Plot Summary

to be added



  • Viewers get a version of backstory as to what Zaruba is. It is revealed that he is a Horror's soul sealed inside a Madou Ring. For some unknown reason he is an ally to humanity and has existed since the Garo Armor was built long ago. This means that there is a possibility that there are at least a few Horrors who are not evil.
    • This may or may not contradict with his origin in the first series, as he was "created" by the Makai Priest Amon. Though this could be interpreted that Zaruba's "body" has needed frequent repair over the centuries.
  • The process of how Madougu are made in this time period is shown.
