Garo: Yami o Terasu Mono (japanese, tokusatsu)

Yami o Terasu Mono takes place at some undetermined point in the future in Vol City (ボルシティ Boru Shiti?), a metropolis build around a volcano and infested by evil demons known as Horrors. Ryuga Dougai, a Makai Knight who has inherited the title of Garo the Golden Knight, is tasked to hunt them down. However, the Garo Armor had long lost its golden radiance and it's not as powerful as it used to be. Joining forces with fellow Makai Knights Aguri and Takeru, along Makai Priests Burai and Rian, Ryuga confronts the dark side of the city that is plagued by a rare breed of Horrors called Madō Horrors (魔導ホラー Madō Horā?), and the mystery behind why a portion of the Garo Armor's golden light is restored every time he destroys one of them.

After watching the first two seasons of Garo, truthfully I missed them while watching this. There's not much link to the first 2 seasons, but hopefully, the new season will link them. But despite it all, the 3rd season was fresh and different although I felt the action was better for the previous 2, although it's understandable since the garo in season 3 is young and inexperienced.

Loved all the cast, they did a wonderful job but have to admit, I had to forward a little at times as it got a little boring for me but all in all, a good season. But I still miss the cast for the first 2 seasonsss:(
