Uma Musume Pretty Derby is a popular iOS and Android game released in February 2021. The game was initially scheduled for release in Winter 2018, however it was postponed in order to improve the game’s quality. In March 2021, the game was made available on PC through DMM Games.
To mark the first anniversary of the game, Cygames’ Uma Musume Pretty Derby series released a brand-new animation on February 22, 2022, titled “1st Anniversary Special Animation.”
The clip was directed by Kei Oikawa, who worked at the second season’s anime production company Studio KAI on the two-season TV anime in 2018 and 2021. The second season of the TV anime continues with this piece. On May 4, 2022, a new season of the anime will begin streaming.
The first season of the TV anime aired in Japan for 13 episodes from April to June 2018, and the second season aired for another 13 episodes from January to March 2021.
In a world similar to our own, renowned racing horses of the past can be reincarnated as “horse girls”—girls with horse ears and tails, as well as horse speed and endurance. The greatest of these horse girls go on to train at Tokyo’s Tracen Academy, where they seek to achieve fame and money as racers and celebrities.
The first season follows Special Week, a high school horse girl from the countryside who has recently relocated to Tresen and is motivated to fulfil her mother’s vow to become the finest horse girl in Japan. She stops at the racing track on the way to school and, upon seeing Silence Suzuka, falls in love with her sense of style. She then resolves to race alongside Silence Suzuka.
The second season focuses on various side characters such as Mejiro Mcqueen, Rice Shower, and Mihono Bourbon, as well as Tokai Teio as the main character. She, like the horse on whom she is based, suffers from repeated injuries and battles to stay one of the top racers.
