It was a pleasant surprise to stumble across this manga, and I recommend it to anyone in search of action, a cute dark story and beautiful garnments!
I first saw the anime 2 years ago and was really disappointed by its sudden and rough conclusion. Be sure that the manga is far more detailed and its story is much more developed.
The story is well-developped, if a little clichéd. It won't blow your mind, but it is filled with little moments of sincerity, where you can't help but feel for the characters.
The art is truly beautiful. A special attention is given to the costumes, which are loosely inspired by the Gothic Lolita fashion. The characters' expression are always precise, and the surrenderings are beautifully drawn.
The characters themselves are really stereotyped, but they play their parts so well you can't really complain.
One part shojo and two parts action, this manga is full of combats. The pace is really quick (given the 8 volumes) but there's nothing in there that doesn't help tell the story. The manga itself is well-structured, so the story really flow.
Venus Versus Virus is a very enjoyable, so don't hesitate to read it if you have the chance! read more
