Synopsis

In the year 2010 AD, Hyper Hurricanes born concurrently all over the world caused severe damage. Five billion people lost their lives, decreasing the world's population to 3 billion. Existing economies and military were wiped out. Countries were frozen under solid ice, plains sank beneath seas, the world was changed dramatically.

Human civilization enters a chaotic era. Poverty flourished outside of these economic zones and slums were widespread. The ruling class called themselves Logos and maintained their position by force of arms. They call the poor Revenus, who are exiled to live outside the special economic areas.

Time has passed since then. Katsuragi Jo and Tsurasawa Jin, escape from Phantom, a force organized to watch Revenus and to suppress renegade elements of the Logos, taking with them a mysterious girl, Nobuto Sana. There are many who are interested in her, all with their own reasons.

Innocent Venus is a very underrated, largely forgotten about series. Such a shame, as it's an exceptionally written, immensely satisfying production.

We're introduced - in the beginning - to a shady duo accompanied by a young girl and a troublesome boy, who are on the run from a roster much larger and much more powerful than themselves. Innocent Venus starts off a little cliche, and occasionally fails to avoid banality, but as the plot progresses it becomes more complex, exciting and unconventional. It presents audiences with gleefully absorbing questions and defining plot twists, with a satisfying climax and ample pace.

Despite fairly commonplace archetypes, the characters breath read more

Innocent venus is in my list of favourite animes forever. I thoroughly enjoyed it, mainly because I was hooked to the storyline right the way through. Full of twists and turns, I liked the way it wasn't exactly "predictable" . The series is short, doesn't drag on, but gives you plenty of time to "care" about the characters.
I watched this series in Japanese, and I thought the voice acting was fairly well done, and graphically it was good, however I felt that the intergration of the computer effects on the mecha used could have been more seamless, because when there was great use of read more

Innocent Venus is a series I heard about a while back and I was pretty excited by the first episode. I was not expecting anything groundbreaking, but I was impressed by the visual panache and overall feel of the show. As it turns out, it is one of those series that starts off strong, and then loses its drive, only to pick it back up again in the final stretch. The problem is, by the time it starts to pick up the broken pieces of itself, it is a little too late to salvage the overall product. As rare as it is for me to read more

Innocent Venus is a hidden gem. It's a real shame how underrated this anime is, because it is actually very well written and executed, and everyone should at least give it a go.

We begin the anime getting introduced to Jin and Jo, a shady duo who is protecting a little girl named Sana. They are on the run from an organization much more powerful then them. It may not be a completely unique story, and there are some cliches, but Innocent Venus manages to stay fresh, constantly putting new questions to your head and presenting you with rather unpredictable plot twists.

Characters are, in my read more
