There was a time, in anime, when men were men, and they had huge swords and guns with which to leave bloody trails of corpses in their wake. Indeed, the Guyver series is one such anime, and in ages past it flew far in the firmament of ultraviolence into territories known by such classics as Ninja Scroll and Akira.

The remake brings Guyver up to modern standards as far as animation and sound are concerned, but otherwise it is deliciously old school in many respects. You'll find no moe lolis or tsunderes here, just a good old fashioned story about a boy and his biomechanical robot read more

If you're strongly familiar with Kamen Rider when watching this anime, you'll notice a lot of similarities with the plot elements. And it is not coincidence because the original manga-ka, Yoshiki Takaya, was influenced by Kamen Rider. But despite that, a lot of traits in Guyver are still distinctively unique, original, and engaging.

The beginning of this anime will be repetitive in some aspects, but I feel it is for the right reasons. At times, Cronos will try to kidnap Tetsuro and Mizuki to lure out Sho in almost the first 12 or so episodes, but like I said, the reasons are legitimate since it's read more

Several fans of the original Guyver hated this series without giving it a chance. However, I welcomed the very much needed change. This version which is considered The New Guyver far surpasses the original in many ways. There were numerous elements that had room for plenty of improvement and it succeeded on improving in some areas. Most noticeably is definitely the animation, characters, dropped story elements, and better use of plot devices.

The animation is very good, the fights are very brutal and stylish; a good portion of the fight scenes are fluid and aren't downplayed into unseen action. The character designs for both the Guyver read more

This anime could have been really good... a few things they did wrong was adding "drama", countless flashbacks that was not needed. The ending ??? to be honest this was my biggest problem with the anime... Zx-Tole was the last fight ? really what happens with Chronos? also possibly rethink the animation so it looks less like Power Rangers!
