Sentai Filmworks announced on Wednesday that it has licensed the television anime adaptation of Takuto Kashiki's Hakumei to Mikochi: Tiny little life in the woods manga under the title Hakumei and Mikochi and will stream it this winter on HIDIVE. The company is also planning a home video release.
Sentai Filmworks describes the story:
While Hakumei is cheerful, outgoing and prefers to be outside, Mikochi is more introverted and prefers to stay indoors. These differences will set the tone for their friendship. Riding on insects and birds, creating tools from the forest and living their normal lives, they'll show us how day to day chores can be the biggest adventure in a small world full of wonders.
The anime will premiere in Japan on AT-X on January 12 at 9:00 p.m. In addition, the series will air on Tokyo MX, Sun TV, KBS Kyoto, TV Aichi, TVQ Kyushu Broadcasting Co., Ltd., and BS11. The anime will stream in Japan exclusively on Amazon Prime.
