Releases of the Week: Garo gives mankind hope


The month of June is ending strong

I don't know about you, but the final week of June hit us with a ton of new things from glorious Nippon. One of the releases I'd like to focus on is the North American debut of Garo Special: Beast of the Demon Night, which is a direct continuation of the original late-night tokusatsu series. 

Honestly, this release is dear to me since it continues to create a glorious moment that fans of the genre never saw coming. Hopefully, it'll continue to meet Kraken Releasing's expectations. That way, we could see all of the live-action installments in the West.

Aside from the Wolf-themed Knights, the classics are going strong again as a manga of the grandaddy of combining robots enters the scene. While it's not the original Getter Robo, having the series by the Linebarrels of Iron duo is a nice thing. Of course, I'm talking about the original since I heard the anime adaptation wasn't that great.

Another great treat is True Tenchi Muyo! coming out, which is perfect for those who want to learn more about the original universe's lore. Who knows, it may help the third Tenchi OVA feel less confusing. For the Go Nagai lovers, a new volume of Devilman Grimoire hits the scene. 

With the list of new stuff being huge, I think they manage to cover every audience in this batch. Considering that we have some fantasy, magical girls, and drama in the mix, the month of June is off to an amazing end. I wonder if July can surpass it. For now, we'll just have to keep an eye on the schedule.
