Studio 4°C and Toyota Motor Corporation began streaming "Drive your Smile," the seventh episode from their web promotional anime series PES: Peace Eco Smile, on Friday. While this is the last announced episode of the series, Studio 4°C's official Twitter account hinted about a second phase of the project.
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.
Yuichiro Hayashi (Batman: Gotham Knight) directed the project, and Akiko Yajima (Crayon Shin-chan's title character) voiced NaSuBi. The musical artists Halfby, Yuri Miyauchi, Hiroko Sebu, Seiichi Yamamoto, yuya matsumura (white white sisters), and Spangle call Lilli line all collaborated on the soundtrack.
A new music video of Hiroko Sebu's "The PES World" also began streaming on Friday:
Crunchyroll announced last month that it is also streaming the shorts.
