A Bridge to the Starry Skies (Anime)

If you're looking for an anime that has the word "kawaii" all over it, then we suggest "A Bridge to the Starry Skies" (Hoshizora e Kakaru Hashi). It's a pretty nice romantic comedy / harem anime but warn you, it's extremely shonen so expect a lot of "shonen" shots.

"A Bridge to the starry Skies" (Hoshizora e Kakaru Hashi) has only 12 epsiodes. Kazuma Hoshino, the main protagonist in the series, was asked by his parents to move to the countryside with his sickly younger brother, Ayumu.

On their way to Yoruzuyo Inn, where they were prearranged by their father to stay, the brothers got on the wrong bus and were forced to wait for the next ride at a stop. While they were waiting, a monkey playfully steals Ayumu's hat so Kazuma went after the monkey in the forest to retrieve it. He was able to get the hat back but he got lost.

Fortunately, he bumped into Ui Nakatsugawa who was there gathering mountain vegetables. Ui was leading him to the bus stop but as he was right to cross the river, he tripped and accidentally tackled Ui to the ground also unintentionally kissing her as they fall. And so their story begins...

This is a feel-good and entertaining anime and that's all there is to it. I guess what we like about "A Bridge to the Starry Skies" is its setting. We've always dreamt of living in places like the "Yamabiko" in this anime. If we were to live in Japan, we'd choose anywhere in the Ishikawa Prefecture.

Fresh air, Fresh food, peaceful and friendly neighborhood, blue skies, trees, natural playground... heaven!

That's it for now. We end this post with a quote by Dave Singleton: "Understand what each of your triggers are - and learn how to avoid them." =)
