Wish Upon the Pleiades, a Gainax original based on their 2011 web animation, follows Subaru, a young girl who learns her best friend Aoi is a member of an after-school club that are searching for fragments of a spaceship engine to help an alien known as a Pleiadian return home.
First episode in, I suppose it wasn’t too bad. I don’t really understand what is happening that much, but I liked it somewhat better than all the other shows I’m watching that started in this season so far, and even that isn’t saying much considering everything I’ve watched this season let me down. If you ask me, Pleiades is probably the only minuscule step to being something that’s at least worthwhile in a season that’s starting out very sour. Hey, at least Pleiades has magic broomsticks that make motorcycle sounds.
