This new story from Silver Link (‘Chivalry of a Failed Knight,’ ‘Tanaka-kun is Always Listless,’ and ‘Kokoro Connect’) follows the lives of three small kids on their own secret mission… to protect their city! The adventures of the “Colors” adventures include struggling to be heard, playing games, solving puzzles, and even outsmarting some adults, all before nightfall.

The Mitsuboshi Colors manga launched in the pages of Kadokawa’s Monthly Comic Dengeki Daioh in 2014. To date, four compiled volumes have been released, with the most recent hitting stores today.
