"Where there is light, shadows lurk and fear reigns... yet by the blade of Knights, mankind was given hope..."—Ward Sexton
GARO focuses on the life of Kouga Saejima, who assumed the title of Makai Knight to protect humanity against dark demonic manifestations called "Horrors." In his quest to purge them, he encounters a young girl named Kaoru whom he saved from a Horror, but was stained with its demonic blood. As a rule, those that been stained by the blood of a Horror shall be cut down, or else they will die painfully in approximately 100 days. Kouga had mercy upon her and tries to find a way to purify her before her remaining time expires. Thus, the series focuses on Kouga's developing relationship with Kaoru and his stand in protecting humanity after the wishes of his father, who was his predecessor with the title of GARO. The series was created and chief directed by Keita Amemiya (Kamen Rider ZO, Zeiram). It is directed by Makoto Yokoyama (Power Rangers) and Kengo Kaji (Uzumaki).
The GARO Opening:
Scene From Garo:
OMG! This is something you would never see me normally watch in my lifetime. I thought I'd find a show that myself and my older two boys would like. Well, they got bored because it was too "lovey" and left me to watch it myself. I LOVED IT!
This show was like a cross between Power Rangers and some romantic sci/fi with some topless nudity! The drama had a great premise. The show was never boing in any way, shape, or form. I mean, come on, you can't help loving the karate moves of Kouga and Rei. Between the two, *sigh*, left me in a hot sweat! Then the love story between Kaoru and Kouga, it progressed so smoothly. You couldn't help but love the way Kouga grew to eventually love her even though he never said the words. I think the most he said to her was "I need you." At the end of the special, well.....I can't say but I was looking for a little physical action. Ya know a kiss wouldn't have hurt. I hope they make another season. That would be good. Ah, but that is usually me dreaming.
If you aren't afraid to give it a try...go for it. You'll be pleasantly surprised. Guys and gals, both, will love this because you all get what you want.
First saw him in RH Plus. I really loved that show. So different but more for the preteen, idol set. Totally different genre instead of the same old, same old.
He doesn't have the "classic" hottie look but his personality makes you melt with the character he plays. Okay the stunts turned me on quick. LOL! He grew on me...now I'm looking for more stuff from this cutie!!
