Synopsis

After escaping from prison, the sexy criminal Michiko rescues an abused girl known as Hatchin. The two are about as opposite as they come, but their fates become intertwined through the connection of a man from both their pasts. On the run from the police and Hatchin's abusive foster parents, the unlikely duo set out to find this man and ultimately discover their freedom.

What would you get if you crossed Thelma & Louise with City of God? You may get complete drivel, or you may, if you're very lucky, get something like Michiko to Hatchin.

Manglobe, the production company (and the brains behind), Michiko to Hatchin, have really pushed the boat out with this anime. But then again, they're no strangers to success or quality, especially as they are the company responsible for Ergo Proxy and Samurai Champloo. The series was directed by Yamamoto Sayo and is effectively her first full time at the helm of a production, and whilst this may have been a gamble on the part read more

Anime that are set out of Japan whilst not as uncommon as many may think are still few and far between but what is even more rare is an anime that takes place in Latin America. Michiko to Hatchin is representative of everything that is uncommon but amazing about the anime industry: it has style, nice characters, a unique setting and a vast array of themes, and whilst at times it is harsh it never forgets to be light-hearted in its ingenuity.

Michiko to hatchin's story is rather unusually executed; my original impressions was that the series was episodic but upon completion that statement was a read more

In a world plunged into an immoral wasteland, it is often difficult to find friends and comrades that you can believe in. The cold brutality of the situation may be that you simply can’t. But sometimes a slight glimmer of hope remains amid the tumult and chaos, that maybe perhaps you really do have a partner out there, a comrade that will stick with you and care for you to the very end.

The world depicted in “Michiko to Hatchin” is this wasteland, a setting fraught with greed and death amid the indigent and the impoverished. This is South America (Brazil), or rather a variation of read more

After watching the ending tonight, I can finally say that this is a fantastic piece of work that is fresh breath of air in the anime industry. This came from the same studio who did Samurai Champloo, and if you're familiar with that you can expect about the same from Michiko to Hatchin. The main story line being: it's not the destination, it's the journey.

This anime is so multicultural with beautiful art and flawless character designs, seiyuus, the list goes on and on. You will have an attraction to almost every character in this show, that goes for the antagonists/cruel natured characters, and read more

Recommendations

they both have the same coool feeling and both have a jazzy starting. Only one is a criminal escaped from prison and the other a Bounty hunter.
I would recommend Black Lagoon the 1st and 2nd season as a similar anime to Michiko to Hatchin. Both seem to happen in some spanish territory. We can see lots of action, guns, mafia, pursuits. Michiko is quite similar to Revy. Both main characters are strong, independent women with a unique personality and complex past.
I would say Black Lagoon TV series are the best equivalent to Michiko to Harchin.
Have a similar sharp visual style plus a modern edginess.
Both series based in a similar location--Latin America. The basic plot structure is also the same. Two girls are running away/towards something. The relationship between the two female leads in each series differs slightly.
Journey of two strangers that grows closer and devolope famillial affection. Cast of great characters and bittersweet conclusion
The music and animation are very similar. Both shows are full of energy. Like a FLCL, the main character is very young sharing her thoughts on the way of adults world.
