If you enjoy these pictures, I'm sure you can find them on Silverwind's tumblr account. The sources should be there too.

Actually wanted to release Toq vs Gaim tonight, but an error was found in the distro release, so we're reencoding it. So please enjoy this for now. We'll release Toq vs Gaim overnight as encodes get finished. Thanks!

Garo Beast of the White Night Version 3 released

Nothing like looking at these sketches to realize that Garo is a world into Director Amemiya's imagination. The images are in the torrent batch, so no need to download them separately, but here's a link anyway:

Imgur for images

No specific reason for the rerelease. I just wanted to show my friend the video, so I wanted to encode it using the latest encoding techniques we have. There's a few mistake corrections too. This is one of my all time favorite toku movies, so I hope you guys enjoy it if you haven't seen it yet.

Whoops, I left out some pictures in the torrent batch. Here they are:

Release 3300: Garo Soukoku no Maryuu

Thread / Wiki

Man, 3300 subs in 10 years going 11. Check the thread for pictures from the materials that came with the Blu-ray. I'm processing them now.

The movie takes place after Makai Senki, but for the most part is a complete spin off. Feel free to watch it whenever.

On to the next Garo thing?

Why aren't you watching Garo?

As amazing as it is, apparently there are still some people who watch tokusatsu, but haven't seen any of the Garo series. That seems a bit mind boggling to me, since Garo is some of the finest examples of the craft. Plus, as a part of Hyper Midnight Action aimed at adults, it's one of the few tokusatsu series that makes no attempt to pander to kids.

Of course, I'm not unsympathetic with the climate of modern life. We're being bombarded by a million things we need to see and that list just grows exponentially everyday.

But still, it does puzzle me to see the consistently low number of Garo downloads in comparison to Sentai or Kamen Rider. Going back to my previous statement, I guess it's only natural to grow up on Power Rangers, then maybe expand to Sentai. And from those numbers, a few will break off and try Kamen Rider. It's a Venn Diagram of increasingly small circles.

Maybe some people watched the original series, and found it boring. I know I did. But looking back, there's something about the series as a whole that transcends the individual episodes. I think the sum is greater than its parts here.

It probably helps that I feel the Garo Special: Beast of the White Night is one of the greatest examples of a toku movie that there is. The action is amazing. And at its heart, there's a real relatable human drama that everyone can connect with.

I mean, take any Garo series that exists. They always do something interesting and never seen before with their action. I've just got to respect their handiwork.

But on the flip side, there's just something likable about the characters. Stoic Kouga. Cheeky Rei. Silly Kaoru. There are a ton of characters in the Garo series that I just like, and would love to see more stories about. If we can claim Garo is a successful series, then maybe that's its biggest secret.

Garo Yami wo Terasu Mono 23 released

We still have more Garo to go! Just using Tougen pictures since I don't have many Yami ones.

Thread / Wiki

Tougen spoilers?

You can watch this movie without watching Soukoku or any of the other previous Garo series. It's a standalone movie.

There's a lot of nice nods and you really should watch the previous Garo shows/movies, but if you don't want to do that, I have a list of the references on the wiki as well.

Garo Gaiden: Tougen no Fue released

So I was extremely pessimistic when I heard Tougen was coming out. But you know what, it's pretty good. It has good action, a decent story, and it really invokes the atmosphere from the first season of Garo. It's a lot more than just "a side story with the minor characters from Garo".

Thread / Wiki

Also, if you can play music, this is apparently the sheet music for Requiem for Heroic Heroes from Red Requiem which was included in the Tougen booklet.

Also also, there's two extra footage clips this time. Enjoy!
