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?

Such can also be said for a series named Iroduku: The World in Colors (いろずく せかい の あした から Or Irozuku Sekai no Ashita kara) (2018). This series showed the story of Tsukishiro Hitomi, a young mage who lost her sense of colors despite being ingrained with kaleidoscopic magic. On a night as monochrome as ...

Mixed Feelings
Can you mark time?
Can you make change?

These are ideas people can contemplate, but can a anime series focus on it?

This would be a resounding... Somewhat, "Irozuku Sekai no Ashita kara" / "Iroduku" really doesn't use the time travel aspects, and it's more or less just a footnote for the story for 10 of the 13 episodes. The story elements mainly just was a somewhat generic school romance & slice of life, but it does show change of the MC "Hitomi" throughout the story, and this it does extremely well.
The stuff it emphasized in the synopsis was not exactly what was featured, kinda like a ...

Spoilers ahead. I wanted to watch something wholesome since I recently got back into anime. I had this as a recommendation but was left with a complete disappointment.

Let's start with the story. The story is non-existent. It's essentially about some teenagers in a club doing club things. Oh right, there is a mention of time-travel at the start but nothing really happens with the time-travelling aspect.

I mean, you can't really introduce your show by sending the main character back in time and then do nothing of it. What was the point exactly?

I won't call the story as story but rather as a concept ...
