Stellvia of the Universe

It is the year 2356 AD, 189 years after a shockwave from a distant supernova decimated the Earth. Since that fateful day, humanity has begun training for a final mission to protect the planet from the inevitable oncoming 2nd shockwave - a mission whose failure means the annihilation of mankind. For Katase and her friends, their training at the foundation Stellvia is just the beginning of an adventure that could lead to saving the world, or seeing its end...

A girl goes out to space to do her best in what she wants to do. Whilst not similar in story, they do remind me of each other.
freakzilla
These two feel extremely simular. Both in Battle Athletes and in Stellvia there is a special prep school where girls play the main part of the story. (more in battle athletes though) In both animes there is a lot of competition between the top ranked students giving a lot of tension and room for good character development. Not to forget that both take place in space. Very very alike despite being classic vs unknown anime.
Najaraja

Battle Athletes and Stellvia both center around a young girl who is admitted into an academy.  While one is a sports academy and one is a flight academy, they are both set in space and the competition level is very high.

Both (weak) main characters reminded me a lot of each other. While finding a lot of hardships they are overly kind. Yet, they put those feelings aside to do what they want: become the best in their game.

Both shows feature older animation techniques, but the focus remains firmly on story. The struggle of the main protagonist in both Battle Athletes and CMB is very similar - you know that they are going to overcome their adversaries, but you'll have a whale of a time watching them do it :)

Kaleido Star

Kaleido Star

Sora is a sixteen year old girl who has travelled to the US to join the Kaleido Stage, one of the greatest circuses in existence. However, as luck would have it, she arrives to the audition late, which almost costs her the chance of a lifetime. Fortunately, she manages to join the Kaleido Stage anyways due to the compassion of Kalos, the owner of the troupe. With the help of her friends and Fool, the perverted spirit of the stage who has the ability to predict the future, Sora will overcome trials and tribulations and she struggles to become the Kaleido Star.

If you love to see the fight of the underdog, even though you know good will prevail in the end then these two shows are perfect for you. Not completely family friendly, there are the occasional naughty jokes that will suit them to teens and older, however both Kaleido and Battle Athletes are shows that can be enjoyed by a wide audience.
