Most Tokusatsu shows try to avoid going into anime spinoffs due to licensing problems or just general corporate hostility from the creators. • A notable example of this is the manga Kamen Rider Spiritsdespite many fans wanting it to be an anime, Toei forced the artists and authors to sign a contract not to license it to any animation studio as the Ishinomori estate would not authorize it.

In fire, she gave birth to a son, Leon. I've been a fantasy fan for ages, so I knew was going to like this show. I think there's a second season coming too, so I'll be looking forward to that. Leon Luis and his father, German (pronounced Herman), are Makai knights who travel around looking to kill horrors (demons) that take over people's bodies and turn them into bloodthirsty monsters. Leon's mother was burned at the stake as a witch when he was born in the city of Valiente, and Leon and his father arrive there when Leon is a young man, determined to kill the one who murdered his mother, Mendoza.
This is only a brief precis, and with 24 episodes, this is a long and engaging watch. There is a lot to like about this anime, but its tone is quite dark. There's lots of bloody violence, so little kiddies shouldn't watch it, but anyone over 15 should go watch it ASAP!

Edit Synopsis In the name of the king, the Valiante Kingdom launched hunts to exterminate users of witchcraft. Seventeen years later, their pursuit is still growing in both size and brutality.
Unbeknownst to the citizens, the targets of these witch hunts are the secret protectors of humanity. Known as the Makai Knights and Alchemists, they have a strong will to protect people from Horrors, demons who possess souls plagued by sadness and pain.
One such Makai Knight is 17-year-old Leon Luis who inherits the legendary armor of the Golden Knight Garo from his mother. Though he possesses great power, he struggles to overcome the hatred he bears from his mother's death at the hands of the kingdom.
His father German, known as Zoro the Shadow Cutting Knight, is still training Leon when he is called to garo the animation the upsurge of Horrors in the kingdom's capital.
Although German knows Leon's will is wavering, he decides to bring Leon along to continue his training. As German and Leon head to the capital, the king's amiable son Alfonso San Valiante struggles to find a solution to the growing Horror threat. But before he can do so, he is double-crossed and banished from his own kingdom. To return home, Alfonso sets out to find the help and strength he needs to reclaim the throne.
During his search, he comes across Leon, whose interactions with the prince will forever change both of their fates. [Written by MAL Rewrite] Overall 7 Story 7 Animation 8 Sound 6 Character 8 Enjoyment 7 **SPOILER FREE REVIEW** If you were one of the people who dropped Garo back in 2014 because the plot seemed a little too aimless, this is a PSA: Y’done goofed. What started off as a slightly clumsy and generally directionless action romp with only a mature tone to differentiate it eventually came into its own and emerged as a visually stunning, well written, memorable action-drama complete with strong characters and an emotionally investing plot.
Garo was arguably the best anime that aired this season and it deserves far more attention than it is getting. Synopsis: In a world full of bloodthirsty creatures garo the animation as horrors that terrorize the people, the only ones who can protect them are known as the Makai Knights; a secret organization dedicated to preserving peace throughout the kingdom.
However, little do the people know, the king is being manipulated by his advisor into painting the Makai Knights and alchemists as evil witches in order to eradicate them.
Before you even figure out what Garo is about, one thing will stick out: It knows how to have a mature tone. Too often do anime fall into the trap of confusing maturity with gratuitous blood, guts, nudity, and/or death; but not Garo.
This show deals garo the animation topics of emotional loss, altruism, coming of age, sex, and violence without ever feeling like they are in over their head. This alone is commendable because it opens up a far wider spectrum of potential material to deal with that you won’t be able to see in a typical anime that’s bogged down by fanservice, moe, etc. The biggest complaint that can be made about Garo is that it seems to lack direction or even a real overarching plot, but this only really applies to the first half of the show.
Lots of people lost interest in this anime early on because there wasn’t any specific goal in mind, and garo the animation understandable. However, what emerges from the initial failures of the show is a touching tale about coming of age. It’s complete with some great drama without ever feeling forced, great pacing, and the perfect mix of dialogue and action. It puts you through a great deal of emotional ups and downs, really making you never want to take your eyes off of the screen.
