Lilliputians (Tiny People) in Anime

These extremely tiny people - sometimes referred to as lilliputians - often face a number of challenges living in a normal human-sized world. They might live alongside humans openly or in secret, or live deep in the forest or other rural places humans are less likely to dwell. Getting eaten or stepped on by bigger creatures is a real concern, though tiny people are often portrayed as a friend to animals who are able to communicate with them and ride them for transportation. In some cases, ordinary people become tiny people due to a magic spell or transformation item.

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.

Deep in the forest, there is a village where a community of tiny pixies dwell. They all work hard to take care of themselves and each other, but being less than an inch tall, everyday life can present quite a challenge!

The Secret World of Arrietty

For nearly fourteen years, Arrietty has lived with her parents under the floorboards of a house. As 'tiny people', the family must remain hidden from humans, 'borrowing' items from them such as postage stamps or herbs to cook with. Arrietty is old enough to borrow for the first time, and alongside her father, the two explore the house in search of tissue and sugar. But when the pair is spotted by Sho, a boy who is visiting his great aunt, Arrietty's parents fear for their safety. However, unlike her family, Arrietty is convinced that not all humans are dangerous, and together she and Sho form an unlikely friendship.
