    One of us needs to win the lottery, buy up all the licences that are causing problems, and just give them back to Takaya in a neatly wrapped up care-basket so he can do whatever he wants to do with the series again with no hassle.

    Well even though Matt didn't respond to any of my messages, my Aptom V4 came down from the US super fast with DHL. Another build I had to improvise on, (no idea how those tendrils are supposed to attach, I don't have a solder), but I'm really happy with it. Oh, and if anyone wants the BFC Guyver II kit, shoot my a PM with your offer. I'd like to sell it.

    This. I'm not sure if everyone here is familiar with the typical process involved in creating manga, but creators usually don't get paid for their final inked pages until after the chapter is published. 99% of manga creators are paid on a commission basis by the publisher and receive an agreed upon fee per page of completed manga. I say this because it seems there may be some people out there hoping that he's busily drawing up the conclusion of the manga during this hiatus. I'm sorry to say this, but the chance of that being the case is miniscule at best. Kadokawa, like any publisher, are in business to make money, and they aren't gonna ask him to toil away and not publish what he's done - they'll publish a chapter the moment it's ready! Even if the royalties are good for Takaya, I highly doubt it's enough to live on. Whatever is going on with him though, I think it's pretty obvious that he's not inking anything at the moment. Is he working with his editor and planning out the story? Possibly. Is he working on some storyboards? Possibly. Is he and his editor happy enough to proceed with inking? Not right now. That's pretty much as far as we can speculate I reckon...

    Page 32 Breakfast was already prepared on the dining table. [Would you like some red tea] The Uncle carefully said to Noriko who went to the table. [You can have whatever you like. Would you like some toast?] [Thank you very much. I'm good. I really don't understand the situation so I'm just a little bit worried.] Uncle nodded, like wanting to say something, but couldn't say anything for a while. At last, he slowly opened his mouth. [...actually, last night when I was alone, I was thinking. Why won't I let you return as the way you are right now. However, I can't do so in good conscience. So I thought that I have to tell you the truth after all] In an instant, there was a thought that brother was still alive. However, Uncle's word's did not go that way. [Tatsuo-kun, he was murdered] It took some time before understanding what that meant. However, even knowing this, Noriko still could not believe it. [Murdered-?] Uncle started his explanation. [Him, together with me, are part of a special department in Max Pharmaceutical. In order to keep the secret safe, even I myself do not know exact location of the company, it was that kind of work. Page 33 I don't think I can tell you the details, but using genetic research, it is part of a project team that develops new medicine, which I don't have much idea.] I finally understand why Brother had such a high salary. [Tatsuo-kun was a research staff and security personnel. With that kind of technology, it will put them ahead of the next generation. Competition between companies has been intense. The slightest leakage of sample or report will have a fatal result. Of course, the staff are kept to a bare minimum and the personnel has be trustworthy. They cannot simply employ security guards from the outside. -you haven't heard anything about the inside from your brother right?] [Right, he didn't mentioned anything.] Uncle nodded deeply. [In that sense, he was excellent. But was troublesome to those who steals confidential material.] [You mean industrial spy?] [A Criminal organization. A bunch involved in drugs and guns joined hands with the comglomerate, looking to make a big profit.] Reality still hasn't sunk in. But I can't see a reason why they have concocted such a tremendous lie. At least it made one thing very clear.

    I have about 10+ comic long boxes full. I have complete series of Amazing, Spectacular, Web of and Ultimate Spiderman. Complete first run of Daredevil and a bunch of others. But nothing as old as Amazing Fanatsy 15. I used to be big into comics and then kinda phased out of it but I pick some stuff up occasionally. Have some marvel figures and oddly enough some KISS( old rock group) action figures and a few statues. But Guyver became my main collecting focus since 2005. I have most all of the Guyver stuff except the statues. Maybe one day for those. I just hope the manga eventually pics back up and at least finishes.

    I could seriously use about 4 or 5 Detolf units. Of course i would have a ton more space if I didn't have all the BFC and BFW still in their boxes and if all the models were not lined up individually in front of their boxes.

    /wave I'm Brian Japan-Legend is it's own stand alone site. It used to be focused around a Wiki (which is since dead) and the message board we are chatting on. Jess gave up the site to me and I took it on to keep it going. I'd to make some tough calls on how to get the site to be manageable and that meant cutting the old Wiki which was not recoveable fromt he site and making it focus on what it manly is which is the Message-Board. WarriorGuyver.com in a similar way had a messageboard (2 in fact one old archive and an active one) and it effectively split the chat and trebled my work keeping them all up to date and working. So I merged them all into Japan-Legend. TheGuyver.Net will take over were the wiki and some old Guyver info pages I used to run left off. Recently replaced it with a word press site and will be Guvyer'iszing it later when I get time and putting a theme together for it that works.

