Planetarian is a visual novel written by Key, who is also well known for Air and Clannad. The anime was finally released in July 2016, 10 years after the original visual novel was released. The anime had 5 episodes, and in September of the same year the movie Planetarian ~ Hoshi no Hito ~ hit the cinemas.
This time, the screening will utilize a real-life planetarium to show a reconstructed story of Planetarian. The highlight will be the scene where Yumemi Hoshino explains the starry sky. Without wanting to spoil anything, that scene that has a special place in the hearts of fans, will be shown using the whole ‘sky’ in the planetarium as a canvas. Even though people know the story, this is a must-see for fans, since there are new recordings included with content one shouldn’t miss!
When Suzuki Keiko finished recording, she sent a small comment:
‘I recorded my parts with the feeling of Yumemi being really in the hall and explaining the stars to the viewers while looking at different parts of the video myself. Even after I was done, there are things like music, the timing of my talk and how it should sound overall, so there were many adjustments to make. I am thankful that I could be one of the members that make this work possible. Whenever I walk around town I look at the stars, even if they are small, and I call the names of stars or star constellations that I remember or look at where the stars are right now or just plainly look at one star and think “Tonight we can see them, so beautiful!” With that, it’s really a lot of fun to look at stars, but this time during the commentary, I thought many times “Is it really like that?” and found new things I can look for in the night sky.’
