The winter 2018 anime series Mitsuboshi Colors has saw a good run of streaming overseas and a home video release by Sentai Filmworks. While Sentai saw it get a bilingual release, the show is one that didn’t have its trailer streamed, unfortunately. That’s been fixed with this and it’s a good time to step back just a couple of years and remember the release which is still in print and available for streaming on HIDIVE.
The manga by Katsuwo began in 2014 in Monthly Comic Dengeki Daioh and has had eight volumes to its name after wrapping up earlier this year.
Check out our review of the series.
The anime adaptation was directed by Tomoyuki Kawamura based on the series composition by Shogo Yasukawa. Takumi Yokota handled the character designs with Silver Link producing the animation.
Japanese cast includes Yuuki Takada as Yui, Marika Kouno as Sacchan, Natsumi Hioka as Kotoha, Atsushi Tamaru as Saitō, Kaori Nazuka as Sacchan’s Mother, Ayaka Asai as Nonoka, Tesshō Genda as Old Man, and Hisako Tōjō as Momoka.
The original work has three volumes to its name since starting in the summer of 2014.
Plot concept: This world has lots of problems, but after doing grown-up things all day, adults never have the time or energy to fix them! Kids, on the other hand, have LOTS of energy and lots more free time as well. That’s why Yui, Sat-chan and Kotoha, three elementary school girls who live in Ueno, have formed COLORS, a secret organization that protects their town from whatever real or imagined menace happens to catch their attention. A monster cat who’s also a cat burglar? They’re on the case! A horrible surplus of bananas? They’ll sell the case! And a bomb that needs diffusing? Well, they might need a little help on that one, just in case! The local cop might think they’re a nuisance, but everyone else can sleep better tonight knowing these three heroines are saving the world in MITSUBOSHI COLORS!
