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

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

Review From A Hardcore Guyver Fan

The original 12 ep OVA was one of the first anime series I saw and when I say that trust me catching ANY anime in England in the early 90’s wasn’t easy.

After watching the new series I decided to wait a while before reviewing, as I had mixed emotions about it, comparing it to the older ova version and gathering my thoughts…well in a nutshell an good but flawed remake.


Good animation but I noticed the gore level was cut down a GIANT notch compared to the ova which was one of Guyver’s highest selling points IMO. So there was a read more
