Yoichi and Harukichi's Conflict

Yoichi have gotten a job at the university outside Japan. Yoichi wanted to study in Japan, but in Japan, there were little positions to study UMA and so on. Yoichi hesitated to go abroad. But his family, his wife Terumi, and his daughter, Hikaru, cheered up to go. Because they also live their lives. But Yoichi's father, Harukichi, is an old type person. So he thought a family should live together. Then Harukichi blamed Yoichi. Harukichi is not a bad person. He just thought about Terumi and Hikaru.

The Reason Yoichi Come Home on July 7th

Maybe Yoichi belongs to a university in the US. July 7th is on a summer vacation. So he can come back to Japan.

The Star Festival

The Star Festival is based on a Chinese and Japanese legend.
The legend is from the fact that Altair and Vega , which are separated by the Milky Way, have a reunion once a year.
Yoichi's coming home story is derived from this legend.

LaLa's birthday

July 7th is also LaLa's birthday. Because LaLa is Cure Milky that comes from the Milky Way. And the Milky Way is associated with the Altair and Vega's legend.

July 7th is a reunion day. Hikaru reunions her father, Yoichi. But a person who can't have a reunion. Uni is her name. Her old folks at home is still petrified. What do you think about the day of reunions, Uni?
