Added DiffLines:

*MartialArtsUniform: The first episode has a flashback to when Yuka and Satomi studied Kyokushin Karate, under Yuka's grandfather. Both are shown wearing traditional white training dogis, each with a black belt. In the present, their waitress uniforms become their default combat attire; complete with UFC style fight gloves and ankle guards.

Added DiffLines:

* AdaptationAmalgamation: The OVA is loosely based on the ''[[Videogame/AdvancedVariableGeo Advanced V.G.]]'' series, which removed the {{hentai}} content and introduced the core narrative aspect - which has [[BigBad Miranda Jahana]] manipulating [[TheProtagonist Yuka]] and the other waitresses from behind-the-scenes. Though the OVA retains the "losing conditions" of the original [[HGame H-Game]] series. Making it a combination of the two that's LighterAndSofter than the original, while still providing a fair amount of {{fanservice}}.

* SexSells: This is the conceit of the ''Variable Geo'' franchise, of course, but this is also invoked in-series, as the promise of nudity is [[{{Fanservice}} the main draw]] of the V.G. tournament. [[ComeForTheXStayForTheY The audience gets to watch hot waitresses duke it out in the ring, then see a free strip show afterward.]] At Level-1, they even get [[spoiler:a live sex show, since the loser has to strip and masturbate in the ring]].

''Variable Geo'' is a three-episode OVA series produced in 1996 by Creator/{{KSS}}, which centers around a mixed martial arts tournament for combat waitresses, who're competing for the ultimate prize: 10 million yen, a piece of prime real estate, and a year's worth of free advertising for their establishment. Needless to say, that's a pretty sweet deal... but there's also a catch:

The loser of each match [[ShamefulStrip has to strip for the crowd]] and, at level-1, [[ADateWithRosiePalms they've gotta put on a show.]]

Unfortunately, the potential for public humiliation is the least of their concerns, as the [[UnwittingPawn unsuspecting vixens]] are about learn that [[NotJustATournament the competition isn't as friendly as it initially seems.]] A nefarious plot that involves kidnappings, unsanctioned matches, and inhumane experiments, unfolds behind the curtain of the tournament proceedings, and the ones behind it all are the very people sponsoring it: [[NebulousEvilOrganization The Jahana Group.]]

[[TheProtagonist Yuka Takeuichi]] gets drawn into the plot when her best friend and old sparring partner, [[{{Deuteragonist}} Satomi Yajima]], goes missing. And is eventually joined by Jun Kubota and Manami Kusunoki in trying to find her. At the same time, [[LadyOfWar Reimi Jahana]] is also made aware of these events and learns that her company is involved, prompting her to investigate the matter personally. How do these pieces fit together, and what is The Jahana Group's purpose?

[[TheAnimeOfTheGame Based on]] the {{Eroge}} series of the same name, though it loosely adapts the plot of ''[[VideoGame/AdvancedVariableGeo Advanced V.G.]]'' instead. So while the "losing conditions" are still present, the hentai content isn't; making it more of an {{ecchi}} series.

series.

The story of the OVA centres around "Variable Geo" or "V.G.", a global mixed martial arts tournament specifically for combat waitresses. Competitors fight against each other in hopes of winning the ultimate prize: 10 million yen, a piece of prime real estate, and a year's worth of free advertising for the establishment that employs them. The winner of a given match moves up in the rankings. The loser of each match [[ShamefulStrip has to strip for the crowd]]. At a certain level of competition, they also have to...[[ADateWithRosiePalms put on a show]].

The potential for public humiliation soon becomes the least of the fighters' concerns, as the [[UnwittingPawn unsuspecting vixens]] eventually learn that [[NotJustATournament the competition is a front for something far more sinister]]. A nefarious plot that involves kidnappings, unsanctioned matches, and inhumane experiments unfolds behind the scenes of the tournament proceedings, and the ones behind it all are the very people sponsoring it: [[NebulousEvilOrganization The Jyahana Group]].

One of the tournament's competitors, [[TheProtagonist Yuka Takeuichi]], falls into the plot when her best friend and old sparring partner, [[{{Deuteragonist}} Satomi Yajima]], goes missing. Yuka fights against--and alongside--several other tournament competitors as they search for the truth behind V.G. At the same time, [[LadyOfWar Reimi Jyahana]] becomes aware that her company is involved in the nasty goings-on behind V.G., which prompts her to investigate the matter personally. How do these pieces fit together, and what is The Jyahana Group's purpose?



!!''Variable Geo'' provides examples of:

* ActionGirl: It's a series about a MMA competition for combat waitresses, 'nuff said.
** WorldOfActionGirls: The competition is open to women only, most of whom are [[SupernaturalMartialArts trained martial artists]] who possess [[KiManipulation high-levels of spirit energy.]]
* AdaptationalJerkass: In the ''VideoGame/AdvancedVariableGeo'' series, Yuuki is shown to be a GoodSamaritan who protects other women from muggers and rapists, but here, she's nearly made out to be a rapist, herself, by having her [[ThanksForTheMammary sexually]] [[ForcefulKiss harass]] Satomi during their fight.
* AdaptationInducedPlothole: The opening cutscene of ''Advanced V.G. II's'' story mode suggests that it takes place sometime after the OVA (see the ContinuityNod entry). However, this creates two problems:
** First, Miranda is dead in the OVA, whereas in the game series, she doesn't die until the conclusion of part II.
** Second, Tamao says she saw the match between Yuka and Jun on television, yet she didn't know who Satomi was. Despite her being present at ringside and was the one who [[ThePromise gave Yuka the impetus to win.]]
* ADateWithRosiePalms: The penalty for losing [[spoiler:at level-1]] mandates the loser strip and do this for the crowd.
* AgeLift: In the ''Advanced V.G.'' series, Yuka and Satomi's official ages are listed [[http://www.fightabase.com/charMain.aspx?id=4895 as 18]] and [[http://www.fightabase.com/charMain.aspx?id=3914 17 years old]] respectively. But their character bios in the ''"Complete Visual Collection"'' has them being 17 and 16 instead.
* AllOrNothing: In VG, there's no such thing as "second place". Either you become champion, or you leave empty-handed and publicly humiliated. Hence, the penalty for losing any match at rank 3 and above, is to [[ShamefulStrip strip in the ring and bare themselves to the crowd in disgrace.]]

** Satomi's role in the game series itself is tangential, at best, due to her friendship with Yuka. Whereas the OVA casts her as [[{{Deuteragonist}} the deuteragonist]] by giving her [[PsychicLink an unexplained rapport with Yuka]], that allows them to sense one another's feelings. Their bond becomes the cornerstone of the plot, once Satomi goes missing, prompting Yuka to search for her.
** Likewise, the anime adaptation makes Jun integral in helping Yuka find Satomi and she's also the one who frees Chiho from Siritahi's control, by defeating her.

* ChildhoodFriends: Yuka and Satomi's [[BestFriend friendship]] is the cornerstone of the OVA's plot and is what sets it in motion. They've known each other since they were kids, but by the start of the series, they've begun drifting apart and have mostly kept in contact through work.
