Uma Musume: Pretty Derby
Alias: Episode Count: Premiere Date: Apr 2, 2018 to ? Studios: P.A. Works Source: Game Genres: Sports, Streaming: Crunchyroll,
Plot: The game's concept begins with Uma Musume (Horse Girls), girls endowed with excellent running capability, and who aim to become top idols and compete in the national sports entertainment show "Twinkle Series."
One of the girls with the student council president? (forgot her name) help teach the girls dance through karaoke. She somehow ended up joining Spica. Special Week won 3 races but lost her fourth race. First time she lost and it's a good character development. She will get better.
Not much to comment on pros and cons
Idol outfits doesn't seem to hamper their running.
I would say the character spotlight was Shizuka but there wasn't much to featured about her. Unless I made a mistake. I sort of pay attention. I don't remember a backstory of hers. She did had a crying scene after her victory. Out of the horse girls, she has the most stamina.
Hit or miss episode for me. I found it oddly convenient that the best Horse girl, Shizuka, who declare her dream to race in America has now been hospitalized for a fracture knee. She hasn't overwork herself. There was no hints, just loose shoe straps. The main heroine's dream is to be the best in Japan. Bringing her role model, teammate, and rival down this way feels cheap.
I lost track of how many times Special Week has lost. Only 2 races were fully shown while the rest were mentioned or cut off to shown results. Special Week lost this time because she was distracted with racing with Shizuka, Shizuka wasn't in the crowd, watching her as she had to take a break. Grass Wonder gave it her all to beat Special Week who was distracted.
I do wonder where the focus is now. Feels like the story is meandering a bit.
I don't have much to say about Uma Musume. It's a decent show. It's not boring nor exciting. I enjoyed the girls and their crazy trainer who might get into jail because he keeps grabbing horse girls' thighs
Odd Thing: I think none of the horse girls have human ears. They have horse ears. I look at every one of them and either hair or some headphones for Gold Ship to cover what ears they could possibly had.
The official website for the anime portion of Cygames' Uma Musume Pretty Derby project began streaming a preview video for "BNW no Chikai" (BNW's Oath), the new anime that will be bundled with the Uma Musume Pretty Derby television anime's fourth Blu-ray Disc volume, on Sunday
The new anime will have the same length as three episodes, and will center on Narita Taishin (voiced by Keiko Watanabe), Winning Ticket (Yui Watanabe), and Biwa Hayahide (Yui Kondou).
The November 14 release will also include an original prose story titled "Uma Hanashi" (Horse Talk) with a plot that was not portrayed in the television anime.
Old Man Dream: ...later titles in the Macross franchise can finally come stateside with all involved parties finally coming to a truce over how to handle things with the Macross trademark and all later anime in the franchise associated with it.

Taka: I see. A global release will benefit it. Gundam did pretty good. The only few franchises that are only popular in Japan but not popular in the west - Yokai Watch comes to mind.

Master Menos: F for Respects. DMX did all his work while suffering from a drug addiction, and I almost never knew until a point. I hope his next life treats him far better.
