Synopsis

The sky is the limit in Houkago no Pleiades. With telescope in hand, Subaru is set to go to the observation room of her school in order to get a view of that night's meteor shower. What she least expects is that behind the observatory door was not the starry skies, but a lavish garden, complete with a resplendent fountain and a mysterious young boy with long red hair.

But the garden soon disappeared, as if Subaru was only imagining things. All that remains of that brilliant sight is an odd, bouncing blob creature that leads her to another magical door, occupied by other girls in magical witch-like costumes. Revelations start hitting Subaru one after the other: one of the girls in the room is her childhood friend Aoi, the little blob is actually an alien of a species called the Pleiadians trying to return home, and Subaru has been selected by him to become the newest member of their group!

Now Subaru's dreams of the stars have come true in the wildest way, as she and her friends attempt to gather pieces of the Pleiadian spacecraft engine to return the being to his home. But they're not the only ones after the engine parts, and they have no idea why!

Fuji Heavy Industries is a well known Japanese conglomerate company in which they produce everything from planes down to their most notable product, automobiles. Their Subaru brand has created quirky vehicles for more than 60 years and has seen record breaking success in the last decade. Thanks to catchy advertising that caters to former yuppies with growing families and a portfolio of safe and reliable vehicles such as the Forester, Outback, and Impreza they have broken internal sales records for more than half a decade. With such success, experiments are soon to follow. Houkago no Pleiades is the perfect example of this. It was a read more

Houkago no Pleiades is a great show if you're looking for a mahou shoujo with a slow start to a heart-clenching ending. It has some twists in character relevance that I didn't expect. It also has some interesting ties with modern physics, astronomy, and aerospace engineering that populate a large majority of the show. Think Interstellar but magical girls.

Coming from a collaboration with the car company Subaru, it really shocked me how good it was. I went in not expecting much and came out loving it.

There's not too much fanservice (barely any), the art pieces mid-episode are BEAUTIFUL, every character is lovable in their read more

"Physics don't apply to us when we're transformed!" -Hikaru

Preface:

Deep in the multiverse, a giant spaceship with stars flashes by, absorbing a black hole and growing to an unfathomably large size, larger than ten thousand galaxies are wide. Five figures shine brightly- as though they were a small constellation of pink, green, blue, purple, and yellow stars converging into a single point of light, and suddenly disappear. Beyond infinity, these five are searching for the last piece of potential- an abstract form of energy that allows for interworld, extragalactic, and interdimensional travel. A million, million worlds.

Nah, Gainax isn't making a sequel to Gurren Lagann, but read more

*Some spoilers may follow*

I went into this show with unrealistically high expectations, since I based them completely off of the mysterious key visual and the fact that I have yet to watch another magical girl anime that is true to its genre. (Kill La Kill doesn't count.)

It was only natural that I was disappointed by the first episode... and the next one... and the one after that. From a mostly flat protagonist whose dialogue mostly consists of "Huh?" and repeating things that other characters have just said to characters who get a single episode of development which is subsequently ignored, the show was almost a read more