If you can tough it out through those first few episodes, you definitely won’t regret it. While the plot really manages to come into its own, that phenomenon can largely be attributed to the growth and development of the fantastic cast of characters, who are the highlight of Garo in my opinion. Leon, the protagonist, starts off an insufferable, angsty teen. He complains about everything, is never satisfied, and is garo the animation around insufferable. So basically, he’s your average teenager.
What makes him such an effective focal point for the show is how he learns and grows from his experiences; Leon is a dynamic character who ends up becoming supremely likable and even sympathizable. However, Leon is only one of the many interesting, dynamic characters. German, Leon’s “father”, accounts for a lot of the personality in the show. He’s very funny without ever garo the animation his important and rather serious role in the plot, which is not an easy balance to achieve.
There’s also Emma and Alfonso, who each bring their own intriguing subplots to the equation as well. When it comes to characters, Garo overwhelmingly succeeds at fleshing out their respective backstories and motivations. The characters are the reason I was able to stick with the show through the slow start and the payoff ended up being much amazing than I ever thought it could be.
The last thing I’ll mention is how studio MAPPA, who is quickly becoming one of my favorite studios for having the balls to take on risky projects, deserves a lot of praise for the superb animation in Garo. The Makai armor battles are perhaps one of the greatest examples of CGI done right in anime to date, but even more impressive garo the animation me were the detailed landscapes and the fight scenes that didn’t use CGI at all. There is one particular fight in the later half of the anime between two main characters that is easily the fight of the year so far.
The amazing choreography took my breath away; I probably watched that scene five times just for the hell of it. Combine the garo the animation great animation with a… “interesting” soundtrack (watch the OPs and you’ll know what I mean) and you have an anime that delivers in the aspect of presentation. In conclusion, Garo is a well-written drama with a mature tone and a focus on action that is definitely worth watching. The meandering plot eventually finds its way home and delivers a lovely narrative that you will remember for a long time.
I highly recommend Garo to anyone who has a little bit of patience. Here’s to season two! Overall 10 Story 10 Animation 10 Sound 7 Character 9 Enjoyment 10 I will refrain from spoilers in this review Garo, has turned into one of my favorite anime at the moment.
The story follows a young Makai Knight named Leon, and his father German who is also a Makai Knight. Makai Knights have a job to play and that is to kill the "Horrors", which are people who have been possessed by dark spirits, that threaten the every day lives of humans. Leon, the Main Character of the series, is a Makai Knight who still hasn't fully matured. He is learning what it means to truly be a Makai knight, with his father as his teacher. At the same time there is a prince named Alfonso who has been betrayed by someone within his own castle and forced to leave in to avoid death.
The castle is then overtaken and so is the kingdom by a man named Mendoza. Alfonso must then search for the legendary Golden Makai Knight who is destined to save the kingdom, this Knight so happens to be Leon. Thus starts the adventures of Leon and Alfonso in their attempt to retake the kingdom from the hands of Mendoza. This anime is astounding in the pacing it takes to tell the story of these characters. It never moves too slow or too fast it takes its time to tell the story they way they truly want you to experience and to watch the show as it slowly grows into an anime garo the animation watching.
The art in this series is great, I love the approach they take. The characters look rather simple in details, but not simple in a bad way but simple in a pleasant way that makes you admire it for a bit. They also use CG for the armor of the Makai Knights which is great in showing the contrast between humans and Makai Knights, giving them a shine to them and it makes them stand out.
The sound was fine, it wasn't unpleasant or overwhelmingly great. It did it's job in creating the perfect atmosphere for the right times. I believe the characters in the series is what makes this anime so easy to watch for me. You have young, fierce, and naive Leon. The upright and strong Alfonso. The silly and playboy father.
The beautiful and independent Ema and many more characters that make this show great. Even minor characters play heavy roles in this anime, some effect characters for the rest of the series and some play towards a role much bigger than you expected. Each character is there for a reason whether they show up one episode and leave, die in the next episode, or stand with the story the entire way. You will enjoy every character in some way. In terms of enjoyment, this gets an easy 10 in my book.
The series started off kind of slow, I wasn't sure if the anime would turn out to be any good but once I got to episodes 7-12 the plot picks up quickly and you see that the first 6 episodes weren't wasted to fill up the time the show has for 24 episodes.
