Okubyo na Venus OVA


Only a quick post about a nice OVA from the 80’s I stumbled across, namely “Okubyo na Venus” by Hiroyuki Kakudou (Digimon, Yu-Gi-Oh!, etc.) and Toei Animation. What it makes somewhat interesting is that the “plot” is solely communicated through the visuals, meaning that there’s absolutely no dialogue. It’s just images and music, so something like a few music videos joined together. And it works – particularly due to the good animation. Main Animator was Michi Himeno who is especially known for his work on Saint Seiya (character design). The other Saint Seiya character designer – Shingo Araki – worked also on it (as key animator), as did the talented Kouichi Arai.
