chii’s Anime Snack of the Week: Secret Santa! Guyver: Out of Control

For my Anime-Planet Secret Santa I was given Guyver. Being the way I am I wanted to watch it all. So that includes this glorious OVA from the 80's. This is one of the "best" cult anime classics I've ever seen! (haha no not really)

Ohhh what's that?

Umm yeah what did happen to you...









Positive Points

  • 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 to see if you want to get into Guyver further


Negative Points

  • 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

Ladies gotta watch out for those tentacles!

Guyver FIGHT!









Why chii thinks you should watch it

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 as well. 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. 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...

How every 80's ova with monsters ends.
