Seven Seas Entertainment has revealed the license acquisition of the self-contained BL manga Only the Stars Know by Nagisa Furuya. Known originally as Hoshi dake ga Shitteru, it was serialized beginning in 2016 in Rutile for Gentosha Comics.

Plot Concept: After suffering a loss both at work and in his personal life, college student Sora feels crushed. A stiff night walk to process his thoughts leads him to a discovery: a handsome man sitting in a secluded spot in the park that’s perfect for stargazing. Sora and the man start chatting, and he feels comfortable enough to start talking about his problems–but he’s still stunned when the man kisses him! Although Sora initially writes off the night as an unexpected connection with a stranger, this isn’t the last he’ll see of the man who stares up at the sky.
