Average Rating

Under the unrelenting heat of the South American sun, hardened criminal Michiko Malandro breaks out of a high security prison for the fourth time in search of a man from her past. Michiko finds a clue in the form of Hana Morenos, a young girl trapped under the fists of her abusive foster family. In her powerlessness, Hana fantasizes about the day when she is finally whisked away from her captors by her very own Prince Charming. Little does she know that her fated prince would turn out to be the buxom and husky convict who charges in atop a stolen motorbike, claiming to be her mother. The unlikely duo chase down their dreams in the sun-drenched land of Diamandra, navigating through the cacophony of betrayal, poverty, and child exploitation rings hiding in plain sight. However, wind of Michiko's manhunt soon reaches the ears of criminal syndicate Monstro Preto, and a storm of gang warfare begins brewing over the horizon… Michiko to Hatchin is the story of vibrant people and their clashing agendas, and of all the unlikely human connections drawn together by one elusive man.

Proof that women don’t need men to save themselves and have adventures.


Fantastic stuff. Killer artstyle and 2 well written leads. Loved this one from begining to end.


An adventure in Brazil. Great music. Great characters. Unique feeling.


Completely about the journey rather than the destination, so as soon as you understand that you will love this series.


Hey at least it’s better than most Brazilian soap operas.


A thrilling romp through the slums of Brazil, this is the sort of story that we don’t see much in anime, and is completely better for it.


Adventure and heart are what this show has in spades. The sense of familial love hits home. The latino style makes for an unforgettable show
