Screenshot Saturday: Michiko to Hatchin (Episode 16) Anime 06 MAR 2010

It Michiko to Hatchin time again, episode 16 to be precise, entitled Crimson Faithless Etude just in case you were wondering. And hey, with this particular surprise moment halfway through, there is simply no way the ratings could have stayed down! ;)

You've got to admit, now that was a bit of a surprise!

On their never ending quest to locate Hiroshi Morenos, Michiko’s former lover and quite possibly the father of Hatchin, our two runaways find themselves storming a monster tomato growing research facility where Michiko believes Hiroshi may recently have been working at.

Of course, nothing is ever particular subtle when it comes to Michiko investigating Hiroshi and her interrogation of the head researcher (who appears to have possibly been on intimate terms with Hiroshi) takes a surprise turn for the worst when the woman lunges forward and catches Michiko in a rather passionate embrace – throwing our violent sexy diva completely off her game (and completely lost for words) for a change!

Needless to say, this was probably not a sight Hatchin was hoping to ever see in her lifetime!

(But of course, there was a painful price to pay for stealing that kiss and pretty soon, with the police hot on their hills, Michiko and Hatchin were off, with the next clue to Hiroshi’s current location firmly in their grasp!)

Hey! Watch that wandering hand lady!

Michiko to Hatchin is one roller-coaster of a ride in terms of anime series, always keeping fresh, always pulling out the surprises and genuinely managing to stay original and thoroughly enjoyable. Hence it is no wonder it managed to sneak in for a Screenshot Saturday showing!

Funnily enough, a window will break when you jump a scooter through it...

Towards the end of the first episode of Michiko to Hatchin we have this absolutely fantastic sequence where Michiko comes careening out of nowhere on her over-powered turquoise super scooter, ramping through the big glass window into the unsuspecting evil foster parents’ dining room in order to locate her missing daughter Hatchin.

Now up to this point we’ve been subjected to the sad abuse that poor little Hatchin has had to contend with for each and every day of her miserable life here with the rather worldly priest and his family and so one can’t help but feel utter elation at this sudden and unexpected burst of a ray of sunshine, but at the same time, one can’t help but wonder just what the heck Hatchin has to deal with now.

After all, Michiko is rude, crude, an escaped convict, doesn’t flinch even when bullets whiz by (the priest is a lousy shot anyway) and couldn’t give a toss about what anybody might think of her – in other words not exactly the perfect, happy escape from her life of misery that young Hatchin was hoping for after all…

Um no. No, it's not me you're looking for, honest!
