Sentai Filmworks Wins Big with the Small Forest Girls of HAKUMEI AND MIKOCHI
They are just 9 centimeters tall, but these little fairies of HAKUMEI AND MIKOCHI (ハクメイとミコチ, Hakumei to Mikochi, 2018) will start their adventures as Sentai Filmworks’ new acquisition for the Winter 2018 season.
While Hakumei is cheerful, outgoing and prefers to be outside, Mikochi is more introverted and prefers to stay indoors. These differences will set the tone for their friendship. Riding on insects and birds, creating tools from the forest and living their normal lives, they’ll show us how day to day chores can be the biggest adventure in a small world full of wonders.
HAKUMEI AND MIKOCHI is an adaptation of the manga by Takuto Kashiki. It is directed by Masaomi Andou (07 GHOST, FAIRY TALE) and produced by Lerche (ASSASSINATION CLASSROOM, MONSTER MUSUME: EVERYDAY LIFE WITH MONSTER GIRLS). It includes elements from the Slice of Life, Seinen and Fantasy genres that will give dynamism to their small forest lives.
HAKUMEI AND MIKOCHI is scheduled for a January 2018 broadcast in Japan. It will soon be available to stream on HIDIVE, with a home video release to follow.
