    Sentai Filmworks Wins Big with the Small Forest Girls of 'Hakumei and Mikochi'

    HOUSTON, TX, DECEMBER 27, 2017 - They are just 9 centimeters tall, but these little fairies 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. 'Hakumi 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.

    Wow, I would've thought for sure they would put this at least on Anime Strike, interesting.

      While I was expecting Sentai to license this, I never thought that it would go to HIDIVE. Seeing that Amazon had this exclusively in Japan that I would have expected it to be the same in America through Anime Strike, but apparently not. It's a good thing I'm planning to be subscribed to HIDIVE in lieu of my usual winter bingefest seeing that everything Sentai has announced so far is on HIDIVE this season. I guess that fans were so fed up with it being delayed on Anime Strike that it may have pushed them to at least ax the exclusiveness on Amazon.
