Anime: Training with Hinako
Japanese animation is a very wide media which spans countless genres. From children television to hardcore porn
, from slapstick comedy
to sad dramas
, from Romantic Comedy
to bloody action
Now comes a 20 minute OVA
which fills one of the few niches still not covered by anime: Isshoni Training / Training with Hinako
is an animated fitness video. As is the case with most fitness videos, it is less about actually giving exercising instructions but more about giving an excuse to ogle a sparsely clothed, bouncy, sweaty girl.
Despite its very cheap production (countless repeats of the same sequences) it was quite a hit in Japan. All copies of the DVD were sold out immediately at release day.
A sequel, Sleeping With Hinako
, was released in February 2010. "Sleeping" alters the formula, and is meant to "simulate" a sleepover with Hinako. It acts as sleep ambiance and an alarm clock. The ambient footage is a repeating loop of Hinako sleeping in sexy poses from various camera angles
, giving the viewer something pretty to look at and listen to when falling asleep and waking up.
