Hoshiai no Sora

Constantly outperformed by the girls’ club, the boys’ soft tennis club faces disbandment due to their poor skills and lack of positive results in matches. In desperate need of members, Toma Shinjou is looking to recruit capable players, but he fails to scout anyone. Enter Maki Katsuragi, a new transfer student who demonstrates great reflexes when he catches a stray cat in his classroom, instantly capturing Toma’s attention. With his interest piqued, Toma ambitiously asks Maki to join the boys’ team but is quickly rejected, as Maki doesn’t wish to join any clubs. Toma refuses to back down and ends up persuading Maki—only under the condition that Toma will pay him for his participation and cover other club expenses. As Maki joins the team, his incredible form and quick learning allow him to immediately outshine the rest of the team. Although this gives rise to conflict among the boys, Maki challenges and pushes his fellow team members to not only keep up with his seemingly natural talent, but also drive them to devote themselves to the game they once neglected. This story focuses on the potential of the boys’ soft tennis club and their discovery of their own capability, while also enduring personal hardships and dealing with the darker side of growing up in middle school.

Review : In the recent past, there have been an influx of media portraying stories in which the characters tackle social issues, some successful, some unsuccessful. Most of them do invoke some sort of emotion from the viewers because at least some of the scenarios in them do have a realistic aspect which people can relate to. Hoshiai no Sora is more of a drama than a sports anime. The sports aspect of the shows is more of a background theme while the core of it portrays how our characters manage the prob…

Review : This review contains spoilers (tl;dr at the end) Since the last year, I have been trying to find that one anime every season. Yeah, maybe you know it: that one who has “Source: Original” in its description, flies under the radar for the most viewers who prefer sequels of the already popular shows, and has a potential to become something unique. Original anime means that you don’t need to try to adapt 50 chapters of the manga or 4 volumes of the light novel into 12-episode format, to create origi…

Review : First off: I really think this show will be the best this season. From deep characters to an enrapturing story, this original has it all. STORY: 9 The story of Stars Align is centered around a middle school boy named Katsuragi Maki. He moves schools and gets convinced by his friend to join the school’s failing soft tennis club because of his athletic ability, despite never playing soft tennis before. From there, it seems like it will become a generic sports/drama, but there is a darker side to t…
