In Nagasaki, a descendant of mages, 17-year-old Hitomi lost her sense of color at a young age and grew up lacking emotion. Her grandmother Kohaku, a great mage, sends Hitomi to the past, to the year 2018. There, she spends time with a 17-year-old Kohaku and friends from club activities.

Wow thank you, grandma, for throwing me back in time without a warning and not caring whether I like it or not. Also for not even giving me money for the trip or any useful information what should do there. Like, Idc what reason you have, the first thing I’m gonna do when I’m back is to slap the sh*t out of her.

The visuals and music are fantastic, the main lead is already sympathetic and interesting and we already see signs of how the ontological paradox works out. What’s not to love? I’m intrigued at their depiction of colour blindness, complete with that wooshing sound effect to mark the transition between normal camera shots and “Hitomi-vision.” While it’s implied to have magical origins, I hope they pay the disability the respect those afflicted by it deserve.

Although the premise of time-travel via the Grandma seemed super-rushed and jarring the episode continued on to be amazing. I really wished the story found a way to incorporate that aspect in a more organize way, although they probably will revisit it in the future. Looking forward to a great season.
