"Starlight" - the story of a distant star, from long ago, and in the far future.
Two girls, who were struck by the glimmer of the stage in this play, exchanged their destinies.
"Two people's stars, waiting on stage."

To burn out ordinary fun and joy and fulfill our destinies.
A destiny to become a blast furnace at just five years old.

-- What a danger.

Eventually the two will meet again.
One continues to stand on the stage of tragedy, the other jumps in, separates, jumps into, rewrites their destinies... and creates a new chapter full of light.

No girl has ever had her eyes burned by or fallen from the tower, nor has she ever been imprisoned.
Then... what is the end of that new chapter?

"Starlight" is a story of an unknown author.
No one knows where the glimmer comes from and where it goes.
Nor do they know who is "starring" in this story.

But, I want to see it.

Hey -- Karen Aijo, a third-year student at Seisho Music Academy?[1]
