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.

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

Recommendations

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!
Amon is much bloodier and has better gore, but some of the action scenes are similiar and it has the same feel to it. I would call Guyver a PG-13 version of Amon.
