Stargazing: Toumei na Tsubasa - Ohara Yuiko

It is sad news when a contributor to the anime we know and love suddenly passes away. Shimada Michiru of the Little Busters! and Little Witch Academia writing teams was unfortunately announced deceased by her daughter on her Twitter account as of yesterday, and I'd personally like to take this moment to thank her for helping construct such memorable shows, including the two aforementioned series along with one I always had a soft spot for, Shugo Chara!.

Let us all share tonight's song in special memory, as it is a beautiful song with beautifully simple visuals if you catch it in Little Witch Academia's second season itself. May Shimada Michiru rest in peace, and may we continue to remember her great work.
