One series from the CGDCT (Cute Girls Doing Cute Things) genre that I’ve adored for years is Kiniro Mosaic (usually shortened to Kinmoza). Sadly though, the primary manga series has ended as of the May 2020 issue of Manga Time Kirara Max magazine. Don’t shed tears yet though because according to the same magazine, the series is not only getting a spinoff manga series titled Kin-iro Mosaic Best Wishes starting in the July issue (which goes on sale in May) but it will also get a brand new anime movie!
They have announced no release date for the movie, but we do have some details regarding who will bring the new movie to life. The movie will feature animation from Studio Gokumi (who you might remember also produced the animation for the two television anime adaptations) with assistance from studio AXsiZ and has Munenori Nawa as director. Also returning to the franchise is writer Yuniko Ayana and character designer Kazuyuki Ueda.
Originally a manga series created by Yui Hara and serialized in Manga Time Kirara Max magazine since June 2010. The manga is released in English by Yen Press. The series was also adapted into two television anime seasons in 2013 and 2015 which were simulcast by Crunchyroll and released on home video by Sentai Filmworks who describes the story as:
The British are coming! The British are coming! Or to be precise, one VERY specific person from Great Britain is coming. You see, when Shinobu Omiya was still in middle school, she had the amazing opportunity to study in England as an exchange student while living with a host family. While that was several years ago and she still doesn’t do all that well in English class, Shinobu has had warm feelings for everything English ever since. So when Shinobu learns that the daughter of her host family, Alice Cartelet, is coming to stay with her and study in Japan, she’s thrilled. But will Alice be able to fit in with Shinobu’s Japanese schoolfriends, Yoko and Aya? And how will the arrival of Shinobu’s old rival Karen, who’s half-English and half-Japanese, affect the potential culture clash?
