A Great Series- Must Buy,
This review is from: Guyver - The Bioboosted Armor Collection [DVD]   (DVD)
Short answer? This anime is brilliant. However; if you want a detailed review as to why, here it is.
First off, the animation is spectacular. The lines are clean and the backgrounds detailed and fleshed; with the flow never once wavering even in the fight sequences. Any scene where the Mega Smasher is fired deserves special praise as you will never get tired of seeing that thing go off; especially with the incredible animation and sound effects. The music is also amazing, with changes between epic orchestrals and sharp techno and rock, to set the tone perfectly. In terms of voice acting, the two leads are played by Chris Patton and Luci Christian; two very experienced VAs who have worked together in accompanying roles in award winning anime such as Full Metal Panic, Princess Tutu and Welcome to the NHK to name a few. Other side characters of note include amazing performances by Bill Wise as Commander Guyot and Andrew Love as Masaki Murakami; though all other actors are seasoned veterans.
The story itself is fantastic. While the first 5 episodes feel very much like a "monster of the week" style show, following that the tone becomes dark and sombre with plot twists coming left right and center; building up to a very emotional climax in the final four episodes.
I came into the series as a solid fan of the original OVAs, going so far as to name them in my top 10 anime; however I always felt they were lacking something. This series takes on those issues and changes them for the better, as well as building on what made the original series awesome. I would easily rank this series as my number one show ever, hands down.
I've re-watched these episodes countless times and will watch them countless more.
I would recommend this to anyone who is a fan of anime, particularly the sci-fi genre.
