Hikari no Densetsu

Hikari Hikari

This shoujo sports anime dates from 1986, and is an example of what you can find on the web if you dig around. Only 3 episodes were ever fansubbed. It wasn’t a hit even at the time, but it still has a certain period charm.

Hikari, the pretty heroine, is rather good at rhythmic gymnastics. In the first episodes she shows just how good she is, defeating a sullen rival and being one of two girls from the school selected for the national championships. The other girl is Azuki, a talented senior whom Hikari admires. Hikari is encouraged by Ooshi, an older boy who is a national gymnastics champion. Hikari becomes interested in him, but he has a romantic interest in Azuki. Another friend of Hikari is Mao-kun, a rather punkish boy interested in pop music, who produces a tape of music for Hikari’s performance.

    Actually, this is one of the oldest anime that is still successful in Italy. It was reruned several times on the channels of the Mediaset group.
