Kouga is a rich man who lives in a mansion, so it makes sense he has a dark basement area with swinging pendulums.

Rei is a bum who hangs out at a bar. Where the hell does he go to train?

I mean, the first time I saw that sequence, I was sure that it was all in Rei's mind...

How does that even work?

Then again, this is a series where you can play chess and bet your life force.

I cound say for the pendulums that he could have visited Raiga and Gonza at some point and trained there

Yeah, looking at it again, it really looks like he's literally just doing mental training. You see the pendulum sequence in his swords and he closes his eyes again right after. It's like a child looking into a snow globe really.

It is not so weird. Remember Raiga and Biku had a completely mental fight.

Alice confirmed as the waifu with this episode. Just get this done and give us Zero's successor/son series next just like you did with Raiga :p.

Nice episode. Another 5.

The moments between Rei and Alice was sweet. I love the direction of the ep and how it was dialogue driven.

The writing was good too. Awesome caterpillar design.

I love this mini series of Garo, remind me a lot of the first two seasons. Probably the pararel of Kouga/Kaoru with Rei/Alice. We're also given the perspective of normal person (Kaoru/Alice). Kaoru and Alice are also the oddball who see the world from their own perspective. Last, it has quite an improvement from the last couple of years of Garo, probably due to they had more time to prepare because of the re-airing...

Not going to add much, this episode is good and lovely. Isn't the horror's actress also played the Bang Bang girl (forget the name) in Kyoryuger movie?

rei & alice convo is a great one. i do like it much about how they open up, act & share their thoughts and perspective.
agree with above, Alice show a perspective of a normal people about the whole Makai thing.
Misaki momose is good in here as well, although i prefer her when she try to be an assasin for Bikuu, Erica of something i guess, i forget her name sorry.

the baby dragon also quite interesting. wonder what it would evolve in the next 5weeks. will Alice also become Mother of The Dragons like Daenerys in GOT???

and yes in these 8 episodes, it seems like the best toku garo series in recent years.
