Kin-iro Mosaic Characters

Shinobu Omiya

Voiced by: Asuka Nishi

Alice Cartalet

Voiced by: Manami Tanaka

  • A-Cup Angst
  • Anime Accent Absence
  • Clingy Jealous Girl: For Shino, especially when Karen or Karasuma-sensei comes between them.
  • Flower Motifs: According to her character song, Alice's is the Camellia japonica (Japanese Camellia).
  • Girlish Pigtails
  • Hair of Gold, Heart of Gold: An adorably sweet girl with blonde hair.
  • Height Angst: Is rather sensitive about her small stature.
  • Heroic BSOD: In episode 11, she temporarily "forgets" how to speak Japanese because she is afraid Shino no longer likes her due to becoming Japanized.
  • The Ingenue: She looks like a child in any way possible, physically and mentally. A little point in Episode 8: she still needs Shinobu to take her to the bathroom in midnight!
  • Nice Girl: Sweet, kind-hearted, caring, friendly, and compassionate. Heck, she even helps cheer Shino up when she found out that Shino didn't do that well in the math test.
  • Older Than She Looks: Alice is roughly around the same age as Shinobu, yet her petite size makes her pass her as an elementary or middle school student. You're right, Alice, an English girl, is small by Japanese standards.
  • Phenotype Stereotype: Blond and blue-eyed.
  • Shrinking Violet: Alice is extremely so when Shinobu was living in her house; even now she's still very shy.
  • Token Mini-Moe

Aya Komichi

Voiced by: Risa Taneda

Yoko Inokuma

Voiced by: Yumi Uchiyama

  • Big Eater: Youko, who's hungry enough to eat her lunch before school on top of breakfast.
  • Cute Little Fangs
  • Flower Motifs: According to her character song, Youko's is the Hydrangea.
  • Genki Girl: Has some shades of this.
  • Nice Girl: Lampshaded in Karen's pie chart describing her as "50% comedic retorts, 50% kind-hearted."
  • Oblivious to Love: And how. When the class is split up for the new school year, she had no idea why Aya would be upset. The anime even lampshades it, outright spelling out "DENSE" onscreen.
  • Red Oni: To Aya's blue.
  • Straight Man

Karen Kujo

Voiced by: Nao Touyama

Isami Omiya

Voiced by: Yukari Tamura

  • Big Sister Instinct: Isami has a serious case of it. Her animated cell phone background is all pictures of Shinobu, Yoko, and their friends.
  • Cool Big Sis: For Yoko in particular, as Yoko has no older siblings of her own to look up to.
  • Gender-Blender Name: Kanji-wise her name means "courage," which is hardly feminine. Any femininity comes from the slightly feminine-sounding Alternate Character Reading.

Sakura Karasuma

Voiced by: Satomi Sato

  • Meganekko
  • Sensei-chan: Lampshaded in Alice's "cast as a family" dream in Episode 11, where Karasuma was Shinobu's sister, while Aya is the mother and Youko is the grandfather.
