With word recently that the second series for Garo would be coming out this fall, having learned of the second season back at the end of the first, fans now have a little bit more to grab onto in anticipation of the new work. Released through the official YouTube channel for the series, there’s a new 15 second piece that teases some of the designs and sets the mood well in a brief period. The second season is set for an October debut and a feature film is slated for next summer, which will feature a new story. The second TV season is changing things up a bit by going to the Heian period with a female lead for it.
The series stars Daisuke Namikawa as Leon Lewis, Kenyuu Horiuchi as Herman Lewis, Katushito Nomura as Alfonso San Valiante, Romi Park as Emma Gusman, Hironobu Kageyama as Zaruba, Takaya Hashi as Mendosa, Mari Tsuchii as Octavia, Mayu Udono as Garum and Natsumi Tada as Esmerelda.
Plot concept: The King’s close advisor implemented a large-scale witch-hunt. The tragic victims of this hunt were not witches, however, but Makai Knights and Makai Priests. One Makai Priestess gave birth to a child while being burned at the stake. That child carried the bloodlines of the Golden Knight. Although he was saved by his father, a Makai Knight himself, the newborn, León Luís, suffered greatly from the unjust death of his mother. And so he vowed to learn the ways of a Makai Knight from his father, Germán Luís, and use his training to seek revenge. During his battles against the demons known as “Horrors,” León must gradually approach reality and accept the truth.
Meanwhile, the powerful former adviser to the King, Mendoza, banished Prince Alfonso and his mother while the king was bedridden. Eager to reclaim his kingdom and save his people, Alfonso embarks on a quest to find the legendary Knight – but destiny holds a twist of fate in store for him.
Together, León and Alfonso begin long and difficult journey filled with many hardships.
