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.

Have a similar sharp visual style plus a modern edginess.

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.

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.

Both shows are centered around the underground, crime filled lifestyle. Both of the shows are influenced by drugs, gangs, sex, and violence which add together into the overall gritty, slummy, and bleak atmosphere. Michiko to Hatchin differs however by having a quite different approach to it's story by presenting a more linear plot while Gangsta' story line appears to be driven more through character development.

Journey of two strangers that grows closer and devolope famillial affection. Cast of great characters and bittersweet conclusion

There is something about the way the two stories are told. There's the same sense of a story not necessarily told in chronological order, that slowly reveals more and more of the plot as it goes on. There is violence in both these shows, and a focus on several characters, although Michiko to Hatchin stays mostly with those two. It's a great combo of violence and plot in both of these anime.

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.

Both are about the adventures of two young girls who ride motorcycles. Kino no tabi is definitely calmer while Michiko to Hatchin has quite a bit more action and drama, but both of them make you feel like you got more out of them than just entertainment.

Illegitimate children and unsuspecting adults come together to make a half working family. I'm done with a little more than half of Michiko to Hatchin and a couple episodes of Usagi Drop, but these two definitely have some strong resonance with each other. At its heart, these two Josei stories are about the relationships between each series' respective main character pairs. We have two orphaned kids, Hatchin and Rin, find comfort, joy, and--undoubtedly--quite a bit of mishaps in their odd relationship they share with their future guardians, the gutsy Michiko and milder Daikichi. That being said, however, prepare for a dramatic split in other areas. Michiko to  read more

Both contain occasional fast paced action, both are more modern/alternative world western style stories with bank roberies, riding into sunsets, standoffs, "sheriff" (detective) chasing after a criminal.

This is a very similar to Witchblade. If you're looking for mother-child relationship, or in accurate a women and a little girl caring for her, then this is what you seek next. These two series are in a totally different genre from each there, but they hold that point that will make you appreciate the bond between these two girls, and the thrilling moments they've been passing through.

Although not exactly the first thing to come to mind when thinking of this anime, but Michiko to Hatchin and Spirited Away are both stories featuring realistically characterised and unsexualised young girls being thrown into a wildly different environment to what they are used to and dealing with it in their own way. The vivid colours, danger, and sense of adventure are present throughout both works; complementing the large cast of surreal and larger-than-life characters that our protagonists meet along the way. The overarching theme being the adaptability of girls; they can be naive, they can have flaws, they can be annoying, but they are also  read more

In both the protagonists are trying to catch someone. Very realistic world, both outsides Japan, Monster in Germany and Michiko to Hatchin in Brazil. M to H, have more action but Monster have more psychological development.

Both have a similar sense of adventure, and explore a well built world full of fleshed out characters with their own flaws and personalities. Both have an unique artstyle, even though they're very different from each other. Both deal with darker themes than you'd think when looking simply on the art. Personally I think both have amazing artstyle and animation, and both features very memorable and wonderful soundtracks.

There are two ways about those two. In Hidan no Aria, they will fight some criminals. But in Michiko to Hatching, they will fight some gang members. But the two characters are partners for each other to fight criminals and gang members.

Both shows are about the special bond (of friendship) gradually forming between two strikingly different females. 
report Recommended by Stray_Star
The relationship between two strong-minded women is the strongest point of these stories, it is groundbreaking and it's rarely seen in anime industry in general. At first, the protagonists are lonely women but end up finding their perfect companion, and I'm not talking about boyfriends, I'm talking about good friends who support them in the bad situations of life. Both are good in every aspect, the music and the animation are good, but what you'll find amazing is how good is the development of the characters, who change a lot throughout the series.

A simple and touched story about "Love and Hate" relationship between mother and her daughter 
report Recommended by Shunaria
Although they are not similar in a lot of ways, what they do have in common is the fantastic animation and character interactions. Michiko to Hatchin is created by the same creators of Samarai Champloo, so each and every episode of Michiko to Hatchin and Durarara!! is unique in the genre they take on. For example, one episode focuses on action, whereas another introduces a new character and relationship with others, and the other an outlook into a main character's past and personality. I hope you find Durarara!! and Michiko to Hatchin as enjoyable as either.

Lupin and Michiko are expert prison escapists who lead a police inspector on a wild cat & mouse chase. They survive the craziest of situations that have a similar cartoonish feel, like jumping over a cliff onto a moving ship and riding a motorbike over a row of houses. There's also plenty of car chases, gun fights, kidnappings, and romance to go around. Although Lupin III (2015) is set in Italy, and Michiko to Hatchin in a Brazilian-influenced fictional country, they're both rich in culture thanks to their vibrant, detailed environments. If this is your kind of entertainment, then be sure to check them both  read more

Similar interactions between the main characters (older-younger friendship). Beyond that they have great, more vivid art. Michiko to Hatchin is more of a comedy and kure-nai is more serious. They both, however, contain some serious ass kicking and comedy.

I would say all Black Lagoon TV series are the best equivalent to Michiko to Harchin.

First off, M+H pays homage to Ergo Proxy with an Easter Egg: several copies of the Vincent Law book (as seen taking up an entire library in Ergo Proxy) is seen in the show. But besides that, both feature some unique female leads that go on a journey.

Gun x Sword and Michiko to Hatchin feature and adult drifter traveling the lands who are soon acompanied by a level-headed child who more mature then they are. The adult and child teams face many dangers as they search for one person, along the way, both children become aware of the rough world they live in. Personally, I give both these a ten; neither are too predictable, neither feature overused anime cliche's and not being manga adaptations helps by eliminting the opportunity to plow ahead manually.

Both are great examples of the feminist propaganda (in a good sense, of course). 
report Recommended by ba_towel
Both are set in southern, very special countries- Brazil and Italy(Rome), both include an element of broken families and rejecting parents.
