posted on by Egan Loo
The online retailer Getchu.com is reporting that Primastea's Isshoni Training 026: Bathtime with Hinako & Hiyoko ("026" is pronounced "Ofuro" or "bath") anime will ship on DVD on December 24. As previously revealed, this will be the third Isshoni animation after the original Isshoni Training and Isshoni Sleeping. The premise of the new anime is to teach exercises while bathing and stretching after getting out of the bath.
Shinichiro Kimura (Burn Up Excess, Charger Girl Ju-den Chan, Maburaho) is directing the new anime. As the title indicates, a new heroine named Hiyoko will join Hinako, the heroine of the previous two Isshoni anime. The product description suggests using a waterproof player. A separate DVD+microSD edition will include a microSD card which can be played on mobile phones that support the Japanese 1seg standard.
