I am 99% positive the mangaka has given up and gone back to dentistry. The author had a great premise but took way too long to think about an ending.

No, it's more manga accurate, but the manga isn't good either.
>>
>>22652223
No. Watch the 1986 one-shot OVA for the tentacle rape scene, the 1989 12 episode OVA for a classic 80s violent anime, and the second American movie with David Hayter in it for an actually fairly decent schlocky action movie and don't touch anything else related to the franchise.

I remember reading somewhere that one of Takaya's biggest regrets with the story was killing off Lisker so quickly. One of the things I appreciated about the 2005 anime is how he sticks around just a little longer even if he meets his end the same way.

my only gripe with guyver is that at the last second, information arises about characters and scenarios after collision and confrontation, not before. like when GYRO destroyed the ship at relics point and we all thought the gang had died. there was never a statement prior which indicates that the ship had escape pods, and when they're alive in the next chapter, it's just glossed over with little to no explanation.

>Would you watch an American Guyver 3 movie featuring David Hayter and a new guy as Sean?

Yes. In fact, Steve Wang has had a script ready to go for years now. He just can't do shit about it because he doesn't have the film rights to the IP anymore and whatever publishing company that does isn't interested in working with him and the original author doesn't care because he went back to being a dentist.

>>22651917
He actually isn't a Dentist. This was confirmed by a pretty reliable source who has enough connections to get a birthday picture from Takaya himself.

Not that it matters much. He still hasn't done anything in 8 years. Even the "new" Artbook from last year never had even a single new piece.

>>22652361
It actually rewrites the early manga, fixing some early amateur writing when he thought he wasn't going to continue the manga.

>>22654118
That has been solved. All of the manga that has been released in Japan is now translated and up for free. Quit your whining about it.
>>
>>22661898

No, if you read past that, you will see that it was allowing the Guyvers to go on the offensive.

I will admit, that the Exceed was a bit much, but there is nothing wrong with the Gigantic itself. It just put them on a more level playing field with the bosses.

NOTHING like DBZ.

I'm a huge Guyver nut (just waiting on the super expensive 1/6th figure to ship), but after 8 years of hiatus... And the fact it is STILL listed on Shonen ACE's website as an "Active" series...?

I dunno. I'd love to see it finish... Hell I'd take jotted down timeline notes just to see how he would end it... But judging by how he writes and draws... We probably have at least about another 5-10 volumes... And that is if the fights don't drag on like they did earlier.

He really needs to hand it off to someone who could finish it... because unlike Muira who had assistants and friends to carry on Berserk... It doesn't seem like he has that kind of back up.

Enzyme took his arm off before killing him, and Sho's arm regrew into a new body alongside the control medal regrowing him as well. So Sho has a crisis of identity wondering if he is the real him back from the dead, or just a clone who thinks he is.

the 04 version has problems but one thing i really like about the ending / destruction of chronos Japan is that they basically definitively say that there is an answer, and it's that the original sho fukamachi died on the mountain. any sho that exists after that is a clone made from the metal's backup data. its grim in a way that traditional toku doesnt like to be and i find that fascinating.
>>
>>22671828
Yeah that's the kind of thing you don't want to think about
>>
>>22671810
No idea where the fuck the author was going with this story.
Is Alkanphel going to actually launch a war against the Advents? How the fuck would he even find them or get to them? Wouldn't they be millions of years ahead of him in tech by then anyway? Or just plain extinct?
And if he does, then the bad guys are basically just fucking off from Earth because there's no chance for them to get back anyway, so that kind of resolves the whole story.

I guess you could have a final showdown with Sho and Agito if he wants to take over the world for himself?

What the fuck is Murakami doing in this Apollyon getup?
>>
>>22671828
If that's the case then we're on like the third or fourth Sho clone by now, because he died again when his brain was destroyed by Enzyme 2, and then again at Relic's Point

It was getting pretty clear with the last volume or two... Apollyon went after Guyot looking for something that Guyot had... Which was likely the unit remover... And Archanphels last known orders to Imakarum were for him to obtain a Unit-G. (Apollyon is Imakarum) Don't know exactly what he is doing with the Zoacrystals though.

Plus with the death of most of the Zoalords, the Guyvers were running low on Enemies... But then they bring in another Guyver and an old enemy who is CLEARLY the most evil character in the story in Guyot... Who no doubt still wants to become a Guyver Zoalord... But might have to go for his last choice and take Female Guyver 2's unit.

There is no way Takaya would have teased a Guyver Zoalord, and have a character work towards it, only to return after a suspected death and be even more devious.

People who think the Creators/Advents/Uranus are involved at all haven't been paying attention, and only have one reference of Apollyon looking up to the rainy sky saying something along the lines of "the time is fast approaching", which likely means Archanphel's death.

