Mai Otome 04

I’d gladly blog Mai Otome full, but this job is best left to Mentar and co., besides I’m scared of myself. I take screencaps close to the high hundreds everytime I blog Mai Otome. So instead, I’ll put up fanboy rants important plot plots instead.

– Haruka and Yukino rules. Period.

– Otome’s can’t have sex with the opposite gender, due to unknown effects on the nanomachines. At this point, I actually had to stop and take a 30-min breather due to the fact my brain exploded with HAADO YURI!!!!!! thoughts random speculations.

Chibi Nina chou kawaiii~~~!!!!!!

– Sunrise should die. They *shouldn’t* put in the revelation that Otomes are HAADO YURI!!! forbidden to have sex with the opposite gender *and* the bath scene in the same episode. I almost died from anemia, goddamnit.

– Mysterious cloaked figure with Rado in Episode 3 now has a 50-50 chance to be either Mai or Midori.

– Rivalling pairs : Haruka and Shizuru, Natsuki and Mai(?)

– Fumi Cameo : Natsuki’s table in her office. It’s a permanent fixture.

Based on the four episodes out now, it seems Mai Otome is heading to FMP? Fummoffu’s status. I wouldn’t mind as it was the dear wish of all Mai HiME fans (apart from animating the audio drama CD’s). There’s hints of seriousness to come, but so far the show hasn’t even taken itself seriously, as nicely put by Mentar.

    Now I think you’ve misunderstood my comment – which was based on the funny scene when Haruka plays space javelin with the glider. These are the scenes when the Mai Universe’s ability to mock itself shine through (an ability which I really like)

    I strongly disagree to Mai Otome becoming to Mai HiME what Fumoffu was to FMP. Absolutely 100% not. Otome has already laid out many very serious plotlines which are being developed, and the more we learn about Nina’s backstory, the sadder it becomes. If we compare all this to the original MH’s first 4 episodes, Otome is _much_ more serious and much darker overall. I think it’s a valid full AU-sequel which fans of MH can approve. It is NO Fumoffu-style all-comedy sidekick. As much as I love Fumoffu – MO is a full story on its own.

    Hmm, good points there. Well, i was blogging it in fanboy mode, so it’s really very screwed ^_^.

    I agree with the point that MO is much more serious than MH was. I might have misdefined your comment there, but I meant as a tribute to your mastery of the Mai Universe :). I was a bit too..errmm… ‘overstimulated’ by this episode. Dunno why, the revelation of “no-sex-with-guys” snapped something in my brain, hard, very very hard.

    But still, I do remember that a Fumoffu-style spinoff was dearly wanted by all Mai-HiME fans (me included), especially during the killing spree arc. I strongly felt that Sunrise added in the extra humour for this series due to our wishes, haha. I dunno why, I just find it really good, just for the appearence of the old HiME characters ;).
