Kin-iro Mosaic/KINMOZA! Special Episode Gets Theatrical Screening
posted on by Karen Ressler
The official website for the Kinmoza! Kiniro + Mosaic anime unveiled the title, key visual, and theatrical release plans for a special episode on Saturday. The episode is titled "Kiniro Mosaic Pretty Days," and it will open in theaters across Japan, including the Shinjuku Baltic 9, on November 12.
In the episode, the school festival is on the horizon and something is off with Shinobu. She says she's been very sleepy in the mornings lately, and it seems she has pushed herself too hard working on the scripts and costumes for their class play. Alice and Yōko, who are in another class, notice her circumstances.
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 in 2014, and the second series, Hello!! KINMOZA, premiered in 2015. Crunchyroll streamed both seasons as they aired in Japan, and Sentai Filmworks licensed both for home video release.
Yen Press announced in March that it has licensed Hara's original manga.
