Astrophysics, timeline fuckery, cute magical girls, sensible character drama, great non-generic male character, no bullshit, no fuckups, just a little underrated gem which many people probably just not watch because they falsely belive it's just an extensive car commercial.
First two episodes are a bit slow, stuff really gets going with ep.3 though.

This.
It's an homage to old gainax themes such as parallel universes, time travel, space, travel at lightspeed affecting time perception.
All sprinkles with tons of cute shenanigan, feels, goody morals and overall fun.
And also a little bit of fanservice.
And pretty good direction.
And good seyus.

Good themes and good implementation.

From your comment it's pretty clear you haven't watched Pleiades.
It's nothing like Madoka. They are both good in their own ways, but just because they have mahou shoujo it doesn't mean they are the same.

What hate? The worst thing you could say about Pleiades is that most people ignored the show because of the premise and the studio. And even that's not really true, since by the time the show ended, it had already developed a reputation as a sleeper hit on /a/ and a lot of people caught up with it and decided to watch it because of /a/ threads. I don't remember any shitposting in Pleiades threads except very, very, very little shipper wars faggotry.

I thought it was garbage. Well animated, very pretty garbage, but garbage. The moment they decided they could just break all the rules they'd established in previous episodes because 'muh anything goes when you have a goal or whatever' excuse really sealed the deal.

Though really what made me hate it is how none of the main characters show the slightest bit of curiosity or understanding of their world. Yeah yeah, they're 13 year olds or whatever, but you think ONE of them would have shown a bit of interest or asked a question or something when confronted with something like a bloody TIME MACHINE instead of just being like 'oh well, we have to plan for the cultural festival now!'
>>
>>133693718

And literally all because of the weepy last episode. MAL will eat up any melodramatic crying anime pretty much but give them anything remotely challenging and you'll be lucky if it cracks 10K viewers and gets much above 7.00 in ratings.

Teenagers getting in touch with their emotions and being sentimental saps? Honestly who knows, it's just like a virtual guarantee. You could have a whole show be a slog but play the Maeda style waterworks finale card and it's an automatic instant masterpiece to MAL and enough of Japan to matter. It's part of A-1s bread and butter now pretty much.
>>
Who in their right mind said Hougaku no Pieceofshit was AOTY?
>>
>>133696646
>Teenagers getting in touch with their emotions and being sentimental
Honestly this. You have to understand that for the young, any show that makes them tear up is the first show that makes them tear up. It's "grounbdbreaking," "revolutionary" and etc. because they've never seen the millions of things that did it better, or that it was simply a derivative of. They don't have the context to recognize good melodrama from bad melodrama, so they rate highly whatever constitutes their introduction to melodrama.

Shows aimed at a younger audience, especially those made to play to emotions, will always end up with popular ratings higher than their quality deserves, because that audience doesn't have the context to say "X 5 years ago did it better" or "that concept was put to much better use in Y"

I usually try to watch about at least one new series a week.

Last week I looked at my archive and realized i had finished everything that I had downloaded. and while i was waiting for a new series to finish downloading i decided to rewatch the first episode of Pleiades.

Long story short, i ended up watching the first 7 episodes that day. and the rest the next.

I love the show too much. Its neo sincerity mahou shojou in a day of edgy fighting mahou shojou, its very comforting. and the space themes are beautiful renditions of space as more than just a backdrop.

It's one of those shows that have 3-4 vocal faggots proclaiming it to be the best fucking thing ever because they liked it. It's still shit an MAL's score (in light of scores of other shows) is actually fitting.

I think my favorite part of Pleiades that harkons back to other magical girl shows is how it integrates product placement seamlessly into the show.

But instead of advertising for plastic toys and plushies, its all about WRXs and Imprezas.

people hate on it because its
>gainax
>gainax not doing giant robots
but it has the most perfect balance of comfy/serious and absurd/science of any magical girl anime I've seen. Drama is ever present but conflict never drags on and it never feels angsty at all. Really one of the most carefully made series I've seen.

However, it doesn't have a lot of action in the beginning, and it doesn't try to be as openly dark as yuuki yuuna or madoka, nor as kid friendly as precure, maybe that's why it wasn't very popular.

There wasn't really anything about it aimed at otaku. For all intents and purposes, it was a kid's show, just a very good one.

There's an artbook on CDJapan, is it worth it? Do we even know what's in there?
>>
>>133719249
I got it.
It's okay. Most of the art is dissapointingly small. There's no full-page background art, which is a shame. They cram about five or six background pieces onto a page.

It has all the character art though, from both the ONA and the series.
>>
>>133719665
>There's no full-page background art, which is a shame. They cram about five or six background pieces onto a page.
That's absurd, why the hell would they do something like that? I can understand not dedicating a full page to every background, but cramming a half dozen tiny images onto a page really defeats the purpose of even being an artbook in the first place.

>>133716370
I've been a Gainax fan for their robotto stuff and absolutely loved Pleiades. I guess I'm strange.
>>
>>133719751
Yeah, I guess they didn't want to spend loads of money on it. It's not exactly popular.

I'm still glad I bought it though, since it's probably the best we're going to get. The character sections are perfectly good. Concept Hikaru a cute.
It also has all the magic circles, and a translation of the weird alphabet they used.

I'd say it's worth it if you love the show, but just don't expect good background/setting art.

I just finished episode 6. I don't see why everyone is sperging all over this show, it's nice but it's nothing great.
The characters are cliché, the CGI is shit, the designs aren't interesting (except Aoi) and the car commercial aspect kills every attempt at making you dream. Can someone explain to me why the guy just surrenders and goes away every time the girls manage to get hold of a fragment? This is Team Rocket-tier.
That said, the moment they crossed space at an incredible speed was a piece of art in terms of visual direction and the plot is interesting.

The Vol.6 of BD will be released on 25/11/2015. I can not wait for this any more!

I love this anime. Actually, there was an OVA at 2011. When I watched the OVA, it is too boring for me. But the TV series is pretty good!

The character design is pretty moe, and the scenes of university and haven are very beautiful. I know the atmosphere of stories is a little of boring, but every story is very po-warm.

The core of Gainax's anime is never changed. The story of love, no matter friends, families or lovers, and the blessing for human beings. Gainax is my best favorite anime company. I was very moved and excited when finished Pleiades because I realized Gainax is never dead even Anno's and Imaishi's group have left Gainax.

He doesn't actually want to hurt them for it because he's not evil and he's in love with Subaru.
