Synopsis

Shou and his friend, Tetsurou, stumble upon a strange orb-like mechanism, the Guyver Unit, in the woods. It physically bonds with Shou and turns him into the alien soldier, Guyver. His mission is to protect the Guyver Unit from the Japanese corporation known as Chronos. They are after it and two other units just like it. To retrieve the object, they send out vicious monsters known as Zoanoids. So no one is safe in Shou's life; not even himself.

The story of this anime is actually quite believable in that there is this secret corporation, called Chronos, that plans on obtaining world power (similar to the "Illuminati", if you know what that is). Unlike other anime's that rely on magic and supernatural, this one is scientific and also often makes references to the unknown of beasts and aliens.
The art has a retro look to it and I would say is the weakest aspect of this anime. If you really like action anime (because the action is great), do not let the art stop you from enjoying this epic anime. In fact, I like read more

All I can say is that if you have seen the newer TV series, the plot of this oav pretty much follows the same story line except some changes and being a 12 episode series, the pacing is more condensed and less material is covered. The beginning of the oav this time will be that the man on the run from Cronos is accidentally ran over by a truck as opposed to being stopped by two officers. But these events still lead up to the same result: Tetsuro and Sho go to a lake to hang out, and the man being chased causes an explosion read more

oldskool anime, violent and vicious as hell, both are simmilar in the armor and the explicit unscensored gore scene´s that u don´t see anymore in anime today! and both are cultclassics!
Well, basically that's a remake but it covers a bit more of the chapters from the manga. Everything else is pretty much the same but if you want to see a better character development and more from the story you should watch this. Plus if you like the original you will also like the remake.
