Shannon Reed is directing the adaptation. Sentai started streaming a teaser for the dub, which you can check out below.

Hakumei and Mikochi is based on Takuto Kashiki’s manga of the same name. Masaomi Andō (Muv-Luv Alternative: Total Eclipse, School-Live!) directed the project at Lerche, with Tomoko Iwasa (Kasimasi – Girl Meets Girl, Junod) providing character designs. Reiko Yoshida (Bakuman., Girls und Panzer) was in charge of series composition.

Sentai Filmworks describes the show as:

Hakumei and Mikochi are two small girls who live together in a tiny house in the great big forest. In fact, their house is so tiny that it all fits inside just one tree! But that’s fine because Hakumei and Mikochi are only 3.5 inches tall, so their tree is as big to them as a skyscraper is to normal people! They’re not the only tiny people living in their community either, and when Hakumei and Mikochi aren’t out exploring, they like to spend their time visiting their neighbors, some of whom are other small folk like the inventor Sen and Konju the songstress, while others are beetles, squirrels and even a big scary owl who is definitely not friendly! For a whole new perspective on life, come look at the world from a different angle with HAKUMEI AND MIKOCHI!
