    This is most likely the optimist in me talking, but maybe just maybe, the prolonged hiatus is him actually finishing up the series. Like actually planning out the rest of the story and then getting it done in one fell swoop instead of doing the month to month pace, which could have been a hindrance? I know I am being foolish, but all I have at this point is hope.

    Guyver (pre gigantic and Exceed) vs Doomsday (1992)

    Possible. They included Superman's cellular tissue when they made him regenerate after he was mostly desintegrated after 'Our Worlds At War', so he would have a sensitivity to Kryptonite and hence could be controlled. That worked about as well as you might expect. They couldn't even control him on Apokalips.

    Those fossils look amazing, I am actually a bit jealous of that possession haha xD Oh well, congratulations on having those! They look really cool. Say no to feathered T-Rex

    Pretty well, I've been to a couple of beaches around England that and collected a few pieces. I also hunt for more exotic stuff in shops and the webs. If your interested I've posted pictures of them on my blog on this site. Which reminds me I have to post about a few new pieces I've got.

    A pleasant surprise, hopefully? Anyways, thanks! And it's understandable that you'd not want to spread the scans. But yes, I AM interested and it may be slow or whatever, but this is better than nothing, no? Then, I'll accept this wonderful opportunity that I've been given. Ooh, fossil hunting, how goes that? Sadly, where I live I doubt I could find any dinosaur materials, alas. I did have a passion for paleontology once, but it has since then evolved into a passion for video games (tho knowing me my video games will be clustered with dinosaurs) and/or just writing fiction in general. While I suck as a writer, that's true, I do have some wonderful ideas, even some revolving around dinosaurs because obviously, they can make anything better. Alright, do so! I see. Well that sounds interesting but I don't live in Japan alas, though, if anything, I'd be buying it for collection's sake (I'm a collectionist of sorts). But yea that's an interesting offer, I'll keep it in mind if I ever get to buying the manga! But of course!

    Oh, was he not? I’d got it into my head he had to evolve Kryptonite resistance in a story after Death of Superman.

    Go for it, it’s been a pretty good series so far. No spoilers though please.

    Funnily enough, I saw both volumes in a used book store today. I might just pick them up and give em a read...

    Manga Translation

    Wow... did not expect to see this today. Hello, welcome to the site. It's nice to meet a fellow dinosaur enthusiast. Like you I was rather shocked at how little dinosaur fiction there is, at least when it comes to manga. Likewise Blue Hole was right at the top of my most wanted list. In 2016 I started to think, well if none else if gonna translate it, why don't I give it a shot. In 2017 I bit the bullet, as you can see, an started translating it. There's a reason you don't find this online, I don't upload it anywhere. I don't do this becuase I'm not a member of any scalation websites and I'd rather not get into any legal trouble. If your dead set on getting this series, I'm happy to talk about it privately. But be warned this is something of a hobby and a slow burn one at that. I've only done 8 chapters to date, I finished that last weekend, and I lost the spark a while back and didn't translate anything for a while. I'm trying to get back into gear and plan to complete a chapter a month, as I have I balance it between my other hobbies which are fossil hunting as well as tracking down other dinosaur material and giant robot anime. On the subject of Fourteen (1990), It looks very intreasting and I will be taking a look. As for Guyver, I was by first anime to. The group that run the site and translate the manga do not just give it away. Any scans you find online were put there without their permission. If your interested, they simple ask that you buy the manga volumes from Japan and provide photo evidence that you have done so. You'll then be granted access to the translation of the volume you purchased. The manga is currently on hiatus for unknown reasons and has been that way for about three years now, however what we have on the site goes beyond the last chapter you'd find anywhere else. It's up to you but I'd say its worth it. Thanks for taking an intreast.

    Kadokawa are no more awkward than any other company. If anything, like most publishers, they will want more content to keep an established series alive. I have a feeling the problem lies more with Takaya than with his publisher. Then again, there's no real way of telling unfortunately... Yes, I completely agree. I think Takaya's involvement on these figures is grossly over exaggerated. From what I understand, the creators pretty much leave most of the leg work to the manufacturers. So, yeah, I highly doubt he's been "busy" meticulously looking over the finer details of these statues. If he's got time to do that, his editors will wanna know where the next chapter is. All we can do is speculate, but unless he's literally directing a movie or some other massive project that has somehow remained a secret, I think he's probably just taking a creative "break" for a while...

    Maybe I'm just ignorant, but I can't see how the Prime figures would take him 3 years to sort out. Making them isn't his job. It looks like their molds were finished a long time ago and I can't imagine it taking more than a few months (if that) for him inspect the design, the sculpt and the paintwork, if he wishes to keep the producers on a tight leash for QA. While the release of such impressive pieces of Guyver merch is confusing, I don't think it has anything to do with the manga's release.

