This series was actually based upon the first five volumes of the Guyver Manga. Many of the events of the manga appear to have been moved around or new plot points created due to the limited run of the series. For example, due to not featuring a portion about the Mount Minakami and the Relic ship the Hyper Zoanoid Team 5 actually first attacks Sho's school. Also the whole battle inside Chronos Japan where the rest of the Team 5 members are killed by Sho and Agito was added to the series.

The Series is unofficially divided into two sections, the first six episodes seem to focus on Sho acquiring the armor and battling Chronos Japan and Guyot. The second half focuses on Barcus's attempts to kill Sho and Aptom's revenge against Sho for killing Dyme and Somlum.

Towards the end of the last episode where Aptom, Type Two has kidnapped Mizuki there are two versions of the famous "shirt ripping" scene. One that includes Mizuki's bare chest and one where the several second scene is cut out. In the edited version only the shots of her back and then while holding Sho's shirt over herself are shown.
