Guyver: Out of Control

Dec 30, 2012

For my Anime-Planet Secret Santa

This is one of the "best" cult anime classics I've ever seen! (haha no not really)

One day a boy, Sho, finds a device and accidently activates it! Turning him into a GUYVER!! Now he must face off against similar "creatures" known as Zoanoids! An evil company called Chronos is pulling the strings! Can Sho survive this nightmare??

That's really all this short ova is about! I find it funny that this series has been remade 3 times to tell the same story. Each time it is remade it does get "better and better". More story is told by the time the 2005 version comes out so I'd really recommend watching that one instead of this 1986 version or the 1989-1992 versions if you want the whole Guyver story. If you want a silly Guyver experience this version is the one to pick.

Positive:

  • Typical 80's ova
  • Dubbed
  • Blood, guts, extreme violence, and gore
  • Tentacle action
  • Interesting concept
  • Evil corporation
  • Great for fans of the manga
  • Great taste tester to see if you want to get into Guyver further

Negative:

  • Felt rushed
  • Old
  • Stuff just happens with little explanation
  • Blood, guts, extreme violence, and gore
  • Tentacle action
  • If you aren't into typical 80's ova's stay away
  • Fans of the manga might be weirded out to see a chick Guyver
  • Fans of the manga might be disappointed because of an incomplete story

If you are a fan of terrible anime that is so bad it's good this ova is for you. Must be a fan of EXTREME violence, blood, guts, and gore! Loving cheesy as hell sci-fi is a must too. I mean a human turns into this biogenetic alien of sorts and kicks other biogenetic aliens asses! And on top of that an evil corporation called Chronos is behind it ALL! Chronos is the most badass name for an evil company by the way. I Love that! I wasn't lying when I said that this is clearly a cult classic. I know plenty of people that look back at this ova and still think it is the best thing ever... Wish I had some of what they're smoking...
