  2. Explanation? No. he can do whatever he wants with his life. But confirmation whether or not to continue hoping for more? Yes. We absolutely do deserve that.
  3. Nope. The only thing that has "changed" is that Japanese Twitter conversations have increased because they have been worried now that Miura has passed away, that the same thing might happen to Guyver.
  4. It has now been 5 years since we have gotten our last chapter. This is the last page from the last chapter we ever got. Jabir running away from his fight with Darkness Exceed, leaving his comrade Luggnagg (or ball boy as we call him in chat) all alone.
  5. CORRECTION The Vault contents are a mix of Viz volumes and Advocacy volumes, and are not complete. I do not know why this is. I will investigate further. ---------------------------------------------------------------
  6. I don't know exactly if there is any documentation on the movie version, but here is the Visual Data Files page on the Manga version of the Relic ship. If you need more, youll have to look up volumes 6, 7 and 8 of the manga as those deal with the Relic and use of it.
  7. As far as I know, only the official Chuang Yi volumes have ever done the first 7 volumes in english (I believe they made it to volume 10). And those are pretty rare so I doubt anyone will ever scan them properly. I hadn't even heard of Hobby Japan, but it looks like they did some chapters into volume 4... But their last release was in 2012. So unfortunately, what your looking for doesn't quite exist.
  8. Apollyon first appeared after the Dragonlord incident when he collected Khan's Zoacrystal (End of book 25). The prevailing theory, with any kind of evidence, is that Apollyon is Imakarum. Imakarum's goal is simply to cure Archaphel of these sleeps he has to deal with. He doesn't care what Archanphel's or Cronos' plans are. The most simple evidence of Imakarum being Apollyon, is that he appeared before Barcas lost the Arizona HQ, who then went to the Isle of Silha to visit Archanphel. During that time Imakarum was there and with Barcas sensing something about Archanphel's power, and after Barcas leaves, Imakarum says some cryptic things like " And the next is..." (see books 26 and 27 for the last Imakarum scenes we have had) The next time we are on Silha, Apollyon has brought the Segawa siblings there to take care of Archanphel. He is then constantly bringing food and necessities for them on the island for them. If Imakarum is not Apollyon, where is he? He is fixated on trying to heal Archanphel. Why would someone else be trying to help on their secret island? Why is Apollyon taking care of Archanphel on Silha with modern technology? How did Apollyon know the Segawa's? All these are important questions that have only one answer that makes sense: Apollyon is Imakarum. As to why he is so powerful? He was repaired in Archanphel's own bio-pod and given a giant burst of energy by Archanphel. He seems to be either have been reprocessed, or evolved due to Archanphel making him more like himself initially.
  9. No, he is not. Whatever is effecting him only means he can't do anything about his current situation. We know that every-time he uses his powers he has to rest longer and longer. Whatever Apollyon has planned does not seem to be Archanphel's plan either. He is only with the Segawa siblings because Apollyon forced them into helping take care of Archanphel. In the scene with the siblings, he doesn't smile, or show any real emotion. Archanphel's goal is, and has always been to go into space with his army that he created, to show his creators what he could accomplish. He doesn't care about most people, nor does he really care about humanity as a whole. They are just potential soldiers for his army. He's really only shown to seem to care about Balcus and Imakarum. Imakarum being special because Archanphel seemingly made him himself.
  10. https://io9.gizmodo.com/godzilla-vs-kongs-director-talks-spoiler-culture-and-t-1846546185 An article about the Director and how spoilers were so poorly handled, especially for this one. I knew about Mecha Godzilla many months ago because of the toys.
  11. Depends. The 1989 OAV is great, at least for the first 6 episodes, to bring new people into Guyver. The violence and short story works and flows well. Great music too (original dub or Japanese Subbed) The 2005 series is great for all the added and expanded content. The original manga wasn't well written and needed an update. As a fan of the lore I loved it... But for new fans, it really wasn't anything special to bring them into the fandom ( I always rail against the marketing for it. Such a terrible decision).
  12. So far, that is what is assumed, yes. They likely also did not think that an injured creation of theirs could destroy the planetoid they sent at Earth.
  13. Black Widow is to be released on Disney+ Premier Access (yes you have to pay extra) on July 9th.
  14. No, they never thought about giving anything one of their units. It was never in their "plans" so to speak. The "Units" were not called "Guyver" until after Guyver 0 actively betrayed them. It literally is said that one day they just decided to see what would happen if they did. And it shocked and amazed them. It'd be interesting to see what would have happened if Guyver 0 had listened and removed the unit, they might not have even realized that they become "Out of Control" when merged with it. they could have bio-boosted an army who might have retaliated. It was only after Guyver 0 betrayed them that they started to think about what would happen if something more power got their unit... And Archanphel having argued with them about what to do about Guyver 0 likely did not help his fate.
  15. Guyver is OLD. It hasn't bent to the tropes of this era that make things popular. And that is another reason why I still like it. It never caved to what was popular like some series do. The whole basic premise of Guyver has been done over and over again, and constantly been refined into other popular tropes... but Guyver is originally from 1985, and is still heavily influenced by this... Especially since anyone trying to get into the manga or anime have to contend with it's age. And some of the early stuff hasn't aged well. The first 6 episodes of the 1989 OAV are still the best thing to show new potential fans... but its age is showing too... There are no HD re-releases to make it look better... And the Manga Entertainment version is a lesser version when compared to the original release by AD Vision. The 2005 TV series just wasn't enough like the 89 OAV, despite the TERRIBLE marketing campaign claiming it was "The New Face of Ultra Violence"... When it was a TV series and could not, and would never have anything I would remotely consider "Ultra Violence". If it was an OAV and did have "Ultra Violence", the 2005 series would have been received a lot better... As Gory violence is a hook that brings people to watching it. But in the end, the 20005 series was... Boring? As a fan I loved the extra story bits and whatnot... But it wasn't anything special or exciting for new people. And THEN you throw in all the delays and gaps in releases of the manga (5 years at the end of April) and it is no wonder few people ever care about it. The only reason I feel that we are getting the statues and figures, is that Max Watanabe of Max Factory is a personal friend of Takaya, and Guyver helped build his company with the early model kits. Hell, the Bio Fighter series of figures predates Figma figures. And I guress whomever runs Prime 1 studios must also be a fan. Or they were paid a lot to make the statues.
