One day her former friend Zakuro Kurumaki invades Sakurashin to capture Rin and convince her to join her in destroying the city with the other yokai hunters as well as Enjin Hiizumi, the main antagonist of the series. Akina Hiizumi and the other members of the Hiizumi Life Counseling Office take action to save Rin, 'tune' the yokai controlling Zakuro and protect the city.

The story for this OVA is mostly focused on Rin and a bit of her background story.

It covers the weird time gap between episodes 8 and 9 of Hana no Uta, so that's when I watched it, and it seems to be the perfect timing plot wise to watch it, as I imagine if you watched this before watching Hana no Uta, then it would be hard to grasp the characters and such as they are only very briefly explained or mentioned in this OVA.

Preliminary (2/3 eps)
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!

Story 8/10
