Uma Musume Pretty Derby Season 2 English Dub Release

For those who like watching anime shows in English, the bad news is that Uma Musume: Pretty Derby does not have an English dub yet despite the show’s popularity among Western audiences. However, this does not rule out the possibility of an English dub being made in the future, especially if the show’s popularity increases in the West. For now, however, if you want to watch the show, you have to watch the original Japanese version with English subtitles.

Uma Musume Pretty Derby Season 2
Uma Musume Pretty Derby Anime

Uma Musume Pretty Derby is a multimedia franchise created by Cygames. The series has inspired a manga adaptation by S. Kosugi currently running on Cycomics website. An anime adaptation by Studio P.A. Works premiered in April 2018 which aired in 2018. A spin-off anime television series adaptation based on the spin-off by Jet Kuma Umayon aired from July 7 to September 22, 2020. An upcoming gacha mobile game for Android and IOS smartphones is scheduled to release on February 24, 2021.

The series takes place in a world very much like our own, great racehorses of the past have a chance to be reborn as “horse girls”—girls with the ears and tails of horses as well as their speed and endurance. The best of these horse girls go to train at Tokyo’s Tracen Academy, hopefully moving on to fame and fortune as both racers and idols.

Special Week, a high school horse girl from the countryside, has just transferred to Tracen, and she’s determined to fulfill her promise to her mother to become the best horse girl in Japan. On her way to school, she takes a pit stop at the race track and instantly falls in love with Silence Suzuka’s style, becoming determined to race on the same team as her.
