Comment by Masahiro Inoue (Zinga)
I was happy to do work with Garo Team. In this warm hearted filming, Director Amemiya who doesn't compromise, staff who support that with their all and me as the actor want to contribute even a little with all sincerity.
After reading the script, I felt that this movie will be the complete of Wataru Kuriyama's Ryuga Dogai Series. For fans to enjoy while talking with Amemiya Director & Kuriyama-kun without any compromise we continue to make this.
Since the premiere is next year 2018, please wait for the movie.
Comment by Tsunenori Aoki (Aguri Kusugami / Gai)
When I was offered the role, a little time has passed since "Yami no Terasu mono". I was curious about how my character will return back. Because this time Director Amemiya was the one to directed this, I felt like we are filming a new work and I learnt a lot from this. But when it comes to Action part, the heat, the scale, the force made me nostalgic and it was also hard (laughs).
I felt a little sad because the atmosphere of "Yami no Terasu mono" wasn't there anymore but "-GOLD STORM- Sho" Member accepted us warm heardtedly so I was able to blend in smoothly.
I have worked in many Tokusatsu works and because of that experience, I was able to synthesis it in Aguri Kusugami in this time's Garo. I was also able to new parts in Action. Please wait for the movie!
Comment by Junya Ikeda (Takeru Jakuzure / Zen)
When I heard about the offer I was greatly surprised and happy. I was happy to play that sweet but adorable character once again. There was also lot of pressure to reach the expectations of the viewers. I was a bit anxious that I would be a little nervous & also a bit confused before the filming but the moment when I jumped into the Garo World, that thought dissappeared and I felt like I back to that time.
During Filming Action Scenes I felt nostalgic with the thought "Yes, Garo was like this!". I also felt the harshness & astonishment. (Laughs). The scene where the Three Knights → Ryuga, Aguri and me stand together is just Spectacular in a word.
The power of different viewers from the past has now increased and it left a sophisticated impression in me. You'll get connected with only the coolness straight from the screen. You'll get Knocked Out from the Power of the movie.
When you have finished watching the movie, I am sure that your hands will be in sweat and from inside you'll feel the heat. Please wait with your expectations!
Comment by Wataru Kuriyama (Ryuga Dogai / Garo)
During the time of "Yami wo Terasu mono" there was no thought of moving forward with the two (Tsunenori Aoki & Junya Ikeda) but this time I had decided to move forward with them. As Ryuga and also as Wataru Kuriyama, I wanted to show them the growth. I was nervous a bit but they have made good use of their characters. In order to keep them relaxed I did my best.
I have good friendship with Ma-kun (Masahiro Inoue) and when I received the script, I discussed with him a lot. I also talked with the director and many others and created the current work. It difficult to imagine how would "Team Yami wo Terasu mono" & "-GOLD STORM- Sho" Team will intersect but I think it was a good chemistry.
Because I myself did all the Action Scenes (had used no stunt actors), Director Amemiya and Director Yokoyama's Trust towards me had increased. I have confidence that we have filmed a good action scene. This time the characters are more so you'll experience & enjoy different action scenes each time. Please wait & enjoy!
It's not known Miki Nanri who plays Rian the Heroine of Ryuga Dogai Series will reprise her role in the movie. Hironobu Kageyama will reprise as the Voice of Zaruba.
The movie will premiere in 2018 and might mark the final chapter of Ryuga Dogai Series. The Movie is Directed and Written by GARO's creator Keita Amemiya. Makoto Yokoyama will be the Action Director. More characters, cast & guest stars will be announced soon. The Theme Song of the movie is likely to be by JAM Project.
