A new season of anime is upon us courtesy of a strangely intruiging heroine – Miss Monochrome.
“Miss Monochrome” is an original character design from seiyuu Horie Yui. In March 2012, she first used the “Miss Monochrome” character as a 3D virtual singer to sing her songs at her concert “Horie Yui wo Meguru Bouken III ~Secret Mission Tour~”. Later, the character appeared in a range of merchandise as well as in the social network game “Girlfriend (Beta)”.
According to the setting, Miss Monochrome loves only the monochrome style, dislikes all kinds of color, and always dreams about changing the world into her favorite monochrome color.
So how was it?
Pretty fun really. At only 4 minutes (including a nice ED) we saw Miss Monochrome immediately backstabbed by her first manager only to pick herself up and find a new one almost straight away… with a little twist. Miss Monochrome appears to be a highly naive character but she’s very kind-hearted and likable.
She doesn’t speak in total monotone (thank god!) and her voice is slightly digitalised (a la vocaloid). It’s almost soothing to listen too.
Already keen for future episodes. I wonder who the green-eyed girl from her dream was…
