Creative Freaks' Burn Fat With Me smartphone apps promise to provide the "moétivation" to lose weight and build muscle. The earlier version had three bishoujo, your childhood friend, an outspoken tomboy and the school's hot class president/gymnast, guiding you through push-ups, sit-ups and squats. Now, the sequel has hit Japan, and this one is all about getting over your hikikomori tendencies with a bit of running.
The new smart phone will plot a course on your 2D surrogates world, then, as you run, it will use the phone's GPS to show your position relative to the girl running with you and as she voices encouraging comments. Events will unlock based on on your progress.
The app with track speed and distances from these runs to chart your progress and scratch the otaku itch for data.
And, there's running battles to race against your virtual friends and rivals.
As with any good fitness app, you can play your own songs and playlists with training.
An otomo Burn Fat With Me For Girls was introduced in Japan this pst summer. Expansion has been more focused on progress tracking and story episodes.
