The plot of this OVA is a rough adaptation of the first four chapters of the Guyver manga. It covers the same basic elements of these chapters; Genesis of the guyver, Fight with Vamore, Fight with Guyver 2 and the introduction of Guyver 3. Main differences are the exclusion of Tetsuro and his replacement by Mizuki, The replacement of Lisker with a female Agent "Valcuria", and thus a female Guyver 2. There is also a look at Sho's psychology of how he deals with his situation including a very harsh moment where his friends are assassinated in cold blood.
One night, high school student Sho Fukamachi discovers a mysterious metal object. Then in a blinding flash of light, Sho finds that he has accidentally fused with the Guyver, a mecha of mysterious alien design.
Now, to save his girlfriend, Mizuki Segawa, along with the entire world, Sho must become the Guyver to fight the Chronos Corporation and their biocreatures, called Zoanoids, who are hell-bent on world domination.
The title of this may cause some slight confusion. This is an OVA Movie adaptation of the Guyver manga; mainly referred to as: "Guyver: Out of Control".
Some people may confuse this with the Guyver (1989).
In reviewing this OVA film, there is not much to say other than it isn't a great adaptation... like at all.
It is a terrible retelling of the Guyver. I highly do not recommend this film as I thought it was a disgrace to the Guyver series. Watching this movie is sure to cause pain.
The original series however, is very good if you love action anime: "The Guyver" (1989). The art shows its age, but of everything else, I deeply enjoyed that better TV series adaptation. So if you're looking for a decent action anime I recommend the 1989 series and not this one.read more
Shame on me for not writing a review before.This movie was´nt my 1st introduction of the Guyver genre after seeing the t.v serie´s in the late 90´s( i was nuts as a minor aged kid too see such bloodshed), but u definetly like the ´spark ´of the franchise.For the fans keep in mind that the 1st Guyver anime is only based on the 1st 4 chapters of the manga wich some minor changes thats notable in the 1st t.v serie´s from the 80´s 90´s, and that the production was´nt a milliondollar company but a small studio with limited resources. Storywise i was really into it, the whole unpredictabillity of the guyver suits and stuff, more interesting was how the very dark twists further in the story, how short it may be get a nice setting that fits after half the film. i liked the art somewhat, though u have to be used too see 80's 90's handdrawn anime like me but that once again differs for the viewers.For the soundtracks it gave the suspense to what an 80's anime should be, especially when the Female guyver dies, and a bit of rockmusic ofc. All of the ordinary charachters involved have something special to themselve's aside from Sho Fukamachi (the guyver) as for the villians, i mean by that the personality that was given to them, and no girls screaming over the damn place like helpless sluts! each of them acted like real evryday humans.
the t.v show inproved the storyprogressing of the manga and of the art , they kept the strength of most of the charachters alive although sometime's it dropped time to time.read more
