    Thread to discuss Fall 2018 anime Irozuku Sekai no Ashita kara by P.A. Works. Directing it is Toshiya Shinohara (previously directed Red Data Girl, Nagi no Asukara, & Kuroshitsuji), with Yuuko Kakihara in charge of series composition (previously worked on Chihayafuru S2, Aikatsu! Stars & Aikatsu! Friends).

    Summary: 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. (via Amazon)

    Cast:
    • Kaori Ishihara as Hitomi Tsukishiro
    • Sumi Shimamoto as Kohaku Tsukishiro
    • Shoya Chiba as Yuito Aoi
    • Kana Ichinose as Asagi Kazano
    • Nao Touyama as Kurumi Kawai
    Past the first episode, please hide episode-specific and story details under the spoiler tag.

    Irozuku is nice. It's nothing spectacular but it is comfy. The fantasy elements are light but add a dash of charm that feels reminiscent of Ghibli movies like Howl's Moving Castle and Kiki's Delivery Service, maybe even Harry Potter in a way. Character designs are great, especially Hitomi and Kohaku. Oh and I almost forgot the really pretty backgrounds and abstract sequences that have that distinct style. The last few episodes had lots of them if I remember correctly and they were fantastic.

    I'm curious as to how the rest of the story will play out. What do you guys think? I can't tell if it's going to escalate into anything or not.

    I think it'll inevitably escalate; the whole "color" problem seems perfectly set up for the emotional climax when Hitomi finally recovers her abilities, although of course since she's already recovered them once temporarily, maybe the show will sort of counter that and have her doubt that she's recovered it, until the confirmation finally comes. Personally I find the romance aspect strange; I don't know how everyone feels about this, but while my understanding is that P.A. shows can't do without romance, this one seems to be making it relatively secondary, or at least weave it together with other elements in such a way that it doesn't feel overly important.
