"A story, we meet one day in spring, and fall in love in spring breeze"
-Memories, which is pilling like falling cherry petals, fill up our heart with warmer feeling than the spring sunlight-

Story:
It's a story about the main character, you, who are studying at Seigetsu Academy. Your childhood friends, Kanata and Suzuya, also studying at Seigetsu Academy because all of you love to see stars since you were kid. Although Seigetsu Academy is a full boy school and you're the only girl, but you're not afraid since Kanata & Suzuya always be with you to protect you. One day, there is a student transferred into the academy, it's a bit weird since it's almost the end of the semester. Apparently the transfer student is one of your childhood friend also, Yoh.

Since Yoh come, you will experience new things. Yoh will come into your friendship and it will annoy Kanata because usually it's only three of you do anything together, but in the same time Yoh also feel left out because he thinks that he couldn't go inside the circle. Then, Suzuya also a little bit agitated because Yoh is always blunt about his feeling towards you, but he only can keep silent and hold back. Not only Suzuya, Kanata also feel the same thing but Kanata has his own way to express his feeling, usually Kanata will bluntly showing his jealousy.

Now, it's your choice to have a ending with one of your childhood friend. Help them free from their unease feeling and know them more. Love is blooming in spring.


Review :
I played this game quite a long time ago, it's around early of last year. I was really excited about this game because the graphic is so nice and i really love their story-theme, it's about a star, horoscope, astronomy, etc. Then, i had a chance to play this game, what could i say is i adore this game.

For the story-line, i think it's just a story about love in high school, which is warm and light. The story is more to the friendship and how the main character help the boys from their problem. I think it also teach us about what's the real friend are. Another thing that i love from Starry Ski in Spring is there are character voices, i really love game with voices because it makes the story more lively and interesting, moreover the voice are in japanese. Anyway, i love Yoh's CV, it makes me melt every time i hear his voice. And I also love their background music, it's very lovely. Not only that, it also has sound effects.

Like the other PC visual or otome game, Starry Sky in Spring also provide skip, auto and save buttons. They also gives shortcut, it's really convenient although i never use the shortcut. More importantly, they also provide auto save, it will automatically save before you choose the answer. It's really convenient ! About the ending, i think the answer are quite obvious, i mean it's a simple options that you may know which one is the right one in one second. I think so..  If i have to put these three characters in my life, i will choose Yoh as my boyfriend, Suzuya as my brother and Kanata as my best friend. hahaha, actually i really like Suzuya, but he always give the feeling to protect like a brother, so i go for Yoh instead. XD~

Overall, i really love this game, i mean everything in this game. I suggest to play all the characters, because all of them has their own uniqueness and story. I'm never get bored to play this game. Anyway, i'm waiting for the rest of english patch of Starry Sky series (Summer, Autumn and Winter) and their After Story plus their sequel. I heard there're a translation group who're working on Starry Sky in Summer or Autumn, and currently they're searching for the translator. *sigh* now i really feel that i'm stupid for not studying Japanese seriously.
