Plot Summary: It has been several centuries since human population has declined. Food has become harder to find and what little sources the humans have are considered highly valuable. The most prosperous species on the Earth are “Fairies”, 10 cm tall creatures with high intelligence and a great love for sweets. A nameless girl, the main character, became a UN arbitrator between the humans and the fairies and had returned to her hometown to help her grandfather. One day, the village is sent some strange products made by a company called FairyCo. Since the villagers are wary of using the products, the girl, her grandfather, and a nameless boy decide to go to the factory to find out about the mysterious products and who is behind making them.
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE SENTAI FILMWORKS LICENSES “JINRUI WA SUITAI SHIMASHITA”
HOUSTON, July 1, 2012 — Sentai Filmworks is pleased to announce its latest acquisition: Jinrui Wa Suitai Shimashita. Directed by Seiji Kishi (Angel Beats!, Kamisama Dolls), featuring character designs by Kyuuta Sakai (Steins;Gate, Strawberry Marshmellow) series composition by Makoto Uezu (Qwaser of Stigmata, Kamisama Dolls) and music by Ko Otani (Another, Hakuoki).
For years, declining birth rates have forced what’s left of the human race to cede more and more territory to other beings who have appeared to take advantage of the emptying ecological niche. Now, only a handful of humans remain among the remnants of civilization and Earth is dominated by faeries – tiny, ten-inch tall creatures of surprising intelligence. But humanity’s importance isn’t over quite yet, as young Watashi learns as she makes the decision to return to her hometown and assume her grandfather’s position as an arbitrator between the races. Unfortunately, the job isn’t going to be anywhere near as simple as she expected, and it’s going to take a wisdom far beyond her years to achieve her most important mission. Because it’s not about how often you fall and fail, it’s about how often you get back up and try again, and the human race still has a lot left to accomplish in JINRUI WA SUITAI SHIMASHITA.
Jinrui Wa Suitai Shimashita will be available soon through select digital outlets with a home video release to follow next year.
