Kin-iro Mosaic Schoolgirl Anime's Ad Samples Main Cast
Media Factory began streaming Tokyo MX TV's 15-second television commercial for the anime adaptation of Yui Hara's four-panel comedy manga Kin-iro Mosaic (Golden Mosaic) on Tuesday. The ad features the ending theme "Your Voice" by the main voice actresses Asuka Nishi (Shinobu Ōmiya), Manami Tanaka (Alice Cartelet), Risa Taneda (Aya Komichi), Nao Tōyama (Karen Kujō), and Yumi Uchiyama (Yōko Inokuma) as the new group Rhodanthe*.
In the ad, the Japanese school girl Shinobu shares her excitement about the girls getting animated with her British exchange student friend Alice.
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.
The anime premieres on July 6 at 8:30 p.m. on the AT-X network.
