The protagonist, Tsukiko Yahisa, 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 protagonist is the only one female who enrolled to the school.
In Starry Sky, the 13 constellations of the Zodiac are personified into handsome young men. The anime will be directed by Kiyomo Sayaka who worked with Vampire Knight. Similar to Hetalia - Axis Powers, Starry Sky's anime will be distributed through the Animate.tv website and other means.
As someone who played all the starry sky games, this is a pathetic attempt to try to squeeze every single character's plotline into 1 show. They only give 2 episodes per guy (which is only 11 min per episodes so a full episode per guy). They don't even use this time wisely to fully cover or describe the character. In fact they have tended to add original stuff (like Homare's episodes) and completely change the perception of characters to those who never played the games. The animation & character designs were transferred poorly and everyone had derpy faces 90% of the time.
one of the worst game adaptations I've ever seen and if you really want to know the stories of Starry Sky, go play the games.
My first reaction to this anime was, "Oh, this will just follow the girl with all the guys being a constollation.. okay." But after I caught on to the actual story, I started to enjoy it better.
First off, this anime is a good one to sit down and watch with a friend, when you are sick of another anime, just bored, or you want to find out about these constollation things. It is really interesting how every two eps a new character is brought in with a celestial sign of their own. How the said person acts throughout the two eps is all upon their
I gave this anime a high rating because it really made me think of everyone I know and their own signs. If they'd act similar as the characters whom match their signs.
What caught my attention with the art work were the eyes of everyone. To me, if the anime doesn't have good detail on the eyes, it's not worth it almost half the time. However, this one reached the bar for my liking and didn't disappoint in another after that.
How this anime ended left me satisfied. The creators wrapped it all up so perfectly that I never imagine another season.
Just finished rewatching this series (yeah rewatching since nostalgia hit me and I'm bored so why not?). I'm rating this as a person who has not played all of the starry sky game franchise (I've only played Spring... Suzuya-samaaaa//slapped) so I don't have the capability of comparing between which is better or worse. That's why I can rationally say that this anime is a good watch if you just want something light and fluffy and a must watch if you're planning to play the game itself.
Okay, this anime is about a girl who loves astronomy so she decided to enroll to
a school that specializes it. The school recently became co-ed so she's the only girl in the whole academy. Erm, we definitely heard about that plot before so what makes this series slightly different from the rest? It's the atmosphere. Watching it made me feel at peace. Like a poem... or maybe a karuta. The anime sings and has it's unique melody for each episode that makes you cling to it even though it is all just speeches. Haha
Art is good though there are times that the animators got lazy and they just spawn pictures. Though they are nicely drawn, I would still like them to move, you know.
The ending theme is just... no effort. I understand, though because of budget issues but... sigh.
No opening song. They have no time for that because if they did, there would be no show because... there would be no time *laughs*
But they made up with their seiyuus (I like the female protagonist's voice... it suited her). The opening song is okay, no complaints.
This is where Starry Sky shines - their beautiful sets of handsome shounen, all according to season. Because that's what this anime is all about, introducing these guys and their backstories. Each character represents a certain zodiac sign, which they represent astoundingly. My sign is Cancer and my best friend's sign is Taurus and this show hit the bulls-eye for each of our sign. That's why I assure you that you can definitely enjoy this anime... because it connects to its audience.
Like I said, this anime is like a poem that sings. It touches your soul and makes you feel at peace. It speaks to you by speeches of harmony. It makes your heart aflutter for each character. Definitely a shoujo worth watching.
All in all, watching and rewatching this series made me search youtube and search for video walkthroughs of the game series because I want to know more and explore every lovable character in this series. Because they're awesome and I especially want to explore more of their stories and how they connect to the female protagonist. And love their stories.
Starry☆Sky is an anime that is a series of Japanese otome game visual novels created and developed by the software company Honeybee. It was separated into four games, the first released in 2009, with three love interests in each, making a total of twelve possible love interests. It was well received in Japan, having Drama CDs, countless manga adaptations and a 26 episode anime adaptation. While it was revived well for many of the otome games, the anime is a swing and miss at bat.
Story: 5.19/10 (*Review Begins)
Tsukiko Yahisa is the first female student to attend Seigetsu Academy, a former all-boys school specializing in astronomy.
She is closely watched over by her childhood friends, Kanata Nanami and Suzuya Tohzuki, who often protect her from the male student body. Throughout the anime, she befriends other young men whose personalities are based on the Western zodiac constellations. *While the plot seems captivating, it didn't keep me intrigued for very long. The herione, Yahisa is the ONLY female? While this is a reverse harem, and many people don't watch anime for it's realistic factors, the animators also claim this a "slice of life". That seems a little too exaggerated then. The episode pacing and layout are very irritating. The pacing is very slow, and episode 9 still feels as though we are at square one. The layout of meeting each boy is very repetitive, following the same layout every two episodes.
1) Small talk. 2) Flashbacks. 3) "Deppresing" back story. 4) Rather, Rinse, Repeat.
I wish I was joking. Seeing as each epsiode is 10 minutes long (sometimes feeling like 30), each boy gets to have two episodes. The layout gets old fast, and the "depressing back stories" are as far as i see it are dumb. You are half-French? Your life must be so terrible. You have a laugh that everyone makes fun of? You poor baby. While some boys have legit back stories (terminal illness sucks), they only get to those in the last few episodes so by that point, I don't care anymore. My hopes weren't that high for a story anyway, seeing as its a reverse harem (if you want to see a good one, watch Ouran Highschool Host Club!)
+ Intriguing synopsis
- Stupid back stories
- Layout gets old fast.
- Why is she the ONLY girl?
- Pacing Slow
The art wasn't super amazing, but it wasn't a piece of garbage. The color pallet was beautifully done, and the characters on how they are animated are okay. The men and woman are attractive, but the scenery wasn't as crisp as it could be. Again had a lot of potential.
+Characters animated well
+ Attractive color scheme
- Scenery was shabby
The opening was horrible. It was basically a sideshow of all the guys posing and the girl walking around. While the song was a huge EW, the ending wasn't as bad. The voice acting was well done (both sub and dub) it wasn't the greatest thing I've heard. Seeing as there are 13 main characters, I thought they could've tried to shorten the beginning as much as possible as you get only 10 minuets a pop.
+ Voice acting
- OP and CL was bad
Mary-Sue alert. Our herione is one of the most cliche female lead I've ever had the unfortune to lay eyes on. She is over determined (" It's fine! I can carry this!" "Go on ahead I'm fine!") and is waaaaay to clumsy. Those aren't flaws, because in reality everyone is in the least bit clumsy. While she is the prefect girl, the guys have flaws at least. They have the DPBS Syndrome ("depressing" back story syndrome) and some of them are way to over protective. I hate all of them equally, so no I don't have a faveroite guy. Our herione is also a tinsy bit ignorant.
My enjoyment of bashing this anime is far to fun. But seriously, I actually liked it, even though everything sucked. It's like a guilty pleasure, you know how bad it is, though you keep watching. I'm not sure why, I think it's because it tried so hard to be good, and I have to give it points for that.
After adding the scores, averaging the total, I get a well deserved 6. The anime wasn't that bad, but definely has some parts the made me nerd rage. I opt you give this anime a try, but don't take my word for how bad it is. I expect to get a lot of people replying "not helpful" for this review, even though I had to write this stupid review twice. I hope that you will enjoy/ have enjoyed this anime, liked my review, and will give me some feedback. Check out my other reviews, and as always, Enjoy!
