Question Guyver: The Bioboosted Armor

Guyver: The Bioboosted Armor is marked as licensed by ADV, but I thought it have already been licensed to Manga some years back (I have all 12 ep).... so is this a new version of the same series or is it being re-licensed?!

(note: I have the UK version of the series, so am not sure if it was ever released in the US).

The original OAV set out to show us what the Guyver would look like animated, and thats just what it did. With great music, and great battle scenes.. it did well for the year it was made. A classic for me.

Then you had the 12 episode series in the early 90's. It didn't hold everything from the manga, but it got across the main plot from the manga, and everything that happened.. but yes it did stop half way through the story.

Now, you have the new series, which tells you the story from the manga, and doesn't leave anything out at all, and of course a lot more information was found out then what was given from the 12 part series. It stopped at around volume 10 of the manga, and with it still going on past volume 17 in Japan, you can see a second season appearing sometime next year.

Looking forward to its R1 release~

Guyver: The Bioboosted Armor

Linky~

I'll say it, i'm shocked how well the site looks.. ADV have really gone all out with the release of Guyver: The Bioboosted Armor. With this being the perfect Guyver anime adaptation to date, i'm glad to see that its getting the good treatment for its US release.

Also, ADV have given the release date for the first volume (11/14/2006), also - the sexy looking front cover can be seen here.

Hopefully, with good sales.. the rest of the story shall be told in a second season, only time shall tell.

What he's saying is when the new Guyver tv series was being made it didn't have any gore or blood in like the previous ova's had done.

Guyver Out of Control is my favourite adaptation. It was the first and the best. It was darker than the manga, had a WOMAN controlling Guyver II and one of the best soundtracks of it's era.

I heard ADV will contemplating licensing Guyver: Out of Control, lets hope they do.

Not sure if it was mentioned but, they released a sneak peak (the first episode) of the dubbing for the english release of the recent guyver series.

http://tv.ign.com/articles/732/732809p1.html

More details in the article. Hopefully they'll have the incentive to support the continuation.

My IE crashed near the end of the ED and it was attributed to me not updating my Flash Player. So maybe you guys may want to check to see if your browser is compatible with Adobe Flash Player before watching it.

Well I happened to stumble across this remake accidentally and I am SO glad I did. Its one of my first and favorite manga/anime series. I remember finding the manga at a local bookstore years ago and loved it even though I never really found out what happened later. Ive seen the original series but discovering this modern remake was a very pleasant surprise.

Anyway about this one, it looks really good and I loved it. The animation and overall style is really nice and it doesnt look like they tried to cut any corners. Its been a while since I read the manga but I think its pretty close even though not exact. Another season of this would just be kickass. Now just to wait for a properly subbed version...

BTW Im also very surprised this thread isnt longer, I guess people just dont know the good news yet...

Remake from what I heard is a more adaption to the manga's, as well as the short novels that were released. I've seen pretty much the whole series of the remake, and it's done very nicely in my opinion, they ended it at a nice spot not dwelling much into the bigger issues that are seen later.

Only thing that sort of let me down was the red-head that was mentioned in the novels never appeared, but I guess you can't afford everything. But currently at the stage where guyver is, the series can go anyway in terms of a final- it's like the sci-fi version of berserk sorta.

Late answer to the question, but in the novels released there was mention of a perspective of murakami saving a red headed girl that supposely had a crush on sho (unsure if it was mentioned that she saw him transform), I think one of the newer zoanoids we see early in the series was based off the zoanoid that murakami kills.

When I was reading the manga before it was put on hiatus in the states, I was kinda hoping of a heroine switch since mizuki was a pain in the ass before the events of X-Day/time skip.

I wish I had the novels myself to elaborate better, but me finding those things would probably be the same as my hunt of the five (or more) Chaos Legion novels.

Guyver The Bio Boosted Armor (2005-2006)

65 million years ago, an alien race known only as the Creators came to Earth to develop bioweapons. After experimenting with and creating new life forms, they created humans and used them as the base for powerful shapeshifting creatures called Zoanoids, which are the basis for werewolf myths and other such stories. The Guyver itself existed prior to these experiments and was used by the Creators as a space suit of sorts, and through an experiment, a human being activated a dormant Guyver unit and became the very first human Guyver, dubbed Guyver Zero. Guyver 0 surpassed all expectations, the effect of the Bio-Boosted Armour on a human being, which was developed for war, was far greater than the effect on the aliens. Unfortunately, the host was physically uncontrollable, and thus dubbed "Guyver", which meant "Out of Control" in the Creators' language. The Creators sent the leader of the Zoanoids, a powerful Zoalord called Alkanphel to combat Guyver 0, and gave him a Unit-Remover, a tool to revert a Guyver back to the unbonded Unit-G form. Alkanphel removed the unit from Guyver 0 and incinerated the human who was in possession of the very first Unit under the Creators' command. But the Creators were now afraid. They decided to destroy humans by throwing a Moon-sized asteroid at Earth, eliminating all traces of their experiments. Alkanphel managed to destroy the asteroid, but not before the Creators unleashed a telepathic attack on Alkanphel's mind severely weakening his powers and body.

