The Plot Of Kinnikuman (Muscleman, Muscleman)
While most of us already remember the beloved meat-eating wrestler Kinnikuman, here is a minor synopsis to remind you of his story.
Kid Muscle isn’t someone you would consider a hero at anything. He’s incredibly lazy and cowardly, and he would rather eat chips and snacks instead of doing training. However, when evil from the other world strikes, the blood of a warrior runs through his veins, and his instincts take over. He continues to fight stronger opponents to grow strong and earn the respect of his family.
