The story, taking place at least 20 years after the previous Garo movie, begins a long time ago, when the Horror named Eiris, also called “The Messiah’s Tear,” is sealed into a stone tablet by powerful Makai Priests. To do so required the use of 9 different Horrors as the spell’s Foundation.
Years later, this has been all but forgotten, and the tablet found it’s way into an exhibition in a museum, where a man dressed in black destroyed it, and released the 9 Horrors.
Upon hearing of this, the Watchdogs of the Makai Knights assign the quest to reseal the Horrors to the successor of Golden Knight Garo, Raiga Saejima, with the help of the Priest, Jill.
While Raiga and Jill hunt them, however, the Horrors lie in wait, as the Makai Tool needed to unseal Eiris fully is said to be in Raiga’s posession, and the Horror Azudabu tracks down Raiga using a strong sense of reasoning and swift action. While Raiga and Azudabu fight, a young girl named Mayuri watches, whom is on a mysterious mission of her own.
Can Garo reseal Eiris? What is the Makai Tool Mayuri carries? Who is the man dressed in black who broke the tablet? These questions and more will all be answered in the latest Garo series, Garo: The Makai Flower.
Garo: the Makai Flower is the sequel to Garo: Flash Knight and continues after the movie, Garo: Demon Dragon of the Blue Cries. You can check out the show’s official website at this link.
