The question remains: Will this show fulfill the desires and fantasies of those who love muscular women?

Any red blooded straight male would say that girls working out at a gym and having some muscle tone is hot.
As long as female body builder doesn't look like Mr. Olympia with boobs, then it's fine with me.

Well, being one of those non red blooded "straight males" that love seeing women look very "Mr Olympia", which has sadly, fallen out of the wayside. We don't see muscle women like that, nowadays.

Yes, I'm not ashamed to admit I love me some bulky female muscle, because hey, somebody has to.

Unless someone at Dogakobo flexes some muscle to override the character designs from the manga, then the simple answer is no.

The running joke is how the male trainer goes incredible hulk mode in an instant bursting his clothes more times than you have fingers in your body, to show an specific muscle group; but one of the girls does it only once WITHOUT showing any mass or muscle at all, only the clothes burst and that scene might be even beyond the one cour scope of this adaption.

My bet is that we might see more abs than in the manga (since they have become fashionable as of late thanks to AoT), but once again we will see girls pumping more weight than their slim body mass would allow.

On the topic of "Are they out there?" Though there are certainly older examples, female muscle fetish made a memorable impact on the contemporary mainstream conscious in 2016, with Kabaneri's Yukina: https://youtu.be/wlEqbOok5wI?t=288

Just look over the comments on this:

Top comment: "yea forget lolis I'm into this now."

Generally I like soft ([email protected] Kanako <3) but I can definitely go for this. Razz

And as for the show, I guess there may not be any... artwork... comparable to Wit's above linked, but as a fan of CGDCT, this should be fun as something rather substantially different from the norm.

If you want to think of history, the first example of muscle girls as protagonists in an anime IMO is WannaBees. As for recent examples, here is a nice compilation (I would have removed a pair because of their square faces, but you get the idea):

RIDICULOUSLY RIPPED GIRLS IN ANIME

Honorable mention to Michelle K. Davis from Terra formars, which sadly did not get this treatment on the anime, but this is an official picture of her:

Same could be said about Darkness from Konosuba:

p.s. Albeit her appearance was brief, the barbarian girl from the last episodes of Goblin Slayer can't be left out:

That's true, that'd be good.

Yup, that was a breakout moment that was everywhere.

I wonder if they'll hire Reika Saiki to promote it like she did with uzamaid.
