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.
Both are pretty funky shows that take place in a slightly askew futuristic world. Similar music and art. Similarly wild characters and improbable situations and scenes. Nice gun fights. The babe in Michiko is similar to Fay from Cowboy Bebop--gutsy, scantily clad, nonchalantly violent.
There are adventures, good music, chases and shootouts and a little bit of drama. But is not the case, the main rhythm, rhythm was definitely one and the same.
Soundtrack with an abundance of actual songs that aren't your average anime stuff. Huge mix of nicely shaken popculture tropes and brilliantly directed episodic structure with satisfying conclusion. Rare thing among modern anime.
Both shows give off the same vibe, as episodic but character driven entertainment, with high speed action, situational comedy and a tinge of melacholy. Thoroughly recommend both.
Even though the premise is different, Michiko to Hatchin has a very similar vibe to cowboy Bebop. Both stories are wild west stories build around a futuristic 70's style universe. Where Bebop had the bounty hunter's gallivanting all over the place looking for their big payday theme; Michiko has a classic wild west bandits on the run premise. The similar feel might be because Shinichiro Watanabe was the music director for Michiko to Hatchin. But even if you don't think they're similar, I'm sure you'll enjoy Michiko if you liked Bebop.
Both are about searching for a loved one, with ties to the criminal underworld. They both have strong character designs, fluid animation and the same humour. They both also with hold information from the viewer, slowly revealing the story through flashbacks and conversation.
Both are silly without loosing the ability to deliver a dramatic message. Both use a linear narrative to tell a coherent story. Both have a strong ensemble cast. Both use quirky characters within a group dynamic to drive the story forward. Both are top notch entertainment where every episode is worth watching.
Bebop's episodic nature makes it a better standalone series and allows it to play more freely with genres and styles.
Michiiko's more continuous narrative allows for better character growth which builds deeper attachments to the various characters.
Both have a very interesting soundtrack featuring Jazz. Both have good action and plot. While the Bebop crew are bounty hunters, Michiko is looking to reunite with Hatchin's father.
If you liked Cowboy Bebops, "cool" yet collective kind of vibes this anime has the same feel and sense adventure.
Might have something to do with it being the same people who made it. ;)
Watanabe, Shinichiro look at his picture on myanimelist, those shades say "cool" ;)
Both series have a protagonist that is searching for their love. Both offer heavily individual-theme episodes while building the over-arching plot up. Michiko to Hatchin offers a bit more interaction between the main characters while Cowboy Bebop offers more themes in the ep.
Both also offer outstanding music (made by the same person).. so check it out
Both anime have:
-Kickass main character
-Good character development
-Amazing art with really fluid animations especially the fight scenes.
-Main character that is looking for someone from their past
-Nearly realistic characters
-Some episodes that are stand alone.
If you like Cowboy Bebop you'll probably enjoy Michiko to Hatchin. They have similar style language, artwork and music.
Michiko to Hatchin and Cowboy Bebop struck me as very similar series. After all, Watanabe produced Michiko so it's not surprise that he'd take an interest in a series similar to his previous works. Both prove to be very stylish and musical. Cowboy Bebop has jazzy roots whilst Michiko has a more south american influence on the soundtrack. However, Michiko has a very jazzy opening. Both are very episodic but will occasionally have overarching plots that span multiple episodes. Both series are definitely, in my opinion at least, underrated. Bebop should be at 9 while Michiko should be at least 8.5. All in all, fun,
Both are similar in their episodic nature, as almost any episode can be watched on it's own. Strong characters, even supporting characters can stand out. Unique settings that aren't seen often in other anime. Fast-paced action and upbeat, well-done soundtrack. Also produced by Shinichiro Watanabe (director of Cowboy Bebop).
Both are from the same author and have similar plot style.
Gritty stylized anime focusing on a few characters that grow over the 22 episode run time. It has beautiful animation mixed with a great soundtrack creating some amazing set pieces that lead into a good story which does an incredible job of making itself enjoyable and resolving itself. Most of its filler episodes are enjoyable to the degree that they are not too annoying but they do slow down the plot a bit. Overall a good choice if your looking for something that might be aimed at a slightly older audience than average anime, especially if your tired of high school.
