The entire series is about:

- Intense moments.
- Fast pace battles.
And a lot going on in general.

Mumei, the female MC is half Kabani, and he same is true for Ikoma in a manner of speaking (the male MC).
You’ll have plenty of scenes to get you going as you workout and exercise.
It’s made by WIT studios, same studio as AOT.
4. Soul Eater
Soul Eater s a sick
It’s about Miesters who wield weapons, and the demons they face off with. And the threat of “madness” that’s able to corrupt a person.
As an underrated and original Shonen series from the 2000’s, it has some of the greatest elements.
- Killer music.
- Action packed content.
- Solid characters + story.
- Engaging battles.
There’s no way you couldn’t workout and exercise to this

7. Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann
Gurren Lagann is one of the most motivational anime shows on the planet. It’s a high energy Mecha series and makes the genre “cool”.
Kamina is the man who makes this series shine, being the mentor for Simon, and the lover of Yoko.
After breaking out from underground and reaching the surface after so many years, they venture out and live life.
That leads to battles, some of the best comedy and art, and plot twists an
8. Black Lagoon
Black Lagoon is an
Revy Rebecca is another main character who steals the show with her twin pistols, giving her the nickname “two hands”.
Then you have Rock, a businessman who accidentally falls into the underworld with them. And Benny, a smart guy.
There’s enough action in almost every episode to get you going as you workout and exercise simultaneously.
Jormungand is similar to Black Lagoon, but very different. It’s about arms dealers who travel the world buying and selling weapons.
Koko Hekmatyar is a famous arms dealer who’s a millionaire, and has bodyguards everywhere she goes.
She has a teenage partner who’s an ex child soldier working for her. And it gets deep because of their backstories and how it ties into the plot.
The action is on another level, along with some of the best music of all time in an action series.

Once you go further and especially past the first half of the series, it only gets better. Giving you plenty of opportunities to workout and enjoy.

This is good for workout sessions and getting in some exercise.
14. Full Metal Panic
Full Metal Panic is a Mecha series with a character called Sousuke Sagara. He works for an independent anti-terrorist group.
His mission is to protect Kaname Chidori, and this ends up building their romance as the story progresses.
As expected with a Mecha/action series, especially with the military elements, there’s good music, scenes, and intensity that makes it workout worthy.
There’s 4 seasons in total, technically.
15. Fate Zero
Fate Zero is the best Fate series ever made. It’s technically the first but that’s a story for another day.
In this world of mages and servants, each team fights for the holy grail for the sake of having their personal wish granted.
In between there’s bloody battles, disgustingly savage episodes, characters, and depth that’s hard to not appreciate.
It deserves all the credit and so much more, especially for the unreal visuals and aesthetics.
