A collaborative effort between the Japanese automaker and Japanese anime company Studio 4°C, PES: Peace Eco Smile is a new web promotional anime series that centers around PES, a traveller from space, and NaSuBi, a mysterious life-form who is enamored by the charm of Earth. The car of choice for these strangers in a new world? The Prius, particularly the Prius Liftback and Prius C hatchback. These two hybrids seem to be as much a part of this series as the two main characters are. A Lexus LFA (likely the ride of the antagonist) and the Toyota Camry hybrid also have a role to play.

Each anime short in the campaign will be three to four minutes long and will be posted on Toyota's specially-dedicated website.

"PES: Peace Eco Smile" is a Sci-Fi/Love Story created to sell the Toyota brand.

The animation is very good, some of the designs and events are quite imaginative.
The character designs remind me of Kino no Tabi, they are very good as well.

The music is well implemented, and the some of the songs are catchy.
The Seiyuu are good. And the SFX fit the series.

I assume that this is a children's series, or at least I hope so. That would go against their advertising though, why would a 8 year old want to buy a Toyota vehicle?

To be completely honest, there is no reason to watch this anime if not for the incredible visuals.

Each episode is a few minutes long and aside from the nice drawing style there's only few that keeps your attention. It's a poorly made excuse for a toyota commercial that at first still tries to teach driving lessons at the end of each episode and a bit of slice of life enjoyment in each episode. But from "useful driving lessons" they slowly start to hover over to even more toyota advertising by listing the advantages by driving exclusively toyota cars instead of actually useful driving tips.

While I will agree the art and sound were great the rest pretty much sucked. It did feel like a giant commercial with no attempt to actually make it anything like a show or even a short series thing.

Again as others have said I will agree it's cool they are trying to highlight safety which is a noble cause, but it doesn't work very well when you just say it. It's sorta like when you hear to look both ways when crossing a road and only when you are almost hit by a car you watch it like a hawk before you cross.

Anime: Next A-Class
Short sci-fi animes that advertise cars. One advertise it with safety rides and another one with speed and performances.

Anime: Ai Mai! Moe Can Change!
Both of these Anime revolve around product placement. PES is about Toyota's cars while the other is about a mobile phone application that is available over in Japan.

Anime: Houkago no Pleiades
Both of these Anime are episodic Anime advertisements for car companies. They also both use very bright colors.
