Need the inspiration to conquer a killer workout? Watch these anime series, and you’ll no longer be a rusty torque wrench! Handymen need to be fit too, you know.
Hajime no Ippo
This Japanese boxing anime is an inspiration to anyone, not just to handyman and aspiring boxers. Ippo, the main character, is trying to learn how to be strong. But first, he must find out what it means to be strong. What’s the real definition of strength anyway? In this anime, he begins as a coward trying to make himself physically and mentally strong through intense workouts, perseverance, and passion. I won’t spoil the anime for you, but I will at least tell you this: It has a happy ending. This action-packed anime is a must-watch. You’ll learn a lot from Ippo’s hard work and determination. It’s one inspiring series you shouldn’t miss.
All sports anime has some training attached to it. But this one is the best among the rest when it comes to encouraging handymen and others to stay healthy. It tells the story of a talented Goro and his life with baseball. It documents his development as a young athlete to a veteran player. Major focuses on how Goro trains hard to improve his skills, especially as a pitcher. After all, the major league doesn’t just need a talented player, just as the world doesn’t need a talented handyman only; it requires a skilled one. Major is an inspiring anime that will make you push yourself towards your health goal. It teaches about the importance of never giving up even if the whole world’s turning against you. You don’t have to play baseball to understand the lesson of the anime. In fact, you may even learn to like the sport because of Major. Just like Ippo, Goro’s story ended happily. I have to warn you, though: The anime could be a bit emotional, so prepare some tissue.
One Punch Man
The last one on the list tells the story of Saitama, a superhero in Z-City, who has trained himself to be ridiculously strong that he can defeat any opponent with a single punch (hence, the name). He struggles to find a worthy opponent he won’t effortlessly beat.
This anime will make you laugh while inspiring you to stay healthy as well. After all, a handyman who isn’t fit can’t perform his job correctly. You wouldn’t want to miss a chance to work too, especially if you’re a beginner. Obviously, you’ll need to work out and stay healthy if you wish to keep your job. You may not be able to defeat evil forces with a single punch, but if you’re fit, you can finish your tasks quickly and without much effort.
