    Umamusume: Pretty Derby 10/10
    Okay, so I not sure how to do these reviews so here my shot: Anime Horse Girls at first I was questionable about the characters and I was thinking if I should watch this. After a few hours I decided to give it a shot, and I'm just going to say this is a REALLY GOOD ANIME... you must watch this at once... I love anime series where the protagonist starts with nothing and then achieves its goals and ...

    Quirky and Adorable!
    I love horses. I love anime. No surprise I like this!

    The series seems to have fun with itself, like the writers acknowledge that the premise is a little off the wall, but they're having fun with it. It's only two episodes in and it's already been funny and very sweet.

    It's a kind of odd to some, i'm sure, but it's good!

    Just... mind the creepy intro to Trainer. ...

    Proof That Mobile Game Adaptations Can Work
    Mobile game adaptations have their own set of problems. Among these are the enormous cast of characters involved. Every problem is an opportunity for creativity, though. This team seems to have an abundance of that.

    It's actually pretty easy to tell these characters apart, and you can often tell a little something about a character just from the way they look. This is certainly helpful ...

    My Little HorseGirl : Racing is funny
    Well what do we have here ?

    An anime in a parallel universe where horsegirls coexists with normal humans in the middle of an advanced society set in current Japan.
    Hmmm ... add to queue ? I guess

    Seriously though, I watched the 2 first episodes and it looks interesting, not promising at all but still kept me going and I kind of want to watch more.

    We've got an interesting MC (even ...

    This is honestly so cute
    Honestly, I went into this anime thinking it was gonna be terrible, but it was actually a lot better than expected? The characters are very likable and as a girl, I didn't really feel uncomfortable watching (except for that scene with the trainer being a creep but he gets kicked in the face and it never happens again so...)

    And the whole idol thing ended up being really cute too. I also like ...

    This show has the magic
    I just can't stop watching this show. It is just your average slice of life high school simulator with idol singing and characters that all look very similar. But for some reason, I want to see what they will do next. This anime is in collaboration with an upcoming smart phone game being created by people who worked on [email protected] cinderella girls. It has a very similar magical feel. It also ...

    Pretty Derby is Pretty Fun!
    An Adorable Track & Field Anime finally bringing the Horse Girl craze to Japan!

    If you ever wondered what would happen if Equestria Girls fused with a Sports/Running movie and an Idol Anime well here you go!

    So get your horse shoes on and get ready to run!

    A promising beginning
    So there’s only been two episodes for review. Those two were very enjoyable. This is a well balanced anime consisting of character development, friendships and sports rivalry. Sure they are women who are also part horse but it’s entertaining. Further, this is not as ecchi as I had anticipated. The first two shows had a little but it was very comically and not over the top. This could be for ...

    Horses taught me how to love again
    While at first glance this may seem like another suspect "a bunch of cute girls appealing to a specific otaku fetish do cute things and it's a huge waste of time" anime, it's so much more than that. Umamusume is inspiring. Life changing. And feeds you an exhilarating experience comparable to a good sports anime. Except instead of dudes playing some kind of sport you may or may not care about, it's ...

    My favorite one for this season
    Been watching this one from the beginning and it is by far the best one of all the anime I am watching this season. I look forward to and enjoy everyone. Its sure is a great change of pace from all the typical anime out there. Of course some episodes are better than others, I enjoy the actual horse racing parts the most. I think they have a good feel for what they wanted to express in this anime.
