And now for something truly strange (but also weirdly appropriate), Japanese girls magazine Chouchou ALiis has included a summer exercise plan based on DMM and Nitroplus’ hit browser game Touken Ranbu (刀剣乱舞). The exercise plan involves a number of modified kendo practice moves, designed to melt fat and tone muscles just in time for bikini season.
To those unfamiliar with the game, Touken Ranbu lets players assume the role of “saniwa” who have the ability to turn historical Japanese swords into an army of handsome fighters. This is largely considered to be the female counterpart of DMM’s other popular game Kantai Collection (艦これ）, where mostly players take control of naval vessels in the form of little girls.
