my mortal enemy
#6 Otomo no Yakamochi
If I see that bridge

This poem from the Hyakunin Isshu (and as referenced in the infamous cellphone scene between Arata and Chihaya in episode 23) was written about the two deities Orihime and Hikoboshi. Orihima and Hikoboshi are represented by the stars Vega and Altair respectively (there’s even a Japanese star festival celebrating these two, called Tanabata.) According to legend, the Milky Way separates these lovers, and they are allowed to meet only once a year.
And according to our revered Hyakunin Isshu expert Kana-chan: “The ‘misty bridge of magpie feathers’ spanned the river of stars, which separated Orihime and Hikoboshi, so the bridge brought them together.”
In a scene from the aforementioned episode, Arata is seen looking up to the night sky, sighing, and then walking away. As he walks away the camera pans up to the night sky where we can clearly see the star-crossed lovers in their star forms, Vega and Altair.
Therefore I think it’s safe to conclude, Chihaya and Arata are written in the motherfuckin’ stars.
