So Souma really only uses a stock Hanage armor, quite an interesting change since the Hanage armor in anime looks more or less the same as the one in Kougaverse.

>>22449862
Anime continunity might be the same with OG verse, since there are so many elements in common, especially the usage of Madoba, which is nowhere to be found in Ryugaverse.

Pachinko parlors are alive and well. Or is it that making one suit is expensive, but making additional copies of an already existing design is cheap?

Cloning suits is cheaper since you don't have to pay designers for that. Also, there is a spare Hagane suit they are using for Garo exhibition, so you can tell they are betting everything on this show's potential success.

>>22450117
At the very least, they probably have two Hagane suits and just swap the gems/eyes out.

Makai Kishi look overdesigned in general, so i wouldn't judge them by that. But the biggest fault probably how high tech they look. Even Vanishing Line maintain the fantasy aspect of the armors better than these trashes.

I'm really liking this series so far. I think a big positive is that it's not strictly revolving around Ryuga. He's there and an important part of the team, but the main focus is more on the rest of the party, a bunch of low-ranking grunts, and how they handle things as opposed to the big dick cream of the crop knights and priests we usually see.
>>
Latest ep was good, some pretty fun action sequences in there. Glad Souma's stopped being a tit, the entire party we have here is pretty cool when they're like this. Looks like the plot will start to pick up in pace now which is good too.

Igusu himself should have been fighting horrors for decades, and other 2 are pretty much his pupils, yet he is still a Hanage, maybe Hanage have to slay a few legendary horrors on their own before they could receive a title. Though that would make sense why the amount of titled armors are limited, especially in the more modern time, since whenever legendary horrors shows up they would get slain by a bunch of titled knights, leaving nothing else for the rank and file.
>>
>>22452505
Ryuga already said few eps ago that Hagane armor is not garbage. At the end of the day, saving human is more important than what title you have. Knowing his personal experience with a broken Garo armor, title is meaningless when essential qualities of a makai knight are missing, either by personality, morality or the once fancy suit now reduced to a shadow of its former self.

His first form was canonically garbage and he went through this in his debut series. The first "form" he gained was the default Garo. The knights with fully functional Hagane armor are not in the position to bitch about being "weak".

Ryuga kind of has to bust his ass to get new forms. Kouga just kind of zoops a new thing in because Amemiya had a design.

I swear the Fang of God movie had Zen and Gai go gold too?

Ryuga shared the gold shine with the homies. Also, Goldstorm confirmed the gold shine is related to hope and courage. That's why everyone could throw their hands up and give Garo their energy to make spirit garo.
>>
>>22452826
Not to mention lost shine garo was like 1% of default Garo, probably even weaker than Hagane since Hagane actually whole and has bunch of cool shit, even inexperience noobs can safely use it.

I feel like Garo is pretending that it is not a henshin hero franchise and rejecting the toys. It is almost frustrating how toku nowadays must be either intrusive toy advertisement or tonedeaf tv show with 0 toys.

>>22454185
"Something" was that the figures weren't selling. Of course it didn't help that they were so expensive and difficult to find, but Garo is a niche franchise held up almost entirely by pachinko money, not toy sales like other tokusatsu franchises.

Do Hagane have the 99 second limit rule the titled armors have as well? Not that the time limit is really applied a lot of the time, but still. I dunno if this stuff gets more coverage in the anime shows which I haven't watched but it's weird to me that it's taken this long to give Hagane as a concept some actual focus, feels like we should've seen more characters like the Swordsmen of Agora in earlier series
>>
>>22454721
The last Makai Kado was in 2018. I think there was no demand for stuff like Jinga and VR because no one gives a shit about these offbrand blacksheeps.
>>
>>22454875
Ryugaverse doesn't have lost soul beast and time limit.
>>
>>22454875
I think the time limit has gone from a hard rule to a suggestion in more recent years. I think it's better to think of the time limit as a safe range, like the accepted maximum amount of time your average knight can wear the armor before it becomes incredibly risky.

Sort of I believe.
In the very first series they said Soul Metal will turn Death Metal when time exceeds 99.9 seconds.
Later they've added another condition that even after 99.9 seconds the negative energy will starts to corrupt the soul of the knight, meaning there is still a short period of time to get away with it. A hint that there is a way to get away with it.
When it gets to Raiga he completely broke the rule with 光覚獣身.

