posted on by Egan Loo
The second teaser trailer for Garo: Divine Flame-, the first Garo anime film, debuted at the "Garo 10-Shūnen Kinen -Makai no En-" (Garo 10th Anniversary Makai Party) event at Chiba's Maihama Amphitheater on Thursday. The event also revealed the film's May opening and previewed a new visual and screenshots from the film. The new teaser is streaming online and will play in theaters starting on Saturday.
In the new visual below, the tagline reads, "This fight, who is it for…." It features the main character Leon Luis as well as the new character Dario.
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 first teaser trailer debuted in November online and at Tokyo's Shinjuku Wald 9 and other theaters that will run the film itself.
