‘Irozuku Sekai no Ashita kara’ is anime developed by the Japanese animation studio P.A.Works that is known in English as ‘Iroduku: The World in Colors.’ It ran for thirteen episodes from October 6, 2018 to December 29, 2018, with HiDive announcing they were casting an English voice cast for a dub.
“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 helped her regain that gift until Hitomi’s grandmother sends her back in time to 2018! There, Hitomi meets her grandmother’s younger self and 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 her,” they said on their website.
They listed their cast as follows:
- Hitomi – Alyssa Marek
- Yuito – Nathan Wilson
- Kohaku – Cat Thomas
- Sho – Adam Gibbs
- Kurumi – Allison Sumrall
- Asagi – Brittany Karbowski
- Chigusa – James Marler

John Swasey will work as the ADR Director.

[ANNOUNCEMENT] When is IRODUKU: The World in Colors English dub streaming on HIDIVE?
— HIDIVE 💙 (@HIDIVEofficial) June 16, 2022
MyAnimeList describes the synopsis as follows,
“Despite the kaleidoscopic magic ingrained in everyday life, Hitomi Tsukishiro’s monochrome world is deprived of emotion and feeling. On a night as black and white as any other, amidst the fireworks spreading across the sky, Hitomi’s grandmother Kohaku conjures a spell, for which she has been harnessing the moon’s light for 60 years, to send Hitomi back in time to the year 2018 when Kohaku was in high school.
Hitomi’s mission seems unclear, but her grandmother assures her that she will know when she gets there. Following a trip through time aboard a train driven by a strange yellow creature, Hitomi finds herself in stoic artist Yuito Aoi’s room, and his drawings flood her world with color. What is Hitomi’s purpose there, and why do Yuito’s drawings return such breathtaking color to her drab world?”
Yūko Kakihara wrote the show while the music was handled by Yoshiaki Dewa.
