Irozuku Sekai no Ashita kara (First Impression)
“Set in the city of Nagasaki, the story takes place in a world where a minuscule amount of magic remains in everyday life. Hitomi Tsukishiro is a 17-year-old descendant of a witch family who grew up with stale emotions, as she lost her sense of color at a very young age. Feeling sorry for her granddaughter’s future, Kohaku, a great witch, sends Hitomi to the past, the year 2018. Through exchanges with her 17-year-old grandmother and her club members, the story follows Hitomi’s growth as a person.” -MAL News
Wow. I can’t believe I waited this long to actually start this one. The artwork and animation are easily the best of the season. The story is told, quite literally, through the eyes of Hitomi. The art flips frequently from a colorful image to grayscale because of Hitomi’s condition. But when she sees Aoi’s drawings and her world is filled with each stroke that Aoi had drawn with his tablet. The wonderful change in art style, through Hitomi’s perspective, makes the audience feel the same excitement that she feels. The excellent composition of characters, art, and sound all come together to make a very exciting and powerful show.
Irozuku Sekai no Ashita kara is an enchanting and charming story that gives magic a whole new meaning. I really encourage this anime, you’ll get lost in the story within the first episode. The story is shaping up to be an emotional one and I’ve already got the ice cream and tissues ready!
