posted on by Karen Ressler
The official website for the Garo anime announced on Friday that Masakazu Katsura (Tiger & Bunny character design, Zetman original creator) will design the characters for the upcoming second anime series, Garo -Guren no Tsuki- (Garo -Moon of Crimson-). The website teased his designs with a key visual of the characters in silhouette.
The website also began streaming a teaser video focusing on one of the main characters, Raikō, a "person who attacks the darkness." The video is the first in a series.
The video features the line "I will definitely not forgive those who exploit the weakness of people's hearts" next to a silhouette of Raikō. The end of the video features the line "In a world of peace (Heian), darkness surges."
The Garo Project began in 2005, with the first live-action series airing in 2006 with 25 episodes. It has since inspired multiple television series, films, and specials. The most recent live-action drama, Garo -Gold Storm- Shō, debuted with a film in March, followed by a television series in April.
