  1. Some of you may have seen some of these if not all already if you were on certain Facebook groups or following me on Deviant art... but here is a dumps of artwork I have recently completed. GuyverC Gigantic - Originally just did the head and cropped out the body, since I just reused my Guyver Gigantic pic... But recently decided just to finish it off.

  3. We know that Cronos's biggest problem with its combat types is energy usage. Including the Zoalords. This is why their Zoacrystals are basically batteries to power their own Zoa forms. This is also likely why Aptom runs out of gas so quickly, because he does not have a battery to draw from... Where the Guyver draws its energy from the boost dimension/hyperspace... Thus why it is likely a Guyver Zoalord would be so powerful. And Aptom was not DESIGNED by Barcas to do what he can do. He was designed to mimic multiple types of Zoanoids, but was always considered a failure as they always came out weaker than wanted. It was Barcas trying to perfect his idea that forced the mutation into what he became... But Barcas had no idea what he was doing and only accidentally created what Aptom now is, and only found out after Aptom told him when he was absorbing Elegan.

  5. I think that part could benefit from a translation check. If I may.... (the original is written in katakana to indicate alien language, but I'm writing in hiragana to aid translation) お前たち”人類”の最も忌むべき形態”殖装体” それは危険きわまる”ガイバー”だ 制御不能でありながら強大な戦闘力を備えたこの”殖装体”の出現は 我々にとって比類なき脅威となるだろう 我々は先の事件を”中央”に報告し指示を仰いだ 事態を重くみた”中央”審議会が下した結論は... プロジェクトの打ち切りとおまえたちの”根絶”だ すでに”中央”は天体破壊規模”オペレーション”を発動した 我々もぐずぐずしてはおれぬのだ さらばだアルカンフェル YOU "HUMANITY"-S MOST ABOMINABLE FORM "BIO-BOOSTED BODY" IS THE EXTREMELY DANGEROUS "GUYVER" A "BIO-BOOSTED BODY" BOTH OUT OF CONTROL AND WITH POWERFUL FIGHTING STRENGTH HAS ARISEN AND BECOME AN UNPARALLELED THREAT TO US WE REPORTED THE INITIAL INCIDENT TO "CENTRAL" AND ASKED FOR INSTRUCTIONS (Central is a place, like a capital) "CENTRAL" COUNCIL ASSESSED THE GRAVE CIRCUMSTANCES AND MADE THE DECISION...

  7. No, it's all Greek based thinking. Zeus is the Child of the God Kronos/Cronus, and was the God who eventually defeated him and became King of the Gods. Just like what Agito wants to do. Defeat Cronos and take over.

  8. I've posted it before, but here is what I would do: - Guyot eventually uses the unit remover on Female Guyver 2, becomes an imperfect Guyver Zoalord. he will kill Balcus and Shin - Shizu will likely die to protect Agito, knowing she doesn't have much time left. - Apollyon fails to kill Guyot on his own and is injured. - Sho and Agito fight Guyot and with Agito's sacrifice, Guyot is destroyed - Apollyon takes the dying Archanphel and the Ark into space. - Sho lives on Whether or not the remover exists to remove Sho's unit or not I dunno... I mean our theory that the Guyver unit makes one immortal is just that, a theory.

