In a world very much like our own, great race horses of the past have a chance to be reborn as "horse girls"—girls with the ears and tails of horses as well as their speed and endurance. The best of these horse girls go to train at Tokyo's Tracen Academy, hopefully moving on to fame and fortune as both racers and idols.

Special Week, a high school horse girl from the countryside, has just transferred to Tracen, and she's determined to fulfill her promise to her mother to become the best horse girl in Japan. On her way to school, she takes a pit stop at the race track and instantly falls in love with Silence Suzuka's style, becoming determined to race on the same team as her.

I see no one has done a review, and I've never actually done one, but I wanted to take the opportunity to let you know what you're getting into if you are looking at the cover art and title and wondering...

Horse Girls: Obviously, from the cover art and title.

Fan Service: Not really. Through 4 episodes this show has taken the high road and chosen to avoid too many opportunities to pander to that demographic. So for those hoping to see Horse Girls in often compromising situations, I feel this show will disappoint you. Episode 1 is your one fleeting glimpse of anything approaching it.

Uma Musume: Pretty Derby, in a nutshell, is the season's CDGCT Sports-esque focus.
Based on the mobile game from Cygames (that's NOT even out yet), this anime adaptation seems to me like it's more of the overall PV before the game actually releases sometime later this year (probably after the show ends).

So, with the earliest of earliest reviews of Spring 2018, let's get this going.

With Uma Musume, expect cute girls of names (of which there ARE A TON of them, based off famous racehorse names which I'm not gonna divulge here), and with the stylized overview of that, don't expect Monster Musume levels of fanservice. That's read more

Uma Musume, a story of a Horse-girl who wants to become the best Horse Girl in Japan. At first glance at Uma Musume, I don't really think it'll appeal that much, I was like "It's all about just competitions right? Will this be another cliche one?", Fortunately I was wrong, the first episode did a great job introducing new characters and it's goal. You might think that this competition anime will just be a cliche but you're quite wrong, Uma Musume is trying it's best to be as unique as it can, If you want racing and girls all around your screen with proper plot, read more
