With a new anime season just starting, there's a plethora of new shows to catch up on. Hoshiai No Sora wasn't a show that was on my radar, because to be honest high school sports anime are hardly really my thing. Watching a show about high schoolers being really really passionate about sports just isn't relatable to me. But I was bored, so I just decided "why not?" after seeing a few recommendations. And boy, am I glad I decided to check this show out.

tl/dr: Hoshiai No Sora is a high school sports anime that touches on some pretty dark topics in a fairly realistic manner. It balances kids being kids and enjoying their sports club with some unsettling plotlines about their home lives really well. It's also available to watch on Hulu, with new episodes coming out every Thursday.
