In a world inhabited by people only a few inches tall, young women Hakumei and Mikochi live together in a house built into a tree. Hakumei is an energetic and tomboyish carpenter, while Mikochi is a feminine and calm tailor. Despite their differences, they get along well and spend their days having fun living their lives in the woods.

The two of them spend their time working, going on sightseeing adventures, and taking shopping trips into Tsumiki Marketplace by the ocean. They make many friends along the way, be they sentient woodland creatures like Iwashi the Weasel or fellow miniature people such as the songstress Konju and the inventor Sen.

Hakumei to Mikochi is a relaxing look into the day-to-day lives of its titular characters as they explore and interact with their tiny world which seems to be straight out of a fairy tale.

Hakumei to Mikochi is a beautiful anime. At first the the story begins in a mild soft manner, however suddenly dynamic actions scenes are thrown in with a splash of drama. It gives you the feeling that we were dropped in the middle of an already developed set of characters without wasting too much time on backstory. The art that stood out were the background, landscape, and cityscape moments. There wasn't much to music other that to accompany the storyline which was okay. Overall it is a not overly cute, provides a great get way feeling and is over too quickly.

Note: Both ...

Hakumei and Mikochi is a series I initially skipped out on when it first aired. Not for any reason, as the premise did appeal to my tastes and I put it on my list of anime I planned to watch, but at the time it came out, I was burnt out on anime. From 2010 to the end of 2015, I watched a ton of anime...but after I graduated college, I felt myself unable to watch even a single episode per month unless it was a new episode of Pokemon. A number of things contributed to this for me: Too much time on my hands, ...

Preliminary (1/12 eps)
They're just eating 70% of the story time... and that's it...

Other 30% is some other utterly boring routine loitering, imposing an imitation of a bleak trace of emotion on totally cartoon characters.

I can't possibly fathom the stark emptiness of lives of those who consider this anime even slightly entertaining.

They want the review to be 500 chars min, but there's really nothing to say about this particular piece. So the only thing I can do is apologize for wasting your time - the only thing you have in your life - by writing more words than you need to read.
