Alt Title - Buy the Bikuu Movie on Blu-ray Promotion Part 2

I'll admit it, I had my doubts about this episode. The boy's pretty annoying. The jokes fell flat (gay jokes and punching women, really?). But at least the story as kind of novel. One of the strong points of Retsuden is that it breaks the usual Garo format of "Horror does something, then a Makai Knight goes out and dispatches it." I think that's why a lot of Garo episodes focus more on the Horror than the Knights themselves.

But once the kid encounters the Horror, it got pretty good for me. I liked his tenacity. And I was totally surprised to see Raiga. I wasn't expecting to see any of the main knights show up in this series (I figured Ryuuga was an exception since he's outside the normal continuity). So maybe we'll see Kouga, Zero, or some other main series heroes at some point?

Also the action scenes were pretty fun.

I wasnt impressed with the 4th walling for most of the first half, kinda annoyed me at times cause it was just vast amounts of dialog and not much else.

2nd half was far better, I give the kid credit for taking on the horror and getting his ass kicked. I was surprised to see Raiga appear. At least we get a small amount of Garo fighting in this series. Just shows that they can change it up quite a bit week to week.

I just hope we dont get another 4th walling episode for a while.

I was resigned to being slightly bored with the episode - Daichi was cute and presumably plays a big role in the Bikuu movie, but without having seen that movie I didn’t care as much about his antics. I was amused by the different encounters Daichi had in order to make eye contact with people. The exchange between him and the litterbug (Why’d you dodge? It’d hurt if you hit me.) was my favorite.

But since Bikuu had a brief cameo,I was shocked when Raiga popped up during the Horror fight. And Zaruba! Never forget Zaruba. It was also nice to see the Garo armor in action. I figured Raiga would have the third charm, but I wasn't expecting Bikuu to have incorporated him into the test as much as she did. It mad for a sweet teaching moment.

I thought it interesting that presumably Gonza was the person Daichi was talking to the whole episode. It made him feel more like a part of the action.

For a Horror that is known for seducing men, her technique was pretty pathetic. It boiled down to asking men if they loved her before she tried to eat them.

Just wanted to point out the guest stars this time are Yukino played by Aono Kaede and Hikaru played by Morimoto Ryoji. It's Ghost in the Shell meets Blade.

Not sure exactly why, but this one didn't resonate with me. I couldn't get interested in Daichi's story at all, and I wonder how much of that was attributed to having a new character after eight episodes of checking in on the well known characters. Honestly, I nearly forgot about Daichi once Raiga showed up.

Really liked this episode, and I am very impressed but this Daichi kid. He did his own stunts very well.

And BTW, there's no 4th wall breaking. They make it look like there's, but at the end we see that's not the case.

Hajime-san!!!! Haven't seen you for a decade! Why weren't you able to reprise your role as Chalice in any of the past Super Hero Taisen movies???

Anyways, this episode started off boring but it did pick up once Hajime and that girl appeared on screen. She was cute and of course makes sense to be the Horror. I almost forgot about Daichi and I seriously thought he was a new character. But once Raiga showed up to help battle the Horror, I remember who he is now. Not a bad episode and appreciated the Bikuu cameo appearance.

contrary to many opinion in here, i like the Daichi kid. i also do like monologue & the 4th wall breaking type in here. coz ya for me who haven't watch bikuu movie, i do think it's important for a "new" chara like him to explain himself, and the 4th wall does as good thing for it.
His chara is a very contrass chara of Bikuu & yet these 2 later on gonna be The Dark Slasher in Garo series. so it's a good future variation i think. looking forward to see him.
i'm surprised he's the same actor who played new Inazuman in Fourze movie thou.

my opinion perhaps biassed coz to be honest, Garo Hana & Guren no Tsuki are 2 my least favourite.

I will give it a 4... simple but cool episode and this is probably the only side story that we will see for Raiga.

I was going to mention that I had immediately noticed the actor for Daichi, who played Inazuman in one of the Kamen Rider Fourze movies and Super Hero Taisen Z (although the actor wasn't present), but someone had already beaten me to it, lol. I knew GARO had to appear in one of these last episodes since it's coming to an end. I wanted Kouga to show up but they're most likely saving him for the finale if anything. Whoever directed that transformation battle was probably the same person who did the Yami wo Terasu Mono CGI 'cause that was pretty terrible as always. And they make it seem like Daichi will indeed appear again in an upcoming series.

Good episode. Picked up towards the end of course with GARO making an appearance.
