The Venus Wars (ヴイナス戦記, Vinasu Senki?) is a Japanese manga series written and illustrated by Yoshikazu Yasuhiko. It was serialized in the Gakken magazine Nora Comics from 1987 to 1990. In 1989, The Venus Wars was adapted into an anime film directed by Yasuhiko, and co-written by Yuichi Sasamoto and Yasuhiko, and produced by Bandai Visual, Gakken, and Shochiku.
The manga was translated into English by Dark Horse Comics in the early 1990s. The Venus Wars film was localized in the United Kingdom and the United States by the Central Park Media subsidiary Manga Entertainment, gaining recognition when it aired in heavy rotation on the Sci-Fi Channel "Saturday Anime" movie block in the late 1990s.
Discotek relicensed Venus Wars in 2012 and releasing a well deserved, shiny new remastered DVD release from a new telecline print which is anamorphic widescreen and a significant upgrade over the old Central Park Media release, which was letterboxed and from a grainy, stretched source.

The fancy outwork nature.”
