It looks like the British-Japanese cultural exchange is about to end. The January 2020 issue of Manga Time Kirara Max has just hit the shelves, and it comes with a major announcement. According to the magazine, Yui Hara’s Kiniro Mosaic manga, also known as KINMOZA, is ending very soon. In fact, it’s ending in just four chapters.
The manga follows a very typical Japanese girl named Shinobu, as well as a British girl who loves Japanese culture named Alice. Here’s how Anime News Network describes its story:
Shinobu Omiya is a 15 year old girl who had once did a homestay in Great Britain when she was 10 years old. She met a blonde, extremely shy, English girl named Alice Cartalet. Once getting to know each other, and getting past the language barrier issue, the two became close friends. On Shinobu’s last day in England, Alice makes a promise that she will come visit Japan someday. 5 years later, Shinobu receives a letter from Alice stating that she is coming to Japan. And on the same day of receiving the letter Alice appears at Shinobu’s school, revealing that she has transferred to her class and will be staying at her house.
So, with the manga ending, it looks like we’re saying goodbye to Alice, Karen, Shinobu, and the rest of the gang! It surely was one of the more memorable moe manga, and has touched the hearts of many people.
