The Kiniro Mosaic manga series from Yui Hara has been running for some time and we’ve seen several anime adaptations over the years. Sometimes listed as KINMOZA, the original work began in 2010 as serialized in Manga Time Kirara Max and had its tenth volume out this past summer. The manga itself announced its end last year and has hit that mark but the ending comes with some interesting news. While there’s a special manga coming for it in July as Kiniro Mosaic Best Wishes, it was also revealed that a feature anime film is in the works.
The film has Munenori Nawa directing it based n the screenplay by Yuniko Ayana. Kazuyuki Ueda is on board for the character designs with Studio Gokumi and AXsiZ working on the animation production.
The first series, produced by Studio Gokumi with Showgate, was directed by Motoki Tanaka. It was animated at Studio Gokumi with Yuniko Ayana handling the scripting duties while Kazuyuki Ueda worked the character design.
The first and second seasons have been licensed and released by Sentai Filmworks.
Plot concept: 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.
