This actually looks like it’ll be really cute!

With Sentai’s penchant for picking up most of the Showgate titles each season, I’m guessing this will pop up on CR in July followed by a Sentai license.

Though FUNi is probably still in the race for this as well, since they do tend to pick up a Showgate title here and there in recent seasons.
However, this just seems to fit more in line with Sentai’s Showgate catalog titles than it does with FUNi’s Showgate catalog titles.

I guess we’ll find out when the time comes.
Meanwhile, I’ll just make a thread for it.

Yeah, I’m gonna have to agree. If anyone is more likely to license it, it would be Sentai. It just fits more along their type of show: cute girls slice of life. Yes, Funi recently streamed Miname-ke, but do ya really see them releasing it dubbed let alone getting the first three season: it’ll probably wallow in licensed/development hell like Blessing of the Campallena or Tatami Galaxy.

Viz…naw don’t see it, not Shonen/action enough.

MB…naw as well…hmm…

So yeah, Sentai it is, to go along with their other cute shows: Hidamari, A-Channel, Place to Place, etc…

Kin-iro Mosaic TV Anime Slated for July 6

posted on 2013-05-31 23:49 EDT

The official website for the television anime adaptation of Yui Hara’s four-panel comedy manga Kin-iro Mosaic (Golden Mosaic) confirmed on Wednesday that the anime will premiere on July 6 at 8:30 p.m. on the AT-X network.

The original manga’s story begins with Shinobu (Asuka Nishi), a 15-year-old, seemingly “pure Japanese” girl who actually 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 (Manami Tanaka), the girl in Shinobu’s host family in Great Britain. The letter reads, “Shinobu, I’m coming to Japan!” The “Japanese/British girls’ mixed comedy” follows the lives of Shinobu, Alice, and other girls from both Japan and Great Britain.

Just from the character designs alone, it looks like a Sentai series. I can’t see anyone else touching it.

Ep. 04


I think I should probably stop posting ep. updates on this series after I watch each episode.
There’s only so many times “adorable” can be said without seeming redundant.

Wow. What is up with this show?

Why does it have such an odd aspect ratio? Letterboxing should be a thing of the past.

“Eye-u don’t-u speaku much Jap-knees.” “Rittle shisuta”

To quote the Japanese from Windtalkers: “Are they even speaking English; it sounds like they’re underwater!”

I haven’t gotten past the letterboxing yet, I’ve been laughing too hard…and I keep having to pause to figure out what the characters are saying in “English”.

That’s not letterboxing, that’s CINEMASCOPE. Here I was, thinking they were actually gonna make an anime with cinema style widescreen, but then I seen ep. 2. :frowning:
