posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda
Funimation describes Garo the Animation:
The King's close advisor implemented a large-scale witch-hunt. The tragic victims of this hunt were not witches, however, but Makai Knights and Makai Priests. One Makai Priestess gave birth to a child while being burned at the stake. That child carried the bloodlines of the Golden Knight. Although he was saved by his father, a Makai Knight himself, the newborn, León Luís, suffered greatly from the unjust death of his mother. And so he vowed to learn the ways of a Makai Knight from his father, Germán Luís, and use his training to seek revenge. During his battles against the demons known as “Horrors,” León must gradually approach reality and accept the truth.
Meanwhile, the powerful former adviser to the King, Mendoza, banished Prince Alfonso and his mother while the king was bedridden. Eager to reclaim his kingdom and save his people, Alfonso embarks on a quest to find the legendary Knight – but destiny holds a twist of fate in store for him.
Together, León and Alfonso begin long and difficult journey filled with many hardships.
The series premiered in October 2014. Funimation streamed the series as it aired in Japan. The series is the first animation installment in the popular GARO franchise that since 2005 has spawned multiple television series and movies. The second GARO anime, Garo: Crimson Moon, premiered last October. Funimation is streaming the series as it airs in Japan.
Funimation describes Rage of Bahamut: Genesis:
Two thousand years ago, the black-and-silver-winged dragon, Bahamut, terrorized the magical land of Mistarcia. The humans, god, and demons that inhabited the land united forces against the fiend and sealed its power into a key which was split in two, one half protected by gods and the other protected by demons. Now, Mistarcia is a peaceful realm – until a human woman steals the god's half of the key.
The series premiered in October 2014. Funimation streamed the series as it aired in Japan. A second season and a spinoff, Rage of Bahamut: Manaria Friends, have been green-lit, with the latter slated to premiere in April.
