Rika Kinugawa Takes Over as Narita Brian in Umamusume: Pretty Derby TV Anime

Horse girls Narita Brian and Hishi Amazon entertain a group of young children at a school cultural fair in a scene from the 2018 Umamusume: Pretty Derby TV anime.


Some quick news for all you horse girl enthusiasts out there: there’s been a cast change for the upcoming second season of Umamusume: Pretty Derby, with voice actor Rika Kinugawa replacing the previous VA, Yuka Aisaka, in the role of Narita Brian (pictured on the left, above). Sources cite Yuka Aisaka’s 2018 departure from voice acting and similar activities as the reason for the role being re-cast.



The second season of Umamusume: Pretty Derby is scheduled to broadcast in Japan in 2021. Crunchyroll currently streams the first season of the show and describes the story as follows:


This is a tale of a world where “horse girls”; with glorious names and incredible running abilities live alongside humanity. Horse girl Special Week has moved from the country to the city to attend Tracen Academy. There, she and her classmates compete to win the Twinkle Series and earn the title of “The County’s #1 Horse Girl.”
