The main characters of "Searchin' for My Polestar" are seven friends that met at college while in the astronomic observation club "Sagittarius." Being in the club was just an excuse for them to go to the beach in summer, and skiing in winter. Actually, the only time they ever observed any stars was at summer camp during their senior year.

Dreaming of a bright future, the seven exchange vows for eternal friendship. However, over the next several years, their busy schedules cause them to begin drifting apart.

It's been three years since that summer when they laughed together gazing at the stars. Will their friendship continue to drift farther and farther apart? Or will they manage to strengthen their friendship again? --Fuji TV

At first, it may seem like another St. Elmo's Fire clone; compare to Ai to iu Nano Moto ni. But here the characters are younger and more hard-edged; there's also the presence of an eighth character, in this case Hasegawa Kyoko, who plays an interesting role. Watch it if you haven't seen Ai.. , you'll see a tremendous cast whose moves and actions aren't overspent at all. -Surge79uwf
