This post is brought you by Weathering with You (or Tenki no Ko), Makoto Shinkai’s latest film in which it’s a story of Hodaka Morishima, a runaway boy who met a girl in Tokyo named Hina Amano in which she can control weather.
While I’m not a big fan of Makoto Shinkai’s work which spans for over 20 years, I’ve enjoyed some of his films like Voices of a Distant Star, Your Name, and now Weathering with You as his latest film is quite enjoyable to watch. I hope that I’ll make a post about that film someday but for now, it’s time to discuss those two shows airing in Summer 2019 as we’ve reached the end of August.
01. Dumbbell Nan Kilo Moteru?
Now then, let’s start with Dumbbell Nan Kilo Moteru? and I have to say that there’s some significant development for Hibiki Sakura. While she originally wanted to lose some pounds upon exercising at the Silverman Gym, Hibiki developed stronger muscles that she can do amazing feats like destroying a sandbag with a single punch, to beating Gina Boyd (or Zina Voyd) in an arm wrestling match. Yeah, I might say that Hibiki Sakura might become the strongest woman at the end of this anime series.
Anyways, I’ve enjoyed watching Dumbbell Nan Kilo Moteru? so far because not only there’s helpful exercising tips, but the story is getting interesting to the point that Hibiki’s classmates and teachers are joining her at the Silverman Gym. Oh by the way, there’s actually a character based on Arnold Schwarzenegger (named Barnold Shortsinator) in which not only Hibiki Sakura and her friend Ayaka Uehara are fans of him, but it turns out that Barnold is actually Naruzo’s bodybuilding instructor. Yeah, this anime is getting crazy and I really love it!
02. Dungeon ni Deai wo Motomeru no wa Machigatteiru no Darou ka?
Moving onto DanMachi Season 2 where things are going well for Bell Cranel and the Hestia Familia. Not only Welf Crozzo, Lilliluka Erde, and Mikoto Yamato officially joining the Hestia Familia, but they also defeated the Apollo Familia where Bell managed to outlast Apollo’s strongest adventurer Hyakinthos Clio with a single punch! Because of this, Hestia managed to get Apollo’s property, but sadly she’s in debt because of the Hestia Knife in which Bell’s weapon costs around 200 million valis.
But still, what’s important is that Bell Cranel remained in the Hestia Familia and not only that, but his level has gone up to 3 which means that many of the gods and goddesses want to get their hands on him like Freya and Ishtar. Speaking of the Ishtar Familia, they have a renard named Sanjouno Haruhime in which Ishtar made her as a prostitute and they’re gonna sacrifice her in order to crush the Freya Familia. Of course, Bell Cranel will rescue Haruhime as he’ll face another uphill battle on this second season!
Well then, I’ll see you again at the end of September for the conclusion of these two shows!
