Garo (牙狼 -GARO- （ガロ）, "Fanged Wolf"), sometimes referred to as Golden Knight Garo (黄金騎士ガロ, Ōgon Kishi Garo), is a Japanese tokusatsu television series broadcast on TV Tokyo from October 7, 2005, to March 31, 2006, lasting 25 episodes (with one additional "Overview" special, summarizing the events of episodes 1 through 13, aired before episode 14). Since 2007, the show has also been aired in other countries such as Italy (on MTV), Malaysia (on 8TV), and Spain (on Canal Buzz). The show's HD remastered version was broadcast on TV Tokyo starting July 8, 2016. The television series is the first installment of the "GARO" metaseries, which is composed of several installments, including a live action television series, films, TV & film specials, and anime series. The television series has been licensed for a North American release by Kraken Releasing.
The series was created and directed by Keita Amemiya (Kamen Rider ZO, Zeiram) with supporting direction from Makoto Yokoyama (Power Rangers) and Kengo Kaji (Uzumaki). The creature designer was Yasushi Nirasawa, known for his later work as the designer of the Imagin for Kamen Rider Den-O, as well as for his work designing the monsters of Kamen Rider Blade and Kamen Rider Kabuto.
Since the beginning, mankind's malice created a dark energy (inga) that seeps into the Makai World. It's through that world that exists parasitic and predatory demons called Horrors. Ever hungry for more inga, they cross through the human world to possess and devour people to satiate their hunger. However, a group of people created the Makai Order to fight them. Consisting of priests and knights, they are the shadows that protect humanity from the Horrors.
Decades ago, a young Makai Knight named Barago lost his family to Horrors and wanted more power (shown in Kiba Side Story). Through his journey, he trained under Taiga Saejima, Golden Knight Garo. However, Barago's desire for power was great and was lured by the promise of greater power from Messiah, the Mother of all Horrors. A dark bargain was made: Barago will become Dark Knight Kiba, devour 1,000 horrors, and merge with Messiah to become a supreme being. Taiga attempted to save him but Barago went after Kouga (Taiga's son) and Taiga died protecting him. Leaving him an orphan, Kouga vowed to become stronger and succeed as the next Garo.
Barago survived his fight but was badly disfigured. To realize his ambition, he made a little girl named Kaoru into a host for Messiah. He later killed the silver knight, Dōji, for his potion to restore his looks. For the next several years, Barago disguised himself as Dr. Karune Ryuzaki, Kaoru's therapist to keep tabs on her.
Dōji's adopted son, Rei, witnessed the murder of his father and fiancée; he swore vengeance and succeeded as the next Silver Knight Zero. Because the killer resembled Garo's armor, he suspects his family's killer is Garo. In between, Kouga completed his training and succeeds as the new Garo. With his loyal butler (Gonza) and magical ring (Zaruba), Kouga goes out to protect humanity.
Chapter of The Black Wolf
Kaoru Mitsuki is attempting to get recognized for her artwork when the curator turned into a Horror. Kouga appeared and slayed the horror, but she was tainted in the horror's blood. Whoever is tainted will only have 100 days to live and made themselves delicious to horrors. A knight is expected to slay the victim to spare them, but Kouga wants to save her. This starts the unlikely relationship between the two.
As a magnet to horrors, Kouga tracked Kaoru's activities to make sure she's not harmed. Originally thinking Kouga is a stalker, she realized he has been protecting her as she keeps bumping into new horrors. Kouga wanted Kaoru close to him as possible; she took advantage of his words and stayed at his home when she became homeless. As the two get to know each other, they started to like each other. However, things got complicated with the arrival of Zero and Barago's machinations at play.
Under the presumption that Garo killed his family, Rei has consistently interfered and fought Kouga. Without absolute proof, Rei continued to vent his anger and tried to kill Kouga without explaining himself. To worsen things, Rei has harassed Kaoru and even tried to kill her (aware of her taint), causing the two to fight. Things would later change when the truth is revealed.
