ハングリーウルフ / Hungry Wolf

ハングリーウルフ / Hungry Wolf (9/20)



  1. How long has a title for volume 33 been on the Wikipedia page? Someone brought it up on the subreddit.
  2. Vol 1 = $15, 2 = $20, 3 = $25, 4 = $30 (new), 6 = $37 (new). I'm currently buying Reborn Vol 5 from someone on the Guyver subreddit, so i just need Armageddon vol 7. Then I'm gonna buy the Japanese volumes from 8 and above and try to read them!! I have almost all the translations on HDD but I'd love to be able to read the Japanese(with Furigana) myself.
  3. I just got two more Viz manga in the mail, and I'm using a Funko Legacy of all things as a new type of Zoanoid. I mean, Funko? Who knew?
  4. Can I just say, I so much love that you guys took my thread seriously. Thanks and sorry I wasn't here for most of it.
  5. First of all, let's look at the issues with Guyver: Dark Hero being canon: - We have to ignore the first American movie entirely. It copies and Americanizes too many events that happened in Japan, and basically replaced the manga. Solution: Not hard, just don't watch it. - Then, If we omitted the scenes with adult Asian American Mizuki, the story of Sean Barker is actually different enough that it isn't copying too much in the manga, like the first movie did. Solution: Skip the opening scenes until Sean is already in Utah and meets Corey. IMO, It's more mysterious that way, not knowing Sean is the Guyver yet. Ignore the part where Mizuki Segawa is mentioned by the government agent later. - Sean's Guyver unit is not nearly as strong as Sho's The Mega smasher is nowhere as destructive The elbow blades don't vibrate at all, The armor comes from inside the host and not from another dimension No real solution to these, but despite these differences, it's similar enough to say "Hey, that's a Guyver Unit!" - I guess humans walking in the spaceship raises some questions, was Sean able to disable all of the defense mechanisms that try to melt whoever goes inside? If I remember correctly, in the manga, the humans like Mizuki, Tetsuro, and the scientists did board the spaceship when they were escaping, so Sho had made it safe for them somehow. I think this movie could easily take place at the same time as what is going on in Japan. I would even go so far to say it could be a prequel. It definitely takes place before X Day, or when Chronos is in the public eye. Also, I like to think that the part where the manga mentions the dead advent ship, that it could have been near the same cave as in Utah in Dark Hero, but they found an unusable ship with no Guyver units instead. An added bonus: If you have friends that are curious about getting into Guyver but they don't like older anime or don't want to read the manga right away, show them this movie. Yeah it spoils a few things, the biggest being the spaceships and the advents, but I don't think it's a bad intro to these things either. Then when your friends say "that was awesome", You say "wait till you get to the OVA and the manga!". Your thoughts?
  6. If possible, Guyver could use a Hunter X Hunter 2011 treatment. The reason I liked HxH 2011 so much is because I had already seen the original tv series twice, they used a lot of the same VAs, and the characters looked and acted the same. Just ignoring the lack of gore in the Guyver 2005 series for a second, it had all new VAs, different looking characters, different personalities, different events in the story, it was a mess. If we got a new Guyver show right now, and even if it didn't have the original VAs, but they still SOUNDED similar, looked like the manga/ova characters, same events in either, I think even without ultraviolence, it would be more popular. Plus, series can totally still have gore, so if it was ultraviolent too, all bets are off, it would be the best adaptation.
  7. I happen to think the human creation myth, coupled with Alkanphel's vendetta against the advents for trying to destroy our planet, and the question of Sho being more of a villain to the world because Alkanphel is trying to save it with the Zoaloards and Zoanoids, is actually a pretty strong concept. The best part is that, in many cases, not all of Chronos is bad, and some characters have very grey standings. When I watched the Hades Project Zeorymer OVA, I definitely got the same vibes, based on how Takaya followed the "bad guys" POV. Guyver is not just a good vs evil story, that's part of why it appeals to me.
  8. Guyver and Berserk both started around the same time. Both are dark. Both are "still going". Only one has WAYYYYY more recognition than the other. It's not fair. "Have you heard of Berserk?" - "Oh I love Berserk, thankfully I can always find the manga at a bookstore when I finish a volume" "Have you heard of Guyver?" -- "you mean MacGyver?" --"No this guy" *shows pic* "Oh, isn't he from that really horrible movie with Mark Hamill?"
  9. Honestly, I thought it had more to do with whichever unit they end up with, rather than the user. In the 2005 series, they showed Agito's unit as black and red even before it takes him over, and I thought that was a nice detail. Guyver II-F has a pink unit because the manga jumped the shark to have fan service. I'm not complaining, I'm just telling it like it is. No scientific reason, she's just "the pink ranger, pink cause she's a girl". Imagine if Lisker's unit was also pink. He wouldn't have been as intimidating, but he still would have kicked ass.
