Garo: Soukoku no Maryu

After the events of Makai Flash Knight, Kouga Saezima appears before Gajari to honor the pact he forged in order to stop Sigma Fudō from killing all the Makai Knights. Kouga is given the task to travel to the Promised Land (約束の地, Yakusoku no Chi) to retrieve a part of Gajari: the Fang of Sorrow (嘆きの牙, Nageki no Kiba). However, upon his arrival into the Forest of Chaos (混沌の森, Konton no Mori), Kouga finds himself without his coat and Zaruba nowhere to be seen before seeing the Garoken turned into the Red Dog (赤ノ犬, Aka no Inu) before running off. Confronting a group of tin knights called Swordmen of the Wind (風の剣士, Kaze no Kenshi) escorting a picture frame, Kouga obtains a sword when they are attacked by a formless monster, a Nanashi (ナナシ). Once the two surviving knights run off, Kouga sees a blue skinned girl emerging from the picture frame. The girl introduces herself as Meru and that she is like every resident in the Promised Land: A living object. Meru proceeds to explain that she was captured to be taken to Green Castle (緑ノ城, Midori no Shiro) as an offering to Queen Judam. Despite being warned of the danger, Kouga is guided to the Temple of Wisdom (知恵の祠, Chie no Hokora) by Meru to find out where to find the Fang of Sorrow.

Once there, Kouga encounters a fading scarecrow-like entity that transforms into a human-like form when he unintentionally named him “Kakashi”. After Kakashi takes his leave, learning that he is in the Hill of Nothingness (虚空の丘, Kokū no Oka) graveyard of those who lost their names and forms, Kouga and Meru are forced to run from the Nanashi reacting to the event. Once at the shrine, Kouga finds that its Guardian of Wisdom (知恵ノ番人, Chie no Ban’nin) is Zaruba who has no memory of Kouga and assumes a large form to reflect Kouga’s imagination to have the human fight him for what he wants to know. Eventually, Zaruba remembers Kouga and revert to original form. Zaruba proceeds to reveal that Kouga’s arrival has caused a time dilation and that he has served as the guardian for centuries before being reunited. Before anything else can be settled, Kouga calls out the mysterious gnome-like object that has been following them. Introducing himself as Kiria from the Land of Bliss (至福の大地, Shifuku no Daichi), he pleas Kouga for his help. Learning about the Maryu, a dark dragon that creates nothingness in its path and would emerge once the moon is completely black, Kouga and the others come to the suspected conclusion that the monster’s fang is also the Fang of Sorrow. However, Kouge feels that finding his items should be his first priority before defeating the Maryu.

Once at the Land of Bliss, finding himself dancing with Meru, Kouga encounters Kakashi who provokes him into a duel before the harpy-like White Bird (白ノ鳥, Shiro no Tori) appears. Revealed to be Kouga’s coat, the harpy flies off with Kouga in pursuit while Kakashi follows after him. However, the three are captured by the Green Castle with Kouga meeting Judam and voicing his opinions on her heartless behavior for what she considers ugly and lustful greed for beautiful things. By then, thanks to Kakashi’s trusted canine companion Kuromaru steering their Halloween-ish Blue Palace (青ノ館, Ao no Yakata) house into the Green Castle, Kouga frees his coat and Kakashi so they can escape. After learning he needs the Garoken for his coat to recognize him, Kouga learns of Kakashi’s plans to merge with the Maryu to become human. However, Judam took the Maryu scale needed for the fusion. But upon learning Kouga intends to kill the Maryu, Kakashi decides to finish their duel when Kiria arrives. Unfortunately, Kouga and Kiria find the Land of Bliss in ruins with the former helping the latter remember his best friend Raudo after he died. The two then find another survivor named Daruki, who reveals that Judam took Meru as an offering to the Maryu.

At the Seas of Lamentation (嘆きの海, Nageki no Umi), before dangling her above the vortex the Maryu is to emerge from, Judam reveals to a humanized Meru her intention to exact revenge on humans even if she must sacrifice her only beauty by merging with the Maryu to do so. However, as Kakashi makes an attempt to reclaim the scale in a battle between his house and Judam’s castle, Kiria saves Meru while Kouga sees the Garoken and reclaims the weapon. Seeing a ghost of Taiga appearing before him while regaining his coat, Kouga arrives to save Kakashi after his house is destroyed before making his way to the Green Castle to face Judam. Seeing her memory wiping against the human, Judam battles Kouga as she reveals that she will merge with the Maryu to enter the human world and destroy humanity for discarding her into the Promised Land. Kouga attempts to reason with Judam, but she refuses to listen as she uses the Maryu’s scale transform into a small dragon. Despite its size, the Maryu quickly creates a giant mechanical construct around itself.

Garo: Soukoku no Maryu

The story continues after the events of Makai Senki. Having made a contract with Gajari (to stop Sigma Fudō from killing all the Makai Knights), Kouga Saejima honors his end of the deal by traveling to the Promised Land (約束の地, Yakusoku no Chi?) to retrieve a part of Gajari: the Fang of Sorrow (嘆きの牙, Nageki no Kiba?). After Kouga defeated Sigma, Gajari transported him to the Promised Land, however, his quest had unexpected results.

