A Bridge to the Starry Skies

30 minutes

Kazuma Hoshino is a young student who, in the company of his younger brother Ayumu, move from undisclosed urban Japan into the rural city of Yamabiko. On their way to Yorozuyo Inn, where they are prearranged to lodge, the boys get on the wrong bus, forcing them to wait out the next ride at a stop. Lounging around and passing time, a wild monkey mischievously steals Ayumu's hat, and an upset Kazuma gives chase into surrounding forest. Minutes pass, and though scuffed and worn, Kazuma is able to recover the hat to the realization that he is lost. Ui Nakatsugawa, a schoolgirl, happens upon Kazuma and happily leads him in the direction of the bus stop, skipping across a river he'd passed earlier with ease. Encouraged by her to do the same, Kazuma lands wrong, causing him to tackle Ui to the ground with a kiss. Having been seen and scolded by her friend Ibuki Hinata, Kazuma leaves, disheartened that his time with Ui was momentary. The following day, having moved into their room at the inn, Kazuma and Ayumu head to their new school, Yamabiko South Academy. Much to his surprise, it is during his introduction to the class that Kazuma meets Ui and Ibuki again.

Sitting with the boys at breakfast, Senka informs Kazuma that as the winner of the Hikonan Race, he is to play the Ogami[a] in the upcoming festival's Futagoyama ceremony. Though reluctant, he agrees. On his way to school, Daigo encourages him to use the opportunity to get with Tsumugi, the Megami,[b] and by extension, the prettiest girl in town. Ibuki happily catches up to them as Ui bashfully approaches; a silence drawn between herself and Kazuma. Class over for the day, Ui and Kazuma go to the shrine to practice for the ceremony in awkward silence. Having sensed something during dress rehearsal, Tsumugi discusses Ui's recent behavior around Kazuma with her; despite Ui's efforts to cover up and derail the topic, Tsumugi finds it to be nothing short of love. The day of the ceremony arrives. As the girls put on their costumes, Tsumugi collapses and complains of abdominal pain, asking Ui to take her place as the Megami. Kazuma is driven on a float to one end of a bridge above the iconic stream. In the distance, Ui is wheeled to the other side of the bridge. Caught off guard and with nowhere to go, Kazuma gazes at her speechless as the town stares in awe. His emotions build to an unbearable level, and deviating from the plan, shouts at the top of his lungs that he is in love with her. Following some persuasion from Ibuki, Ui reciprocates. That evening, an afterparty is held at the inn. In the back, Ibuki and Madoka come to terms with being rejected, as Kazuma and Ui kiss under the Milky Way.
