When will the sequel to the anime “Stars Align Season 2” be released?
This is not to say that the “Stars Align” anime is the highest rated sports series. At the same time, many critics emphasize that the disclosure of the experiences and inner world of each character allows the viewer to think and rethink a lot. And this is the great value of any project.
At the moment, there is no information that the season 2 of the series will be released, but there is no talk of closing the project. We are waiting for official statements.
The soft tennis club is going through hard times. Toma Shinjo is the captain of a tennis club, but with the team he has a complete mess. Most guys do not want to strain, they do not worry about losses and the fate of the club as a whole. But Shin is a different matter. The future of the club is his personal pain. In the summer, after the tournament, the club will be closed if they show poor results – and this thought drives the guy crazy. But the appearance in the class of Maki Katsuragi changes the matter. It turns out that Toma has known the newcomer since childhood.
Katsuragi is in great shape. It remains only to persuade him to join the club and perform in the summer tournament. But bad luck – Katsuragi did not like this idea at all. After the persecution by Toma, Maki agrees to join the club, but on one condition – he must be paid. After all, this will not be entertainment for the guy, which means that let it be work. In response to such conditions, Toma unexpectedly agreed.
Now Maki will train hard. But it’s not that simple. Indeed, in the fate of adolescents in their personal lives there are problems, grievances, secrets, pain of the past … Will sports help to heal mental wounds? Or, on the contrary, emotional experiences will awaken sports anger, which will turn into a long-awaited victory for the team?
