News 2nd Isshoni Anime to Be Isshoni Sleeping with Hinako
posted on 2010-01-01 11:24 EST
Not-So-Daily Link of the Day: The official website has launched for Isshoni Sleeping: Sleeping with Hinako, the revamped sequel to last year's Isshoni Training: Training with Hinako exercise anime DVD. Instead of an exercise video, the February 11 Blu-ray and DVD release is billed as a "pleasant sleeping and alarm clock" anime.
The anime shows footage of Hinako, a 16-year-old girl who was transformed into an anime character, as she sleeps and wakes up. From the Blu-ray or DVD's menu, the user can select a number of options such as Hinako's sleeping posture and events such as dreams. The anime is nominally intended to help the user modify his or her sleeping habits. The user can even set an alarm bell to wake up when Hinako "wakes" up as well.
In Isshoni Training: Training with Hinako, Hinako leads exercises in push-ups, sit-ups, and squats. The production company Primastea is bringing back Hinako for the new anime. The February sequel was first revealed in October by the online retailer Amazon in the book description for Motto Isshoni Training Hinako no Hon (More Training with Hinako Book). Amazon's description has since been edited to remove any word about the sequel until this week's website launch.
