Sentai Filmworks Announce License for Kinmoza!
The British are coming! The British are coming! Coming to Sentai Filmworks that is. During this years Anime Expo, the company have been firing off anime acquisition announcements left right and center with another one being Kinmoza!.

When Shinobu was still in middle school, she had the amazing opportunity to study in England while living with a host family as an exchange student. And while that was several years ago and she still doesn’t do all that well in English class, Shinobu has had warm feelings for everything English ever since. So when Shinobu learns that the daughter of her host family, Alice Cartelet, is coming to stay with her and study in Japan, she’s thrilled. But will Alice be able to fit in with Shinobu’s Japanese schoolfriends, Youko and Aya? And how will the arrival of Shinobu’s old rival Karen, who’s half-English and half-Japanese, affect the potential culture clash? Every day is an adventure in international diplomacy and self discovery as a group of schoolgirls learn new lessons about each other and themselves in KIMOZA!
The good news is that as with many of their announcements this weekend the series will be available as a digital stream this month – with a home video release to follow in 2014.
