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.

Story 6/10.
The story is simple mahou shoujo stuff. A girl one day unexpectedly receives magical powers and uses them to collect fragments of a magical device. In this case, remembering the Subaru read more

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

I have never seen a Gainax production that I didn't like... There is a first time for everything.

The characters and plot are shallow, generic, and uninteresting. The pacing is absolutely horrid. The art style is decent, until your retinas are bombarded with bright pink mahou shoujo nonsense, which makes you wish you were never born. I personally wanted to gouge out my eyeballs with a screwdriver.

Besides for the usage of the Pleiades's constellation as seen on Subaru's logo, this show has absolutely nothing to do with Subaru or cars at all. The closest you will get is the horribly out of place engine sounds which read more

Lets break this odd team up down:


The Story:A very standard story that offers nothing interesting, which is sad, I've seen shows with less time than this offer a unique story.It's a basic collect the maguffins plot that were dropped in to near the end. Never really established what they do asides from being a source of power for both sides That being said it's not horrible just poor . I'll get to characters farther down.



Art:This is where the show shines, the art is very nice looking and the character design is nice if again stranded .Though as a minor nitpick the girls themselves read more
