“Next to me. Duh.”
Back again with all that exercise goodness, Ani Tore is back with its second season XX, to get you motivated and pumped up to exercise. Continuing on from its 1st season, it further expands on different types of exercise in which one can do out an about there house without having really any equipment.
Encouraging fitness and being fit, healthy and active are some always positives to note. When it came down to how simple the exercises were, a majority of them involved just the human body without any weights. This also being combined with the girls demonstrating to you how to do each exercise and which core muscles each certain routine targets, allows not just for an easy follow but also education.
The fanservice is still there from the first season, which is an added bonus if you enjoy it and no biggie if you don’t. The girls relationship with the “main protagonist”, as seen through a first person perspective is more highlighted in this season, with all the characters living in a dormitory.
Asami Best Girl!
OP/ED: Like its first season, Ani Tore XX only had an ED. This was mainly due to the anime being a short (again). However, consistency is maintained in both the song and its singers, with a cast (+1) reprising their roles and an energetic tune it provides to be a great match to an anime based around exercise.
Ani Tore XX Was it Good?
Ani Tore XX does a great job adding to those simpler exercises from the 1st season. With a little bit of fan service here and there, it creates not just a informative but a fun watch as well. Exercising is always great foundation to start being healthy and with the provided techniques it creates an easy entry barrier to follow and get into, just following the steps the girls provide.
Recommendations: For a short about exercising, there aren’t many other anime out there. When it comes to exercising however, it is more likely that you would see them in other anime under the “sport” genre. There is also seeing cute girls doing the teaching so all in all a decent bundle, thus I recommend the following:
- Non Non Biyori
- JK Meshi
- Yuru Yuri
- Kitakubu Katsudou Kiroku
