North American anime licensing company Sentai Filmworks announced on Sunday that it acquired the Jinrui wa Suitai Shimashita television anime series. The anime will be available soon through select digital outlets with a home video release to follow next year. Crunchyroll announced on Friday that it is streaming the anime as it airs in Japan.
Romeo Tanaka's Jinrui wa Suitai Shimashita light novel series 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. 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.
The series debuted on July 1, and Seiji Kishi (Angel Beats!, Persona 4 the Animation) is directing it at the anime studio AIC A.S.T.A.
