This was the first anime that I watched and I knew it was Japanese Animation, I was watching it subbed since back then they didn’t have dubbed anime and I loved it very much. I enjoy the music of the anime would get my blood pumping but I was so sad for it to end at only 12 episodes, and so more then a decade later they decided to make the TV anime of the old series, I was extact and extremely looking forward to it. I was curious as to how they were going to change the story or what they were going to follow. Sho starts off in the same enviroment next to Mount Minakami, and with Tetsuro they discover the G-Unit. Things follow along in the beginning with about the same pace but things pick up quickly, the whole thing gets your blood pumping and you can tell your getting a larger chunk of the story at this point which get me more intrigued. The music for the anime is great, and the animation itself is very well done with a mix of new and keeping with the old style, I really liked it. The story was puling me in deeper and deeper since this time they are providing you with more and more information. I really enjoyed that. The ending of this anime was just as good as the original leaving you wanting more.

  1. Actually I don’t like open endings but I’ve read that even the written story (comic) hasn’t finished yet so hopefully we’ll be getting more of it soon.

  2. Guyver sure bring back memories…it was one my firsts too. My father absolutely loved the Guyver movie…along with Fist of the North Star and Ninja Scroll. He has a “bloody taste” when it comes to anime and my mom was like “eww, he just ripped that man’s arms off” —>referring to Ninja Scroll.

    It seems this one is new TV series…I might check it out.
