Online anime streaming service Anime Sols began streaming the first episode of Studio Pierrot's 1986 Magical Idol Pastel Yumi (Mahō no Idol Pastel Yumi) anime on Saturday. Anime Sols is aiming to collect US$18,000 by November 19 in order to release the first 13 episodes of the 25-episode series on DVD. As of press time, the website has collected US$1,675.
The Pastel Yumi anime revolves around Yumi Hanazono (voiced by Mariko Shiga), the daughter of owners of a flower shop. Although she does not have good grades, she loves to draw, and aims to become a manga artist. However, she is given a magical wand that can bring her creations to life by the elves Kakimaru (Miina Tominaga) and Keshimaru (Yuriko Fuchizaki) when she protects a flower from being stepped on. Although the power can also cause problems, she uses it to help her and her friends in everyday life.
