Guyver -The Bioboosted Armor: Complete Box Set

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.

- 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.

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.Read more ›
Aside from quality, this is a very fun and amazing story line and show. I've been a fan for years but anyone looking for a good show about a normal guy thrown into a word that he has to become a hero, this is the way to go.
Animation - Fluid and fast. The voices sync up nicely with the characters and the alien/human hybrids look out of this world. This anime definitely deserves a spot in collection just for the animation's goriness.
Voice acting - Top notch and makes the whole scenes just make you wait in anticipation of what's going to be revealed.
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.
For me, the trade off of more story in exchange for the violence is one I can appreciate. I would have liked it if this show had some more skull crushing action, but I'd take a completed story arc over that any day of the week.
