"Elf can't [go] on a diet."), is a Japanese manga series written and illustrated by Synecdoche about an elf girl trying to lose weight. It was originally serialized on Wani Books' Comic Gum website from December 2016 to May 2021, later serialized in Akita Shoten's monthly seinen magazine, Dokodemo Young Champion, since October 2021, and its individual chapters have been collected into seven tankōbon volumes.

Character List
Muscle Moment Total
Kuroeda (黒枝) is a dark elf who works at a convenience store with her one golem managing inventory. Naturally, as a dark elf, she doesn't get along with regular elves like Erufuda
Melo (米路, Mero) is A mermaid who works at a fish shop. She can maintain a human form by using secret medicine. She suffers from sagging arms due to not being able to swim due to her busy work schedule

Oga (男鹿) is an ogre who becomes fat by excessive drinking in the human world.

Oeda is Erufuda's aunt, sent to the human world to retrieve her. While she has appeared in earlier chapters prior to this one, her musculature didn't really become apparent until that point.

Appointment 2: Dark Elf

Having trouble with her magic as her butt has become too big for her power-boosting clothing, Kuroeda seeks Naoe Tomoatsu's advice when he comes to her convenience store one night. Giving her a massage on her calves, it did wonders as her legs feel lighter. As Naoe gives his advice on how to slim down her butt, Kuroeda asks if she will become an ogre by doing this, to which he's not sure. She asks this as she temporarily bulks up.

Appointment 3: Green Scales[edit | edit source]

Naoe and Erufuda were visiting a fish market to expand her eating habits beyond french fries. There, they meet Mero, where on hearing Erufuda's snide remark on her sagging arms, she laments how they became this way because she hasn't been swimming much since she came to the surface and ate a lot of fish in that time. Naoe points out that this sagging is a result of muscular atrophy in the arms, and she could prevent this by training her biceps and triceps. He also mentions that if she works them out too much, the muscle and fat in her muscles would only make the arms bigger, in which we see an image of Mero in her mermaid form with a heavily-built upper body.

Auntie came from the other world to shape up Erufuda so she can return home, and to do that, she puts her through intense training and makes her eat extremely small portions. However, she comes to the conclusion that Naoe may be the cause of her new lifestyle...
