I had heard about director Keita Amemiya’s fantasy flick “Garo and the Wailing Dragon” last year, though I’d honestly forgotten all about it. However, it was recently brought to my attention that the film had dropped a new trailer earlier this month. Since I have nothing better to do on a Saturday night, I decided to check it out. Simply put: I’m intrigued.
Granted, I’m not overly familiar with the “Garo” films or the television series. I’ve seen “Red Requiem,” though I always felt I was missing something. Or maybe there was nothing there to miss. No matter — the visuals in the “Garo and the Wailing Dragon” trailer have seriously piqued my interest. If it turns out the story is as deep as a bowl of cereal, then I’ll just turn off my brain and watch the pretty people jumping around in front of green screens.
Have a look at this synopsis:
In order to protect humankind, Kouga Saezima makes a contract with powerful Kazari. Kouga Saezima travels to the land of promise to bring back the Nageki no Kiba (Fang of Sorrow). When he gets there, Kouga Saezim loses the Garo sword, magic clothes and the Mado ring, which he always carry when he fights. Then, Kouga Saezima in a dense forest saves a girl called Meru. She calls herself the “thing”.
Warning: You may permanently damage your tender senses with all of the stimuli found in the trailer embedded below. I will not be held responsible for any drooling, confusion, or hallucinations you experience as a result of ingesting said video. I’m just putting that out there. All joking aside, this shouldn’t be any more overwhelming than a Disney trailer.
“Garo and the Wailing Dragon” is slated to open in Japan on February 23. When you’re ready, take a trip into the trailer below.
