Sentai Acquires Colorful “IRODUKU: The World in Colors”
HOUSTON, TX — August 20, 2021 — Sentai announced today that it acquired IRODUKU: The World in Colors, the original supernatural drama series from P. A. Works, for audiences in North America, the United Kingdom, Ireland, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, Scandinavia, Turkey, Spain, Portugal and Latin America.
Hitomi Tsukishiro may be the child of a family of witches, but after losing her ability to see color, she also lost her sense of magic. Nothing has been able to help her regain that gift — nothing until Hitomi’s grandmother, that is, sends Hitomi back in time to the year 2018! There Hitomi meets her grandmother’s younger self. She also discovers fascinating drawings of a young man named Yuito Aoi. The moment Hitomi lays eyes on his work, colors flood back into view. But why do his drawings have this effect on Hitomi, and for what purpose has her grandmother sent her so far back in time? As Hitomi’s feelings for Yuito grow, she finds herself poised on the cusp of personal transformation, color and magic returning as she blossoms into the young woman she’s meant to be.
Produced by P. A. Works (SHIROBAKO, Another, Angel Beats!), IRODUKU: The World in Colors is directed by Toshiya Shinohara (Black Butler, A Lull in the Sea, InuYasha the Movie: Affections Touching Across Time) with series composition from Yuko Kakihara (Chihayafuru 2, Asobi Asobase, Cells at Work!). The series’ music is by Yoshiaki Dewa (Flying Witch, Amnesia, Gamers!).
The series stars Kaori Ishihara (Waiting in the Summer, Gatchaman Crowds Insight, "Hentai" Prince and the Stony Cat) as Hitomi Tsukishiro, Shoya Chiba (Dororo, Tsukigakirei, Classroom of the Elite) as Yuita Aoi and Kaede Hondo (Val x Love, Zombieland Saga, BOFURI: I Don't Want to Get Hurt, so I'll Max Out My Defense) as Kohaku Tsukishiro.
