T'Was my first impression on this anime but fortunately it has none of that.
Hoshizora e Kakaru Hashi or in English, A Bridge to the Starry Skies, or in the French, Un pont vers le ciel étoilé (everything sound sexier in French) is based on a visual novel made by Feng whom I'm not familiar with any other works. (Known for making the visual novel Akane Iro, which was then adapted into an anime, that was a disaster) Having finished this galge using a lousy translator program that killed every emotional scene that the eroge had to offer (Yes, you know I'm talking about you read more

Hoshizora e Kakaru Hashi is an anime based off the visual novel of the same name. I haven't played that visual novel, more specifically I don't play visual novels at all, so I cannot comment on the coherence of the adaptation. Instead, I am going to analyze and critique this anime as a standalone work.

Hoshizora e Kakaru Hashi tells the story of two brothers who are in the process of moving homes. As they're looking for a place to stay, the older brother (Kazuma) gets lost in a forest. He meets a girl, and of course, he ends up "accidentally" kissing her. This is the read more

Hoshizora e Kakaru Hashi has somewhat a natural feel for being a harem anime, it is a harem, romance, comedy, and a little bit of ecchi making it somewhat an average harem.

Story: 8
As seen in the sypnosis the main character Kazuma moved to a small town from the city. And he accidentaly kisses Ui and Ibuki saw them and so Kazuma's new life begins in the school where he transferred and make matters worse Ibuki and Ui is his classmate .

Art: 9

Let me get this straight, the main reason I started watching this is because that picture reminded me of Shuffle!
Hate it or love it, Shuffle! is among the best harem shows I've ever seen.

But that's not all, when I saw that it's a Seinen, I imediately thought that I'd see something even more mature that Shuffle! (and more down to Earth - not that the angel/demon thing bugged me too much).

The first episode was astounding, the art was the first thing I noticed and let's be honest, it desevers a 10.
More importantly, the art is similar to Studio Key so my hopes increased tenfold

*Falling over the girl* *looks in her eyes almost mouth close*
-Romantic Scene-
For me its the first time the guy falls over the girl and kisses her (accidently). And I've seen many Romance Series..

It's another romance with some Comedy. I'm starting to see less and less unique ones.

KEEP IN MIND Only 2 episodes have been released which this review is based on.
(For a quicker review, check Overall)

Story: 7
He accidentally trips and falls over her and gives her a good sweet accidental kiss while Ui's best friend Hinata sees this. read more

This is a really cute romance show that I will probably want to re-watch again in a year or two (that way I forget the details).

The story evolves around a boy named Kazuma who once visited this small town and now, 10 years later, has to live there, but the only memories he has of this small town was his short time that was spent playing with a girl. On his arrival to the town, his little brothers hat gets stolen by a forest monkey and Kazuma then chases it far into the forest. Finally, getting the hat he stumbles upon a girl name Ui, read more

Even though people haven't given this anime very good reviews, I still liked it a lot. I just had a fun time watching it, and it'll be my Summer Anime to watch along with Air, so don't think that I'm overrating things, because I really loved this anime.

Story: 8

Story of boy meets girl, so pretty normal, but the entire anime is full of comedy, romance, you know, normal stuff for harem animes. But I was amazingly satisfied with the ending, so watch it, you'll know what I mean.

Art: 10

I loved the art, in fact, this anime had the best artwork I've ever seen in an read more

"Dont judge anime if you havent watching all the episode" LESSON LEARNED~

Why would i say that? First, like the other reviewer said, the first impression that you will get was "Incestous Homosexual" but praise to the lord and the creator of this anime, the anime wasnt about that.

Hoshizora e Kakaru Hashi or A Bridge to the Starry Skies (kinda weird name) is like your usual generic harem anime which we have a bunch of cute girls and one boy that being liked by many girls. what means "like your usual generic harem anime"? USUALLY or we can said ALWAYS, harem anime didnt have any romantic read more

Compared with other harem genre, this anime has a story that is 'finished', then at least the audience can expect the protagonist Kazuma will eventually have one girl character. And the preparation ofits setting is also not at all bad. The traditions of the fictional city of Yamabiko enough to be seasonings that will make fans of the romantic story touched. However, this anime is still unable to extricate themselves from having to peel the lives of the other girls, so this anime is full of events that do not need such help resolve an argument with agirl his father or to help a girl read more

Even though almost all harem anime are very similar (in terms of plot and characters), at least most of them have a little unique element to help separate themselves from others. This is not the case with Hoshizora e Kakaru Hashi, this anime is probably one of the most generic series out there. There is just nothing about this series that pops out.

