Series Summary from ANN:
The story is set several centuries into the slow decline of mankind. Earth has now become the realm of "fairies" — 10-centimeter-tall (about 4-inch-tall) creatures with remarkable intelligence. The human protagonist of the story serves an important duty as the international arbitrator between the fairies and humans, and she returns to her former hometown of Kusunoki. She chose this job because she thought it was an easy job she can do, even when she is as old as her grandfather. However, she learns that her job is anything but simple when she meets the fairies.
Kenn's Comment: The staff looks great on this. Both Kishi Seiji and Uezu Makoto worked on two of my favourite series to date: Sunred and 瀬戸の花嫁 (Seto no Hanayome, My Bride is a Mermaid). They're also the ones behind Kamisama Dolls, as well as a bunch of other series, so I'm really looking forward to this one.

Another thing to note about this series is that it's based off a novel...that's told completely in first person. I'm almost certain that the protagonist (私, I) is never named. As I stated in the prepost part, it's a look at modern society using both the cute faeries as well as a more satirical look at the way we live our lives (surrounded by technology).
