Because no one ever said saving the world would be easy. Get ready to slay every witch and soldier of Darkness that stands in your way… and look fabulous while you do it, too!

After getting such awesome feedback from my Sports Anime Workout Routine, I decided to make another one - this time, inspired by the kickass magical girls of the anime world!

Just like before, you don’t need ANY equipment for this routine! No gym membership required - you don’t even have to leave your room or put on real-people pants. (Bless.) If you’re more advanced and want to bump it up a little, add some 5-15 lb. weights on some of the moves, but otherwise, all you need is your body!

Here’s how it works: Queue up all of these songs, whether it’s in iTunes, YouTube, SoundCloud, or another music player of your choice. Hit “Play.” Your goal is to get through all of the designated exercises before the song is over. If you don’t make it, replay the song until you’re done! Then move on to the next one. Try to rest as little as possible between each exercise (and each song!) for the best results.

If you’re struggling and want to give up, keep pushing. It’s when you want to quit that the magic starts to happen. Believe in yourself and your own abilities. True power comes from within, after all!

PLAYLIST

Cardio: Sailor Moon Crystal - "Moon Pride"
Arms: Puella Magi Madoka Magica - "Connect"
Legs: Princess Tutu - "Hall Om Mig"
Core: Card Captor Sakura - "Platinum"

As always, if you still (somehow) have energy left after all of that, burn it out in the bonus cardio round:

Cardio Burnout: Revolutionary Girl Utena - "Rinbu -Revolution-" (Updated 03.01.15)

The Cult “Rise” from Beyond Good and Evil (2001)

“It’s the way that you feel,

it’s the truth in your eyes,

you’ve got wings upon your back and you can fly.

It’s the way that you feel,

it’s the truth in your eyes, 

‘cause you’re up against the world and still you rise”

Absolutely one of my favorite songs to run to.

  • Xiumin: Okay, for the next exercise we're going to mix other exercises, use song lyrics to describe your relationship with the person beside you.
  • Sehun to Chanyeol: Keep making me laugh, let’s go get high
  • Xiumin: Yes, progress so much progress. Baekhyun, you next.
  • Baekhyun to Yixing: Donkey Kong on that mmm till sundown.
  • Xiumin: Okay, So... yeah, this meeting is over.

Mass Effect: Andromeda 30 Day Countdown Ryder Meme (Day 30)

1 Day: Which song/songs would be “theme songs” for Ryder? Are there any symbols you associate with Ryder? If you’ve created a moodboard for them, share it here. If not, what sorts of things would be on their moodboard? Describe their aesthetic. What Hogwarts house would they be sorted into? If you’ve written fanfic involving Ryder already, share it here. [you don’t need to do all of these, they’re merely intended as creative exercises]


Songs:

Fireflies - Owl City

To ten million fireflies
I’m weird ‘cause I hate goodbyes
I got misty eyes as they said farewell…

Dreams Don’t Turn To Dust - Owl City

I made for the countryside
And my eyes never grew so wide
Apple raspberry river blue
I don’t wanna leave without you
In the sound I gladly drowned
Into the emerald underground
I rub my eyes 'cause it’s hard to see
Surrounded by all this beauty

Favorite Record - Fall Out Boy 

You were the song stuck in my head
Every song that I’ve ever loved
Played again and again and again
And you can get what you want but it’s never enough
And I spin for you like your favorite records used to

Human - Rag’N’Bone Man (CALL THIS ONE CHEATING ALL YOU WANT, IT JUST- FITS DANGIT HDJSAHJKDS)

Some people got the real problems
Some people out of luck
Some people think I can solve them
Lord heavens above
I’m only human after all


Moodboard & Ascetic:

Filled with pictures of trees and nature, probably a lot of cherry blossoms, since pink is his absolute FAVORITE color, and that’d mix with his love of nature, lots of pictures of decorative foods, and also, pink, purple, and teal colored glitter, and slimy Stimboard gifsets.

Overall bright, pastel colors all around.


Hogwarts house:

A chill, loyal as all hell Hufflepuff~

Noooot even a contest gdsjkhdsa XP

1 Day to Mass Effect Andromeda

So I am going on Vacation and I will be without stable wifi. Because of that, I’m doing the last three days of mass effect andromeda meme now, and I’ll see you all at the Andromeda release!

1 Day: Which song/songs would be “theme songs” for Ryder? Are there any symbols you associate with Ryder? If you’ve created a moodboard for them, share it here.

Sara’s theme song: Chances - Five for Fighting (I love this song for Sara so much. It fits her so well, a song about logically nothing lasts but i’m going to hope and work for it anyway. “Don’t get me wrong, I never say never” is SO SARA.)

Symbols: A Rose. I know that’s pretty cliche’ but it’s true, she’s a Rose. Soft petals, with thorns that can kill. 

Aesthetic: Definitely the stars, sweeping landscapes. Pages of codes, tea on the windowsill. Gears and gadgets strewn, an organized chaos. A long flowing dress, high heeled shoes, smiles and laughter, ice skates, dance and movement.

Hogwarts house: Ravenclaw. No question.

I have written some fics with Sara in them!

See you on the Flip Side - Sara/Kallo

Kallo’s Guide to Calming a Pathfinder - Sara/Kallo

Paper Mache Airplanes - Pre-initiative fic

Colors - This is not a fic, but it is a description of Sara and Scott in color form that i’m quite proud of.
