The official website of the fourth TV show in the Garo series, Garo: Makai Flower has been updated with with plot details and character biographies, including that it will begin airing in April.


Coming straight after the news from ZERO: Black Blood earlier this week, Garo Makai Flower will tell the story of the next in the line Garo title; Kouga’s son.

Story as follows…

If the deeds and crimes of the human world are shadow,
there is a flower that blooms with shadow, as if it were light.
When that flower blooms, light will become shadow
and it will be a servant to shadow for eternity.

Excerpt from the Makai Poem Compilation, chapter 99.

A long time ago, the magical beast Alice, once called Messiah’s Tear, was sealed in a stone tablet by the Makai priests, fearing its power. Nine magical beasts had to be used as a foundation. In the present, the stone tablet is displayed in a museum, the abhorrent past long forgotten. One night, a man dressed in black destroys the tablet and the nine Horrors are unleashed into the world.

Raiga Saejima, a Makai Knight belonging to the Blue Jurisdiction, is ordered by Priestess Jiiru to seal Alice again. Alice is hidden in one of the nine Horrors as a seed, waiting for its time to fully bloom. However, a special Madogu (or Makai Knight accessory – i.e Garo’s Zaruba ring) is necessary to seal it. Raiga will be visited by the Senate’s envoy with the Madogu. Using his deduction and action skills, Raiga is able to corner one of the released Horrors, Azdab. Garo and Azdab clash. A young girl, Mayuri, watches. She is the envoy from the Senate.

Will Raiga be able to reseal Alice? What is the Madogu that Mayuri brought from the Senate? What was the intention of the man who destroyed the tablet? Raiga will never give up, overcoming numerous obstacles. Garo, stop Alice’s full bloom!

The cast currently only features one reoccurring character from the previous series, Gonza (Yukijiro Hotaru), the faithful Saejima butler who, as of this new show, will be serving his third generation of Saejima men, all keepers of the title of Garo.
