    Help with getting into Gundam

    Seed for me was one that I started enjoying, despite some of the characters, because I latched onto one specific character and thought G Saviour is no worse that the first live action Guyver movie... but completely forgettable though.

    Help with getting into Gundam

    I wouldn't say that they are good or worse... I mean some of the UC stuff isn't great either. But, the thing with the Alternate Universe is that some can be VERY different than what "Gundam" originally is. Sticking with UC Gundam first will definitely give a better foundation to what Gundam is. Most of the AU's are very good, but tend to mix the way the series can be defined. Like G Gundam can be considered basically Dragonball Z Gundam. It's heavily martial arts based and handles things VERY differently. Some people liked this, some hate it. It really is better to get the grounding of what original Gundam is, THEN move into the alternate universes. ...then again, some of the AU's are my favorties... Like Gundam 00 and G Gundam.

    New Chapter status?

    There were 2 chapters yes. I'm at work and can't check, but here are the links to the threads when the raws were released. Dunno if the links still work though. If not, will see if I still have them when I get home: http://www.japan-legend.com/forums/topic/8535-february-chapter-guyver-2016-02-28/ http://www.japan-legend.com/forums/topic/8572-guyver-june-2016/ Unfortunately the translated chapters are still under the rules of the Guyver Advocacy Team and requires following their rules to access them.

    What is the most accurate Guyver wiki/info dump?

    Various reasons... But they were all personal reasons, so they didn't make much sense to anyone else at the time. Theoretically, yes. But with Wiki's, there is always a chance that your entry can be edited/changed and/or you changed something that someone else wrote and they or you are not happy about it. That's why the original one here was more submission based I believe. Changes had to be approved by admin before being uploaded. It can be a lot of work for something that might just disappear seemingly randomly.

    What is the most accurate Guyver wiki/info dump?

    We had one, but unfortunately it was nuked when the old management left. Restarting it has been a task deemed far too much work, but little drive to create at this point. We try and get to every question we can here at a hopefully decent turnaround, but other than that the existing wiki's are the best that is out there.

    What kind of Guyver video-game would you like to see?

    This (Platinum are crazy talented) or a a Dynasty Warriors/Musou Guyver title. They have made some excellent bloody/gory anime titles thus far ( Berserk, Fist of the North Star) that it would be pretty brilliant.

    Guyver- Where are we now?

    There are 2 single chapters ( shorter than volume chapters. One is 9 pages, the other is 13 pages.) after book 32 was released.

    Avengers: Endgame

    I mean, I was ok with it in the end... Now, the big question is whether or not Marvel can keep up the success. People like to claim that Iron Man was a tough choice and call him a C or B-lister back in the day... The thing is though, he was still a large part of the #1 (non-mutant) Super team. Some of the rumored projects I've heard of so far, just do not have me interested at all, other than sequels to series that were still ongoing from before Endgame. But I guess we'll just have to see. Those films will still be a few years away.

    Guyver no more?

    Not necessarily. At a con like this, I've seen that walking up and talking to guys the creators of the works, like Steve Wang, is pretty common. It's more of a "Show and tell" style convention as they have their works out on display. So if this guy who is "In the know" about Takaya is showcasing some of his works, he would be on the floor talking with people. And if the focus of the conversation was turned to Guyver, I can see it coming out if they indeed knew about it. All that being said of course, it's still hearsay and not any kind of proof at all... But the situation described COULD have happened given the type of con and circumstances.

    Guyver no more?

    Well, with the info from that Reddit post, it seems to line up a bits and pieces of rumors we've heard... And the fact we know he was looking for an assistant a few years ago. I'd still take everything lightly as there is no confirmed source. Just because a guy says he talked to a guy who may be in the industry... It's worse than second or third hand info at this point. Interesting though.

    New Chapter status?

    Unlikely. Shonen Ace still lists Guyver as one of their titles. And a movie or TV show planning would not have this long of a hiatus with no word.

    Guyver’s Defense

    That definitely seems like it might be a typo. Will talk to the boys and make sure that gets fixed.

    Diablo 3

    Haha, yeah. It's really basic. Not surprising for a game that was originally released in 2012. Just be thankful the Switch version is the newest version... The original was even worse. They will really need to step up their game ( HA! Literally) for Diablo 4.

    New Guyver Figma's

    To be fair... The Bio-Fighter line were proto-types for what Figma would become. So shrinking their Guyver figures should be a no brainer. ...they just need to do more...

    New Chapter status?

    The end of April 2016 will be 3 years since the last individual chapter, but February 2016 was the release of Vol 32, the last volume of manga we got.

    Faviort or Currently Reading Manga

    I have like... 100 or so comics I am "Currently Reading". I'm a sucker for action or popular shounen series, and have kind of fallen for the "Isekai / Another World" trope... Some are just terrible, but some are really fun. A lot are monthly series, and some slowly get translated and get large dumps at times. But considering I have a lot of downtime at work, having something to read certainly helps... And my list grows as new series come out and others don't end. But a few of my favorites... - Ultraman - A sort of alternate sequel to the original Ultraman series. - World Trigger - back after a long hiatus due to artists health. - Goblin Slayer/GS Year One - Because awesome? - The New Gate - Same basic setting as Sword Art Online (ie medieval Death Game), but with a twist. And much more light hearted. - Tensei Shitara Slime Datta Ken - There is a reason this got an anime. Just plain fun series.

