This show will take us through those star-crossed days of youth, apparently.
Earlier today, fans flocked to the TBS Anime Festa fan event. During the presentation, a new trailer and visual, as well as a premiere window were revealed for Kazuki Akane’s anime, titled Hoshiai no Sora (Star-Crossing Skies). An official website was also opened to celebrate the news.
We break the details down below.
The four-minute trailer pans over the numerous visuals that have been released to date, along with several new illustrations and animation tests. The trailer cuts to finished animation at the 1:10 mark. At 1:44, character dialogue kicks in to deliver a brief story tease, before closing on the new key visual.
The new visual feaures two teen boys, standing back to back on a tennis court. They’re both dressed in uniform and holding rackets.
Hoshiai no Sora will air on TBS and other stations in 2019.
Kazuki Akane (Birdy the Mighty: Decode, Vision of Escaflowne) is directing the project and taking charge of series composition at studio 8-Bit. Yūichi Takahashi (Comet Lucifer, FLCL Alternative) is in charge of character designs for the project.
Other confirmed crew members include:
- Original Character Designs: Itsuka
- Animation Director: Yūichi Takahashi
- Scene Design: Miki Takeshita
- Art Director: Shiori Shiwa
- Sound Director: Jin Aketagawa

The series will focus on children going through puberty, and the drama that the time entails.