    I too messaged him somewhat but he has not replied. I am sure this is not fun for him to have to sell any of it as it is hard to collect and is a passion. I have Aptom4 already, I needed Aptom2... funny enough i now have 2 of them so if anyone is interested let me know. I have an extra final form zx tole too. Lol! I don't see me ever selling my collection. Took too long and cost too much to get here!

    Page 48 [It not only enveloped the body, but engulfed everything. It gradually enters the mouth to the nose, and most probably through the pores... Even inside the head, like pushing through the back of the skull. Although it doesn't hurt, it just feels disgusting. It feels like all my insides are being distorted.] [It's like changing from a larvae into a butterfly. The body being broken down and melted, and then taking on a new form.] [Please stop. I'm not a worm you know.] Shou frowned. [Oh, sorry. It's just that no matter how you look at the outside, there are just no traces of what happened.] Tetsuro thought looking at the change in Shou. The brown colored object that thrust into Shou widened as it melted, overturning all of his body. On the forehead is where the half round metal orb stuck. At first it looked like a mud man, but when the orb on the forehead stood out, the figure began to form into something more distinct. The proliferating cells seems to be hardening. The extra swelled area that dripped immediately disolves in the air and disappears. Immediately after, a strange humanoid figure stood there. The whole body is covered with something like a white shell, which gray tissue is being removed. Page 49 The shoulders, elbows and knees seems to have a thick armor. What was disntinguished from the face was that there is an antenna extending from the forehead. From below there a red light was released, as the brightness increases, it slowly turns into white. On both sides of the head where the ears was, the area where the mouth used to be, as well as the center of the belly, there was a shining metal orb similar to that on the forehead. It looks something like an enhancement suit, but having closer resemblance to a living thing. Is Shou still inside of this? or could it be.... While at a loss, Tetsuro thought, "it" is moving. The halo on the forehead came alive. A strong light was leaking from the space in between the metal orb and it's base. At the same time the orb started to emit a high oscillating sound. Immediately nothing can be heard and there remained a sense of discomfort in the tympanic membrane. The frequency may have risen to ultrasound. As if the sound injured [it], it slipped from the shore and fell to the swamp. [It was immediately after that those guys appeared.] Heavy footsteps from the woods can be heard- Heading towards Tetsuro who was looking at the swamp, a man with their face hidden with goggles and helmet appeared. And also a monster.

    Light/Picture Novel Side Story set in the UC universe. The Deep Striker ( pictured in orange) is an MS Variation of the EX-S Gundam. *edit* My Bad. It's an MS Variation on the regular S-Gundam

    Well, I'm intrigued. I can't wait to see the drawings you're having commissioned and the story if you ever feel up to sharing. If you're going with the internal Guyver aspect, I'd put the receivers on the neck. Putting it on the back would result in issues calling the Guyver while wearing a shirt. Of course, it could almost be interesting to go one step farther. Instead of being two on the neck, it might interesting to have more than one receiver that completely rips off the clothes, resulting in something similar to Guyver IIF from the manga. It would make more sense, to me, to have multiple receivers as the whole armor coming out of two small holes on the neck is a little silly... in a way sillier than the extra dimensional stuff from the manga, I think. I'd be interested in the changes to Gigantic. If it is an "adult" form of the Guyver, would that mean there would be no "standard" Guyver once it matured? An overdrive would be interesting and could have added issues of the effects an "overdrive" could have in terms of stamina/energy consumption resulting in a type of "overheating" scenario with a race against the clock to finish the enemy before he ran out. Is Agito still working from within Chronos if he's a teacher? I always liked that aspect, personally.

