Isshoni Training, or Training with Hinako, is a workout video for out-of-shape otaku. It is lead by a nearly undressed anime teen named Hinako.

It’s another example of the increasing market of anime-inspired products targeting the voracious and seemingly bottomless wallets of the otaku population.

The exercises that Hinako covers are: push-ups, sit-ups, squats, including strange on the bed versions. And something that can only described as a chest bouncing exercise.

The first three exercises (push-ups, sit-ups, and squats) are a major part of any workout, but counting on the bed and chest bounces are completely new and somehow they are not designed to be performed for real, at least not without the proper warmup.

Although this anime is a so-called “workout video”, only about two-thirds of it is actually of Hinako performing her exercises. The rest of the anime includes Hinako talking about how she’s actually a real human who was pulled into the world of anime and is now acting in a new anime series.

Training With Hinako is not meant for younger audiences, and it’s pretty clear that the working out part is just a cover for its main selling point, being extremely ecchi.

Main Characters

Hinako is a 16-year-old girl who loves to exercise. Hinako was once a human, but she was turned into an anime character when she was a second-year middle-school student. Thanks to: forevergeek

    I was going to say that but you beat me to it. πŸ˜† I haven’t seen this show and don’t plan to (lol), I just find the idea hilarious. But why bother even pretending to be an exercise show? Just be honest and call it “Fanservice With Hinako”!

    I wonder if she had a chest like that when she was human? >.>

    That might be scary at the age of 16, no? x.x

  • Pearl Milk Tea says:

    Oh Hinako, if you like to exercise so much, how come you still have so much excessive fat on your chest?? :rolleyes:

  • ware4me says:

    Hmm… maybe Hinako does little pushups? :drop:

    … and 4mew hides products from that market under her bed!! (where her mom can’t find it…)

  • ware4me says:

    That’s not true… and somehow 4me thinks that Vexy doesn’t need ecchi training πŸ˜›

  • LittleVexy says:

    Nyuuu~ vexy does, vexy does.. Vexy is so curvy… u.u

    Curvy?

    Vexy is full of curves? :helphelp:

  • LittleVexy says:
