What We Can Expect
This anime is a prime example of what we can expect in the future from Japanese Anime. Here we have an anime where girls are seen running like horses. Furthermore, all this is professionally organized and the girls are trained and coached just as professional athletes would be. Maybe, the unorthodox nature of the plot will convince some viewers to watch this anime. Also, in a way, this is a kind of sports anime and we can expect the regular inspirational stuff that is common in such anime. I am not sure how fun it is going to be to watch girls running and people placing bets on them. Well, since hybrid humans are involved we can hope for some surprises.
Do share in the comments if you are going to watch this anime or not.
