Lifts of the North Star is the ninth chapter of the manga Dumbbell Nan-Kilo Moteru?.



Satomi is cosplaying at the summer comiket; she is a well known cosplayer that goes under the name of Yuria Riko. Hibiki and Akemi are at that same event and notice Yuria Riko (but are unaware it's Satomi). With Satomi horrified by their appearance, she fears the worst when Hibiki calls out, but is relieved and surprised when she sees them meeting with Machio cosplaying as the "Muscle King", a character from the series "Lifts of the North Star". After pulling a massive crowd around him, Machio performs famous scenes from the manga to the crowd's joy (while Satomi is left utterly confused on who Machio is cosplaying as).

After the event finished, Satomi got dressed in regular clothes and left. On her way home she is spotted by the group and they ask her questions on why she was there, with Hibiki asking if she was there for the dōjinshi. Satomi sheepishly agrees (as she is more embarrassed about her real hobby than reading dōjins).
