Anime: Starry☆Sky Series (Midorikawa Hikaru, Sugita Tomokazu, Ishida Akira, etc, honeybee)

Anime based on mega popular otome girls drama CD series Starry☆Sky will begin broadcast on 23 December 2010.

The lucky people in Japan would have been able to watch the special free broadcast of the first episode of Starry Sky Capricorn at Animate Japan’s Ikebukuro store from 18 December till 26 December 2010.

Yahisa Tsukiko is the first female student to enroll at Seigatsu Academy, a former all-boys school specializing in astronomy. She is closely watched over by her childhood friends, Nanami Kanata (Pisces boy) and Touzuki Suzuya (Cancer boy), who often protect her from the male student body. Throughout the story, she befriends other young men whose personalities are based on the Western zodiac constellations.

In the first episode, not long after Tsukiko transfers to Seigatsu Academy, a half-French boy named Tomoe Yoh (Capricorn boy) follows suit to pursue her. This action stirs up emotions from Kanata and Suzuya, both of whom had long loved Tsukiko.

From the looks of it, the producers will be focusing on each constellation boy’s story with the heroine in short episodic formats and I’m guessing probably from the Starry Sky games? I think this will probably work well for a series like this. It helps to keep the story tight and will probably give each boy relatively equal screen time. Fans of different boys will probably be happier with this arrangement rather than having them try to create a main plot-line and then risk screwing up the whole thing.

Stills from the anime look pretty good :) I’m looking forward to it but keeping my expectations low in case I get disappointed. OTL

DVD of the anime is out for preorder too. There’s the special edition with goodies and the regular edition as well.

  1. @ponytale: lol!! omg i just saw that episode just yesterday night! I had the same reaction! I laughed so hard, i’m like “wtf Shiki!” The shiny detailed teeth and running toward Nano was to much! XD
    I’m so disappointed in the anime series, i’m glad its almost over! It did give me a lot of good laughs.;;
    The only thing i liked about the anime was the fact that Nano looked awesome (at times), even though he looked nothing like the original and the flashback part with him in it was cute.;;
    (part of Rins flashback was cute too.)

    I’m looking forward to seeing the Starry Sky anime!
    i added most of them to my twitter. I wonder what surprise will be. XD;;

    1. @sigma: Yeah the TnC anime was so hilarious to watch at times I want to cry OTL;;; The boys get to look really good once in a while in various occasional close up shots but often times they look incredibly bad :( I appreciate the creative fan service here and there since they can’t show smex but overall it was just too disappointing.

      I’m looking forward to Starry Sky anime too :D just one more day to broadcast. Hehehe I wonder what they have planned for Christmas too! XD

  2. Yess! I crossed my fingers that they would make 2 episodes for each guy instead of random harem mix storyline :>
    I’ve only played Spring and Summer yet but I’m totally getting Nanami Kanata (Pisces) pillow. I just love tsundere guys X3

    Hope it turns out good!

    1. @Yumii: I think they’re using the game plot lines which is good. I have the Autumn game but haven’t finished it :P Yeah, harem storyline can be very annoying if not done well. And this series has 13 guys! Can’t imagine how they would pull that off XD

      I think they’re really clever marketers by mixing up the different characters together. Cos maybe I don’t like Guy A so much but because Guy F is also in the same story, I’ll be tempted to buy it :-\ so in the end, I buy the whole series OTL. Yep… I’m trying not to have too high hopes in case I’m disappointed but I can’t suppress the excitement as the date of release draws nearer.

  3. I am sooo excited about this anime. I just hope it turns out better than TNC. Good lord. Anyway special edition goodies are always win for me. I’ll have to get those.

    1. @Nagara9: Yeah me too! I think Studio DEEN should do a much better job than what A1 did for TnC :3 My god… did you see that silly scene in Episode 11 where we see Shiki run towards Nano for his blood? The POV from inside his opened mouth (could even see that row of teeth on top of the screen) My jaw dropped and my mouth literally opened at that one. OTL;;;

      I’m so curious about the pillow case lol lol XD WANT.
