More horse girls will soon be galloping across the small screen, because a third season for the TV anime and a new spin-off web animation have been announced for Umamusume: Pretty Derby, the mixed media project by Cygames that re-imagines famous race horses as cute girls with a need for speed.



Details about each production are currently scarce, but it is known that Studio KAI will provide animation production for the third season of Umamusume: Pretty Derby, while Cygames Pictures will provide production for the new web anime, Umamusume: Pretty Derby Road to the Top.


Umamusume: Pretty Derby Road to the Top will be distributed on the official PAKA TUBE! YouTube Channel beginning in the spring season of 2023, and the story will focus on a different trio of main characters than the TV series: Narita Top Road, TM Opera O, and Admire Vega (pictured above).
