    The latest Garo stage play has been announced. It will also be called "Kami no Kiba" but will use different characters that translate as "wake up". It will star Masahiro Inoue in his role of Jinga from the TV shows.

    So back on August 13th, the company that produced the two Garo anime, Tohokushinsha Film Corp, released a trailer for an anime called 'Vanishing Line'. It was done so low key and without fanfare that nobody really paid any attention, and it's taken almost a month for someone to spot that the title card in the trailer actually says 'GARO: Vanishing Line'!

    So yeah, apparently the third Garo anime is starting on October 6th and nobody even noticed. :oops:


    Press 'CC' to activate the optional English subtitles.
    A summary has been kindly provided by Tom Constantine on The Tokusatsu Network.

    "Set in the giant city of Russell, the man with the title of GARO, Makai Knight Sword, protects the city from Horrors that possess humans, fighting in secret. One day while annihilating a Horror, Sword encounters the keyword Eldorad. Believing it to be a large plot of the Horrors, not just eliminating Horrors, he begins an investigation to find the meaning behind it. While doing so, he comes across girl named Sophie. Sophie is looking into the word Eldorad as it was the last message from her brother who went missing. Sophie has lost her brother and Sword lost his younger sister in the past. The word Eldorad pulls them together and they feel an unseeable bond between them, leading them to working together. With those feelings connected, their journey begins."

    So this one seems to have ditched the historical aspects of the previous two seasons. I don't know how to feel about a big Zaruba bike, but hopefully it will be better than the second Garo anime and more like the great first one.

    I'll admit seeing Zaruba as a bike is a little weird but it looks like it could be a good one

    Wait, which guy is Garo again? The muscle head or the sniper. Somehow it hard to imagine Garo punch or shoot horror. By the way, that Zaruba bike is so cool.

    The 'muscle head' with brown hair and the white coat. It looks like they're going for something different this time. If he is the "modern day" Garo I guess it finally confirms that the anime Garo-verse isn't meant to be in continuity with the live action one.

    Wel... That's not exactly what happened. It was a marketing gimmick.

    They released the trailer without mentioning nor showing Garo, calling the show just Vanishing Line.

    However, some people noticed some of the hints and started to suspect.

    Then, this week, they uploaded a new trailer showing the title and the armour, so confirming that this is in fact a new Garo season.

    Ah, that's a beautiful box set if ever I've seen one. Can't wait for comparisons between this release and the Japanese release. Hopefully there won't be any visual or quality differences. I am fine with there not being any bonus materials, as long as the episodes themselves are untouched.

    I only have the Japanese DVDs, so they are going to be a massive improvement over those. I just hope the remastering job in HD got rid of the blurriness the series had.

    So every year on Thanksgiving there's a Garo event and this year was no exception. The first thing to show off is the new trailer for the 'Kami no Kiba' movie:


    There were two other announcements made at the event:

    1. Next year will (finally!) see filming start on the long-ago announced movie 'GARO Gekkou no Tabibito', starring Saejima Raiga, the lead of the fourth live action series 'Flower of Makai'.

    2. Following in the footsteps of the 'Kami no Kiba' movie, next year will also see filming begin on a new TV series starring Jinga, the villain from Goldstorm (and Kami no Kiba). Yes, Kamen Rider Decade himself, Masahiro Inoue, will be the lead in another tokusatsu TV series.

    I presume Season 7 is a prequel to Gold Storm and a follow-up to his and Amily's episode in Makai Retsuden? Will it be called "Fang of God" like the movie (as was done with Gold Storm) or something else?

    What does "Gekkou no Tabibito" translate to?

    Why not just do another Raiga season to hold us over until the movie?

    I agree it would seem like the obvious move to do a prequel from before Jinga became a Horror. The dialog in the movie trailer seems to confirm that it takes place after Goldstorm and yet Jinga and Amily are returning for it, so I guess they're getting resurrected. IMO Jinga hamming it up was the best thing about Goldstorm, so I wouldn't be opposed to following him as a vilainous protagonist.

    The only information given was that Amily would also appear in the series and that Amemiya himself is not working on it but instead "new staff" were creating it.

    EDIT: So while none of the toku news places mentioned a name for the series when I first posted this, Anime News Network has reported on it and IS calling it 'Kami no Kiba JINGA'.
    They also report that the 2nd anime series, 'Garo Crimson Moon', is getting it's own movie.
