Good old fashion space alien takes over human and fights evil show. Characters are believable and interesting to watch, attention to human motion is impressive in this animation and design style is rather nice not complicated by extra layers of shading. The music isn’t half bad either and usually appropriate to the situation. Guys family is fun to watch as they can be comicly sarcastic. Recommend 16+ because of brief partial nudity and some disturbing scenes.

one of my old school fav that just goes to show that know matter how short an anime is, it can still be packed with quality.This anime starts fairly straight-forward.Tomu is a loser teen with absolutely no hope for his future.He gets bad grades,he's unpopular and his own familiy think he's a prick.Cant get any worst right ? wrong ! as one day he unwittingly finds himself between an alien police officer called birdy and a evill alien thug.Tomu almost die in the incounter and in order to save his life birdy is forced to merge her body with his.

Tomu life from therein gets even read more

Recommendations

Format is very similar, Unassuming boy gains a super powered alter ego due to alien influence and battles various monsters, while discovering the bigger picture. Guyver is just darker and more violent, also instead of the main character turning into a Woman, he turns into biological battle armor.
Action, powerful female lead
