Last fall, MAPPA graced us with GARO The Animation and it was actually a decent show considering I liked the other MAPPA show.
(Speaking of that, when’s that 2nd season of RAGE OF BAHAMUT again? There’s one coming, dammit!)
Anyway, here is GARO 2ND SEASON: The Crimson Moon.

Plot Summary: Heian-kyō, capital and the center of elegant, aristocratic culture, is heavily guarded by a spiritual force field — or so it seems. In reality, onmyōji (court magi who create the spiritual force field) can only defend the palace located in the northern part of the city; in downtown, monsters known as “horror” that feast upon human souls roam after sunset. There are, however, a group of heroes protecting commoners from “horrors” in darkness.
First Thoughts: Luckily for those jumping into this show and wonder should you watch the 1st series…well, it’s not a necessity so you’re good on that. For this show however… I find it on par with the first series with its campy vibes and fantasy-based action. This time around, our protagonists are the Makai Alchemist Seimei and mostly our shonen-type hero Raikou and they are mostly serviceable although I find the little brother to be mostly annoying. I don’t have too much about this except for it makes a good fantasy anime to watch this season as much as I find the genre bland and unamusing, especially with this year’s pickings.
I said I would CONTINUE BI-WEEKLY…… It’s still good but nothing I need to keep reminding myself to watch every week.
Until then, this is MAK2.0 aka The Blue Hybrid and I think I got one more show to look at….*sees what show it is* and damn it.
