''Genmu Senki Leda'' is a fantasy {{OVA}} from 1985 about Yohko, an OrdinaryHighSchoolStudent who is in love and [[CannotSpitItOut unable to confess her feelings]]. Her angst inspires her to compose a piece of piano music that much to her surprise acts as a magical trigger and [[TrappedInAnotherWorld transports her to another world]] called Ashanti. There she learns that she is the legendary warrior of Leda and is tasked with bringing down the evil Master Zell who wants to use Yohko's composition for his own nefarious purposes.

!!This anime provides examples of:

* BigBad: Master Zell.
* BlondGuysAreEvil: Zell.
* CannotSpitItOut: Yohko, towards her unnamed crush.
* ChainmailBikini: Yohko wears a blue one after she transforms. Yoni's outfit also resembles this trope, although its less armored-looking.
* TheChosenOne: There's a prophecy in Ashanti saying that whenever Leda's power is used for evil, a warrior from another world will come to protect it. In this case, that warrior is Yohko.
* CreepyCrossdresser: Zell wears makeup, long nails, and jewelry, and it's definitely played for creepyness.
* FaceHeelTurn: Zell used to be a supporter of Leda before he betrayed his comrades and turned evil.
* FacelessEye: Zell has a big eyeball on his turban that's quite icky-looking. [[spoiler: He uses it to attack people's psyches.]]
* {{HairOfGoldHeartOfGold}}/{{Innocent Blue Eyes}}: Yoni, to emphasize her role as Leda's shrine maiden.
* HaveYouSeenMyGod: Leda is said to be/have been a goddess, but in present-day Ashanti, she's mostly remembered as a legend, her shrine has fallen into ruins, and only one of her shrine maidens has survived.
* HumongousMecha: Yohko awakens hers in Leda's shrine. Yoni also has a clunkier less-cool-looking one.
* InterdimensionalTravelDevice: Yohko's walkman.
* LotusEaterMachine: [[spoiler: Zell traps Yohko in one towards the end, but she breaks out after she [[SpottingTheThread spots the thread]].]]
* MacGuffin: Yohko's walkman. Or more accurately, the song recorded on the tape inside the walkman.
* MagicalGirlWarrior: Yohko, in a manner similar to the [[Manga/MagicKnightRayearth Magic Knights]].
* {{Miko}}: Yoni describes herself as Leda's shrine maiden, although her outfit is completely different from real-world {{miko}}s.
* OminousFloatingCastle: Zell lives in one, although it used to belong to Leda's supporters.
* RedheadedHero: Yohko, although she's not particularly [[FieryRedhead fiery]].
* SatelliteLoveInterest: Yohko's love interest. It's clear that Yohko loves him, and she composed en entire song just to show how much she loves him, but... she's never spoken to him, doesn't really know anything about him, he doesn't do anything besides walk down a road, he never speaks [[spoiler:aside from inside Zell's illusion, but that one's a fake anyway]], and we never even get to see what he really looks like. He only exists to motivate Yohko to compose the song at the start and later return to Earth. And to establish that she is an OrdinaryHighSchoolStudent with a crush.
* SaveBothWorlds: Yohko's mission, since Zell is plotting to invade and conquer Earth.
* StuffBlowingUp: The final battle goes all out with the explosions.
* [[SummonEverymanHero Summon Everygirl Hero]]: How Yohko ends up in Ashanti. A weird case since [[BigBad Zell]] is the one who summons her (because he wants her MacGuffin), but she still serves the role of supporting LaResistance.
* TalkingAnimal: Ringhum, the talking dog.
* TransformationSequence: Yohko gets eaten by a giant flower during hers.
* TrappedInAnotherWorld: The plot revolves around this trope.
