Venus Versus Virus episode 5 – dropped

At first this anime showed some pretty good points – interesting friends/love relationship, yuri possibilities and good action scenes – but it all quickly went down the drain.
I can’t help but compare it to the first arc of Bleach (before the trip to Soul Society), and
VVV loses by a landslide in all the important aspects – humour, character relationship, mysteries and fights. How the hell am I supposed to care for Sumire’s mind controlled friend if her previous screen time totals the whole five seconds? Attack on her “love interest” is the same kind – I don’t have the least bit of sympathy for him or her crisis, I just don’t know anything about him. Too much of previous episodes was wasted on 3rd rate fighting, and the main plot is simply boring. Not to mention serious plot inconsistencies that were in the third episode – like Lucia not seeing from the start that their customer was already dead and controlled by a virus.
