So this season of Garo is a completely different story and not a sequel seeing that this season is set in Japan instead of Spain. Knowing that, I might give it a look seeing that I didn't have enough time to watch the first season.

It is a woman. Supposed to be a female version of Abe no Seimei.

GARO is nothing if not unconventional. 'Sides, I remember this poster for the first one where the focal point was the sword:



Ladies can't be Makai knights so that guy in the foreground is probably one, I'm guessing.

And here I was trying to decide if the person front and center had boobs or not.

Ha. Well, that person could also be a girl for all I know. But the purple-clad person is almost certainly the feminized Abe no Seimei because that's the kind of Heian onmyoji outfit he's almost always depicted as wearing complete with pointy hat.





Except in Drifters where he wears a beret because that's how they do:

Episode 1

Basic rule of thumb: never attack a woman for the sake of carving a sculpture. Junkei did that, and he fell right into Seimei's trap. He proved to be quite an adversary, but he's nothing Raikou in his golden armor can't handle. And then comes that menace at the end with a sign of ominous things to come. That was a solid start there, and seeing that I didn't finish the first season (which is not required to watch this) that it certainly gets me back into the the thick of things seeing what Garo was all about.

Just in case anyone is curious, the season 2 is officially called "Garo: Guren no Tsuki" also known as "Garo: Crimson Moon"

As for the first episode....
I thought it was dark and exactly what's to be expected from the Garo franchise. Somehow, I liked this episode compared to the first season's previous episode.

We got a main female protagonist in a new setting. Seems like none of the main characters from the previous season returns so it's safe to say that you can watch it without knowledge of the first season. Also liked the fact that they are keeping it less CGI (although the Makai armor still has that) with the action by making it looks more fluid. I hope we learn more about the main characters though especially Seimei and Raikou :D

Oh and I love the OST already for this season. CD release when?
