For the sake of my faith in humanity, someone please tell me that this is some form of parody.

It's japanese. Honestly outside of the horse racing thing, it looks like your standard Idolmaster time management game.

And while I'm not a fan of the genre, horse racing video games have a long history in Japan. So it really sounds like a standard horse racing sim crossed with a time management sim crossed with Japan's obsession with cute teen girls. Three things Japan loves in its video games... upon consideration, more inevitable than anything else, really.

So I love how Bojack Horseman turned Secretariat into a track racer with a drug problem, but you know what it really needed? Big anime boobies.

What even the fuck, Japan.

[up]Dude, Japan's been doing stuff like this forever. When you see it once you've seen it a thousand times. It's nothing to get worked up over.

Surprising lack of that many ponytail hair styles. tongue

All things considered, it is fairly innocent idea IMO.

Well... depends on whether or not they get into what racehorses do when they retire.

I have nothing to add to this entire topic except that the song in the PV is actually the most head-poundingly anime thing I've ever heard. It's like it's precisely designed to be hit every trope and cliche for every moe-associated song ever, combined and concentrated into a single undulating mass. It is more anime than ought to exist in our reality. Anime cannot be this real.

That being said I'm sure the actual thing will be inoffensive... well, as inoffensive as any moe management sim can be. Sort of. Far too anime.

Japan, you have our attention. Make an anime out of this. NOW. Also, give us the game as well. There is a game, right?

@38 Now that you mention it, I guess this is Japan's answer to My Little Pony Friendship Is Magic: Equestria Girls.

Knowing Cygames, it'll have an anime tie-in somewhere down the line. This trailer is revealed at yesterday's Anime Japan, after all, alongside with another (very much proper) high fantasy series also sponsored by Cygames.

[up]I would think, due to being mostly human, they would go through the same things normal athletes would go through when injured. Probably no early retirement necessary.
