On September 16, 2022, the staff for the Blue-ray Disc OVA anime adaptation of Yama Wayama’s Onna no Sono no Hoshi (Hoshi of the Girls’ Garden) comedy manga released a trailer and key visual hyping its release on December 8, 2022. The Blu-ray Disc is bundled with a special edition of the manga’s third volume.

The trailer animates much of what happens in the first chapter of the manga. The story begins when the teacher of an all-girls high school, Hoshi, becomes stumped while playing picture Shiritori with his class through the daily class journal.

Shiritori is a Japanese word chain game in which players are required to say a word which begins with the final kana of the previous word, or in this case, draw a picture that represents the word.

One of his students draws a picture, which is obviously Hoshi-sensei, which means the word begins with “Ho” and ends in “i”. But in order to keep playing the game, Hoshi has to figure out what the end of the word is. He ends up thinking it might be a celebrity before a fellow teacher finally clues him in on the joke.

You can watch the trailer on Shodensha’s official YouTube channel here:
