I decided to watch "Hoshi no Umi" before watching "Hana no Uta" becuase people say it's a prequel. I was little scared at first because I've watched the previous Yozakura Quarter series and it had quite different character designs. At first I hated new ones but at the second sight I realised they're still really great.
So on to the actual review:

"Everyone says the starry night sky is beautiful."
To Azuma Rin starry night sky was something that she hated the most in the whole world. Why? You need to watch those 3 episodes to know because Rin is the real main character here!
