Garo: Yami o Terasu Mono (牙狼〈GARO〉~闇を照らす者~, lit. "The One Who Shines in the Darkness") is a Japanese tokusatsu television series. that premiered on April 5, 2013, on TV Tokyo. Written and directed by Makoto Yokoyama, Yami o Terasu Mono is the third television series in the Garo continuity, set years in the future of the previous installments and featuring a new main cast of characters.[1] The catchphrase for the series, referred to as the Vol City Chapter (ボルシティ篇, Boru Shiti-Hen), is "Get back your gold." (金色を、取り戻せ。, Konjiki o, Torimodose.).

Story[edit]

Yami o Terasu Mono takes place at some undetermined point in the future in Vol City (ボルシティ, Boru Shiti), a metropolis build around a volcano and infested by evil demons known as Horrors. Ryuga Dougai, a Makai Knight who has inherited the title of Garo the Golden Knight, is tasked to hunt them down. However, the Garo Armor had long lost its golden radiance and it's not as powerful as it used to be. Joining forces with fellow Makai Knights Aguri and Takeru, along Makai Priests Burai and Rian, Ryuga confronts the dark side of the city that is plagued by a rare breed of Horrors called Madō Horrors (魔導ホラー, Madō Horā), and the mystery behind why a portion of the Garo Armor's golden light is restored every time he destroys one of them.[2]
