Take something like the Borrowers or The Secret World of Arrietty and you’ll get a pretty good sense of what Hakumei & Mikochi is like. The manga details the day to day lives of two small people, Hakumei, an adventurous tinkerer, and Mikochi, a reserved tradesperson. The two live together in a tree hollow where they share adventures and good food.
Hakumei & Mikochi is laidback and sweet. The characters are likable, the art is wonderfully rendered, and the world building is a treat. I highly recommend the series if you’re looking for a quick read to unwind with.
