Sentai Filmworks is exercising a bit more of their digital rights this week with the inclusion of Sora no Method, aka Celestrial Method, as it’s now starting its run on Hulu. The fall 2014 series is one that Sentai Filmworks picked up early on and has plans for an eventual home video release down the line as well. Those with a Hulu Plus subscription, you can watch this show on your TV and mobile devices.
Celestial Method is directed by Masayuki Sakoi, who worked on the Needless series as director as well as Princess Resurrection and several other shows over the years, going back to Strawberry Panic. The show has an original concept and script by Naoki Hisaya, who worked on the two Kanon releases as well as the original creator for Sola, which gives a few clues as to what kind of show this will be like. Character designs will be handled by QP:flapper while the adaptation of them is done by Yukie Akitani, who is also serving as the chief animation director.
The series stars Natsukawa Shiina as Nonoka Komiya, Inori Minase as Noel, Haruka Yoshimura as Shiiba Koharu, Kaito Ishikawa as Souta Mizusaka and Aki Toyosaki as Yuzuki Mizusaka.
Plot concept: The story revolves around a group of girls whose wish becomes realized with a miracle, changing the landscape of a town.
