New Anime Song Fitness Program



Get fit with anison!
The Japanese companies King Record and Omoshiro Hojin Kayak have announced the release of a new fitness mobile app that allows people to work out to popular anime songs.

The program, which is set for release in 2017, is called “Anison Fitness” (Anime Song Fitness), or A-fit for short, and will be an aerobic style fitness program that will utilize motion capture technology in order to allow users to participate in guided workouts featuring their favorite anime songs. The program will feature a virtual “navigator” and routines developed by an assistant teacher at the Waseda University School of Sports Sciences. Volume one will include “Cruel Angel’s Thesis,” the opening song from the popular anime Neon Genesis Evangelion.

There is also a physical version of the class that functions much like a typical aerobics style class that you would find at most gyms.

 Currently, the developers are working on obtaining the rights to other songs for future volumes. The developers are also planning to eventually sell the product internationally as well.
Time to get fit!
A promotional video for this new program was also released. The video begins with the “A-fit teacher” and his two “A-fit girls” talking a little bit about the program. The video also briefly shows the virtual “navigator,” named Sakura Asahina. Finally, the video shows footage of people working out to “Cruel Angel’s Thesis.”


Although it’s still too early to tell if this program will be a success it certainly seems like an interesting idea with a lot of potential. I can already picture future versions featuring maids, cat girls and popular female anime characters working out on screen with you. If they manage to get some good licenses this thing might really take off, which may not be a bad thing since it’ll get people to move around and get a little healthier.
