how heavy are the dumbbells you lift?

If you need some workout inspiration this season, look no further than the new anime adaptation of Yabako Sandrovich’s Danberu Nan kg Moteru? manga, AKA How Heavy Are the Dumbbells You Lift?. That enthusiasm for exercise is being celebrated further in new live-action music videos for the anime’s opening and ending themes.

First up is the music video for OP theme “Onegai Muscle,” as performed by Ai Fairouz (Hibiki Sakura) and Kaito Ishikawa (Naruzo Machio). This one stars 27-year-old muscle idol and professional wrestler Reika Saiki alongside 25-year-old bodybuilder Naotaka Yokokawa, who won 2017’s Tokyo Bodybuilding Championship.
