  • An alien bio-armor made to enhance the users strength/agility and healing abilities, and augment that with an awsome arsenal of bio weapons

    This TV show is adapted from the earlier 12 part manga series made quite a few years ago.

    Now taking the story and fleshing it out and explaining a lot more things in detail, i came out of watching these with a much more indepth view of the guyver and its background.

    Sho Fukamache (spelling?) and his friend while wondering near to a lake come across an unknown to them alien artifact that got launched there after 3 units are stolen by a rogue zoanoid, who himself gets waylayed by stronger faster zoanoids in a desparate attempt to not let them get their hands on the units he blows himself up sending the 3 units flying in all directions.

    upon discovery of this unit sho is enticed by the control metal (the very epicentre of a guyver unit,its power source so to say) in the centre of the unit. activating it surrounds sho in thick muscle like tendrils in apparant pain sho falls into the lake.

    leaving his friend on the banks to be discovered by the zoanoids (zoanoids you find out later in the series are what humans used to be bio-weapons of an alien race, that the chronos corperation has found a way to awaken this dormant gene)they are about to have some fun with him when sho in the shiney blue armor of the guyver unit rises from the lake, to protect his friend.

    To say the least thhe makes short work of the zoanoids and this in turn leads to more trouble for sho and his friends and family.

    This is how the series progresses with them making more friends and enemies along the way, as they try to take down the chronos corporation.

    The only problem i had with this is that it was a little to tame to the old series i remember, fair enough they lightened it up due to it being more kid friendly.

    I've always liked the guyver and would love to see a full full blown series of this with some sort of culmination but as in all anime/manga they never seem to satisfactory finish things off and leave it open for a return that sadly doesnt happen to often.moreless
