In my last post, I asked what to blog about. Devilly suggested toku stuff, so I figured I'd give it a try. First off, GARO.

Go watch this!
Go watch this!
Go watch this show now. It takes toku henshin heroes (superheroes that transform into their costumes) to a whole new level.

GARO is about Kouga Saejima, the Makai Knight known as GARO who is tasked with defending humanity from the demonic creatures called Horrors. Kouga inherited the title and role from his father.  With his talking ring Zaruba and the family butler Gonza, the stern and no-nonsense Kouga uses his sharply-trained abilities and his golden armor to rid the world of horrors. Then he hits a little bump in the road when he meets the artist Kaoruin the first episode during a fight with a Horror. As time goes on, he runs into another Makai Knight of a different area who isn't too fond of the Golden Fang GARO. Stuff goes down. Plenty of fighting. Lots of shiney. It's only 25 episodes and two hour-long specials.

So why should you watch it? Simply put, because this isn't your childhood Power Rangers. This show was marketed towards older teens and adults, and it shows. The writing and plot direction is darker and more mature. Plenty of graphic violence, and some occasional nudity. There's death on an episodic basis. Actual death with actual feelings afterward. The fights are well-done with killer intent, both in and out of the armor. The armor is very intricate and detailed, not like the spandex sentai suits you're used to. The suit CGI in some fights may become an eyesore to some, but it should be fine overall.

Kouga's the one in the middle

And look at Kouga Saejime. He's serious. He's rich. He wears an elaborate white cote. He's a freaken live-action Seto Kaiba.

Plus, there's an opening by JAM Project. If that doesn't make you want to check it out, then there's no hope.

If you have the spare time to check out some episodes of the series.

We just finished the series in our anime club's sentai night. Watched the last two episodes and Beast of the White Night specials. Great night.

So I just learned that Mark Musashi (Kodama, suit actor for Zero and Dan) is going to be at Persacon. Is there a way to have someone autograph an online review?

Haven't heard anything about a second season. I was actually quite content with the ending after Beast of the White Night. I love the show, but I'm fine with it having ran its course.
