Stars Align is available on Hulu and on Funimation’s website.
Everybody loves a comeback story. Someone gets up and fights back when they’re down and against the ropes? That’s inspiring. There’s good reason why basically every sports story uses it to some degree or another.
But to get back up again, you have to get knocked down first.
And the protagonists of Stars Align are some of the most knocked-down, drug-out losers I’ve seen in a story in quite some time.
