Myriad Colors Phantom World Blu-ray/DVD to Include Unaired Episode
posted on by Karen Ressler
The 13th and final episode of the anime of Sōichirō Hatano's Myriad Colors Phantom World (Musaigen no Phantom World) novel aired on Thursday accompanied by a commercial for an unaired episode. The episode will be included in the seventh Blu-ray Disc and DVD volume of the anime series, which sill ship on October 10.
The story of the original novel takes place in the near future, in a world born of human imagination. What humans would call ghosts or monsters appear, and they come to be called "phantoms." The main character, Haruhiko Ichijō, is a first year at Hosea Academy along with his upperclassman Mai Kawakami, who fights phantoms with the ability "Spirit of Five Elements," Reina Izumi, who has the ability "Phantom Eater," and Koito Minase, who fights phantoms in solitude. They experience the ups and downs of high school life before a certain incident leads them to the truth of this world.
Tatsuya Ishihara (The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya, Love, Chunibyo & Other Delusions!, Sound! Euphonium) directed the series at Kyoto Animation, and Kazumi Ikeda (Clannad television anime, second Kanon television anime, Love, Chunibyo & Other Delusions!) designed the characters and served as chief animation director. Shirabi provided the original illustrations for Hatano's novel. Fumihiko Shimo (Kokoro Connect, Infinite Stratos, Clannad) handled series composition, and EFFY composed the soundtrack.
