Bunch of Oddballs

Well, with the emotional stuff out of the way, I feared that the enjoyment of this series would drop all of a sudden. Who would’ve thought it would still manage to give a fight with its array of comedic puns.

Well, considering KyoAni shifted to MANSERVICE, Kinmoza is one of the appealing moe-blob anime that this season had to offer. And I honestly appreciate how this series manages its comedy through their difference of culture and language.

I really thought Satomi Satou would start speaking in English

It would be a shame if the protagonists hog all the spotlight so I really appreciate knowing that the other characters have a couple of loose screws. Though, I guess it’s a bit “one-sided” that they get to orient Alice with Japanese culture and learn so little from her side of the world.

Well, it seems that the gang would be complete next episode with the appearance of Nao Toyama’s character. I do hope she’s a bigger nutcase than what we’ve seen so far.

    Alice is moe indeed :p. Well, they all are ;). I do agree that this looks to be the “moe-blob” anime of the season XD.

    I don’t absolutely adore this show, but it is undeniably sweet. I went into this show expecting more comedy than straight-up cute, but it actually seems to be the other way around – which isn’t necessarily a bad thing. I had a lingering fear that Kiniro Mosaic would rely on the ditzy otaku foreigner stereotype for its laughs, but so far it’s had more ‘awwww’ factor than anything else. I can definitely live with that.

    I think this series still exploit such stereotype but do so discreetly. From a perspective, we see Alice as a “foreigner” in the country of Japan but looking at it differently, Shinobu’s lifestyle makes her a “foreigner” to Alice’s culture. Not to be taken literally though, but it feels like this series is exploiting more of Shinobu’s “limited understanding” of western culture than the other way around. But yeah, the balance of comedy and dose of moe creates that acceptable “sweetness” that makes this show enjoyable.
