Second Kiniro Mosaic season green-lit
The June issue of Houbunsha’s Manga Time Kirara Max magazine is announcing on Saturday that the upcoming Kiniro Mosaic (Kinmoza!/Golden Mosaic) anime sequel will be a new second television season. Yui Hara, the creator of the original Kiniro Mosaic four-panel comedy manga, drew a sketch thanking fans for the new season.
The official website for the anime had announced last month that a production on a sequel has been green-lit. Director Motoki Tanaka (Tensho) reported this month that he has recently been working on a new anime after the first Kiniro Mosaic anime. He added that this new anime has a slightly different feel from Kin-iro Mosaic.
The Kin-iro Mosaic anime’s website had also announced that there will be a special live Kin-iro Mosaic concert event called “Hello Konnichiwa!!” by the group Rhodanthe* on May 4 at 5:30 p.m. at the Zepp Tokyo venue.
The original manga’s story begins with Shinobu, a 15-year-old, seemingly “pure Japanese” girl who did a homestay in Great Britain. Even after coming back to Japan, she still misses her time overseas. One day, an air mail 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’ light comedy” follows the lives of Shinobu, Alice, and other girls from both Japan and Great Britain.
The first anime series ran last summer. Crunchyroll streamed the anime in several regions as it aired in Japan, and Sentai Filmworks licensed it for North America.
