The July issue of Houbunsha's Manga Time Kirara Max magazine announced on Monday that the Kin-iro Mosaic (KINMOZA!) anime staff will return for the second season. 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 anime's official website also confirmed that the five main voice cast members are returning:
- Asuka Nishi as Shinobu Ōmiya
- Manami Tanaka as Alice Cartelet
- Risa Taneda as Aya Komichi
- Yumi Uchiyama as Yōko Inokuma
- Nao Tōyama as Karen Kujō
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.
