The Japanizing Beam has finally turned racehorses into moe kemonomimi girls.
Uma Musume: Pretty Derby is a collaboration between P.A. Works and Cygames. The anime, which features real-world racehorse names, stars Special Week and her quest to become Japan’s top horse girl. Foot races, idol performances, and yuri subtext flow through the anime’s premiere.
Uma Musume: Pretty Derby has caught many fans off guard in the best possible way, with people sharing praise for the premiere on social media. Who knew a series about horse girls could bring the feels?

Imagine being pregnant in the Umamusume universe and having an ultrasound where the doctor tells you that the spirit of a dead race horse from another dimension has inhabited your unborn child and made it a horse-human hybrid

Uma Musume – this show is actually not bad surprisingly! The racing sequences are pretty intriguing, characters are fairly likable and if you want a slightly different twist on sports anime, I would say it’s worth at least checking out pic.twitter.com/TgLvVSEYiW
