       Information, Menu Translations, & Character Information.

Welcome to my Battle Athletess: Daiundoukai for the Sega Saturn FAQ. This
is my first attempt at a FAQ for an import game. While I do have some 
Japanese language skills, I am far from being fluent. So I will not be 
posting dialogue translations or anything of that sort, mainly because the
amount of kanji I know can be counted on my fingers.

I purchased this game recently because I absolutely love the TV series (and
to a lesser extent, the OAV series). The anime are based on this game, and 
I will dare to say they are simply the best video game-based anime ever, 
and in my opinion of the best anime ever.  I was disappointed when I 
discovered there was very little information to be found on the game and 
I decided to write this FAQ.

As of the writing of this FAQ (v0.9b), I have only played the game for an 
hour or two. Forgive me for any inaccuracies or oversights due to this.

Any help that you could provide for the FAQ would be helpful. Especially
game play tips.

   | 03.01 | Story                                                        |
   +-------+--------------------------------------------------------------+

Note that my interpretation of the story is based mainly on the OAV and TV 
series (Highly recommended! Especially the TV series.) and what little I 
can grasp from the game. It may differ.

Kanzaki Akari is the child of Kanzaki Tomoe, a former Cosmic Beauty 
(winner of the Daiundoukai). When Akari's mother dies, Grant Oldman, the
principal of the University Satellite (a school where girls train to 
become the Cosmic Beauty), who sees the potential in Akari to become the 
Cosmic Beauty, shows up and invites Akari to the University Satellite. She 
accepts reluctantly.

   +-------+--------------------------------------------------------------+

You are Akari's coach, and you must whip Akari into shape for the great 
competition (Daiundoukai). You must balance training and resting, as well
as managing the type of training Akari does. But time is limited. The game 
begins on 4998/09/01 and the Daiundoukai is on 4999/03/20. So you must use 
your time wisely.

   +-------+--------------------------------------------------------------+

- In the beginning of the game, Grant Oldman shows you the University 
Satellite's facilities. The selections he gives you are the locations in 
the University (Track, Pool, etc.). It doesn't matter what order you pick 
them in, just keep picking until you have seen everything.

- Going to the Nurse gives you an evaluation on how Akari is doing, and 
shows you her stats.

- The only way to regain Energy and to reduce Fatigue is to Rest for a day.
If you have no Energy of Full fatigue you will do damage to your stats, 
rather than increasing them. Also Akari will not show up on some days if 
her Energy is low or her Fatigue is high.

- On certain days (list pending) Akari will choose the exercise she wishes 
to do. On these days she will have encounters with her classmates. When 
events like this happen usually a new exercise will be available.
