Sentai Filmworks Adds Hakumei and Mikochi Anime

hakumei and mikochiSentai Filmworks started rolling out more announcements for the upcoming winter 2018 season of anime, including a nice-looking tale of small forest girls, Hakumei and Mikochi. Based on the manga by Takuto Kashiki, directed by 07 Ghost‘s Masaomi Andou, and produced at anime studio Lerche (Assassination Classroom), Hakumei and Mikochi will soon be streaming on HIDIVE, with a home video release to follow.

Sentai describes the story like so:

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.

Also coming along with the winter 2018 season is Takunomi, based on the manga by Haruto Hino and produced at Production IMS. This one will also be streaming via HIDIVE and coming to home video later.



‘Takunomi‘ follows the story of Michiru Amatsuki, a 20-year-old woman who just moved to Tokyo to change jobs. She lives in apartment 101 of Stella House Haruno, an all-female boarding house. There, she meets other women of different ages, jobs, and personalities. They all have something in common though: their love for good food and drinks.
