Garo Movie: Divine Flame is an extension of the Garo anime series, and I have mixed feelings about it. Here's my review, categorized by different aspects: Story (3/10): The story of Divine Flame feels like an attempt to continue the narrative from the original series. However, it lacks the depth and intrigue that the series had. It follows the same formula of Horrors (demonic creatures) attacking and the Makai Knights coming to the rescue. While the action scenes are decent, the plot feels forced, and the pacing is uneven. It's a missed opportunity to expand on the Garo universe in a meaningful way. Animation (6/10): The animation quality is one of the movie's better aspects. It maintains the dark and gritty aesthetic of the Garo series. The action sequences are well-animated, and the character designs are consistent with the series. However, there's nothing particularly outstanding or innovative about the animation that sets it apart from the TV series. Sound (5/10): The sound in Divine Flame is serviceable but not exceptional. The background music serves its purpose during action scenes, but it doesn't leave a lasting impression. Voice acting is decent, with returning characters maintaining their consistency, but there aren't any standout performances. Overall, the sound does its job but doesn't elevate the movie. Characters (4/10): One of the movie's drawbacks is the lack of character development. While it's great to see familiar faces from the series, their arcs and interactions feel stagnant. There's a missed opportunity to explore their growth or delve into their backstories further. The introduction of new characters also falls flat, as they don't add much depth to the narrative. Overall (4/10): Garo Movie: Divine Flame is a somewhat disappointing addition to the Garo franchise. While it maintains the visual style and action elements of the series, it falls short in terms of storytelling and character development. If you're a fan of the Garo series, you might find some enjoyment in it for the sake of continuity, but it doesn't bring anything substantially new or exciting to the table. My overall score for this movie is 4/10.
