Garo: Crimson Moon (Season two of the Garo series)



Quote:
Producer Masao Maruyama announced at animation studio MAPPA's Otakon panel on Friday that the the second Garo: Honoo no Kokuin television anime series is slated for this October. Unlike the first Garo anime, this series will be a jidaigeki (period drama) set in the Heian period. It will have a female protagonist.
The second season of Garo is coming for Fall 2015. We are also getting a female main character as part of the story.

Tagline....
"A golden wolf that howls at the darkness of the Heian Era."

I've read some reports listing the aforementioned female character as a female version of Abe no Seimei, so I think Raikou is the male MC and the current Garo while Seimei is the major female character that was mentioned.

Also, additional staff:

Garo: Guren no Tsuki Streams 'Seimei' Teaser, Reveals Additional Staff

- Director: Atsushi Wakabayashi (Guin Saga director, Rage of Bahamut Genesis episode director)

- Story Editor: Shou Aikawa (Fullmetal Alchemist, EUREKA SEVEN AO script, story editor)

- Screenplay: Toshiki Inoue (Ushio & Tora series composition), Takawo Yoshioka (Your Lie in April, High School DxD BorN series composition), Seishi Minakami (A Certain Scientific Railgun S series composition), Masaki Wachi (Kingdom script), Shinichi Inotsume (Gangsta. series composition), Shigeru Murakoshi (Knights of Sidonia screenplay, Garo script)

Aikawa as a story editor on Garo? This should be fun...hopefully .

Episode 1:

Pretty good episode. I feel like this could be a classic fantasy as there's already a decent amount with the fantasy setting. Not sure how I feel about Seimei yet but I think she could be an interesting character. Given the 2-cour status of the show, I think there's a lot that this season can explore with its characters.

The animation and action has good amount of effort put into it..

I really want to know more about Raikou though.
He has some funny chemistry with that Kinotoki kid. The Horrors in this season looks just as dangerous as the previous.

So if i didn't misunderstand anything Raikou can't use the Garo armor without Seimei. And i'm kinda displease with how they change the Garoken blade to a Katana.

As someone who discovered the franchise with the first season, color me very very disappointed by this first episode.

Frankly, the atmosphere and setup for this season fell so flat that I couldn't really get interested by any character whatsoever.
I don't really mind the change of setting, but the protagonists feel so... I dunno, mismatched and random? Even without any comparison with Leon and the other characters from the S1, there isn't any oppressive atmosphere or anything of such kind.

Episode 1 wasn't as explosive as I'd expected, but this was pretty good in its own way. I really like the art, animation's fine, the nice soundtrack... I'm not really sold on Raikou's voice, but I hope he'll improve.

Seimei and Raikou are interesting - it doesn't seem like they're in a relationship but even so they're kind of like what Ema and Leon would've been if they had actually became a couple. (Too bad that it seems Seimei is supposed to be around the same age as Raikou.)

As for the "Heian era", though... Come on, guys, glasses and konpeito? You're not even trying. (Sure, S1 had anachronistic things, too, but that was random "Middle Ages Europe wherever whenever".)

I was missing Leon during every scene Raikou was in, while Semie comes off as an expy of Emma.

Not a bad first episode, even with Seimei goofing around in the majority of the episode, curious to see why Rakiou's can't actived his armor on his own, guessing it have to be something to do with his bloodline.

While not a bad episode it didn't have the impact of the first episode of the first (at least for me) series, the op and ed aren't as memorable either, also did someone forget to polish the armor or something? it looks cool and all but where's the shine?
