HOUSTON, July 1, 2012 — Sentai Filmworks is pleased to announce its latest acquisition: Jinrui Wa Suitai Shimashita.

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.
