Meanwhile, the mature male idol anime Eternal Boys will be released starting on March 19, 2023. Fuji Creative Corporation describes the anime as: 

“The Mature Idol Project”

The latest project proposed by Manpuku Entertainment Productions, in a bid to revive the company. Experienced in the successes and failures of the business world, 6 middle-aged men now face the many hurdles of age and physical ability, whilst pursuing their goal to become idols.

In an effort to prove that old dogs can learn new tricks, and that you can still learn to shine no matter your age, these middle-aged men, at the end of their ropes, are taking a stand!

For Kin-iro Mosaic! (KINMOZA) fans, the Pretty Days OVA and Thank You!! will both be released on February 13, 2023. 

HIDIVE describes Kin-iro Mosaic! Pretty Days as: 

Shinobu has to write a script and make costumes for a school play, and it’s a lot of work for one person. Fortunately for Shinobu’s theatrical future, Alice, Yoko, and Aya are glad to pitch in, and that allows for a chance to reflect on their experiences in the days before Alice arrived. Will everything be finished in time, or will the audience be in stitches because of the ones coming apart onstage?

HIDIVE also describes Kin-iro Mosaic: Thank You!! as: 

Alice, Shinobu, Aya, and Yoko have truly become the best of friends, but since it’s their last year, they must split their time between preparing for the big senior trip to Nara and Kyoto and trying to make plans for whatever is to come next in their lives… and in Shinobu’s case, that may mean something so amazing that she’d never even dared to dream it!
