The animated brainchild of comic artist Yoshiki Takaya! Encouraged by his editor to make his initial combat-suit design more grotesque, Takaya struck upon the idea of an alien, biological device, a living armor that bonded itself organically to its host. The animated version of The Guyver was released as two separate series' of OVAs in Japan, and Takaya was involved with both. Not only has The Guyver made the jump from manga to OVA, but two live-action films have featured the bio-booster as well.
The Guyver is the ultimate weapon - a mysterious mecha of alien design, which when activated, interfaces with human subjects and transforms them into powerful combatants. This weapon is accidentally discovered by a young student, Sho Fukamachi, who triggers the unit's control mechanism. Transformed into the Guyver he battles against the bio-morphic Zoanoids controlled by the evil Chronos organization.
