Anime: Starship Girl Yamamoto Yohko

"It's time you learned who you picked a fight with!"
Yamamoto Yohko

Based on novels by Shoji Takashi, Starship Girl Yamamoto Yohko is a sci-fi anime series featuring female characters. Set in the future, wars are fought differently, unlike how war originally was, which is people killing people for territory. These kinds of wars are competitive wars in which no one dies. The main protagonist of the series is Yohko Yamamoto, a girl from the 20th century who is what you call a Gamer Chick.

The show lasted on two OVA's and a 26 episode TV series which has never seen an English release of any form in North America, and the light novels were rereleased as of 2010.

  • Always Someone Better: Madoka strives to be beat Yohko, but always end up as second to her. Whether in studies, sports, even as a pilot.
  • Exty Years from Now: For the TV series, at least; released in 1999, set in 2999.
  • Forgot the Call: The first episode of the TV series has Yohko suffering from this and believing herself to be an ordinary high school girl. She gets better.
  • Gamer Chick
  • Humongous Mecha: The entire idea of the genre is played with in episode fifteen of the series.
  • No Export for You:
    • We only got the OVA's in the US, Canada and Oceania courtesy of RightStuf, but the TV series and obviously the original light novels have never been released outside of Japan
    • And many countries never got the series at all, and only the TV series aired in Southeast Asia, but they didn't get the OVA's, so this is a rare case of this happening on both sides of the globe.
  • Non-Lethal Warfare: All girls do battle with their spaceships. When defeated, they get transported out of the spaceship without getting killed.
  • Opposite-Sex Clone: Yohko's male clone, Yousuke.
    • Zig-zagged. Yohsuke is actually a Bifauxnen at first, but after a certain plot point happened, Yohsuke did indeed turn into a male. Madoka wasn't amused by the revelation (that Yohsuke's a she).
  • Star Fighter
  • The Other Darrin: Satsuki Yukino took over as Momiji in the TV series as Shiho Niiyama was sadly near death, to make this even sadder Shiho Niiyama passed away exactly 5 months after the TV series ended
  • Tomboyish Ponytail: Momiji
