The tagline on the visual reads, "A baby born from a mother burned at the stake — What that life inherited, is the fateful title…."
The film is a sequel set four years after Honō no Kokuin, the first Garo the Animation television series. Director Yuichiro Hayashi, head writer Yasuko Kobayashi, and the anime studio MAPPA are reuniting after working on the first Garo the Animation television series. The teaser trailer will begin running on November 28, at Tokyo's Shinjuku Wald 9 and other theaters that will run the film itself next spring.
Monday's event also announced that there will be two more live-action television series. The omnibus television series Garo -Makai Retsuden- (pictured above) will reunite the cast members of previous works next spring. The Zerō television series (pictured bottom left in image below) will be a television series version of the Zerō -Black Blood- films that opened in March 2014. Ray Fujita will reprise his starring role next year.
Makai Kagekidan, the musical group formed by the franchise's cast members, will perform a live concert of their own at Tokyo's Shibuya Guilty venue on January 31. Then, the 10th-anniversary event "Garo 10-Shūnen Kinen -Makai no En-" (Garo 10th Anniversary Makai Party) will be held at Chiba's Maihama Amphitheater on February 11.
