Is Guyver /m/? Is it worth getting into? Where do you start? Should every show have nipple lasers?

First it goes like your standard tokusatsu hero. Transformation and so on. But when Gigantic gets into play, it turns quite /m/.

Possibly the only anime/manga where the definitive version is in fact a western live action adaptation.

Well, maybe not. Guyer Dark Hero is surely the greatest film of all fucking time but the first 6 episodes of the OVA series are a masterpiece to rival it.

So Guyver -> Guyver Dark Hero > Guyver OVAs?

The Guyver films are...
The Guyver films are standalone so you can watch them before the anime or mango, skip the first one because it's shit and Dark Hero distances itself anyway. You might want to leave them until you're more familiar with Guyver but it's up to you.

The original OVA can be watched separate as well though I feel it's one of the weaker entries aside from the female Guyver.

The OVA series is wonderful but descends into nobudget after episode 6. You might enjoy it so much that's not a problem when you get there but I need to mention it.

The TV anime isn't as good as the OVA series and covers the same material for a while but it's worth watching since it adapts right up to Gigantic.

first Guyver (the one with Mark Hamill not as the Guyver) is okay, better if you can enjoy JJ from Good Times as a monster
Guyver Dark Hero (with David Hayter as the Guyver) is really good.

Any Kamen Rider manga by Shotaro Ishinomori is better and way shorter. Specially Kamen Rider Black.

The first 6 episodes of the Guyver OVA's are what made it popular, despite even the source material not being nearly as bloody. It's why old anime fans still remember the Guyver.

It's a shame, but also good simply because barely anybody would remember the Guyver it if was not for the original first 6 episode OAV ( the second half takes a large quality cut. So bad, that it was like different animation studios were practicing new art styles with them)

The first live action movie is garbage, and should be destroyed with DY-NO-MITE

The second movie is of course Dark Hero, and is bloody english toku with David "Solid Snake/Bernie Wiseman" Hayter as the lead character.

The 2005 TV series is good, but a lot less violent than the OAV. Rewrites some stuff from the manga, but follows the general plotline.

The manga is still going, ever so slowly. It's a monthly series in which sometimes we only get 10 - 16 pages at best. Plot barely moves at this pace.

Scanlations are a joke. Manga fox has a good lot of what was scanlated, but the group doing it has poor english skills and the grammar is pretty bad. As well, they are now using a "Subscription" system for their scanlations. You need to prove, or buy through them the actual manga volumes in order to get the translated chapters.

It seems that some places do not have the first 7 volumes of the manga, as Viz did license them. My recommendation is to watch the 2005 TV series. You probably then can start reading the series from volume 10, which is the first appearance of the Guyver Gigantic.

Definitely. It took inspiration from Kamen Rider but took it to a more logical gory extreme.

The bad guys don't pull their punches in this one.

Guyver is your poor-man's Kamen Rider, honestly. It's pretty mediocre in all its incarnations.
