Overview[edit]

"Venus" is Tackey & Tsubasa's sixth single, and currently their best selling single, reaching the 300,000 copies sold mark. The a-side song "Venus" was used in commercials for the ringtone service site, Mu-Mo. The b-side song "Kimi no Na wo Yobitai" was used as the ending theme for the TBS show "Zubari Iu wa yo." The other b-side song "Never Ever" was used as the opening theme song for the anime "Capeta."

Sample of the translated lyrics:

Burn, Venus, hotly, Venus
Your eyes scorch my heart
Love is a long silk road
And if I hesitate, you'll want to forget me
Feel, Venus, hotly, Venus
Show me a wind like that of a storm
You know the answer
Let loose the sparkling of your love[1]
