The first promotional video has been released for the upcoming Houkago no Pleiades (Wish Upon the Pleiades) TV anime. This video introduces the main characters and magical girls of the upcoming series and the first transformation sequence. The anime itself will be a continuation of the collaboration between Japanese car manufacturer Subaru and animation studio Gainax (Neon Genesis Evangelion, Medaka Box). It will feature the return of the cast from the Houkago no Pleiades web anime: Natsumi Takamori (Mei Misaki from Another) as Subaru, Ayuru Ohashi (Eila Ilmatar Juutilainen in Strike Witches) as Aoi, Kanako Tateno (Shirayuki-hime in Otogi-jushi Akazukin) as Itsuki, Yui Makino (Misaki Nakahara from Welcome to the NHK) as Hikaru, and Saki Fujita (Ao Nanami from Yozakura Quartet) as Nanako.
