On February 13 at noon EST, HIDIVE will begin streaming the anime special episodes Kin-iro Mosaic: Pretty Days and Kin-iro Mosaic: Thank you!! August 2021 saw the release of the movie based on Yui Hara's Kin-iro Mosaic manga.
HIDIVE describes the story:
Alice, Shinobu, Aya, and Yoko have truly become the best of friends, but since it's their last year, they must split their time between preparing for the big senior trip to Nara and Kyoto and trying to make plans for whatever is to come next in their lives… and in Shinobu's case, that may mean something so amazing that she'd never even dared to dream it! Hop on the tour bus for one last wonderful adventure in KINMOZA! THE MOVIE – THANK YOU!!
The special episode opened in November 2016. HIDIVE describes the story of it as:
Shinobu has to write a script and make costumes for a school play, and it's a lot of work for one person. Fortunately for Shinobu's theatrical future, Alice, Yoko, and Aya are glad to pitch in, and that allows for a chance to reflect on their experiences in the days before Alice arrived. Will everything be finished in time, or will the audience be in stitches because of the ones coming apart onstage? There's no way to be sure until the last curtain call in KINMOZA! PRETTY DAYS!
Both were released on home video by Sentai Filmworks.
In April 2010, Hara published the first chapter of the manga in Houbunsha's Manga Time Kirara Max. The series concluded in March 2020. In April 2020, Houbunsha published the eleventh volume of a compilation work. In May 2020, a unique Kin-iro Mosaic Best Wishes manga began, and it ran through March 2021.
The manga was published in English by Yen Press. The tale of the original manga starts with Shinobu, a 15-year-old girl who appeared to be "100% Japanese" and who spent time in a British homestay. She continues to long for her time spent abroad even after returning to Japan. One day, Alice, the young lady living with Shinobu's host family in Great Britain, sends a letter by air mail. I'm coming to Japan, Shinobu, the letter declares. Shinobu, Alice, and other girls from both Japan and Great Britain are the subjects of the "Japanese/British girls' light comedy," which chronicles their lives.
The first anime adaptation of the manga debuted in 2013, and Hello!! KINMOZA debuted in 2015. Both seasons were shown on Crunchyroll as they were in Japan. The first season of the anime series was made available on home video in 2014, and the follow-up was published in October 2016. In Japan, a special episode of the anime Kin-iro Mosaic: Pretty Days premiered in November 2016.
