Houkago no Pleiades
This has to be one of the very few mahou shoujo anime that I actually find watchable. I mean, I am not at all a big fan of mahout shoujo anime because they are too girly and become really boring after just a while because you just can’t take it seriously.
Yes. It does look a little girly. Little girls in “cute” outfits that fly around on sticks and cast magic in order to achieve their objectives… What can you expect from a mahou shoujo anime? This is what they look like.
I must admit that I’m a little bit interested since there’s a male character in the show that doesn’t seem to transform into some “cute”, gay-looking mage. I find that very interesting, although I’m not a big fan of that alien blob.
This is going to be one of those see-for-yourself-shows. I myself am giving this the benefit of the doubt and will try and watch the second episode, even though I’ve already seen a lot of stuff that I don’t like.
Plot Summary: Subaru is a young girl who discovers that her best friend Aoi is part of magical group trying to gather engine fragments so that a little being from Pleiades can return to his home. Subaru considers joining them as she was chosen by the Pleiadian, president of this afterschool club.
