memory.

Daigo entering the school is a very dark comedy btw, lol.

btw,the TRICERATOPS Horror is good in design i guess. THUMBS UP!!

The only thing missing in this episode is Fourze. They did the school plot well.

Daigo is always good. Episode was kind of average otherwise.
