Umamusume: Pretty Derby Reveals New Anime Plans


A new anime project is officially in the works for the Umamusume: Pretty Derby mixed media project, which has Cygames, Inc. reimagining real life race horses as singing and dancing anime girls. There aren’t many details to go on at the moment, but the teaser visual above and teaser trailer below have been unveiled for the upcoming work.

The only other thing we know is that this one will focus on a different trio of horse girls, including Narita Top Road, TM Opera O, and Admire Vega. Check out the teaser while we wait for more info. 

The first two seasons of the Umamusume: Pretty Derby anime are currently available to stream on Crunchyroll, which sums up the story like so:

This is a tale of a world where “horse girls”; with glorious names and incredible running abilities live alongside humanity. Horse girl Special Week has moved from the country to the city to attend Tracen Academy. There, she and her classmates compete to win the Twinkle Series and earn the title of “The County’s #1 Horse Girl.”
