Literature / Stellar Ranger Dark Star

Go To

Everyone, throughout the universe, is born with a guiding star. A person's guiding star was there before that person was born, and it will keep guarding, in all likelihood, long after that person's death, when someone new is born to that star. Every being in the universe is tied to their star by a mystical force, present in each living being as their Star Heart, a link empowers and shapes their very soul.

There are a few stars, known as Power Stars, that burn brighter in certain people. These stars give them incredible powers. Some use their powers for good, others evil. In order to combat those who abuse their stellar magic, an organization of people with special powers, known as the Stellar Rangers, was formed, and keeps the peace across the Universe as best it can from those who would attack the Star Hearts of its inhabitants.

June Hespia is Stellar Ranger Dark Star, a new recruit to the organization dedicated to protecting the universe. However, being born under the Nemesis star makes her a Person of Mass Destruction, housing the power of the strongest and more volatile star in existence.

But on the plus side, she gets to be a Magical Girl with a cute girlfriend.


Tropes displayed in Stellar Ranger Dark Star are:

  • Cute Monster Girl: Faye again - being both a bubbly cheerleader and a chimera make her this trope to a T.
  • Dark Magical Girl: Senine.
  • Ditto Aliens: Inverted; a squirrel tells Faye that he thinks all humans look alike.
  • Ensemble Cast: There are a LOT of Stellar Rangers.
  • Full-Name Ultimatum: In chapter 10, Novias gives one to Senine:
    "Brunhilde Hildegarde Nokturne! We put the milk in a glass before we drink it in this house." He said sternly.
  • Good Morning, Crono: The series starts with June in bed as her older brother tries to wake her up before she is late for her first day as a Stellar Ranger.

  • Green Thumb: Cassie can heal plants, and in the first series heals an entire park that was destroyed in the aftermath of a battle.
  • Hidden Depths: Amber behaves like the typical Alpha Bitch cheerleader in public, but is secretly a Wrench Wench.
    The cheerleader looked at herself again in the mirror. So many secrets in her life, what could one more hurt? So many things made her not who she wanted to be. She was not a vapid airhead. She was not nearly as mean as she tried to be. Truth be told, she cared more about cars than she did boys or music or any other things her peers cared about. The thought of being a freak, of being ostracized, however, was deeper than the desire to be herself.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Amber turns out to be this. When she makes Faye cry by demanding to be the cheer captain’s successor in her place, Amber actually hugs her and sincerely apologizes.
  • Loads and Loads of Characters
  • Like Is, Like, a Comma: Amber Septus talks like this:
    "...and, like, I don't see why we should have her, like, around her, like, gaying everything up." Amber said. “Like, Val and Beth both agree? She needs to, like, go. Now.”
  • Magic Idol Singer: Kara.
  • Muggle Best Friend: June's brother, Julian.
  • Performance Artist: Octy fits this, though the trope typically has a Camp Gay character in this role.
  • Sssssnake Talk: Advisor Grim speaks like this:
    “My prinssssse.” He said in a hissing voice. “I musssst protesssst. Thissss plan issss foolish. I can arrange a meeting with the local leader of the Sssstellar Rangersss. That would be FAR more practical.”
  • Your Cheating Heart: Hal is introduced alongside his boyfriend, Jordy. What Jordy isn't aware of is that Hal is also romantically tied to Lanessa.
