Synopsis

The adventures (and misadventures) of men staring, peeking, glancing, looking, and glaring at women and their efforts to get that extra eyeful of harmlessly exposed panties, bras, and occasional cleavage. Following at most, a few regular males and the outrageous consequences of their actions.

As I contemplate this strange little series, a question pops into my mind. Why would a woman watch a series such as this, a series which is practically built around the idea of the panty flash? And on top of that, why might a woman actually enjoy it? I often find the gratuitous panty flashes that plague many anime series to be annoying, and the thoroughly unrealistic portrayals of women found in anime series can bother me as well. However, when these anime traits are taken to extremes and/or used as parody, then I become interested. It is as if read more

Bad shows don't always stem from a lack of talent. Even the exceptionally talented of directors or artists have created a work which is far bellow their abilities at one time or another. Take director Ryuutarou Nakamura, for example. At his best, his works are powerful, thought-provoking experiences which warrant multiple re-watches. Yet he's had his fair share of busts, as well. One of these came a year after his magnum opus, the mind-bending Serial Experiments Lain, in the form of a screwball social satire. This is Colorful, Ryuutarou Nakamura's satirical take on the over-sexualized voyeurism of modern society and mass media, which can be read more

Overview:

Greetings my friends and happy 2015 to everybody! What better way to celebrate the new year then by looking at the absolute worst anime of the past!? This not only provides laughter and merriment, but allows us to see just how far our beloved medium of animation has come. Today we look at Colorful, an anime that celebrates voyeurism...un-ironically...and isn't funny. It claims to be a high concept satire of the perversion of man and was directed by the Avant Garde director of Serial Experiments Lain. Unfortunately, this was a HORRIBLE execution of satire and no one seemed to "get it" besides the director himself. read more

If you like ecchi humor, Colorful! is for you.
Although this series is very funny at the beginning, the events that take place seem a bit repetitive after a while. After all, it does contain frisky guys that seem desperate for that one upskirt peek or that one wardrobe malfunction.

The art is okay. If you want something totally psychedelic, go for the intermission pieces.

Sound...well, I don't remember anyone really talking? I watched the English and, sure, there was conversation but there wasn't really any developing dialogue that occurred. This goes for the characters as well: they were there but they don't develop like in read more

Golden Boy can be considered as Colorful with a plot and much more variety in humor. Sure, it's still ecchi but there's also a lot more to it than just that. 
reportRecommended by FireReaverX
Both are 6 minutes long with a total length of 16 epsiodes, Both focus on Comedy and Ecchi very heavily, In my opinion more so in Iketeru Futari, they also have an extra genre, In Colorful it's School, in Iketeru Futari it's Romance. Both have quite large casts, although the episodes in Colorful have segments, Iketeru Futari usually revolves around the 2 main characters.

Both anime are crazy, full of expression, action and vulgar jokes.
Also, they have short episodes.

Ecchii-ness , Both touches on awkward topics that makes, u cant help but just laugh. Obvs by the year difference Oretachi is a smoother on the eyes. though imo both decent animes 
reportRecommended by QueueQ
Short episodes involving aroused males who are ogling at female underwear in a comical way. 
reportRecommended by OkarinOfTime
"The Bride Stripped Bare by Her Bachelors" and "Colorful" are works with the focus on the topic of sex, in which they both incorporate uniquely styled hand-drawn animation alongside photographs of real-life.