Ryuga's Garo Yami pretty much has similar effect as Raiga's but on a different path.
>>
>>22455424
you forgot the time limit restriction going away if they're in the Makai realm which featured a lot in Makai Senki IIRC. I may be wrong but I'm pretty sure they were in armor longer than a minute in the final few episodes
>>
>>22455444
I presume the talk is about them in normal realm.
And yes time limit for the armors is gone in makai but there is still issues for them to run around with their regular outfits and accessories for too long.
>>
>>22455424
Raiga's was fucking wild because he just nuh uh'd the rules essentially.

Ryuga's entire thing with darkness seems to be more like make it a weapon then flashbang the enemy with Garo shine. Both his batman mode and the new sword technique essentially just put on a black coat then flash the enemy with GAAAAROOOOOO.

Actually, why would any self-respecting male choose to be an effeminate makai priest over a manly knight, even if just a Hagane which is still infinitely cooler?
>>
>>22455408
At some point in Goldstorm or whichever one it was, there was an extended battle scene between the three knights and that fallen knight that definitely went over the 99.9 second mark.
So they do play it fast and loose sometimes.

Knighthood is incredibly physically and mentally demanding and it takes a lifetime of dedicated training that would kill or maim normal humans. Priesthood is likely easier to achieve and grants extensive knowledge of the Makai arts, but the tradeoff is that they aren't as outright strong as a Knight would be.

IIRC, Hagane was something they came up as last minute solution for Makai Senki finale when they didn't have enough time and budget to create unique armors for all other knights in the final battle, so it makes sense that they didn't integrated its concept into the series thoroughly afterward, and just gave it some kind of small nod here and there.

What? First of all, Hagane are not " all other knights", they are grunt knights with mass production suits. Amemiya originally even consider monoeye design. It is an idea with time and consideration put into it.
If you are wondering why didn't they just pop up in previous Ryugaverse entries, why should they? The conflicts in Ryugaverse is honestly pretty tame compares to Kougaverse.

Most actors belonging to talent stables have a relatively brief window of being young and hot and making big money. After like 25 you're dead meat. You either hit the big times as an actor, model, or musician with strong brand recognition, or you get bounced for the younger talent. I assume a lot of toku actors who get churned through the yearly Sentai/Kamen Rider system wind up suffering pretty badly from the vanishing of their career once they stop getting called back for movie war cameos.

It feels like there are one of two outcomes for him and they depend on what state his father is in when/if they find him:
>embrace being a Hagane - likely if Godo fell to darkness and became a Dark Knight/Horror
>acquire and become Zango - likely if Godo has been barely hanging on and keeping the Gate closed waiting for his son
Of course we don't know what Zango looks like and what its weapon specialty is but given it's another "Z" armor and those tend to be silver armors with two blades (Zero, Zoro, Zelos), we can probably guess.

I feel like the thrust of the story is about Souma coming to grips with being a Hagane and a knight in general. Him getting a Titled armor would kind of upend the main crux of the whole "Hagane are just as relevant as the unique knights". I think a better angle for the back half is whoever the big bad is, starts dangling Zango and Godo's "legacy" of it in front of him as a temptation to betray the others. Souma resists and "inherits" Hagane as an identity, not just a nameless tool. (maybe his Hagane loses it's faceplate and bears fangs in the finale when he finally masters his dads cool super move)

I know it's almost certainly for budget reasons why they all use the same mold, but I was sure when the suits were first revealed that Souma's Hagane had some customization, which explained why it looked so different from Hagane we've seen before. That oni face on the back especially looks like it's not meant to be a standard feature.

Leo, Tsubasa, Luke
>>
>>22458674
I really do think it'll be the former. The climax of Souma's development is clearly going to be him shedding the weight of his father's legacy and embracing his own path.
>>
>>22458484
>>22459079
In Leo's case, it's a big reveal that he's actually Lord on top of being a Priest - implying it's not common. And Luke doesn't become Zelos until after the events of VL, so I wouldn't necessarily count him since that's a post-series thing.

Tsubasa was Dan from the start though.

Because Ryuga's inner darkness was not literall corruption like Kiba, that was simply his human flaws. In Gold Storm movie, he had to purge away dark substance from Garo armor.

>Everyone else is all light this and shining

Not true. Alot of knights have been known to do morally questionable practices just to get the job done. It is not about light and darkness, when you have to choose between bunch of assholes and bunch of man-eating monsters, you pick the assholes. Good guys Makai knights can be as questionable as you make them out to be, but at the end of the day, they don't eat you alive.
>>
>>22459390

That was just the normal purifying Kouga always does, except Ryuga doesn't have a dedicated Garo shrine to do it in and didn't even know about it.

