this will always show the new issue cover.

At least Guyver is still on the first list page. Though judging based on the content, maybe it's time that Guyver changed magazines(or should have done earlier)? I'm a little surprised at all the bishoujo titles because I thought those were more seinen. It's pretty clear that Takaya brought Guyver IIF back to compete with all the big-breasted rivals(or at least try to).

Still nothing? And does Takaya have a Twitter page or something? I was wondering if he'd have one for Guyver at least.

He has no know presence on social media, or the internet! What a pain, aye?

Crap.  That kinda sucks, but it's expected coming from him too.

Still here bro. 

 

I have to say, those of us that are left really are hardcore fans. Anyone feel like sharing how they got into Guyver to the point that led them to this forum? For me I was 5 years old and my landlady's son was watching it on the TV. It was the Enzyme fight from the old OVA anime. It was the coolest thing I had ever seen. After that it left my mind for a few years until I was like 13 or something and was looking at the new anime section at my local Blockbuster. Then I came across some Guyver VHS's. I immediately got my grandma to rent them and watched tapes out of order(you had to take what you could get back then they didn't have all the episodes) and most of the time one or two were rented out. At that point I had been watching stuff like Pokemon and Sailor Moon early in the morning already but I really do credit Guyver with getting me into anime proper. Been a fan ever since.

Still here, and a friend of mine from high school introduced me to the 2005 Guyver anime before he graduated.  My dad says I saw the original 90's anime with him, but I don't remember seeing that until I bought the DVD release off of B&N while in college.  I saw that the 2005 anime had manga to anime comparisons for some of the episodes and I ended up looking for the manga then ta-da!  Found this site and have stuck with it ever since.

Geez, Blockbuster! That takes me back. Didn't that company go under 5 years ago??

My intro to Guyver was also via VHS rental, but at a local convenience store. Probably back in 1999/2000.

My dad let me rent out Urotsukidoji: Legend of the Overfiend, thinking it was a kids cartoon :) After that I was hooked on everything 'Manga Entertainment UK' was distributing at the time. Guyver, Crying Freeman, Fist of the North Star, Ninja Scroll, Akira, Ghost In The Shell, etc.!

Wow, that was a blast from the past just recalling all that! Such nostalgia from almost 20 years ago!! Good times!!

Totally still here. I got into Guyver about 1996. Saw the first vhs tape at a specs music store. I was 14 and had a $20 burning a hole in the pocket. So as I was perusing the anime section BAM! There was that cool cover art. Scoped the back cover and thought how cool it looked. I bought it right then. I wore that tape and my friends out watching it over and over. For the longest time I only had those first 2 episodes to watch. Then I bought all the graphic novels from viz at a local comic shop and the fascination grew. But after viz cancelled the books and the tapes stopped, I was out of it for a long time. 2014 is when I found his first appearance in monthly shonen captain and I happened across this site. I have since read all of the mangas at least 4 times and amassed my sweet collection. I hope the manga will get back on track and come to an awesome end soon. And I also have the Guyver1 statue to look forward to soon... So I am satiated in the moment.

Still here!  Hit-list videos for me, was going through my super sentai phase and saw the cover of the second Guyver movie.  Got the first movie(so I could go in order) and fell in love with the concept.  Needless to say my next rental was the second move and loved it even more.  A couple of years later I saw the 12 part Guyver OVA anime in Suncoast videos and with my young and uneducated mind at the time I was like "There is a Guyver cartoon?!".  Bought the first VHS episode for like...$12 I think and just couldn't stop

After translating the page where Guyver is located I get "Genital Armor Guyver" as the translated title.

...not sure how to feel about that...

Still here as well.

 

 

Came across the original ova on VHS at a suncoast store in the late 90's If I remember Correctly.  Absolutely loved it.  Watched it probably once every other week.   That's all knew about it until one day in a Best Buy I see volume 1 of the new series.  I was like "Holy Crap!!!!".   Then when I got home to watch it I saw the booklet inside and when I skimmed through it I say one of the voice actors holding the Max Factory action figure.  I nearly drenn my pants.  I had no idea there were actions figures.  So I googled it and eBay came up and I saw there were a number of figures and the original colored models and all kinds of stuff.  That's when I joined eBay in 2005 so I could buy the action figures.  Over the next year or so I got figures 1 thru 11.  Then I saw Imakarum come up for pre order but money was tight so I had to pass.  I decided maybe later.  My figures sat on the shelf for awhile and i kinda difted away from Guyver.  I still watched the anime dvds I had frequently but that was it.  Then things picked up for me a couple years ago and i found myself drawn back in.  I wanted to get Imakarum to finish the figure line.  Imagine my surprise when every where I saw the prices were $500+!   Decided to start collecting the models instead for the time being along with other Guyver stuff.  Managed to finally get Imakarum for a really good price, got all the models, figures, figmas, Gigantics, two different Lisker 1/6 resin statues, both Vile Guyvers by Narin, the mangas,  Guyver 3 statue, some busts, G unit prop etc.  Trying to finish the trading card collection for the cards that came in the models have just 3 to go.  Waiting on the Prime 1 ultimate G1 to ship.  Probably won't be until next year some time :(  Having Peter Hall who did the G1 resin bust with guts showing sculpt a 1/6 Griselda figure. He should start it in August.  Would like to eventaully get the Guyver and Guyver Zoanoid bust from ECC but i might need to sell a kidney.  And like the rest of you I'm wishing he would continue with the manga.  I need more Guyver as I am kinda going through withdrawal lol.

Yeah I check in every once in a while. I know I saw the live action movie first when I was ten. Despite the humor it was still cool seeing all the monsters and mayhem. I can never fully hate that movie. Then Dark Hero then saw the 6 part OVA and the first two episodes of the second half. Then the first OVA then the anime.

I'm still here. Been watching a lot of Kamen Rider in the meantime. 

Figured I would check and see if there were any new updates. Hope it'll be finished at some point, before I start hitting my 30's.
