Editorial Reviews

After a lifetime of seeing ghosts, young Sumire is recruited by powerful Lucia to fight demons! The girls battle darkness as members of the Venus Vanguard, a group dedicated to ridding the world of its greatest threat – Virus. But as they discover why every life is worth saving, they also learn that they carry their own unlocked potential for evil. The Virus rages out of control, but Sumire and Lucia are prepared to give it the beating it truly deserves. Get ready – it’s time for your vaccination.

Customer Reviews

The ending was unfinished and didn't really answer anything.
FredrickDr.ead
The soundtrack, while not very large, is quite good, and thanks to the shortness of the anime, the tracks did not get old.

If this sounds a little strange to you, rest assured, things get even weirder once you're in.

Some anime titles are made up of such a bizarre set of traits that all it takes is a passing glance to recognize that there's no way this could have been created domestically. Venus Versus Virus is exactly one such title. Here we have a gun-shooting demon-buster teenage girl with teal hair and an eye patch charged with saving all of humanity from an evil virus outbreak. If this sounds a little strange to you, rest assured, things get even weirder once you're in. In the mean time, let's check out the specs shall we?

Released across two discs, Venus Versus Virus contains the complete series (12 episodes) and comes packaged in a single regular-sized dvd case. Total runtime comes in at 290 minutes and the show wears an appropriate if not slightly conservative TV 14 rating due presumably to the gun touting and semi violent themes presented. Graphic gore, nudity, and sexual themes are nonexistent here.

Extras come in the form of textless songs and a crop of upcoming Funimation title trailers on the second disc. Language options are typical sub and dub meaning the choice between running the original Japanese dialog or an English dubbed version and the option to show English subtitles over either track.

The story follows the exploits of the Venus Vanguard organization, or more specifically, the eye patch wearing goth-girl Lucia and her teenage recruit Sumire as they bust the bad guys with their pistols. Bad guys in this case refers to possessed critters and people who are basically carriers of an "evil" virus. Sumire, it turns out, has a unique ability in that the bullets our heroines use to kill these viruses have an effect on her as well.

This anime is, to put it simple, a shonen yuri about two female friends with guns who fight zombies while one of them falls for a boy.

What a more descriptive description?

It involves two teenage girls, Sumire and Lucia. Lucia has a "gift", stated loosely, that makes her see "viruses". Said viruses are out to get her. Sumire acquires the ability too, but you won't learn how until the fifth episode or so.
Sumire meets a boy near the beginning of the anime and falls for him.

Enter trials, errors, cuteness, sadness, and action here.

I'm a big fan of the manga however the anime has little to do with it other then the basic plot and characters (even then, their personalities and character developments are different). The two end differently, in popular opposite ways, and they even begin differently. Only a few events are based off manga events.

The ending will leave you short and sad. I recommend this but only if you like the manga, or yuri, a lot. If not, check out the manga.

Perhaps I have poor taste, but I was instantly hooked on this short series. So much so, I actually seeked out the original ADV release, with the three single discs and wonderful artbox (besides Bandai's magnetic artboxes, I think ADV comes in second with the sturdiest and coolest artboxes); instead of the usual black, clear or sometimes white colour case, the older ADV release came in never-before-seen-by-me light blue-like cases, which goes great with the whole dark, gothic look of the packaging; one thing good about boxed sets being released, the original material is cheaper to hunt down in the long run -- however, this double clear case 2-disc holder of this release was a nice change and surprise from the recent slimcase phenomenon that never protects the disc(s).

I also haven't read the manga, so maybe I remain ignorant; but evenso, I tend to enjoy my visual medium different than the written material, it leaves both to be special in their own right. So I could care less if the anime takes liberty on storytelling or changes up the characters. Crucify me. With that being said, even after the first episode, I was attracted to and very much sucked in by the quick character development and the mysteries that shrouded around certain personalities. I mean, come-on... an antique dealer (Lucia, a one woman Venus Vangaurd) storefront owner who takes on clients that see Virus-es (evil spirits - similar to xxxHolic) and runs a backroom where equipment is developed to fight off these corrupt souls?!? Sign me up.

And then the sweet character girl Sumire, who at times needs to turn beserk-er (Claymore anyone?) in order to further battle the attacking Virus?

I enjoyed this Anime collection very much. You can find other reviews that will tell you all you could want to know about the story and content. So in summation it was enjoyable.
This story did not leave this viewer with a sense of ending. There should be a second season to bring the story to a conclusion. Maybe there will be, until then, the ending of this series is only available in the manga books. I have not seen the manga story so I can not be sure it has a conclusive ending.
