Asuka Nishi leads cast in July adaptation of Yui Hara's 4-panel comedy manga

Production company Media Factory began streaming the second promotional video on Friday for the television anime adaptation of Yui Hara's four-panel comedy manga Kin-iro Mosaic (Golden Mosaic).

The video reveals the main cast as follows:

Tensho (Rewrite's opening animation director, designs) will be directing the anime at Studio Gokumi (NAKAIMO - My Little Sister Is Among Them!, Dansai Bunri no Crime Edge) from scripts by Yuniko Ayana (Ground Control to Psychoelectric Girl, Bakuman.). Kazuyuki Ueda (NAKAIMO - My Little Sister Is Among Them! chief animation director) will be handling the character designs.

The original manga's story begins with 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 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 this past April. Tokyopop published Hara's The Witch of Artemis (Hoshi no Witch) in North America.

The comedy anime will premiere on television in Japan in July.
