In the 21st century, mankind lives on two worlds. Following the collision of an ice asteroid, massive terraforming has made Venus a planet now capable of supporting life. Colonists from Earth tamed the hostile world and have thrived for four generations. But they also brought the darker side of humanity. Venus is about to get hostile again.

Hiro Seno, a hotshot motorcycle jockey, witnesses the first strike against his country Aphrodia, by the rival nation of Ishtar. Huge battletanks and warplanes quickly lay waste to the city. The Aphrodian army is quick to mobilize and retaliate... and despite his opposition to warfare, Hiro finds himself fighting for his life on the front lines.

Venus wars is to me a classic, Its not very very good but I watched it many years ago and by the standart back then it was quite good.
Probably not the best choice for younger fans who cant stomach the outdated animation but it is a fine example of 80's sci fi anime.

Its a decent quick watch, and a peek into the 80's, the golden era of anime, and by this I mean it's better than 90% of modern animes easily...

I don't usually do review but after seeing this movie I had to, because I can't really recommend this to anyone.

Basically the story is very ordinary! I have seen many movies from late 80s that are written in same way and this also borrows many elements. I felt that this movie was re-written less bloody version of Akira. These two movies have many things in common!

And the characters are forgettable. I didn't even remember anyone's names.

Only one thing that is good in this anime is its artwork. I really liked how the tanks and other vehicles were drawn.

Overall an unfinished anime, which read more

If you want a gritty war anime full of tanks, look no further! This sci fi ova embodies the charm of 80s anime; though very flawed, the aesthetics and love put into its making is enough for an enjoyable watch.

The premise is sound if not a bit basic. Humans have colonised Venus (out of all the planets in Sol) but thanks to ecological disasters, it is a backwater hellhole far from the supposed utopia of this world's Earth. Its people have a reckless, fatalistic and at times apathetic view towards life and peace (the ridiculously deadly bike racing games they have!). The nation Ishtar launches read more

Original Tape version 9, Remastered 16:9 widescreen edition dvd, 5,5 at best because it rapes the texture and recording of its time, while it shows too much at the colors and stuff. Original i like it best because i saw it the 1st time on t.v back in 1994,95, and its just sooo enjoyable that way, the music tracks, the grainy resolution, sigaretburns inscreen and the shady yet movable animation thats NOT like static body movement on the remaster! A good movie in the HEYDAYS of sci-fi and cyberpunk anime that had an nice storyline to it and good fitting chara. that are involved the read more
