Once shunned by the art world, Perception Art has taken the world by storm. The medium has evolved to incorporate all five senses, allowing viewers to completely immerse themselves in pieces of art. As the son of the creators of this movement, Kazuya Yamanashi has inherited his late parents' talent and creativity for Perception Art. Now enrolled at Eisen High School, the first-year has his sights set on becoming the best Perception Artist.

Kazuya has a reason besides ambition to attend this prestigious institution, as he hopes to make amends with his estranged childhood friend, third-year student Kyou Takise. But the rift between them may be difficult to repair since Kyou and Kazuya belong to different streams of study at the school.

As luck would have it, the two are partnered for the exclusive Staircaser competition, in which the winners will represent Eisen for the year. In order to stand a chance against their competitors, Kazuya and Kyou will have to learn to set aside their differences first.

This is NOT BL. Not at all. Trust me.

First impression, in my opinion the art style is unique. I LOVE IT!
The idea is very fresh, I'm getting more and more interested. As long as I watch it, I really enjoy it.

This anime is the best art anime I've ever known. What a beautiful anime. Besides the visual beauty of their artwork, it also presents a beautiful story and meaning of life as well -if you pay close attention to the story-
You'll cry, what a perfect story-visual-song mix at the end of the episode!

I'm looking forward to Season 2!! :)) I'm glad found Opus.COLORs! ...

Mixed Feelings
Opus.COLORs was an Ok anime at best, they put the whole devolepment in only 2 characters, and say "fuck it" for the rest of the cast. The only thing saving this anime of beign just bad, its the super emotional final. When I watched episode 12 I was SOBBING. This is so good but I am so sad that this anime is so mid, no world construction or side characters devolpment. Still pretty OK. If the ending was a LITTLE worse it would be a 5/10 easily. I'm glad they knew what they were doing, they knew really well their whole point was only 2 ...

Let me sum Opus.Colors up in 1 word: crap. There ya' go. A one word review the sums it up. Did you miss it? Let me review it again. Crap.

Opus.Color is about, um, damn I have no clue what it was supposed to be. A coming of age story? Nope. A story of true friendship? Nah not in the way the ML treated his truest friend. Art? eeehhh debatable. Hot guys wandering around in uniform? That! Well, almost. With better animation they would have been oh so much sweeter.

With art being a subplot or rather a plot device and the name ...
