News Hello!! Kin-iro Mosaic's 1st Promo Video Streamed
posted on 2014-08-14 12:32 EDT
The official website for the Kin-iro Mosaic (KINMOZA!) anime began streaming the first promotional for the anime's second season, Hello!! Kin-iro Mosaic, on Thursday. The video features the theme songs "Satsuki-iro Halcyon" and "Your Voice" by Rhodanthe, the latter of which was the first season's closing theme.
The main staff from the first season are returning for the second. Motoki Tanaka (Tensho) is returning to direct the series at Studio Gokumi. Kazuyuki Ueda is designing the characters, and Yuniko Ayana is in charge of the series scripts.
The cast, also unchanged from the first season, includes:
- Asuka Nishi as Shinobu Ōmiya
- Manami Tanaka as Alice Cartelet
- Nao Tōyama as Karen Kujō
- Risa Taneda as Aya Komichi
- Yumi Uchiyama as Yōko Inokuma
Yui Hara's original manga 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 and will release it on home video later this month.
Update: Typo fixed. Thanks, AsukaTenjyoin.
