Animatsu has another release they’ve picked up that’s getting distribution in North America from Sentai Filmworks with Wish Upon the Pleiades. The distributor is looking at an October 17th, 2016 street date for the title that will be getting a DVD/BD combo pack release. Similar to the North American release, this will be subtitled only. Pricing has not been released for it yet.
Directed by Shouji Saeki with character designs by Mai Otsuka, The series stars Natsumi Takamori as Subaru, Ayuru Ōhashi as Aoi, Houko Kuwashima as Minato, Kanako Tateno as Itsuki, Saki Fujita as Nanako and Yui Makino as Hikaru.
Plot concept: When Subaru goes to her local observatory to prepare for an upcoming meteor shower, she ends up seeing far more of the stars than she expected.
Instead of a simulated viewing of astronomical phenomena, she gets recruited to take part in a fantastic adventure with a mysterious young man, a bizarre alien creature, and a group of girls dressed in cute, magical garb. Together with the other girls (who are suddenly and strangely members of Subaru’s school), Subaru becomes part of a clandestine effort to retrieve fragments of an alien spaceship! However, the fragments are being scattered all over the universe.
Time is limited, and the girls face a nemesis who is seeking to gather all the parts for himself! The space race is on, and the sky is no longer the limit as the legendary animation studio GAINAX sets Subaru’s eyes on the stars in WISH UPON THE PLEIADES!
