A special unit formed by the five voice actresses who play the main characters of the TV anime Kiniro Mosaic, which began airing in July 2013. The unit’s name, Rhodanthe, comes from the flower. Symbolically, this flower represents “unchanging thoughts,” which matches the theme of the anime.
They made their CD debut in July 2013 with the single “Jumping!!/Your Voice.” Their first solo concert was held at Zepp Tokyo in May 2014.
In 2015, they released “Yumeiro Parade,” the theme song of Hello!! Kiniro Mosaic, the second season of the anime. In September of the same year, they released an album, which ranked 11th on the Oricon Weekly Chart.
On New Year’s Day in 2016, they held a concert at the Tokyo International Forum.
Although the anime has ended, they have continued doing the radio show Oshaberi Mosaic on the Radio Supporters Club, a members-only smartphone website.
