Galaxy Express 999's Maetel's Latest Journey is for 'The Ideal Body'

posted on by Lynzee Loveridge

Galaxy Express 999's Maetel previously collaborated with Bioré's summer products to get a tan, combat sweat, and otherwise party on the beach. In her newest campaign, the lithe character and an aged Tetsuro are teaming up with RIZAP to get what the campaign dubs as "the ideal body."

The campaign website shows Tetsuro as a middle-aged man who has developed a protruding belly from underneath his shirt while Maetel remains in the same form she has had since Leiji Matsumoto drew her in 1977. Tetsuro resolves to go on a journey to the RIZAP planet and obtain the "ideal body." The website has short conversations between Maetel and Tetsuro that reveal how his lifestyle has led to the change in his body's appearance, namely eating out and consuming a lot of ramen.

Maetel promotes RIZAP's "metabolic diagnosis" meter as a tool for getting in shape by managing nutrition and exercise. When the duo finally make it to the RIZAP planet, they encounter Edo and Takuro who transformed their bodies after only a few months. The site concludes with real-life testimonials.

Visitors that sign up for a free counseling application will be entered to win one of 100 RIZAP Maetel figures.
