In Japan, betting on horse racing is one of the few legal forms of gambling; thus, the public races have become an interesting part of Japanese culture. In this sport, an individual who rides a horse and competes in races is called a jockey—that is just what Yuu Arimura aspires to be.

Becoming inspired after witnessing a derby, 15-year-old idol Yuu shocks the entire nation when he leaves the entertainment industry to enroll in a prestigious horse racing school. Excited to pursue his latest passion, he gradually bonds with his new classmates—such as the talented Shun Kazanami and the self-assured Amane Grace—who are each unique in their own way. Although the path ahead may be full of obstacles, Yuu is determined to pursue his ultimate goal of becoming one with his horse.

As a fan of horses, and horse racing, I was extremely happy to see they finally made a real horse racing anime that wasn't Uma Musume pretty derby. This anime has decent visuals and a Sawano OST, but unfortunately due to one scene in Episode 1 with semi BL vibes a ton of homophobes ended up dropping the series, not realizing that (1) most sport anime are "fruity", consider the Top Gun volleyball scene and (2) this is definitely NOT a BL anime.

Mixed Feelings
this is the first anime i watch that surrounds about horse racing and the characters training to be a jockey. i think it is somewhat an enjoyable anime but i think it could have been better if it has been expanded and developed further.

like for example, it feels very fast-paced with the one year later, six months later etc. you totally don't know what has happen in between to reach that part. also, there isn't much about the each and every character's background to understand why they want to be a jockey.

overall, i think it would be better if it had focus more on their ...

We had our fair share of horses in anime, the most prominent being` the likes of Cygames's popular franchise that is Uma Musume: Pretty Derby that features anthropomorphic girls with legendary names taken straight out of Japanese horse derby races for spokes-animals. But ask someone what would he/she do in a horse race, and the first instinct is to deal some horse betting for the most popular horse that would score you wins or losses, and also the journey of horse jockeying which takes into accounts of its intense practices and potential dangers, which is what Gunjou no Fanfare a.k.a Fanfare of Adolescence attempts to ...
