The official website for the STARMYU anime began streaming a promotional video for the STARMYU in Halloween original video anime (OVA) on Wednesday. The video previews the opening song "Horizon."

The OVA will ship on Blu-ray Disc and DVD on October 24 after a delay from its originally planned release on October 10. The release will bundle a four-panel manga by Ren Aokita and a CD with a drama and songs from the anime. The anime will tell a story about Hoshitani and friends on Halloween, and it will feature a music video for the song "Storytellers." The ending song will be "DEAR DREAM!," and other songs in the anime will include "Pumpkin Mate♪" and "Wanna be Scream?"

New student Yuta Hoshitani dreams of being in show business, but to get there he'll have to gain acceptance from the Kao Kai (Cherry Blossom Flower Association), Ayana Academy's three highest ranking students. For Yuta and his friends to get into the music department, they'll have to get into the Star Frame class, which is taught by the Kao Kai members. Though the newcomers are struggling, they catch the interest of one of the Kao Kai members, which just might send them on the starlit journey they've been dreaming of!
