In a world in the future where magic is still a part of everyday life, 17-year-old Hitomi Tsukishiro, a descendant of a family of mages, lost the ability to see colors when young and has grown up into a girl devoid of emotion. Concerned for her future, Hitomi's grandmother Kohaku decides to send her back through time to the year 2018, where she discovers a world where vivid colors spring forth.
At first, I was taken aback by the quality of the animation, the contrast and the plot. Time travel! Drama! Magic! Meh, it was really a letdown. The animation was actually poor in many scenes, the story was poorly executed, and mainly, Hitomi and Aoi are autistic. "grew up lacking emoction", but she grieves for her dead mother.... I just love how the show which I most anticipated, turned out this worse, or maybe it happened that way because i expected too much. Of course, i would expect a well made steak in a 5 star restaurant, not a 1 dollar cup noodle. It turned out so much worse that I actually am writing this review while I am supposed to be studying for my exam tomorrow. This anime was supposed to make me cry? Yes indeed the last episode was kinda emotional, but there was almost no connection between Hitomi and the other characters from the past. Here is why, Hitomi was acting like the edgy autistic kid, so that all the characters will care her like a baby. Hell even Aoi is the same. At the first glance one can tell who is going to end up with who. That's as easy as playing chess with a kindergarten kid. The chain holding all the characters was not that tight, thus the break of the chain in the last episode didn't have much impact as everyone expected. Of course one can cry by just watching the last episode only without knowing what is happening or the plot. It's that disconnected. Many people may enjoy this show,and watch just for the last episode. Its like "I can't understand English, but I watch fast and furious because i like cars!" TL:DR, The buildup for the last episode was poorly done. And this whole love thing also made me think that my high school life was actually not that bad. There is like this love triangles or squares, except that Hitomi and Aoi are alien to love, as if they are on a whole different world than others, that's how edgy they were. Finally, this is just my opinion, and many people aside me enjoyed this show, so I reccomend you read other reviews too, and decide it yourself. If you are new to emotional drama shows then this can make you cry, but if you are a vertan, then you will find many flaws from this show which will ruin the watch.
A gorgeous tale about a young girl called Hitomi who forgot what it feels like to care for others because her mother walked out on her. Hitomi blames herself for her mother leaving because her mother was the only one in a family of magic users who couldn't use magic. Hitomi's grandmother uses time magic to send Hitomi to a time where the grandmother herself was the same age as her. this is also where Hitomi meets a boy called Aoi who has lost his passion for drawing after his father had passed away. Even though Hitomi can't see colors, she can see color in Aoi's drawings. Not only are they both fascinated by each other, but they also inspire each other. Aoi gets back into drawing and Hitomi starts using magic again. Friendships are formed, magical things are experienced and the show really tries to play with your feels. There are some amazing characters in Iroduku and the world design is pretty awesome. The overall quality of the show is great but I do feel that the magic of the show ran out at the very end.
Wow, I have so many feelings about this anime. I had no idea what to expect going into it, and I was pleasently surprised by it. Is it the best anime out there? I don't think so, but it is most definitely worth the watch, especially with how short it is. There are definitely some loose ends that I wish they could have wrapped up, but others, I'm glad they were left ambigious. Hitomi is a great protaginist, and I'm happy that she had some dimention to her characters. So yes, I do highly recommend you give this a watch!!
