Alright, babies. I’ve never heard of this anime before today, and judging by the trailer’s views, neither have a lot of anime lovers. Reasons why everyone should watch it right now:

  • The main protagonists are a fine as hell lady of color and her mixed daughter
  • The main antagonist is a super fabulous woman of color, in an actual position of power, who rocks natural hair like a boss
  •  Michiko, the main character, is canonically bi and not a single fuck is given
  • The art is fucking perfect
  • There is an actual coherent and complex plot
  • All the main characters have a billion different costumes and they are all super cosplay worthy
  • There are two full seasons, both of which are already out~

The show is called Michiko & Hatchin and the first episode of the English Dub can be found in full right HERE.

The second is HERE. The third episode is right HERE.
And the whole seasons are available on Funimation and Amazon.

WHOA, YES! You are doing yourself a huge disservice as an anime fan if you don’t give this show it’s fair shake. I marathonned all 22 episodes in one shot, I just could not put it down.

It said from the creators of Cowboy Bebop and Samurai Champloo, so I’m sold.

I was born in this hospital.  I’m assuming it was less creepy then.

If that boy’s still walking, it’s because you let him go.

Does George R.R. Martin have a twitter?

Because I find it hard to believe he could have 140 characters alive at the end of a sentence.

Wisconsin scored a 238 when it came to its ability to prepare black children for educational and financial success, the lowest of all states (the average score was 345). Interestingly, Wisconsin was ranked 10th overall in terms of its preparation for white children.
