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. (Source: MU, edited)

This is how Ai Fairuz (ファイルーズあい) looks like since there's no profile available online as of now (only shows that she was/is in Profit Seiyuu Schooling).


Fixed the news w. Ai Fairouz profile.

Haha, I've read this series before and it gets weird fast with the amount of muscles. I bet they'll throw in commentary like in the manga about the exercise routines. Doga Kobo will make it happen!

That sound like this anime will be hilarious, however, this might be a short.

Nice! That's a fun manga that maybe hasn't motivated me to go to the gym, but I sure like seeing the girls doing exercice ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)

Doga Kobo being the one animating it is pretty surprising, but I have 0 complaints with how nice their quality is.

Probably a short as people are saying above, but the series is really fun to follow so I hope it will deliver.

Based Machio animated and Jason Statham.

Other than promising studio, it looks pretty fun. I bet it will be short, but who cares.

The lastly ever waited sparkle of motivation to stick to fitness this might be, maybe. Aside from that, the manga is pretty entertaining and actually teach you a thing or two about how to properly do you fitness journey

The manga that had the most gratuitious depictions of toned girls sweating a river while exercising with suggestive camera angles is getting an anime!?!

Is this late Christmas or what? Hell YES!!
