Michiko to Hatchin has a wellrounded plot that manages to keep it pacing in a area that I found appealing, it allowed for enough focus on the activities that the characters went through in each episode without ever losing sight of the over arching goal. Some part did feel a little slow and only really drove the developement of the characters however this was not a bad thing.
I have nothing to complain about here its all done rather well the chars have differenet clothes for the days that pass and this is oddly refreshing when compared to the abundance of school uniforms and single outfit characters.
The OP is Ok and I haven't actually listened to the ED but I don't think its bad. The sound throughout was used effectively and never detracted from the whole. The sound didn't really stand out that much which can be considered good
This is where I think the show really shines I think the chars a believable and that they stick to how you'd think they would react in each situtaion, they have excelent developement by the end of the show you can tell that the chars are different that they have changed and grown from the events that have happend around them the side characters are done well and the more important ones truely feel like people however some of the characters are bad due to just how great the rest of the cast is it really can be seen a few of the characters really don't fit with the series. One of the biggest let downs is actually the developement of one of the chars its completely ruins what should be the rewarding finale of the series.
Michiko to Hatchin is an excellent Anime that should be watched. It sticks to what it sets out to do and tells a tale that should be experienced.
