That’s it folks!! In this episode, we discussed many topics such as womxn friendships, inspirations and how we would pitch the series to anyone.  It was a lot of fun chatting about this series with the AnimeFeminist team and I would highly recommend for everyone to support their work because they prioritize marginalized voices in the nerd community.  Please listen to this final episode on AnimeFeminist.

If folks thought I was done talking about Michiko to Hatchin, they were wrong.  I feel very humble that I was invited by the AnimeFeminst team to discuss the series in depth with other amazing folks about this show.  I was so nervous in this episode that you can literally hear me stuttering throughout this entire episode.  I hope listeners were able to understand what I was desperately trying to say.  There were a lot of heavy topics we discussed such as Mejorando la Raza, Sexual Violence, Police Brutality, etc. so please be advised that these episodes have trigger warnings.   Please listen to this episode on AnimeFeminist.

This review focused on the mini history on how Sayo Yamamoto got inspired to make Michiko to Hatchin and how the series was able to discuss the complex racial hierarchies in Latin America and the Carribean through fictional Brazil.  Please check out this article on ShojoPower.
