Looking for a female persepctive on Guyver

Recommended Posts

I have to admit that until the holidays that I haven't been on this forum for a while, but it seems that there's been a bit of an influx of female members here.  I wonder what it is that draws the female fans to Guyver.  After all, Guyver is a science fiction/action-adventure manga and anime series.  So there's plenty for male fans to go around as far as a PG-13 rated story (let alone the violent as all hell for its time OVA series), but what is drawing the girls in?  Just curious about this.

Personally, I like mostly shonen anime and manga. I love dragonball, naruto, my hero academia, etc.  The thing about all these manga and anime I like is how the characters develop over time. When a character pushes themselves beyond their boundaries and achieve something spectacular, it just puts me into tears of joy. I grew up on pokemon cartoon too, in a house full of boys. it was hard to find anything they were willing to watch that I found interesting. al the stuff they used to watch was boring, like transformers, turtles, pizza cats, etc. I could get into the themes of them quite well and I liked some of the cool ideas, but when it came to the actual shows themselves, they were really boring. So I guess I adapted as much as I could to see the interesting parts about them. same with power rangers and super sentai etc. there are some wonderful bits of drama in these shows.  Guyver has excellent drama and excellent achievement. Sho's mastery of the guyver is something to behold and the clandestine operations of cronos are so intriguing. the relationships between the different zoalords is so interesting.  I'm also fascinated by the detail in the lore. I am intensely interested in biology, chemistry and engineering and there is a bit of each in guyver.  the buildings that yoshiki takaya draws are very impressive. 

interestingly, I think there have been some other forum members who are lesbian. I am mostly, so I wonder if there is any real link there.

Just a little bit about me.  Even though my avatar image is a girl (Lydia from Beetlejuice), I'm a dude.  I grew up in a male dominated household, and I've been interested in Guyver for quite a while, about 20 years in fact.  But I've also been interested in what women think and what they do and what they see in some things.  So I guess that I'm a little bit of the opposite of what you've posted.

That all being said, I've wondered why Guyver it seems has plenty of female fans.   I'm not the biggest into manga/anime, so I'm only going off of what I know, which isn't very much. 

Also,  I do have to admit that I like the art style in Guyver as well.  As well as the story and the science stuff.
