posted on by Ko Ransom
Next episode of promotional anime scheduled for July 6 release

Studio 4°C and Toyota Motor Corporation began streaming the third 4-minute 23-second episode, "Fun Fun Drive," from its web promotional anime series PES: Peace Eco Smile on Friday.

The comical shorts center around PES, a traveler from space, and NaSuBi, a mysterious life-form who is enamored by the charm of Earth. They immerse themselves in the Tokyo neighborhood of Kichijōji and learn about kindness to people, the value of loving, and the importance of the little happinesses in life. The second video from the series was posted earlier this month.

Yuichiro Hayashi (Batman: Gotham Knight) is directing the project, and Akiko Yajima (Crayon Shin-chan's title character) is voicing NaSuBi. The musical artists Halfby, Yuri Miyauchi, Hiroko Sebu, Seiichi Yamamoto, Yuya Matsumura (white white sisters), and Spangle call Lilli line are all collaborating on the soundtrack. A new music video of Sebu's contribution to the soundtrack — listed only as "title undecided" — also began streaming on Friday:

The fourth episode in the series, "Quiet Driving," is scheduled to be posted on July 6.
