Chiisai Nozomi to Ōki na Yume about 12-cm girl's daily adventure

This year's sixth issue of Kodansha's Morning two magazine announced on Monday that Sou Hamayumiba will launch a new manga series titled Chiisai Nozomi to Ōki na Yume (Little Nozomi and Big Yume or Little Nozomi and Big Dreams) in the seventh issue on May 22. The manga will start with two chapters in one issue, including a color page, and that issue will also put the new manga on its cover. "Morning two's first new series in the Reiwa era" is also Hamayumiba's first-ever series in the magazine.

The story follows "the daily adventure of a palm-sized high school girl in a studio apartment." (The girl is 12 centimeters or 4.7 inches tall.)

Hamayumiba's Hanayamata manga about girls in traditional Japanese dancing inspired a television anime in 2012, before the manga ended in February 2018. Hamayumiba's Ochikobore Fruit Tart manga about aspiring idols is also receiving a television anime adaptation.
