Format: DVD
The series opens with a fantastic dystopian opening, an apocalypse introduces a back-story and emphasises that the burdon of future peace lies with The Guyver. This isn't particularly relevant to the first four episodes, but it sets the scope of what is to come.

For those familiar with the original animated series there are many similarities, not just plot-wise, but the characters are faithful to previous incarnations. I suppose this should be no surprise considering that both are based on the initial graphic-novel, but this new series spans twice the number of episodes to delve further into the Guyver legend and develop the story fully.

The artwork is fantastic, with lush forests, sunsets, and suburbia all well represented. The animation is smooth, and the still images are detailed enough to convey exactly what is needed. The animation really communicates across the sheer power of the Guyver unit, especially when the Mega Smasher weapon is used. It doesn't look as though excessive compression has been used, so action scenes and highly detailed imagery maintain a high quality finish.

This isn't just about violence and scenes of destruction. There's a touching story of loyal friendship to underpin the series, and family relations to worry about. These first four episodes introduce the main characters: The teenage friends; Sho (who has the Guyver unit), his friend Tetsuro, and Tetsuro's sister Mizuki (whom Sho rather fancies). These episodes centre around Sho and Tetsuro, it's good to see that the episodes don't centre too much on the Guyver unit, but instead focuses on the impact it has on the relationships it touches.

Well the story has teenager Sho get infected by a bioweapon turning him into a "Guyver" the Bioboosted Armour, then the story takes off from there with an evil Corporation called Cronos looking for the Guyver. This first volume serves as a great introduction to an awesome show and ADV have really done themselves proud with it's release and an excellent English Dub.

The animation and video quality is excellent with detailed imagery that really brings out all the details in the enviroments. Though there calling it "the new face of Ultra Violence" and from what I've seen it still has to live up to it, hopefully the rest of the anime will live up to the name.

I first came across the guyver in the mid-late 90's. When i saw it i thought it was the coolest thing i had ever seen.

When i heard that ADV where remaking this classic i thought, how can they update this to even compare to the original? But i have to say they pulled it off, and very well.

The new animations are slick and smooth, and the fight scenes are seamless. The old 80's clothes and hairdoos have gone, replaced with more slick, up to date styles. Basically this new version rules.

The reason i only gave it a four star is because (as many of you have stated below) the fight scenes and gore aren't as detailed as the old version. It has been downgraded from an 18 to a 15, but im my opinion it's still one of the best Anime's out there.

After hearing they were remaking the series I got very excited. I've seen the origanals many years ago and thought they were brilliant. How does the new series compare? Much better, with some minor alterations to storyline and script at the behest of it's original creator, fuels this to be better than it's predecessor. Storyline is well written and comes along at just the right pace. Charecters are compeling. Action sequences are done well by the director and well animated. This was a good anime, now it's a great anime. This is one of all time favourites and would reccomend it to anyone. Exceptional stuff.
