The official website for the Garo Project tokusatsu drama program announced on Saturday that an anime for the franchise has been green-lit. Yasuko Kobayashi (Attack on Titan, JoJo's Bizarre Adventure series composition) will be handling series composition and will also be writing the scripts. The title for the anime is still undecided, but it will tell a completely new and original story.
The Garo drama franchise has a dark story that revolves around humans that have the job of "Makai Knights," people who fight against demonic beings called Horrors. The first television series in the franchise revolves around Makai Knight Kōga Saejima, who tries to save a girl named Kaoru from her fate of death after being tainted by demon blood.
The Garo Project began in 2005, with the first series airing into 2006 with 25 episodes. The franchise has had a total of three television series and various films and specials. The latest installment in the franchise, Garo Gaiden: Tōgen no Fue (Garo Side Story: Flute of the Phantom Peach) was released in Japanese theaters in July.
