Gekitou! Rinkan-Gakkou ("Fierce Battle! Open-Air School")
Japanese Drama CD



This CD features a series of drama sketches that were broadcast on the radio. Battle Athletes has three prominent styles of artwork: Video Game, OVA, and TV series. All three are similiar but have their own unique style and 'calling cards' (for example, there are always three lines under the eyes of the girls in the OVA. In the games, they look like two mountain or triangle shapes). This CD fits within the video game style, as it predates the OVA. The basic story is that the girls go to an open air school which has special examinations to check on the students' progress.

The booklet features some fun and unique video game-style artwork, including chibi forms, of the cast we grew to love from the first half of the TV series (Jessie, Ayla, Ling-Pha, Tanya, Ichino, and, of course, Akari).