This show developed beautifully, over the course of these 24 episodes. Overall I give the garo the animation a 10 (Outstanding/Masterpiece). Garo stayed true to the story they had worked to build over 24 episodes, and they really have you get attached to the Main Character, Leon, seeing what he goes through and his duty in the end. This show doesn't pull any stupid strings to give a happy ending, what happened happened and Leona and his allies have to deal with it.
Garo is an idependent story, meaning it didn't come from another source such as Manga/VN/LN, seeing as to how there was a Second Seasons and a Movie planned when this series was at a mere 6 episodes shows that the creator has planned everything well in advance and it looks promising that the second season won't disappoint us at all. Thanks for your time. Overall 8 Story 8 Animation 9 Sound 10 Character 7 Enjoyment 9 If you're talking about the season's most under-appreciated, you're sure to have mentioned Garo somewhere in your conversation.
No one expected an anime series that could hold itself together, much less walk on its own legs. The series does not aspire to be more than what it is nor does it garo the animation itself to its own confines. That is exactly what Garo does - and it does so beautifully. Essentially, Garo is a story about good versus evil.
There is nothing special nor wholly new about it, but that is where the show keeps it tight. The series takes us to a fantastical but horrific world of plagues and demons and the protectors who fight against them.
We follow Leon, a young Makai Knight, struggling to discern between two ethos: a desire for revenge or the duty to protect. Its narrative may be sorely lacking and at times questionable but it does have an ample amount of intrigue and cleverness. All in all, Garo unfolds a pretty decent and solid story - a tale of discovering one's duty and purpose. One of the more striking things about Garo is that it handles the ideals it holds impressively.
While they are thriftily given, the ideals never stray too far. Instead of being pretentious and overzealous, they are humble and, more importantly, relevant to the story, something not all anime series can easily grapple with. In the event of introspection, realization, and declaration, the characters never spew out random, nonsensical lines just to sound cool. They say the just right thing at just the right moment while placing importance in saying with simplicity.
The character development during the most part of the series is focused on Leon. His wasn't a grand, 180 degree turn. It was rather kept simple. The rest have their fair share but it would take only one or two episodes for their garo the animation to be completed. At the very least, these characters weren't used for unwarranted fan service. Though archetypal, each of them remain distinct and memorable.
The art in Garo does garo the animation in portraying the setting. The Knights are ornate and flashy but not overbearing; the Horrors are terribly grotesque. I would say it's all fitting. The music does a superb job in keeping the scenes exciting.
The animation especially in the fight scenes are an outstanding feat. The choreography is neat and elegant, fluid and energetic - something one would not totally expect if they're only seeing Garo at surface level. To sum it all up, Garo comes as a surprise. It may lack the intricacies and refinement that adorn the bigger anime shows but behind all that it is one daring and remarkable effort. Overall 8 Story 7 Animation 6 Sound 7 Character 9 Enjoyment 8 You know there's a sort of irony to the fact that my favorite anime of the past two seasons happens to be the one that nobody likes all that much.
Actually, scratch that, they didn't pay attention to it at all when it aired, which I find kind of weird. I know Rage of Garo the animation looked prettier and had the more bombastic start guys, but that doesn't mean you should just flat-out ignore Mappa's other fantasy show because it had sex, theatrical drama, and CG fights that look too busy at times but were otherwise well-choreographed and.no seriously, why did people ignore this show?
Are anime fans just so used to the medium having to be "kawaii moe uguu" or "porn-star level flamboyant" that the mere notion of "cool" gives them hives? Do we accept that every cartoon from Japan trying to recapture the essence of Tenchi Muyo is the rule now? I thought there was a reason the noitamina timeslot was so loved by a fair amount of people. Well whatever. It's not like I expected much from Garo when I first read about it other than "it's a Mappa show not directed by Watanabe, so I'm hoping it to be good and establish Mappa as an animation studio I can trust".
And like most people going into this, I never watched the original live-action stuff. I did know it had a lot of sex and violence for a tokusatsu series - sometimes to the realm of the absurd - but that's about it. Plus, I read beforehand that the anime would be different from the live-action stuff, which did not sit well with the hardcore tokusatsu fans apparently, but let's not dwell on that.
