    Guyver Back on the Big Screen

    I literally didn't see it until the very end.

    Guyver Back on the Big Screen

    She does. And the movie manages to capture the feel of the manga pretty well. It encompasses elements from the first four volumes and the OVA. Also: Edward Norton!

    Guyver Back on the Big Screen

    If 'Alita' does well... Who knows, we might get a few more manga-based movies. And 'Guyver' has surprisingly much in common with 'Alita' - identity, violence, how to remain yourself...

    Guyver’s Defense

    What does that mean, though?
  5. Currently watching the 5-episode "Master of martial hearts"; finale tonight. It's pretty weird; on the one end it's an ecchi girl-fights-girl-in-a-tournament-for-a-supreme-prize show, on the other hand it has an incredibly sinister undertone, like it's a vicious parody of rather grubby genre. (edit:) Yep. God, that was dark. Dark as Hell. Don't think I've ever seen a story where everybody including the protagonist turns out to be a monster.

    Guyver (pre gigantic and Exceed) vs Doomsday (1992)

    Possible. They included Superman's cellular tissue when they made him regenerate after he was mostly desintegrated after 'Our Worlds At War', so he would have a sensitivity to Kryptonite and hence could be controlled. That worked about as well as you might expect. They couldn't even control him on Apokalips.

    New Chapter status?

    He can't just quit it and leave us holding our collective bag. It's un-Japanese.

    Doomsday was not native to Krypton.

    Saitama VS Guyver Gigantic

    Depends on the venue, like with Goku. In his own universe, Saitama is invincible except against King, but in the Guyver universe he might be just another drop-out sarariman.

    Any World War II era weaponly effective against Zoanoids?

    Or maybe there really still is a living ship under the temple. The ship's acids would not prove a problem for a Zoalord: they can all generate force fields capable of stopping directed attacks, so what mechanically amounts to water would be no threat. Which makes it a little strange to think Barkas didn't simply go in himself. Perhaps he was forbidden to do so by Archanfel. In fact I think he probably would have had to. Mystery...

    Wait, what? I know of only one. The one that ends with Jabir flying away in his Zoaform.

    Any World War II era weaponly effective against Zoanoids?

    Yeah. 1985 - 400 = 1585. Remember the science did not exist yet. At all. Even in concept. Archanfel had the ability to control Zoanoids, but I doubt he had the knowledge on how they were created. So in practice, nobody on the planet knew what DNA was, or even what cells are, let alone how they worked. Barcas would have had no idea where to even start (Did Archanfel even ever witness Zoanoid production at all?). Nor did he have the tools. They should have made more out of the concept that Chronos guided human civilization to develop science. Shin never said he had been processed 370 years ago. The Zoalords' battle forms may well be a recent development, planned for centuries, but only put into practice once technology caught up enough and they had had plenty of time to experiment on Zoanoids. Remember that Caerleon started to age rapidly the moment his Zoa-Crystal had been removed, which suggests to me the aging retardation is caused by it, not by being processed (although we don't actually know what effect processing has on aging. How old do Zoanoids get?). The Zoanoid who imitated Mizuki was called Gelpess. It was a Lost Number with the unique ability to take on any human form. We have never seen Chronos make a clone, which is unnecessary anyway since Zoanoids can control anyone who has been processed, and it was stated that, for instance, any human could be made into a Ramotith.

    New Chapter status?

    Strange thing I just noticed (I noticed it because I finally received volume 32): The newest chapter is not in it. Also two interesting new Zoanoids got no files or even names. That happened before though. It's as annoying now as it was before.

    Any World War II era weaponly effective against Zoanoids?

    Initially I didn't realize what I was looking at. It took me re-reading it to get the perspective and it hit me that it wasn't just that Zoanoids were capable of surviving nuclear weapons, there was a monster the size of a skyscraper out there.

    Any World War II era weaponly effective against Zoanoids?

    Well... not all Zoanoids are bulletproof, not against rifle bullets, I should think. The heavier calibre machine guns should be able to injure most Zoanoids less invulnerable than Gregole.
  16. That's all, really. <Elf Be it with family, friends or just by yourself, may you have a great Yuletide.
  17. Physically merging with an alien??? That is so unclean it can't even be described. That's Tyranid territory.
  18. Man. The concept of a Guyver would make Imperials freak out, but Chaos warriors would LOVE it.

    DB Super - Galactic Patrol Prisoner Arc (spoilers)

    If he could drain Goku, maybe for once there'll be a fight not decided by just getting stronger and stronger.

    Elseworlds

    Hmm. I loved the Crisis. I remember, the first time I ever read it. I had bought the deluxe edition, hardcover, slipcase, dust cover illustrated by Alex Ross. Twelve issues, over 350 pages. I had only ever caught snippets. That night, in bed, I read all of it. And it was amazing. The Crisis was the capping stone to the Silver (and Bronze) age. For the longest time, capecomics were chronologically divided 'Pre-Crisis' and 'Post-Crisis'. It was written to celebrate 50 years of DC, and also served to streamline their superhero titles, bring all the heroes and villains into one universe and get rid of some worn-out concepts. There has, in truth, never been anything like it, nor could there ever be, because it did what had never been done; everything that came after could merely be imitation. The villain was the purest evil, the stakes, absolute. Heroes and villains died. Reality was changed for good. They will never be able to do it justice.

    Avengers: Endgame

    ...That didn't even occur to me. That would be very cool.

    Captain Marvel

    In the comics, Kree are not supposed to show emotion. Naturally, they are belligerent savages, but their culture harnesses this in enforced rationality. Like Klingons living like Vulcans. Especially in their early appearances, they viewed human emotions as the detrimental signs of an inferior species. Captain Mar-Vell even said "Our children never smile". So maybe that's why, and as Carol rediscovers her humanity, she will show more and more emotion.

    Elseworlds

    Funny. If anything, Apocalypse looks like Mobius, who, according to the New 52 reading of the story, is the identity of the Anti-Monitor before he was mutated by the Anti-Life Equation.

    Captain Marvel

    Hehehehe. Fury, green as he is in this movie, is already not buying this whole "Noble warrior heroes versus evil Skrulls" bs.
