Warner Bros. Japan is looking to bring together two different releases in one new box set soon with the Houkago no Pleiades. The Japanese distributor is putting together the original ONA series and the TV series into a new Blu-ray box that’s scheduled to land on December 7th, 2016 priced at 26,800 yen. With that just a couple of days away, we have a look at the larger version of the front cover and the packaging as a whole. Is it enough to get you to import? The six-disc set will have the show across three Blu-ray discs with three CDs included, all of which are original soundtracks. The set will also come with a 128-page booklet with a new novel included. The clean opening and closing sequences are included as on-disc extras.
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!
