Garo: The Animation, known in Japan as Garo -Honō no Kokuin- (Japanese: 牙狼〈GARO〉-炎の刻印- Hepburn: lit. Garo: The Carved Seal of Flames?), is a Japanese anime series based on the Garo tokusatsu drama series. Yasuko Kobayashi, who serves as the series' main screenwriter, announced early on that it would feature a brand new set of characters mostly unrelated to the main Garo continuity.[1][2] The anime has been licensed for streaming in North America by Funimation.[3] A second season and film adaptation have been announced for release in 2015.

Plot[edit]

Garo: The Animation is set in the fictitious Valiante Kingdom (ヴァリアンテ国 Variante-koku), which resembles Spain during the Spanish Inquisition. After the king, under the influence of his advisor Mendoza, launches a witch hunt that endangers both Makai Knights and Makai Alchemists, a Makai Alchemist named Anna is burned at the stake while giving birth to León Luis, who is spirited off by his Makai Knight father to be trained to inherit the title of Golden Knight Garo. Years later, after Valiante is now plagued with Horrors as Mendoza, revealed to be an excommunicated Makai Alchemist, uses them to assert his authority after usurping the throne, the king's son Prince Alfonso seeks out the assistance of Garo to reclaim the throne. The fully grown León returns to the land of his birth at this time to avenge his mother. Both he and Alfonso meet and learn that they are in fact maternal cousins whose grandfather was the previous Garo. Though León was relieved of the Garo title after Mendoza's assumed death for misconduct, Alfonso contends with the surviving Horrors in his kingdom. After casting away his drive for revenge and deciding to become a protector instead, León reclaims his armor and title, and joins forces with his friends to search after Mendoza once it is confirmed that he is still alive.[4][5]
