Product Description

A world controlled by a sinister brotherhood who hide their fangs behind masks of humanity, known as the Chronos Corporation. While investigating a mysterious explosion near his school, Sho Fukamachi happens upon the Chronos Corporation’s greatest weapon: a techno organic suit of bio armor known as “the Guyver.” But Chronos is determined to conceal their secrets at any cost. Sho soon finds himself relentlessly pursued by its army of horrific bio-monsters. With nowhere to run, Sho is forced to call upon the fearsome power of the Guyver and rip his opponents limb from limb in a desperate struggle for survival.

Amazon.com

The broadcast series Guyver: The Bioboosted Armor (2005) marked the fifth adaptation of Yoshiki Takaya's long-running manga: the animated feature, Guyver: Out of Control (1986) was followed in 1989 by a 12-part OVA; Mark Hamill appeared in two live-action movies in 1992 and 1994. While hanging out by a lake, high school students Sho Fukamachi and Tetsuro Segawa stumble across a curious box. Inside is a futuristic mechanical device that bonds with Sho, transforming him into the redoubtable warrior Guyver I. The two teenagers and Tetsuro's whiny sister Mizuki are caught in the sinister Chronos group's efforts to fulfill the plans of the ancient alien "Creators" to build a race of supersoldiers. Sho fights an increasingly nasty series of "Zoanoid" monsters with some help from a few unlikely allies. As in Dragon Ball, each incredibly powerful monster is replaced by an even more powerful one that also bites the dust crying, "Impossible!" The story line becomes hopeless tangled, with many key points left unexplained. In the last episodes, Sho disintegrates, only to reappear a year later in a mysterious chrysalis. The series borrows heavily from other anime shows and live-action films, including Star Wars, The Terminator, and Close Encounters of the Third Kind. Although Guyver: The Bioboosted Armor was made in 2005, the designs and inept storytelling feel like a throwback to the '80s. But Guyver has been an important continuity, and its influence can be seen in series as recent as Witchblade.

It's not exactly one of the better anime titles out there, but it's still a lot of fun.

Background you can skip
I was, as a teen, captured by the Guyver Manga comics which, back then, were really hard to get (I lived in Holland and it was the 80's). Somehow my older brother was able to get them and shared them with me. Then, a few years after, I got Guyver on video (the first anime of this series). It really brought Guyver to life for me and I became a big fan. Naturally I also got the Guyver feature movies on video but that is a whole other story and I will not go into that here.To make a long story short: this is a remake of the original Anime of Guyver that, I believe, stems back to the mid 80's. This remake was done in 2005.
The story is brutal and intriguing as it progresses through increasing levels of attack and opponents that get stronger by the episode. It's never clear upfront whether Guyver will or will not win and the story does not get repetitive. There are a few 'quiet' episodes but overall this series deserves the large fan base and the remake.

About this 2005 remake of Guyver:Bioboosted Armor
Here are a few key anime stats that might satisfy those shopping for this item:
- 26 episodes
- total of 625 minutes of anime
- 4 DVD's in a single cover
- you can have as English or Japanese voice over
- TVMA: yes, I know Funimation tends to clean up gore, but this series was left intact. The blood flows richly, bodies get sliced in half and heads are blown off. Not for kids. Note that I bought the item on Amazon advertised as the Viridian Collection, in case Amazon switches pics or items. TVMA= TV Mature Audience

About the actual anime
For those of you that never saw the original series: this one is at a faster pace and much more gory. The English voice acting is actually very very good.

Guyver is an anime adaptation of a 1980's manga and an early 1990's Mark Hamill movie. Sadly the movie was dumb. The anime is a different story. I was totally rocked by this series. There are tons of cool fight scenes. Lots of good villains and heroes. The voice acting is good and the animation is also pretty good. There is really good character development and some emotional scenes. This series also has lots of action to keep you interested.

I can't think of anything bad to say about Guyver. It's one you can watch several times and not get bored. It's not exactly one of the better anime titles out there, but it's still a lot of fun. I recommend giving it a try. I hope you like it as much as I do.

The story moves rather quickly action starts off from episode 1 it is a great Sc-fi-Action Anime.
Monsters Disguised as humans, Evil Corperation controling evil plots, Super Heros that are anti-hero's this has got it all. Guyver a Boy who quickly must become a man and relize his ultimite destiny and with his friends help take down chronos the evil corpration doing inhuman things to humans and bent on world domination.
If you have seen any of the Orginal OVA's or even read the manga I think you will enjoy this remake. If you have not you will enjoy the Sci-fi and action. It is cut into 26, 30 min episodes with a bonus disc of some neat extra features. This Remake is very Violent Gorey,some very Brief Nudity and some strong language.

I am a HUGE Guyver fan I have always been. I found this at a DVD shop down in FOrt Gordon Georgia while I was in-Army-Advanced Individual Training (AIT). Excellant I was very pleased when I got it I had to watch it first chance I got, but my computer sucked for some reason and I had to wait until I got home 9 months later!!! :( But When I got home I did watch it and it was superb. A great as I thought it was going to be as I've seen the first half as rentals from Block Buster before I left for Basic Training in 2008. Years later I still watch the entire series in one sitting. I love Guyver one of the greatest series out there it had inspired me in my writing so much.

Although I don't understand the difference in the two box sets: Guyver: The Complete Series (Viridian Collection). I don't get it they both half the same amount of DVDs in the collection and the only difference is the Viridian Collection has 50 more mins of play time. Of what I cannot say as I own this box set version. Their both from Funimation Productions. So whats the difference? Can someone enlighten me on the topic?

This latest version of Guyver is truely a MAGNIFICANT work of anime. I enjoyed the revision of the story line. It does answer alot of questions I had before, but now my questions have been answered and explained somethings that I missed. The main music theme for The Guyver, Waiting For... by Yo Reiri, is HOT. I loved this song so much that I actually bought the soundtrack and play this song at least four times daily. But I wish the Japanesse writers would continue this version with an conclusional ending. I think its kind of crude to remake the Guyver,each time, only to add more details about the characters lives and not come forth with an ending. I have been a FAN of anime since 1990 and love every year of it, but recently each anime have been increasingly known to stop without a conclusion. Its beginning to get irritating. Although irritated, I will always LOVE anime and The Guyver.

No point to edit it. Show wasn't that violent in the first place. This horrible version of guyver had little violence compared to the original series and oav. So to answer your question, no.
