Year Aired: 2005-2006
Genre : Action, Tokusatsu
Episodes: 25

Synopsis: "Where there is light, shadows lurk and fear reigns... but by the blade of Knights, mankind was given hope..."
Garo focuses on the life of Makai Knight Saejima Kouga, who protects humanity against their own dark demonic manifestations called "Horrors". In his quest to purge them, he encounters a young girl named Kaoru whom he saved from a Horror, but was stained with its demonic blood. As a rule, those that been stained by the blood of a Horror shall be cut down, or else they will die painfully in approximately 100 days. Kouga takes mercy upon her and tries to find a way to purify her before her remaining time expires. Thus, the series focuses on Kouga's developing relationship with Kaoru and his stand in protecting humanity after the wishes of his father, who was his predecessor with the title of Garo. The series was created by Keita Amemiya, whose work include: Zeiram, Zeiram 2, Mechanical Violater Hakkaider, Moon Over Tao, Mahou Shoujo Tai Aris, Kaidan Shin Mimibukuro, Kamen Rider ZO, Kamen Rider J, Mirai Ninja and Iria - Zeiram The Animation. It is directed by Makoto Yokoyama (Power Rangers) and Kengo Kaji (Uzumaki).

While other tokusatsu series are focused to younger audiences (mostly children), Garo is one of the first of its kind to be oriented towards mature viewers. This approach probably has the intention to appease those who liked conventional tokusatsu series in the past, but already outgrew them.
