Adaptation based on the girls weight lifting manga by the author of "Kengan Ashura" hits Japanese TV in July of 2019
It's calories versus calisthenics in a new trailer for Dumbbell Nan Kilo Moteru? (now known in English as How Heavy Are the Dumbbells You Lift?), an upcoming TV anime based on the muscle-training manga written by Sandrovitch Yabako and illustrated by MAAM about a group of high school girls with a passion for fitness training.
The original Dumbbell Nan Kilo Moteru? manga is serialized in Shogakukan's Ura Sunday digital manga magazine. The story of the series follows Hibiki Sakura, a high school girl who loves to snack. When Hibiki decides to begin exercising to manage her weight, she gets roped into joining a gym that specializes in extreme muscle-training by her muscle-crazed classmate, Akemi Souryuuin.
The Dumbbell Nan Kilo Moteru? TV anime is directed by Mitsue Yamazaki and features animation production by Doga Kobo. The series will broadcast in Japan on AT-X, Tokyo MX, KBS Kyoto, Sun TV, and other stations beginning on July 03, 2019.
