An animated series based on the printed comic series of the same name. This series follows the life of Yawara Inokuma, a young judo prodigy, as she trains for the Olympic Games in Barcelona. Along the way, she faces the school, social and family crises typical of any teenage girl, as well as a number of crises only a world-class judo student could have. Written by

One of the most underrated Anime Series from the 80s
This is my favorite Anime. It has a very good plot.
You don't see all kinds of fantasy/Sci-Fi stuff going on in this series. What you do see is the life of a young teenaged girl who is struggling with her grandfather's desire for her to be an Olympic Judo Champion, while she wants to only be a teenaged girl.
The Characters in this series are very good and the story keeps you hanging on for more. Yawara is very loveable, too.
One thing to note that when this show was airing in Japan, it aired during the same timeslot as Ranma 1/2 and beat it in ratings.
