If only the anime actually applied shading…
Kuttsukiboshi started around August 2010 and before that, we get treated to promising teaser trailers and a story that got the yuri fans excited. Us including. It was, to us at least, one of the most anticipated OVA back then. Another special thing about this OVA is it was all done by one person — Naoya Ishikawa. We will not further go into details of the story or anything else because we might spoil the new viewers.
If we want to say something on one aspect of the OVA, it’d be its production. It’s understandable the quality of the art and animation are somewhat poor given this is a one-man job, but we believe Naoya Ishikawa didn’t put extra heart into his work. Why we say this is the second episode two’s art and animation quality didn’t improve much after a year plus it was kept in the dark. Or he already produced both episodes together and just decided to delay the second episode just to see the reaction of the viewers.
Also if any of you argue about how the story progressed and ended, we’ll just use our “it’s anime” trap card — It’s anime. Shit happens. End of argument! Damn, we’re good.
Anyways, Kuttsukiboshi is, to be honest, a good watch. We love it. Only recommendable to a certain crowd, though.
If you guys know where to get the two songs featured in the anime, please tell us. Our TL loves the second ending theme.
