posted on by Egan Loo
North American anime distributor Funimation announced at its Anime Expo panel on Friday that it will stream the Venus Project: Climax anime series as it airs in Japan. Funimation also acknowledged that it will stream the Chaos Dragon television anime series, after its website briefly listed the anime.
Venus Project tells the story of idols living in Japan in the near future. In this world, data devices and video technology have been progressing to new heights, and people are abuzz about a new form of entertainment — Formula Venus. In Formula Venus or "F-V," the chosen top idols battle in live performances with their willpower, skills, and all their experience gained.
The television series will actually be six anime episodes and six live-action variety episodes, each 30 minutes long. The anime's story will be set in the same world as the Venus Project PS Vita game's, but it will feature a new anime original protagonist, "an aspiring idol aiming to be Venus."
The anime will premiere on Tokyo MX on July 5 at 10:00 p.m.