Hoshizora e Kakaru Hashi starts out like most harems, the protagonist has just moved into a new town and then has the accidental kiss with the main heroine of the story. After getting introduced to all the characters, the protagonist gets one on read more

Hoshizora e Kakaru Hashi is an anime that adapted from the same title VN by feng who also the creator of VN Akane iro ni Somaru Saka. Well The story itself is not so new and just a common teenager story. The MC is Kazuma, one day he and his (cute?) little brother, ayumu, moved to a small town and meet various girls there. The plot is ordinary but interesting. I laughed a lot when i watched this anime. But for viewers that seek the harem anime, i think this isn't a harem anime.

Well, this anime rise in the art. After all, this is 2011 read more

Hoshizora e Kakaru Hashi, A Bridge to the Starry Skies gave a promising start but as it progressed it came out to be a generic harem. After reading the synopsis i thought it might be something different from usual harem but after first two episodes the quality really started to deteriorate.

Story: 6
Story has nothing new to offer and is highly predictable in fact the synopsis given for this anime itself tells the whole story.

Art: 9
It has a high quality art and you can watch this anime for it.

Sound: 9
Sound is also one of the positive aspects of this anime. Starting theme is really a nice read more

Your typical run-of-the-mill school harem animes, where more focus is put into fan service, character design and suggestive jokes rather than actual storyline or character development. But then again this one does have some nice animation and an attractive cast. Again, nothing special but still worth a watch if you just want to take a break from some of the srsbusiness animes out there.

Storyline is pretty your textbook harem plot; guy has visted/lived in the town in the past, returns for some reason but manages to leave behind any memories of previous encounters he may have had. He bumps into a girl and later read more

I decided to watch this in my time deciding what major anime I should watch next.

The story revolves around male lead Kazuma Hoshino and is pretty much your usual slice-of-life romance although there are its little differences here and there. For one, the cast are in a small town rather than a large city bustling with all sorts of things to do. Rather, their town is quiet and very open with forests and other nature-like things.


Kazuma Hoshino and his little brother Ayumu Hoshino are moving to a small country town to settle in before their parents do. However, as shown in the beginning, this read more

Hoshizora e Kakaru Hashi is another harem romance. Thankfully recently the genre has evolved with the use of omnibus format, and a higher frequency of couples. Of course, these are some general things that have made the genre more bearable and enjoyable. Unfortunately, there is nothing that makes Hoshizora stick out among the dozens of harems, but overall not a horrible watch.

Our lead Kazuma is pretty standard. He returns the countryside after a long time due to his sickly little brother. Kazuma is not horribly dense which is a relief, but he doesn't have any redeeming qualities other than the typical kindness towards others. As read more

A Bridge to the starry skies, is an adaptation of the visual novel "Hoshizora e Kakaru Hashi". The anime centers around 2 brothers, moving from the city to the country side due to the poor health of the younger sibling.

The anime is a cliche of romance and harems, as this is an adaptation from a game, therefore should be expected. Even with this, the anime does well, as the beautiful visuals is very appealing and quite outstanding in any standard of anime. The characters are different and varied enough that the heroines don't seem dull, therefore bodes well for a romance anime. I must read more

Story: Hoshizora e Kakaru Hashi, or A Bridge to the Starry Skies, is another harem story about Kazuma Hoshino moving out to the countryside because his younger brother Ayumu has a certain health problem. Now upon arrival they sort of get lost and Kazuma somehow accidentally kiss Ui when he slips and fell on her. Kind of the typical harem thing anyways, and his life in the small town of Yambiko soon starts as he makes friends and help out the other girls. Another typical thing in a harem genre anime. However the story does have a sort of romance to it and with read more

Some spoilers below

Hoshizora e kakaru Hashi I liked this anime to some degree i would have liked to have seen more character development and more parts where Kazuma tried to interact with everyone. from the start i knew he was gonna get with ui i would have liked to have seen more dialogue between them

STORY: to my extent there was really no story other than madoka and kazuma were friends it disappointed me that there was really no story just a bunch of random events that happened. i thought that the fact that kazuma would get with madoka since that's the only knowledge read more

To me, this is about as close to a perfect comedy/harem anime as you can get. It wasn't just a bunch of jumbled episodes dedicated solely to fan service, which I appreciate. Fan service is nice and all, but there is a thing called too much fan service, and many harem animes are guilty of it. Here, it's more, how should I put it... "fitting" "tasteful"? You get the point. Above that, there isn't some ambiguous ending. That's right, a harem lead that actually picks a girl at the end! He's not such an indecisive dunce as many read more

Hoshizora e Kakaru Hashi; Is the very definition of average.

_The story follows a tried and true path that was taken by dozens of animations before and probably hundreds of manga. If you are ever surprised at one of the "arcs" it must be because you just started watching anime.

_It is enjoyable, in the exact same measure a bowl of corn flakes (or other plain cereal) is enjoyable. It's a product you know; you don't think about corn flakes, It does not fill you, nor does it provide any long term sustenance. It continues to exist for the sake of going through the motions in read more
