Garo News


Another Zero poster. Starts in January? Damn… no breaks for takenoko.

Kami no Kiba

A Jinga movie?

Gekkou no Tabibito (Maybe Yuena no Tabibito)

Another movie. What is this? For the anime? Or is this going to be what brings back Kouga?


Release 3901: Kamen Rider Ex-Aid 06

...since we forgot to acknowledge release 3900...


It's a Pi Pu Pe Po Panic!

Jyuohger 37 released

What's in the box?! What's in the box?!

Oh, I've played Super Mario World. It's just one of those dang feathers that gives you a cape.

Oh, Halloween. Remember back then? Those innocent times?

Toku stats

Elsomkms92 is making a spreedsheet for toku data

He's looking for some reliable sources. If you happen to know any, please contact him.


Ex-Aid Virtual Operations 05b released

Gaim? What's a gaim? Oooh, a gaim!

Just a note that we're numbering a virtual ops to make it easier to figure out when it was released in terms of episodes. Apparently this is the last one, for now?

No Jyuohger or Ex-Aid aired last week, so this is all we're getting till it airs again this Sunday.


Toku showings

From Zero:

So I'll try to stream twice this week. The same Friday night stream : 7 PM Pacific and another stream on Saturday : 10 AM Pacific. I already posted about it in the thread and added the event on the Facebook page : https://www.facebook.com/TR-Schdeule-288139184913292/

Just thought I'd plug this, since I think it's a great anime with a lot of interesting themes and ideas behind beautiful visuals.

Know your directors: Kaneda Ryuu

I wrote this article a few weeks ago, but forgot to post it. It's a bit half-assed, but at least you'll get some idea of who Kaneda Ryuu is and the kind of work he does. He did direct this week's Garo, so it's just as well to release it this week.

I'd like to do more at some point. If anyone wants to write up an article about something similar, just let me know and I'll plug it.

San Francisco meetup and other stuff

Just a reminder that if you live in the Northern California area, we're having a meetup in Japantown, San Francisco.

Friday November 11th. It's the Friday after this Friday.

If you're interested, drop a note in the thread so we can plan it out (there might not be any more plan than wandering aroudn Japantown and chatting). Or send me an e-mail just so I know how many people we're going to have.



If you haven't watched this week's episode yet, why not join our group showings?


Zero's also working on doing some spinoff stuff, like setting up a podcast and doing toku news. You can check out a site he's working with someone named Japanime.



Garo 17+CM remaster and cm released

Thanks to the new sam for editing this pic, so that I can continue my silly insistence that Kaiba is cosplaying as Kouga.

Zero has a questionnaire that he'd like people to fill out. It's for his group watch stream as well as some other stuff that he wants to try. Please take a second to look.



Looks like Zero changed the questionnaire somewhat:


KR Ex-Aid 04 + Poppy's Room, Virtual Operation, CM

Watch now or wait till the group watch on Friday!

This week's toku showing

We are going to be showing 2 episodes of Garo this week due it being Halloween. Here is the link to the poll to decide the best "Monster of the Week Episode" that will be the second episode shown this week.

Forum poll http://forums.tvnihon.com/viewtopic.php?f=216&t=20448

Poll if you don't have a forum account https://goo.gl/i2gphy

Please cast your vote by the end of Thursday.


(Note: I should really post a plug for this when we release Garo at the beginning of the week, not after everyone's downloaded the episodes)

Jyuohger 35 released
