In addition to Naoko Yamada directing and coming up with the original concept, Kimi no Iro features a script by Reiko Yoshida (K-ON!A Silent Voice) and music by Kensuke Ushio (Chainsaw Man) at production house Science SARU.

Here’s how GKIDS describes The Colors Within:

Totsuko is a high school student with the ability to see the ‘colors’ of others. Colors of bliss, excitement, and serenity, plus a color she treasures as her favorite. Kimi, a classmate at her school, gives off the most beautiful color of all. Although she doesn’t play an instrument, Totsuko forms a band with Kimi and Rui, a quiet music enthusiast they meet at a used bookstore in a far corner of town. As they practice at an old church on a remote island, music brings them together, forming friendships and stirring affections. Will they discover their true ‘colors’?
