Author's Notes: 100Moods is a Live Journal writing community. I chose Michiko to Hatchin as I love the show and enjoy delving into the characters' thoughts and feelings. I took some creative liberties. The majority of the drabbles are written to theme of moods, but few aren't. Drabbles are exactly 100 words each.

Each drabble has the episode that it take place in or is inspired by. I thought this would be helpful since many characters appear in only one or two episodes of the series. Some drabbles are based on more than one episode, while others are "unseen scenes." Episode titles are taken from the DVD. On Wikipedia, most titles are the same except for some. For example, Wikipedia has ""Run with It" for the final episode, and the DVD states "Run with the Truth". I wanted to explain this, in case there is any confusion.

Michiko to Hatchin finally got licensed by Funimation, so this terrific (and underrated) anime will receive the exposure it deserves. It's supposed to come out in 2013. Having it dubbed in English will bring it to a larger audience. Hopefully, the English dubs will match the characters well and give the anime justice.

Dedication: For my friend, Tommy. You can do anything you put your mind to. Singing—and writing!

Episode 11 – Start Line for the Downpour!

The beginnings of Hatchin's culinary career had been painful to endure when she lived with her abusive foster family, the Belenbauza Yamadas. They never appreciated her efforts and were ignorant of her talent.

As time went on, her determination to prove herself and her cooking talent captured others' attention and their taste buds. After much difficulty, she finally earned the respect of the restaurant owner, Ran Yin.

Later, Hatchin received her best compliment after cooking a delicious meal of spicy shrimp with white jasmine rice for Rita. Smiling, Rita told her she should be the cook!

Hatchin felt quite accomplished.
