posted on 2008-08-18 17:05 EDT by Egan Loo
The official Japanese website for the Michiko to Hatchin anime series has begun streaming its second trailer today. Unlike the first trailer, this new two-minute video contains significant amounts of actual footage from the series. The title's Michiko Malandro (center photograph) is a free-spirited "sexy diva" who destroys a supposedly inescapable prison fortress, while Hana "Hatchin" Morenos (top photograph) is a girl fleeing her strict foster parents. The two join forces on an improbable escape to freedom, with a woman named Atsuko Jackson in hot pursuit.
The trailer highlights the series script supervisor Takashi Ujita (live-action Freesia film), character designer Hiroshi Shimizu (animation director on Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex 2nd GIG, Magical Shopping Arcade Abenobashi), music composer Kassin, music producer Shinichiro Watanabe (Cowboy Bebop, Samurai Champloo), and director Sayo Yamamoto (episode director on Samurai Champloo, Ergo Proxy). The trailer also emphasizes that this "next-generation collaboration of Latino beat animation" is the third original anime project from Samurai Champloo and Ergo Proxy's manglobe studio. Michiko to Hatchin premieres in Japan in October.
