English Subtitled “Pleiades” on Youtube

Posted on: February 7, 2011

Car company Subaru’s collaboration with anime production company Gainax was released on Youtube earlier this month, and now they have released an English-subtitled version. They made the announcement via their official Twitter account this morning.

When you think of magical girls, you think car companies, right?

“Houkago no Pleiades” (Afterschool Pleiades) has become “Wish Upon the Pleiades”. There are 4 episodes, each labelled “nights”, and the total run time is a shade less than 24 minutes. Links to the episodes are included after the break.

First Night

Second Night

Third Night

Fourth Night

I should note that Subaru is not just a car company, it’s also the Japanese name for the Pleiades constellation, and the Pleiades appears on the car company’s logo.

So what do you think? Does it leave you wanting more? [edit: fixed second link]

You linked the first video twice instead of the second one.

As for the show itself, I thought it was fine. Not exactly groundbreaking, but I’d watch more of it.

Whoops, fixed. Thanks!
