If you look, you may find a lot of anime that feature fitness.
Of course, not every anime is helpful if you’re trying to get in shape, but there are shows you can watch and use to your advantage.
More and more people are looking for novel ways to get in shape as they strive to improve their health and well-being. Japanese manga and animation have emerged as a fruitful medium for spreading messages of health and fitness.
I think it’s time we started discussing the points.
1. Do you mind telling me how heavy your dumbbells are?
It’s like a scene out of the anime series How Heavy Are the Dumbbells You Lift.
- The episodes are constantly concerned with:
- Conditioning oneself.
- the ins and outs of calorie counting, gym equipment usage, and other such fitness-related administrative tasks.
- And the atmosphere and music are ideal for a vigorous workout.
- The calmer atmosphere of the anime makes it ideal for a “light” workout.
Exercising in this series is best kept light, although stretching and running in place will do the trick.
- If you have a combative nature, you might be interested in taking up boxing.
It was in the Weekly Shnen Magazine that the original version of “Fighting Spirit” (Hajime no Ippo) appeared in 1989. An almost 100-episode anime series was adapted from the manga. Ippo Makunouchi is an introverted teen who regularly lends a hand at the family business.
Ippo is being repeatedly bullied, and he has no way to stop it in the cautious hero season. Ippo is brutally beaten by a gang of bullies one day, until a professional boxer named Mamoru Takamura shows up to aid. Ippo’s innate skill in the ring impresses Mamoru, so he offers to help him turn his hobby into a career.
- The Iron Fortress Kabaneri
Battles, HYPE music, and intense action are also staples of Kabaneri of the Iron Fortress.
A Kabani is a type of monster that hunts and consumes humans, and this is the central theme of the story.
The female protagonist, Mumei, is part Kabani, and so is Ikoma (the male MC).
Many inspiring scenes await you as you work out and get in shape.
- Watching Run with the Wind will inspire you to hit the pavement
Interestingly enough, the Japanese novel Kaze ga Tsuyoku Fuiteiru, published in 2006, served as inspiration for Run with the Wind. Shion Miura’s novel was adapted into a manga, a live-action film, and an anime in the late 2000s.
Kakeru Kurahara, a standout on the high school track team, is being chased at the beginning of the story after he has been discovered shoplifting. After the chase, he runs across Haiji Kiyose, who is suitably impressed by Kurahara’s speed and agility. Kiyose succeeds in convincing Kurahara to aid the Kansei University Track Club in their quest to win the Hakone Ekiden, a prestigious track marathon for universities.
- Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann
Gurren Lagann is among the most motivational anime series out there. This show gives the Mecha genre a “cool” image with its rapid speed.
Kamina, Simon’s teacher and Yoko’s boyfriend, steals the show.
They emerge from their long underground slumber and immediately return to their normal lifestyles.
Because of this, there are fight scenes, hilarious jokes, and unexpected turns in the plot. Not to mention the FANTASTIC soundtrack!
- Seeing Prince of Tennis on the big screen will inspire you to hit the courts.
TV Tokyo animated Tenisu no jisama (Prince of Tennis in the West) in 2001. Almost 200 episodes made up the anime. Oddly enough, since 2003, 15 stage musicals have been based on the anime. Those with a passion for both tennis and musicals may like this franchise.
In Prince of Tennis, twelve-year-old tennis prodigy Ryoma Echizen returns to Japan to enroll at a prestigious private school recognized for its championship tennis programmer. Echizen has a deep passion for tennis and a strong desire to follow in his father’s footsteps by attending the same exclusive institution.
- It’s impossible to play Yowamushi Pedal and not be inspired to get on two wheels immediately.
Yowamushi Pedal follows a high school student named Sakamichi Onoda who is having problems establishing friendships. When Onoda finds out that not enough students signed up for the anime club, he becomes disappointed and looks for other activities to participate in.
Onoda’s classmate and buddy, Imaizumi, is in awe of how well and how far he can ride the bike despite the fact that it is an old “mamachari.” By sheer persistence, Imaizumi succeeds in convincing Onoda to join the school’s bike racing club.
- The Black Lagoon
The anime Black Lagoon centers on a gang of thieves (guns, etc.). Dutch, who is chill and chill, is the boss.
Revy Rebecca, also a significant character, is a show-stealer thanks to her two guns and so her moniker of “two hands.”
And then there’s Rock, a businessman who happens to cross paths with them. And there’s Benny, a brilliant guy.
While you’re working out, almost every episode has enough excitement to keep you on the run.
- Jujutsu Kaisen
The anime Jujutsu Kaisen is one of the newest Shonen series. And in the year 2021, things are going exceptionally well. It’s dark and it’s brutal in different ways.
This anime features music that can be used as motivation when working out. This is accurate from the very first episode.
If you can get through the first half of the show, you’re in for a treat since the series really improves from here on out. Providing an abundance of options for physical activity and entertainment.
- Metal Panic!
Full Metal Panic features the character Sousuke Sagara, who is a mecha pilot. A different anti-terror organization employs him.
He is tasked with guarding Kaname Chidori, and the two eventually fall in love despite themselves.
Good soundtrack, exciting scenes, and lots of action are what you’d want for a mecha/action anime with military components.
