In a corner of a certain park in Ueno lies the base of a group of peacekeepers. Satsuki the (self-proclaimed) cutie, Kotoha the gamer (but sucks at it) and Yui. The three of them are COLORS, the protectors (read: terrorists) of peace in Ueno park area. The COLORS tirelessly protect the peace and save the weak (read: terrorizing) at Ueno park area day and night (until 5 pm).
A short disclaimer, even though this anime has the same color palette as 765pro, there is no connection between The iDOLM@STER and Mitsuboshi COLORS. Nor does the “colour-y” name has any connection with the color gangs of Ikebukuro from Durarara!!. All these things are mere coincidence.
After watching the first episode, this anime has what it needs to be called an iyashikei anime. Light, happy and fun story; colourful selections of colour palette, and the amazing Ueno Park shots made me think that this anime is fun for everyone. However, after a second glance, the story of three elementary schoolgirls as protectors (read: terrorists) of Ueno Park, some of the jokes are more aimed for adults rather than the general audience. But in the end, I really recommend the adventures of Satsuki, Kotoha and Yui protecting (read: terrorizing) the peace of Ueno to become your weekend show in the 2018 winter anime season.
