"Michiko & Hatchin is a very unique series, featuring a very under explored section of the world, at least in terms of anime. While this set may only be the first half of the series, it is certainly off to a great start providing plenty of interesting main and side characters. This is a series with strong females characters that almost anyone can enjoy that exist within a vibrant and gritty world. While only a Part 1, it leaves very high hopes for Part 2."
