Celestial Method is a heartwarming anime series that debuted in 2014. The show revolves around the life of Nonoka Komiya, a young girl who returns to her hometown, Lake Kiriya, after seven years of absence. Nonoka is greeted by her childhood friends, Yuzuki Mizusaka, Koharu Shiihara, and Souta Mizusaka, who tell her about a bizarre phenomenon that has been occurring in Lake Kiriya.

Every year on the day of the Tanabata festival, a mysterious saucer appears in the sky, and strange things begin to happen. The saucer disappears after the festival, and the town returns to its normal state. However, this year things are different. The saucer mysteriously appears again, and the townspeople start to notice odd changes.

Nonoka and her friends soon learn that the saucer is connected with a girl named Noel, who claims to have met Nonoka seven years ago. She also claims to have a mission to fulfill, but she cannot do it alone. The girls must work together and solve the mystery of the saucer to help Noel fulfill her mission and save Lake Kiriya.

Throughout the series, the characters undergo significant growth and development as they face both physical and emotional challenges. Nonoka, in particular, struggles with guilt and regret regarding her past actions, and she must come to terms with her faults and forgive herself. Yuzuki, on the other hand, must confront her feelings of jealousy and inferiority towards Noel, who has taken up her position as class representative since her absence.

The show also explores themes of adolescence, friendship, and the importance of memories. The girls cherish their fond memories of the past but must learn to accept and move on from the painful ones. They also learn to appreciate the present and make lasting memories with each other.

The animation and art style of Celestial Method are stunning, with vibrant colors and detailed backgrounds that capture the beauty of Lake Kiriya. The character designs are unique and memorable, with each girl sporting her own distinct hairstyle and clothing.

The music of the series is equally as impressive, with a beautiful soundtrack that perfectly complements the emotional tone of the show. The opening and ending theme songs, "Stargarden" and "Sora no Method," respectively, are both catchy and heartwarming, further adding to the show's overall charm.

Overall, Celestial Method is a touching and engaging anime series that is sure to tug at the heartstrings of viewers. The show's themes of friendship, adolescence, and accepting oneself resonate with audiences of all ages, making it a must-watch for anyone looking for a heartwarming and inspiring story.