As soon as Kouga reaches to the Promised Land, he becomes separated from his duster, sword, and Zaruba. Not long exploring, Kouga encounters a group of tin soldiers, defeated them in battle, and freed a blue-skinned girl named Meru. From Meru, Kouga learns that the Promised Land is the realm of forgotten objects and that all entities that exist within this realm are spiritual versions of real life forgotten objects in the human realm. He also learns about Judam, the Queen of Green, a dark object that collects and consumes beautiful objects and destroys all in her path. Despite the danger, Kouga wanted a way to find the Fang of Sorrow; Meru didn’t know anything of it, but suggested to seek the Guardian of Wisdom to possibly learn more. Despite the warnings of danger, Kouga insisted to go and Meru acted as his guide to the Temple of Wisdom.


Garo: Soukoku no Maryu

While traveling, Kouga found a fading scarecrow-like entity and accidentally restored him by giving him a name (objects without names will fade out of existence and become forgotten), Kakashi. The newly restored Kakashi returns to his home, where his trusty friend dog-like object, Kuromaru, awaited for his return. Kakashi plans to merge with the dark entity known as the Maryuu to become human and live amongst humanity, however, Judam took his special scale to merge with Maryuu and the duo fly off from their Halloween-themed fortress to search for Judam.

Meanwhile, with the help of Meru, Kouga made it to the Temple of Wisdom to speak with its guardian. To his surprise, the guardian is Zaruba. As the guardian, Zaruba couldn’t remember Kouga and had taken a gargantuan warrior form to cross swords with Kouga. Eventually though, Zaruba remembered Kouga and he returned to his ring form. It was there he explained that Kouga’s arrival caused a time dilation and that he has served as the guardian for centuries before being reunited. Before anything else can be settled, Kouga called out the mysterious gnome-like object that has been following them.

Kiria (a gnome-like archer) has come for Kouga to help him battle against Maryuu (a dark entity that destroys all in its path). While traveling together, the party compared notes of what they know and everyone came to the suspected conclusion that the Maryuu’s Fang is also the Fang of Sorrow; Kouga determines to find a means to collect Maryuu’s Fang in order to fulfill his mission.

At the Land of Bliss, Kouga and company re-encounters Kakashi. It is there the two started a duel and was disrupted when Kouga’s duster appears in the form of a harpy. Determined to get his duster back, he gives chase along with Kakashi. Unfortunately, their chase resulted in Judam capturing them. However, Kouga escapes capture, liberated Kakashi, and the two escaped off on Kakashi’s flying fortress. Unfortunately, Meru was captured as they escaped. It was during Meru’s capture that Judam tells Meru of her intention of merging with the Maryuu to enter the human realm to take her vengeance upon humanity.

Some time later, Kouga and company launches an attack upon Judam’s fortress to rescue Meru. The initial attack was successful and Meru returned back to their side. While Kakaishi’s flying fortress battles against Judam’s flying fortress, Kouga notices Garo-ken (Garo Sword) nearby and fought to regain his weapon. After a difficult battle, Kouga won back his sword and original equipment. Now ready to fight Judam, Kouga seeks out Judam for a showdown.

Now fighting Judam, Kouga was curious know why she wanted to merge with the Maryuu. She explained (while still battling Kouga) that she was the product of human imagination and was discarded for it; she wants punish humanity for her existence and then discarding her. Not long, using the scale, she merged with Maryuu and became a powerful mechanical dragon. However, with Kouga having his equipment back, he became Garo and battled against her.

Kouga was initially losing, but with the help from Meru, Kiria, and Kakashi, Garo was able to hold back against the Maryuu Dragon. However, Garo was losing until Kakashi used the last of his energies to give Garo a powerful boost. Riding on a super powered version of Gouten, Garo darts through the Maryuu Dragon and Kouga successfully defeats Judam. Just before Judam is defeated, Kouga asks for Judam’s forgiveness against humanity and she accepts before being obliterated.

Back on the Promised Land, Kouga tends to the dying Kakashi. It was there he revealed himself as a wooden doll that was used to train young Makai Knights in training; Kouga credits him for his part in making who he is. Before he fully disappears, he says he can come back, so long as he’s found and remade once more. Not long, both Kiria (pen) and Kumokuro (stuff animal) were rediscovered by their owners and their spirit returned to the real world counterparts. The only one left standing is Meru.

Towards the ending, the final piece that was thought to be part of Gajari was false. Kouga realized he is the true Fang of Sorrow. Meru was confused and Kouga explained to Meru that Gajari was a product of humanity’s imagination as well as the Makai Knights; the whole quest was a spiritual-philosophical circle of life. Gajari appeared and congratulated Kouga for figuring out his role within the Promised Land and honored his part to send him back. Just before Kouga returns, Meru reveals she’s actually the dragonfish Rekka gave to Kouga, named after his girlfriend, Kaoru. Kouga then returns to the human realm, where he is reunited with Kaoru once again.

Meanwhile, during this whole time, the other Makai Knights (Tsubasa, Rei, and Reo) participated in a battle competition for the chance to visit a person from the Land of the Dead. Rei ultimately won that competition, but wanted to test his strength against Kouga as the unofficial “final battle” for the chance to see a dead loved one. Kouga accepted the battle and the two fought, but during the fight Rei hinted he encountered someone and Taiga’s (Kouga’s father) spirit appeared before him. Rei wondered if he can handle a two on one battle; Kouga smirked and welcomed the battle. As the scene fades away, it focuses on a long forgotten wooden trainer doll, suggesting that this very doll is Kakashi.