As for Guyver 3, he was already humbled by Guyver 1 and has returned to being a good guy.
>>
>>22675382

They have. For about 4 months now the last 3 chapters were released.

Everything that has been printed is now up.
>>
>>22675382
I'm thinking since Guyot turned traitor, Alkanfel can no longer trust any of the zoalords except Imakarum and is going to have him collect their crystals and return them to him to restore his full power or something.
>>
>>22671670
>>22671727
Considering that, Al's shirt is not a coincidence either
>>
>>22675447

There is no evidence, but I believe he's using the crystals to try and extend his life until he can get a Unit-G.

And it wasn't just Guyot either, but the other 3 rogue Zoalords as well. He's had 1/3rd of his "loyal" lords betray him. It's fair to say, that yeah, he has only one he can really rely on, which is Imakarum, who was processed specially.
>>
>>22677089
I want to know where the Apollon armor came from if it's made of control medal metal

Chronos has been trying to recreate a Unit-G and said they had no access to that specific material, but Alkanfel, who wants a Unit-G the most, had 500lbs of the stuff sitting around to hand to Imakarum to cosplay in?
>>
It's a real shame Takaya dropped off the face of the earth
>>
>>22675382
Makishima is still an Anti-Hero with leanings toward villainy still.

Though he might have gone after the Rogue Zoalords now to get a Zoacrystal for Shizu.

>>22675447
Possible, but I still think Shin and Barcas are loyal. Although, I've been thinking the Tetsuro and Mizuki might've been brought to Silha for more than just hostage purposes.
>>
>>22677092
Might've been a type of armor he found the doesn't function the same way that a Guyver does.

Plus, it is only a hope that a Unit would cure his increasing lethargy. The only guarantees are a massive power increase and mental protection from the Creators.

Guyver is a series that I don't think should have some dark tragic end
>>
>>22677185

No... He isn't. He was willing to die to let Sho continue to protect the world in his own way... And Sho spared him and even shared the exceed data. It's clear that Takaya has changed Agito back to the side of good now. Sho is basically in command now. Agito is just doing what they decided to be the best, since they both agreed to a truce with what is left of Cronos... But they need to eliminate the threats that exist... And unfortunately Cronos doesn't have the main power to take on the 2 Zoalords.

>>22677092

It's very likely Archanphel did not know about the Unit experiment, and Barcas does not know that Archanphel wants a Unit-G for himself. He was away during the whole Guyver 2 incident, and only showed up to deal with Guyot. Archanphel lets Barcas do a lot of things on his own, and didn't likely concern himself with most of his projects.
>>
>>22677194

I think it is very much like what happened with Archanphel and the Creators. they realized that they could not properly control even him, so they decided to ditch and destroy everything. Archanphel doesn't know who he can trust, except Imakarum, because of their special bond. Barcas might be his first Zoalord... But he is still is own man... And Shin is trusted by Barcas... but Archanphel does not have the same close relationship.

>>22677200

As far as we know, it is just ceremonial armor, like how all the Zoalord wear. It is VERY unlikely that there is any bonding going on, or boosting of powers from it... Or Archanphel would have wore it himself. It is just made of the same alien metal.

>>22679675

Agreed. I don't see the story ending without Sho and Mizuki living happily ever after as humans (Sho having his armor removed at the end). Agito I see dying, especially since Shizu doesn't have long to live anyway...

I can see Agito's Ambition costing him his life, but I hope Shizu turns out ok. Hopefully, she gets Luggnagg's Zoacrystal.

Anyone read this yet? Curious about what it says about the production of the movies and whatever plans they had for follow ups to Dark Hero. I ended up buying the Blu for the first movie with the soundtrack so I missed my chance to get it atm

That the one difference between these two originally was a tiny little asymmetrical smudge on the mouth cover. The character design came a long way by replacing it with a much more visible position on the suit's big sensors.

Surprised, but super happy that they are actually making it in scale with the new Figma. The old BFC Max wasn't in scale with the figure released in the line... But was in scale with the original Figma #231.

Why the hell aren't they making Oswald Lisker Guyver II?! He's the only one missing from the main cast!
>>
>>22693107

I figure it is because he hasn't technically been a part of the cast for a LONG time. He died in chapter 2 of the bloody manga... And even if they used the revised timeline from the 2005 TV series, he was barely in a third of it?

I agree he totally needs to be done, as he still has meaning in the overall plot... But I think they think we might've forgotten about him. But they would be wrong.

