Just finished watching the movie Garo Red Requiem. Yes, as you can guess by the name it has to do with
the same Garo I’ve posted before. (check it out)
I’ve actually been eagerly awaiting this movie for some time. Or rather anything that has to do with Garo , was it worth my time? Let’s find out shall we?
Was it worth the wait?
Hard question. While I have waited for it since it was announced in 2009, I can’t say my life has revolved round it. Hehe. I’d probably wait longer for something Garo related to be honest.
Was if good?
Oh, yes! I liked it very much it felt like it should. Like a longer episode from the show. The story and the main Horror (the monsters in Garo’s universe) Lord Karma, where a bit on the “meh” side. At least most of the movie, Lord Karma and Garo had a pretty sweet fight near the end of the movie. And I guess that’s one of the things I’m a tad disappointed with when it comes to Red Requiem. There where a bit to many dull moments, like most movies. But I wish they would have used it better, sure they give us some back story on the characters. But I would liked to have them go deeper into it, I don’t really know… I tend to have these feeling just about every movie, probably because I want to fully “feel” the world they’ve built. Or something like that.
If you like Garo watch it! The action and fighting are top notch! And just as over the top like it was in the Garo TV-show. I missed some old characters like Zero, well mostly Zero actually. At least they could have implied to something about him, I like stuff like that. So now the waiting begins anew. For the next special Dark Knight Gaiden: Kiba hopefully we’ll get to see everything from the start regarding Kiba. From his early days as a good guy and his trip to the darkness. And let’s not forget the sequel to the first Garo TV-show, Garo Makai Battle Chronicle. No information on that yet, but I’m eagerly awaiting it.
Can’t wait until we get Dark Knight Gaiden! I want to see more of Kiba!

As some people might have guessed or grasped by now, I’m a fan of Tokusatsu shows. You know, Japanese live action shows with Super Heroes. Think Power Rangers and you are close, or you’ll get the gist of it.
And there was this one particular tokusatsu show that caught my attention and it was Garo. Also known as Ogon Kishi Garo or Golden Knight Garo. I’ll post something about the series as soon as I’ve rewatched and refreshed my memory of it. Well the big news is that the show is finally getting a second season! I’ve been waiting since 2006 for this! So I’m really hyped about this. For now its just called Garo 2, but its not the only thing coming. There will be a V-cinema I think they called it? That would be called Kiba The Dark Knight Gaiden.
Can’t wait to get more information or release date of this series, this how is definitely right up my alley. Love it. And here is a trailer for Kiba The Dark Knight, if you don’t like that or enjoy some of it. This series is probably nothing for you.
