Average Rating

Despite the kaleidoscopic magic ingrained in everyday life, Hitomi Tsukishiro's monochrome world is deprived of emotion and feeling. On a night as black and white as any other, amidst the fireworks spreading across the sky, Hitomi's grandmother Kohaku conjures a spell, for which she has been harnessing the moon's light for 60 years, to send Hitomi back in time to the year 2018 when Kohaku was in high school. Hitomi's mission seems unclear, but her grandmother assures her that she will know when she gets there. Following a trip through time aboard a train driven by a strange yellow creature, Hitomi finds herself in stoic artist Yuito Aoi's room, and his drawings flood her world with color. What is Hitomi's purpose there, and why do Yuito's drawings return such breathtaking color to her drab world?

Slow pacing, but it’s pretty and seems to brushstroke on bigger themes like depression. I’m looking forward to know more about this world.


Moral of the story: Art is Magic




Without friends and enjoyable memories life would be dull, but with them you are able to see the world as a colorful place is what I think.


The world of tomorrow looks bright, with vibrant colors and overwhelming passion


Fantastic art. Very slow story but it works and it has some important themes. Talks about depression but isn’t depressing… yet


Beautiful show about getting out of your shell, living in the now and seeing the beauty in the world and yourself. I definitely cried a lot.
