Garo Gaiden: Tougen no Fue (aka Garo Side Story: Whistle of the Phantom Peach) is the fourth Garo movie, which was released in July of 2013.
Long ago, a fallen Makai Priestess, known as Higari, was tampering with questionable powers no one should wield; she had to be stopped and was eventually sealed away by another Makai Priest named Sougen. In a magical battle between priests, Sougen created eight melody notes to contain Higari. Using his own body and sacrificing himself to create the eighth musical note, he created the Tougen Flute and sealed Higari shortly after his death. However, through a special ritual, those who seek Higari's power can resurrect her by replaying the eight notes on the Tougen Flute to undo Sougen's seal. In the present, while Kouga Saezima has traveled to the Promised Land (during the events of Demon Dragon of the Blue Cries), two fallen priests will attempt to return Higari.
Agi and Magi are Makai Priestesses and lesbian lovers. Magi is suffering from a unspecified terminal illness and Agi swears to find a means to cure her so both of them can be together. By discovering the remains of Higari, the two summoned her and used her power to sustain Magi. However, they must serve Higari. Once the two resurrect Higari, the duo are rewarded with immortality. To complete the resurrection though, they need to find a priest who can see the remains of Sougen as a flute and not a set of bones.
Eventually, Magi finds Rekka, while Agi finds Jabi; both priests are suitable candidates to return Higari. The dark duo tricks Jabi and Rekka, each telling them a partial truth of the Tougen Flute's nature and that a fallen priest seeks to use the flute for dark purposes. Through a series of misunderstandings (caused by the dark duo), Jabi and Rekka think of each other as the fallen priest. However, the two eventually figure out the truth and rejoin as allies.
In a final battle between Agi and Magi, the two are no match for Jabi and Rekka. Magi continues to be desperate to live and sacrifices Agi to complete Higari's resurrection. However, Higari lied; she devoured both Agi and Magi and returned as a monstrous flying black-white mask, attacking Rekka and Jabi. Ultimately, the two utilize a powerful "Phoenix Flame Attack" and defeat Higari. Afterwards, the two place the Agi and Magi's wands over in a shrine and hope they find peace in the afterlife. The story ends with Jabi and Rekka teaming up again for extensive combat training..
