Mitsubachi Maya no Bouken

Synopsis: Maya, a newly angry bee, sees curiously about the world around her. Since birth, she is created to be a working bee, but it is difficult for her to understand and follow the strict rules of the hive because of her individuality and a strong desire for independence.

Having collected all honey around honeycomb, Maya decides to start an adventure to find a flower garden to collect more honey for the hive. Her intentions are noble, but because she leaves the hive without permission, the queen sends Maya Willy's friend to look for the small cause of trouble. Willy joins Maya in her search and, besides the family hive, the two friends marvel at the beauty that nature has to offer.

Through many experiences - sometimes pleasant, sometimes terrible or sad - and meetings with various insects, Mayans mature in a strong and wise bee.
