1: On Your Mark
2: Ready...
3: Go!


A quirky but plucky anime from the creative forces behing Tenchi Muyo, Battle Athletes is addictive fun. Both the TV series and the OAV tell the same basic story, how Akari meets her friends and overcomes her fears but go about it in two very different ways. This version is more adult oriented and is darker in its tone. But the animation is clean, the characters cute, and the story is very entertaining.

Volume 1: "On Your Mark" Plot Summary:

In the future, war has been replaced by a contest which seems to be the child of a union between the Olympics and the Miss America Paegent. Enter Akari, the self doubting daughter of the greatest champion of the contest . She dreams of winning the contest and being crowned "Cosmic Beauty" but she lacks the confidence to make that real.

Akari does make it the floating training school, high above the Earth and there she meets new friends and challenges as she follows her dream.
