Hello everyone and welcome to another day of announcements here at Crunchyroll!

First off, Wish Upon the Pleiades will be available Wednesdays, starting today at 12:15pm Pacific Time, for Crunchyroll members in the following territories: United States, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, Latin America, Europe, the Middle East, and North Africa.


Originally a collaboration project between Japanese car manufacturer Subaru and animation studio Gainax of Evangelion fame, Wish Upon the Pleiades, known in Japan as Houkago no Pleiades, features a cast of magical girls who are helping an alien to recover fragments so that it can return home to the Pleiades.

Natsumi Takamori, whose other roles have included Misaki Kamiigusa in The Pet Girl of Sakurasou, stars as Subaru; Ayuru Ohashi, who also voiced Harigane Onigase in Medaka Box, plays Aoi; Kanako Tateno, who also voiced Shirayuki-hime in Fairy Musketeers, stars as Itsuki; Saki Fujita, perhaps best known for being the voice of the Vocaloid Hatsune Miku, plays Nanako; and Yui Makino, who was also Sakura in the Tsubasa: RESERVoir CHRoNiCLE series, voices Hikaru.

* * * * *

We also have Urawa no Usagi-chan coming on Thursday, April 9 at 10:30am Pacific Time for Crunchyroll members worldwide except for Asia.


An original work from TV Saitama, Urawa no Usagi-chan features 8 anthropomorphic girls representing the stations in Saitama prefecture, that all have “urawa” in their names. To keep with the local spirit, all of the voice actresses for the show are from Saitama as well. Urawa no Usagi-chan focuses on the daily lives of these 8 high school girls.

The cast, all Saitama natives, include Asami Seto as Usagi Takasago, Hisako Tojo as Midori Saido, Keiko Watanabe as Minami Oyaba, Miyu Kubota as Kojika Bessho, Nao Tamura as Misono Mimuro, Rumi Ookubo as Saiko Numakage, Satomi Akesaka Tokiwa Kamikizaki, and Yo Taichi as Sakura Tajima.

I'm kinda sick of the cutesy girl series, that are just about cutesy anime girls and no other substance. Every time I see posters like this I just feel a little sad and let down. I hope these shows are more than their press posters and short descriptions.

A lot of people are expecting it, specially in Brazil and the rest of LA, but since it is on Daisuki already it is not a big a deal to me anymore.

So an anime about magical girls that are based on Subaru cars. And a slice of life about cute train stations doing cute train station things.

This is the future. And it's a good future.
