Japan’s Strongest Idol Girl Teams Up With Bodybuilder In “How Heavy Are the Dumbbells You Lift?” Anime Music Video

Japan’s “muscle idol” Reika Saiki is no stranger to putting on a show. As half of the “world’s physically strongest idol unit” Deadlift Lolita (along with partner Ladybeard), Saiki is a bodybuilding enthusiast and professional wrestler (Wrestle-1) who loves to cosplay–as seen with the duo’s amazing Chun-li photoshoot.

Her impressive physique and love of cosplay has made her an eyecatching spokeswoman, including a musical promotional video for the anime Uchi no Maid ga Uzasugiru! (Our Maid is Way Too Annoying!), where she uses her strength to rip apart chicken breasts and prepare a nutritious breakfast. She may have just found her most natural promotional fit in the form of new fitness-themed romance comedy Dumbbell Nan-Kilo Moteru? (How Heavy Are The Dumbbells You Lift?)

The video is set to the anime’s opening theme (Onegai Muscle) and is a collaboration with Japanese bodybuilder Naotaka Yokokawa. Here is a summary of the anime’s premise via Anime News Network.

“Hibiki … Are you fat again?”

A friend’s cruel words which cut like a knife into the heart of Hibiki Sakura, a high school girl who loves to eat. Hibiki decided to go on a diet to be absolutely thin by summer vacation, but she cannot keep exercising right alone. That’s when Hibiki found herself before a training gym! Upon joining the gym, Hibiki meets her beautiful and charismatic student council president Akemi Sōryūin and steps into the intense yet enjoyable world of weight-training.