    New Chapter status?

    Yes, 2 chapters were released after volume 32 came out. Just makes the situation seem even weirder.

    Diablo 3

    The set armor is only available in Adventure Mode and not through the campaign. And not all sets have weapons ( but usually have a legendary or two that can assist nicely) You have to finish 4 chapters of set objectives. Some are killing things on certain difficulties, others involve doing stuff with the 3 main merchants etc... And getting to level 70 is only a chapter 2 objective. You will get pieces of gear from completing chapters 2, 3 and 4. Enough gear so that after chapter 2, you can use the first set ability; after chapter 3 you unlock the second, and after 4 you have the full set. You can still get random set gear like normal randomly, but requires higher difficulties to get higher chances of drops. (The guaranteed set parts can be outclassed by ones you find.) The nice thing is that once you complete a set, the final bonus is usually SO good that you can jump up a few difficulty levels with little problems... or simply WRECK everything on lowers. Once the season is done, your seasonal character just becomes a normal character, and your loot and Paragon exp will combine with your other characters. Newest season starts Jan 18th. Seasons last just over 3 months.

    Any World War II era weaponly effective against Zoanoids?

    We do know he can do something... As during the Gigantic Dark attack on Arizona, he was thinking of entering the battle, and was stopped by the other two Zoalords because they said his ability for the protection Archanphel only. ( I am at work without access to the page of manga) It's true we don't know the scope of his abilities, other than enormous telepathic powers... And he is likely very different than the Zoalords he made... And I mean, Waferdanos wasn't even human at first... So Barcas could be anything. But so far, per your argument, you've not stated any evidence to support that he isn't a "Processed Zoalord", other than speculation. And speculation is fine, unless evidence contradicts it... I'll be splitting this conversation as it has little to do with the topic, but definitely worth saving. *edit... or not. The split function has changed a bit in a previous update. Going to have to play with this.

    Diablo 3

    The seasons have only one big benefit: Armor Sets (though some have pets and/or wings) You're guaranteed one per season ( per account sadly), but now you do have to grind to lvl 70 before you can get any of the gear. ( before you could get them early... but they would drop at lower levels... And unlike Destiny 2, there is no way to lvl up gear you like). Some people really like the armor sets, some say they "ruin" the game as they can be pretty overpowered. I basically power through the lvls to 70 ( their bounty system is actually really easy to lvl with), get the armor set and maybe do the set dungeon if I can... but that is it. There are layers upon layers of bounties and rewards... but most of them are portrait pics. By getting the set you will also earn whatever the extra bonuses are, like the pets or wings. And how fast you lvl is all based on knowing if you can take on the next lvl of difficulty. I can usually get one done in 2-3 evenings if I really push and/or have a buddy. *edit* But you know, now that I say that out loud... There isn't much reason to be farming them when they isn't likely going to be anymore DLC... And D3 doesn't have "raids" or the like.

    Any World War II era weaponly effective against Zoanoids?

    I actually forgot about this small part of the story, where Barcas is clearly already changed into a Zoalord and stated to be "420 years ago". As for whether or not they had Zoanoids right away... It was likely one of the first things they did. If you think about it logically, Archanphel must have made Barcas into a Zoalord on his own, but Barcas is assumed to be left to work alone for some time due to Archanphels condition. The relic ship's memory units would give him a lot of info on how to manufacture zoaforms... but as we know with Guyot, the zoalords weren't likely just "made" and Barcas likely had to practice a lot. All this being considered however, things like Vamore and other bio-blasters are seemingly "new-ish" (Chronos Japan is said to have developed it, but cannot find when the branches were established) as well as Hyper Zoanoids being even more recent. So the Zoanoids they likely had early on were probably scout/muscle types. And considering World War 2 is basically 50 or so years before the Guyver series starts, I think they would have a bunch around... especially when you consider how long it would take to build these underground bases and whatnot. So that being said, a lot of the high caliber rifles, tanks and explosives would likely have been able to kill normal Zoanoids. In most cases, unless it was a head shot or a lucky shot, multiple rounds would likely have been required even for the most powerful rifle considering the shear size of a lot of Zoanoids... But do-able for sure. Anything that could piece a metal plate likely stood a chance of doing damage to most Zoanoids, as most basic ones are not well armored and only have touch skin. It's when the hypers start coming that normal high power rifles and explosives have issues with ( as we see from Zeus' Thunderbolt).

    Diablo 3

    I've had it since day 1 of launch. the terrible. terrible. terrible launch. I stopped playing for a long time when the auction house and loot grind were becoming to much. Was playing with my brother, and while we beat it on normal and hard... he was having a hard time during hard because he wasn't playing with the auction house and his equipment was lacking. I was doing my best to keep up with new gear, but it took too much time. Came back for Reaper of Souls when a friend told me they had fixed a lot of it, and stayed for the Necromancer. Now I at least try to get the basic season requirements done every season since I have picked it back up. If I had to choose my favorite profession... they would likely be Demon Hunter, Wizard and Nercomancer in no particular order... but having played with them all, I can say there are builds I like for all the classes... Which is probably why it has me coming back so often if the season has a good armor set that I don't have for another class.

    New Chapter status?

    No, not at all. Quite the opposite. All the women who make the covers are usually from fanservice heavy series that are male fantasy series. It's still very much a SHONEN ( ie male teens) targeted book.
