Trying to identify a movie....

Years ago i saw a (i think Manga) release of an anime. Heres what i remember:

- There were two episodes on the DVD/VHS.
- A guy and a girl team fight evil. The guy can turn into a Guyver type creature.
- First episode is set in a space prison or maybe an asteroid mine
- Second episode is about a religious cult that has a temple on a flying island. They are trying to bring back a god they worship into a giant statue thats in their temple.

Thats all i remember. Been trying to find the name of this for a long time with no luck.

Any help?

Were the two episodes related? Were the protagonists from the first one also in the second? That might help jog my memory. It sounds like something I should know.

It's funny, because you used the word "guy" in your description, I immediately thought of it:

Guy, Double Target, an early AIC title that was released in two versions, one "uncensored" because of the gratuitous scenes in it.

Thats the one. You got it. Thanks. Been trying to remember what this was for years. Will now pick it up and realize it was better in my memory than in actuality. LOL
