Winter 2016 Stream: Myriad Colors Phantom World: Episode 8
A monkey spirit invades the school setting up a supernatural hot spring with now a "hot spring" episode in this episode. Some really impressive animation of mystical birds, rainbow swords and a trio of girls using water based attacks make this again another consistently good looking series. While also focusing on the fan service or lack of fan service from teammates Reina, Koito, and Kurumi making for some funny parts while Mai is subjected to the lecherous advances of the spectral monkey and a goofy Cthulu reference get thrown in as well making it a hot pot of odd references character comedy and a subtle amount of growth in Mai's opinion of Haruhiko. This continues to be series that gives scraps for the character writing, world building, and other fundamental and functional aspects of storytelling.While visuals are continually crisp if a little cheap looking in the minions of the phantom monkey.