So I went into the show expecting a solid series and lo and behold, I got what is possibly the "coolest" anime I have ever seen in the medium. It's kind of weird to praise an anime for being "cool" considering how subjective the term can be.
I mean when you get down to it, isn't Jojo cool? Isn't Rage of Bahamut cool? Isn't Gurren Lagann cool? Well you can argue that, but the coolness in this show stands out to me all the more because it has none of the flamboyancies and anime-isms that make up a good chunk of those shows.
Make no mistake, whilst there are some stereotypes like the male tsundere and the aloof-but-well meaning father, this is an anime for people who have hobbies outside of being otaku. It does have its share of light-hearted moments to prevent itself from becoming as impenetrable as Mamoru Oshii when he makes something after reading emo poetry, but you're not going to see people screaming their attack names like a teenager with the mind of a ten-year-old or spouting one-liners that James Bond would find embarrassing.
You're going to see these characters take the silliness of the their CG outfits 100% seriously whilst taking part in battles that are guaranteed to end in blood. But what good is coolness without substance? Well the anime takes place in a fantasy garo the animation where a group of demonic beings called Horrors exist and the only people garo the animation can stop them are a group of armor/magic-users called Makai Knights/Alchemists.
However, seventeen years ago, said group of people were given the Order 66 treatment by the king of Valiante due to manipulation by his treacherous advisor, and now the few that remain are scattered throughout the world, continuing to protect the people whilst trying to avoid getting killed by them.
The series is centered on an angsty kid named Leon, a Makai Knight-in-training who has a hard time living up to the requirements of protecting the people due to his recklessness and his constant anger at his garo the animation being a deadbeat.
This causes him problems when he ends up getting roped into the events garo the animation by said Order 66 conspiracy, and in order to fight it, he must learn how to fully harness his powers with the aid of the Valiante prince named Alfonso, a Makai Alchemist named Ema, and his father/teacher named Hermann.
It's pretty much your typical underdog/dark fantasy story with all the "unexpected for anime, but expected for the genre" twists and turns, so there's not much I can really say about it without spoiling plot points. So why exactly do I like this anime so much if the story is kinda predictable?
Is coolness really enough to elevate the material? Well, according to you Rage of Bahamut fans, yes it is. But what is it about Garo's coolness that I personally find appealing? Well, I've mentioned how I like the execution of its serious tone before, and there's not really much else I can say besides how much I like the Horror designs and how I orgasmed over the fact that one of the villains garo the animation a gun for a leg. The show just fulfills what I want from anime in general in terms of tone, episodic-storytelling, character interactions, good action, and high drama, and that's not something I can really rationalize on paper.
It's obviously not perfect - the villains aren't that great, one or two of the episodic stories are kind of phoned in, and the animation can be really crappy at times.
I know Bahamut needed the budget more since its writing is more simplistic and the episodes when said production took a dive were kind of a chore to sit through, but I'm still going to complain about the characters' faces looking like they got pressed with a sledgehammer when I see it. But those are niggling doubts in terms of everything else this show gets right. It's just really great epic drama about heroes and the sacrifices they must make in terms of their occupation.
I like the way it's paced in terms of its usage of the monster-of-the-week format to established plot points. I like the way it's told without ever getting too corny with its cliches. I even like when the atmosphere gets a little metal - and I usually point my shotgun at that genre when it so much as breathe the same air I do.
But most of all, I just like garo the animation it's so fucking cool in a way Jojo can only dream of being. In a medium burdened with anime-isms ruining what could have been decent stories, Garo came out of nowhere and surprised me more than the news that Jon Stewart was retiring from the Daily Show, and that is no small feat given how shocking said news was to me when I saw that episode.
Garo is obviously not for everyone - I mean people wouldn't have ignored it like they have if it was. However, I had a lot of fun watching this show, I am convinced that it is the best show of its season (shut up *you know what anime I'm referring to* fans) and I am eagerly looking forward to the sequel series and movie.whenever those come out. Hopefully it's soon. I mean I'm in no hurry, but given how sequels that take a long to come out usually turn out (looking at you, Durarara!!x2), I think I'd like more Garo sooner rather than later.
