The February Gahō flyer insert from Shogakukan's Gagaga Bunko imprint has announced that an anime project is in the works for Romeo Tanaka's Jinrui wa Suitai Shimashita light novel series.
The story is set several centuries into the slow decline of mankind. Earth has now become the realm of "fairies" — 10-centimeter-tall (about 4-inch-tall) creatures with remarkable intelligence and an appetite for sweets. The human protagonist of the story serves an important duty as the international arbitrator between the fairies and humans, and she returns to her former hometown of Kusunoki. She chose this job because she thought it was an easy job she can do, even when she is as old as her grandfather. However, she learns that her job is anything but simple when she meets the fairies.
Tōru Yamasaki illustrates the light novel volumes, and the sixth volume is shipping this week. Another artist, Rei Neyuki, launched a manga version in Shogakukan's Monthly Ikki magazine last year.
The following is a promotional video for the light novel series:
