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

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.
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.