  9. Welp, finally got through all 12 eps! It was actually quite a bit of viewing because I watched the dubbed versions first (both US Renditions and Manga) then on a whim I decided to watch the original raws! Was definitely worth it, had a blast reliving some old memories Raws for first six episodes: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCXFgiVsnRF0UAEjEHb3iQHA/videos The raws for the second half can be found on Dailymotion by Googling the JP titles on here: https://www.animenewsnetwork.com/encyclopedia/anime.php?id=675&page=25 - The majority of the Japanese titles used the format "Hook! Elaborative second chunk!" The US Renditions release sometimes stuck with this syntax (Terminal Battle! The Fall of Chronos Japan) and sometimes they just rolled it into one (Genesis of the Guyver); the Manga release, in contrast, kept the USR titles for the first six episodes but truncated the second half titles pretty noticeably. I will say, though, there's a stark quality about the Japanese title for episode five (戦慄!! ガイバー死す/Shudder!! Guyver Dies") that just... works. - The font for the JP title cards is glowing red kanji/katakana. It's foreboding and I love it. - The original ending sequences for episodes two and three end on shots of Guyver II and III respectively. I guess the English versions just reused the same sequence for the first six episodes? - There are moments here and there in the English dubs that were unvoiced for some reason and it's really jarring when you see them in Japanese. They're mostly grunts/reaction noises but they really do add a lot; for instance, when Lisker flips over Sho and tosses him into the wall during their fight, you hear quite a bit of verbalization from Takeshi Kusao and Norio Wakamoto. That slow upwards panning shot of Guyver II works a lot better with Wakamoto's mocking laughter over it, same with Kusao's freaked out yell when firing the Megasmasher to finish Lisker off. Also, if you close your eyes when watching it really sounds like Trunks just can't catch a break from Cell. - I'm not sure either of the Chronos mooks with accents (episode 2, episode 9) had Japanese dialects that warranted them. Not that I minded it any, it gave the scenes some color! - Common to all versions but I always got a kick out of Sho's dramatic kick on Elegen being the only bit of meaningful offense he lands on Team Five until Agito bails him out and tells him how to roast Gaster. Dude was a one-legged man in an ass-kicking contest until Guyver III showed up. - Also common to all versions; Sho's dumbass friends. They're the best. - The big Agito reveal in episode five has Sho kinda parrot what Makishima said (Makishima-san is... Chronos?); not exactly riveting dialogue, but it makes a touch more sense than having EN Sho act like he should have known all along for some reason. - The original version of episode six has a decently lengthy recap sequence before the opening that I can't recall being in either of the domestic versions...? - The fight with ZX-Tole, Sho, and Agito sounds drastically different depending on which version you watch. The Manga release has silence in the background, the US Renditions release has the first verse of Takeshi's Kusao's version of the OP as a backing track and the original Japanese has the second verse of Shinichi Ishihara's. I like the US Renditions one the best! - The original version of Part II's OP is cut slightly differently. - I don't have a damn clue how a hypothetical part III would have proceeded with Team Five long gone, even if they had been given a half-decent budget for the next run. - Finally - and this is 100% subjective - I ended up preferring EN Sho to JP Sho. Agonized death screams aside, I felt like Tom Fahn managed to channel the terrified teenager part of Sho a lot better; in contrast, Takeshi Kusao comes off like a legit badass a lot of the time which would have worked in any show besides Guyver where the protag's about as far from a badass as they come, even with the super-powered alien armor. Like half the time when Fahn does battle cries it sounds like a kid trying REAL HARD to sound intimidating and it's absolutely perfect for the novice that he was.

  10. Well, that's the beauty of what Marvel is doing. They take obscure characters and turn them to box office gold. Obviously if they keep on making movies or series about popular characters, sooner or later, the audience will have hype fatigue. I believe what Marvel is doing is to tell a story that spans multiple formats. Nevermind that one movie or series flopped, it's their relevance to the whole tale is what matters. Even Sony is riding on the Marvel bandwagon. Moon Knight may not be everyone's cup of tea, but the presence of the series is an important aspect to the whole phase. I mean, I'm a little let down with The Falcon and Winter Soldier, but I see their value as they put seeds in the show that the producers can sow later. The only thing they need to do is follow through, which Marvel has been very consistent with.

  11. I'm late to this thread but I have a good reason - the pen to my graphics tablet broke just before christmas so I couldn't finish drawing my traditional yearly guyver greeting to you guys. I just got a new one so I suppose it's more of a Happy New Year greeting than a Christmas one - so I hope everyone has ahappy new year!

  12. Been away a long time, sad to see that things haven't improved but then thats a risk with long running Manga. If, and lets not lose all hope here, but if Guyver never comes back lets not forget it. It was my first anime, and it's an amazing series even if it remains unfinished. These days I find myself watching one of the series that inspired Guyver, Ultraman as well as all it's sequels and spin-offs. I even see some of the inspirations for Zoanoids. Zx-tole Zetton Even now I think of Guyver even when I haven't watched the series in years.

  14. My memory may be hazy, but I had a theory pop into my head just now, as I finally reset my password that I had forgotten and am now back on the forum! Happy New Year everyone! Still patiently waiting for the next chapter, I see! Me too. Anyway, here's my off the top of my head theory: What if Alky activated Guyver 0's unit after using the Remover on the host, and that's what really scared the Creators away? Would explain why Apollyon wants the Remover from Guyot, no? I think Imakarum/Murakami is Apollyon, as much as I'd love for it to be an Advent, and I do think he could be their agent, in some fashion, as some stated above by others in this thread. It could also explain why Alky needs to rest for prolonged periods of time, because being a Guyver Zoalord was said to be unstable and too dangerous, if my memory is correct. Power overload. I think there's a possibility we weren't told the full story about the moon the Advents hurled at Earth. I could easily see Alky not being strong enough to stop it, and activating the Guyver unit as a last ditch attempt. Alky could be in need of all of his Zoacrystals back to control it, perhaps? If Apollyon is indeed Imakarum, perhaps he's being controlled telepathically, or his split personality is kicking up, and he was originally an Advent agent before Chronos got their claws on him. So many possibilities. It definitely *feels* like the Creators are going to make a reappearance going by the art in some of those panels posted above. Murakami started off as a "reporter", right? Then we found out he was a proto-Zoalord. Two personalities. Then Murakami became Imakarum. Two personalities. It could be a trend if we're to assume Imakarum is Apollyon? This is all wild speculation, of course. There's always the possibility that this is just a brand new character being introduced, but all the connections are too coincidental. Also, I can't remember whether or not it was revealed that Guyver 0's unit ended up being someone else's, so someone please inform me about that

