Two horny college slackers and a beautiful professor. A frustrated TV reporter. A sexy track star and her tempted coach. And a high school girlzilla that’s the size of the Empire State building. Colorful! contains over 50 vignettes of men, women, and the pursuit of… well, you’ll just have to see.

From hotties on subways and perverted cabbies, to panty-obsessed video geeks, sexy mall babes, and the furry phenomenon, Colorful! is a strange, deranged, racy and hilarious dose of animated Viagra! (And if live action is more your style, check out the behind-the-scenes documentary that shows the twisted, demented cast and crew that bring Colorful! to vivid life!)

But here in front of me is an anime preceding the 2000s and its outlandish internet culture, that exhibits all of these characteristics. I am not so naïve as to say "Colorful is ahead of its time" but I believe it stands atop its contemporaries as what may have served as the inspiration ...

Mixed Feelings
There are many reasons why a piece of media is forgotten to the sands of time. Sometimes it's because something isn't very good, sometimes it's because it was released at a time that prevented it from getting a better foothold. In Colorful's case, it's because it just wasn't very memorable.

So what's the plot for this series? It doesn't have one! Based on a manga series, Colorful is a series that focuses on the 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 and the outrageous consequences of ...

A mixture of different shots. Positively speaking left a surprise of what was to come. Negatively, plot could change at any precise moment. In other words sure one never got bored but how is one supposed to focus if you won't stand still. *crickets chirp( I thought it was amusing).

Could have made for a rather interesting ecchi aspect. But several elements had my mind questioning the demonstration that made me miss the show. For example there was more than one ending. Why was there two? Did the creator originally shoot for one season of 8 episodes than due to popular demand brought ...
