Garu is a 12 year old boy (Turns 13 in the Episode "Cursed Tie"). He is the deuteragonist in the Pucca series, playing the unwilling love interest of Pucca. He is a skilled, shy, and a quite serious-natured ninja who is Abyo's best friend.
Pucca and Garu's Relationship
Pucca and Garu's relationship is one of the main focus of the series, both the Flash series and the TV series. It can be debated whether or not Garu returns feelings of affection towards Pucca since he is constantly running away from her, however it can be argued that he is just shy or embarrassed and is too dedicated to his training to worry about his feelings for her. Considering that Garu is only 12 - 13 years old, he may not even recognize his already existing, maybe growing, feelings for her.
In Full Moon Pucca, he becomes lovestruck with Pucca when she pulls the moon down, but in the end she gets tired of Garu constantly harassing her and lets the moon go changing him to his normal self.
In the third season (Pucca: Love Recipe), there are times when Garu doesn't attempt to run away from Pucca when she kisses him and in one episode he willing kisses her so he can help restore Pucca's memories of him and her friends.
