Very good intro. It looked like Garo: The Animation, but had a little bit of Jojo-like character design despite no Yasuko Kobayashi involved. I’ll discuss on my toku page, who was involved.
It’s an Eastern Garo vs a Western like the first one. Very good example of a sequel.
A female helper is involved this time.
The bad guy could be interpreted as not even a monster as he was just some dude who wanted to kill someone with a knife, but done with dramatic flare.
