Exciting news for all you Uma Musume Pretty Derby fans out there! Get ready to mark your calendars because the highly anticipated season 3 is galloping its way to screens on October 4th. This fantastic series, brought to life by Cygames, first trotted onto the scene in April 2018 and has been captivating audiences ever since.
But that’s not all – this franchise isn’t just confined to anime. It’s spread its wings (or should I say hooves?) into mobile games, manga, and more, all thanks to Cygames’ unwavering dedication. Season 3’s announcement is yet another testament to the company’s belief in the project’s potential to create a stir.
Now, hold your horses, as I’ve got some insider info for you about what to expect from this upcoming season. A fresh trailer has just hit the track, giving us a sneak peek into the world of Uma Musume. The spotlight is on Kitasan Black, one of the series’ main characters, as the trailer whisks us into the excitement that awaits.
Guess who’s making a triumphant return? The cast that stole our hearts in the previous seasons is back for an encore. And don’t think for a moment that the creative team behind the scenes has changed – director Kei Oikawa is back in the saddle to steer this ship.
Are you aware that thrilling delays have been added to the Zom 100 anime’s broadcast schedule? They just announced when you can watch your favorite episodes, but there are a few delays to be aware of:
Speaking of creative minds, Yousuke Kabashima is lending his talents as the character designer, while Satoru Fujimoto takes the reins as the chief animation director. Tetsuya Kobari and Shingo Nagai, the dynamic duo, are the masterminds behind the series’ composition.
Now, let’s talk about the premise. Imagine a world where girls embody the speed and strength of horses, leading to thrilling races that only they can partake in. Uma Musume Pretty Derby dives into this captivating concept, following a group of determined girls striving to make their mark in this unique industry. We get to witness their journey from their early days at Tokyo’s Tracen Academy, and boy, is it a ride!
But hold your horses (again!) – Uma Musume Pretty Derby wasn’t born as an anime. Back in 2018, it kicked off as a video game designed for iOS and Android. Yet, it didn’t stop there. It expanded into manga and anime, proving that its world was just too big to be contained.
Here’s a fun fact: the original series hit the tracks in April 2018, and even had a spinoff called Umayon in 2020, boasting 24 episodes of horsey excitement. And if that wasn’t enough, there was an ONA spinoff titled Umayuru by Scooter Films that aired in 2022, also with a total of 24 episodes. This title kept racing along until 2023, ensuring we were always on our toes.
Oh, and don’t forget the manga adaptations! They’ve woven various storylines and spinoffs, expanding the rich universe of Uma Musume Pretty Derby.
With all this history and anticipation, it’s no wonder fans are crossing their fingers for season 3 to be the crème de la crème of the franchise. So, saddle up and get ready, because October 4th is just around the corner, and Uma Musume Pretty Derby is ready to race into our hearts once more!
