Kiniro Mosaic

More comedy and more slice of life… Kill me. I cannot believe that the user ratings for this are higher than Uchouten Kazoku. I don’t see how they’re going to keep things interesting for twelve whole episodes.

Kiniro MosaicThe artwork is okay. You can clearly tell that they really focussed on making the characters as cute as possible. Even I must admit that I smiled when Shinobu tried to speak English. How could I not crack a smile when all she says is “hallo”?

I don’t really have that much hope for the story though. Would I really want to see twelve episodes about how little girls cope with living in foreign countries? It would be nice for the first few episodes, no doubt, but I think that it would get boring really fast.

Slice of life fans eat your hearts out. Loli fans eat your hearts out (and get some help). I for one will be following this for the time being, I doubt I’ll write about it, but I’ll keep watching to see where they’re going with this.

Plot Summary: The story begins with Oomiya Shinobu, a 15-year-old, seemingly pure Japanese girl who actually did a homestay in Great Britain. Even after coming back to Japan, she still misses her time overseas. One day, an airmail letter arrives from Alice, the girl in Shinobu’s host family in Great Britain. The letter reads: Shinobu, I’m coming to Japan! The Japanese/British girls’ mixed comedy follows the lives of Shinobu, Alice, and other girls from both Japan and Great Britain.
