Myriad Colors Phantom World is based on Sōichirō Hatano’s novel of the same name. Tatsuya Ishihara (Clannad, Sound! Euphonium) directed the series at Kyoto Animation, while Kazumi Ikeda (Clannad, Love, Chunibyo, & Other Delusions) handled character designs. Fumihiko Shimo (Air, Clannad) took charge of series composition for the project.
Crunchyroll streamed the show as part of their Winter 2016 simulcast lineup. Funimation describes the show as:
Bounce into Kyoto Animation’s new action-adventure series filled with cute girls, menacing phantoms, and the dangers of the human mind.
Things that go bump in the night, the seeming nothingness your cat stares into—what if something was there and what if you could see it? In Haruhiko Ichijo’s world, that’s the reality. After an experimental virus altered human brain chemistry, people began seeing “phantoms”—creatures once thought to be mere imagination. Most are harmless, but for the few that cause trouble, it’s up to those with special abilities to stop them.
Haruhiko, along with his fairy-phantom companion Ruru, and the brash yet vivacious Mai are part of the Phantom Hunting Club at Hosea Academy.
Though their abilities are impressive, they’re kind of the worst team—until they recruit a few fresh faces! With phantom-eater Reina, the cool and powerful Koito, and the adorable Kurumi on their team, the girls and Haruhiko are ready to take on any phantom. But when it comes to facing creatures born of the human mind, what dangers await?
