You must have been living under a dumbbell if you haven’t heard of the new anime ‘Danberu nan kiro moteru?’ or ‘How heavy are the Dumbbells you lift?’ This new anime about fit high school girls going to the gym is actually educational and viewers will be exposed to the correct form when using gym equipment. Kind of like Cells at Work or Dr. Stone being educational. But I’m here to present another masterpiece worthy of your attention, “Plus sized Elf”.
Be warned. If you are uncomfortable with the idea of about girls being unhappy with their weight or fat jokes, this might not be for you
Plus sized Elf is about Naoe-kun, a massage therapist in Tokyo. He encounters a t h i c c new customer, Erufuda-san, except she’s an elf! Her dilemma is that after coming to Tokyo, she’s gorged herself on French fries and can’t get through the portal home to start her own potato farm. Together, they start a weight loss journey and is joined by many other fantastical creature-women who have all fallen victim to modern society’s delicious junk food.
There’s a whole range of weight loss tips here, ranging from how to do body squats and stretches, to how to fry potatoes for less calories – but we all know that’s not really why you’re here. All the girls are drawn 乇乂ㄒ尺卂 ㄒ卄丨匚匚, and I don’t recommend bringing this up within your lectures, because it’s ecchi. The comedy is pretty decent and light hearted as well. There’s also a colourful range of characters with colourful interactions with each other. Anyway, I have nothing else to say about this. Potato is dead, go read this.
