One night while running to her dorm building to make curfew, a broach flies out of no where and she pricks her finger on it and sees a demon. Suddenly, another girl clad in gothic lolita clothing arrives bearing a huge gun and kills the demon.

Once the ordeal is over with, the girl gives Sumire a flier for a local clothing store, Venus Vanguard.

When Sumire visits the store, the girl, whose name is Lucia Nabashi, explains to her that because she pricked her finger on the broach, Sumire now has the power to see demons as well as ghosts.

Additionally, Lucia now wants Sumire to help her rid the world of these demons called Virus that threaten to consume all of humanity.

With this strange ability, she becomes stronger and violent, and is capable of defeating Viruses with her bare hands, though when under the influence of this power, she cannot disce.

Lucia Nahashi is a strong, young girl who lead the fights against Viruses alongside the other members of the Venus Vanguard, sworn to fight and kill all Viruses. Her left eye holds a mysterious powers, though is almost always covered with an eye patch. Use of her powers is taxing and wears her out, but can often be disastrous to her enemy in many ways.

    After watching the first episode, it seems to be an all girl action anime. This anime also has hints of shoujo-ai as there are severe shortage of XY-chromosomes in this series.

    After watching the second episode, this is definately a shoujo-ai. The art style, the cut scenes, the character enteraction, and the self reflection and doubt… not the mention a love triangle between two girls and a guy.

    *sigh* So much anime to watch and so little time.

    The fighting scenes are a not really extravagant, compared to shonen (boy’s) animes with orchestra music on the backgroup and flashing graphics as a hero slices through enemies.

    The focus of the series so far is on the human and emotional aspect of the lead character as she slowly explains the world she is living in, and her desires not to fight demons, while she knows that she has to do it.

    Anyway… I patiently waiting for the 3rd episode.

    Don’t trust shady websites that offer anime for download… Especially, if they want you to join. More especially, if the anime they offer for download is US-license-free, not theirs, and not licensed to them. :nod:
