Plot Summary


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.

The first episode is now up on Funimation. While there's the possibility it comes to Crunchyroll, nothing has been said at the moment about that.

Episode 1

Hibiki has gained way too much weight, and being lured by free membership, she decides to join the gym and pump some iron. Little did she know that the gym she joined just so happens to be where a bunch of the world's strongest train. She's finding weightlifting to be quite challenging, but she's got a great trainer in Machio. That trainer sure knows how to hide his figure in that relatively petite body of his. Pretty funny way to start things out.

I can't watch it on Funi from Australia, do you know of anywhere else I could watch it?

"fat" Hibiki looked fine to me.

I wasn't expecting this to be a full length show, I am not sure how far they can take this if every episode is just work out instructions.

As I said in another post in this forum, this is an endemic problem with japanese society, doctors even have their own height/weight tables! Oh and the label does not go away, in the latest (63) manga chapter (that will not be part of this 12 episode adaption) a female weight instructor calls hibiki fat *cough* chubby several times.

If you want to see some real chubbiness depictions wait for an anime adaption of Plus-Sized Elf.

Take one part Sabagebu and one part Shimoneta with a dash of Grand Blue Dreaming and we end up here. And I don't need to see anything else this season as this is the OP & ED of the season hands down.

Ha Hibiki weighs 122 lbs (55.4 kg), I missed her height but she's probably the usual anime 5'1" height, can't wait until the episode when she realizes she's gaining weight by putting on muscle LOL. Having just come back from vacation where there was a ton of Japanese tourists, it's amazing how svelte the girls (well even the guys too) keep themselves, most of the Americans looked like fat pigs by comparison.

The wiki says she is about 1.60 mts (5'3") and 55 kg.
