Starry Sky (more commonly spelled Starry☆Sky) is an Otome Game developed by Honeybee in 2009 for PC platform.

In this game, you are Tsukiko Yahisa (or whichever name you want, actually), the first and only female student to enroll in Seigatsu Academy, an astronomy school. The series features 12 good looking young men (3 per game), each of them representing an astrology sign. So far, four games have been released, each named after a season:

  • Starry Sky ~in Spring~ (released March 27, 2009): Capricorn, Pisces and Cancer
  • Starry Sky ~in Summer~ (released June 26, 2009): Taurus, Scorpio and Sagittarius
  • Starry Sky ~in Autumn~ (released September 25, 2009): Gemini, Leo and Libra
  • Starry Sky ~in Winter~ (released December 25, 2009): Aquarius, Aries and Virgo

A 5th game, "After Spring", has been announced for August 27, 2010 and will feature the ~in Spring~ cast. An anime adaptation was released on December 23, 2010. There are more planned, one "After X"-game for each season.

Each character has his own Drama CD, which were released throughout the year 2009. Japanese only. There is now a Starry Sky Character sheet which has just been added.

Tropes used in Starry Sky include:


  • Audio Erotica: The Drama Cds.
  • Adaptation Distillation: Ten minutes per episodes, twenty minutes per route. You see where this is going.
    • Possibly justified, since the anime is likely treated as an advertisement for the games, which are just there to give more context to the Drama CDs.
    • Which maybe makes it some form of Adaptation Expansion as well. Well, the "expansion" part of the trope.
  • Anguished Declaration of Love: Every love interest in the series.
  • Anime Accent Absence: Yoh, despite having spent most of his childhood in France, uses a flawless and remarkably precise Japanese, and can even get witty at times.
  • Babies Ever After: After Spring.Kanata's ending.
    • Invoked again in Homare's route in After Summer.
    • ...and yet again in the Seiza Danna Drama CDs! Specifically, at the end of Suzuya's Seiza Danna.
    • There's Miyaji's Seiza Danna too.
  • Big Eater: Yoh.
  • Beware the Nice Ones Suzuya
  • Bland-Name Product: At one point Heegan-Dazs shows up in the anime.
  • Dead Little Sister: Iku Mizushima, after the death of his twin sister, he ended up losing his trust in everyone.
  • Can't Hold His Liquor: Tsukiko's teacher Haruki Naoshi gets hyper pretty fast when he had some liquor. And the school nurse, Hoshizuki Kotarou, falls asleep after having too much.
  • Cast Full of Pretty Boys: What's an otome game without it?
  • Did They or Didn't They?: Suzuya's route in After Spring.
  • Dogged Nice Guy: Every one of her 12 love interests.
  • Every Boy Is Cuter With Hair Decs: Both Miyaji and Tsubasa.
  • Hidden Eyes: Tsukiko in the original four, finally averted in After and the anime.
  • Fan Translation: An anonymous group called Oge released a full English fan translation of Starry Sky in Spring during December 2010.
  • Gratuitous English: The series' subtitle itself.
