[22:06] <~takenoko> I heard konami is back in the games thing because of new gambling laws restricting their other pursuits, which is kind of funny
[22:06] <~takenoko> *new gambling laws in japan
[22:15] <|discord|`> <Verus> yeah the gov cracked down on pachinko
[22:20] <|discord|`> <Lunagel> Did they? How so?
[22:23] <|discord|`> <Verus> ... 5269486d4a
[22:23] <|discord|`> <Verus> this was all pre-covid stuff
[22:25] <|discord|`> <Lunagel> Huh
[22:26] <|discord|`> <Lunagel> That explains why that one parlor near me closed down in 2019
[22:26] <|discord|`> <Verus> Just realized the garo pachinko is in that thumbnail haha
[22:27] <~takenoko> is that why garo isn't being made anymore? no more pachinko sponsors ?
[22:27] <|discord|`> <Lunagel> It would fit the timeline
[22:27] <|discord|`> <Verus> Oh my god is the lever for the garo machine the sword
[22:27] <~takenoko> sounds like a good crackpot toku conspiracy to me
[22:27] <|discord|`> <Verus> I'm cackling
[22:28] <|discord|`> <Lunagel> Yes
[22:28] <|discord|`> <Lunagel> Get
[22:28] <|discord|`> <Lunagel> Sansei
[22:28] <|discord|`> <Lunagel> Oh yeah
[22:28] <|discord|`> <Lunagel> Today
[22:28] <|discord|`> <Lunagel> Tomorrow
[22:29] <|discord|`> <Lunagel> Sansei
[22:29] <~takenoko> I love that commercial, it's so hypnotic
[22:29] <|discord|`> <Lunagel> Love you Mr. Sansei

So the more stringent laws were enacted February 2018, and the last Garo project, Versus Road, came out in April 2020. Assuming that was already in pre-production, it's possible the new laws killed any new Garo tv show.
