Get ready to marvel at gyaru gains as Doga Kobo preps to release Dumbbell Nan-Kilo Moteru? this summer.
The “body-building” comedy stars Hibiki, a typical high school girl who loves food. She decides to join a gym after noticing that she’s packing on the pounds, and she meets student council president Akemi there. Akemi only joined the gym to satisfy her muscle fetish, but together with trainer Machio, they decide to work towards having a great body.
Doga Kobo is no stranger to adapting niche series staring cute girls — New Game!, Love Lab, and Himouto! Umaru-chan are some big name examples. Mitsue Yamazaki (Monthly Girls’ Nozaki-kun) is directing and Fumihiko Shimo (New Game!) will write the screenplay.
Yabako Sandrovich and MAAM launched the manga in 2016, so you can preview the buff story.
