after witnessing a star shower one night, Subaru went to the school like usual the very next day, but entered a room to find it turned into a strange magical garden. then she was led by a blob, which was later identified as Pleiadian, into the room, where she met with 4 other girls, one of them was her friend, Aoi. other than dressed in strange outfit, Subaru discovered that they were a magical group united by Pleiadian to recover the alien engine fragments, so that it can return back home. Subaru was the fifth members selected for this afterschool club.
the anime was a joint anime project with Subaru, a Japanese car manufacturer, thus having the main character named after the brand. however, the anime was a Mahou Shoujo (magical girl) series, nothing in relate with vehicles. the short series didn't spend much time introducing the characters, with magical beings hidden from everyone but the selected few. the room Subaru entered was supposed to be one of the classrooms, but with her being one of the selected ones, she could access the very same classroom yet ended up in a magical room. the idea had me fascinated. what appeared to be so simple turned out to be fairy satisfying as well!
