report on behalf of MITSuME and OISTER collaboration:

We observed the field of GRB 151021A (Melandri et al., GCNC 18425)
with the optical three color (g', Rc and Ic) CCD camera attached
to the MITSuME 50cm telescope of Okayama Astrophysical Observatory.

The observation started on 2015-10-21 09:35:46 UT (8.1 h after
the burst). We could not detect the previously reported afterglow
(de Ugarte Postigo et al., GCNC 18426; Lipunov et al., GCNC 18427)
in all the three bands.

Three sigma upper limits of the OT are listed below.
We used GSC2.3 catalog for flux calibration.
