Remember how I talked about my excitement towards the trailer for the new Garo movie? Apparently, it has risen to a new level, because Garo is going to get a third season in the form of Garo: The One Who Shines in the Darkness. With no sign of the original actors at the moment, a new set of people have been listed as part of the show's cast.
Wataru Kuriyama and Junya Ikeda (Gai aka Gokai Silver from Gokaiger) have been recruited into the series, along with Miki Nanra and Tsunenori Aoiki making their acting debut into tokusatsu. Making the era shine, Makoto Yokoyama continues his task in directing the TV series, so we won't have to worry about the light growing dim.
Even if the main cast from the previous installments remains unmentioned, that doesn't mean that they won't return, since this is only the first announcement. If Ikeda happens to be a Makai Knight in the third season, then that would be another reason to increase excitement levels. If not, then his role could still turn out to be an interesting one in Garo's realm. Since we have yet to know the roles of the actors mentioned, anything can happen at this point.
As for the new show's air date, that piece of information has yet to be announced. No matter how long it takes, I am willing to wait, since the final product will continue to impress.
To all of you Makai Knights out there, are any of you excited that there's going to be a new Garo TV series?
