Earlier today, the official Hoshiai No Sora (Star-Crossing Skies) anime website updated with a new key visual and teaser trailer. We break the details down below.
The 90-second promo cuts between landscapes, before finally resting on an outdoor tennis match. From here, character dialogue between the various members of a school tennis team drive the main story beats. All the while, a piano-heavy melody plays in the background.
