Strip by: Nyperold

Strip title: Color Wonderland
{Miyabi is writing "Visible light" and "Relationship between spectrum and..." in Japanese on the chalkboard.}
Miyabi: The range of electromagnetic waves that humans perceive as color is called visible light.
{There is a chalk drawing of an apple, labeled "APPLE" in English, being shone on.}
Miyabi: We can distinguish colors from red to bluish violet by their wavelengths. So why does an apple appear red?
Miyabi: Kisaragi-dono. Your answer?
Kisaragi: Ah! Yes... umm... umm...
Kisaragi: B-because Red Butler-kun used his Star Sprinkles on it... ...or something like that?
Namiko: {thinking} Is she just a natural airhead?
Tomokane: {thinking} Or is she playing boke? Should I play tsukkomi here?
Footnote: A: Wavelengths get shorter in this order: Red, orange, yellow, green, blue, violet. Apples look read because they reflect the color with the longest wavelength. (Bluish violet has the shortest wavelength.)

The author writes:

Let's make Kisaragi's attribution a little more specific... and a little more '80s.
