Released in 1989. Produced by Bandai Visual, Gakken, and Shochiku. Animation by Kugatsusha and Triangle Staff.
War breaks out between 2 nations on a terraformed Venus, catching a teenage motorized unicycle team unaware. At the same time, a reporter from Earth is trying to keep up with the team to document the story.
I'm usually not a fan of war movies, but Venus Wars was just so good that I couldn't refuse it. For an 80s anime movie it is high quality Akira level animation. The story and characters are interesting. It's the typical story of a punk kid who ends up being the hero. If you love tanks, motorcycles and war, Venus Wars is right up your alley!
Buy From Amazon
You can buy this movie from Amazon. It goes for around $20-30 (US).
Venus Wars can be downloaded via torrents from Nyaa. This site is the best, safest, and most dependable resource to get anime for free.Download from Nyaa
- If you don't know what torrents are, YouTube has tutorials. Be mindful that torrent downloads aren't instant. Depending on your Internet speed and number of seeds, it could take up to 24 hours for an anime to download.
- If you need a torrent client, these are the best (they're all free).
- The majority of video downloads from Nyaa are in “MKV” format, and less commonly in “AVI”. If you need a good video player to play these formats, VLC Media Player is the best (and it's free). It's available on every OS, including iOS and Android.
Is the MKV too big?
If you download a large Blu-ray quality MKV from Nyaa, it is possible that your computer or phone/tablet isn't fast enough to play it at full speed. In this case, you can use HandBrake. It's a free video converter; use it to shrink down the video. If you need help using HandBrake, YouTube has tutorials. Another option is to use Plex (mentioned below) because it automatically downsamples large videos when it streams them to your TV.
Playing on your TV
The easiest way to play MKV and AVI videos on your TV is with Plex. It streams movies from your computer to your TV through your Wi-Fi. It's a free app. Install it on your Windows or Mac, then install it on your set-top box (Apple TV, Roku, Fire sticks, etc.). Just note that Plex will only detect these movies in an Other Videos library because the “Movies” library doesn't detect rare/obscure anime classics. If you need help, YouTube has tutorials.
