The official website of the Garo franchise revealed on Thursday that the Garo: Crimson Moon television anime series is getting an anime film project. The site didn't reveal any other information about the project.

The site also revealed a new live-action television series in the franchise titled Kaminokiba JINGA. The show is a spinoff of the series focusing on Ryūga Dōgai, and centers around the character Jinga (played by Masahiro Inoue).

The staff also revealed that the previously announced Garo: Gekkō no Tabibito live-action film, which focuses on Raiga Saejima, will open in 2018.

The Garo the Animation and Garo: Crimson Moon television anime aired in 2014 and 2015, respectively, and Funimation Entertainment streamed both series. Funimation has also released both series on home video. Garo: Divine Flame, a film sequel to Garo the Animation, opened in Japan in May 2016. The latest anime entry in the Garo franchise, Garo -Vanishing Line-, premiered on October 6, and Crunchyroll is streaming the series with English subtitles. Funimation began streaming the series with an English dub on October 19.

The first 25-episode live-action Garo series premiered on October 7, 2005 and has spawned multiple live-action films and television series. The live-action Zero: Dragon Blood series, the newest entry in the franchise, premiered on January 6. The Garo: Kaminokiba live-action film, which focuses on Ryūga Dōgai, will open in Japan on January 6, 2018.

Section23 Films' Kraken Releasing brand announced in October 2016 that it has licensed the original live-action Garo series. The company released the first 13 episodes on Blu-ray Disc on October 17. HDIVE began streaming the series in June. Kraken Releasing announced last month that it will release the live-action Garo: Kiba - The Dark Knight! (Kiba ~Ankoku Kishi Gaiden~) special on Blu-ray Disc on February 20. Kraken Releasing also plans to release other installments in the Garo franchise.