    Personally, I would recommend watching anything in the UC Timeline in chronological order, or at least in terms of release, through Char's Counterattack. I haven't seen anything after that, but from my understand those series (Gundam, Zeta, ZZ and Char's Counterattack) build off of each other in some way and it would be best to watch those in order. Otherwise, I don't really think it matters. Sure, other series take aspects of the original show (the Char archetype, as mentioned above, being a big one) but it doesn't really matter, unless you really feel that you need/really want to know the basis of said archetypes before experiencing them. If you like the super robot genre (and the Devil Gundam design), I'd almost suggest starting with that. I believe it's the only super robot show of Gundam metaseries and could be a good introduction for you. Of course, since you are already interested, starting with the original is good, too. As for the side stuff in the sense of manga, etc. I haven't read any of them (well, I did read the original novels by Tomino, but those aren't canonical, so I'm not sure they count), but it hasn't stopped me from like/understanding/enjoying any of the series that I have watched. If you're really into a particular series and want more from it, then I'm sure it would be great to track them down... not sure about the ease, though. There's a lot of Gundam I haven't seen and that's almost the glory of it. You still have a lot of entertaining shows without needing to track everything down, but it's all there if you want it.

    Awesome stuff my man! If Guyver was my only series I'd get more, but with other stuff it becomes impossible to get everything. So what do we think? Guyot or Imakuram? I've narrowed it down to 2!

    You could also try mangaoh.co.jp. They are an online bookstore based in Japan and they will ship even to the UK. Bought from them a lot of times, all of the Guyver books I bought was bought from this site. Of course the site is in Japanese. You can send and email in English, and they will reply with and answer, but it will still be in Japanese.

    You have to wonder, given how much output Takaya gives for the manga, does his pay as Mangaka enough to cover his daily expenses? Just playing around with the idea, but perhaps he has a day job now?

    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.

    Ah yes Ultraman, I don't know why that didn't register when Kanji pointed that out. Hell it's not just the colour and size changing but also it's another instance of an alien setting up shop in someone's body, all be it with consent in that case. Yes far better then Ideon. On the subject of assumption, well thats kind of the point of this thread. Takaya did indeed site those as his main sources but from examining other content, others research and personal experience, development of any concepts is not always that simple. We constantly absorb new information and idea's that we then develop into our own, one way or another. It's all very interesting I feel and applying a little speculative analysis and assumption to Guyver is both interesting and fun. If absolutely nothing else, doing this with other stuff has allowed me to come across other material I was unaware of. Edit: It's also a good way to find out your ideas are wrong, case in point. On that note the placement of the Control Metal and Zoacrystals is another thing of intreast. The most obvious is the idea of the third eye mythology and spirituality. It's a concept generally linked with greater awareness along with the ability to see chakra/auras/ the supernatural. While not a true facsimile of these concepts, the Control Metal is the core of the Guyver and the direct link between the host and the armour, providing control, information and protection. Perhaps the closest it gets is with the units ability to connect directly with the Relic ship. The Zoacrystals while not as complex are still the key part of Zoalords power. Guyver is far from the only one as it has been used in a lot of media, for example Mazinger Z again with the placement of the pildet. For the first piloted mecha, it's control unit is not behind it's eyes or in it's chest, but right in the centre of the forehead. As well as with it's progenitor Demon Lord Dante, with the human part of the demon (interesting also inspire by Godzilla). Other more overt references to the third eye can be found in a Japanese's fiction such as Tien from Dragon Ball to as recently as One Piece and the character of Pudding.

    I had a really weird dream a while back related to an old game I played the crap out of as a kid. I was in a Legend of Zelda game, with N64 graphics, and I was fighting a corrupted Link, and I was using masks from Majora's Mask against him. On top of that, when wearing the transformation masks, I could equip the regular items (that normally can't be used while wearing those particular masks) into my yellow arrow slots and they'd act as a "power boosts" for the mask attacks. (Example: As a goron, I equipped the fire and ice arrows, and my goron punches became fire or ice punches.) It was odd and cool, but when I woke up at 3 in the damn morning my brain decided to continue the story and keep me up. Anyone else have game dreams like this or is my brain trying to tell me something?

    Busy last few days. Great War of the Guyvers has being fully restored as to what it was before the change over to Wordpress. This also has a fully working Gallery section which is a nice upgrade to the way pictures used to work on the site. Note if you want to save pictures move the mouse to near the top of the picture when the mouse icon changes from a hand to a pointer. Rightclick and then you can save the picture. Along with that the Links section has also being fully restored and updated. There's still a lot of left to do. The ACTF Data files along with the other data files are still on going.

    Agree with your points mostly except for this: How could the frequency blades cut adamantium? They put out destructive vibrations at a molecular (or crystalline, I guess) level, but it's still a function of kinetic energy. The whole point about structural integrity is applying kinetic energy to disrupt it, and the whole deal of adamantium is that applying sufficient kinetic energy to tear it apart is not possible. Not by natural means, anyway.
