Anime Description: Battle Athletes

Battle Athletes takes place in the far future of the year 4999 (as opposed to 4998 in the TV series) and takes place after a tumultuous period for humanity. Wars nearly devastated the entire planet (first between humanity and later against an alien race).

The war against the aliens has lasted for a long period of time, and eventually became a contest of physical strength after negotiations between both sides. Peace fell over the Earth once again when a human competitor won the historic competition.

Presently, a competition known as the "Cosmic Beauty" (held by the United Systems Sports Academy) has become all the rage around the world, and is held at the famous University Satellite. Many girls from around the world gather at this special event to compete for this prestigious title.

The story begins with Akari Kanzaki, the daughter of a past Cosmic Beauty. Hoping to follow in her mother's footsteps, she trains to compete in the games. However, the road to victory is a long and rigorous one. Will Akari live her dream and come out on top?
