The "Colors" are three cute little girls who hang out together and say they're protecting the peace of their city. They have lots of fun together, doing stuff like playing games, solving puzzles, and going to the zoo. This anime follows their largely happy daily life.
I made this early review because I feel this anime is clearly underappreciated in MAL, as it only had 7.18 rating by 2070 members at the time this review is writen. So, I encourage anyone who have not watch this gem to just try watching the 1st episode, i am sure you will want more.
Story: The story is about 3 cute girls having adventure around their city. They create Colors team with the purpose to protect their city. They play game, solve detective case, tease cop, or just take a nap together in their hideout. Well, the story may not seem that special, but
the way the girls carry out the story is what make it so special.
Characters: Here is the part that shine the most from this anime. Well, you may have seen a lot of "cute girls doing cute things" anime, but what make this anime become different is the 3 girls characters are acting like a real life girls in their age, which is around 9-10 years old. They are all act so naive, simple, and just having fun, but still have their own interesting personality.
Kotoha is the blue haired girls that always play her portable game console whenever wherever. She has a long hair and always wore hat which change in each occasion. Her personality is kinda twisted, as she always act like detective or spy, and sadistic to her friends sacchan. But she is overall still a kind little girl, and kinda act as a brain in their team. She is probably the best girl of this season for me, as i really love her attitude which always so cute and full of surprise, for example when the group found a locked safe and her friends hope it contains treasure or jewel, but she hope it contains human pinky or ear.
Sacchan is the yellow haired girls who is so hyperactive and act on impulse. She is the one who like doing mischievous act, and act as a push for her team to do something. One time she tease a random guy in akihabara asking his game console or she will scream.
Kotoha is the brown haired girls who the girls choose as their leader. She is little bit shy, and the one who really acts as a normal little girls in their age. She cried when the cop scold them, threaten them with Grenade launcher, and when she is told that the only way nature can be saved is by wiping out mankind. She act as a stopper in their team from doing something excessive. And she is probably the kindest of all the girls in the world.
Art and Sound: well, i never decide to like or give score to an anime based on art and sound. But for me the art of Mitsuboshi Colors is really amazing, they display the background kinda like in real Ueno Prefecture, the place and stuff that exist in the anime also exist in real life, such as the panda box, the police office, the bakery, etc. The characters animation is kinda similar to anime Strawberry Marshmallow but with overall improvement.
For the sound, I think it is also pretty good, with its overall cheerfulness theme. The OP and ED song is really amazing with the 3 girls VA as the singer, especially I really like the opening song as i rewind it so many times til i am bored.
Enjoyment: yeah, this is the anime with full of enjoyment. Just watching the girls having fun adventure, made me forget my real life problem and reminiscing my childhood. And watching the girl cuteness somehow made me want to make my own. Jk.
Overall this is anime with a lot of cuteness and fun, no drama, and no excessive characters emotion plot which is usually happen and ruin other cute girls doing cute things anime. Oh, and for bonus this anime is also full of high quality meme material.
