The storyline of Koisuru Asteroid is simplicity itself … the growing friendship of two girls who had met once before and have a new chance at deepening their love for each other as they work through high school.  So simple that the series needs a supporting cast to sustain the central premise.   Possibly a smart move, if the additional characters do not clutter the story with their own goals and interests. Let’s get to the core.  Mira met Ao one evening as both were star-gazing.  Mira was impressed at Ao’s depth of knowledge about astronomy and learned that while there was a star called Mira, there is no astronomical body named Ao.  Finding an asteroid and giving it the name Ao would be nice.  Mira left with the mistaken impression that Ao was a boy.  Years later, Mira and Ao met at a meeting of their high school’s science club.  Shocker one: Ao is a girl.  Shocker two:  The science club is a reorganized club formed from the union of the Astronomy and Geology Clubs. This brings together all the tiny strands which weave together this rather fragile plot.  The mutual distrust of the separate clubs presidents, Mikage and Monroe, who worry first about the proportions of astronomy vs. geology-types in the club membership.  Suzu, who is Mira’s old friend worried about the new friend in Ao.  Finding field trips and activities which cater to both fields of discipline.  The shy and unconfident Mai who becomes president of the club after Mikage and Monroe’s graduation.  So much trivial dressage connected to the main goal of the story.  Find that asteroid and name it Ao.  The destiny of the world is in the offing. No wait!  No, it’s not. That’s the problem with Asteroid in Love.  All the episodes are developed upon vignettes, tidy little stories within stories.  Example:  Suzu and Ao have a best friend contest at the beach, Mira and Mikage visit a geological display, the club meets on how to present their club at the cultural festival.  One episode with three story thrusts.  Confusing at best, making viewing the whole series a challenge.  Thank God for the mid-series recap … though it confused me. At episode eleven, we are on the edge of either Mira and Ao discovering their asteroid … or not.  Anime does not guarantee success stories.  The ending of Chidori High R.S.C. is a fine example of ending on a downer.  You hope for the best for these two girls, but then you don’t know if you want the happy ending, or are just glad that the series will be done. Ah, but kudos for the animation.  Those eyes of Mira ... reflections of the cosmos!