  15. I would assume that it is because even when Guyot was chosen, Men were always only known as the stronger sex throughout history. It only makes sense he would choose male individuals who likely were succeeding in whatever field they were in when they were chosen. Remember, we're not talking decades. We're talking centuries ago when most were picked.

  18. Even if it's just "Central", the Uranus on Earth didn't make the choice. It was made for them and as you put it, Central pulled the tigger. Which means any Uranus that hung around by accident would have been killed with us too if not for Archanfel. But the story points to none of them staying behind, their just ships they were willing to let be destroyed.

  19. It is like that, yes. But it can also mean the seat of government. So essentially it is referring to the physical centre of power in their society, whether that be a HQ or a parliament or a Palace. But the kanji used are 'inside' and 'centre', and often used to mean seat of government or capital city or middle or heart.

  22. It's been awhile since I've been on here and posted my last post on apollyon's name. I'm sure there's a lot of you like me who grew up with guyver and now are adults and still are waiting and hoping for an ending. But since I've regained my password and I am back on I've been thinking about guyver and how I miss it. Also I am coming to the realization that we may never get an ending for this amazing series. So i'm wondering how would you guyver fans like to see it end? I wanna hear what your theories or wishes for the end are. Also tell me when you got into guyver and whose your favorite character.

  24. Thanks! ^^ Good point; his death may not have been permanent, but Sho still ate his words. Yeah, I can see that. I admit I also enjoy a lot of older dubs like the Guyver OVA series; even though things have come a long way since then. The cheesiness makes my day! Ah, I understand now; he did sound needlessly blasé at times.

I'd like to believe that this was what honed my hand and eye coordination. Sega Genesis was my second console, after the NES (or Famicom as it was popularly known here). Fond memories of playing Thunderfoce IV and Eswat.

  27. Sometimes no matter how hard you try to defend your own person. People have already made up their mind about you. In their mind and their perspective. You're the bad guy no matter what you say or do. There's nothing you can do to change that. It's called a witch hunt where someone or some people are going to hate on you regardless of how good your argument is. They're not open to seeing things from your point of view.

  30. Were ya able to find the U.S Renditions Dubs of episodes 7-12 online, or did ya have the tapes? The U.S Renditions dub tapes have the unique Lisker & Agito ending shots. It's unfortunate that Gravarthel didn't include them in his uploads, though it might've been an oversight on his part. I love those accents used in the dub, especially the Scottish Cronos Soldier! XD (I've memorized that entire scene BTW) Yeah, Yamamoto, Aota, and Nakanishi are pretty funny! XD I wish they showed up in the Manga. I also don't how they could've worked in Aptom gaining his new forms after his second fight with Sho with Team 5 outta the picture. Though I assume we would've seen Murakami telling them about his past and Sho would've fought Guyot along side Agito & Murakami. Then the stuff that happened in the basement would've played out. Agreed, Tom Fahn's voice and performance fit Sho very well!

  34. Not just in maximum carnage, but even in the most current comics he is gathering together the symbiotes to create his twisted view of a family. He also did this back in u.s.a.carnage and in the knull arc. Tora, it makes my heart warm to see you say that about carnage. As a mega spidey fan(some would call it obsession) I do get real annoyed when things are "off" even cosmetically. Norman's carnage had the white teeth and kinda grey underskirt until he mixed carnage with the goblin serum. And in the last venom movie, venom not having the white emblem on his chest bothered me like a OCD tic. Even the cartoons rarely get them right. Ultimate Spiderman cartoon carnage was a big let down.

  35. No the Creators were ****ting themselves because they realised what something like Archanfel could become with a unit, that is basically an uncontrollable god-being.

