OBSCURE O.V.A.S, *Battle Skipper
Set in the not-to-distant-future, Battle Skipper is a 3-episode OVA series, despite the fact the DVD release is labeled as a “movie”.
The plot involves the five members of the Etiquette Club in one of Japan’s most prestigious schools are secretly a group of crimefighting mecha pilots called the Ex-Stars. Their main competition is the school’s other club, the Debutante Club. Their leader is planning on taking over the world with her own army of mechas. So, the Ex-Stars try to foil their plans, while still keeping a decent grade average!
This series was based on a Japanese toy line, but became its own unique and dynamic action comedy series. For fans of Project A-Ko or Sailor Moon, Battle Skipper is a hilarious anime with lots of great gags and a wonderful sense of fun
