Section23 Films has announced that that they will be releasing Garo Special: Beast of the Demon Night (Garo Special Byakuya no Majū) on Blu-Ray on June 26 under their Kraken Releasing label. For those who are not aware, Garo Special: Beast of the Demon Night was a two part special episode that aired in 2006 and would later lead into Garo: Red Requiem. The special will feature the original Japanese audio with English subtitles.
Kraken Releasing provided a synopsis for the two part special:
A soul-stealing plant, a nightmare forest and ancient master Horror are just a few of the deadly challenges that Kouga Saezima must face when a young Makai Priestess interrupts his new assignment with the news that the deceased Priest Amon wishes to speak with him from the other side. Even more shocking is the revelation that Kouga’s childhood friend Jabbi isn’t dead as has long been believed, with her body having been absorbed into a plantlike being called the Makai Tree. Now it’s a race against time as the golden knight Garo must save Jabbi and join forces with Rei, the silver knight Zero, to defeat the newly resurrected Horror Lord Legules… and if they fail, the entire world will be plunged into eternal darkness in GARO SPECIAL – BEAST OF THE DEMON NIGHT!
The special debuted in 2006 as the first installment in the Garo franchise after the original television series.
