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.

Sometimes I just really fucking love Japan. This time is that time. Welcome to Uma Musume, show about horse-girls.

Ever since the masterpiece of sports anime, Keijo, ended, I have been eagerly waiting for another series that treasures the beauty of sportic anime ladies. This time they have animals ears, tails and are so goddamn happy all the time. It's great.

The characters are the selling point of this anime. Special Week (yes, that's an actual name of the main character) is super positive and energetic. It's almost as if there is no reining day in her life.(heh, pun). Unless someone sexually abuses her legs. Make read more

Each season PA Works delivers an enjoyable series, this time Uma Musume: Pretty Derby. The anime deepen values such us the need to improve no matter the adversity and the friendship. It is great seeing they did not resort to the fanservice or the boring and the repetitive plot ideas of the average sports series. The simple story carries a diverse set of characters and exploits their various personalities. Furthermore, the idea of moving forward keep us the viewer entertain until the end of the series.

The main story is about horse-girls and their struggle to be the best. They suffer, cry, smile, joke, they are read more

Uma Musume tells a story of horse girl idols, attending horse girls' school, participating in races and giving concerts afterwards. Just how abstract does this concept sound? As weird as it might seem, Uma Musume is an outstanding show that exceeded my expectations.

Let's start with characters, which to me play the most important role in this case. All the horse girls are based on real race horses and their designs are all connected to their real life equivalents. I love the character designs - they are all so detailed and the connection to the actual horses makes them even more interesting. All girls are unique, read more

A fiery horse (girl) with the speed of light, a cloud of dust and a hearty HIYO SILVER!!!!Now that this anime has been competed , I can say for sure that it was good, since it isn't always that the cast who portrays around here were a bunch of horse girls, who were competing to be on top in some overly rated track and field, now that polt maybe the usual main character who enters such competition to make it to the top, It now alway something new was added in what can be say as the usual girls with cat ears, dog ears and read more
