3 January 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

With "Guyver: The Bio-boosted Armor," the Japanese alien superhero is back and better than ever. As a fan of Yoshiki Takaya's Anime' and Manga series, I feel that this latest update of his comic book creation is right where it's supposed to be: Excellence!

Right from the opening credits, "Guyver" hooks you and then pulls you in for some adrenalin-fueled ultra-violence as the eponymous alien armor bonds with high school student Sho, thus transforming him into the first Guyver, an armored being whose natural abilities have been enhanced to superhuman levels. Together with friend Tetsuro and Tetsuro's cute and demure sister Mizuki (who is also Sho's would-be love interest), they go about battling the evil Chronos Corporation, whose army of disposable shape-shifting mutants, called Zoanoids, become the series cannon fodder.

Anime' fans have a reason to rejoice with this seriously revamped and pumped-up series. I just purchased volume two today and I wasn't disappointed; it was even better than the first set! Although I am getting ticked off with the whole "four-episodes-a-disc" gimmick, perhaps it's only to get you amped for the next set. A lot of Anime' tends to do that.

10/10