The foundation of Guyver is good. The whole "super sayan" ending was fucking retarded just like all Japanese escalations. It should just stuck to the aliens vs humans vs zoanoids. Literally, awakening a god alien would have been a better outcome than, "Look, I'm gold now. That's still original, right gais?"

Go watch the sequel movie Guyver 2: Dark Hero starting David Hayter(yes, THE Solid Snake) then I would suggest the '89-'90 12-part OVA. After that check out the '05 Anime for a more manga accurate story.
>>
>>22718178
Which is your favorite?
>>
>>22708060
Huh? I thought I was up to date with the manga, but that isn't what I remember it leaving off with.
>>
>>22718185
Practically all of it. My least favorites are the first live-action movie, and I think '86 anime movie Guyver: Out of Control.

Dark Hero is a superior sequel that had the Director Steve Wang unhindered by the studio producers.

The OVA has great music and proper violence

And the 2005 anime is the best way to experience the manga story without having to learn Japanese. Although, it sucks they toned down the violence for some reason and they never made a second season.

They are bitching/over exaggerating about the end of the 2005 TV series where the Guyver Gigantic first appears.

I will admit, even as a die hard fan, I think the Exceed form of the Gigantic was a bit too much... But the normal Gigantic armor was FAR from the concept of DBZ and the "Super Saiyan" forms.
>>
>>22718315

And the translations are pretty bad for a lot of it too. Their editor was terrible at trying to write English.
>>
>>22718937
I personally don't mind the Exceed.

And it you want full on Dragonball-style power-ups, check out the Warrior Guyver fan fiction.

Yeah, I don't mind the exceed overall, but it was a bit much, and I can see why people legitimately don't like it... Even if it was teased back in volume 10 just after the first appearance of the Gigantic.

As for the other comment... I am the main artist and side writer for the Warrior Guyver Fanfiction... I resemble that remark... As much as we tried to fight it... We do have a couple character that are a bit too much like DBZ...

residuals, I also guess that the whole dentist story is conflicted with him maybe owning some dentists offices(either the practice or the buildings themselves), or possibly his family being in dentistry and he has investments in that too. But that's just pure specualtion

It's a shame that Japanese designers can get a one or two day license from Kadokawa to sell their custom designs... But the only way to get them is to be there in person... Or pay much more at Japanese auction sites.

And they don't put their stuff online because it might piss of Kadokawa and they never get the chance for a limited license in the future.

My favorite aesthetic choice that the new Guyver stuff is moving away from is how the helmet has the disks and balls located in such a way that they look like eyes so the head has the eye catching appearance of an insect without that Kamen Rider look.

Because he exists to make Sho look stronger, that is the point of jobbing in wrestling. Damaged control metal is effectively an excuse.
>>
>>22727712
To me a jobber is more like Worf from Star Trek. At full power, he's constantly defeated by more powerful aliens. Lisker's brief arc seemed more intended to convey to the audience (in 'show, don't tell' kind of way) some aspects of what the Guyver unit is and how it functions. However, he separately was an interesting character and probably deserved more screen time and development.
>>
>>22727378
Sort of. It was Sojitz, who would later go on to by ADV.

He didn't make Sho look stronger, in fact his entire purpose was demonstrating how weak and clueless Sho was even with an alien super weapon. Lisker wasn't defeated by Sho, he was defeated by his own suit and Sho got to live another day because of it.

I would agree that Lisker deserved a longer arc, but then it would mess with the plot of Archenfel trying to get his own unit. Once he learns of Lisker he could just order it taken from him, and then Lisker would have to turn traitor to survive, sticking him in Agito / Guyot's role. I don't see a good place in the story for Lisker if he survived, not without cutting Guyot at least. I think Valcuria currently has the same problem and don't see anything interesting happening with her besides just having a female guyver for the novelty.

I do want to say that G-2 has my favorite sword shape

Invest into ADV, I mean.

It was Sojitz who helped fund 2005 which is why ADV got it, and why later Funimation, after Sojitz and ADV had their breakup.

Sojitz was a huge ass shitshow.

I think Valkyria is totally protagonist material - in her own manga. Great look, great backstory, great conflict and handicap where she seeks to defeat an opponent who is way, way out of her league at the moment.

However, Sho is the protagonist of this story. And I don't think narratively it has room for the kind of arc Takaya may have been setting up for her.

random thing I realized during my recent reading through of the manga, for whatever reason Chronos never seems to process into a Zoaform anyone who's a woman, only time we see a woman who's undergone the process is Griselda, hard to say if there's supposed to be anything intentional about this or just sheer coincidence since it never gets brought up

Nope that bit of artwork is originally from 1989.

Though, Max Watanabe, head of Max Factory (Where the company gets its name from) has been a long time friend of Takaya. He is the reason we ever get any Guyver figures at all.
