Format: Paperback
After watching two incarnations of this as an anime series I felt it was about time I explored the roots of the story which got me into anime in the first place. Volume 1 of the Guyver Manga contains 6 distinct chapters, the first chapter sets up the story quickly and the action starts almost immediately.

For those unfamiliar with Guyver, it details the story of a Sho; a student who inadvertently discovers a biological weapon which bonds to the user and when activated and has the appearance of armour. It is capable of giving the user incredible strength and destructive powers - needless to say it's a desired bit of technology and the Kronos organisation are after it at any cost.

Kronos are a global group with a dark history, they are in the business of creating `Zoanoids' - humans who can change form into beastly monsters - the possibility of combining a Zoanoid with the power of the Guyver unit is a tantalising concept.

That may all sound a bit far-fetched, but Kronos are an underground movement and most of the story during this first volume takes place in more 'everyday' real life settings, such as school. This isn't a super-hero style comic book story, it tackles the issues Sho faces after becoming the Guyver in a pretty realistic fashion . His life is turned up-side-down as he comes to realise that it isn't just him in danger, his family and friends are also now vulnerable by association. His best friend Testsuro is a science-fiction fan and his wild theories on how the Guyver works are more-or-less accurate and act as a great way to explain the intricacies of the device.

It doesn't take long to get to know the characters in the story.

I bought the animated Manga series that was released here in the UK when I was about 16. Now, 7 years later, it's still going strong. My videos are now beginning to develop problems - losing sound due to tape degredation. So I'm pleased I can buy the series again, only in graphic novel form. I was surprised to see that book 1 seemed to cover the entire video set! I can't wait to see what's in store for the characters in the continuation of the series! All I want to see now, is the entire series released on DVD.

Ever since the first issue of the Viz translation came out, I've been hooked on this series. The art and story are both amazing. The plot is surprising and dramatic. Anybody who's a fan of this series should also check out the anime series, which is pretty close to the manga plot, except it introduces characters a bit faster, and it doesn't run as long (I think). Also, the Guyver series is still going on in Japan. I think that it's on issue 80 or something now, and it shows no signs of stopping. Please Viz, bring us the rest of this story!
