Venus Versus Virus follows regular schoolgirl Sumire who's had the ability to see ghosts since a young age. She tells friends and family about this fact and they just dismiss it, thinking she's a liar. A chance encounter with a broach flying out of nowhere, a monster and gothloli clad monster killer named Lucia leaves her with a life changing decision to use her ability and fight against these "viruses" feeding upon the human race.

Important Notice: For all of you yuri fans that picked this up because it had the tag YURI on it might as well drop it because there is basically no yuri.

Story: The story starts with a scene of both girls fighting, then it goes backwards. VVV is basically about two friends that ended up in a wrong way... simply put. The series consists of several flashbacks, then the last episode picks up from the first scene in ep 1.
To tell you the truth, I expected a lot more from the ending.. the ending was quite disappointing. The story builds up to the final read more

Venus Versus Virus is sadly a failed creation. It's quite interesting and has a lot of potential in being a good action-fantasy anime, but it just wasn't made well. It's like a potentially great cake that was burnt in the oven. Pick this up only if you have an intention of remaking it. This is definitely a NOT WATCH for normal viewers. Everyone will just be completely disappointed in the end.

The story is pretty good. It's just not presented well in this show. It's about two girls, Lucia and Sumire, who work in a group called Venus Vanguard that exterminates evil spirits called "viruses". Viruses read more

Personally, I think it is actually quite good. Though the ending isn't as good as it could have been. I don't have much of an issue with the ending because it's point was to leave it open to the viewer. It is much like the big mystery at the end of Code Geass. For those of you who have seen that, you will know what I am talking about. All 'round, it was a good series and it may have the tag Yuri, but there is absolutely no Yuri in there, like at all, so sorry to disappoint all those Yuri fans

The anime had two major issues. One, it was overdramatic. Towards the beginning and end in particular there were a lot of cheesy and overdone scenes. While I felt the middle was at least decent, I can't deny some pretty big trouble with the way it started and ended.

More than that, though, was the simple fact that it started in the middle. If we had started this anime by following the girl into the world of monsters, and learning about it as she did, it might have proved a rather enjoyable tail. Instead, we are shown a scene from the ENDING, and then thrust into read more
