From the Audiovisual Identity Database, the motion graphics museum


Fairy Dust is an adult anime distribution label owned by Soeishinsha Company. The label distributed original anime videos, soundtracks, and general merchandise, primarily for their original Cream Lemon OVA anthology series.

1st Logo (August 11, 1984-February 21, 1987)

Visuals: It opens with a cyclical shot of outer space, and about five seconds in, the text "Fairy Dust presents" appears on screen with a lens flare effect. The lens flare and rainbow filter fade away, leaving the text and rotating starry sky.

Technique: All elements in the logo sequence were painted on approximately 4 animation cels. The starry background is made of two frames - a fully-painted background and a cel with extra stars - and the Fairy Dust logo and rainbow lens flare are two separate cells.


  • 1984-1985: A calm, descending string piece.
  • 1985-1987: It begins with some descending violin notes, and moves into an upbeat guitar riff to accentuate the "Fairy Dust presents" text. This is actually, an abriged version of the song "Knock wa Iranai" which is performed by Minami Asaoka.

Audio trivia: Both soundtracks are scored by Japanese composer Koji Makaino, known for his work on anime and pop music at the time.

Availability: It appears on many of Fairy Dust's early VHS and Laserdisc releases, including the original Cream Lemon episodes.

2nd Logo (March 21, 1987-1995)

Visuals: Over a more elaborate starscape, the camera pulls forward through space. At 4 seconds in, the revised Fairy Dust logo fades into view; neon pink lettering and three small stars are overlaid on a blue circle. The logo's outline briefly glows pink. After the glow fades, the sequence fades to black.

Variant: A still version of the logo appears on PC-98 games produced by the company. The white Katakana translation of the name is also shown below the logo.


  • Much like the former logo, the logo and background elements are painted on animation cels. A more elaborate layering effect is utilized to add extra dimension to the space shot.
  • The PC-98 version is a still, computer-generated graphic.

Audio: A soft, upbeat synth track, evocative of shoujo and romance anime soundtracks. The music is composed by Koji Makaino once again.

Audio Variant: None for the PC-98 variant.


  • This logo replaced the original 1984 logo, and would go on to appear on almost all of Fairy Dust's releases into the early 1990s. It is available in high quality on some of the DVD re-releases of Cream Lemon episodes.
  • The PC-98 variant has been used until the mid 1990s, and can be seen on games produced by the company such as 5 Jikanme no Venus.
