The latest target of this trend is real life current and former Derby horses. Uma Musume – Pretty Derby is an upcoming multi-media project between Cygames (Granblue Fantasy), P.A. Works (Sakura Quest), Lantis (Love Live!), and TOHO animation (Little Witch Academia TV producer).
P.A. Works will be animating the anime series, which follows Special Week and her friends as they attend Toresen Academy. The girls are training to becoming the fastest runners in Japan while attempting to become sports idols.
The Uma Musume – Pretty Derby anime and mobile game will launch in 2018. A manga drawn by S.Kosugi (Renai Otogibanashi -Champagne Carnival) is currently being published on Cygames’ Cycomi website.