Technically it was a pair of movies first. Still, they probably could have trimmed those down to a single film.

Thane Camus was pretty entertaining as Ring and the star-obsessed Horror in Makai no Hana. It'd be funny if he played a good guy next time, like a Makai Knight from overseas who taunts his foes in English ("I shall rend your karma asunder!").

Her "bullying" was simply wanted the bartender to stop it with her schizoid depression, even prepared her a costume and everything. The reason why she turned into a Horror was because she couldn't stop pitying herself and decided to blame the world instead. Even when the customers cheered for her, her imaginative insults popped up in her head.
This is somewhat a reflection of Souma himself, he has no pride as Zango's son and thinks he will never amount to anything.

She literally suggested her not to pick it and pull herself together instead.
You seems rather confused so i will elaborate this aspect of Garo lore. You don't suddenly being hijacked by Horror just because you are some poor girl being bullied. Each human contains "Inga" ( Dark Side ) and Horrors can hijack human body through this inga. That means you have to think or done something extremely wrong in order to become a Horror, which this bartender's sin was to having victim complex. Even when her life started to go up, it was still not enough for her, consummed by self pity victim complex and her inga welcomed a Horror due to that.

Final battle was so rad it was reused as the first major battle of season 2

Also, in Garo universe, if you are a self-pitying faggot, 100% you will become a Horror

She is the horror, not that dancer, anon.

I honestly cannot feel bad for any human-turned Horror. Imagine letting inter-dimensional demons take over your body.

I wasn't even talking about the waitress' sins or lack thereof, I'm just saying the dancer's not as innocent as you're claiming her to be. Look at how she treats the other dancers, too.
They're both bitches, man

Though not in the same universe, Vanishing Line explained Horror transformation more or less. The momment you are vulnerable, example, cry about your own circumstance, wanting to have revenge or having some sort of unobtainable desire, the Horror will talk to you, promise you with sweet words. They will help you in a twisted way, and in exchange, they devour your body and your soul. You agreed to commit heinous crimes and made deal with the devil. This explains why Makai Knight usually slay the Horrors with no mercy or hesitation.

Also, in Kougaverse, there was an episode where a grieving man intentionall turned himself into a Horror. The feeling of being a Horror can be described as " the never ending excruciating pain". You must be an absolutely vile individual in order to become a Horror, as your humanity, your feeling pain, remose and morality are all gone.

The bartender was given a chance to pursue her dream, anon. The mean girl actually trusted her and she screwed up, simple as that. This is not how you treat the people who gave you opportunities.

A more cleaner explanation for that (at least for Kouga-verse) is Horror can possess anyone who has immense emotion at that moment. It doesn't matter if it is any positive or negative emotions.
Which is why makai knights and priests are somewhat cold or emotionless at times.

It is not about emotion but more about how those emotion belongs to the Yin-side ( inga ). In Asian belief, Yin represent anything negative, including the sadistic pleasure.

Not sure about priests but for Makai Knight, in Kougaverse, they are unable to transform into Horror, as Horror cannot enter their body.

That didn't work on Kouga, because he was fast enough to evade and deflect the bullets.
>>
>>22466749
It deesn't work means it doesn't work, Kouga was shot multiple times to the legs. He wanted to kill Kouga, not turning him into Horror.

>>22466726
Makai no Hana is set in the same setting and had a priest whose job description is hunt down knights and priests who turned into horrors.
The antagonist of the first show is a knight who turned into a horror.

>>22466691
Slapping her was going too far though.

>knight who turned into a horror
well he didn't actually turn into a horror

>Ryuga hasn't worn Garo since episode 2
I mean I know the series isn't exactly about him, but come on.

Haven't seen his psychic powers in a while, either. What was the deal with that, anyway? Did his mother teach him how to "listen" to objects or was he born with that ability? I don't recall an explanation in the show.

>>22467042
It was just a plot device for Ryuga to tell the audience that someone had character development instead of the writers actually writing any

I miss all of the Garo transformations that Kouga pulled out of his ass

I don't. I prefer Ryuga

>>22468211
I wa joking but it really made zero sense how he was able to bullshit no forms out of nowhere
>>
>Ryuga is so in tune with his inner darkness that he can channel and use darkness with no drawbacks despite being the Golden Knight.
This seems off somehow.
