This is latest installment in the Iczer saga. Iczer 1, first released in Japan in 1985, was both an early adopter of the new OAV format and the "babes in armor" style - referring to girls who wear skintight battle suits with large blades, fins, wings, etc. attached.
Often, to get into the tight fitting suits, it involves a transformation sequence in which the clothes the heroine was wearing are torn, spun off or simply vanishing, leaving the poor girl naked for a brief moment until the new armor literally welds itself to the warrior.
In Iczerlion, Earth is once again threatened. It is up to young Nagisa Kai, a high school girl who dreams of becoming a pro wrestler, to don the battle suit and a defeat the evil enemies.
She does have help in the form of three other Iczelions warriors and the video spends an inordinately long time with Nagisa refusing to accept her duty before finally reaching the climactic battle. Not a video of the impatient!
