for me storywise & character development, Honoou no Kokuin might be THE BEST among all Garo series.
Lara is a very important character in Leon development, at creates the whole new character of Leon & his redemption.
for Alfonso as well, his story also quite good. so does for his teacher, Raphael is an interesting character.
i like almost all characterin here, good or bad. they create it in a very good way.
i forget the name of the enemy, but he's quite ok. However, the maid that help her, her story &development is way much better.
emma guzman is quite interesting as well.
in the attempt to define Hero & Protector thing, this series really do it in a very good way & a bit dark/harsh i think. But hey, isn't Garo is an adult Tokusatsu show that aim the more mature target market?? i think the scale of the story & events for all chara quite represent the mature thing
