Uma Musume – Pretty Derby 2.10: Pain

With Teio’s racing career in jeopardy, was this really the end for her?

Special's plan to get Teio back

Even as a side-horse Special is fantastic.

Proud Twin TurboWay to go Twin Turbo! Rock on!

Teio riding a pandaAs depressing as it was seeing Teio hit rock bottom I couldn’t help but laugh at this moment.

Teio breaking Kita Black's heartThis hurt even more than Teio’s depression.

Nice Nature exercisingI miss the Dumbbell Girls.

Twin Turbo's a Teio fanI should have felt really bad for Teio. I obviously did but almost everyone else’s suffering hurt me more. Poor Turbo.

Special still cryingWhere’s Suzuka to give Special a hug when you need her? Damn you Murica for tempting her to seek strong competition.

McQueen setting it straight

We end the episode with the discussion Teio and McQueen would have to have at some point.

McQueen: No Matter what decision you make, I shall be the Top Horse, so why not come get some?

Teio: But what if I can’t match your speed ever again?

McQueen: Nothing is impossible for those who strive to achieve greatness.

Teio convinced to come backSo yeah. The episode was about Teio about to retire but everyone convincing her to give it one more chance. Good episode made great thanks to the side-horses.

    What a Fantastic Episode! I think this is my favorite episode of season 2!

    So much heartbreak this episode! I was very teary eyed!

    Oh Special you precious cinnamon bun. Never change.

    And Twin Turbo going Full Throttle in races and in my heart! I loved her when we met her and this episode has made me love her 1000x more then ever! She was Amazing and Awsome! Seeing her win both races had me Cheering! A very close 2nd Best Horse (by a decimal after this episode), with my Best Horse being obvious.

    Can’t wait for more!

    Seeing Teio hit rock bottom is hard, lots of sad moments here. The trainer lost on what to do to help, Teio rejecting the charm offered by her young fan…
    Although Twin Turbo shines this episode!
    Kudos also to the Canopus coach who came up with the plan. The ski masks were a hilarious touch. Rice Shower is still my best girl but maaan Twin Turbo really is great this time around.
    The encouragement of the audience was also so heartwarming.
    Another funny touch, around Trainer you can also see crying for happiness the hairdresser, her helmeted customer, the two male fans, and even that one guy with the gangster haircut….

    I hope Teio recovers. She’ such a positive cutie that she deserves to be happy and to run with her friends again. Twin Turbo is a darling heroine, and the two young horsies are always a delight.

    While it’s sad to see Teio decent to her lowest point, I have to admit that some moments are funny when she decides to have fun. Still, I can see why Kitasan Black and Twin Turbo are disappointed in Teio giving up without trying. Even so, I have to admit that it’s nice to see Twin Turbo not win only once, but twice.

    But yes, Sepcial is too precious… I kind of wish Suzuka was there.

    I learned today that to win a race you should run like a fugitive.
