"The Virus Resistance series" is a series featuring Kagamine Rin & Len by Minus-P.

Episode 02[edit | edit source]
- 第一次ウイルス抗戦 強襲編 (Dai Ichi Ji Virus Kousen Kyoushuu Hen)
- First Virus Resistance Episode: Assault
In the first song, Rin is attacked by a deadly virus that diminishes her voice and makes her body grow weak.
She sings as best she can, screaming out in pain and while having difficulty getting some words out, represented by staccato and some buggy vibrato. The PV uses several stock videos of war, implying some war had happened to wipe out life, as she promises vengeance on the viruses.
Episode 03[edit | edit source]
- 第一次ウイルス抗戦 漂着編 (Dai Ichi Ji Virus Kousen Hyouchaku Hen)
- First Virus Resistance Episode: Drifting Down
In the second video, Rin sees herself as a young girl before passing out. She then wakes up to a stark, bleached world full of broken parts, her right arm completely destroyed. She walks throughout the wasteland, searching for pieces of metal to reconstruct herself.
During this, she sings about wanting revenge for the person she had lost.
Episode 04[edit | edit source]
- 第一次ウイルス抗戦 再起動編 (Dai Ichi Ji Virus Kousen Saikidou Hen)
- First Virus Resistance Episode: Restart
In the final video, Rin has become a sort of a vigilante. She now has a new right arm made of replacement parts, covered up by a stark black sleeve that resembles her character model's. She also has all new weapons, as well as some sort of futuristic motorbike.
Throughout the story, she warns the viruses that she will now 'be the rain that brings peace'. Upon reaching a tower at the source of the viruses, she has a flash back of an evil owl that's somehow responsible for the death of her loved one. Shooting at every virus she sees, she fights until her last breath. Wanting revenge for the person she had lost, she forces herself to awaken, and turns herself into an antivirus, promising never to quit until peace is restored.
