Most people probably know of Yasuhiko Yoshikazu due to his involvement with the Gundam franchise but his non-Gundam works definitely deserves attention too. I've always liked the way he created a sense of dynamism in the characters' movement, the expressiveness of the characters, as well as the water-colour styled shading. Indeed, his works are always great to look at and serves to drastically amplify the story he's telling. Most importantly, I absolutely love the hell out of his character designs.
All these are evident in Venus Wars as well, where his art plays a crucial part in enhancing an otherwise simplistic war drama. The scenes with
the soldiers having to take down enemy tanks with what are essentially armoured dirt bikes were pretty damn cool too. Lastly, I'd also recommend checking out the anime as the plot progress is somewhat different and thus offers a different level of experience.
