How Heavy Are the Dumbbells You Lift? is undoubtedly one of the most hyped anime coming into the summer 2019 season. It follows a girl trying to be fit, so she joins a gym to work out. And to help perform the anime, seiyuu Ai Fairouz, who voices protagonist Hibiki Sakura, stopped by Gold’s Gym in Harajuku, Tokyo to pump some iron in a new video:
In the video, she teamed up with entertainer Kin’nikun Nakayama , who is quite known in Japan to be quite ripped. Ai Fairouz herself also has some muscle, which is proof that she works out herself too!
As for the anime itself, it adapts Sandrovich and MAAM’s “bodybuilding comedy” manga of the same name. It will follow Hibiki, who loves eating but is quite worried about her weight. So she goes to the gym and work out. There, she also finds out that Akemi, her school’s student council president, also works out and even has a muscle fetish…
The series will premiere in Japan on 3 July 2019 at around 10:30 pm via Tokyo MX, KBS Kyoto, Sun TV, and other stations.
