The official Twitter account for Subaru and Gainax's Hōkago no Pleiades anime project teased on Thursday that "Hōkago no Pleiades' NEXT STAGE is...eh? TV!?????" The official website still lists the next stage for 2013.
Gainax announced in March that it is working on a 90-minute Hōkage no Pleiades anime film.
The story centers around an afterschool club of magical girls who help recover fragments so that an alien from Pleiades can return home. The Pleiades is the English name for the star cluster that the Japanese call "Subaru" — the origin of the car maker's name and six-star logo. Subaru and Gainax streamed the original anime online with English subtitles.
