In the show the people turned into some kind of monster, like robots. It was from the 90's and most of the show was in a forest. I watched it once and don't remember the name of it.

The big problem is that I don't recall if it was a TV show or a movie, and I have being looking for it for 5 to 7 years. I have been unable to find it at any store or online. Has anyone heard of it?

    Some punctuation wouldn't go amiss either :) – System Down Mar 22 '13 at 19:51

    Anime where people transform in a forest… That's really not enough information. What else do you remember? Did they all transform into the same monster? Did everybody transform or just a few? Was the transformation voluntary or not? Did they transform back? – user56 Mar 22 '13 at 21:06
  • Very vague. What is 'like robots'? When did you see it and where? Online? Cable TV? – Solemnity Mar 23 '13 at 2:11

I think this could possibly be The Guyver, which had a number of incarnations:

as well as a handful of other tie-ins and off shoots.

Many of the sequences, particularily in the original OVA featured a large amount of forest based battles.

Infact, when Shō Fukamachi first stumbles accross the Bio-boosted armour he is in a forest, and is immediately attacked by other Zoanoids in a prolonged sequence (that bridges 2 episodes in the re-imagined version).


Based off of this... try Light Years. I don't know how old it really is. But people were captured and sent into a protal and came back robotic warriors, which the portal really was a gate to the future.

That's the best I got off of this.


You might be referring to Animorphs book series which was also a TV series and also became a Transformer like toy line.

Does this video of the first episode look familiar? Or this character list?

This is a cover from the book series contains a similar font / logo to the TV series (credit Wikipedia):

  • I don't think the TV show had any robots in it (I don't think it lasted long enough to introduce the Chee) – Izkata Aug 20 '13 at 22:51

perhaps Princess Mononoke? It was a Ghibli film, came out in '97, alot of it set in a forest and stuff...

    There was nothing in Princess Mononoke that could even possibly pass as "like robots". – phantom42 May 22 '13 at 17:23
  • Yeah, that's what I was afraid of. – acolyte May 22 '13 at 17:25
