Hope you guys all had a fabulous Christmas with your loved ones. Here we are… for the final episode which I was praying the week would go slow for this. From start to finish, it was a cry-athon for me, in knowing how this series would end itself. All the last stops were pulled for this week on the emotional train in a powerful goodbye, Hitomi returning to her own time and bidding those who have become close to her… a final goodbye. TISSUE BOX IS NEEDED FOR THIS!!
Japanese Original Title: (色の世界)
The time has come for Hitomi to say goodbye to the people who’ve become so close to her. Everyone in the group says their last words and farewells. When it’s Yuta’s turn, the time magic becomes distort as there are unspoken words left to be confessed.
Goodbye: No goodbye is ever easy and P.A Works pulled out every emotional stop they could, to leave you in tears. By the beginning of the episode, I was already crying because of the heartfelt, genuine connection Hitomi has built with Asagi, Sho, Chigusa, Kurumi, and Yuta is beautiful which was going to make all the more heart-wrenching to watch. Yet emotional as hell, it couldn’t have been done any more beautiful, this whole scene sequence. How each other has been affected and the memories they all made together.
It Was Coming: To say the least was so bloody predictable, the scene of Yuta walking away then the time magic becomes distort. Then sending Yuta and Hitomi off somewhere randomly so they can confess their feelings, LEAVE IT TILL THE GODDAMN LAST EPISODE, WHY DON’T YOU. But predictable, their confession was beautiful and wonderful. It was a crying torture to watch on my end in saying from the beginning, the pair could never get behind, seeing in this final scene. Both have equal traits of being introverts and shutting themselves away from others. So I can say, I support the pair now, haha.
I’m Home: At the beginning it’s just random, Kohaku sending Hitomi to the past but it was the buildup from there to this one moment where Kohaku’s wish is to bring Hitomi happiness. That was all she ever wanted to do for her granddaughter. The scene Hitomi returns home and Kohaku seeing a different Hitomi than before, Kohaku’s expression gets you good in the feels. Even more GOD DAMN touching Kohaku could share the time capsule the others had made for Hitomi. The STORYBOOK Yuta created representing everyone, AHH made me ball my eyes out. Kohaku could finally share with her grand daughter all these memories, AND IT’S ALL TOO MUCH FOR YOUR FEELS.
Themes And Trivia
Driven Feelings Are Magic: When Hitomi finally returns to her own time, Kohaku realises something about time magic that the spell she cast wasn’t the reason Hitomi was able to return. It was the heartfelt feelings and words from the others that the spell could work. Kohaku was sad in this scene and she wasn’t going to tell the others because if she did then Hitomi may have never been able to go back, especially if everyone had been selfish with their feelings and wanted Hitomi to stay put in their time.
The final episode… WAS EXACTLY HOW I THOUGHT IT WAS GOING TO END. The heartfelt words and goodbyes from everyone, Yuta and Hitomi had their moment, Kohaku finally got to talk about everyone with Hitomi. It was truly all so perfect for the final ending to this EMOTIONAL SERIES. I was crying from start to finish. IT WAS TOO SAD THE FACT THAT HITOMI WOULD NEVER SEE EVERYONE AGAIN. Excuse me while I find a place for all my feels because have no idea where to put them right now.
What Color Are You?
Iroduku: The World In Colors did justice to its name. I have not had an anime make me cry so much, since Nagi No Asukara, and can say officially equal in emotional levels. This is a beautiful series sending the message in finding the happiness that is around you but you may have become blind towards. We got to see this through Hitomi’s lens and the wonderful pull of magic this series will have over you.
I LOVED this series so much and it’s one that will never forget just like Nagi No Asukara. Truly through Iroduku: The World In Colors P.A Works demonstrate why they are the masters of emotion.
I’m going to MISS THIS SERIES SO MUCH!!!
