Mihara Shouma is a first-year high school student. Shouma hasn't seen his good friend Atsushi in 3.5 years, ever since they lost contact with each other after elementary school. One day, Atsushi gets in contact with Shouma to invite him to a rare festival, so they can meet up and talk. Shouma goes to the "Tanabata Seven Night Festival" deep in the mountains, but Atsushi is not there. Instead, a girl named Shiori who also has a person she wants to meet is there. The festival's program manager Kanna suggests that he stay until the festival is over, and so Shouma and Shiori help Kanna prepare for the festival. Shouma and Shiori then get wrapped up in some strange events happening in the town.

Oh boi, a movie that I did not know, or practically nobody, and that has come so easily to my heart despite having a meh story.
(I know it's an Ona, but movie sounds better fo me)

The film proposes Shoma, a normal boy, as his main character, which his best friend he had not seen in 3 years calls him to go to a festival, to which our protagonist is excited to go and see his friend. Once, in the place where the whole story takes place, we are introduced to two more characters: Kanna and Shiori. And you know this is a serius reference to read more

like other people, i found this thinking it was a TV series. watched it anyway and got quite surprised by the nice art and good character design. not even half in they straight up tell you the ending of the OVA, and if that wasn't enough they keep telling you more and more as if you didnt get it the first time. the creator could have made a real tear jerker movie out of this, but they totally ruined the mood by inserting useless fighting scene.

-very beautiful background and character
-good concept

-seeing the ending a mile away
-the ending is spoiled tru the whole film
-un-needed fighting read more

Starlight Promises focuses on a high school student named Shoma Mihara invited to participate in a mysterious festival from his friend Atsushi, whom he hasn't seen since their days as elementary school students. During preparations for the festival, Shoma becomes acquainted with another high schooler his age named Shiori Senozawa seeking to reunite with her sister and the festival's organizer, Kanna, who appears in a holographic form throughout the festival preparations.

Revealing elements about this ONA does have some major spoilers for what its true premise is all about, so I'll try to tread carefully with my thoughts on Starlight Promises. But essentially, it mixes elements read more

Super short review and my first one ever.

So in my honest opinion I don't think this show is worthy of the 8 I gave it if you strictly look at it analytically. The story itself is quite unoriginal, they could have done so much more with sound, the visuals are nothing to go on about, and the characters could've definitely had more depth to them would it not have been for the totally unnecessary fight scenes.

Speaking of those fight scenes... seriously, why? They served absolutely no read more
