As technology advanced, humanity gradually colonized the entire solar system, occupying planetary facilities from Mercury to Pluto. This results in a large-scale athletic tournament, the "Daiundoukai," where several aspiring female athletes from all around the solar system compete. The winner of the tournament is crowned the "Cosmo Beauty," obtaining a queenlike status.

When outgoing potato farmer Kanata Akehoshi was a child, she witnessed a meteor-like object falling from the sky, crashing in a nearby forest. When she came to investigate the wreckage, she saw a damaged spaceship and a girl who seemed to have been in it weakened by the impact. The girl gave Kanata two wristbands, alongside a request that Kanata join the Daiundoukai and become the Cosmo Beauty. Kanata obliged, but before she could ask for the girl's name, she mysteriously disappeared—leaving nothing,not even the crater caused by the crash. Since then, Kanata has devoted herself to training, aiming to fulfill her promise.

After winning the qualifying round to represent the planet Earth, Kanata goes to the University Satellite—an institution where she and other candidates study to prepare themselves for the upcoming competition. There, she meets and befriends her fellow competitors, helping them get along with each other to perform better in the games. As Kanata grows closer to the coveted title, so do her chances of meeting the girl who changed her fate—and she discovers an underlying mystery behind the Daiundoukai along the way.

This show is truly the epitome of hot garbage.

A reboot of the 1997-1998 original Battle Athletes Victory (that's why it's called ReSTART!), but with the fact that everything in here is unlikeable, from the insanely stupid story and plot that even a young kid today can muster a story far better than this, the easy-going characters, to the worse-than-subpar animation and visuals that are done by a studio which mainly does Hentai adapations for a living.

That's your TL;DR of this show, easy to buy, easy to own, easy as Dell.

The decent thing I can say is the music, definitely reeks of that nostalgic feel.

The words to describe this anime is mediocre and messed up.
First of all, am I the only one who noticed the very Cardcaptor Sakura like sequence in the OP? The running and wings and flying?

And second, this is seriously reminding me of Kanata no Astra.

The storyline is confused. Not confusing, CONFUSED. They took the time to put in some major issues, conflict and even all powerful villains, but it's as if they didn't know what to really persue, so they put in a bit of everything, which would wonderfully be solved by the power of FRIENDSHIP. UGH.

I'm not saying I don't like friendship. I'm saying read more

I am a big fan of the original series (1997-98). Naturally, I was expecting a lot from this one. When you are a fan of the original, you should however be ready to get something different and still be fair: this is not the same anime, and the codes have changed since 20 years ago. So let's be fair.

After 6 episodes, here is what I can tell: the characters are here to become the cosmo-beauty, they have their own issues to deal with, some which conflict with each other. That is OK, we find that everywhere, including the original series. Yet, I cannot say much read more

I was very hyped when I heard about a new installment to the Battle Athletes franchise. The original tv series and OVA were some of the first DVDs I'd ever bought as a kid. Not only do I have a lot of nostalgia for the franchise, but it also appealed to me personally, regardless of its flaws.

What a disappointment this anime is. I cannot give it a fair review because I dropped it after four episodes. Everything about it is below mediocre. While watching, I found myself pausing the anime every few seconds to criticize or complain about some aspect that stood out as poorly read more
