Garo: Crimson Moon is a animated television series that heavily draws upon many diverse Japanese historical influences, most notably from the late Heian Period (the period named after the modern city of Kyoto). Another show titled Garo, was released a year prior to Garo: Crimson Moon, however there are few similarities between the two save for tone, style and the role of the protagonist; the story of the first Garo is not continued in Crimson Moon. The story revolves around a young, intense and brooding man named Raikou who roams the land, protecting innocents from the "Horrors." Horrors, known traditionally as the Mononoke, are evil, warped aberrations, skeletal, demonic beings that absorb and devour the souls of the living. The Mononoke are particularly drawn to the souls of those whom are corrupt or obsessed, such as those who have performed murder or similar, unsightly deeds. In his travels the brave Raikou meets a mysterious and stoic young woman named Seimei, a mage whose mission is similar to his own. Together they travel the land, combating the horrors and protecting the innocent through the use of Raikou's immensely powerful, yet erratic ring that manifests a special suit of armor that allows him to decimate the mononoke.
