Sentai Filmworks to Stream Mitsuboshi Colors Anime in January
posted on by Egan Loo
North American anime distributor Sentai Filmworks announced on Saturday that it has acquired the winter 2018 television anime of Katsuwo's Mitsuboshi Colors manga. The anime will begin streaming exclusively on the HIDIVE service in January.
The manga takes place in a certain corner of a certain park in a certain Ueno area of Tokyo. In this corner exists the secret base of the "justice organization" called "Colors." A group of three elementary school girls lead Colors, and the members of the group roam the park day and night (actually just until evening) to protect the peace of the park.
Tomoyuki Kawamura (Anti-Magic Academy: The 35th Test Platoon, Good Luck Girl!) is directing the anime at the studio Silver Link. Shogo Yasukawa (Hyperdimension Neptunia, Alderamin on the Sky) is handling the series composition, and Takumi Yokota (Pupipō!) is the character designer.
The anime stars Natsumi Hioka as Kotoha, Yūki Takada as Yui, and Marika Kōno as Sacchan. The three voice actresses perform the anime's opening and ending theme songs as their characters in a new unit named "Colors☆Slash."
The 12-episode anime will premiere on January 7. The show will air on AT-X at 10:30 p.m. before airing later on BS11, Tokyo MX, Sun TV, and KBS Kyoto. The show will also stream on AbemaTV in Japan, as well as other streaming services.
