Zero: Black Blood (絶狼<ZERO>-BLACK BLOOD-, Zero -Burakku Buraddo-) is a Japanese film duology and television miniseries, spin-off from the Garo television series. The film is split into two portions. The White Chapter (白ノ章, Shiro no Shō) which comprises the first three episodes of the miniseries, had a limited theatrical release on March 8, 2014, and the Black Chapter (黒ノ章, Kuro no Shō), the last three episodes, had a limited theatrical release on March 22, 2014. The film was also shown on Japanese cable television channel Family Gekijo as a six-episode miniseries from March 5 through March 7, 2014, with two episodes shown each night.[1][2][3][4][5]

Ray Fujita stars as the lead character Rei Suzumura, the Silver Fanged Knight Zero, reprising his role as the character from the previous television series and films. The films/miniseries explores this character who served a supporting role in the previous productions and his investigation of a joint human and Horror commune led by the Horror Ring.

Plot[edit]

Zero: Black Blood is set after the events of the film Garo: Soukoku no Maryu. Rei Suzumura, Zero the Silver Fanged Knight, is patrolling on his own when he encounters the white Horror Ring, who has created a commune where Horrors and humans live together in harmony, so long as one human a month allows themselves to be devoured by the Horrors. Rei, along with Makai Priest Cain and the knight-in-training Yuna are ordered by the Makai Senate to slay Ring and free the humans under his thrall by means of Yuna's mother the Makai Priestess Iyu.
