Michiko to Hatchin


Michiko to Hatchin is listed (or ranked) 3 on the list The 13 Best Anime Like Black Lagoon

Michiko to Hatchin is a good followup to Black Lagoon, as they both feature strong leading women who know how to kick ass. Another similarity are the Spanish settings, as Black Lagoon takes place in Southeast Asia, while Michiko to Hatchin takes place in South America. Michiko to Hatchin is more optimistic, as the series follows escaped convict Michiko Malandro on the road with a young girl named Hana Morenos, whom she saves from an abusive family.
