I do not even know how innocent the Mitsuboshi Colors should be, given the age of main cast and the synopsis.
Level of my english is still too poor, so ask not particularly angry because of my terrible grammar.

This show is simply a non-exclusive for the licensor, so we are excited to license the SimulDub! :)
