Kazuma and his brother, Ayumu, move from the countryside to the big city. With his urbane cultured ways, Kazuma is popular among the hicks in the countryside and becomes a pimp. He adds the Clumsy Glutton, the Childhood Friend, the Tsundere, the Onee-Sama, the Girly Tomboy, the Spunky Girl, the Reporter Girl, and the Trap to his harem. Gotta catch ’em all.
This was as generic as generic galge adaptations come. The protagonist is a boring loser, who just happens to trip over and accidentally kiss the lead female when he meets her. The first episode was almost funny because of how closely they stuck to the book. I already said all there is to say about the female characters in the last paragraph. To top it all off, the protagonist ends up choosing the most generic of a generic lot.
We have a beach episode, hot springs, shrine maidens, crane games, the whole shebang. The only variation on the usual theme is that the the protagonist’s little brother is hotter than all of the girls.
I’m not really sure why I bothered watching this, since I knew I would hate it from the get-go. Too much time on my hands, I guess. If you’re as sick of bad galge game adaptations as I am, then stay well clear of Hoshizora. I would place it on the lower end of the spectrum in comparison to other shows of its very selective genre.
- Plot / Script – 4 / 10 – Completely generic.
- Characters – 3 / 10 – Copy-pasted stereotypes.
- Production – 6 / 10 – Not the weakest part.
- Overall – F
Recommendations (if you didn’t like Hoshizora) – Sola, True Tears, Kimikiss
Note: I’m still away, and I should be back a week from today.
