I streamed this sucker
Here we have- Kuttsukiboshi which means something like Lesbians Intertwined or some shit like that. This is how watching this show went for me
should I watch this?
It's only 2 episodes
is they fuckin?
Went down just like that, and here's ya boy Wiru-sans take on it!
In an un-named apparently all girl academy we have our protagnist Kiiko Kawakami who is special, not because she likes girls but because she likes girls AND has telekinesis. How she got it, I don't know probably in a car crash or something cliche' like that. This is a secret though and she gotta keep it on the low low
We can't let them know our secret....
Enter her pal Aya who is the only one who knows of her power
Ha! I bet you thought they were fucking....not yet
Of course after some long testing Kiiko gets tired and Aya and her go to rest under this tree and this is when Kiiko sees the sleeping Aya
control your yuri urgers! Statutory aint worth it
Oh it's ok her yuri sensed your presence
This embarks them on a quest of yuri love and lust, mostly lust. This anime is pretty fucked up, with themes ranging from Yuri, Incest, Rape, and Telekinesis. Those should probably never be added together but they are for Kuttsukiboshi. Now the story is bland as all hell but I actually wanted to see the problems the characters faced resolved. This is a Yuri fest & nothing more nothing less. (That rhymed :)
This anime gets a worthy mention because it was written, directed, and animated by one guy, Naoya Ishikawa. The first episode was even sold at Comiket. Although it's just lesbian smut it looks better than some shows that have a team of people working on it
surprise footjobs, lesbians, incest, explicit sex what else do you need?
What was this show about again? Somebody has powers right?
For this all to be done by one person color me impressed, this still does not make up for the fact that the animation doesn't stand out. This series took two years to finish and honestly doesn't do too bad in the aesthetics department, however it never goes beyond mediocrity
What sound? All I remember hearing was moaning and the occacional "You aren't wearing any panties?"
The ending themes for each episode are generic pop songs uterly skippable and forgettable. The tune doesn't even come to mind,
This story follows Kiiko Kawakami the uke and Aya Saito the seme, strangley enough the uke has the powers.
Kiiko is your normal shy girl with telekinetic powers....Who i'm convinced is a straight up exhibitionsit, either that or Japan is home to many ghost towns.
In comes Aya Saitou. (No pun intended, well maybe) she has the libido of a rabbit on spanish fly. She's usually the one in control and pulling Kiiko into these messed up siuaions, but she knows she likes it right? That can't be healthy for the relationship.
That pretty much explains these characers they aren't very deep if I had to measure it out they'd probably be two knuckles. Although I'm sure they know how many knuckles deep they are
Lesbians Interwined is a two episode romp that leaves you quesioning just what the fuck happened, why it did, and was it worth he two episodes. In short it isn't, but if you are into watching lesbians plucking on the Clitar I guess you could put up wih this show. After all the show gives a pretty good summary of itself
Reccomendation: Skip it
Animes that get this rating aren’t really worth your time. They don’t bring much to the table and frankly should just be skipped. However some of these shows have certain elements that might be worth the watch. There is SOMETHING that can be taken from this although in the end it’s still probably not worth it
I've never written a review on here before, but after watching Kuttsukiboshi, I felt compelled to write one, if for no other reason than to vent my frustrations. This review might be a little jumbled with scattered thoughts, so forgive me, and please bear with me. As this show is super short (roughly 40 mintues long in total), I'm not going to bother to omit spoilers, so be warned.
I'm usually very easy to please; I like shows for what they are, and I accept them despite what they're not. I love a good romance, and I love a good yuri/shoujo-ai. When I stumbled onto Kuttuskiboshi on Anime-Planet, I saw the score, and I thought people were probably a little too harsh on the show. I really wanted to like it... but when I got to the end of the first part, I started to get frustrated, and the frustrations only continued from there.
This story started out SO well. Kiiko had been in some kind of accident, and afterward she discovered she had powers. Aaya found out, and the two began testing Kiiko's powers in secret through experiments. During that time, Kiiko fell hopelessly in love with Aaya. (This is where the show starts.)
I loved most of the first part -- the girls both discovering each other's love, and consumating their relationship. I thought it was really sweet and well done, without being too explicit. I loved the idea that one of them had powers, and those powers were what brought them together. The light supernatural themes were a nice touch, as were the experiments. The star puzzle was a beautiful token, representative of Kiiko's powers and the girls' relationship together.
Unfortunately, the ending of the first part -- Kiiko realizing she forgot her phone at Aaya's, sneaking in, and catching Aaya and her brother Kouta "in the act" -- almost single-handedly ruined the hope I had for this story. I don't think I have anything against incest in anime; Candy Boy is one of my favorite series (maybe I'll do a review on that one in the future?), and that's almost entirely about twin sisters who are a couple. But seeing Aaya's betrayal and apparent duality was just the start.
The second half of the show was very disappointing, to say the least. Aaya kidnaps and pretty much rapes Kiiko for days on end, locked in the shed beside the school field, hoping to win back Kiiko's affection. Eventually, she lets her go, and days later they share one final night of their "greatest hits" before Aaya leaves early in the morning on a plane departing Japan. Kiiko wakes up after their final night together to find that Aaya has already left without saying goodbye, or really explaining much of anything that's happened over the past several days (weeks?). Enraged, she teleports to the plane, where Aaya's having a bit of a breakdown in the toilet, and insists that Aaya stay with her and confess to her about why things have been they way they have been. She finally gets Aaya to admit that her brother had suddenly developed cancer and, as his last dying wish, had begged Aaya to make love to him before he died, which is presumably when Kiiko walked in on them at the end of the first part. After the confession, Kiiko and Aaya teleport away to the beach of a distant planet and remain together forever.