Alkanphel survived for millions of years in a stasis sleep within a ship of the Creators heavily damaged by Guyver 0, waiting for the day he'd be strong enough to rise again. He is in a weakened state and must rest often, especially if he uses his powers. It is believed a Guyver unit would not only restore him, but make him by far the strongest being in creation as he already is bestowed with the powers of the strongest of all Zoalords. 400 years ago, he encountered Hamilcal Balcas, who helped him found the Chronos Corporation. Archanfel made Balcas the first of twelve Zoalords, beings of vast psychic power, with the ability to transform into battle forms that are all but invincible. By creating their own Zoanoids from any available subjects, Chronos can place obedient sleeper agents anywhere they wish, and activate them all at once to take over the world.

Chronos discovered three, dormant, surviving Bio-Booster units (Unit-Gs), but a Test Type Zoanoid referred to as a "Malmot" (the Japanese term for guinea pig) stole the Unit-Gs and escaped from Chronos. In the Bandai OVA version, Malmot stole the Unit-Gs for Agito Makishima under the premise that he would be restored to his former self. During a foray with Chronos' troops, the Malmot caused an explosion that scattered the Unit-Gs across the forest they were in. Out of the three units, Chronos only recovered one,

a second year high school student Sho Fukamachi, out with his friend Tetsuro Segawa, found one of the units. After accidentally pressing the control medal, it violently bonded with him, transforming him into Guyver I.

Having the Guyver makes Sho a constant target of Chronos, who first goes after him, then later uses his family and friends as hostages. Sho and his friends gradually learn more about the Guyver and its origins as the story progresses, and even witness the culmination of Chronos's world domination plans, forcing them to fight to free the world from oppression.

Guyver weapons

Sonic orbs (two orbs at the Guyver's mouth that produce head exploding sound waves)

The Mega-Smasher (Two high-power particle cannons contained beneath the Guyver's chest armour) It should be noted that the Mega-Smasher is considered, in Guyver canon, to be the most powerful particle beam weapon in existence on Earth. It has been shown heavily gauging Mount Minakami, as proof of its raw power

http://img147.imageshack.us/img147/2002/02or6.jpg

Head Laser (A multi-directional laser mounted just above the control metal on the Guyver's head) More commonly referred to as the Headbeam.

http://img151.imageshack.us/img151/4848/04zu9.jpg

High Frequency Swords (Blades that extend from the Guyver's forearms. These blades vibrate at an extremely high frequency allowing them to cut through almost any material with ease.)

http://img182.imageshack.us/img182/8559/06is0.jpg

Gravity globe (The purpose of the gravity globe is to siphon gravitational energy from a higher dimension.
Two main uses include giving the Guyver the ability to fly and to unleash destructive gravity waves in the form of a directed "Pressure Cannon". It can also be used as a one way shield.)

http://img132.imageshack.us/img132/6225/033io6.jpg

the control metal (located on the Guyver's forehead) that regulates the armour - and prevents the organism from literally eating its host alive. It also records the genetic structure, and memories of its host, so that if the host is injured or killed, it regenerates that host from even the smallest bits of genetic material. If the control metal is destroyed, the Unit absorbs its host. The control metal has tentacles that reach into the host's brain, and is the hard wiring of the Unit that allows the host to use the systems of the Guyver.

What is a Zoanoid?



The Cronos Corporation has discovered the technology to give humans the ability to transform into superhuman, monsters soldiers. These 'normal' Zoanoids are the cannon-fodder of the series, and are constantly getting destroyed left and right.

When killed, their bodies disintegrate into little more than wisps of vapor and damp spots on the ground, so there are no bodies - human or monster - left which can be used as proof of what's going on.

Initially most Zoanoids we run across are members of Cronos, but the Corporation is also experimenting with ways to involuntarily transform humans into Zoanoids without their knowledge. It is safe to assume they erase the memories of these people of their being processed.

They can be activated from a distance by any Zoalord. These humans come under the Zoalords' telepathic mind-control techniques as soon as they transform, giving the organization an unquestioningly obedient army of super soldiers. These Zoanoids are genetically programmed to obey the orders of Zoalords (with some exceptions now and then, like Aptom).

Once these experiments are successfully completed, Cronos begins to openly make its bid to control the world. Zoanoids come in hundreds of different designs. Some are very specialized, like the Enzyme and Hyper Zoanoid units, and are few in number.

Others like Gregole, Ramotith and Vamore are more general-purpose and exist in much larger quantities. While not all humans can be made into Zoanoids, a very large percentage of humans possess the potential.
