Starry☆Sky Anime + Episodes 1-2

Welcome aboard everyone, now this is exciting, isn’t it, Eh?

This is my first ever anime review/opinion post, I’ve never written one before so I’ll attempt to convey my thoughts in the best way I can. Please take care of me~

I’ll be focusing on two episodes in each post on Starry Sky anime since each male character/love interest is explored through two episodes. I’ll also cover most of the general aspects of the anime in this post.

Starry☆Sky/スタ☆スカ

Genre: Slice of life, School life, Shoujo, Harem, Romance(this is included the genre but I’m not quite sure it fits)

Status: Currently airing, planned for 26 episodes, 11 minutes each episode

The heroine, Tsukiko, enrolled to a school that was recently changed from all-boys school to co-ed. Since the area where the school is conveniently rural and the rather exclusive curriculums the school has, up until now the heroine is the only one female who enrolled to the school.

In Starry Sky, the 12 constellations of the Zodiac are personified into handsome young men.

The anime will be directed by Kiyomo Sayaka. Adapted from the Starry Sky Otome Game series. The anime is in an episodic format.

Rated G – All Ages

When I got news that there was a to be an anime adaptation of Starry Sky I felt all warm & happy inside. However, at the same time, I pondered about the outcome, how could an otome game, filled with guys who all end up in love & married with the same woman possibly work. I had my doubts and there were certainly complications, but I still very much enjoyed the first 2 episodes, saying that, I have played the first part of the game, Starry Sky in Spring.

——————————-

There’s a lot of hype lately about the Starry Sky franchise, I can certainly feel it in the tumblr-sphere and it’s been circulating like mad. Released in 2009 by Honey-Bee, Starry☆Sky~in Spring~ is the first game followed by summer, autumn, winter. It now has further expansions like ‘after spring’ and well, I’m almost thoroughly confused. In this post I’ll attempt to cover Starry Sky in a general manner as well as focusing the ‘In Spring~’ game. This will also be M.Weekend’s first proper game related post. Hurrah!

First of all, I think Starry Sky boomed in the english-speaking world when the anime came out. The story, for an otome series is frankly, to me, quite sweet and absolutely perfect for it’s genre. Starry Sky focuses on a harem of one girl(who’s called Tsukiko Yahisa, but you can change her name)and 12 guys with each guy’s personality representing the 12 members of the Western Zodiac. It’s a neat idea to have the otome game player to seek out their love interests via zodiac personalities, it very reminiscent of Fruits Basket which uses the Chinese zodiac. It’s called Starry Sky because of the zodiac constellation theme(i assume) and the fact that everyone attends an Astronomy school which was formally only for boys(hence only one girl, you, da playa).

Each game season you get three love interests. Allow me to introduce to you formally the men of the ‘in spring~’ version. From right to left: Yoh Tomoe(capricorn), Kanata Nanami(pisces) and Suzuya Tohzuki(cancer):
