Synopsis

For years, declining birth rates have forced what's left of the human race to cede more and more territory to other beings who have appeared to take advantage of the emptying ecological niche. Now, only a handful of humans remain among the remnants of civilization and Earth is dominated by faeries —tiny, ten-inch tall creatures of surprising intelligence. But humanity's importance isn't over quite yet, as young Watashi learns as she makes the decision to return to her hometown and assume her grandfather's position as an arbitrator between the races. Unfortunately, the job isn't going to be anywhere near as simple as she expected, and it's going to take a wisdom far beyond her years to achieve her most important mission.

To learn and evolve is a natural process of human nature. But after countless mistakes, does this growth still hold any meaning? What then, if the consequences are so severe that amending the situation becomes impossible?

For Jinrui wa Suitai Shimashita, this is answered through a colorful world where humanity is on the verge of extinction, succeeded by a race of silly, mass-producing fairies bearing a constant grin. Adorable and amusing as they are, these little creatures are anything but auspicious. Repeating tragedy in situations of utter insanity, the fairies exist as a personification of humanity's follies, neatly told through a clever story of satire read more

~Multilangual review, English & Español: Humanity has Declined~.

"I always thought of humans as intelligent dominoes, since they tend to follow each other." — Okashi-chan

Humanity Has Declined is sure an interesting title for an anime, it’s one of those that let our imagination fly freely trying to guess what the anime is about before even start to watching it, sometimes this lead us to imagine a complete different anime from what is in reality, leaving in us a satisfactory feeling, or in others cases, a pinch of disappointment when we actually find the true after watching the first episodes, revealing to be something completely different read more

What is will be left once we are gone? The premise of a post-apocalyptic future is one that is immensely intriguing and relevant in a world in which such a scenario could easily become reality. Yet it is also a topic that has already been exhaustively explored in a myriad of past works. Thankfully, Jinrui wa Suitai Shimashita, or "Humanity has Declined," deviates from the beaten path-- it deals not with a future ravaged by destructive capabilities of our own hands, but one marked by a much slower and inevitable fate for humankind. And, unlike its predecessors, Jinrui wa Suitai Shimashita seamlessly combines the lighthearted read more

Based on the title, the average individual would probably conjure projections of some bleak and black post-apocalyptic world. Based on the show's artwork, the average individual would conjure preconceptions of some bright and fuzzy fantasy setting. It's really neither, and yet it's kind of both, and that's one of the things that makes Humanity has Declined both refreshing and intriguing.

Produced by AIC, Humanity has Declined was adapted from a light novel series of the same name by Tanaka Romeo. Direction was handled by Kishi Seiji, Script, by Makoto Uezu. Character designs, original and anime, respectively, were drawn up by Sunaho Tobe and Kyuuta Sakai. As read more

These Anime take the world and twist the reality. What could possibly be a normally a happy go lucky story line has dark twists to it.

Both deal with human nature and doubts in metaphorical way.

Both of these Anime have very different story lines, but they have a similar art style and they take their genre and do something different with it.

Anime: Kamisama no Inai Nichiyoubi
In both, mankind numbers dwindle to very low. Atmosphere seems similar too

Anime: Moyashimon
The main characters in both shows are witty and sarcastic and have unique communications with tiny, cute creatures. A similar dark humor is frequently used in the two series that appeals to a more mature audience. Both shows also have clear morals about society.
