”including two new TV seasons.”
”he movie will serve as the “Episode 0″ to Garo season 6, also called -GOLD STORM- ”
Season 1 – GARO
Season 2 – MAKAI SENKI
Season 3 – YAMI O
Season 4 – MAKAI NO HANA
Season 5 – ??
Season 6 – -GOLD STORM- Soar
Are we counting the anime as series 5 here? We must be, if -GOLD STORM- Soar is coming out Spring next year.
Either way, great news

They’re either counting the anime or the Zero miniseries.

While I’m here, is the red image in the lower corner for the Makai Opera? Reading Amemiya’s scribbles is hard work.

The anime is season 5, Gold Storm is season 6, and the second anime is season 7. And, yeah, lower corner image is the Makai Opera, not a whole lot was revealed on that one.

Thanks for the reply. Interesting that there’s [seemingly] and awful lot of female silhouettes in that opera. Interesting. Glad Amemiya is doing that Opera [and directing the GOLD film], since next year seems to be the anniversary, but it’s a whole lot of shows he’s not ‘really’ part of. Am I right in thinking he didn’t work on Yami O and the anime?