Kouga would later meet with Priest Amon, to talk about curing Kaoru. However, Amon mentioned his suspicions that Barago might be still alive. Shortly after, Kaoru learned that Kouga has been using her as horror bait. Heart broken, she ran away but suffered deep anxieties knowing she's a walking target. Not long after, Barago killed Amon but his disciple, Jabi, was blamed for his death. To make matters worse, she distrusted the Watch Dogs and stole a box of Horror Daggers from them.
The Watch Dogs (Ker, Ber, and Rose) that govern Kouga ordered him retrieve the daggers and kill Jabi, but they were friends and he wanted to give her a chance before passing judgement. Kouga refused to accept his mission and left to find Jabi, but the watch dogs in turn tasked Zero for the job. To further motivate him, they falsely assured Rei they could bring his lover back and confirmed Kouga murdered his family.
Although Kouga found Jabi, she was deeply suspicious of him as Amon clued a knight killed him. Rei arrived and had Kaoru as his hostage, but Kouga managed to get Kaoru back. He sent Jabi and Kaoru away as he fought Zero. Fueled by rage, Zero almost killed Kouga but Jabi returned to save him. Kaoru would run off after realizing she's dying, but Gonza found her and asked Kaoru to have faith in Kouga.
After Kouga recovered, he and Jabi found the watch dogs suspicious and agreed to exorcise the daggers themselves. Rei was also suspicious of the watch dogs but continued to serve them. Ker-Ber-Rose didn't trust Zero to complete the job and sent their loyal servant, Kodama, to assure the job is done. Kodama found the duo and seemingly killed Jabi. As Kouga fought Kodama, Rei arrived and helped Kouga exorcise the daggers. Unfortunately, it didn't work and it gave rise to a giant horror. It was then that Dark Knight Kiba arrived and devoured the horror. Rei now realized his family's killer was Kiba.
After Kiba vanished, Kouga refocused on curing Kaoru. He ventured into another world and fought the Grou Dragon for the cure. With the help of Rei, Kouga got the cure and saved Kaoru. However, the gate that was imbued on Kaoru was activating and she'll become a vessel for Messiah to cross over. While looking into Messiah and Kiba, their investigation reveals everything is tied to Barago and Ker-ber-rose is allied with him. Realizing their common enemy is Barago, Kouga and Rei made peace and focus their attention towards the dark knight.
Barago was ahead of everyone and kidnapped Kaoru. Garo and Zero went to find Barago but was stopped by Kodama. Desperate to save Kaoru, he exceeded the armor's time limit and became a Lost Soul Beast. In a fit of feral rage, Garo killed Kodama and Zero was forced to fight Kouga. Zero managed to retract his armor and the two pressed on to face Barago.
While heading to rescue Kaoru, Gulm (Ker-ber-rose's merged form) fought Zero while Kouga faced Barago. Messiah by now had taken over Kaoru's body and devoured Barago. She revealed the legend and myth behind the dark knight was a rumor she created to attain enough power to cross into the human world. To save Kaoru, Kouga took her body to the makai realm and Messiah's true body revealed herself. Ultimately, Zero killed Gulm and Garo defeated Messiah. Kouga and Kaoru made it back to the human realm when Kiba returned for a final showdown. Garo defeated Kiba, but at the price of Zaruba.
In the aftermath, Kaoru decided to head to Italy to further her art studies and Rei helped restore Zaruba. As a parting gift, Kaoru finish her father's incomplete art book and put a touching end for Kouga to see. The story ends with Kouga patrolling a new district; the story continues in Beast of the Demon Night.
The main antagonistic form in the series, Horrors are demons that reside in a realm known as the netherworld, and thrive on the darkness of humanity. The Horrors enter the human world through everyday objects known as Inga Gates, which are created through a mass of darkness. When the Horrors first come through, they also known as Inga Horrors, and must possess the body of the first human with inner darkness they come across. Because the Horrors feed on humans it is a Makai Knight's duty to hunt and slay the demons. Later entries in the series reveal more types of Horrors.
