  1. The OVA couldn't continue, It ended exactly when it needed to. Aptom's Gregole/Vamore/Enzyme II composite form is the "final boss" of the series so to speak, but let's think of what could actually happen if it had gone on longer. What does Aptom do after Sho defeats him? He absorbs Elegan, but wait! Elegan died giving his life energy to ZX-Tole, who also died way too early. Gaster and Derzerb? Also dead. The entire Hyper Zoanoid 5 died before Aptom even showed up. Think about it, with all of them gone, how is Aptom to evolve past that composite form? He can't. Don't get me wrong, the 12-episode OVA is probably my favorite Guyver media outside of the manga, but 12 episodes is all it could be. It's absurdly gory and violent, and with horrible dubs (which makes it perfect in my eyes), but there is no way they could have possibly extended the life of it. I see what you saying, with the chaninging of events it would make continuing with another set of OVA's a bit difficult. The OVA couldn't continue, It ended exactly when it needed to.

Yeah; I ran into that problem myself, when I was writing my series. I solved it with cloning; and I have to say, I really enjoyed writing first-clone ZX-tole's freak out when the second batch of clones was decanted. Cloning is a good way to get around ZX-tole and the other Team 5 members demise.
  2. Thats an interesting thought that the TV version had more of the human aspect while the OVA played up the alien and violence. I imagine doing a TV series length, you have that oportunity play up more of the human moments than the OVA had with a more limited number of episodes.
  3. That is true that the TV series was "closer" to the manga than the 12 episode OVA which didnt follow the manga in exactly the same manner but I do think the tone of the OVA was as you say more violent and darker. It may be the times when they were created and the fact one was direct to video and one was a tv series. The TV series being possibly aimed at a larger audience may have decided to tone things down. You could compare the two Guyver 1 vs Enzyme battles, the Ova version was far more brutal to me than the TV series, or where Aptom was trying to get Sho recover his ability to call the Guyver, The Ova had nudity and the TV series pretty much shadowed everything or didnt have the nudity at all. How about this, if either the TV series or the OVA could be continued which would you want to continue?
  4. Does anyone have any comparisons or opnions on eithe the 12 part OVA or TV series? I just watched the 12 part OVA and the recent 26 episode TV series and had a blast having not watched either in quite a while. I thout it might be fun to do some camparisons or opnions of both. I'll start. I had forgotten how good the OVA was while the artwork wasnt consistant through the 12 parts, I'll assume they had different artists, it was all quite good. The artwork did seem more consistant during the TV series and thought it was quite good as well. One difference I thought was the battles were a little less bloody in the TV series compared to the OVA, I would say the Guyver 1 vs Enzyme fight was more brutal in the OVA. Being the OVA was direct to video and the TV series wasant probably had someting to do with it.
  5. Cool! Thank you very much LordSpleach.
  6. I didnt know abou the trading card, thats pretty cool. I'm mostly after the US version that manga entertaiment did but I wouldn't mind having good images of yhe UK ones as well. From looking around the net, the images of the covers are all pretty small so you cant get a really good look at them. I do think the UK and US releases had different covers.
  7. I was wonfering if anyone had the 12 Guyver OVA VHS covers from Manga Entertainment that they could post? I have the 2 DVD's that Manga put out but I'd like to get a good look at the other covers. I would certaintly apprecite anyones assistance and thanks in advance.
  8. Is this the image you are looking for? I recently did a bunch of screen captures and this is one of them. Hope this helps.
  9. Thanks Ryuki, I decided I would just do my own thing on the colors. That why I decided to give Gigantic Guyver the same color that I gave to Guyver 1.
  10. Here are some more that I did. Comments are welcome of course.
  11. Why thank you symbol. I did a bunch more and messing around with the software I think I fond a better flesh tone.
  12. Thanks for your opinion BannaKing and your advice. I colored on a bunch of manga images today and I did them close to official colors so I may go back and play with the coloring and do my own spin in them.
  13. What is every ones opinion. When I attempt to color manga images should I stick to the official colors if they appeared in the manga or just try and do my on thing coloring wise? Opinions would be appreciated. Thanks.
  14. Thanks BannaKing, The best way to do that would be to experiment with the colors, correct?
  15. I tried my hand at coloring some Guyver manga panels with Gimp. I never really tried coloring the manga too much before and don't really know much at all about the software. I didn't color Mizuki's hair in these, I thought it looked like a pretty daunting task and I didn't think I would be able to color all the strands of hair. Feel free to comment.
