Trapped in a dark abyss, the once-beautiful Venus is rotting in her own despair. Unhappy with her fate, she calls on her twin brother Deimos to find her a new body.

Meanwhile, Minako Ifu is in a predicament, as her friend Hisamatsu has gone missing while searching for a master orchid grower. On her way to locate him, she encounters Deimos—who declares that she will become his bride and return to the underworld with him. Fleeing in disgust, Minako discovers the house her friend was pursuing and meets the endearing siblings Touko and Kaname Ooba.

However, the situation is not as it seems, and Minako quickly becomes entangled in a nefarious affair—all while being followed by the charming Deimos.

In all my life, I've never witnessed this degree of animation overkill. Studio Madhouse had the opportunity to produce an OVA adapting a shoujo manga where a cursed man pursues a beautiful teen so that her body can be used as the vessel for his wife, whose flesh is rotting away.

I don't blame Madhouse for not producing a complete adaptation because, for 1, they were likely commissioned for just 1 episode, and two, I don't think the manga was ever completed either.

I consider Bride of Deimos to be an artistic ...

The OVA Deimos no Hanayome is, in one short sentence, a glorified demonstration of the manga. Does it make it bad? Not quite, but it definitely represents wasted potential.

First of all, do you see that pretty interesting premise for the plot in the synopsis? Yeah, forget about it. The main plot is told in the first few minutes and the rest of the OVA dedicates itself to a side story which is pretty much filler, so no revengeful gods, unconventional love or something like that. This is by far one of the greatest flaws here: you've got yourself some good enough source material for an ...

Perhaps it was dumb for me to watch this without the context of the manga, but I'm so used to being able to watch something without reading the manga that this just put me off, to be honest.

It feels like they tried to fit some sort of exposition in at the beginning of the OVA but I found myself quickly lost and bored. Some scenes cut so suddenly and weirdly that I became confused and had no idea what was happening anymore. While the mystery aspect of the plot is nice, there are various things and points I found myself laughing at in how ...
