The fall 2019 original anime series Hoshiai no Sora, aka Stars Align, had a solid run during its original simulcast where Funimation also brought out a simuldub for it. With the Funimation catalog being brought over in various chunks, this show has now made it to the service today with both its simulcast side and the simuldub side so viewers can pick their version.

It was produced with studio 8-Bit as a new original work with Kazuki Akane directing it and writing the scripts while Yuichi Takahashi is working on the character designs based on Itsuka’s original work. Takahashi is also serving as the animation director for the project as well.
