Anime you should be watching episode #2 Michiko e Hatchin
Ask yourself if you liked Cowboy Bebop or Samurai Champloo. If you said yes to either than you need to check out Michiko e Hatchin. It’s a slick combination of a well told story, beautiful animation and stylized action sequences. In other words, its dripping with f*&^!n awesomeness. To play devils advocate against myself I’ll also warn that if you didn’t like the slow parts in between the action parts in either of the aforementioned anime then you will not like this one either.
Note: When I say slow parts, that’s code for “well told and paced story” but some people demand non stop action and can’t appreciate a moment of artistic silence within the time stream of an anime.
Very brief synopsis: the show is about a little girl who is sprung from an abusive situation in a foster home by her mother that she has never met who just broke out of prison. (Crazy right? But that’s it in a nut shell.)
If after you watch it you are left wondering why it is so similar to Bebop and Champloo its because it shares many of the same people including the same music director for all three anime.