First of all, Aaya should've been up front with Kiiko LONG before she even got the chance to board a plane. Kiiko deserved at least that much. Secondly, kidnapping and rape are NOT the way to win back your former lover's heart. That whole bit just completely tainted everything that came afterward, like the girls' last night together (which otherwise could've been a very bittersweet farewell) or the alien beachside "we'll be together forever" scene.
I loved the animation. The two girls were beautiful, the motions were very smooth, and the show was generally very well drawn and painted. Even when I felt frustrated with the story content, I often found myself very impressed with the quality of the visuals. As I mentioned before in the "Story" section, I thought the scenes involving the girls having sex to be, for the most part, very tastefully done. The only negative point that stands out to me was light beams I recall in one part, which I found very distracting. I don't care for censorship. That's not to say I was pushing for nipples, but every other time in the show that there was nudity, the camera usually provided convenient censoring, usually using the environment or the characters' positions in some way. I just found the light beams a little sloppy, and enough to detract from my appreciation of an otherwise very well-animated production.
The voice acting was great, and I couldn't find anything to complain about as far as that was concerned. The sound effects were mostly good, too. The music was fantastic, especially during the impactful scene where Kiiko teleports to Aaya on the airplane. My only real complaint that I can think of is the kissing sound effects in the first part. I can't really put my finger on it, but something about it felt very off-putting and amateur. Maybe it would've been better omitting the smacking sounds altogether.
Here's where things get dicey. As I said before, I thought Aaya and Kiiko were absolutely beautiful, and wonderful characters at first. I loved how Aaya was the more dominant one and Kiiko was the more reserved one. I loved what little we saw of their friendship, and I loved the relationship that bloomed from it.
However, Kouta just seemed to be there to ruin what could've been an otherwise very sweet story. He contributed nothing good at all to the story, and was only present to develop an apparently very fast-acting cancer, impose upon his sister, and destroy her relationship with Kiiko. I swear he had maybe 6 lines in the entire production, and would've been better for the girls and the story if he had never existed at all. Because of him, Aaya made some awful, awful choices, and caused Kiiko to do the same.
Overall: 5/10 (not an average)
As I said before, I really wanted to like Kuttsukiboshi. I walked in with an open mind and an open heart, ready to love these girls, but the ending to Part 1 (and almost everything that came after) ruined the experience and left a negative lasting impression on me. I wish that things had happened differently. I really do. And it makes me sad that I can't fully appreciate where Kuttsukiboshi ended up taking me.
Okay its very clear that this anime wasn't meant to have a plot. Obviously because its only two episodes and the total time of the whole anime is 45 minutes top. It basically is an anime based on yuri, however for the purpose it was made which is just to show yuri content that had a LITTLE bit of a story, it ticks all the boxes. You can't have a master piece in only two episodes anyways. If you are looking for mild; ecchi with yuri sekkusu, then this anime should do it for you for a very short period of time.
This anime was complete bullshit. I don't understand what the fuck happend at all, the plot twists didn't even make sense.
I actually stumbled onto Kuttsukiboshi (aka Stars That Stick Together) via snippets on a popular video sharing site long before my eyes were opened to the awesomeness that is anime-planet.com. To be honest while it is not good, I find myself willing to give it a pass in some respects due to it being a single person project, I give its creator props for taking an idea and seeing it through to a tangeable product. Anyway, on to the review and be well forewarned this will be rife with spoilers, so if you do not want to know the story then you should watch the show first if possible as it is only a total of 40min long between both parts 1 and 2.
-Spoilers From Here On-
While I give the creator credit for making his desire to tell his story in his way come to pass, the story itself leaves very much to be desired. The exceptionally short form is: Kiiko and Aaya are classmates who develop a sexual relationship during the course of exploring Kiiko's multitude of psychic abilities apparently gained after a car accident that hospitalized her. Their relationship grows and then becomes shattered when Kiiko stumbles upon Aaya and her brother having an intimate encounter only to be rekindled after Aaya kidnaps and sexually assaults (yes, you read that correctly) Kiiko. The pair reconcile as Kiiko uses her powers to intercept Aaya on a plane as she is leaving Japan and then teleports them onto the beach of an alien world the live happliy ever after.
For being a one man project the animation is quite good. Character designs stay consistant and the climax where Kiiko uses her powers to teleport to Aaya on the plane is very well done.
The sound is the sound, it's there it neither adds to nor detracts from what passes for a story.
Kiiko Kawakami - Girl who for some reason that is never explained gains psychic abilities after being involved in a car accident. The full scope of what her abilities are and under what conditions she is able to utilize them is also not explained and by the end of the show she is basically a pseudo-diety.
Aaya Saito - Girl who starts out documenting the range and capabilities of Kiiko's abilities before revealing her attraction to her classmate. She also sleeps with her brother to fulfill his dying wish, and then sexually assaults Kiiko until she wins her affections back.
Kota Saito - Aaya's brother and musician. Is suffering from a terminal brain tumor and his last wish is to have sex with his sister.
Other than the fact that the sky is blue and Aaya and Kiiko are girls, nothing is ever explained and the audience is expected to accept every twist and development with a complete suspension of disbelief. Also, the hyper sexualization of the two female characters combined with the brother sister love scene and make-up rape in the storage locker leave this anime feeling like a nudity free porno more than a cute romantic short story. This is not as bad as School Days since it does not feel like the creator has contempt for the audience, but many of the scenes will leave you feeling very uncomfortable and as such I would not recommend this anime to anyone.
