Loved this first episode. The characters were novel, no punches were pulled and oh how I enjoyed when Seimei laughed in the face of the ladykiller. The music was great--glad they kept Spanish guitars even though this one isn't in Spain.

Fully on board with this right out of the gate.

Great first episode, I love Seimei. She is beautiful and witty, everything a great female protagonist should be. The cgi looks better than it did last season as well. It just fits better with the rest of the animation style. In the first season whenever they transformed it looked like they were from totally diff show, a cgi knight fighting a regular animated monster. I can't remember, in the first season did they ever touch on the rings turning to stone?

Turns out I really was just paranoid and Funimation picked it up. Odd that didn't mention it when they were doing their simulcasts announcements.

First episode was pretty good. Seimei is my favorite character so far, but I guess the other two can grow on me.

Episode 2


Hmm it was okay for a standalone episode although I think the thing about Raikou's father could be a recurring plot. Why do I have a feeling that he might be alive?

I almost pitied Hisayori for a moment this episode until the revelation came at the end.

Planting lots of little plot seeds in this episode.

That guy with the dude chasing after Seimei who had the same exact hair and skin color as her is sort of suspicious. Wonder if he's her brother or something?

Raikou empathizing with the villain of the week and then being called a curse child like the scar face dude is interesting. Should hopefully see some interesting character developement and exploration with him. And then you have his backstory to add to it.

How old is Kintoki? He looks like a kid, but looked exactly the same when they found a younger looking Raikou.

And we got the trio of fox ladies instead of Garm in the watchdog center. Was actually looking forward to having Garm show up again, but the fox ladies seem to have the same general attitude Garm had.

GARO CRIMSON MOON EP 2/ "Tied Sword "

This got interesting fast ! Raikou and Seimei take an apprentice assigned by the Watchdog Center under their wing. Apparently the apprentice is the Son Of the Original Golden Knight ! But his father lost his life from Horrors and was taken over by them However Seimei rescued Raikou at that time and had the Sword and Ring . So the Apprentice and Raukou let the Sword decicde where it belongs ! It lunges at Raikou who stops it with his bare hands and defeats the horror ! I like Seimei as she is quite sassy!

Episode 3

So we find out more Seimei including her origins.

Honestly, I think the show is overemphasizing her presence. There's more info dump about some of this series' themes like with the curses, hatred, demons, etc. It feels a bit different tbh despite the theme of Makai Knights being protectors against Horrors. At least Seimei has some decent chemistry with the others.

I feel like Seimei is one of the few people who can keep Raikou under control.

Well, there were a few more unintentionally comical moments than expected considering the last series. The crowd of people getting hit like bowling pins and then the kid blasting off again sort of took me out of the show.
So far liking the previous series better.

Seimei is like if you combined Emma and German. XD

Episode 3

Last time, Raikou's origins were revealed, and now it's Seimei's story that gets explained. Her real name is Abe Kiyome, and there's a political conflict going on with curses being cast to set things in motion. It turns out that this Douman guy got captured on purpose so that he could evoke his biggest curse. But of course, Raikou can't be stopped as long as Seimei undoes the seal. Pretty solid that was.

Seimei was looking sexy this episode she had a super hero outfit and was doing a lot of boob hugging. When things go down she is still bad ass even when whinning or joking she gets the job done

Episode 4

Is this another one of those filler episodes? Felt like it to me unless Kaguya returns in the season and somehow has connections to the overall premise or themes of the season.

Meh, this episode was bad.

I didn't feel a strong attachment between Kaguya or Raikou at all. And compared to the first season, the Horror designs looks really flat.


Edit: okay, I noticed her in the ED theme song. Maybe she will be a regular/supporting character.

but I liked how the Garo: Honoo no Kokuin was but this looks rather boring but better quality is it just like that?


was way more "elegant" in some ways I guess.
