Synopsis

uring a regular after-school grub crawl, gluttonous high schooler Hibiki Sakura is confronted about her ever-expanding waistline by her best friend, Ayaka Uehara. With her attempts at solitary exercise failing miserably, Hibiki decides to join the newly opened Silverman Gym. At her orientation, Hibiki runs into student council president and school idol Akemi Souryuuin. However, it soon turns out that Hibiki is in for a lot more than she bargained for. Not only is Silverman Gym full of world-renowned bodybuilders and athletes, but to make matters worse, Akemi turns out to be a total muscle fetishist! Grossed out by the scene unfolding before her eyes, Hibiki begins to leave, only to be stopped by trainer Naruzou Machio. Completely enthralled with her newfound Prince Charming, Hibiki signs up as a gym member. Now, as a result of her spur-of-the-moment decision, Hibiki must adapt to her new lifestyle. [Written by MAL Rewrite]

After struggling through both Magical Sempai and Are You Lost? yesterday, both of which regularly gestured towards the concept of humor without offering any genuinely compelling jokes, it is incredibly refreshing to watch a comedy that actually understands how to set up and pay off a gag. Heroine Hibiki Sakura actually has a funny, relatable internal voice, and her reactions are conveyed through creative, amusing expressions! Expectations are raised, only to be subverted through goofy visual comedy! Fluid animation is used to energetically sell dramatic punchlines!

Even if I weren’t coming off a sequence of genuinely bad horny comedies, Dumbbells would still stand as a strong example of the genre done right. Perhaps the show’s most core and crucial strength is the fact that Hibiki Sakura herself is a likable and inherently funny heroine. Her halfhearted dedication to physical fitness felt very true to life, and her reactions to the musclebound madness of her first gym trip were elevated through terrific expression work and her down-to-earth internal voice. I felt the second half of this episode leaned a little too far into the common issue of characters overexplaining why something is funny, but in general, Hibiki’s character serves as a terrific foundation for a gag comedy.

It also helps that Dumbbells actually looks really good. Many of this episode’s jokes relied on the dramatic tonal discord between Hibiki’s modern slice of life art design and the heavy-lined, hulking muscle men of her new gym. That visual contradiction is exemplified through this episode’s best visual gag: the absurd contrast between her trainer Machio’s generic pretty boy head and his towering, impossibly muscular physique. Dumbbells is even pretty smart about integrating its fanservice naturally into its drama, with the show’s regular demonstrations of fitness technique offering both education and fanservice in equal measure. Combine all that with this episode’s propulsive pacing, and you end up with an engaging, lighthearted premiere that earns my first solid recommendation of the season.

There are Anime that try to be the jack of all trades, and they very much succeed in doing so. Then there are the Anime that try to do the same, only to fail miserably and fall flat on their faces. This Anime is not exactly the latter, but it comes close to being so, and why is that you ask? Because it tries to do so many things, but it doesn’t quite hit the mark with what it does, and it becomes obvious to the audience that it is trying it’s hardest to stand out, rather than just be a silly ecchi disguised as a sports Anime. First of all, it tries to be an infomercial about sports, yet it doesn’t quite succeed in doing so since it’s busy trying to be a comedy as well. The comedy is not that funny or bone tickling anyways, since it is the same redundant gag repeated many times during each episode, and the whole gist of this Anime overall is being an ecchi that isn’t really an echhi, and that it is disguised as a gym infomercial or a slice of life about girls training. The comedy lands solidly due to the good production values and the decent delivery, but other than that there really isn’t any other merit to said comedy, since it gets repeated many times over until it turns trite. The production values are decent, from the decent animation, to the welcoming color palette, to the fine soundtrack, and there aren’t any complaints towards them. They are fine as they are and serve the show well enough. As for the characters, they are the typical, run-of-the-mill slice of life characters. They aren’t really anything to write home about, yet they aren’t really one dimensional per say. Hibiki is not really a poorly developed character, she is nice as she is. However, Akemi is the basic rich girl who lacks anything that would make her stand out. Think of any typical and plain rich character you could find elsewhere and you will get her. Characters aren’t really bad, but they border on tame for most of the time, and they feel like they are epitome of slice of life characters. This Anime is a good Anime for the ecchi fans out there. Panty shots, thigh shots, gigantic tatas and everything else an ecchi lover wants, they can find it here. It is hot and it most certainly delivers regarding that aspect. The characters are good looking enough as they are, and that alone will attract ecchi lovers, and the fanservice most certainly delivers as well. The unfunny faces could turn out to be a problem though, and they ruin from the immersion of enjoying the sexiness that this Anime gives off. Overall, this is a fine Anime. What really hinders it from being good is the fact that it tries so hard to be the jack of all trades, yet it only succeeds in one thing, and that is being sexy. It wasn’t a bad watch at the end of the day, it was a fine watch as it is, though I think that ecchi lovers will enjoy this one far more than I did, even when some unfunny bits are to be expected here and there.
