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.

For me Iyashikei is a mixed bag. While I usually find myself enjoying them somewhat, often times the shows focus too much on the healing ascepts without anything deeper under them. While the nice simple moments of life are nice, it can get repetitive if that is all a show has to offer. Luckily in the case of Hakumei to Mikochi there is so much more that it has to offer.

Hakumei to Mikochi features a unique setting that it uses the fullest of it's potential. Each element of its setting is explored and is fully thought out. It's not just a bunch of random ...

Hakumei to Mikochi is what life is all about folks. Kickback, relax, it's time to see pure joy and happiness wrap you up in a warm blanket of kindness.

The plot of HtM is no War and Peace. It's simple, but deliberately so, we all came here to leave some stress to the side and enjoy the childlike wonder of main characters. The characters are adorable little puffies and their design perfectly fits with the mood of the show. Their soft and rounded features emanate cuteness and their surroundings are so earthly and homey that you it creates an atmosphere of utmost comfort.

The music expands ...

This is a bad Iyashikei imo. A soulless adaptation of a great manga. The music and backgrounds are nice, but the way they're used is very uninspired, and every other aspect of this show, especially the direction, feels completely flat and lifeless.

This flatness is especially present in the camerawork, with pointless manga-like panels, flowery borders and movement suggested by zooming backgrounds. All of these, combined with mediocre (on-model but unexpressive) animation and fake-looking computer-generated scratchy lines, put this show a long way from the eyecandy that is the manga.

You'd think that the main appeal of this show would be its small scale. However, the ...
