Shou Fukamachi is just an average high school student,until one afternoon, Sho and his friend Tetsuro stumble upon what looks to be a landmine, which Sho accidentally activates.

Tekkaman Blade

Tekkaman Blade

Earth is under attack from the alien invaders known as the Radam and is quickly losing the battle. With the planet’s finest defense, the space ring, being overrun without much opposition, mankind’s fate seems bleak. One of the few forces left to oppose the Radam are the Space Knights; but they are anything but successful. That is, until a mysterious man named Blade falls from the sky. Blade has the power to transform into a Tekkaman, one of the deadliest fighting forces in the universe – the very force that is leading the Radam onward! But unlike the other Tekkamen, Blade is obsessed with just one goal: defeating the Radam. Having lost his memory, he doesn't know why, but he knows he must stop them. With the help of the Space Knights he can begin uncovering his past, discovering who the Radam and the Tekkamen are, and of course, save Earth in the process!

Both Tekkaman and Guyver deal with people who get their power by transforming into a super strong armored figure. Although that is also where perhaps the comparison ends, the feel of both shows is a bit similar. Though, Guyver is aimed at a slightly older audience then Tekkaman Blade.

Both shows also feature a lot of action and violence, with the hero continuously needing to fight more and more difficult odds and strong enemies.

Guyver and Tekkaman Blade are both quite old, as you can tell by their animation; however this does not deter from their storylines. Both series are similar in the way that an alien species has somehow created a form of bio-suit that can merge with humans' (possibly other creatures') bodies in order to increase their fighting potential tremendously. If you're interested in plots with creatures out to destroy the world, as well as an engaging back story with emotional aspects to the storyline, then either one of these is for you. Although these series aren't entirely similar in their storylines, they do share certain very similar aspects. It's worth checking them both out as they are valuable assets to anyone's collection.

Ryvius

Ah, the one fight that many mecha fans would like to see - Guyver vs Blade. It would be epic beyond proportion. That said chances are if you enjoy one of these you'll like the other, especially for the over the top action. Both Guyver and Blade are extremely powerful characters that fight to protect the Earth and their friends from various monsters and aliens. Tekkaman Blade does a better job at storytelling and handling emotion, while Guyver has a lot of interesting plot twists and ideals.

Bio Hunter

Bio Hunter
  • OVA (1 ep x 60 min)
  • 1995

Koshigaya and Komada are professors by day, but at night, they are Bio Hunters. Their mission? Hunt down people infected with the ellusive Demon Virus, and destroy it. Things become complicated when the two become entangled with the fate of Sayaka, a woman whose grandfather is a famous psychic. With powerful enemies on their trail, they must find Sayaka's lost relative to hear his prophecy, or die trying!

Maybe it has to do with the fact that the Zoanoids of Guyver remind me of the demons in Bio Hunter, or maybe it is just the darker tone and atmosphere of each series. I just think that if someone enjoyed one, they should take a look at the other for something similar.

GANTZ

GANTZ

Much to the annoyance of Kei, he and his childhood friend Katou have died, having been torn apart by a train. But rather than finding themselves at the gates of heaven, the duo materialize in a room full of strangers and a giant black sphere known as GANTZ. As if dying once wasn’t bad enough, the occupants of the room are then forced to embark on dangerous missions to kill strange aliens; missions that very few return from. Now, Kei, Katou, and a well-endowed friend must fight for their freedom with an arsenal of guns, high powered suits, and a very low chance of survival.

These two are simuliar in the fact that both have to deal with fighting alien/monsters and that the main character along with other characters are unwillingly thrown into the fight but with superior equipment to even the odds. Guyver does the better job of fulfilling the oldschool monster flick, but GANTZ happens to fullfill the more violent dramatic inner taist in watchers.

New Hurricane Polymar

New Hurricane Polymar

The Polymar system, a man-machine weapon, has been given to Takeshi as a birthday gift. Now it is his solemn duty to defeat the followers of Nova with karate kicks and backfists. But the Catsharks won't make it easy. The convergence of comedy, suspense, and ninja action makes Hurricane Polymar an unusual treat.

The Guyver and Hurricane Polymar are both shows about a normal man becoming a super hero with the power of a bio-weapon suit. While I like the Guyver better, Hurricane Polymar delivers the same punch-kick action with it's own flair for the dramatic.

Project ARMS

Project ARMS

Ryo Takatsuki injured his right arm in an accident years ago. The resulting surgery brought about some unexpected, but not entirely unwelcome changes -- enhanced healing along with the presence of a superweapon dubbed "ARMS" in his body. But with all power comes a price, and with newfound allies who share his predicament, he must battle a secret organization trying to control the ARMS while trying to find the truth behind the weapon in his body for himself...

You will notice some distinct similarities between these two series, basically both are bio-armor against the organization that formed them, a scratch group helping each other find there freedom from them and to gain there lives back.
