A week ago at MomoCon, Adult Swim had announced that two new shows are coming to Toonami!
First up, on June 20th, 2015, Funimation’s Michiko & Hatchin. After escaping from prison, the sexy criminal Michiko rescues an abused girl known as Hatchin. The two are about as opposite as they come, but their fates become intertwined through the connection of a man from both their pasts. On the run from the police and Hatchin’s abusive foster parents, the unlikely duo set out to find this man and ultimately discover their freedom.
Next up, the English adaptation of ‘Akame ga KILL!’ from Sentai Filmworks will premier on August 8th, 2015, and for those that don’t know, it’s adapted from the original manga written by Takahiro and illustrated by Tetsuya Tashiro, Akame ga Kill! follows a desperate team of assassins known as Night Raid, as they take on the brutal tyranny of a corrupt empire.
Funimation has already streamed the entire run of M&H and you can watch it here, and AGK will be Sentai Filmworks’ first anime series on Toonami so congrats to them.
