Welcome to Fun With Names, where I will be picking apart interesting names in anime! Today's interesting anime name is Michiko Malandro, one of the titular characters of the awesome anime Michiko to Hatchin (Michiko e Hatchin)! Produced by the now-defunct Studio Manglobe (RIP), Michiko to Hatchin is a beautiful anime I'd recommend to everyone and their dog. Partly because I adore Manglobe, the studio that gave us Samurai Champloo and Ergo Proxy too, but more because the anime is, like, totally badass. Michiko to Hatchin shows us the journey of a mother/daughter pair travelling the crime-infested, heat-scorched land of Diamandra in search of someone from their past.