    Hello and sorry if this reply seems stupid. But I wanted to know if there was a specific site where you uploaded the translated work? I'm also a huge fan of dinosaurs and honestly, I'm shocked at the considerable lack of dinosaurs in fiction as a whole. That's when I searched for older dinosaur anime/manga and stumbled upon this. I tried so hard to find it's translation and failed. Anyways, my searching led me to here where at last it seemed like I had found my nirvana after all. Uhum, sorry for the horrible jokes xD Anyways, I just want to know if you could potentially share the work? I'd love to read this manga, it definitely seems like something I'll enjoy (I hope so at least, dinosaurs are a huge plus for me anyway) I'm sorry if you already shared it here and it escaped my notice. Thanks in advance! By the way, you should check out Fourteen (1990). It's a weird manga that I ended up enjoying way more than I thought I ever will. It's stupid at times, but also insane and in its wild insanity, does it dance oh so wonderfully. The art may not be the best, however. If you check it out, do let me know. EDIT: I thought I should let you know that yes, I'm new and I did make an account to get this specific manga haha xD Interesting site tho, Guyver was amusingly my first anime ever, and while I want to get into the manga, my brother told me it never got finished and is left in hiatus? Anyway, because of that, sadly I never got to reading it.

    Thank you for this insight. this is very interesting. They have also been working on the giant prime figures for a long time. If the Mangaka had lost interest, he would not have worked on those statues. I have also heard in the past that Kadokawa are an awkward company to deal with. Perhaps this is a situation where Yoshiki Takaya is finding it difficult to work with them?

    Hi from Italy. In the last book, april 2017 (italian edition by star comics), there is an interview, in the end Takaya promised 2 things, a conclusion for the story and above all he said he was preparing something special for the 30th anniversary. Since then nothing, the darkness. I mailed star comics for information and waiting for an answer.

    Wow. I can barely remember that chapter, it's been so long since I read it. I knew they both combined or something to fight Gigantic Dark but one of them looked like a ball and then they fused and started fighting. Creating a bunch of large tornados and such. Do we need to make a petition like they did for Young Justice? By the way I'm so glad Young Justice is back!

    Yes, but not saying a singe thing about why your serialization has abruptly stopped is also very un-Japanese too, so I guess it's just par for the course with this guy. Knowing how the business works, there could be a few reasons why the manga has been AWOL for so long. 1) His editor, or the editor in chief at ACE is not happy with his work, and doesn't deem it good enough to run. 2) The title has been dropped all together. (Not an entirely far-fetched theory. Regardless of whether it's still listed or not, this could very well be the case.) 3) Takaya is in poor health and has been unable to draw. 4) Takaya has had enough, and can't be bothered to continue anymore. Where most established manga creators with a large following have assistants to help draw the manga each week/month, it's possible that he is working alone. That would certainly justify the paltry number of pages each month even when it was being serialized. I recall seeing him placing an add for assistants (which he certainly wouldn't have had trouble finding since there are so many out there looking for work these days) so perhaps he found a few, but even if he did, he's barely done anything. Whatever the reason behind the hiatus, the fact that NOTHING has been said via the appropriate channels by Takaya himself is by far the biggest disappointment. Like many of you, I enjoy reading the Guyver, but it isn't THAT spectaular that its creator can just sit in silence and keep his fans in the dark without some kind of explanation. By mangaka standards here in Japan, he's been most unprofessional regarding the hiatus and the treatment of his fans. Personally, I think the reason might be a combination of 3 and 4.

    He can't just quit it and leave us holding our collective bag. It's un-Japanese.

    Doomsday was not native to Krypton.

    Saitama VS Guyver Gigantic

    Depends on the venue, like with Goku. In his own universe, Saitama is invincible except against King, but in the Guyver universe he might be just another drop-out sarariman.
  28. Dinosaur Leader Gottes

    Saitama VS Guyver Gigantic

    Considering that Saitama's Serous Punch totally overpowered Boros's Collapsing Star Roaring Cannon, an attack that can destroy the surface of the earth (or blow up a planet in the anime), Gigantic's weapons are no threat to the Caped Baldly. That said Gigantic Exceed's Gravity Implosion should work... if it was given time to fire it. The problem is the attack takes time to charge and Saitama generally has little patience.

    Guyver (pre gigantic and Exceed) vs Doomsday (1992)

    Is thread necromancy ok here? As I understand it, Doomsday (comics) is an forcibly-evolved Kryptonian who, whenever he dies, revives immune to whatever killed him. And wasn’t on Krypton when it died. So by my reckoning, the Guyver’s got one chance to find a big Kryptonite Crystal, and filter a Mega Smasher through it and vapourise DD. Absoltely any other strategy ends with a Control Medal getting turned into a pancake by the first punch that hits it.
