2nd "making-of" video about drawing background art also streamed

Studio 4°C and Toyota Motor Corporation began streaming the sixth episode, "Driving the Storm," 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 and fifth video from the series was posted last month along with the second "making-of" video, in which PES art director Toru Hishiyama describes the process of drawing background art:

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 toe's "The Future Is Now" also began streaming on Friday:

Studio 4°C and Toyota will post the seventh episode in the series, "Drive your Smile," on August 17. Crunchyroll announced last month that it is also streaming the shorts.
