Guyver: The Bioboosted Armor, The Complete Series

 (TV) (2005-2006)

Guyver: The Bioboosted Armor, The Complete Series Blu-ray delivers great video and audio in this overall recommended Blu-ray release

While investigating a mysterious explosion near his school, Sho Fukamachi happens upon the Chronos Corporation's greatest weapon: a techno organic suit of bio armor known as "the Guyver". But Chronos is determined to conceal its secrets at any cost. Sho soon finds himself relentlessly pursued by its army of horrific bio-monsters. With nowhere to run, Sho is forced to call upon the fearsome power of the Guyver and rip his opponents limb from limb in a desperate struggle for survival.

Guyver: The Bioboosted Armor, The Complete Series Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

Presented in 1080p utilizing the AVC codec (at an average bitrate of 15Mbps), Guyver contains a surprisingly strong visual presentation for an upconverted transfer. Those who've grown accustomed to the non-HD sourced material courtesy of FUNimation will know what I'm referring to when I mention the hit or miss nature of these television offerings. In many cases the image offers greater consistency and less compression-related tampering, but provides only a marginal increase in detail with the move to a higher resolution. In the case of Guyver, the source elements are in rock-solid shape, without a hint of haze or blurring. There are still instances of stair-stepping diagonal lines to be found (especially when watching the series on a 100 inch screen), but it's difficult to complain about trivial nuances that can't be helped when we're given such a clean image. Adding to the proficiency of the visual presentation, black levels descend into inky hues when needed, affording contrast a wide spectrum of differentiation even in the darkest of scenes. Oftentimes, the setting of the series lends a cold, metallic nature that paints certain scenes in a series of monochromatic hues that run the risk of melding together. Even when faced with such difficult material the transfer rarely skips a beat, reproducing the subtle tonal shifts with care. This heightened accuracy in color stability and contrast depth should offer fans adequate reason to upgrade from their prior DVD copies, especially when you account for the disappearance of nearly all compression artifacts, banding, or macroblocking within the image.


Guyver: The Bioboosted Armor, The Complete Series Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

As promised, FUNimation continues their dedication to offering a lossless audio presentation on both the English and the native Japanese track. Those of you who gravitate toward the English dub receive the red carpet treatment in the form of a 5.1 surround option, while those of us who prefer the native language on anime endeavors are provided a less robust 2.0 option. This practice has become the norm for most anime series that find their way onto western shores, since the typical Japanese television release often incorporated a 2.0 mix rather than the immersive experience most home theater enthusiasts have come to expect (though there's been a shift in recent years). All things considered, I was quite pleased with the clarity and robust design of the Japanese mix, which never rose to the heights of the English offering, yet still managed to incorporate some excellent sonic effects within the limited spatial separation. In the case of most prior FUNimation boxed sets I'd turn my attention to a full endorsement of the English dub over the Japanese technical presentation, but it this case we have the introduction of some perplexing balance issues that crop up from time to time. In essence, the dub felt a little weak by my estimation, and demonstrated an odd tendency for the center channel to drop off substantially. In several scenes, I found myself straining to make out what should be primary dialog between characters, often leading to manual volume adjustments on the fly. When the track is at its best, everything aligns to make for a fantastic action-packed production, but those interested solely in the dubbed offering should temper their expectations accordingly.
