Synopsis

The story begins with Oomiya Shinobu, 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 airmail 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' mixed comedy follows the lives of Shinobu, Alice, and other girls from both Japan and Great Britain.

It is known for a while that the cute x (girls + things) formula can either be the salvation or the damnation of an anime. While some Slice of Life shows tend to emphasize the characters and leaving out every other elements, ending up failing their purpose of entertaining, other shows manage to use the right dosage of cute elements and comedy to bring out the best of the Slice of Life genre.

As heartwarming as they come, Kiniro Mosaic (Golden Mosaic in english) was a surprise in the 2013 summer anime line up. Sometimes being simple is the best way to bring entertainment and read more

Pros:
-Charming, amusing characters, rendered with delightful art and voices
-Tried-and-true premise with a peripherally novel twist
-Enjoyable storylines

Cons:
-Missing that special spark of excellence


Kiniro Mosiac is another take on the boundlessly popular “cute schoolgirls” genre.

The first episode engagingly presents the main twist on the formula, mostly through an extended flashback—the two main characters are ethnically contrasting childhood friends who reunite when the British national transfers to a Japanese high school.

Recommendations

- Both are cute little slice of life anime.
- Both revolve around a MC who transfers to a new school in a different place.
- Both have shoujo ai undertones but nothing too big, just fanservice.
- Both have an Ayaya- I mean, similar looking characters
- The girls' personalities are similar yet different.

A treat esp. for the slice of life fans or "cute girls doing cute things' lovers.
Cute slice of life with yuri undertones.
