In a prosperous city named Russell City, an omen that threatens to shake its world begins to move within it. A man named Sword is the first to hear the first stirrings of the plot, and throws himself into a shadow war in order to expose it. His only clue is the key word "El Dorado." He meets Sophie, a woman searching for her missing older brother who has only left her with the same words: "El Dorado." With Sword having also lost his younger sister in the past, both are drawn together by the words, and work together to find out its meaning.
At this time 11 episodes have aired now. This show is a good one, it evolves over time and becomes more in depth. Action is good and to be be honest the different stories are entertaining it's a show like I said before evolves in the sense that you feel like your watching two shows but in a engaging way. Characters are solid and certain backstories are explained very well. For me it's an entertaining show to pass by the time but certainly not my favorite.
Don't worry about the rating as you may like the show and think much higher of it.
First of all its no sequel of other Garos , so you dont need to watch any other Garo series in order to understand this 1 , so feel free to give a start.
I already watch the Garo animation so i know little bit about the monsters.This garo is an awesome series so far.Its 10/10 for me.
You got a cool Male mc that is badass and A girl who got guts to stand against horror , she is trying to find her brother tho.Don't worry if you wanna see badass girl then this series have 1.In episode 3 you will find a S rated badass
girl.Damm she is so badass.
Story is simple but good,Sword the mc who is makai knight , that fights horrors created by negative energy and looking for a place Eldorado and the female mc Sophie is a normal girl but her brother went missing and she finds out that horrors and the name eldorado has to do something with her brother missing.They both counter each other and sopphie find out that sword will be helpful to find her brother and so it goes on.
I love the sounds of the anime its amazing.
Character are so good , good job by mappa.We have kawii girl and cool mc.We have badass supporting chracter Luke and Gine and both are badass.
Overall i enjoyed this anime its amazing for and according to my taste well its far batter than Die Iraes , lol.Its amazing and unique anime its just have low score that does not mean you should not watch.Its worth a try and its amazing.This 1 is far batter than Garo The crimson moon and good as Garo the animation(first garo series)
Well my review will be deleted after episode 12 coz i know this series will have 20+ episodes.
So, here we are...most presumably the end of the 1st cour, and moving onto the 2nd cour with El Dorado as the focus.
So, at this point, pretty much we know are these series of events:
1) Setting of Garo in the US (Russell City)
2) Gina, Sword and Sophie most presumably being family towards each other
3) The real purpose and intention behind El Dorado, the kingdom of happiness (which we know has the main villains)
4) The trio on the journey towards El Dorado, one step closer to knowing the full plan.
5) As for Luke, he might have the revenge on the Dark Knight (soon in the 2nd
As for characters, Sword's never-ending knowledge of lust and power to stop Horrors is the main focus, Gina's case on-point to help out with Sword in eliminating Horrors and Sophie's involvement to get her brother back is still in progress. Luke on the other hand, has been neglected pretty much at this point so I can't comment on how the storyline will eclipse with his character.
As for production values, MAPPA still holds out pretty evenly well, if not a touch bad. For such an action-packed series such as Garo, the use of CGI is important for identifying details about how good they are used, and still holds out as a decent job done. Just so that in the 2nd cour, expect more action scenes and hopefully MAPPA doesn't let us down.
So, will the 2nd cour of Garo: Vanishing Line get back to the roots of what the originals are proclaimed of? Certainly not, but hoping that the staff working on this project doesn't gimp in progress.
I have a feeling that this show is underrated. Many does not give it a chance because of CGI even tho it is only used in some parts that require it.
It is a very entertaining and action-packed story which is certainly one of the better action animes.
It is a world where humans who get too much hatred and greed might be consumed by the darkness and be turned into a monster who kills for something "El Dorado" which the protectors are trying to find out about.
There are so many different stories and moments, and you get to know many characters in a special
way that is not just a flashback of something pointless, but something that makes sense. Its so interesting!
On Crunchyroll every single episode has gotten a 5-star and 4,5/5 on reviews of the anime. Some of the reviews are ofc just about the first episode complaining about the cgi.
