Michiko & Hatchin is a Japanese animated television series. The show is produced by studio Manglobe and directed by Sayo Yamamoto, her first directorial work. The two eponymous starring roles are portrayed by noted Japanese film actresses Yōko Maki and Suzuka Ohgo. The story takes place in a fictional country of Diamandra which has cultural traces from South American countries, mostly from Brazil. In the first episode, Michiko is introduced as a free-willed "sexy diva" who escapes from a supposedly inescapable prison fortress, while Hatchin is a girl fleeing her abusive foster family. The two join forces on an improbable escape to freedom. The music is composed by the Brazilian musician Alexandre Kassin and produced by Shinichirō Watanabe. Vitello Productions and GONG produced an English dub pilot of the anime under the name Finding Paradiso which was later used as the name for the French dub. The anime was later licensed by Funimation in North America which produced another English dub. The series premiered in an English dub on Funimation Channel in North America on 22 November 2013, and on Adult Swim's Toonami block from 20 June 2015 to 12 December 2015.
