Time for another fairy tale episode. This one is based on Issun Boshi: The One-Inch Boy. Here’s a five minute short I found on youtube. In some versions of the tale, he gets a hammer called Uchide no kozuchi that grants wishes. He used it to change to normal size. As such, this hammer shows up in a lot of stories and video games where size changing is involved. It’s also the basis of Kyuemon Izayoi’s hammer in Ninninger.
Speaking of size changing heroes, go see Ant-Man.
