Characters[edit]

Hibiki Sakura (紗倉 ひびき, Sakura Hibiki)
Voiced by: Ai Fairouz[1]
A second year High School girl who decides to go to the Silverman Gym in order to lose her increase in body fat. Due to lack of regular physical activity, she tends to tire out easily, furthermore, her terrible eating habits (consuming multiple forms of junk food during the day), tend to counter most of the progress she achieves through exercise.
Akemi Sōryūin (奏流院 朱美, Sōryūin Akemi)
Voiced by: Sora Amamiya[1]
A second year High School girl and School President of the same school as Sakura. She's popular in her school due to being a beautiful girl who excels in sports and academics along with coming from a rich family. She has a muscle-fetish and joins the Silverman Gym mostly to satisfy these desires. Unlike Sakura, she is in much better physical condition.
Ayaka Uehara (上原 彩也香, Uehara Ayaka)
Voiced by: Shizuka Ishigami[3]
Zina Void (ジーナ・ボイド, Zīna Boido)
Voiced by: Nao Tōyama[3]
Satomi Tachibana (立花 里美, Tachibana Satomi)
Voiced by: Yui Horie[4]
Naruzō Machio (街雄 鳴造, Machio Naruzō)
Voiced by: Kaito Ishikawa[5]
A trainer at the Silverman Gym who regularly coaches Sakura and Sōryūin. Due to Sakura getting a crush on him at first sight, this becomes her primary motivation to join. He's a dedicated, kindhearted and polite professional who always earnestly helps and supports Sakura. Although belying his charming demeanor and handsome profile, he is deceptively muscular. While normally looking lean in frame while covered up, he in fact has such large and well-defined physique that once he flexes his muscles, he reveals a muscle-mass so big he literally rips his clothes, comically making him become much larger and overall sporting a massive frame that is contrasting with his babyface.
Barnold Shortsinator (ハーンノルド・ドゲゲンチョネッガー, Hānnorudo Dogegenchoneggā)
Voiced by: Tesshō Genda[6]
