This review is being written under the assumption that there are only going to be these 4 episodes as it concluded pretty well.

Afterschool Pleiades is a very simple mahou shoujo. There's no metaphors for today's society, blatant fanservice, over the top humor, nor any overlying themes. It just has magical girls and the power of friendship. For whatever length it had, Afterschool Pleiades didn't try to be anything more than your basic mahou shoujo.

Nice little 4 episodes,

7/10 Story is pretty simple, gather Engine Fragments in order to get the Pleiade (a little alien) back into outer space, there is also a "bad" guy trying to collect them.
9/10 Art is pretty good being that is being made by Gainax,
9/10 Sound of music was very nice, also good voice actors
8/10 Characters are pretty unique in their own way,
8/10 Very enjoyable for just 4 six minute episodes.

cannot wait for the movie this July

If you liked the star gazing concept in Houkago no Pleiades, it is done much better in Starry Sky.
They are both magical girl type animes, and they have the same voice actress voicing the main character.
