In commemoration of the franchise’s 10th year, Tohoku gleefully revealed that the year 2015 will bear witness to a big slew of Garo productions taking underway. The first project announced is Garo: GOLD STORM – Soar, a theatrical follow-up to 2013’s TV spinoff Garo: Yami No Terasu Mono(The One Who Shines In The Darkness), and will serve as a bridge leading to the latter’s second season, GOLD STORM. It is scheduled to air in Japan come Spring of 2015.

It was also mentioned that a second season has been ordered as well for the currently ongoing Garo: The Animation(commonly known to fans as Honoo no Kokuin, or The Carved Seal of Flames). The first to feature a plot unrelated to the main continuity of the saga, it tells the story of Leon Luis, a young man who is shaped by his father to become a strong Golden Knight, whilst engulfed in a scheme to decimate all Makai Knights and take over the Kingdom of Valiante.

Furthermore, Tohoku added that a sequel movie for 2014’s Garo season, Makai No Hana is now undergoing initial production phase, with its lead actor Masei Nakayama set to reprise his role as Raiga Saejima. A spinoff special entitled Biku: Yamigirinochi had been announced as well, featuring Makai No Hana’s character Biku. Finally, the reveal event closes with the announcement of Makai Opera, a musical directed by series brainchild Keita Anemiya.
