posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda
Comedy anime airs 2 episodes every Wed/Thu at 7:00 p.m. (JKT/BKK), 8:00 p.m. (SIN/PH)

International television channel Animax Asia began airing the Kinmoza! (Kiniro + Mosaic) anime on Wednesday. The anime is airing four episodes every week (two episodes each on Wednesday and Thursday) at 7:00 p.m. in Indonesia and Thailand, and at 8:00 p.m. in Singapore and the Philippines.

Animax Asia describes the series:

Shinobu Omiya, once went to England for a short stay. When Shinobu was there, she met Alice Cartalet and enjoyed the time spent with her, despite their language barrier.

One day, Shinobu receives a letter from Alice, saying she is coming to Japan. However, before Shinobu manages to translate and understand the letter, Alice appears in her school.

What will school life be for Shinobu and Alice? How will this cross cultural and language friendship blossom?

The anime aired in Japan in July 2013. A second season with 12 episodes premiered in Japan on April 5.

Tensho (Rewrite's opening animation director, designs) directed 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) handled the character designs.

The five main voice cast members Asuka Nishi (Shinobu Ōmiya), Manami Tanaka (Alice Cartelet), Risa Taneda (Aya Komichi), Nao Tōyama (Karen Kujō), and Yumi Uchiyama (Yōko Inokuma) performed the opening theme song "Jumping!!" and ending theme "Your Voice" under the unit name Rhodanthe*.

The anime is based on Yui Hara's Kin-iro Mosaic manga, which she launched in Houbunsha's Manga Time Kirara Max magazine in 2010. Houbunsha published the manga's sixth compiled book volume on June 27.
