Oh, and now that the series is over, please vote in the series review thread and maybe leave some generic thoughts on the series in general. Given how high the feedback was for this series, it'd be nice to generate a discussion on what worked and why people thought this series was as successful as it was.

Great finale to a great series. Not perfect but great - wish we could've had more!

And maybe I'm missing something here but my question is this: if the bartender guy could heal Rekka with seemingly no problem, why couldn't he have done the same for Kagome?

I really thought Rekka is going to die... *sigh of relief*
I enjoyed the series very much although the ending was not something I expected...

Thanks a lot for subbing another great series guys!

They fooled us very well. At the beginning of the episode they gave us false hope after they shown us that the one that hurted Rekka was not the real Alice and that Alice was inside the dragon. After that Alice realized her mistakes and called for Rei but in the end she dies anyway in Rei's arms and now we know why Alice is not around in the future when Rei trained Raiga... just amazing... they made me doubt so many times during this show and it was not until Alice became light and disappeared that I lose hope that she was going to be Rei's Waifu.

Edel was really out of the place in this episode and was probably the only bad thing about the episode.

The wolf-dragon model kit from Bandai is gonna be so sick! and so expensive too... Rei used like 3 forms in this episode just for kit sales purposes :p.

Definitely a clear 5 and the second best Garo show in the series after Makai Senki. I really hope for a character like Crow to get a series like this one in the future.

There is no more Garo until July now when we are going to get a third anime series. I'm not positive about it because the first 2 series were so bad and I didn't even finished the second one.

I don't think that was Edel, it was Loop formed around some psychic leftovers.

It's very great enough, though the fight was quite long that makes not enough closure to the series.. Wanting more than what we're getting, at least one reference to makai no hana, but no...

Bye Alice, you definitely will be missed T_T


Soooo, what now for Garo ???

Ah thank you.., I forgot about those, Jinga's and Raiga's movies if I'm not mistaken, right ??

Unfortunately, previous Garo animes were never exactly great imo, so not hoping much from it..

Many thanks for including Location Tour Teaser. I know Aoshima Kokoro (Alice) is 17 and all, but.......I can't stop looking at her hot legs.

I was surprised when they said they filmed it 10 months ago. (Garo stuff seems like it takes about a year to get out? Must be all that CGI work?)

So I guess she was 16 when they were actually filming? So Fujita Ray was like 27 when filming?

I felt the last episode was a little anticlimactic. It seems the producers tried to be different for the sake of being different and their efforts didn't really have the desired impact.

1) The alice clone at the start of the episode. Her appearance at the end of the last episode had me excited, because I thought she was going to transform into the dragon knight and have a 1-on-1 with Rei, but she turned out to be a clone rather than the real deal, and was killed after a fairly short and unsatisfying fight. I really didn't see the point.

This begs the question - is Edel the same? I had always assumed he gained his powers after "merging" with the dragon the same way Alice did. Was he simply a clone, and the real Edel is trapped somewhere in the original dragon?

2) What's the whole deal with Alice entering the dragon and merging with it? Is she a prisoner? Does her thoughts influence the actions of the dragon? Does she have any control over the dragon? Seems like a rather stupid thing to do if there is no benefit.

It's interesting that the timer on the armour was enforced so stringently in every episode. I guess I understand why the other shows in the series never did so - 99 seconds doesn't always allow for a drawn-out and well-choreographed fight.

A nice series overall. I think 13 is the magic number. Doesn't feel as rushed as a movie, you still have plenty of room for character development and interaction, and you don't get pointless filler and needlessly drawn-out fights just to stretch the series out to 24-25 episodes.

The implication from the dialogue in the last episode is that Alice combining with the dragon is what gives it its wings. It was land bound before.
