Fanfare of Adolescence is a horse-riding anime with three leading male characters with weird backgrounds. They sound a bit like quickly made PCs from tabletop RPGs.
One of the young riders is already a former rock star, an ex-idol, one grew up on a remote island, and the last is British, who has domineering parents controlling his life.
I think I understand the intended audience ehre.
Just to lay it on, our three heroes have been admitted to an elite jockey school, one that only accepts a few new students each year. These young men are elites.
Fanfare of Adolescence will air in Japan in April. The official synopsis readsl
