I liked how they were able to make guyver and zoanoids look so much like the original designs while also making them look modern as well. I enjoyed the longer plot and how we learn a bit more then we did then in the original.
tho I feel the music in this was not as great as the original, I enjoyed how it allowed the plot but also changed things from the first anime and added in some new things. All and all I really loved this anime and hope they will do some more seasons one day.
I would have to give it a 8/10

The source manga has not aged gracefully, and the anime would have felt dated and backwards even on its initial release over a decade ago. Characters don't seem to have strong personalities to distinguish them from the basic outlines of the tropes that were molded from, and the overall flatness of these characters cause the "serious" ...
