  1. New Guyver Figma's

    I wonder if Figma can do a release of the next chapter of the manga? That would be nice...
  2. New Chapter status?

    I saw it in the bookstore yesterday and picked it up to check out the contents page and, yep, nothing.
  3. New Chapter status?

    Was this tweet recent? I've not checked twitter in ages...
  4. New Chapter status?

    This is the monthly ritual now isn't it? Haha! All we can do is laugh. No amount of bellyaching is gonna get this serialized any sooner. He's lost interest and is finding it hard to motivate himself to carry it on I reckon. I'd just forget it about if I were you. (Completely contradictory of course since I keep checking back here every month myself.)
  5. Petition to finish the Guyver anime

    You should start a petition calling for Takaya to end the manga instead. Overseas publishers ain't going anywhere near the Guyver until it's finished. Fact. I admire your dedication to the cause though... EDIT: Oh wait, you're talking about the anime. Doh!
  6. New Chapter status?

    Still nothing, huh? Another month of silence it is then....
  7. New Chapter status?

    To echo the sentiments of others, yes, this is indeed getting tedious now. It's gotten to the point now where I can't even be bothered to check if he's actually done anything each month. The guy's got no excuse for his silence on the project. Sorry but, "busy with action figures" just isn't a good enough reason anymore. Shame.
  8. New Chapter status?

    Aye that I did. As expected, despite me messaging them in Japanese, I got no reply at all. I think, if Takaya just said "Sorry but I'm gonna be busy for a year", I wouldn't mind in the slightest. It's just that he and Kadokawa are being totally silent and not even letting us know what's going on. That's what annoys me. If he cared about his fanbase, he would reach out in some way. He doesn't though. There's no defending the guy, he should say something. Period.
  9. New Chapter status?

    Just as long as those plastic figurines are being made who cares about the actual manga, right? I agree. This is beyond monotonous now.... I still think the biggest kicker in all of this is the fact that the very last we saw of that lazy tosser is when he said "I really gotta get a move on with the manga and bring it to it's climax" in that interview. .....Well, he certainly ain't done bugger all since has he?
  10. Does Apollon's name help tell us who he is?

    Sure, it's incorrect. I actually went through all this with Jess quite some ago in another thread concerning some of the names so It might be worth scanning back through those and you'll find it. Wikipedia is often wrong when it comes to romanization of japanese words and this is a perfect example. How about you try typing アポルオン into this very widely used online Japanese dictionary? http://translate.weblio.jp/ Or check out the Duel Masters trading card game Japanese Wiki page? http://duelmasters.wikia.com/wiki/Apollyon_Worm,_the_Parasite My point is, it's only Guyver fans that misspell his name as "Apollon" due to a honest mistake when the advocacy first encountered his name. They probably looked at that same wiki page with the mistranslation that you provided too... I hope I don't come across as brazen in any way it's just that it's become a pet hate of mine. After all, you'll find very little (if any) evidence outside the Guyver community to support that アポルオン is translated as Apollon. If you can find some, feel free to share. Hope that helps!
  11. Does Apollon's name help tell us who he is?

    Yeah "Apollon" was a mistranslation. The correct translation of his name is Apollyon since that is what the original Japanese says. There aren't any deeper mixes of cultures or whatever it's simply the same name as the god he is named after; Abaddon, or "Apollyon" in Greek which is where the Japanese translation comes from.
  12. New Chapter status?

    That's uncalled for man. Come on, you're better than that. Yeah, this hiatus ain't showing any sign of ending is it? I'm not even sure I care anymore at this point. Shame.
  13. The Guyver OVA cover art?

    Haha! Yeah you could say I'm a fan. I'm close friends with the creator so I'm actually a fan of all his stuff! thanks a bunch mate!
  14. The Guyver OVA cover art?

    I'm not interested in scans of the Guyver VHS covers but would you be so kind as to scan the full sleeves (back, front, and spine) for Urotsukidōji? I'm going to be writing an anime entry for the Overfiend movies on my Toshio Maeda blog ( https://tentaclelounge.wordpress.com/ ) and those scans would be really helpful!! Thanks Masamune!
  15. New Chapter status?

    Haha! Just being silly. I thought it was ingenious play on the dude's name, personally! Ha!
