So as to explain some major concepts after seeing the first episode of Kuttsukiboshi. In matters of debate, I was expecting it to be a smooth running 2 episode OVA with normal scenes and a vibrant plot. It starts off with a normal view and introduction of the characters. Like, Kawakami (the first main protagonist) is introduced as a girl with some unique powers, so just as to introduce a character, it’s revealed that she has a major accident during the airstrikes due to which she gets the power to move objects without touching them. As after some time, Saitou Aya (the second main protagonist) is introduced as a normal high school girl leaving no signs of evilness or coldheartness. As the story progresses, Kawakami starts to develop feelings for Aya and eventually falls in love with her. Aya’s view of getting to know about Kawakami liking her is systematic but later on things get pretty inverse as one might not expect them to arose at that stage. Aya has one more secret which Kawakami doesn’t know about (which actually divides this anime into two sub genres).
Later, during Summer Breaks, the shcools are quite silent and lonely as no one wanders around. As both Kawakami and Aya find out that they have developed feelings for each other they make their school as their private meet-place where they meet everyday and make love with each other, though due to this Kawakami becomes pretty touchy with Aya’s feelings as one day when Aya gives her hand made Tangled Stars which she makes for Kawakami and tells her to separate them via. her powers. These Tangled Stars play a very important role further in the series as they tell the future.
Kawakami encounters Aya and her brother Kota having sex with each other. She finds out the secret which she doesn’t know about Aya and it deeply affects her feelings for Aya.
Even though of her feelings for Aya, Deeply shocked and heart broken Kawakami san runs after seeing Aya with her brother. After coming far from Aya’s house she remembers the Tangled Hearts that Kawakami had given her, after taking them out, she gets amazed to find out that there’s only one heart left as a matter of fact that it got separated. Remembering the thing about the Tangled Hearts which actually tell the future, Kawakami realizes that she’s got separated from Aya and also the fact that betrayal can be so astounding within the range of co-incidence.
This episode was one of the most surprising episodes I’ve watched uptil now, to the fact that it takes the story at a certain level and brings out that unexpected twist due to which a certain viewer might get a different reaction. It has some vibrant mix of Shoujo-Ai, Romance, Yuri and Slice of Life. Also the title plays a vital role as well. As it’s rated as R+ , I’m curious about this as what they might bring in the 2nd episode. I’m looking forward for the 2nd episode of Kuttsukiboshi which was to be released during the Spring of 2011, I hope they’ll release it soon.
