This magical, futuristic world is growing on me with each new episode. This week’s episode of Iroduku was soothing. Nothing spectacular happened, and that’s okay. It felt very slice-of-life with Hitomi deciding which school club to join and trying to adjust to this new world. It was the right pace to take this week. Let’s jump right into things!!
Japanese Original Title: (雨虹ノー)
The others try to get Hitomi to join their school clubs, Photography and arts. While Hitomi is attempting to branch out with new things, Yuto discovers Hitomi’s secret.
Incredible Water Visuals: I’m sorry (not sorry) that every week you’ll hear about this series’ jaw-dropping visuals. Especially animation scenes with water are my favorites. I felt those Nagi No Asukara vibes while Hitomi was walking along the water and had the mist around her. Also in the pool with the others, the visuals looked incredible. Everyone has these illuminating auras around them and it just was beautiful.
Recognising: Last week’s episode had me steaming of the fact of how Hitomi keeps being forced into things; she has no say in. The same happened again this episode with the others pinning on her to be the model for the photography session. We’re in agreement that Hitomi has got to speak up, right? But Yuto and the others’ apology to Hitomi was sincere and recognized the pressure they’d put her under. THANK YOU!! for not leaving like it was all Hitomi’s fault that she needs to speaks up more.
Asagi Infatuation: I was sensing in this episode that Asagi has feelings for Yuto’s best friend Sho, particularly the scene when Sho was talking to Hitomi. Asagi pulled a little pouting face. Hmm, we shall see. I can envision the pair together.
Instinct – It was obvious Yuto’s keen artist instincts would notice Hitomi’s secret. It was so cute how Hitomi thanked Yuto for reminding her of colours again, her smile. Doesn’t it just put a smile on your face at scenes like that? Cannot wait for precious Hitomi to see colours permanently.
Themes And Trivia
After School Clubs: It’s a big part of schooling in Japanese schools to take part in a club. Great lengths are taken to attract new members at start of the new school year with exhibits, demonstrations, and people handing out flyers.
Monochromatic: An artist technique that uses only one color. Using the same color for your shadowing and highlights is not an easy skill to have.
It’s a great thing after you’ve had a busy, stressful week to come watch a series like Iroduku whose visuals and subtle tone can wash away all the frustrations. These are anime I adore above anything in this medium. It’s exactly what this episode did for me this week. Nothing amazing happened, not like in the last two bedazzling episodes, but it’s enjoyable right now to watch how Hitomi is evolving. I’ll tell you right now, she won’t be the same person by the end of the series. My hope is the girl learns to speak up for herself more. That’s all I want for right now.
I have no complaints about this week’s episode. It was just nice to take a back seat.
The Visuals Are Everything
If by now you are not watching this series, do it now. Insane, great visuals and magical futuristic world will have you swallowed whole within seconds. It teased at the end of the episode Hitomi’s grandma, Kohaku will be making her debut. I’m excited for this, the girl sounds crazy.
