The staff for the original television anime Opus Colors unveiled its first full promotional video, opening theme song’s artists, and April 6 premiere over the past week.
The male vocal unit Urashimasakatasen performs the opening theme song “SHINY.” The series will premiere on the Tokyo MX and BS11 channels on April 6 at 24:00 (effectively, April 7 at midnight).
The anime centers on the relationship between an “artist” and a “grader,” in an immersive field of digital art known as “perception art” that was developed only a decade ago. Kazuya Yamanashi is the son of a couple who are considered one of the founders of perception art, while Jun Tsuzuki is his friend. Both are childhood friends with Kyo Takise, who also has influential art parents, and is also a grader.
