The official website for the anime part of Cygames' Uma Musume Pretty Derby project revealed the anime's first visual and main staff on Saturday. The text on the below visual reads: "Dear mom. I'm going to become Japan's best horse girl!"

Kei Oikawa (This Art Club Has a Problem!, Outbreak Company, My Teen Romantic Comedy SNAFU TOO!) is directing the anime at P.A. Works. Yousuke Kabashima (D.Gray-man Hallow, Lord Marksman and Vanadis) is the character designer and chief animation director. Masafumi Sugiura (aka Pierre Sugiura, Touken Ranbu: Hanamaru scripts) and Cygames' Akihiro Ishihara are both writing and overseeing the series scripts.

The anime will air in 2018.

While Cygames hasn't yet announced the cast for the anime, the video game version of the project currently has 59 cast members:

The game is currently in development, with a planned release on iOS and Android in 2018. 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." Players take the role of both teacher and trainer for the girls in the Nihon Uma Musume Training Center Gakuen (Japan Horse Girls Training Center Academy) and help them make their debut.

A manga, titled STARTING GATE! -Uma Musume Pretty Derby-, already launched on Cygames' Cycomi manga website in March. S.Koisugi is drawing the manga.
