The February issue of Houbunsha's Manga Time Kirara Max magazine is announcing on Wednesday that an television anime adaptation of Yui Hara's four-panel comedy manga Kin-iro Mosaic (Golden Mosaic) has been green-lit.
The story begins with Shinobu Ōmiya, 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 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' mixed comedy" follows the lives of Shinobu, Alice, and other girls from both Japan and Great Britain.
Hara launched the manga in Manga Time Kirara Max in 2010, and Houbunsha published the second compiled book volume in April. Tokyopop published Hara's The Witch of Artemis (Hoshi no Witch) in North America.
