More adorable antics from the little heroes-in-training. How Evil is Mitsuboshi Colors episode 4?
This episode starts off with Yui practicing a dance for an upcoming festival that they helped clean the town for in episode two. During Yui’s practice, Sacchan gets a call. It’s a call for help and, like the fledgling heroes they are, the Colors spring into action. They arrive at a bakery were Sacchan has a battle with the front door. Meaning she ran head first into in while it was opening.
What dangers await our heroes in a bakery? Turns out Nonoka is the one that called them. She needs them to stop an ogre from taking over the bakery. The girls agree and then the door opens to reveal the monster Nonoka has been talking about. Nonoka’s older sister Momoka. See, these two have a deal. If Nonoka can make bread as good as their dad’s and make a completely new item, she can keep the bakery. If not, Momoka can do with it what she wants. The Colors have been called to taste the bread and determine the winner. The results are conclusive.
During the second part of this episode, we follow Yui as she prepares to be in the parade for the festival. As you can imagine, the idea of dancing in a parade has her a little nervous. Two of her classmates encouraged her, but she is thinking about the other two Colors more than anything. Perfect time to jump to the others now, right?
We go directly to what Sacchan and Kotoha are doing. They decide they do want to see Yui in the parade so they take off running to try and find a good spot to watch from. They look but are having a hard time finding a good spot until the old man appears. He seems to appear at just the right times, doesn’t he? Sacchan and Kotoha finally have the perfect spot to watch the parade with Yui dancing being the highlight of the show for them.
As soon as Yui passes out of their sight, they make a beeline for Yui’s school so they can enjoy the rest of the festival. When the girls reunite they explore everything the festival has to offer including some restricted areas. No banana fights this time though. Oh, I almost forgot Sacchan and Kotoha notice that a lot of the people in the area are sparkling, so they ask Yui to do it too and then straight up ignore her when they find out about the “twinklers” that are being given away as prizes. They are star pendants that light up.
After all the fun in games are done Sacchan’s mom arrives to take the girls home. The girls are reluctant to leave, but they follow her anyway. Hm, so they can behave sometimes, good to know. On the way back home Yui’s pendant runs out of battery. Sacchan and Kotoha say it’s okay because Yui can sparkle all by her self. So Yui tries to make herself sparkle through force of will.
The mom had the best reaction, to be honest. She smiled like that for an entire minute before uttering a single “What?” Overall this episode was about as evil as a Killer Robot Army (8). It hasn’t gotten any worse or better. It remains the same silly show it started as so far. If you want a show that is getting better (albeit very gradually) check out CVoyage’s reviews of Toji no Miko. We just got something unexpected in the latest episode. Well, that’s all I have for you today. Thanks for letting me waste your time, people.
