Set in an adorable and peaceful fantasy world full of lush greenery, Hakumei to Mikochi follows the peaceful forest-dweller lives of two teeny tiny girls named Hakumei and Mikochi. Standing only nine centimeters (3.5”) tall, they build their homes in tree trunks, make leaf umbrellas, and even hitch rides with beetles as they enjoy their little life together.

Written by Takuto Kashiki, Hakumei to Mikochi is a Japanese manga series that premiered in 2011 in the Enterbrain seinen magazine Fellows!, now known as Harta. There have been five tankobon volumes released as of February 2018. A TV anime adaptation premiered on Jan. 12, 2018 and an original video animation will come in the second Blu-ray/DVD volume to be released in June. The anime is licensed by Sentai Filmworks and is available to stream on HIDIVE with subtitles in English, Latin American Spanish, and Portuguese.