  10. I was thinking this figure from Sakamoto Desu Ga would make a good Sho with a head switch: https://myfigurecollection.net/item/287879 He wears a standard Japanese uniform like in the show, and he's sized proportionately to the BFC figure. I have seen some Kamen Rider figures where the jacket is open if you want a more dynamic look. I'm still considering which head to use (Yeah I'd have to buy 2 figures to make this, but worth it). It's probably super easy to find another figure to match figma proportions if you collect the figma instead. Hell, you could even have 2 heads, one for the manga version and another for the 2005 tv series. Also, maybe there are ways to make the other characters. Maybe instead of the model version of Mizuki, we could mod another character. Would be cool to have a Tetsuro, Natsuki and Agito. I was considering only characters that can stand in the same physical space of their alter egos, for display purposes, like how a Guyver appears whole and closed up before it takes over the user. Although, you could also make characters like Aptom before he transforms (or half-morphs) into his monster form. We would really need a Zoalord figure of Shizu before we made a human one though, unless you just want a Shizu, which is fine. What do you think?
  11. Let's just go off that, throw caution to the wind lol. I actually found a cool thread about Kid Goku's strength: https://comicvine.gamespot.com/goku/4005-19765/forums/the-kid-goku-respect-thread-1611793/ My initial guess was that Guyver in its base form could be as strong as Goku after his training with Master Roshi, and then after Korin Tower, Goku surpasses the power of a Guyver, because it seemed when he tried to fight Mercenary Tao, that was when physics went off the rails. Like I said that's just a guess, considering they can both jump high, punch through brick walls etc. Note that the only outlier would be speed, no Guyvers or zoanoids can do the after image technique or are super fast, but the Guyver does react super fast to things. I need to know more about the Guyver's abilities In detail, to say that for sure. 7 tons sounds super weak and I would have thought Spider-Man was weaker.
  12. Wait wait wait wait. Guyver can only lift 7 tons?? But Malmot picked up a box truck and threw it into the ground(in the OVA). Then, Gregole overpowers Malmot. Then Guyver I overpowers Gregole with ease. Is that really only 7 tons of force?
  13. This happens on volume ten from Guyver Advocacy, pages 168-170. Imakarum has some of the same powers as Alkanphel and cut off Aptom's leg. Ends at page 181. Keep looking around for the rest of the chapter, some sites have uploaded them scattered.
  14. We all know the Guyvers are immensely strong, fast and powerful. Plus they have pretty amazing awareness using the orbs in their helmets, and the ability to react very quickly(mostly referring to 2005 anime when Guyver I shot down a bullet headed for Tetsuro) which is also a skill. However that's just in one fictional universe. So what other characters have near the same attributes in American comics and other anime? For instance, one specific character has been bothering me. Goku. Now the main difference between a Guyver and a Z Fighter is that a Guyver's strength is always constant, and if they need more power, they just summon their Gigantic armor, but let's start by just focusing on a Guyver's basic form. A Z Fighter like Goku, more importantly the Saiyan race constantly improves their strength. So let's say at the start of Dragon Ball, Goku was physically weaker, slower and less powerful than a bio armor. But as Dragon Ball went on, Goku became more and more stronger, faster, powerful and aware, that even as a child, he surpassed a Guyver. My question then is what part of the manga/anime did Goku and a Guyver have the same attributes? Aside from Goku, what other characters can you think of that have the same attributes? I was just reading Spider-Man who famously has the proportionate strength of a Spider, but is he as strong as a Guyver? If not, who in the Marvel universe is? Other comic universes? If I remember Correctly, a Guyver Gigantic is 100x stronger than a Guyver, if I'm wrong, please correct me! If so, then, all of a sudden, none of the characters from before(with CONSTANT attributes) can compare. Then, who does from anime and comics with constant attributes? How about Goku in another part of his life? Let's leave Exceed out of the discussion, because one, it would be kind of weird with Exceed fighting a 6 ft tall person, and 2, I'm not fully caught up in the Guyver manga, I don't want to hear spoilers about more Exceed appearances. Thanks!
  15. Hey Guyver1, I like how you had put the figma guyvers in front of the Zoanoids in this photo. In your opinion, How do the figma scale with the Zoanoid figures? I only have my 1/10 Guyver I so far and I'm still considering which line to stick with, BFC or figma+BFW. Expensive proposition either way, but Guyver IIF is a steal right now. According to this site: http://warriorguyver.com/gfa/cronosenemy/index_mainpage_files/height.htm Zerbebuth is supposed to be 7.5 feet tall, so even at figma height IMO, those BFW figures aren't really doing it justice, but it does look a lot better than putting 1/10 figures with 1/12 figures.
