posted on by Crystalyn Hodgkins
The "Kinrō Appreciation Festival" event in Tokyo on Wednesday for the Garo franchise announced that a new television anime series in the franchise has been green-lit. The event also announced a film in the Ryūga Dōgai live-action series titled Garo: Kaminokiba, and a film in the Raiga Saejima live-action series titled Garo: Gekkō no Tabibito.
Additionally, the event revealed that the live-action series Zero: Dragon Blood (pictured at right) will premiere on TV Tokyo and its affiliated networks on January 6 at 25:23 (effectively January 7 at 1:23 a.m.).
The Garo the Animation and Garo: Crimson Moon television anime aired in 2014 and 2015, respectively, and Funimation Entertainment streamed both series. Funimation released the first series on home video this year. Garo: Divine Flame, a film sequel to Garo the Animation, opened in Japan in May.
Section 23's Kraken Releasing brand announced last month that it has licensed the original live-action Garo series and plans to release it in 2017. The company also plans to release other installments in the Garo franchise. The first 25-episode series premiered on October 7, 2005 and has spawned multiple live-action films and television series.
