Uma Musume Producer Wants to Make New Series

posted on by Jennifer Sherman

The Bunka Tsūshin website posted an interview with Jun'nosuke Ito, Toho Animation producer of the Uma Musume Pretty Derby anime, on Tuesday. In the interview, Ito responded to a question about whether or not the Uma Musume Pretty Derby anime could get a second season by saying, "If it gets popular, we feel like we'd want to return for a new series."

He added that they are waiting for the release of the game and "various other developments." He said that horse racing goes on every year, and he would like to make main characters for all the horses.

The television anime premiered on April 1. Crunchyroll is streaming the series as it airs in Japan.

Cygames' Uma Musume Pretty Derby 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.
