A summary of the series:
Set in the giant city of Russell, the man with the title of GARO, Makai Knight Sword, protects the city from Horrors that possess humans, fighting in secret. One day while annihilating a Horror, Sword encounters the keyword Eldorad. Believing it to be a large plot of the Horrors, not just eliminating Horrors, he begins an investigation to find the meaning behind it. While doing so, he comes across girl named Sophie. Sophie is looking into the word Eldorad as it was the last message from her brother who went missing. Sophie has lost her brother and Sword lost his younger sister in the past. The word Eldorad pulls them together and they feel an unseeable bond between them, leading them to working together. With those feelings connected, their journey begins.
Seki, who portrays Sword, commented “My first work was as a Horror. Then in the second series, I portrayed the enemy boss, then by the third, I went up the ladder of success (laughs). I just happened to become a big fan by then. I want to strive to bring the best of the series with all I have, without bringing any dishonor to the series.”