  36. No, the control medal is far more than a CPU. It is also an operating system that handles and regulates the bio-boost systems, as well as handles recording the data of the host for healing and the self defense systems. That much has been noted officially (included the VDF page regarding it). The regulation of the bio-boost system is also why there is a significant difference between Humans wearing the armor, and the creators wearing the armor, and why even they believed that it could get much worse. The problem is that we have only seen humans as Guyvers, but we do know that creators say that the humans get more than 10 times the boost from the unit. The Zoacrystals on the other hand, HAVE been proven to be essentially batteries. Zoa-forms have their abilities hard wired into their DNA, but cannot use them without energy. This is why things like the Libertus and Griselda require to be recharged in tubes if they overuse their powers, and why Carleon did not die and aged terribly after his crystal was removed. As well we have had Zoalords require rest or being placed in a bio-tube after over exerting themselves. The crystals don't seem to be able to regenerate power quickly. So if a unit bio-boosted on a Zoalord, it would not bio-boost exactly same way it does on a human and would likely adjust it levels and abilities for the new organism it just merged with. If the new organism can handle more energy, it is fair to say that the Unit could pull more energy quicker.

  37. I don't think that the Control Medal would actually merge with a Zoacrystal. As they are completely different types of biological technology. The Zoacrystal provides the user with enhanced strength, powers and psychic abilities. While the Control Medal in a Bio Booster Unit acts as the CPU for the Bio Booster Armor, and acts as a user input device for allowing the host to use the Bio Booster Armor. Essentially the Control Medal is nothing more than a computer, while the Control Medal can take control over the Bio Booster Armor if the host has been rendered unconscious or has had their brain damaged or destroyed. It's main function is to regulate the units power output, the armors essential functions (healing) and the activation of the armor's weaponry.

  38. The control metal does have a dimensional interlink, which means it can siphon energy from the boost dimension, but as you said the gravity globe does that to a larger extent. actually, we don't know what form that energy takes, but it is probably fairly efficient and the manga or anime has never shown any indications of harmful radioactive effects. it all seems to be pretty safe to be around. since the guyver organism can seemingly change some substances into completely different substances, there is a good chance this organism is capable of spontaneous fission/fusion. loose ions, cosmic rays, etc. would cause damage to the structures and material that it creates, so I imagine it must have a method to manage any excess.
    1 point
  39. The Control Medal doesn't power the Guyver, its a processor/control system and data storage device. If I remember Correctly the unit siphons a small amount of energy from Boost Space via the Gravity Orb.

  40. A plasma is ionized and the electrons move freely through it. That means any chemical properties the original material might have had are null and void. Also, organic molecules like enzymes are typically too large to occur in a gaseous state. They break down before they can do so; heat is not a friend of large molecules.

  41. This is why putting an exact science unto a fictional story isn't always a good thing. The art isn't a mistake it is the data file science doesn't support what Takaya had drawn and intended. In the end you've to leave the world of the Guyver to be it's own little sudo science existence where science fact and fiction mix a little. It's not just Guyver that does this, every comic / movie / story every written does the exact same thing unless it is based on historical fact.

  42. Again, using Dragonball is a poor source for comparison because they don't care about reality. At the time Goku completed his training with Roshi, he was already faster than most people can see. Physically they push that giant boulder, which was likely a few tons... but then can jump super high? Completely unbalanced as characters. So they might've been similar in pure physical strength at that point, but series like Dragonball rely on plot to determine how powerful someone actually is, or how much damage one can cause. So the scales are completely abnormal. Using Dragonball to compare most things is simply ludicrous in most cases. Even at its earliest forms. And sadly, so is the marvel universe. With all the retcons and depowers, new writers, plots etc... Spider-man can go from lifting a car over his head, to having trouble lifting one in the matter of 12-15 issues depending on what the story calls for. This is a big problem with the "western comics culture" and the way stories are done. A 6 foot tall being lifting 7 tons isn't super weak at all in its own world... But when you compare it to worlds with inconsistent power levels sure, it can look pretty terrible.

  46. He probably had a various number of abilities, Zoaknight, but seeing as his opponent had infiltrated the Ark and almost caused him to submit to his will, he was distracted. Also seeing that Apollyon could do the same things he could, and even manipulate his attacks against him, made Edward even more on edge instead of being focused on his opponent. Looks like he knew who his opponent was in the end, but until Takaya gives us the okay, we can only speculate.

  47. This popped in my head one day and it's been nagging me ever sense. I was wondering if the Unit ever bonded with someone who had a disease such as cancer, AIDS, leukemia, etc. Would the unit possibly remove it because the disease is attacking it's host and/or doing more bad than good. I know it may sound weird but like I said at the start its been bothering me. Anyways I'll leave you all to it.

  49. How about repairing old injuries? Say fixing a torn ACL? Adjusting the hosts eyes to no longer need glasses? I would think if the control medal of a normal guyver unit can reconstruct the host from a simple recording of the hosts DNA it would do so as the DNAsays it SHOULD be rather than how it was. To the best of my knowledge DNA does not determine the outcome of an injury. So let us say Sho had glasses before bonding, should he be able to se fine after donning the armor and thereafter?
