Reading the manga. It’s cute, though not much is happening yet (sports-wise). So far, the translated chapters are largely just MC going around trying to get settled in, while making friends.

P.A Works cute girl shows have been disappointing other then exceptions. This'll probably land under the "trying to do too much and not do enough" category.

I don't expect anything amazing or anything but if I can say one thing though... there will be doujins out there, pretty sure of it.

But in all honesty I am actually looking forward to it since it looks pretty fun to watch.

Nice. I've been waiting to hear news on this for a while now. I had a lot of doubts as to how this would have turned out, but as far as production is concerned, I'm satisfied.

This looks just as visually great as I expected. I have to give PA Works the credit it deserves since they always come through with their character designs and background art. The cast picks also look pretty decent, with a couple notable picks here and there. And I do like how the opening theme sounds. So who knows, this could be a lot of fun.

Neat, you can call it horseshit and it will count both as a suitable description and a pun.

Well, the idea looks pretty funny and interesting, especially since I like horses. But comparing these settings with real horse-breeding, makes me laugh.

As an equestrian, I find this extremely disturbing.

Oh, it is the horse girls racing anime!
Remenber stumbling upon this before, wanna give it a shot just for the laughs.

As someone who trains horses... And owns real racehorses... I must say...

A man? if he's relevant for more than 5 min, the idiot that put him should be thrown in jail and possibly killed while they're at it.

Say what you want. But the Japanese have fantasy and dare try something new ;D would love see a western movie try a plot like this. haha

Horse girls doing horse things. Really weird but still, I'm in.

It's the only anime I'm looking forward to next season and I'm a little bit worried because I don't know who Azumi Waki or Machico are, hopefully they are good enough to carry main roles.

I know Machiko from SukaSuka, and she was pretty good as Ithea, Azumi Waki is really good too, i loved her Galko and Maika.

Then that's good news to me, thanks.

- Horse girl without rider
This is not the monster girl i want ( still watch tho )

This is the type of show that I would never even take an interest in if it wasn't made by PA Works.

I don't want to have high hopes but I feel like it might end up being better than people expect (considering that they expect very little that is)

A sports girl track anime? I'm in? or not
