The official website for the anime of Yui Hara's four-panel comedy manga Kin-iro Mosaic (Kinmoza!/Golden Mosaic) announced on Friday at midnight that production on a sequel has been green-lit. The website 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. Tickets will go on sale on March 21. The Kadokawa booth at the AnimeJapan event this weekend will pass out postcards to commemorate the sequel production and live concert.
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.
