posted on by Andrew Osmond
Manga Entertainment Tweeted the following regarding its upcoming Blu-ray/DVD combo release of the series Hello! Kinmoza, the sequel series to the original Kinmoza.
Due to unforeseen circumstances, Hello! Kinmoza will not be ready for release on 2nd April as previously listed. We sincerely apologise for any disappointment and frustration caused by this. It has now been rescheduled for 2nd July.
The main staff from the first Kinmoza season returned for the second. Motoki Tanaka (Tensho) returned to direct the series at Studio Gokumi. Kazuyuki Ueda designed the characters, and Yuniko Ayana was in charge of the series scripts. The main Japanese cast was also unchanged from the first season.
Yui Hara's original manga begins with Shinobu, a 15-year-old, seemingly "pure Japanese" girl who did a homestay in Britain. Even after coming back to Japan, she still misses her time overseas. One day, a 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 Britain.
