Studio 4°C and Toyota Motor Corporation began streaming the fifth episode, "Quiet Driving," 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 fourth 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 matsumura's "Get there, lie there" also began streaming on Friday:
Studio 4°C and Toyota will post the sixth episode in the series, "Driving the Storm," on August 3. Crunchyroll announced earlier this month that it is also streaming the shorts.
