Another day, another interesting anime to showcase! This time we’re talking about Yabako Sandrovich’s manga series “Dumbbell Nan Kilo Moteru?” aka (How Many Kilograms are the Dumbbells You Lift?) as it’s confirmed to be receiving a TV anime adaptation in Summer 2019.
Here’s the synopsis for the anime:
“Sakura Hibiki is your average high school girl, with a voracious appetite. Noticing her clothes tightening in lieu of her slowly expanding waistline she decides to look into enrolling in the nearby gym. There she runs into a girl from her grade named Souryuuin Akemi.
Akemi, who has a muscle fetish tries to get Hibiki to enroll in the gym despite its high ratio of macho men. Thankfully a beautiful trainer, Machio, appears and unknowingly convinces her to enroll and start her quest to a great body.”
OK, I’m just gonna cut right to the point and say what you’re CLEARLY thinking right now, yes, the “plot” did catch my eye I’ll admit it but hear me out first. I’ve heard that this anime has some pretty dope ass action fight moments and it’s supposedly quite funny too so I thought that’s something worth checking out. Aside from Konosuba and The Devil Is a Part-Timer, there hasn’t been an anime that has made me laugh out loud so maybe this could be it.
Aaaaand, I haven’t seen a work-out anime before so it might be good. Yeah….you’re not buying it huh? Whatever, I’m still watching it.
