UPDATE: Several individuals have expressed interest in the Starry Sky Sound Track CD and since honeybee does not currently provide any track samples at the moment, I’ve decided to upload 3 songs’ samples and hopefully it’ll give you a taste of what to expect! Let’s all support Honeybee! Browse further in this post for the 3 song samples. I have uploaded them using SoudCloud and I’ve disabled the download option since this is copyrighted material.
Also, I’ve scanned the CD’s front & back cover as well as four pages for a little bit more quality.
“All the time I would I think of those precious days when the seasons came around.
All of us laughed,
with lots of love for you.”*
Hey ho! I’m so happy that my YesAsia order has finally arrived after 2 whole weeks as promised!
I bought two items in this order which is Starry Sky’s BGM Sound Track & the Gakuen Alice Illustration Fan-book. Of course, as the post title suggests, I will be posting a few snapshots of my Starry Sky lovely in this post & I’ll cover the Gakuen Alice book in a separate post since I often confuse myself in extremely long posts(plus I get to increase M.W’s post count by cheating like this). I won’t go into a large amount of detail, just a couple of bits and pieces that I think is worth sharing.
Oh yes, forgive me for some blurry photos, photography isn’t exactly my forte and I was quite excited!

There’s a little booklet with more details, it’s intergrated with the CD cover which is a nice touch, don’t have to worry about losing those album booklets with all those extra info.
The next two pages. Features conversations between characters of the within their respectable Starry Sky seasons.
The remaining pages are still more conversations but only the characters that are related to a particular song is adding their comments. By the way if you zoom into Yoh Tomoe’s pic he’s having a onigiri, it’s SUPER CUTE. I almost fainted. May the heavens help me.
Some pages that I’ve scanned for more quality. Sorry, I didn’t clean the gutter. ^_^;
The last page of the little guide has some words from the Starry Sky composer & producer & credits to the staff who made this wonderful CD become possible! Thank you!!!
This is what the CD looks. That’s Kazuki Shiranui who represents Aries, he’s the conductor since he’s the student council president in Starry Sky.
Overall, I’m quite happy with the product! I think you’ll have to really love the Starry Sky’s BGM in the game if you want to get this(sorry, pointing out the obvious). It’s a good collectable item for fans and it allows players of the game to remember those moments/feelings in game just by listening to the music without having to go through the game again. In my Starry Sky In Spring game review(which you can refer back here), I emphasised my love for the music and I think it’s the strongest aspect of Starry Sky as a whole.It’s quite a downer that they didn’t include all the theme songs of the Starry Sky compilation, they’re all available on separate OST CDs. I’ll definitely be listening to my copy this week(a lot) since it’s all instrumental and it’ll be perfect in helping me concentrate of my freaking assignments which I need to complete by this week! Ugh!
I got my copy from YesAsia.com which retailed at £15.38 after the US Dollar conversion rate. I found it a little pricey but I think the majority of the Starry Sky budget was allocated to the sound and music so I suppose its okay for them to extort this amount of money from me. Hehehe. I bought the Gakuen Alice Illustration book with it and qualified for free shipping so I can’t comment about the shipping costs. I think CDJapan.com carries this item too. Anyways, I’ll see y’all(not literally) in the next post where I’ll cover the Gakuen Alice book!
*got this from the Official HoneyBee website, I tried correcting the sentence a bit with my personal interpretation. I love the line!
