A new trailer has just been released online for the 2008 spiritual successor to Cowboy Bebop and Samurai Champloo, titled Michiko and Hatchin. Of course, it’s in English and will be released via DVD/Blu Ray combo pack in September. The series is directed by Sayo Yamamoto (Lupin III: A Woman Named Fujiko) and scored by Shinichiro Watanabe. You can watch the trailer below:
The creators of Cowboy Bebop and Samurai Champloo turn squealing tires and wailing sirens into an art form in the south-of-the-border adventures of Michiko & Hatchin. Michiko is a stunning escaped convict with lethal looks and a deadly disrespect for the lawmen trying to hunt her down. Hatchin is a hapless orphan pushed to the breaking point by the sadistic spawn of her fiendish foster parents. On their own, these chicas are nothing more than a Yin searching for its Yang, but when fate – in the form of a mysterious hombre from their past – brings them together, the world better watch out! With the future dead ahead and la policia hot on their heels, Michiko and Hatchin burn rubber through exotic locals where danger lurks around every corner. It’s two against the world in this sun-soaked, Latin-tinged tale of partners in crime who won’t stop running till they chase down a dream.
